Ultimate Adventure Jeep CJ-7: The UACJ

Posted in Ultimate Adventure: 2010 on November 1, 2010

The Ultimate Adventure Jeep started as a pile of parts (Péwé's Pile) but has quickly progressed to a hot rod. With a 400-plus-horsepower V-8 ("Erod Action," Sept. '10) and a strong, flexible suspension ("UACJ," Oct. '10), the Jeep should be trail capable, but every hot rod needs some style. Many of you know that Editor Péwé is a fan of Jeeps, Coronas, and sandals, but you may not know that he is also a huge military airplane buff. The story goes that as a small boy he traveled into the hills of Arizona (via Jeep flatfender, of course) to help retrieve a wrecked Boeing B-17 bomber with some family friends, and he has been enthralled ever since.

Thus the idea for the CJ-17 was born, part Jeep, part warbird. We already showed you the power and suspension for takeoffs and landings. Now see how we built a safe cockpit and gave this Jeep a bit of bomber flair.
