Thread: Howdy! New to Jeep but not the off-road community.

  1. #1

    Cool Howdy! New to Jeep but not the off-road community.

    Howdy! I'm Mike, from all over really, but orginally Virginia.



    Had a Power Wagon, still have a Power Wagon...

    But sooo many Jeep friends and that itch just kept getting wrose. Had to scratch it. Picked up a late model 2018 and already in love with it.

    Found some local Jeep friends and have been on a few runs.

    Still planning out my build. I have been running custom tuned King Shocks on our full-size for some time,; so I know I want to do the Jeep right. Just a tad bit over whelmed by the Jeep aftermarkets abundance of choices. There are like two companies that do 2500's right. But don't worry, I won't be buying any Sh//tybuilt stuff

    Anyhow, really love the youtube videos I've been watching from Eddie and his wife; they factored into us buying along with our friends Nena Barlow and Jon Von Wagoneer. Glad to be here. And maybe I'll see ya on the trails.

    Welcome to Wayalife from PA. HA, you thought your 2500 was expensive, wait til you start down the Jeep rabbit hole! Worth every penny though. Best advice I could give is buy the best parts you can afford and don't be afraid to ask questions. Another great resource is Bubba at Exodus Jeeps - he's awesome and will give you solid honest advice instead of just selling you shit you don't need.

    It's pretty bad here, my wife is into just as much as me and keeps asking if I picked out lift to go to 37's yet. Our kids are going to have to figure out college on their own, becuase mommy & daddy are spending all the money on toys and experinces.

    The powerwagon is a very underestimated vehicle. Too large to fit down trails in the south, but an incredibly capable rig none the less. Welcome from Georgia!

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.
