  • Posted an article in Project Vehicles

    Rather than dive into Project FarmHaul with a bunch of work truck-specific modifications, we’ll spend a couple of issues doing some housekeeping to get the vehicle up to snuff.

    Like many other hard-charging, Jeep-building adventurers, my next generation will know how to work with their hands and won’t know the constraints of a rough road ahead of them.

  • Posted an article in engine

    Welcome back to our series on properly diagnosing mechanical problems rather than blindly chucking money at replacement parts hoping to stumble on a fix.

    Jeeps racing, hauling, and getting married

    The new Jeep Renegade is designed to capture the young market of mid-size SUV buyers, and it is aimed squarely at that demographic but is it worthy of wearing the iconic seven slat grille?

  • Posted an article in news

    The Jeep Renegade and Renegade Trailhawk are in many ways Jeep’s first truly globally viable offering, poised to enter markets in Asia, Europe, and South America where even the new Jeep KL Cherokee would seem big and uneconomical.

    I was super-close to pulling the trigger on a 440-powered ’75 Dodge W200 4x4 when I stumbled across a ’72 J4000 pickup on Craigslist.

    Now, with the digital age upon us and a sea of friends, family, and even strangers literally at our fingertips, it’s all too easy to stay in touch (sometimes too in touch) with the world.

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 has grown 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.
