    VIDEO : EVO UP - The Beginning of a Badass JEEP GLADIATOR Pickup Truck Build

    After a fun filled weekend of testing EVO's brand new Jeep Gladiator Sport pickup truck off-road, Cindy and I headed down to their shop in Fullerton, CA and to see the beginning of a truly badass build. With less than two weeks before the Moab Easter Jeep Safari, there was a ton of work that needed to get done especially being that this truck will ultimately be sitting on a set of 40" tires. In this short video, you'll get a behind the scenes look at everything getting torn down, see some of the parts that'll be going into it such as an EVO lift kit and a set of Dana UD60 axles and you'll even get to hear some of the other plans that Mel has in store for it. We hope you enjoy and be sure to check back during EJS to see the completed build.

    Exciting times to be a Jeep enthusiast!! Are they putting those axels on the Rubicon model? They sound like a pretty sweet option.

    Going big is the way to go for the JT. Thatís going to look beastly. Maybe Iíll get one in four years when my JL is paid off.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Nah, this is a Sport. When all is said and done, Mel is gonna try to get this thing built up for about the same cost as a loaded Rubicon.

    Well, if you're wanting it to perform more like a Wrangler, yes. Otherwise, it'll do great as a pickup truck just as is

    I was referencing more the former than the latter.

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.
