If you're looking to build a Jeep and are searching for a good book to brush up on your automotive knowledge, check out Jeep 4x4 Performance Handbook by Jim Allen. This book covers: upgrading your wheels and tires, new steering and suspension systems, engine swaps, building and repairing axles, and installing safety equipment and accessories.

The Jeep aftermarket is second to none when it comes to modifications, and with new Jeep vehicles rolling out each year, there follows a stream of new and better bolt-on goodies. Jeep 4x4 Performance Handbook offers just the help you need to incorporate superior aftermarket components on your vehicle. The book includes a wealth of information on most Jeep models for both the experienced and beginners alike, including overviews of OEM parts and aftermarket upgrades.

One of the reasons we chose to highlight this book among the hundreds like it is that it was written by an experienced four-wheeler. Allen has been behind the wheel of Jeeps longer than some of us have even been around. Reading his tips throughout the book reveals that he isn't just repeating stories heard on the trail: He shares his own experiences. Allen is also a certified ASE mechanic and an off-road driving instructor.

Spend some time perusing this book and you may just learn a trick or two that will save you some money, keep busted knuckles to a minimum, and polish your 4x4 education.
