Ghost Jeep

While we aren't sure why the ghostly fog is surrounding this '55 CJ-5, we don't really care either. Wes Teseniar's Jeep has the stock 134ci F-head engine, but its been pepped up with propane and beats the rest of the stock drivetrain with the extra power. The only other modifications are a homemade roll cage and front bumper, a 105-amp alternator, and a Pertronix ignition setup. Wes hails from Lincolnton, North Carolina, and tells us that what he likes most about his jeep are the memories his 6-year-old son will have in the future.

Wife's Beater

Bill Durham sent us a shot of his wife's grocery-getter running Lower Woodpecker in Florence Junction, Arizona. Hailing from Mesa, Arizona, Kellie wreaks havoc on the trails with her '97 ZJ. Its got the stock 4.0/42RE/NV231 combination, with a kick in the crawl ratio in the form of a 4:1 in the transfer case. From there, power goes to the Dana 30 front with 4.10 gears and an ARB Air Locker and the Dana 35 rear with the Superior Axle Super 35 kit, 4.10 gears and Detroit Locker. The Rubicon Express 4.5-inch kit has been modified with 5.5-inch springs in the front and 6-inch springs in the rear. The lift clears the 35x12.5R15 Goodyear MT/Rs. Kellie is still getting speeding tickets on the freeway and still flopping it over on the trails.

Cheromanche

Art Beverleigh sent us in pictures of his '87 and '88 Comanche pickups. Pictured here is the '88 Comanche which got its Cherokee infusion in the form of an AW4 transmission, NP231 T-case and Dana 30 front axle to make the two-wheel drive truck a four-wheel drive. While he didn't tell us what lift and tires he's got, it looks like he's got a set of 305/70R 16 Pro Comp X-terrains with 6 inches of lift to clear them. Art's other MJ is an '88, which took its Cherokee donation in the form of a '93 H.O. 4.0, electronics, and all underhood components.
