    I'm glad you and Cindy survived another SEMA...always thankful for the vast aftermarket think pool to address quirks and shortcomings at the oem manufacturing level (with price point and gov't restrictions etc) with innovative solutions and outside the box thinking to keep our market section engaged as consumers...I suspect a neat bourbon libation may be in order (several, in fact)...

    Great coverage of SEMA! I was just looking at Tekton website today because of you. Now I see this video with them in it. I think I am going to have to try them out the next time I need a tool or replace a tool. I have mostly all Craftsman right now and there customer service is going down hill and its harder to find places to deal with them now.

    Darn rights-I torched my Craftsman digital torque wrench and when I went to take it back, sadly realized it only had a 90 day warranty!

    Tekton continues to impress me. And their warranty is super easy to use.

    Does ranch have any plans for make the JL mirrors work with those tube doors? I’m not a tube door guy but not a fan of the JK mirrors.

    Maybe I missed it but is tuffy planning to make a tonneau that works without their boxes?

    Good stuff from Sunergy. I like the half doors.

    thanks for another year of great coverage!

    I like what Synergy has in the works, think i'll wait out the JL build and let some new products get to market.

    Another great year of coverage! Thanks for taking us along.

    I’m glad you had the guys from Tekton on. It’s great to see how well they stand behind their products. Same thing with synergy, it looks like they enjoyed test phase of their development!!

    Thanks again!

    Oh yeah, gotta give the 2-doors some love. At least, when we can find one.

    Too funny but yes, you need to get out of that god forsaken state.

    LOL - a bit of sleep was in order first but yes

    Started buying Tekton a few years back and mainly for trail tools that were a step up from Harbor Freight. I have since found myself turning more and more to them and now use them in my garage as well. If anything, I've been finding them to be on par with my old Craftsman and really, their warranty is BETTER than new Craftsman. If you do feel the need to buy new tools, I'd be grateful if you'd consider doing it through this website. Doesn't cost anything more and we do get a small kickback. Thanks!

    Honestly, that's what got me looking at Tekton. Same thing happened to me with my Craftsman torque wrench.

    LOL - it did to me as well. I was hoping to talk to a different guy but apparently, we got to their booth a bit early.

    I'm with you regarding Tekton. Their warranty alone will keep me buying their tools from here on out. Affordable and so far, they've been working!

    Not 100% sure about Tuffy. I'm sure if it were up to Eric, the guy who used to own it before being bought out by Bestop, it would have been done already. I talked to him for a bit and unfortunately, he has a lesser roll there now.

    The JT was the big news of course. I'm impressed how quickly truly innovative products have reached the marketplace or are about to be retailed. Most interesting to me are the bolt on suspension systems requiring cutting and grinding only. They're probably not "hard core", but they're close enough for me. Excellent coverage this year.

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.
