    FLEX TESTING Our Gladiator

    Now that we're finally back at home or at least, for a bit, I decided to do some well needed trimming of the factory fenders to help clear our 40" Nitto Trail Grapplers. As some of you may have seen on our recent JL/JT Experience videos, the tires were making contact with them at a full flex and that was causing them to pull away from the body. Anyway, here are some pics from the flex testing we did after the trim. I think things are better now.

    I know you’re not a fan of metal fenders, but have you thought about running an aftermarket fender in this build? I’m back and forth on it.

    Looking good. Any reason that you didn't remove the lower section completely?

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.
