    Wait what do you need skid plates for? I didn’t think the mall had curbs that big?



    Looks good!!! Been waiting for those to come out

    Stainless air locker lines. I keep forgetting I NEED those! Thanks for the reminder. Skids look nice. I'm with you on the clearance though. Shelf drop offs will test them out nicely!

    Those look good.

    One more thing I need on the list for the JL.

    While I love all the great advice, my wallet is starting to hate it every time I visit Wayalife 🤣🤣

    Can't wait to get out on the trail again

    Engine/transmission plate looks good. Protects those vulnerable transmission lines.

    The exhaust loop plate I’m not sure about. Looks like something that will fold up and jam into the loop before long.

    To be honest, I've never felt a need for aftermarket skidplates in a place like Moab. At least, it's pretty hard to do something like hook a cooler line on slickrock.

    LOL!! It's for the rogue shopping carts.

    Stainless braided air lines are the only way to go.

    I'll have to be honest and say that the exhaust loop skid was kind of a pain to install too. Fitment was super tight or at least, where the one bolt secures it to the engine skid. Also, I didn't get any kind of hardware to secure it the one hole on the outer edge to the frame rail. A flagged nut and bolt would have been nice to have with this. I was able to use a serrated nut I had in my hardware bin to help out but it took a bit to get it installed. Of course, I'm concerned about when I need to remove things in the future for servicing things. We'll see how things go but I may just remove it and run the engine skid alone.

    Are you taking over/unders on this yet.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    I definitely see what you’re saying about the ground clearance, or lack of. They do look purdy without scratches. Time to throw some ugly on them!

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.
