It’s true: I love all Jeeps. Even the ones I personally find unappealing. I just have to step back and remember that beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder, and what I enjoy looking at doesn’t always reflect what the rest of the Jeeping world likes. We all have our own predilections for certain styles, as well as for what any particular Jeep is used for. Some Jeepers want to take a flattie and make it a rockcrawler, while others are repulsed by the abomination of ruining a vintage Jeep. In fact, both schools of thought hold merit, and it isn’t anyone’s place to be the one calling foul on another Jeeper. I’ve done plenty of mods and restos in my lifetime, and I bet I’ll screw up…

jpeditor@jpmagazine.com Factory V-8 Gladiator? I’ve been really busy lately, but just got enough free time that I could read all the issues of magazines (including and first Jp) that have been piling up untouched on the table. In “Jeep News & Rumors” (Dispatch, June ’19), you asked the question, “Is Jeep planning a version of the Gladiator to compete with the desert-derbying capabilities of the Ford F-150 Raptor and Chevy Colorado ZR2?” The Raptor or Colorado ZR2 are likely very good competitors when it comes to open dirt roads with little or real obstacles other than some tight corners, but there is no doubt in my mind that a stock Gladiator Rubicon would leave a Raptor or a Colorado ZR2 floundering on any serious off-road trail. Now, if Jeep could figure out how to…

jpeditor@jpmagazine.com Family Project Dover, Pennsylvania, is home to the Pittenger family and their 2015 Jeep Wrangler Hard Rock Edition JKU. Branden and his two sons have been building it over the last year. He says it was a learning process, and he is taking his time to build it right. So far the modifications include a MetalCloak 3.5-inch Game-Changer suspension paired with Falcon 3.3 shocks, for a ride height of 4 to 6 inches. They installed a Rock Hard sport cage to keep the family safe and have recently added a RedRock high-clearance exhaust. Keep up the good work, Pittenger family. It’s looking good! Twofer TJs Dylan Schoenfelt is from Shawnee, Kansas, and he and his dad love to wheel their TJs in Colorado. The black TJ belongs to Dylan’s dad; it’s a 2004…

awesome australia

jpeditor@jpmagazine.com Australia is best known for its famous outback and the rugged individuals and vehicles that conquered the continent. It’s far more than an ancient land of kangaroos and convicts—it’s a multicultural nation of indigenous tribes and modern settlers. But in the very heart of the continent lies the Simpson Desert, which is made up of 1,100 dunes that provide a beautiful barrier to most travel across it. In fact, for 500 miles the area has no water, food, fuel, shelter, or shade. But back in 1969, a group of hardy explorers and Jeepers decided that it should be crossed—with the new Jeep Overlander that was then being built in Australia. Ian McDonald planned and orchestrated a group of individuals and corporate Jeep sponsorship to make the journey. After 44 days…
