As I’m sure is the case for most people, the Holidays is a busy time of year for Cindy and I and planning things like trips with friends is difficult to do. And, when I got a message from mcpuck saying that a few of our old friends were planning a get together out in Laughlin and that we were invited to come, we moved things around and made sure that we could join them.
Thanks to the well needed El Nino we’re seeing this year, we’ve been having an awesome winter and one filled with lots of snow. Yesterday was no exception and after spending the better part of the day indoors catching up on work, Cindy and I started to go stir crazy and decided to stop what we were doing and get out into the white stuff for a bit.
This video and the write-up below will show you just how easy it is to install a set of AlloyUSA X-Joints with full circle clips onto one of their chomoly front axle shafts.
Woke up this morning to another glorious day filled with snow and couldn’t resist the urge to get out in it. So, Cindy and I had a quick cup of coffee, packed up Rubicat and headed up King Canyon to have some fun.
After spending the last few days in the garage working on Jeeps, Cindy and I decided we needed a break and so we packed up Rubicat and headed out to do some exploring.
For Cindy and I, the Jeep WAYALIFE has always been more about the places our rigs can take us than just getting out and driving over stuff. Not that there’s anything wrong with the latter but we already make plenty of videos of that. With that said, we wanted to change things up a bit and decided to make this short video to highlight an amazing “destination” that our Jeep took us to. We hope that you’ll enjoy it and maybe be inspired to get out and do it for yourself!
The link below is a thread we have going on WAYALIFE and in it, you will get to see all kinds of great photos of Jeep JK Wranglers and more out in the snow.
The weekend before Thanksgiving, Cindy and I were getting the itch to get out and do some rockhounding. We had been reading about some trilobite fossils that can be found south of Goldfield, NV and so we decided to pack our bags and our Jeep Renegade and headed on out.
As some of you may know, we’ve been looking for and photographing these 50 ft. arrows and on occasion, towers as well for over two years now and on this trip, it was our hope to find a few located all the way out on the eastern edge of the state.
With all the snow that we just got up in the Reno/Carson City area, Cindy and I were just itchin to get out and play in it. So, after taking care of some work, we packed up Rubicat and made our way over to a trail that starts on the west end of Reno and climbs up the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
As was the case last year, the show was absolutely packed full of vehicles and I’d have to say that SEMA is really starting to look and feel like it had about 10 years ago. In fact, there were so many Jeeps at the show that I have no doubts that there were more than a few we missed in spite of our best efforts to capture all of them.
WOO-HOO!!! It’s SEMA time again and as always, we Cindy and I will be covering the show LIVE from Las Vegas, Nevada! In fact, this will be our 11th year doing this and we invite all of you yet again to attend this amazing show virtually by following us here on this thread.
Last week, Cindy I got a call from our good friends Chris and Jen and they wanted know if we might want to hook up with them to do some ghost town exploring in the Northern Nevada desert.
Starting Sunday, November 1st, Cindy and I will be covering the 2015 SEMA Show LIVE and invite you to join us virtually by following us here on WAYALIFE.com! You can be sure we’ll be covering EVERYTHING Jeep related and more with TONS of detailed Hi-Res photos. Of course, if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see, please let us know and we’ll be sure keep an eye out for it.
Okay, been meaning to take Rubicat out for a while now and do some flex tests now that we’ve got her back on 40×15.50 Nitto Mud Grapplers.
Outside of the Rubicon and the Dusy Ershim, Fordyce is without question one of toughest trails in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and depending on who you talk to, the hardest of the three. While it wasn’t our original plan to run this trail, it wouldn’t be the first time we’ve gone off script, on a whim and really, that’s the kind of thing that makes an epic trek like this so much fun.
Just 2 more days till the release of SNAKE EYES : A fateful Trip across the Fordyce Jeep Trail! To keep your juices flowing, here’s another short teaser clip from the film and this time, it’s of Moby taking on the infamous Winch Hill #1.
In this short teaser video from our upcoming SNAKE EYES film, you’ll get to see our good friend Jeff fording his way through Water Crossing #1.
