    Honestly, I have no idea if there will be a part 4. I just know how many days we wheeled around the desert, rocks and woods. Eddie and Cindy only know the secret number of parts in a series

    Even though I have been honored and privileged to be invited or support many of these events, I always look forward to the WAYALIFE Videos as much as I do when I get the phone call or text from Mel Wade asking if I want to go wheeling. And usually he reaches out at a bizarre time of day, and always just days or hours from the start of a pre-run or the event itself. It’s all part of the adventure!

    Greg, your absolutely right WAYALIFE videos are something to look forward to, every one of them. And yep when Mel says “hey, want to go wheeling tomorrow”, it was a no brainer yes. And it turned out to be an epic adventure with some awesome folks for sure! lol.

    Cool video as always. Love the music at the petroglyphs.
    The concrete building looked familiar too.
    Also the ranch is a cool place.
    Great trip.
    The mountains are calling and I must go.

    The JL didn't shift off the jack, if you listen carefully, you can "hear" a *ping* just as the jack gave out. You can even hear the jack having issues as Kelly tries to raise the Jeep a bit higher and Harris comments about how it didn't sound good. A scissor jack really should never be used to work on a Jeep especially being one that is MUCH TALLER and heavier than stock - what a scissor jack was made for.

    Yeah, we got lucky for sure. If you're gonna lift your Jeep and carry a LOT more weight, you really should carry a jack that can accommodate both. Glad you liked the video.

    Sucks that the shafts are still unequal lengths.

    And I love petroglyphs, especially kokopellis.
    The jack failure was exciting for sure and we were lucky nobody got hurt. The shaft length difference is a bummer but nothing new.

Getting to experience all the hidden treasures along the way have always been the best memories.

    Cindy/Eddie, I cannot emphasize enough how grateful I am that you were both there to capture it all for everyone. I am always amazed at how you completely capture the feeling of the entire trip on film. Something not very easy to do.
    Thank you so much!
    Thank you Greg, we're truly flattered you would say as much. We know full well that there are people out there who are way better at this, have much nicer equipment and get tons more views on YouTube but we try our hardest to capture what we can. For better or for worse, a lot of that is just us having a good time with good friends - people like you.

    Oh yeah, the JL's are definitely an improvement over the JK and we're glad you've been enjoying the ride

    Ok what bottle jack is that. I’m sold...
    The jack you see in the video is one that I bought from Napa 25 years or so ago. I don't think that particular model is made anymore but I do have a link under the video on the first post that goes to one you can buy on Amazon that's similar. At least, in terms of capacity and size.

    Bagdad Az, never would've imagined it being that scenic.

    Did Harris just happened to have a spare shaft and get lucky it was the drive side?

    Good thing Harris was quick on his feet - damn, that sucks.

    The scissor jack on my JK failed at the threads, it just quit lifting without getting the tire off the ground - to have it in the in the air like that and buckle ...wow!
    Harris bent his shaft prior to the JLX and was carrying a new replacement shaft just in case. By the time we got to Sedona, it was worse and he had enough of the squeaking it was making.

That’s not something the “pros” are going to be able to do and makes all your vids so fun. Can’t wait for the next part. Thanks for putting these together.
    Thank you. Fortunately, we are all friends and it never takes any effort to capture all the fun we're really having. We're so glad you enjoy all our sillyness.

    Yeah, got confirmation about them after the fact. If you have a Rubicon, it's important to know.

    Actually, there was only going to be 3 parts with this one going to the very end. Being that we were falling behind and started to realize just how long it would have been, we decided to cut it and make the rest of it a 4th and final part. Coming soon

    As you know, it'd been a while since we've attended one of these and I can't tell you just how glad Cindy and I were to see you joining in for the fun. So hope we can do it again and soon.

    LOL - thank you again for having out to the ranch. We had a great time and appreciated your hospitality

    I am surprised that no one carries a jack stand. Luckily no one was hurt. Can't wait till the 4th episode.
