    If I remember correctly, in one episode of the Moab video “A Mind Screw”, Eddie and crew crossed a tilty slick rock everyone thought was a bit scary. An Apple phone showed the tilt to be only about 17deg and Eddie stated 35deg was a good number to begin to get nervous about. Don’t know if he meant stock or seriously built out rigs. I’m not gonna do any research on this any time soon.

    If you start to go over just stick out your hand and brace yourself on the nearest rock.

    That could've ended badly.

    That's a bad reflex to have. Need to break that one for sure.

    I'm pretty sure that an arm is not a substitute for a kickstand.

    Twice yesterday we hit 40deg sideways when crawling. Yes...very uncomfortable. Feels scary before 30deg. I have noticed when going vertical that high of a degree the Jeep doesn't like it. Engine light went on when I was attempting a 40 degree vertical climb on mud. I couldn't make it up in the mud. Engine light off this morning so I attribute it to the vertical attempt.

    Side question...has anyone experienced the dash display flashing rapidly when climbing steep hills in dirt and rocks with Jeep bouncing all over the place?

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.
