    I was referring to what was beneath your handle. Regardless, if your going to post up unhelpful comments at least make them funny and worthy of a chuckle, otherwise what good are you. There has GOT to be something better you can offer.

    For example what is a typical JL owner? lol Here's your chance, at least make it funny or again just buzz away.

    If you want to graduate from YOU, how about experience with the rocker guard in the video? The Artec skid plate.

    No direct experience with the ones mentioned but I watched the video since you seemed pretty adamant about that. They say extensively tested and then slowly lift the Jeep with the forklifts. That’s a far cry from the force of coming down hard on a rock. I’d be concerned about them flexing into the body and causing damage which is why i prefer a direct frame mount, weld on solution.

    I'm not all that worried about price. The alum skid from Artec is 2k and I'm likely going that route.
    I’m sure they’ll do alright for what you’re wanting, but I have to say the biggest thing the video did was pick the jeep up from the slider, which IMO should be a requirement of anything marketed as a slider. Picking it up gently is completely different than coming down on on it with momentum and force.

    I think you’ll be better off to go ahead with their signature series or the Evo low angle.
    I can attest to the Signature, my dad took a diagonal hit from a semi and the signature series saved his life

    You are hopeful?...hehe... clearly you don't know him...

    Better not pack spare parts or tools or food or passengers. The trade off in performance would be catastrophic. Maybe a spool of thread rather than a winch...

    Weight is a killer for performance on and off road. If wheeling hard core trails where even the most protected vehicles get damaged, yeah you go with the best protection you can get despite the weight since the bennys outweigh the disadvantage of weight. But this isnt what I'm going to be doing.

    The Artec alum skid plate is a full belly plate. It's net weight is 10lbs. Their claim is it is stouter then metal. I dont believe it but it for sure it protects better then the stock stuff AND I get 3/4 inch more clearance.

    I have seen other full belly'd skids for close to 300 pounds. For what I'm doing there is an easy choice.
    Better hope you never have a leak. You'll never know.

    This brings up a good point. If he completely drained all the fluids from his Jeep completely, gas, coolant and all oils from the engine, transfer case and diffs, that would lighten things up significantly. I can’t even begin to calculate the performance gains there. I wonder if he’s considered paper mache rather than the overly bulky stock metal body? Just brainstorming here.

    Yep. May be a good time to discuss a crankshaft removal kit as well. Those fuckers are heavy.

    Axles are probably the heaviest parts on the Jeep. Dump those and go with some takeoffs from a Powerwheels Jeep and call it a day. 😂

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.
