    Cool Nevada's High Mountain Desert

    Ended my longest no jeep dry spell, after selling m,y TJ 2 years ago,

    Just bought a 75 -Renegade CJ5 with 25k miles on it previous owner got it as a barn find and never did anything to it (much longer story but not worth getting into. ) nonetheless it sat pretty much for 40 years, the body is in amazingly good shape, minus the typical dings and small dents, like someone let the hood hit the window frame.

    The the engine ran until the previous owner started the project of installing new headers(shrug). again long story.

    Once I goit it home it looks as though the *koff* Koff* shop the previous owner had taken it to started his won jeep-asaurus build, took the body off and pretty much the any wires or and other lines are incomplete or cut.

    oh and he took off and sold the roll bar which looks cool, but a great way to die...

    So I am building it from the ground up.
    Plan is to make it just slightly above stock look, minor lift for larger tires etc. but

    My plan looks to include a rebuild on the V8, and the gearbox as well.

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.
