    Helloooooo from Calgary!!!!

    Hey Jeepsters, thanx for adding me. I just bought a 99 Wrangler TJ and I want to build a roof rack approximately 7’ long by 5’ wide so my girlfriend and I can sleep up there(we will be spending every summer weekend camping in thick bear country). Anyone done any DIY roof rack projects you could share pics of? I’m curious...

    Happy Jeeping!!!

    Welcome from Detroit. Haven’t seen one for a TJ, but I’m sure someone built one.

    Welcome from Ft Wayne In, I would use thick steel for camping in bear country!

    Welcome from Winnipeg MB. Not a fan of camping with bears!! Good luck with the DIY bear proof roof rack. Sounds heavy

    Welcome from New Jersey!
    In bear country may I suggest installing expanded metal fence section around said sleeping quarters on the roof? We want to hear more from you in the future.
    I’d suggest a good plumbing supply house and use black pipe and readily available 45 degree and 90 degree elbows.

    Welcome to WAL from Kansas City. So long as you don't present yourself as food or a threat bears, as well as, other critters should leave you alone.

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.
