The modifications list we received on Anthony Hilbers' '94 Jeep Grand Cherokee was three pages long! Just a few of the key components he has installed to make his rig capable of just about anything are a complete exoskeleton 'cage fabricated by Jeep Outfitters, a PSC hydraulic-assist steering, Dana 44 axles, Tom Wood's driveshafts, a Warn 9500ti winch, a Painless wiring kit, and an assortment of protective gear.
"My Jeep ain't pretty, but it's an awesome machine. It took many broken parts, body damage, and rollovers to make it the way it is now," says Widodo Teguh of Solo, Indonesia.
It's a shame we could only include one of the images Widodo sent us - the beauty and challenge of his local trails would astonish our readers. His '81 Jeep CJ-7 is running 37-inch Bogger tires on Pro Comp steel wheels.
For many folks, their off-road toys are also daily drivers. Jeremy Hendershot of Christiana, Tennessee, sent this image of his Suzuki Samurai wheeling in the country outside of Summertown, Tennessee. He has already converted his suspension using a spring-over lift kit combined with an Old Man Emu 1.5-inch suspension system. Also added were a set of Rocky Road 2-inch shackles and Calmini headers.
A Worthy Sidekick
You don't see a lot of Suzuki Sidekicks on the trail, but every now and then one pops up that is worthy of mentioning. Brian Olowiany's '95 Sidekick took a turn for the dirt not long after he drove it home for the first time. Brian wanted to prepare his vehicle for much more than it would be able to tackle in stock form. To accomplish this, he installed a Calmini 3-inch lift, Old Man Emu struts, Doetsch long-travel shocks, Super Swamper LTB tires, and ARB Air Lockers front and rear.
