    The Adventures and Build of Remi the JL Rubicon!

    Hello all!

    My name is Nathan. I’ve been a member for many years and I’ve owed six Jeeps and that has just became seven.

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

    Here is after signing all the paperwork, and making Remi officially mine

    To get us started, here are some photos of my past Jeeps. Two of the builds are documented heavily on here.

    And finally, the inspiration behind the name. Remi was a Boston terrier that belonged to a family member of mine. She was a great dog, but unfortunately she past away several years ago. The other day I was looking at the JLUR and it just came to me. Thus Remi the Rubicon was born!

    Hey man! Feels great to be back in it. I'm very impressed with the JL platform and finaly being able to purchase my very own Rubicon. I am currently on a 200+ mile journey in Remi and am very impressed with the long trip it in. Great fun!

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.
