Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Four-wheeling expert and fanatic Jim Allen has long been four-wheelers’ most respected and reliable guide. This new edition of Allen’s bestselling Four-Wheeler’s Bible includes all the basics for getting the most out of your four-wheeler, along with updates on new vehicles, projects, events, and opportunities. The book begins with basic modifications--such as increasing ground clearance and traction with larger wheels and tires--then gathers speed for more advanced and radical mods, from installing lift kits to increasing suspension articulation. Step-by-step photo sequences guide you through whatever modifications suit your vehicles and your needs.

With the best information on the latest Jeeps and other off-road vehicles; the most trustworthy advice on used and vintage models; and the most up-to-date news about events, courses, and competitions, this new edition of the Four-Wheeler’s Bible is a resource no four-wheeler will want to be without.
