More Cheap Jeep
I have a '93 grand Cherokee 4x4 (A/C broken, needs a fuel pump, 4.0 L six, headliner held up with stick pins, 270,000 miles, and so on) that really wants Editor Péwé to buy it for 350 dollars or so. The body is in good condition with only a few parking lot dings in it. There is a lot of surface rust on the roof, but it is not rusted through. It runs fine, except the fuel pump just went out. Please feel free to ask any questions if interested. It really does not want to go to the old Jeeps home, and when I told it about Mr. Pewe's retirement farm it got really excited. I do not have the money to have a project Jeep right now and no place to store it, so it's gotta go somewhere. That's all I am saying :-)
Yes, I'm interested. The price is right, but you are a bit geographically inconvenient to me, as Florida is a far piece from L.A.! Although I appreciate the offer and the occupants of my retirement farm will be sad, I have to pass. I'm trying to stick with flatties now, as room is a bit tight. But as we all know, the problem isn't too many Jeeps; it's not enough room!
Missing Back Issues
I am looking for an old issue that my friend's truck was featured in for a Christmas present. He has lost his copy and I am having difficulty finding out even how to look for one that old. All I know is it was in 1982 and the mag had the article about fearsome foursome Fords. It could have been around May. Please let me know what I can do to find this issue. Thank you and happy holidays.

Wendy, we don't have a database where we can look up stuff like this, and nothing is available on digital archives before 2000. And with our recent move to El Segundo, we have lost the ability to recover archival material on an ongoing basis. If any reader has the information Wendy needs, or a copy of the mag, let us know and we'll try and help
Our Heroes in Uniform
I know y'all get these emails a lot. Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road magazine has gotten me through two tours in Iraq. Y'all do a great job, and I really appreciate the hard work y'all put into your mag. The only problem I have is that every time I read it, there is always a reader in the In Box section who has something critical to say about a previous issue. It's almost like some people just read this magazine to find faults with the staff. I understand if it is a blatant disregard for safety, but I've never seen that in any of the mags I have read. Y'all keep wheeling and doing your thing. It's because of proactive wheelers and magazines like yours that we have trails to wheel on! Thanks for keeping those trails warm for me, and I'll be sure to send some pics of my rig as soon as I get back home!
Thanks, Sarge. This time we only have good letters, like yours. We thank you and your buddies for all you do.
OK, I love the Ultimate Adventure. I was telling my wife that I would love to take part in it when I am able to get my truck to that level. The idea of having an under-$2,000 Ultimate Adventure is great. It would be big. I have worked hard on my rig and doing it mostly on the cheap. The most expensive thing on my truck is my tires. I have about $1,500 in my truck and that includes the purchase price. There are a lot of people out there like me. I am the sole provider for my family. When my wife and I had our son 19 months ago, she gave up her career to raise him. I don't have the money to drop 15, 10, or even 5 thousand bucks into my rig. I wish I could, but when I am able to give either a little extra to my son or do another mod to my truck the choice is easy. I think an under-$2,000 ride would get great support and a ton of readers, not to mention give some great coverage to parks that would love more business.
