    Great video, thanks for sharing! Actually a bit more work on the install than I expected. When the time comes I may just make the trip to ORE cause they are so damn dialed with everything. They look awesome and I'm sure perform even better. Looking fwd to many great vids and seeing them in person!

    I was a little worried at first that maybe I over did it with this suspension but so far I am way impressed. Only had it out wheelin once, can't wait to see what it is capable of on some serious trails. Going to moab in a few weeks!
    Cool story... someone may actually give a fuck if you introduced yourself instead.

    After running Metal cloak for a year I stepped up to an EVO long Arm and King Coil-overs... I have to agree the ride is amazing on road and the performance off road is exceptional. The geometry is as such that I can climb things that other rigs have trouble with or just can't make.

    Nice write up sir.

    I donít think jet is flexing hard enough. Take it back to evo since you donít know how to fix the limit flex issue

    Looks great guys! Looks like it rides amazing!

    I see the control arm relocation brackets are bolted-on then weld it. Could you run it with just the bolts?

    For example, if i installed in my garage would the bolts on the control arm mounts be strong enough to drive it down to a local welding shop?

    What a great video. So want coil-overs and long arms. All these videos are truly dangerous to my bank account! Thanks for sharing with us. Really appreciate everything you two do for us.

    Thank you. Hard to believe how much flex you can get out of a suspension system that rides so well on pavement. Back in the day, you could only get one or the other.

    Iím jealous that suspension looks incredible.
    Thank you, the suspension is awesome for sure!

    Too funny and I'm glad to hear you've been enjoying watching the evolution

    What's the maintenance cycle on coil overs and is it DIY?

    One of the reasons I got rid of my Kings on my JK was because there were no shops nearby to have them serviced at that gave me confidence in their abilities to do it properly, the cost of shipping them back to King was stupid high and i'd have to buy new shocks while I waiting for them to get shipped back. I ended up selling them and replacing them with Rancho...

    When the Kings were new, the DD ride was fantastic and made dirt roads so much more fun to drive ...fast and faster! but they sucked ass once they needed maintenance.

    After running short arm kits, I'm leaning more to long arms for the ride but still up in the air on what to do about shocks

    Stop making videos that confuse my decision making process more!!!
    It really depends on how hard you play and how often. Bombing across the desert will speed things up way more than rock crawling could ever hope to. Servicing them can be done in your garage but you would need to be able to raise your Jeep high enough to let your axle come to a full droop AND you would need the equipment to do it yourself. While not required, I would highly recommend you get the super expensive clamps that King makes as well. Cost of everything would be about $1500 and then there's the oil, seals and nitrogen you'll need to get as well. In truth, it's almost easier to just have someone else do it.

Nice job!
    Thanks Rachel, no shame in my eyes and I hope we get to see you out on the trail soon. Glad the cycling info was helpful to you too

    So excited for that for sure

    Tell me about it. Hoping this is something we can do on ours sooner than later.

    Cool - I'm sure you'll love it out in Moab.

    LOL - the coilover kit for the JL is a lot nicer than the one for the JK.

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.
