    VKS has a nice front bumper. I just got the V3 Shorty. I wanted a very small front with a counter sink winch. There aren’t many out there that I liked.
    I wanted no bull bar or stinger. No fog lights and an small as possible. Their quality is great and the owner is very responsive and helpful with anything you need.

    I really don’t think EVO has copied anyone in their designs. They always set the bar with their products and have been around for a long time.
    The VKS V3 is a nice looking, small bodied, 2 piece (strength?) stubby bumper that might be the exception for them although they have several similar design variations of it.
    VKS does have nice welds, but so does my EVO 1/4 Pounder and after seeing what some of our other members 1/4 Pounders have gone through with crashes on the street and the 1/4 Pounder seeming to have saved them and their Jeep, that’s what helped me decide.
    EVO is top notch as well as LOD.

    I run their standard sliders on my 2 door, they are all quality.
    -Yes they look nearly identical to EVO's.
    -They are also nearly identical in quality for significantly less money and still made here in the US.

    VKS is known for their designs resembling many other manufacturers. Essentially stealing designs rather than creating their own.

    That's odd. To me they look about as close in resemblance as VKS sliders do to EVO's.
    What about the boatsides? Disregarding that one?

    Well one was a spider logo and one has an evo logo, so obviously they are completely different.

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.
