Dan sent us a few images of this '00 Jeep Wrangler and writes, "My friends do not understand why I spend so much time and money on my little Jeep. They think all I do is take it out and trash it and then have to spend all day fixing it. Although you can't see it in the picture, my windshield banner says it all. It reads: `If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand.'"Found on his Jeep is a 6-inch Rough Country lift, Skyjacker Nitro 8000 shocks, Tom Wood driveshafts, Superior Axle & Gear axleshafts, an HD slip-yoke eliminator, 33-inch BFGoodrich M-T tires, Quadratec front and rear bumpers, and a whole lot more. We understand your passion for off-roading, Dan. Keep on wheeling!
After three years of driving his Chevy truck, Jeremy Hill knew it was time to bring it into his shop and make some modifications. He didn't just add a simple suspension lift, he removed the entire IFS suspension and swapped in his own creation of a 14-bolt front axle with Dana 60 kingpin knuckles. He then stuffed it with 4.88 gears and Moser inner and 35-spline outer 'shafts spinning Mile Marker locking hubs. Next was a set of 10-inch-lift springs that would elevate his Chevy over 15 inches and allow clearance for 40-inch Pro Comp X-terrain tires. He fabricated custom mounts for dual Bilstein 7100 reservoir shocks on all four corners. On top of suspension modifications, he also added a Banks exhaust system, headers, and numerous body upgrades. His initial build took over a year, but he loves what his truck is capable of now.
We are always proud to receive images from the people overseas fighting for our country and also love including their experiences in Off-Road magazine. Some of us only wheel on the weekends, while these guys are doing it every day, all day long. Here you can see Sgt. Ricky Fansler, Spc. Steve McCoy Jr., and civilians Matt Lightfoot and Chris Tuner atop their Humvee. To help make their Humvee stand out from the others, Matt and Chris built a snake-headed front bumper to strike fear into the enemy when coming over a sand dune in combat. We love the new bumper! Be safe over there, gentlemen.
"This truck was built for go, not show," owner Michael Lincoln of Marble Hill, Missouri, informs us.
His '76 Ford F-250 High-Boy took well over one year to build, including replacing the stock axles with 2-1/2-ton Rockwells. The truck is running over 12 inches of lift with a 460ci big-block pushing 39.5-inch Bogger tires. His favorite place to wheel is in the mud pits near his home in Missouri, and anywhere else he can find a trail suitable for his monster Ford.
