    Good point...like to see how the cab fares over a year of use...before I build a cab similar to it.

    Have to admit I didn’t understand the goal of the build in the beginning. A 35” tired JT 2dr overlander camping rig with a Hellcat? Stage 2 is a flatbed variant. OK, starting to dig it now. Being way slow on the uptake, it took this vid to bring the point of the build together. Doh! This build is the baddest of the bad do everything JT. I’ll bet it’s pretty fair on the highway to. I’d have to sell the house to get the second one built. Hmmm.
    Embrace the Recoil!

    Really impressed with it now. And kind of understand why it took so long to get the prorocks under it.

    Loving those axles for sure. Unless they take kidneys or testicles in trade however I canít imagine those axles ever being in reach financially.

    Just when I think maybe it could be okay more China tires and a China winch?

    TJM?

    Iím just confused by the whole thing especially from a company who prides themselves on being built in the USA and wants people to support made in USA. I donít know, maybe Iím the only one who sees that stuff but itís very odd to me.

    On the plus side, I liked the quality of the video and Savvy has some cool projects. Would like to have seen more of the other trucks they have in there.

    You gotta see this thing in person, itís pretty amazing. They are definitely going in a unique direction with this build bit based on what I saw, itís based on a specific use case in my opinion - ďhardcoreĒ overlanding. The PCOR kit is easily changeable for different trips. Loving the flatbed tho. Great Video as always.

    LOL, leave it to Detective Ovie to spot the winch.

    All smartassery aside, I really appreciate the work and craftsmanship, but the bed and other details just aren't for me. And the video is great as usual.

    Thank you. It took a lot of work and a better part of a week to film and we're glad that you enjoyed our video. The axles are truly what this rig has been needing.

    It's definitely a beast now. Glad that we were able to share the build with you

    You bet and yes, the axles are sweet

    When's Phase 4?
    With any luck, Phase 4 will be testing this thing out on the trail.

    Clearly, it's not a build for everyone. It definitely looks a lot better now that it's sitting on 40's.

    Hopefully we'll get to see this rig out on the trail and put to the test.

    It's definitely what it should have been from the beginning now

    I'm not gonna lie, this really bothered me a lot too. I know you and I have had this discussion before and as you've said so eloquently, if you want to make the case for "Made in the USA" and want people to support Made in the USA, YOU need to support it yourself.

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.
