Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For backwoods exploration, supersized rockcrawling, and deep, mud-bogging, off-road action, Jeeps have been the vehicle of choice for over 60 years. Joy of Jeep takes the reader on a wild trip through the trails, competitions, and events that have made off-road Jeeps one of the most popular recreational vehicles around. With detailed vehicle specs, aftermarket parts and accessory tips, and contacts for all the major clubs and events, this is where any off-road Jeep lover should start.

Tom Morr and Ken Brubaker take you into the heart of adventure Jeeping, exposing the wild stunts, environments, and trucks in full-color, mud-splattered glory. From restored Willys Wagons and chrome-covered CJs to beefed-up YJ Wranglers and nearly-stock Grand Cherokees and Libertys…the entire Jeep family is covered. With expert knowledge, research, and beautiful photography, Morr and Brubaker celebrate the Jeeping lifestyle with Joy of Jeep.
