    VIDEO : SEMA 2019 - DAY 3 / Rugged Ridge / Cargo Glide

    Continuing our coverage of all things Jeep JT Gladiator trucks and JL Wranglers at the 2019 SEMA Show, Cindy and I made our way back into the Off Road hall and to check out the plethora of products that Rugged Ridge is bringing to market. This would include their all new replacement fenders for the JL Wrangler that not only sit a bit taller than what you'd find on a Rubicon but also come with built in high clearance DRL's. Of course, the original DRL lights that they came out with last year for factory trimmed fenders has been improved and should finally be available for sale soon. Last but not least, the elusive bolt on snorkel of theirs was on display again only this time, in its final form and as I'm told, with a part number as it's ready for sale now. Another cool product that we came across and thought you might want to see as well was made by a company called Cargo Glide. Essentially, they make a large flat deck that sits in the bed of your JT Gladiator, extends the full length of it, can carry up to a 1,000 lbs of gear and be slid to a completely out. I should note though that they also make a slide track that hangs from the cross bars of any bed rack and have a roof deck that can be pulled out and tilted down with ease for easier access to all your gear on top. We hope you enjoy.

    Those cargo racks were ingenious. My only thought on them was how much they would rattle? Seems like a lot of tracks and rollers that would drive me crazy on a dirt road or trail.

    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!

    I like all three fender options from rugged ridge. Not sure about the bed rack though.

    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.

    It's obvious that Rugged Ridge really takes pride in what they build. Cool stuff.

    I really dig RR JL flares looks really sharp. JT not so much the way it was presented. Three stages nahhhh. It would look much better without black bottom portion of the flare. It has to go at least for me looks unfinished.
    Is that aluminum deck 1000xl can be mounted on top of Decked
    When the rep mentioned fishing rods I thought of Brute

    I like what Rugged Ridge is coming out with especially the flares.

    I like the bed slide for sure, but I do question how much it will rattle as well

    Another great video. I love seeing some of the smaller stuff like slides and cases and racks and stuff.

    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.

    Nice to see the rugged ridge stuff hitting the market, I really like a bunch of it. Actually have that liscence plate mount and it's pretty nice. Interesting innovation from the cargo glide too, boss has over in his full size truck and it's pretty slick

    Nice video. You can really see the thought Rughed Ridge puts into their products with how everything meshes together.

    That Cargo Glide top that angles down is going to save a lot of backs getting the spare on and off the truck...I like that idea...and as Andy said...who doesn't need a cool rod holder rack?...

    As far as the RR snorkel concerned...why is there a mesh intake below the snorkel?...I'm sure I'm missing something (could be the excessive libations celebrating the close Raiders win)...

“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.
