While pushing the center line of your wheels further out will help you to run bigger tires and without rubbing issues, you do it at the expense of increasing your scrub radius and at the cost of putting more stress on your ball joints, wheel bearings and even tie-rod.
Being that this was our first real snow day of the year, deeper powder is what we were after and there was plenty of that to be found just to the west of us and up in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Winter was finally here and it was time for us to lay down our first tracks of the season and to test out our brand new 40″ Cooper Discoverer STT Pros.
Over the past week, Cindy and I went running around the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center and took tons of pics of all the cool Jeeps, trucks, cars and products at the 2016 SEMA Show.
On a recent crawl to our local mall, our good friend Billy decided to join us in his brand new and bone stock, Jeep JK Wrangler Rubicon.
For those of you looking to add a bit more protection for the rear passengers in a 4-Door Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited, Rock Hard 4×4 has come up with a unique solution to add in additional support just behind the rear bench seat.
Now, this is far from being anything special but we thought it would be fun to give all of you a first look at these massive new 40″ Cooper STT Pros. You’ll get to see them being delivered to Camp WAYALIFE, installed on a set of ATX Chamber Pro II bead lock wheels and then taken out for a quick test run out at our local mall and all before the sun went down. We hope you enjoy.
It took a better part of the weekend but Cindy and I were eager to get our new 40″ Cooper Discoverer STT Pro Tires mounted on our ATX Chamber Pro II bead lock wheels and installed on Moby as soon as we could and man, do they ever look GREAT!

To wrap up a perfect week out in the promised land, we did a final run up on the Gold Bar Rim and Golden Spike Trail and took on obstacles such as the Undercut Ledge, Improbable Hill, The Slide, Golden Staircase, the Golden Crack and the Double Whammy.
There is a place located in the Southeast corner of Utah and it is know by Jeepers from around the world as being a holy land of off-roading. It is a land of slick rock, big ledges, intimidating climbs and scary off camber obstacles that have you clinging to the edge of cliff faces over a thousand feet up.
For Cindy and I, Memorial Day weekend is when we like to kick off the summer camping season and for 2016, we decided to do it out in the middle of Nevada and up in the Toiyabe Range.
I know it’s been a long time coming and we apologize for making you wait but Cindy and I are happy to announce that our all new, WAYALIFE Epic Trex Adventure series is finally almost done and it’s going to be called, “MOAB – FORK YEAH!”
Situated between Body Snatcher and the Golden Staircase, Double Whammy is an optional obstacle on the Golden Spike Trail that is known for breaking axles, drive shafts, ring and pinions and on occasions, for rolling Jeeps onto their lids.
Chewy Hill (sometimes referred to as “Which Way”) is the second major obstacle on the Pritchett Canyon Jeep Trail but the first that you have to take on as there are no bypasses.
Rocker Knocker is without question one of the most famous obstacles on the Pritchett Canyon Jeep Trail in Moab, Utah. Essentially a huge set of ledges with a sandy base to make things slick, this obstacle typically requires big horse power or a careful line that will push your Jeep to the edge of flopping on its side.
