Rob Pits of Santa Rosa, California, drives this bright red '06 Jeep LJ Rubicon edition. Featuring a Rubicon Express long-arm suspension system and Teraflex crossover steering, this rig has no problem tackling any of the scenic trails of Northern California. At each end a Hanson Off-road steel bumper protects the rig while adding utility and extraction anchors. A set of 35-inch Pro Comp Xterrain tires are mounted to Pro Comp extreme alloy wheels. Rob added a set of Alloy USA axleshafts at each corner and the rear recently received a DC Customs flexy triangulated four-link conversion. Nice rig, Rob!
TJ Able of Santa Rosa, California, tells us his '06 Jeep LJ has been through way too many revisions to list every individual component he's added. Suspension, for instance, has no less than three different brands of parts that together provide 6 inches of lift. A whole assortment of Poison Spyder Customs body armor protect the body, while a pair of Hanson Off-Road bumpers improves rock worthiness. Pro Comp Xterrain tires are mounted to Pro Comp Extreme Alloy wheels. Under the hood a K&N cold-air intake helps the factory 4.0L engine breath.

Robert Slocum of Johns Creek, Georgia, enjoys driving his '98 TJ whenever he gets a chance. Using a mix of different suspension system parts, Robert was able to raise the rig 6 inches. A Currie 9-inch front and Dana 44 rear house an ARB Air Locker and 4.56 gears. The 36-inch BFG M-Ts provide the traction. This shot was taken at Beasley Knob OHV park.
Lorenzo Pacinin of Ukiah, California, drives this '01 Toyota Tundra daily. This Tundra sports a 4-inch RCD suspension system and a set of 33-inch Cooper Discoverer S/T tires on American Racing Mojave wheels. Lorenzo is very happy with the rig's performance both on the road and off. Sometime in the near future he plans to swap in a Dana 60 front axle and 14-inch Fox coilover shocks.
Jason Casper of Redding, California, uses this '06 Chevy 2500 for work and play. A Trail Master 4-inch suspension system makes room for 35-inch Toyo M/Ts mounted to American Racing wheels. The stock Duramax diesel gets help from a 4-inch turbo-back exhaust system and a Bully Dog PMT programmer. A pair of AMP Research Power Steps make it simple to get in and out of this custom truck.
