Hold Your Breath
When not sailing on Lake Huron, you can find Edward Schwanz navigating his '87 Jeep Cherokee through the local swamps and sinkholes. Apparently, Edward can't keep his toys out of the water.

Dirt Stinger
This yellow-and-black '85 CJ-7 has been restored from the frame up. ARB lockers, a rollcage, a Dana 44 frontend, along with other upgrades, keep this Jeep a force on the trails. According to the owner's friends, when this rig is not tearing up terrain off-road, it's showing off the hood flames on the streets of Las Vegas.

Red Baron Patrol
Patrick Cheever showed us that a little T.L.C. can go a long way. His '65 Nissan Patrol L60 has been a work in progress over nearly four years. If you happen to be a fan of the Patrol, you know how hard it is to find replacement parts. Converting many FJ40 and Jeep brand parts helped turn this into a worthy trail rig for him and his pal.

Part Classic, Part 4x4
Andy Zinda has a fantastic wife at home. Twelve years ago, she purchased this '69 Ford Bronco for her husband. It's equipped with a 302, Edelbrock cams, Dana 30 front axles, Detroit Lockers, stainless headers, a Supertrap exhaust, and an old-school Warn 8274 winch to give this couple plenty of fun on the weekends.
