    VIDEO : GETTIN READY for the NITTO JKX - Part 2

    It's hard to believe that the final Nitto JK-Experience presented by KMC Wheels is finally here and Cindy and I feel fortunate to have been invited to be a part of it. However, Moby is over 12 years old now and starting to show his age and so, we made sure to spend some time getting him ready for the trip. In addition to the coilover service, custom stretch and general maintenance we had done at Off Road Evolution, we decided to also make a trip to Motech and to have a unique upgrade made to Moby's cooling system. And, being that this is a Nitto Tire event, we decided it would be good to run a set of shoes that were a bit more appropriate for the occasion. In this short video, you'll get to see some of what it took to whip Moby into shape and ready to hit the JKX. We hope you enjoy.

    Looks good. Changing those tires must have been a hell of a lot of work.

    I wonder how much of the improved cooling is due to the JL fan vs the heat sink transmission cooler.

    Transmission temps are definitely benefiting from the new heat sink. The new lower coolant temps are all thanks to the JL fan.

    Just based on our drive home, we saw BIG improvements. Should get the job done on the JKX too

    It’s great having resources like motech helping you work through issues like the access heat and coming up with ingenious solutions to them. It’s pretty damn cool too to have a test lab right outside your front door!!! Insane flex!

    Good luck out there at JKX!

    Another great video...

    I think poor Rusty has JT envy; while the new truck gets to go out to cool places, Rusty gets to bear the burden of transporting tires...at least Rusty has a name though...

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.
