    Yeah, I have to say that I'm really happy with them. Very factory looking when installed. Loved that I could keep so much of the inner fender liner too.

    Defiantly look great, & great tutorial as always

    I'm going to need to watch it again to see if I will be able to mount my rock lights to the bottom of the brackets, I have them screwed to the underside of the factory plastic DRL's now.

    Sooooo awesome!!! I’ve been waiting over a year! I ended up settling for the American adventure lab chop DRL which are awesome but what wasn’t awesome was the bulb out error and then the $60 fix for it later...

    I’ll buy the rugged ridge for my JT and I love the fact that you keep so much of the oem front inner fender.

    Thank you Eddie! Another awesome video, hope these get pumped out soon!

    I'm gonna bet that you could probably work off the Rugged Ridge DRL brackets if needed. Like you, I want to install rock lights and already have a few ideas

    Having seen both in person and both get installed, I have to say that I'm a lot happier with the Rugged Ridge setup. I love how you can keep so much of the inner fender liners and how factory the DRL's look once installed. Glad we could share this with you

    LOL - gotta figure out what to do about axles first but 40's are definitely on the to do list.

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.
