    Looking forward to the fender light options. That was a detailed video. Great job asking the right questions.

    Pretty sure that mesh (low air intake) is blocked off if you are running the upper snorkel part (the high air intake). Or, you can run just the low air intake and a plate goes across the top eliminating the upper snorkel tube running up the A pillar.

    Really cool. The RR drls look great. Wonder what the price point will be compared to full replacement fenders?? Wish they would have demo’d the leds.

    The front bumper on the JT in a stubby for the JL would be interesting. Not sure I want to wait that long
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    Those rugged ridge flares are still amazing!

    That cargo system you showed at the end of the video is really cool as well! Very innovative

    The guys at RR have done a great job on those fenders. They look seamless done.

    Can’t wait to see what else you guys find!
    Legit concern regarding the Cargo Glide. Once locked in, they seemed to be solid but there'd be no way for me to say with certainty how they'd do or should I say, sound on a washboard road.

    The Rugged Ridge fenders were really nice and looked surprisingly OE. I would totally consider a set for our JL even though we have a Rubicon if only because of the room you'd gain for bigger tires and still have a cool DRL.

    That glide system is pretty cool. Not sure I think it’s best for that small bed in a JT but the work for full size rigs for sure.
    The fenders were nice for sure and on our Gladiator, I'd love to run the same setup as what they had on theirs.

    Well, Patrick does anyway. He's their senior designer/engineer and he loves what he does. He's a real Jeep enthusiast and has been a lot happier ever since they gave him more free reign to make things he wants to make. I think if it were completely up to him, he'd be making even cooler stuff.

    Is that aluminum deck 1000xl can be mounted on top of Decked
    When the rep mentioned fishing rods I thought of Brute
    I'm not sure the Cargo Glide would work well on top of the Decked system. At least, I doubt you'd be able to carry 1000 lbs. of gear on it when fully extended.

    I like the bed slide for sure, but I do question how much it will rattle as well
    Glad to hear so many of you are liking what you're seeing in this video

    In my opinion, Rugged Ridge is killing it with some of that stuff. It sounds like they are really spending time on their designs. And a huge thumbs up to them for making the latch the same height between front and rear tube doors. The mismatch shit that everyone else makes is a deal breaker for me.
    I've talked to Patrick at length about this in the past and from what I was told, he used to have his hands tied quite a bit and it was a struggle to come out with anything really nice. I think the Truck Hero thing has really given him a lot more latitude and now we're really starting to see nicer stuff come out from them.

    Awesome. Glad to hear you have the license plate mount and like it and that you've seen the Cargo Glide in use and think it's nice too.

    It is nice to see that kind of attention to detail especially on products that are more consumer friendly in price.

    What Sharkey said ^^^^
    When we install the one they sent us, we'll just be using the lower vent.

    Thanks and yes, really looking forward to the fender DRL. Compared to the one that most people are running today, I can tell you that it's a much cleaner and nicer design.

    Good question on the DRL price point. I'll see if I can't push to get some general numbers.

“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.
