    I saw it too but chalked it up to shift work/never knowing the date/typo.

    I joined up over there to do some research and get everything ready before buying and Iím still active over there as well! Although, I knew I wanted to document my build on the WAYALIFE site. I love it here, and Iíve been missing the family all too much. I also love it on JLWRANGLER, but this place just feels like home. I was just waiting to name my JL before starting my build thread!

    Iím surprised that you went with the factory LED upgrade. I know how you loved your Trucklites in the past.
    Thanks man! I sure appreciate all the kind words. Itís all good brother, it was a hard time but the outcome was for the best. As am I. It feels like home driving it every day. All my friends were not at all surprised, they knew Iíd be back in a wrangler. They called it before I did! 🤣

    I did LOVE my Truck-Liteís, and went back and forth with purchasing the LED package. But I went with it for two reasons. One, the LED fender DRLs/Halos. And two, the LED tail lights with the LED reverse lights. After seeing some of those options in person vs. the non led counterparts, I couldnít resist. They just make the JL look so much better.

    While I wish I could blame this on shift work and my busy work schedule, Overlander is correct. Itís the robot Aliens. 🤣🤣

    Actually it was a typo. Remiís pick up date was May 21st.

    Awesome! Welcome back. Always good to have Texas Jeepers on here! My wife is from the Paris area.

    Welcome to my build thread and picture diary. I am an avid automobile photographer and love to use my Jeeps as my models.. so I am looking for somewhere to store and show all the pictures that no one cares about except other Jeep people! I hope you guys enjoy them.

    For those of you guys that know me and are old friends, I am glad to be back. Without going into too much detail, at the beginning of the year I went through a divorce. But finding the positive in that, I was able to build and buy my dream Jeep! I am very excited starting over and having plenty of time for taking adventures as well as building Remi the way I want on the timeline I want to.

    For those who don’t know me and are new friends, I am a 27 year old Firefighter/Paramedic in the East Texas/Tyler area. I take a lot of pictures. A LOT. If that’s not your thing, I completely understand, but if it is, get ready for the wild ride that is my build thread.

    Okay, on to the good stuff! Meet REMI!

    Remi is a 2019 JLU Rubicon in Bright White with a black cloth interior. The only two options I HAD to have were the LED package and Heated seats/steering wheel/remote start. I also went with the hard top headliner, tow package, and Mopar Floor Mats.

    I picked up Remi on June 21st of this year, almost a month now. Here is the first time I laid eyes on her.

    Welcome to the madness that is my build thread! Thanks for reading!

    Thatís awesome and thank you for the welcome! I was actually born and raised in Paris and spent the first 20 years of my life there before relocating to the Tyler area. Itís a great area!

    After my long trip and since today is one month, I decided to give Remi a much needed bath and full tank of gas.

    Unfortunately, we ended up at the dealer shortly after that. While cleaning her up, I noticed the grill near where the drivers side headlight is is starting to yellow.

    Iíve read that this is very common in the bright white JLs. The dealer took some pictures, is getting an estimate for repainting of the grill, and should get back to me by Monday or Tuesday of next week.

    A few more photos of the yellowing. You can look in the third photo and see the obvious difference between the hood and grille.

    Now some would say this is very trivial, but I donít understand and donít believe itís right to pay $49,000 for a brand new Jeep to have it look like this a month later.

    Maybe Remi's a smoker?

    Maybe Remi is telling you he needs a black grill, like the original Remi.

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.
