For a few years, Jp magazine ran a Q&A column in each issue called Ask Bree Three. For the benefit of our new readers, the column featured a scantily-clad model that just happened to be into several types of motorsports, along with three question-and-answer submissions from Jp readers.
Long story short, Ask Bree Three was met with either rank disgust or vibrant enthusiasm. However, the underlying complaint we heard from camps on both sides of the Bree fence was, "Why don't you guys run photos of real Jeep chicks instead of some model who doesn't even pose in front of a Jeep?"
So for those of you wishing for real Jeep chicks, here you go. And remember, submissions for any of our special Sideways editions or regular old off-road gaffe photos can be emailed to email@example.com or snail mailed to Jp Magazine, Sideways, 831 S. Douglas St., El Segundo, CA 90245.
I would like to share pictures of my '05 Rubicon Unlimited and my early '70s Female Blonde. Both are equipped to handle my particular driving style and are specially built with lots of loving care by myself. The Jeep has been virtually trouble free since I have owned it save for a flop and a roll-both my fault. The female, on the other hand, has a tendency to break down once in a while (also my fault, I am told), which requires quite a bit of work to get it back to doing what it was built for.
Build sheet for the Jeep:
•Dana 44s front and rear w/factory lockers, alloy axles, 4.88 gears
•37-inch MTRs on 15-inch OMF beadlocks
•Rubicon Express 5.5-inch long-arm

•Under body armor by AEV, Skid Row, and Kilby

This is a friend's 8701 deluxe power top Jeepster convertible. The model is my niece, Jill. I am working on making a 40th anniversary Jeepster and Commando calendar. I hope you and the readers like my start.

My husband Bernd is a huge fan of your magazine and has had a subscription for 10 years now. He especially likes the Sideways Jeep Chix Edition page and he shows it to me every month. So I just got the idea that it might surprise him when he sees me and his beloved Jeep named "Shelly" ('98 Wrangler Sport, 4.0L, Simex tires, 4-inch suspension, 1.25-inch body lift, dual air lockers). The picture was taken in Italy at the river Tagliamento-a beautiful valley with a turquoise stream where we go camping almost every year.
