    The big things coming will be a Bestop Trektop in twill, front bumper/winch, Rancho lift, wheels and 37s.

    Those are the big things. Thereís about 1000 little things in between as you probably understand 🤣

    Iím hoping to get things started by the end of the month with things really taking off next year.

    Cruising through the nearby neighborhoods putting some miles on. Itís the first decent day weíve had in a month and possibly the last one, so i needed to get Remi out and stretch her legs for probably the last time this year.

    Then it was time for a quick shift into 4 wheel drive, and played around on some dirt for a bit

    Back at home, before putting Remi up, it was time to take a picture with her and her older sister, Ruby.

    Iíve been doing a terrible job updating this thread, but Iím trying to get better about it. Since selling the house in Sept, Iíve been on the mad push to get every cent of divorce debt paid off by the end of the year. This goal should be accomplished by December 27th, and then begins the build.

    Next time I update this thread, the first mod will be on the way and the official build will be started
    You had to shift into 4wd for that vacant lot shot?

    Yes sir, crawling out of the garage can be tough. I hit an anthill and had to disconnect the sway bar just to make sure I got over it with no issues! 🤣

    Since yesterday was the last nice day, the girlfriend and I decided to take Remi for one more cruise since itís going to be a few weeks before getting a new top.

    We went about 60 miles for about 1.5 hours, only rules were all on county, dirt, and back roads. No major or main highways.

    We saw a lot of cool stuff but our main stop for the day was Loveís Lookout in Jacksonville, TX.
    At an elevation of 713 feet, you get about a 30-35 mile view out over ETX.

    I snapped this picture of Remi because in the background you can see one of the last still standing fire towers in Texas. These towers stand 100ft tall and were where the forest service would spot fires before starting to use airplanes. I could not find an exact year on when this tower was constructed, but I do know itís one of the last ones standing in the state.

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.
