"Many will recognize the name Jim Allen from past tech and adventure articles published in Four Wheeler. However, in the continued spirit of writing about what he knows and loves, Jim Allen recently published his second book about four Wheeling, this one called the 'Jeep 4x4 Performance Handbook.' Offering a little bit of history, friendly advice, and a whole heap of information about Jeep aftermarket upgrade options, Allen delivers information for both hardcore and beginner alike, in a style both will enjoy. Some of our favorite chapters focused on suspensions ("Long Legs"), tires and wheels ("Footprints in the Sand"), brakes ("Whoa Nellie!"), and electrical systems ("Zap Rap"). For anyone considering a Jeep buildup or who just plain loves Jeeps, this book, at $19.95, offers as much information about Jeeps as you'll ever find in one place."
Already a classic among Jeep enthusiasts, Jim Allen's Jeep 4x4 Performance Handbook undergoes its own performance upgrade in this new edition, which introduces all-color photography and covers Jeep models that have appeared or changed significantly since the 1999 edition. The guide explains modifications for off-road driving and engine and drivetrain hop-ups for improved street performance and towing capabilities. It ranges from suspension systems, brakes, transmissions, tires and wheels to electric systems, winches, and other recovery gear, and includes an extensive listing of suppliers and retailer.
