    No mistake on that, I don't disagree. And it's amazing to watch. But at +-$1,000 per tire, whatever rims would cost and the associated axle and suspension costs necessary.....it's a bit out of most peoples price ranges.

    Not sure where you got your numbers from, but nittos trail grapplers in the 40” flavor are closer to $400 per tire. Still expensive but not nearly what you’re claiming.

    Pay closer attention to the video. The entire purpose of this build was to show what you could get by spending about the same price as what you would spend for a very minimally modified Rubicon. All in, about $60-65k for this truck is pretty amazing.

    That is well within the price range of just about anyone who would have bought a Rubicon, a mild lift, and new tires/wheels. It’s very easy to put $10-$15k into a Rubicon with just the basics.

    Bottom line, this truck is better equipped than a Rubicon for not really that much more money.

    Roger that...

    But adding the Hellephant Hemi would be a couple quid more...

    Normally the 40” nittos are around $400.00. But if you go back to the previous video Mel talks about running the sticky compound competition Nittos. So yeah, close to $1000 per tire depending where you go.

    This was what I was basing my comment off of. I’m sure stickies would be $1000/tire if you could get them, but to my knowledge you can’t. At least from Nitto that 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.
