    Tell me I'm wrong

    so, here in Austin there is a very active facebook group. its where most of the meet ups and trail runs originate around here. there's a number of shops that post on there. some good. some bad. a lot of utter crap is posted on there, and I mean utter crap by "professional" shops. i rarely say anything.

    but, there's a shop that just opened up in the Austin area who have become super active on there. which is fine, but today i got annoyed. someone posted up 10 TPMS sensors for free on the group. what happened?

    the aforementioned shop jumped in immediately, we'll take them all! now, i don't need the sensors. mine are fine. but, to me, a Jeep business should not be claiming first dibs on Jeep parts. so, i made a comment about it. calling it a joke.

    they jumped in after i said it to say they were going to be installed free on some other persons Jeep. which maybe they were, maybe they weren't. honestly, i don't think that matters.

    i think it is poor form.

    I happen to agree with you! If it was for a customer they should have tagged the customer to claim them.

    what weird post to come back to 4 years later and you don't seem to live in Austin. so, that's even weirder.

    anyway, i don't have any beef with them. i do have problem with companies like that in general and felt compelled to say something. i see it in my multiple groups i'm a part of not just Jeep stuff.

    if Bubba was out there snagging stuff, i would say the same thing.

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.
