4 Wheel Drive & Sport Utility Magazine's very own tech editor, Christian Lee, has finally finished and released his first book, High-Performance Jeep Wrangler TJ Builder's Guide: 1997-2006. The guide explains how to upgrade your Wrangler's suspension, axles, differentials, engine, transfer case, wheels and tires, skidplates, and more using aftermarket and salvage-yard parts.

The February 2007 release includes over 350 full-color images and drawings to show beginners and experienced Jeepers alike the right way to maximize their Wrangler's off-road prowess. Christian even includes special sections for basic driving and recovery techniques, as well as photos of built-up Jeeps to give you ideas for your own Wrangler.

From the Willys-Overland Jeeps of World War II, to the CJ models of the '70s and '80s, to the more civilized Wrangler, the Jeep has become an American icon. Jeep maintained its popularity by updating and modernizing the traditional two-door, removable-top Jeep without watering down its off-road capability. This was especially true for the Wrangler TJ, which featured an all-new coil-spring suspension design, a heavy-duty drivetrain, and the best around-town manners of any open-air Jeep to date. This book is great for Jeep owners who love to personalize their vehicles and upgrade them for better performance on- and off-road.

The 8-1/2x11-inch softbound High-Performance Jeep Wrangler TJ Builder's Guide: 1997-2006 features 144 pages packed with 350 color photos and is available for $24.95 plus $4.95 shipping and handling by calling CarTech at (800) 551-4754 or by visiting
