    I would rather have hubs too. Give me options so I can get back when things go wrong.
    I hear ya. It actually frustrates me that the automatic shift lever on the JL is drive by wire.

    It also don't seem right how the manual shift mode is either.

    In the JK, right and left to shift, then if you need reverse, especially in a hurry, it is straight forward.

    Now, on the JL, you have to move the lever to the side for manual, then if reverse is needed, you have to go back to the auto mode before moving forward to reverse.

    If you were in a bad spot, and need reverse NOW, it will not be easy.

    Great video. I wish someone would design manual hubs for the JK and JL. I think there would be a market for it.

    Actually, there are companies that already make and sell kits. They just cost a small fortune.

    Your right. I had just assumed that they weren’t out there because I haven’t seen any or heard about it. You know what they say about assume.

    I'm enjoying all of your JL videos, even though I'll probably never own one. I think it's good to stay abreast of technology and other improvements. I average about 20 years between vehicles. My 2014 JK is a big come-upance electronics wise from my 99 Chevy, as it was from my 76 Ramcharger. Who knows what's going to be around in the 2030s, though by then I may be looking for a hoveround.

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.
