Jenny The Jeep
This submission comes to us from Stuart Allen of West Grove, Pennsylvania. Allen writes that his wife Janell named their ’99 Wrangler TJ Jenny. When he asked why, she stated that the name just sounded fun. The couple uses the TJ for exploring the unpaved back roads around their property during the winter. In the summer months, the TJ can usually be found toting a paddleboard to a nearby lake.

An Erie JK
Mike Alward from Erie, Pennsylvania, sent us this photo of his ’10 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. It’s fit with a 3.5 Rock Krawler suspension system, which clears 37x12.50R17 Cooper STT tires on 17-inch XD Addict wheels. Other performance modifications include a K&N intake, MagnaFlow exhaust, and Superchips programmer. ShrockWorks bumpers add front and rear protection, while a Smittybilt XRC12 winch is there in case he (or someone else) needs a pull. Rounding out his list of mods are KC Lights, a Poison Spyder Customs EVAP skidplate, and custom trimmed fender flares. Alward states that his wife and two boys frequently hit the trail with him and he’s been enjoying his daily driven JK for some time now.

A Looker
We got a lot of photos but not a lot of information on the ’46 Willys you see here. We do know that Dave Lewis is the proud owner and his rig appears to be a very well preserved flatfender.

Third Time’s A Charm
Jerry Hinkley has owned his ’79 CJ-7 since 1985. He states that since originally purchasing the rig, he has completely rebuilt it three times. It currently rides on a 4-inch Superlift suspension system with a 2-inch body lift. The tires are 35-inch-tall Mickey Thompson MTZs, which the mildly built 304ci engine has no trouble turning over. Replacing the stock transmission is a T-18 four-speed, and inside of the modified axles you’ll find Detroit Lockers. A custom front bumper holds a Warn winch, and the homemade cage is designed to keep Hinkley and his passengers safe.

Born Jeeper
Courtney Dillon is a self-described Jeep fanatic, and judging from her collection, we think she’s serious. The 16-year-old writes in that she currently owns a ’04 Liberty and ’79 CJ-7. The rest of the lot you see here belong to her Jeep loving parents. Dillon states that she enjoys working on her Jeeps and is thankful to have such great parents that support her hobby and help her wrench.

Willys JK
Arthur Erickson of Alberta, Canada, always loved the timeless look of a Willys wagon but didn’t have the time or ability to keep one on the road. So he decided to turn his ’09 Wrangler Unlimited JK into a Willys Wagon-themed daily driver. Its uses Pure Jeep flat fenders, a hood bump from a Lincoln, and the grille is made from bar stock. It also has an ASFIR winch mount with hitch receiver, along with aftermarket differential covers and skidplates.
