    Great video Cindy and Eddie! Thank you for showing us. There really is no better peace of mind on the road or trail than being prepared and knowing how to fix something.

    Actually, what you see in the video are actually cans made for night vision goggles. They originally came with thick foam padding inside. What I love about them is that they're the perfect size for tall things like gear oil.

    You know, the JL is mighty fast too

    How did you figure out what the real problem was?

    This also shows the value of never leaving without being prepared to work on most anything.
    I'm embarrassed to say that it took a while for me to figure it out. It ultimately took me reading through the tech notes that Atlas has to get an idea where to start looking.

    LOL!! I think that's most people. Fortunately, Moby is powerful and super stable.

    Maybe in our JL’s right?!

    Neat video Cindy and Eddie. Loved the “roadside” setting, cowboy and all.
    The cowboy visit was a nice treat for us for sure. We actually talked for quite a while and found that his horse was a rescue from a BLM round up. As far as speed goes, the JL with the all new 8-speed automatic will get you moving for sure. This is super nice in places like Nevada, Utah and Texas where we have 80 MPH highways and tractor trailers ready to roll you over if you aren't moving at that speed.

    easy enough fix, wondering if the same thing could be on the 3.8 JK?

    I've noticed a slight shake when letting off the gas pedal at higher fix has been to not go so fast lol

    definitely going to make the check since it's so simple, thanks!
    The rattling in the shift lever is an Atlas issue. Unless you've got one, I doubt it would be what you're experiencing.

    LOL!! Now that would have been funny.

    For better or for worse, a Jeep as old as Moby and one that's been punished as much as he's been, you kinda have to be prepared for the problems that come with it.

    I am always awe struck with the level of preparedness you and Cindy bring with you on the trails. It wouldn't surprise me if you had a slushie machine for a cool drink on hot days and a GP Medium military tent to cover Moby while you make repairs in the rain. Plus the mechanical knowledge you two possess.

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.
