    Great video and the carrier looks nice. I literally laughed out loud though when you pulled the small bits out of the box, put them on the box, then removed the carrier and the box fell off onto the ground. That was soooo something that would happen to me. 🥃

    It does look pain in the ass but hey what wouldn’t we do for our jeeps. I am actually surprised that by removing stock hinges there is no paint there

    The JK ones work great or at least, of the ones I've seen.

    If you watch the video more carefully, you'll see that I removed most of the stuff prior to pulling the carrier out. But, yeah, it still fell

    It's a lot of steps for sure but well worth it.

    It's always like that. Take off any hinge and you'll see there's no paint.

    I really like EVO’s take on the hinged carrier. Way better than the other options out and, after seeing how clean it looks on Clearskies JK, I may ditch my poison spider body mount carrier and go back to a hinged carrier.

    Good video Cindy and Eddie. It looks like a lot of work but definitely worth it I’m sure. I’m definitely leaning towards this style of carrier for my JKU.

    This is what I was thinking.

    Anything other than the tape to help keep things aligned or is there really no way around making the adjustments.

    Glad you posted this up. It’s on the short list of mods. BTW, 40s........you suck. Can you just keep one Jeep at a normal build please. First you went all DTD and 40s withrubicat and now you’re already talking 40s with jet.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Lol I did the same thing. Watched the box start to tip and fall and I yelled “TIMMMMBBBERRRRRR!” To myself

    Great video Eddie! Many steps to get this installed but well worth it I’m sure.

    I won't lie, I had my doubts about it when they came out with the JK one but I've since seen how well they hold up and even take a beating and decided to give it a try on our JL. So far, we've been very happy with ours.

    Well, a lot of steps for sure and it takes a while to install but it's far from hard. Well worth it to me anyway.

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.
