    ^^ This. With the fake rings you seat the bead like a regular tire. With the true beadlock ring you seat the bead like a beadlock.

    Conservation of water. I guess that’s true. Carry on.

    Ahhhh. Okay. I thought they were real beadlocks. That makes more sense.

    Lol. Actually, yes. My senior was at a high school party that got busted. He somehow was able to leave with a 30 pack of Keystone Light. Now they are mine to use how I want.

    He got busted AND managed to come home with free beer?
    That’s a good kid right there. Should train him into some better taste for next time.

    My wife and I drove 30 minutes each way to get him and a few of his friends from Tahoe. I drove one of his friend’s vehicles home. They are lucky that I knew the sheriff’s deputy or they may have ended up with minor in possession tickets. But yes, he knows how to handle himself both with booze and with cops. The deputy commented on how respectful and cooperative he was.

    As for the keystone, what can I say. He is a broke high school kid...quantity over quality. 🥃

    Ahh the good old days of the “dirty thirty”. Drank my more than my share of that crap beer before my tastes and budget changed.

    I personally am not a fan on power coat for something that is going to get scratched up a lot. I feel that spray paint works just fine over power coat but you can see the difference in thickness on big gouges more. I use Krylon Fusion matte black on everything and when I get a good scratch, I just sand the area smooth and re shoot with paint and it blends in just fine. For those wheel rings I would spray paint all day long over power coat.

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.
