    VIDEO : MAKING of a LEGEND Part 1 - Let Our Gladiator Transformation Begin

    When Cindy and I built up our Jeep JL Wrangler, we purposefully took our time and installed as many aftermarket products as we could. This would include everything from a basic budget boost to EVO long arms and coilovers and we did all this to gain as much experience as possible. With that said, when it came to start building up our brand new Jeep JT Gladiator, we decided to do things a bit differently. Being that the two are so similar in design especially up front, we decided to pick up where we left off on the JL and go BIG right from the get go. Of course, I'm talking about Dana UD60 1-ton axles, Nitto 40" Trail Grappler tires, a PSC ram assist steering system and a superior EVO coilover suspension system. In this short video, you'll get to see the beginning of our Gladiator's transformation from being the mythical Jeep truck that it once was, into the Legend that it has since become. We hope you enjoy.

    Great video, I like how it jumped right in, just like the build. The steering box was massive. Looking fwd to the next one!

    So damn cool! That PSC system was crazy how everything had to be reworked to run the ram. I hope that selector shaft comment doesn’t come back to haunt you though

    You and Cindy are amazing! Can’t believe how quick you guys can churn these videos out, can’t wait to see the next one!!

    They really make some beautiful welds. I can’t believe how fast they got it torn down and all the brackets welded on. Looks great

    And then burn the midnight oil after that! It’s going to make the JL/JTX seem like a vacation!

    Very excited for you guys! Have a blast!

    LOL - not gonna lie, it's been nuts for us and we still have things that need to get installed on our JT before heading out.

    It's been a while since we've been back east. Looking forward to it.

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.
