'Wheeling Sami
Chris Elison from Susanville, California, sent us this image of his fully built '87 Samurai. This list of build components is quite extensive and impressive. Here's Chris and his son Brandon 'wheeling Moab.

Family Affair
Melissa Rodriguez was at the All-4 Fun event in Leadville, Colorado, when this shot was taken. Melissa hails from Dodge City, Kansas, and wrote us exclaiming, "I L-O-V-E four-wheeling." Here, Melissa is 'wheeling her '82 Jeep Scrambler, one of the many in her stable of Jeeps. The Rodriguez family is three-Jeep-strong and holds the titles to the Scrambler, an '03 Rubicon, and a '95 YJ. All three vehicles keep Melissa's six smiling children happy out on the trail.

Unlimited XJ
This trail-built '88 Jeep Cherokee Limited belongs to Eric Roy of San Jose, California. The images sent of this well-built rig included a shot of the XJ flopped on its side. Of course, the incident will only add marks of character to the rig, and we're positive the Jeep with see many more trails to come.

CJ Brethren
Marc and Jake Keesler sent us these two images of their '85 and '79 CJ-7s out on the trail. The two brothers call Neenah, Wisconsin, home. What a great way to spend the day - out on the trail with your brother and two built CJs.

Trail Wrangler
Four-wheeling in Big Sky Country requires a tough Jeep. Chad Clearly of Gardiner, Montana, sent us this image of his fully built '99 Wrangler making easy work of Montana's tough trails.
