    Yeah.. I'm with you... scary shit... My kid (10) can't even keep his shoe tied and he's going to be operating a vehicle in 5 years.. But my plan is to give him my JKUR (if he deserves it) and he is going wheeling with me whether he likes it or not! lol

    Sad to see it go I'm sure, but the JL is a great place holder. You will make many more memories with that.

    My 17yo step son drives my jeep regularly. He does take pride in it, but won't stay out of the damn mud...haha. Unfortunately he got his first ticket two weeks ago for the license plate being slightly obscured. The CHP said he couldn't clearly see the last digit due to my tire carrier latch. He didn't write the tinted windows, no mud flaps which he pointed out. Those are fix-it items. Instead writes the ticket which had a fine. He didn't even point out the missing front plate. I will cover the fine because it wasn't his fault. I may fight it considering you can see it clearly from the majority of the angles. We'll see. I think the cop used it as PC for the stop hoping to get a bigger issue.

    Dude. I hear you on the insurance.

    Iíd have to unbuild this one to get it to something he would half enjoy. If he or my daughter were begging me to keep it, Iíd reconsider.

    Getting rid of it isnít easy. Someone else is going to get far more enjoyment out of it.

    And Iíll be able to get my daughter into her Jeep she really wants.

    I only have the premium top thatís on it. Sold the hard top little over a year ago.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    It will be easier to drop coin on the JL when the JK isnt staring me in the face every day just sitting there.

    And there are few mild built JLs rolling around town now. So mine rolling stock is giving me the itch. Lol.

    My daughter wants a Jeep for sure. It may not be a Wrangler, but it will be something we can still hit dirt in. And Iím looking forward to that day.

    Thatís the plan. Just turning the page, not closing the book. It does have a sad element, wonít lie. My daughter told me tonight ďthat will always our first Jeep.Ē

    My son is already asking how much it would cost for him to move to 37ís or 40ís.

    Drive up here for the weekend and we will do a big swap party. My son will end up on 37ís with an Enforcer and you will have a 2.75Ē lift with 35ís. Iíll pay you $1k for the swap and do the work...and we can drink some 🥃🥃. You can keep your Jeep and your son will love it. Thatís a win/win.

    Edit: oh, and my insurance almost tripled. Canít wait to insure another boy in 1.5 years.

    Fortunately ours didn't triple. It did go up by about 50% though. Ironically it was the cheapest to list the Jeep as his primary vehicle to get the lowest rate...haha.

    You are not helping make this easier. Lol. For the moment, Iíll stick with plan A.

    I have twins. In high school. That bandaid is going to hurt like mofo when cars and insurance hit the budget.

    It looks like a great deal. I think you should jump on it. Iím seriously contemplating it, but Iíd want to take my back to stock and sell it before moving on anything else.

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.
