    Great video. I wonder what impact the removal of the FAD is having on the MPG vs the gears.

    Thatís some great info! Very cool of you guys to start a series. Taco Killer is a good name for sure for the Melís Gladiator.

    Great video!

    Iím going to regear my 6 speed mt soon but having trouble deciding between 4.88 and 5.13. Iíll be running 37ís (just ordered). Have any of you regeared a manual? I like the idea of 5.13 but worry about the ring and pinion.

    Great video. Despite many suggesting 5.13, I chose 4.88 because I value mpg and highway top speeds .. honestly like the added zip off the line but having driven the Jeep with 35s with 4.1 gearing, it was definitely tolerable

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
