My Jeep, Built By Me… That Is Him
Adam VanSlyke of Washington, Ohio, sent us this image of his ’94 YJ. He built it every bit of it and should be proud, buying tools and learning how when he came across something he did not know how to do. The Jeep has huge list of improvements, but highlights include a spring-over suspension with Skyjacker shocks, 4.88 gears, a 31-spline Ford 8.8 rear axle, a center axle disconnect delete with 760X U-joints and axles, and more. Adam tells us his favorite wheeling spot is at the Badlands, Attica, Indiana. Well done, Adam. Hope to see you on the trail one day.
Hey man, how’s the air up there? Jeff Medeiros of Wilson, Wyoming, sent us this awesome shot of his ‘01 TJ. Jeff claims that the Wrangler has very few mods, but it looks like it’s getting the job of getting Jeff out in nature done. Simple the Jeep may be, but an AEM intake and Magnaflow exhaust help with breathing even at elevation while a set of Rancho shocks smooth the bumpy trails. For traction, 31x10.50R15 MTRs are mounted on factory 15x8-inch rims.
Give GPW to Verne!
OK, Verne likes flatties (especially tan ones), and he really wants a GPW. That’s why Mike Lamprecht of Saratoga, Wyoming, should give Verne this nicely restored ’45 GPW as soon as possible. Mike tells us that the old Ford was restored with parts and sage advice from the folks at Beachwood Canvas Works. Mike undertook this project with his son, just like Mike and his father did when Mike was a youngster with a ’43 jeep. Nice rig Mike, we really like that top! Well done, now hand it over!
