    What Jerry said. There are already 1-piece kits available now and I'm sure more are coming. A Tazer will be able to bypass the FAD too.

    I somehow doubt it but I'll bet someone comes out with something like it and or it being part of a truss.

    Excellent video!

    Considering what Jeep does with everything else on the Rubicon you would think they'd just put some manual hubs on there. Save us all money in the long run.

    Very informative! Was always wondering what would happen if you got rid of the fad and how the computer would react. Glad to know you don’t need to do anything with the t case as well like dynatrac initially thought

    I'm pretty sure Jeep did it for the bulk of people who'll buy even a Rubicon and never use it for what it's capable of. Most people who will use 4WD at sometime or another even have a hard time with shifting the transfer case.

    It really is a good thing too. If that were the case, it would have made doing an axle swap a lot more time consuming and expensive.

    Right? We should be thankful Jeep still makes them with a TC lever and not just a button on the dash like most 4wd vehicles these days.

    That's how it's like on pretty much every other Jeep made including the Cherokee. The fact that we still have a mechanical transfer case lever is nothing short of amazing to me.

    As far as I know the wrangler is the only vehicle left with the T/C lever. In the states at least.

    That was my thought as well but I wasn't 100% sure.

    Give me a lever. At least when you are a hundred miles from nowhere, you can fix it when it don't work.

    I would rather have hubs too. Give me options so I can get back when things go wrong.

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.
