Christian Hazel

Editor, Petersen’s 4-Wheel & Off-Road

About Me

Christian Hazel is Editor In Chief of Jp Magazine, the world's largest and oldest Jeep-only publication. He's a life-long gearhead whose interest in anything mechanical or automotive took hold when he was just a little brat and hasgrown in interest and scope ever since. His career as an automotive journalist began in the late 1990s when he joined the staff of Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road Magazine, eventually becoming Technical Editor before transitioning over as Technical Editor and then Editor In Chief of Jp magazine. He has written for numerous Source Interlink Media titles including Four Wheeler, Diesel Power, 4x4 Garage, and others as well as contributing to SEMA newsletters and serving as industry and marketing consultant to various OE and aftermarket manufacturers. His body of written work is as vast and varied as his list of project vehicles, with editorial stories ranging from full throwdown shootouts, new product and vehicle reviews, entertainment pieces, competition articles and videos, and in-depth technical reviews, installations, and how-to stories. You're more likely to find Christian behind the wheel of a vintage Willys, Kaiser, or AMC-era Jeep than a brand-new, shiny modern model. For Christian, form follows function, patina trumps paint, and Jeep is more a lifestyle than a brand name.
