Father and SonFrank Bares and his son Ryan have spent the last three years building their '92 Toyota 4Runner project vehicle into what you see today. They have added over 5 inches of suspension lift, a custom-built Dana 44 front axle, front and rear ARB lockers, 5.28 ring-and-pinion gears, and more. Their playground of choice happens to be the trails of Moab, Utah, where this photo was taken during a recent outing.

Naval WheelerHunter Haltom of Omaha, Nebraska, takes time off from duty in the U.S. Navy for some wheeling with his friends. His '94 ZJ is equipped with a 4-1/2-inch Rubicon Express lift with adjustable control arms, Bilstein shocks, 4.56 ring-and-pinion gears, and 33x12.5-inch rubber. When Hunter's on leave, you can find him anywhere from the East Coast to the West Coast looking for some dirty action.

Her Pride and JoyDuring a recent trip to Moab, Utah, Misty and Mike Wilkes of Pinedale, Wyoming, snapped a few nice photographs of Misty's '94 Cherokee. So far, she has installed a 5-1/2-inch Rubicon Express lift, ACOS coil spacers, an ARB snorkel, K&N air intake, Flowmaster exhaust, KC off-road lighting, a Safari roof rack, and much more. The next phase for Misty's rig will invlove installing an exoskeleton rollcage and upgrading the axles.

Super 'zukiPaul Proctor is definitely not afraid to push his '86 Suzuki Samurai to the limit. He is part of the Bullhead Arizona Four-Wheelers Club and spends countless weekends throughout the year on the trails. His rig runs a 9-inch SPOA lift, 35-inch Wrangler MT/R tires, Lock-Right lockers, and 6:1 transfer case gears. Plans for this Sami include the addition of a new engine and some increased protection equipment.
