Jeep YJ, Wife-Approved
This is my wife, Gina, and we have a lifted, but fairly stock, ’90 YJ. She has always wanted one, and since we got this little machine early this summer, I can’t keep her out of it. We live north of Lincoln, Nebraska, but the photo was taken at Tuttle Creek ORV Park in Randolf, Kansas. This is our go-to for getting away and spending the weekend in the mud and the rocks.

Honestly, We Have a Life
We live and breathe Jeeps. That’s why we have the best job—getting to work at Jp magazine. But as often as we hear, “You have the best job in the world,” we also hear, “Do you do anything other than work/wrench/wheel?” Mostly, that comes from our significant others and family, but here’s proof that sometimes we do have a life. This is staffer Ali Mansour and his wee girl, Jeep. OK, not really, but we guarantee the name was up for consideration. Ali posted this as a #TBT. Or as he put it, “Throw baby Thursday! Wait, that’s a thing, right?”
Jp’s Katie—Former Poison Spyder Girl!
You know our resident Katie is both a hottie and a DIY-er. But before Jp magazine, her life was as a model. We actually consider her a supermodel, because she made the Top 10 list of the Poison Spyder girl contest. Heidi Klum can’t even claim that. Follow Katie at facebook.com/catchingupwithkatie.
Key to Marriage: Call the Wife Beautiful, Not the JK
Here’s a picture of my beautiful wife, Nikki, and our ’11 JK. She loves and enjoys the Jeep as much as I do. This was taken during a weekend camping trip in Northern Michigan.
