    New Guy From Upstate NY

    Hello, from upstate NY !
    As of this afternoon I am officially back in a Jeep after a brief absence. I ended up with a 2016 Backcountry JKU which will be my 3rd JKU. Also had a Oscar Mike edtion two door JK a while back.
    The first order of business was to get rid of those hideous door handle inlays and caps. They went into the dumpster before I ever rolled off the lot. Those headlights and rock rails aren't making it with me either they will be addressed in the future.
    I'm checking in at 6'8" tall so the first mod will be a front seat extension to accommodate my 38" inseam. Of course it will get a lift, probably 35's, and all the offroad goodies. This Jeep has the Alpine speakers and the 130 radio so I'm thinking the head unit will get replaced also. Anyway, thats all stuff for down the road at some point.

    I have no idea what brand those headlights are, but I'm fairly certain they aren't going to impress me after dark. The halos don't even work not sure if they are even wired up. Morimoto projectors have my interest peaked I may give them a try after watching a review on them.

    That's all I have for now !

    Looks like they might be JW Speaker headlights. If they are, you should be impressed.

    Getting back to the headlights I haven't found anything that says DOT SAE on them. A Google image search has a visual match with some ebay specials. Its dark here now so its time to go play.

    Thanks ! What part of Indiana are you in ? The trucking company I drive long haul for has its business office in Terre Haute. The trucks are based off the farm in Paris, IL..
    The Jeep will be living in Paris as its not my DD its my 2nd vehicle. I've heard of good wheeling out that way.

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.
