Ol' Blue . . .

. . . Mountain Jeep Alliance, that is. Fred Grant from somewhere in Pennsylvania, probably near Hazelton, has a '98 TJ. He's a member of the Blue Mountain Jeep Alliance, which wheels in Paragon Adventure Park and Rausch Creek Off Road Park. His Jeep has all the stock sport goodies with a Ford 8.8 rear and D30 front sporting 4.56 gears for good measure. The 4.56s help to turn 37x12.50-15 Goodyear MT/Rs on 15x8 American Racing 589 rims. Allowing the tires to clear the fenders is a Black Diamond 3.5-inch lift with 1.75-inch spacers and a 1-inch body lift. Up front is an old-style Warn 8274-50 winch and modified flatfenders la CJ-2A. The TJ also has a Four X Doctor front diff guard, Skid Row control-arm skids, Currie Rock Ribz rocker guards, and a TeraFlex belly-up skid for the middle bits.

Sideways YJ

Jerry Bullard of Lake Forest, California, sent us this shot of his '93 Wrangler on Moab Rim in Moab, Utah, for Sideways. Being the miscreants that we are, we've decided to put it here and tell you about his Jeep. It's got Dana 44s front and rear running the stock engine and trans but an Atlas 4.3 transfer case. He flopped it on its side trying to show off for a bunch of hikers. That's his son Daniel on the left, who simply couldn't believe that Dad flopped the Jeep. It was built to wheel, though, not sit in the driveway and look pretty.

Little Flightline Jeep

Lisa DePasqua put a ton of time into her "Little Jeep." It's an M-38AI with an all-original drivetrain gone over by Lisa and her friend Bruce Steinhauer. It's sporting the F-head 134ci engine, a T-90 transmission, a Spicer model 18 transfer case, and a Dana 44 rear and Dana 27 front axle in the stock 5.38:1 gear ratio. Since Lisa is an airplane nut as well, she used a lot of airplane-type stuff to update the Jeep. It's wired like an airplane with multiple terminal strips and a wiring diagram to aid in troubleshooting with a combination of circuit breakers and fuses for shorts. She used navigation lights from a Cessna for side turn signals and landing gear indicators from a 727 for the dashboard turn-signal indicator. The corner guards and rocker guards are 1 1/4-inch aluminum held on by solid aircraft rivets to the tune of 98 in the corner and 56 in the rocker. Sitting in the seat is her new pup Boeing, who gives the whole thing his paw of approval.
