    The 2019 JT/JL Experience is a run where owners and manufacturers figure out what works and what doesn’t. Thanks for putting your new rides on the line so we can learn.

    This^^^ well said. People in the off-road community often forget that these events, while a lot of fun are also a big T&E for manufacturers to grow and improve.

    I too run a VR10s and while it’s worked great in terms of always working, its slow and I’ve had to get creative with some pulls because it is underpowered. It’s also a good place to expose shitty craftsmanship and fabrication. Case in point the DCD welds failing because well... they’re weren’t welds lol.

Frickin ridiculous!!

    Other than that, I’m happy to say all is well and everyone is having a great time. The obstacles are tough here for sure and if only because everything is so slick and requires a lot of skinny pedal and then there are tight trees everywhere just to kick things up a notch.

    That is mind boggling, that a supposedly reputable shop would risk their name and reputation by pulling something so shady.

    I need a toilet flush emoji, as that is the sound of their reputation.

Mel has even resorted to letting line out almost to the drum to give it the most pulling power and is still having to resort to using a snatch block to get it to do anything. All the other ZEON winches including 9.5s have been working great.

    The low dollar Warns are better than any of the other made in China winches, but still not even close to the real deal, like a ZEON, M, or XD.

    Reading up on them, they will pull the rated 10K, but very slowly, only on the first layer. Each layer looses far more power and speed that the ZEON series.

    Worse yet, the cool looking new VRs, with the housing that looks like a ZEON, are even weaker and slower than the original VR series.

    I would be on DCD like stink on shit. That is unbelievably dangerous, and I hope news of this “install” travels fast and puts them out of business. I also hope Mel stops selling to them.

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.
