    The EVO Gladiator was truly impressive. Seeing how well it performed and how awesome it looks really makes me want one.

    Great video Eddie. I really like the yellow JKU in the video, however I think it needs some suspension enhancements. 😉

    Once again Eddie and Cindy pulled off another amazing, entertaining video. It was cool to see the EVO Gladiator in action on one of my favorite trails in Moab. Mel did a fantastic job showcasing the ability of the Gladiator.

    That weather reminds me of Moab a couple of years ago when it was raining in town and the snow was only about 20 minutes away in the LaSalle mountains. It mad for a fun snow ride.

    Thank you for taking us along.

    40's really are a perfect size for the Gladiator.

    And yes , it still was a good day...that Gladiator is sweet...
    It was a tough run to try and capture anything especially being that other cameras had priority but we did our best.

    That gladiator preformed beautifully going up those ledges. That extra length does have its benefits. It was crazy seeing that built Ram running right behind you. It looked like it did alright.

    Thanks for taking us along!
    LOL!! Nothing working while driving and sleepless nights can't make possible. But, when you're eager to share what you've seen with the world, it makes it a lot easier to do.

    As far as the RAM goes, yeah, it did pretty well but then, it was also built up

    Always a good day to be out in a place like Moab

    LOL - honestly, 35's will be fine but I think you won't really be happy unless you're on at least 37's.

    The EVO Gladiator is so baddess. Just looks so right on 40s.
    eh, it's all good. Not like we haven't run the trail a ton of times in the past. We were just hoping to get more footage of the Gladiator and on obstacles like the drop. Still, we had a great time.

    You really need to test drive a JL with a 3.6L and an 8-speed transmission. I think you'll be surprised at how much more powerful it feels over an old JK. Sure, it's no HEMI but it's a LOT better than a JK 3.6L or 3.8L.

    A lot to think about for sure now that this thing is out

    We did not place an order for one but we are hoping to buy one that has already been allocated to a dealership somewhere.

    LOL - there's plenty of time to rest once we're dead

    For me, I'd have to totally agree if only because everything about it is real - not just some fantasy, race rig or concept.

    It's always tough when there's a lot of cameras out and tons of Jeeps. I'm glad to hear we were able to get enough footage to make a video and still have it be interesting enough to watch.

    I think a lot of those haters are becoming converts

    That is well within the price range of just about anyone who would have bought a Rubicon, a mild lift, and new tires/wheels. Itís 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.
    This ^^^^

    LOL - funny you should say as much as I'm pretty sure he's on his way to EVO now.

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.
