Off-Duty Jeep
When officer Shawn of Universal City, Texas, isn't busting criminals for loitering about the local liquor store, he can be found 'wheeling near his home in Cibolo Creek. His '02 TJ is equipped with an OR FAB Sport Cage, 4.56 ring-and-pinion, Detroit Lockers, AOJ T-bars, and more. Thanks for the picture, Shawn. If we're ever in your neck of the woods, we will be sure to stop at every stop sign.

First In Class
Gregory Hart took his '99 TJ to a local mud bog competition and ended up finishing first in class. His rig is equipped with a Rough Country 4-inch suspension system, 32-inch TSL radial tires, and a Ramsey 8K winch for rescue and recovery. Congratulations on the win, and tell your wife to keep snapping pictures like this.

Dirty Duo
Colton Stark and his good friend Tyler Eckert are both on their way to Colorado to attend college. During a recent 'wheeling trip, they found a local mudhole and decided to find out what $20 at the local spray-and-wash would clean. The pair started their own four-wheeling club called The Backyard Boggers, with members joining from surrounding areas. Good luck in college, guys, and have fun hitting the trails in Colorado.

Daly Driver
Brian Daly of Grand Junction, Colorado, has been the proud owner of this '77 CJ-7 since the age of 15. When he first received the Jeep, it was bone-stock seeking attention. He has added a 4-1/2-inch Rubicon Express Lift Kit, 33-inch tires, and custom aluminum wheels. When Brian isn't busy with schoolwork, he is a local trail guide for some of the desert trails around his hometown.
