    Whirlwind Trip AND a NEW JEEP

    Since 2015 I have owned a 2008 JKU that I've been rather attached to. Then in March of this year I was in an accident and spent the next 6 months without it as the best frame guy I know was booked up. Its finally fixed and about to go up for sale but in that time I realized I'd be much happier with something else.

    Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I saw HighwayTrout mention that he'd be interested in selling his 2013 10A Rubicon. After some time of deliberation I decided to make it happen. A buddy and I flew from Austin, TX to San Jose, CA, on a Friday night and picked up the Jeep. On Saturday morning we set out and drove 1,700 miles back to Texas by Sunday night. Needless to say it was a loooong drive but I could not be happier.

    HUGE thanks to HighwayTrout for making this deal happen and meeting us late Friday night and another HUGE thanks to Matt for making the trip with me.
    Added the few pics I took below

    Saturday night in Coachella. We had a camshaft positioning sensor go out and throw the Jeep into limp mode. Swapped the sensor and put a heavier weight oil in.

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.
