    VIDEO : OP ED - Are 5.13 Gears Needed with 37 Inch Tires on a JL Wrangler... and MORE

    I get a lot of people asking me a ton of questions on a regular basis and rather than let them get lost somewhere in cyberspace, Cindy and I decided to start answering them on our YouTube channel and in an all new series we're calling, OP ED. Essentially, we'll be creating videos where you'll get to hear exactly what I think and get my 2¢ on all sorts of topics regarding Jeeps and all based on the questions I've been getting. In this very first episode of OP ED, I'll be taking on the question of, "do I need to re-gear my JL Wrangler with 37" tires?" As an added BONUS, you'll even get to see something special, a kind of easter egg and totally unrelated to gears or tires, if you stick around to the very end. We hope you enjoy.

    Thanks for the insight on the gears, looking fwd to seeing how mine feels with 4.10 and 37s but good to know that it's not necessary to regear.

    Very cool at the end there, looking fwd to seeing more and seeing their build!

    Cool new series. OP ED. I see what you did there.

    Look forward to seeing the JT on some dirt.

    I know you did the Dynatrac axle, but it’d be interesting to get some pros/cons to the Dana axles Mel is using on some of his lower budget builds. Maybe a JT review on future?
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Great video and it revealed to me that 4.10 on 35s will be more than adequate on a JL ... now back to bed to keep dreaming.

    Can't wait to see that JT build up (not to big on 40s).

    Love the new series you guys have put together. You always do an outstanding job of giving back to the Jeep community with all your tips.

    We look forward to many more fantastic videos as your series progresses.

    Nice to see our friends Mel and Cindy Wade as well. They are a blast to hang out with and do a great job out racing and building excellent parts.

    Great video, I’m having a similar issue with my WJ. I plan on redoing my track bar and mounts here soon. Hopefully that will help, and tame the bump steer as well.

    Really looking forward to seeing the JT build.

    Seems like the 8sp Auto really makes up for larger tires a fair bit.

    I just today saw a Gladiator in person at the auto show. It's going to look ridiculously good on 40s.

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.
