One was pretty basic and had a sticker of $58k and change. It didnít have the keyless touch and go door handles, no push button start, and didnít have the technology package. Was missing a lot of what I wanted in a Raptor. The other two were pretty well equipped trucks that had a sticker price of $78k and $76k. Both had nice options, dual panoramic sunroof, the expensive Raptor decals, and one had the fancy tailgate step. I paid under MSRP for my Gladiator, but youíd be hard pressed to find a similar deal on a new Raptor. For its have cost me $20k more for a Raptor with comparable options to my Gladiator.

    Good info thank you. I haven't even bothered to look a JT but I am going to take a look. So a JT is capable off towing a JKU on a flatbed comfortably?

    An unmodified stock JKU on a light weight trailer, sure. But who wants to tow that. As soon as you build up a Jeep and push 6k, itís too heavy.

    I pondered it before I bought my Ram. There was just way too much potential to start another build on that platform. I donít think I would have left it stock for long and that would have cut into the Jeep budget

    I'm with you there. My buddies have a lot of money in their Raptors as well. I have a lot I want to do to my jeep still and can see the Raptor sucking some of that up.

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.
