    LOL - it's been a hell of a couple weeks. Hoping to catch up on some sleep this week.

    Me too! Hopefully sooner than later.

    What I love most about it is that it's something anyone can have and not just a concept.

    Simply awesome
    Out in a place like Moab, even a stock JT would do well. Add a bit of a lift and bigger tires and it rocks out there.

    LOL - I hear ya but this is a must have

    I hope to have one, but it won't happen this year.
    Might be a good thing to wait especially being that so many dealerships are charging such a big premium for one.

    I noticed Mel didn't point out the hydro-assist and no manufacturer logo on it
    I'm pretty sure he did on a previous video. It is a PSC and the very first one for the JT.

    Great job and Thank you for sharing
    So glad that would could share this with you

    Well, a hair over a week but essentially, yes, crazy! We ran several different trails and all on the north end of town to make this video.

    Hard to beat what you can get for the money.

    Stock, they're kind of funny looking for sure. Built up like this and it'd be hard for anyone not to like it.

Just out of curiosity, are there any plans to be able to retain reverse camera functionality in the future with a tire carrier like that? I would think it would be much more difficult to work it out than a jk or jl being that the tailgate doesn’t swing out as well.
    Mel was wanting to relocate the camera in the spare like the JL but ran out of time.

    Who says you can’t wheel a pickup truck?...
    With a bit of lift and bigger tires, all things are equal

    In a place like Moab, a long wheel base is an advantage.

    It really does a great job of making that weird dead space go away. I will have to do something like this to my JT too

    Someone at Discount Tire must have shelved it. Haven't seen it around in a while. Shame.

    They're big but perfect for a truck like this.

    I have to say that is pretty damn impressive. This appears to solve a lot of the issues we had with the JK and a family of 4+. Of course it doesn't solve my lack of time issue, but I'm glad I haven't pulled the tigger on the second luxury car I've been lusting after. I really don't want to justify having more cars than drivers again.

    Thanks for posting this up.
    LOL - glad that we could share this with you

    While it might have a harder time on a trail like the Rubicon, out in Moab, the long wheel base is a huge benefit.

    I can't wait until you guys get yours and see what you do with it.
    LOL - I can't wait either! Trying really hard to get our hands on one and as soon as possible.

    Honestly, if you're into big trucks, it'd be hard to beat something like this.

    Looked like a great day out there!
    Honestly, a long wheel base is a big plus out in a place like Moab.

    Two Jeeps are already taking up plenty of cash to build, I couldn't imagine 3!
    LOL - one can never have too many Jeeps

    But it will need replaced one day. Look out when the diesel arrives.
    Only thing about the diesel is that I'm pretty sure it'll have a LOWER towing capacity than the 3.6L. This is due to its inability to keep cool. There are other drawbacks as well like the size of the engine.

    Well kids, it’s junior college for you!

    LOL - hoping to get ours sooner than later

    LOL - it's a funny thing but pretty much everyone in the industry refers to a Jeep as a car.

    It really is an amazing build.

    You bet! Glad you like what you see

    It really is a great idea and glad that he was able to pull it off

    I would love one in the Gobi color. Wish they offered a more powerful engine as well.
    You should try driving one and with an 8-speed auto. I think you'll find that it isn't too bad as is.

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.
