    VIDEO : JL JOURNAL - EVO Tire Carrier Installation

    Soon after installing a heavy 37" spare on the factory tire carrier of our Jeep JL Wrangler, Cindy and I had a myriad of people declare that we were for sure, going to jack up our tailgate. Of course, they said they saw it on social media and so it had to be true. I literally had guys trolling me about it on YouTube and demanded that I admit, we would bend or break our tailgate in 6 months or less. It was just nuts! Well, 8 months after the fact - I'm happy to say that our tailgate was still holding up just fine and without any bending or breaking of any kind. However, I'd be lying if I said this setup was a perfect solution. As some of you know, we spend an enormous amount of time bombing across the desert and hard hits would in fact cause the tailgate to move just enough, to make an annoying knocking sound. Needless to say, this was something we wanted to address and did so, with an EVO Tire Carrier. In this episode of the JL JOURNAL, you get to see to install, one on your Jeep JL Wrangler. Thanks for watching and we hope you find our video to be helpful.

    Looks great, great install video too. Certainly seems like a good bit of work, but I will still be installing one down the road. Thanks for sharing

    Great video Eddie and Cindy. I’ve been curious how well the one for the JK holds up.

    Stock works but this is a much better solution for sure.

    Fortunately, you only have to install it once.

    Great install video as usual. Also great job on editing and I like the music bits . That carrier looks good on the JL. I can totally see myself breaking that camera extension bracket thing, whatever you want to call it, if I would ever have to put that 37s up there by myself . Is that camera extension metal or plastic?

    It's plastic. Strong but plastic.

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.
