    Hello from Massachusetts

    Hello all. Just bought my first Jeep today. 2014 jku, anvil, 62k miles. Previous owner had done some modifications. I am looking forward to making it my own.

    I have been submerged in the Jeep world online absorbing info for a few weeks. Super excited to be a part of this family.

    I don’t see myself getting too technical but I do want a Jeep that has style and functionality. It won’t be my daily driver but I will be taking it up to Maine(about 3-4hr Drive) a few times a year so it’ll need to love on road almost as much as off.

    I got a lot to learn. Fortunately I work with a mechanic and we have a garage. So I will be starting by getting under the Jeep and cleaning it up. Sand/paint any areas in need underneath. Try and figure out any other mods that previous owner may have done. I think it’s lifted 2”. I think the shocks have been upgraded. Definitely the head lights. I notice there’s a small amp looking thing between grill and radiator. I assume it’s for the headlights. When headlights are on I think it interferes with the radio reception. Kinda crazy. It’s actually even worse interference than plugging in an iPhone to charge.

    Thoughts on my future build:
    - I want a color match fastback for winter months. I have read up on this and am a little weary but I really love the look though. Currently researching camperking. One piece, colormatch painted and shipped for around $2,600. Not a lot reviews out there.
    - I like the looks of the aluminum armor/bumpers with the anvil color. Any suggestions on brands for the raw aluminum look? Genrights build is what caught my eye.
    - 17” wheels, 35” tires. Save the “stock” for winter?
    - upgrade exhaust, prob axle back.
    - .... tbd =)

    Sorry if my opening post is bit more than a Jeep wave. I am just so damn excited to own a Jeep.

    Open to any and all feedback and constructive criticism.

    I don’t know anything about Jeeps but I do know food and landscaping. Any questions there, fire away!

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.
