    I also see a nice bed rack for the kayaks in the future. Maybe even a RTT.....
    Thanks. Yeah I was looking at options for racks that would come off quick for transporting my kayak. Damn thing is too big.

    I am running 35s. I ran 35s for 7 months on stock suspension. I do have the Max Tow version, so I'm not sure if anything differs in regards to the springs vs the overland model. I took it off road a few times on very very light stuff and did not disconnect and still had no rubbing at all. In September of 2020, I installed the Rancho leveling kit and gained exactly 2.25 inches in the front (stock front bumper, no winch). I think it's a perfect look.

    That's definitely a great looking rig...

    I swore I would never buy another black vehicle, they look fantastic but keeping them looking good is too much work for me

    2. Is it worth the ~$1000 budget hit to move up.


    I know the right answer is 37s but..

    Iíd be worried youíd regret the 35s the first time you hit the trail and have wasted time and money. If you intend on wheeling it here on the eastern half of the US, youíre going to need 37s to clear.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
