    Hello from Spokane, WA

    Been on here long enough, I figure I should finally say hello. Live in Eastern Washington and picked up my 2014 JKUR in May of 2017. It had the 2.5" AEV lift already installed and nice Warn sitting at home in the front bumper when I picked it up. First thing was to swap out the tires for BFG 305/70R17 AT's on the stock Rubi rims, pull the ends off the Hardrock bumper, and give it a good cleaning - pick below. Since then, I have had a bit of fun:

    Regeared to 4.88
    ProComp LED headlights - major improvement
    Aluminum fenders and front inserts
    Tuffy under seat storage - driver side
    Tuffy rear storage box - great for summertime
    Smittybilt 76858 rear bumper
    1.5" wheel spacers - took care of the little bit of rub from the 305's
    Cooper STT 37x12.50x17 MT's (cuz they were on sale ) - between the spacers and the backspacing, the little bit of rub was fixed with 2 washers per side on the steering stops
    Vision Raptor 17x9 Rims because no local shop would install the new tires on a 7.5" rim - been doing that for 30 years.........
    Magnaflow mid-dump exhaust
    Superchips tuner for tire size and gears
    Pulled spare tire for now and moved plate to center of gate
    Rugged ridge hood latches
    Mesh screen for when the top is off
    Misc skids underneath
    Shortened the OEM sliders
    and I am sure a bunch of other little stuff that I am forgetting right now.

    Second is a more recent picture after the tires were updated in December and then a shot of the rim/tire combo and clearance (not sure what the deal with the pic is. I tried rotating it and it keeps putting it the same way).

    This is my second Wrangler, last was an 04 2-door, other rigs have normally been full-size trucks and my old 78 K5. Used to live down in western Oregon an wheeled a lot there in the Florence dunes and Tillamook ORV. I enjoy doing as much work as I can myself. The only thing that I haven't done myself to this rig is installing the gears and tire mount and balance. Site has been helpful and appreciate the humor found as well.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
