WTF Edition

We get plenty of Jeep Chix, Vintage Edition, Military Edition, and just general old goody stuck-in-the-mud submissions for Sideways. But sometimes we get an email or photo that we're just not sure what to do with. Maybe it's not goofy enough, maybe it's kinda cool, maybe it's not even a Jeep. Maybe we'll bring you more WTF submissions in the future, but no matter what your Jeep-goof, flub, memory, or stuck-send them over to or snail mail 'em to Jp magazine, Sideways, 831 S. Douglas St., El Segundo, CA 90245.

Loooong Story
The kids were bigger and I was tired of hauling a trailer to go to Calico to shoot. It was time for the Jeep to evolve and lose the wimpy fold-and-tumble rear seat. I stretched the frame of my '78 CJ-7 42 inches and added the back half of another CJ-7. With the wheelwells removed, I was able to add two buckets in the back.

Skin-Deep Jeep
I just wanted to show you my Jeep tattoos done by my buddy Jon Egenlauf from ART FX ( in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Christian Hazel should get one on the top of his head!

Where There's Willys,There's a Way
This is how we park the Toy Hauler in tight spaces. It's definitely a slow, low range process. For those interested the Jeep is a '54 CJ-3B with a Kenne Bell Buick V-6, Warn Overdrive and hubs, 11-inch brakes, and Saginaw steering.
