    Front runner roof rack. Company is from South Africa and has been around for a while. It does require drilling some holes into your hard top, but it is what it is. Even after drilling the holes, mine is water tight. Other than drilling the holes in your hard top, everything else bolts into factory locations. You can run the rack with or without the hard top. You can also remove the freedom panels easily. I sleep my wife, 5 year old son, myself and 2 smaller dogs up top without any issues. If you use the old google machine you can watch some videos of the rack in action.

    One thing about having the Roof top tent is, other than the weight of it, is once you have set up camp, it is a pain in the ass to have to pack your jeep up to go wheel. (If your using it to base camp). All in all, once you have the hang of set-up and tear down, it doesnít take too long and too is what it is. My RTT is an older camping labs. If you do not already have one, I recommend doing your research on those as there are a ton of companies out now days and you do get what you pay for and the cost/weights vary from tent to tent.

    Thank you Sir! Itís an Adventure Trailers Teardrop. Itís real nice! Bought it when my son was smaller so now sleeping quarters are getting a bit cramped. Kinda on the fence about either selling it and getting a tent trailer for my gear and a RTT or just getting a smaller RTT for the top of the Teardrop. I do like it tho and is built to last. I know youíve been contemplating one and I would definitely recommend it! Too bad they arenít making them any more . They pop up on the market from time to time.

    I went with the Teraflex Nebo with the slat kit. I found it pretty expensive (around $1500 total)and it wasnít fun to install(over 8 hours and very meticulous). But overall, I love it. It looks great and is way overrated for my needs. 875 static, 250 road and 150 off-road. Love the TNut set up. Very versatile and if I remove the roof, the rack goes with it. I see no purpose removing a roof only to have slats over your head.
    Pictured here with the Bestop Sunrider. This wasnít sanctioned by Teraflex or Bestop. But so far, no issues with the Sunrider open. It rides about 3/4 of an inch higher. If anything does go wrong, itís on me, not their products. IMG_0385.jpg58948518589__390E7B42-BE2C-48FB-ABB2-D23EB5401F4E.jpg

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.
