Having a well-stocked Jeep with all the supplies and tools for nearly any dilemma is becoming a lost concept—with people going out in the boonies without even a jack to change a flat tire. Would you go into the restroom and not check for a roll of toilet paper before sitting down? Of course not. So why would anyone go Jeeping into the wilds without a jack? Of course, some “experts” would argue that fixing a punctured tire with a plug kit and airing it back up is just as easy, and that it saves weight by not having to pack a jack. And for the most part that can be true, but not when a shattered log is sticking out of the sidewall of your tire. Granted, the offending log…

jpeditor@jpmagazine.com Final Word This is the final word on if a Mahindra Roxor or any other Jeep is a Jeep. If the occupants of other Jeeps wave to you on the road or trail, it’s a Jeep. If they don’t, it’s just a grocery getter or commuter in Jeep clothing. Tom Fogle Sonoma, CA That seems like kind of an arbitrary measuring stick for Jeepdom. If you just so happen to live in a snobbish area where no one is friendly, no Jeep would be considered a Jeep. Conversely, if you live in a small town where everyone knows each other, even a Chevy pickup could be considered a “jeep.” We’re not so sure this is the best method of Jeep identification. What do you think makes a Jeep a Jeep? Drop us a line…

jpeditor@jpmagazine.com Jeep News & Rumors • Jeep decided to get into the web series business and did so with Jeep Wrangler Celebrity Customs. The series had “celebrities” (quotes intentional; you’ll at least know A-Rod) join customizers, including Jeep Performance Parts, to build up some ’18 JLs. A winner was picked, and that person took home something called the Wrangler Golden Grille Award. You can watch the series at jeep.com/celebrity-customs. • Further proof that the new Wrangler is getting a diesel? The mysterious order code 26, which could very well equal a ’19 JL with a 3.0L V-6 diesel and manual transmission. • The Wrangler is in such high demand that the Toledo Assembly Complex in Ohio will have to add a third production shift. That could mean hundreds of jobs created. • AutoPacific named winners…

owner-built v-8 jk8

jpeditor@jpmagazine.com Clark Hill purchased a brand-new 2007 Jeep JKU Rubicon just for the purpose of cutting it up. When we asked why, he said, “I wanted to start the project with a clean slate and not be dealing with the hassle of fixing somebody else’s mistakes while busy building my dream Jeep.” Driving his ambition even more so was the fact that somebody told him that it couldn’t be done. That only made Clark work harder to build a Jeep pickup with generous power and a suspension made to handle any terrain. The two-year process began with the grafting of the JK8 conversion kit to the JKU body. Clark did the cutting, welding, and grinding work on the body rebuild, but he sourced a JK Heat Expulsion Hood engine hood from TOTL…

jk makeover: armor & winch

jpeditor@jpmagazine.com Installing a set of aftermarket front and rear bumpers, a winch, and a better spare tire carrier might be the most common “next step” after upgrading the suspension and getting bigger wheels and tires. That’s true for many new Jeep owners, and it was no different when it came to this two-door JK. We had already planted an AEV 2-inch lift under it and bolted up a sharp-looking set of Method wheels and Falken tires. The ComeUp USA winch and the body armor and better tire carrier from MetalCloak would make this Jeep capable of tackling mild to moderate trails without breaking the bank to do it. MetalCloak makes a wide variety of products for Jeeps, ranging from body armor to suspension systems. We got ahold of its Frame-Built Bumper #1402…
