Daniel Busk's '74 CJ-5 is more than just a wheeler, it's a "family relocation device," as he likes to call it. Although his Jeep does not sport a great deal of modifications at this point, it takes his family everywhere they need to go. This rig's future will involve the addition of a long-arm suspension system, 35-inch tires, and a few more horsepower under the hood. Daniel snapped this photo on a family trip to San Rafael Swell in southern Utah this past winter.
Crossing the Country
From state to state, Brian Burr of Boston, Massachusetts, takes his '03 Isuzu VehiCross everywhere he travels. You don't see a ton of these vehicles on the trails, but that didn't stop Brian from building and wheeling his. This rig runs a 3-inch lift with OME 912 springs, a ball-joint flip, adjusted torsion bars, BFG 33x10.5R15 Mud-Terrain tires, a Warn 6,000-pound winch, and custom sliders built by Swordy.
$100 Car Wash
Justin Coffey of Clovis, California, is no stranger to getting dirty on the weekend. This picture was taken after a recent trip through the mud pits near his home. His '93 Jeep YJ is equipped with a 4-inch suspension lift and runs atop 33-inch mud-terrain tires. The front bumper he fabricated will soon be accompanied by a Warn winch as well as a set of Pro Comp off-road lights.
The list of modifications to Ian Austin's '96 Jeep Cherokee Country is plentiful. He is a United States Marine stationed at Camp Pendleton, California, but calls Louisville, Colorado, home. He calls his rig his "paycheck eater" but admits that it helps relieve the stress of a busy military lifestyle. A few of the modifications are a Rubicon Express 3.5-inch kit, JKS quick disconnects, a Rubicon slip-yoke eliminator, 32-inch BFG All-Terrain tires, a Warn Magnum 9K winch, a Garmin eTrex Legend GPS, and much more. Thank you for the compliments on our magazine, Ian, but we have to thank you for all the hard work you put in every day to protect this country.
