    Hello from Denver, CO.

    Hello. Brand new to the forum. I'm not exactly a "Jeep guy". What brings me here is a rig that I'm building. It's a 1984 DEFENDER 110. I've watched basically all of Wayalife's YouTube vids over the years and my plans are to build an Overland/Trail rig, similar to the rigs you guys build. Just a different starting point. Modifications that I have in mind for our DEFENDER are very out of the box for the Land Rover crowd. Beyond bolt-ons, the DEFENDER community isn't much help. They are extremely capable and well traveled rigs, in their own right and I see their point. But I want to go to that next level.

    I'm not new to Land Rovers, Off-Road, or Fabrication. We currently have five Rovers that we try to get out on the trails as often as possible. Everything from SERIES III to the Mk III RANGE ROVER. Now it's time to build a pretty capable family rig. I had the DEFENDER imported from the UK last November. I'm currently sourcing a V6 Ford Eco Boost powerplant for it. From there on out it's wide open and that's why I'm here. I'm not sure the original drivetrain will handle what will be thrown at it, so it's probably all going to go. I'll get a thread started to document the teardown and build. I know it's not what you guys see everyday, but when it comes to suspension setups and building a drivetrain that can handle power and abuse, I know I'm in the right place.

    I'm wrapping up our '72 SERIES III this summer. Once it's out of the garage, it'll be full time on the DEFENDER. So, since the 110 lives outside at the moment, I can get the interior gutted and get the cage mocked up. It'll be a hybrid interior/exterior similar to this:

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.
