    From MYTH to LEGEND : The EVOlution of our Jeep Gladiator

    While it's only been a little over a week since we got home from the JKX and we're still not even done making all the videos for it, time is ticking and we've got to get our brand new 2020 Jeep JT Gladiator built up and ready for the upcoming JL/JT Experience. Yup, you heard right, Cindy and I will be attending this awesome event in October and as of today, we've only got about 3 weeks to get our Gladiator built up and sitting on 40's. Needless to say, this thread has been started to highlight the transformation of our mythical Jeep truck into a legend.

    This is where it all begins. For reference, here are a couple of photos of what our Gladiator looks like now.

    Got our wheels in and as you can see, they are badass KMC Machetes.


    Still debating on whether or not we'll get them powder coated a different color.






    Also picked up a little something from WARN


    Of course, being that the JL/JT Experience is a Nitto event, we'll be ordering up some 40" Trail Grapplers.

    More to come soon.

    Can't wait to see this beast. Any idea what kind of suspension you'll be doing?

    Hoping we can get coilovers installed but I think a lot of that will depend more on time than anything.

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.
