    The Birth of Cookie Monster (aka Cymbol Monkey)

    I have prolonged doing this for a long time because I am terrible about keeping up with things like this but after getting enough flack from some fellow friends here it is time I at least formally introduce my rig and start documenting where I am as of right now. It was bought new in July 2017 and admittedly it was ugly as hell with all the blue even though I am a bright colored Jeep guy.

    It wasn't too long (about a day) before things started being torn off and the slow, never ending build began.

    Initial lift was a 2.5 RK lift,

    rolling on a pair of method rims with 35's. IMG_0232.jpg

    That last all of about 4 months before the methods went away I moved to a pair of slabs on 37's. IMG_0617.jpg which also required a poor mans bumper chop. There are a whole series of other things that happened from there. Pandemic tail lights, Evo quarter pounder, rear facia, sliders, drive shafts, etc, etc, etc.

    In the end this is where I currently sat A5C54322-4D3D-4EF2-A16A-B4431B9C55B5.jpg….till now.

    So, as many of you all know, there is this little trip being planned for us East Coast guys to come play out West. It all started on that wonderful trip I randomly decided I wanted to make up to Michigan where my annoying self managed to convince WJStudio that we needed to make that happen. While in Michigan I also quickly learned that although I was mildly built, I really was just a ticking time bomb for the way I wheel. So the plans were laid, both for the trip West and the next and hopefully final stage of the build.

    - Complete rotor-to-rotor

    Indeed. Was just a little too much with matching fenders and too but the deal was too good to pass

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.
