    My policy is to keep it muddy. Nobody notices faded fenders on a muddy Jeep.

    Not sure if anyone else has used this but its pretty freakin amazing. Its like a think oil and dries like nothing ive ever seen, actually bonds to the plastic molecules. Used it in 2016, still all black, no fading.

    If I had colour match fenders they’d look like shit from all the scratches from off-roading in our BC forest. Same reason JL fenders wouldn’t have much lighting left.

    The good news is you change wheels every year so we can actually date the picture by the wheels. Lol

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.
