Being an avid four wheeler, I live by my motto of restore, break, rebuild. My latest challenge was rebuilding the many years of abuse and neglect associated with my recent purchase of a Jeep CJ 7. Among many things needed that were purely cosmetic, I decided to get it up and running. My Jeep was equipped with a strong V 8. This is a common swap for some,but it was the selling point for me. The engine was running fair and the drive train was fine. No over heating proved that the coolant system was functioning and it visually seems to be holding tight on all other fluids because there were no puddles on my driveway. The only thing left for inspection was the brake system. A stronger engine means faster acceleration and sometimes the ability to tow, as the CJ’s chassis is rated to tow up to 2,000 lbs. However, the ability of the Jeep’s brake to bring things to a safe halt may be below what it should be. This is a scary issue for me coupled with the fact that I will be putting larger tires and rims on my rig. Most people forget that bigger tires and rims may call for a brakes upgrade.

As a general rule, if the brakes on your Jeep were good before the swap, they will probably adequate after the swap. However, many CJ’s had questionable brakes from the factory. It is up to the individual doing the conversion to ascertain whether or not to upgrade the braking system.This is where I fail. Being a Bronco fan I had no knowledge of Jeep brakes but was willing to learn.

I heard stories of the ultimate bulletproof rebuilds, brake upgrades,substituting Nissan Maxima and 300z brake parts but being a novice to Jeep brake replacement I chose to go with a stock rebuild. Taking pointers from the Jeep gurus on many forums,I set out to rebuild with stock parts and upgrade where my pocket book or my wife would allow. I found a web site called Xtremeterrain.com and began to root through for the much needed parts. After hours of looking and cross referencing I located the parts. The Xtremeterrain website was clear and fully stocked for any option. I surfed and checked out many parts that were labeled with enough info for me to make an intelligent decision and not break the bank.

Days went by as I waited to be assisted by anyone who stopped by my house. I’m not a master mechanic so it did take much longer than I thought but the parts went on without a hitch. Today I kinda smile when people say “hey nice rig” . I put in many hours. Restore,break,rebuild. Jeep life!

Kegan Baker


If you have been following the Featured Jeeper blogs you will see one thing that is shows tons of diversity, the age of Jeep off roading enthusiasts… from the young to the old, one thing that is always the same is the love of it. Today’s Featured Jeeper is Kegan Baker. Read on to get to know this young Jeep enthusiast and catch a glimpse of a little softer side of Jeepers. Just because you are into extreme sports like off-roading doesn’t mean there is not a soft side under all that adrenaline. .

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: A little about you Kegan.
Kegan Baker: Hi, I am 22 years old, single and have a wonderful 4 year old son. I am a Railroad Contractor and reside in Tennessee

XtremeTerrain: What type of Jeep do you run?
Kegan Baker: I run a 1998 Jeep Cherokee “XJ” Limited

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: Favorite spot to off road?
Kegan Baker: Favorite spot is Windrock Offroad Park in Oliver Springs, TN.

XtremeTerrain: Favorite off roading quote?
Kegan Baker: Favorite quote would probably be “this side up” or “Don’t worry that sounds normal.”

XtremeTerrain: If you could have any modifications done, what would they be?
Kegan Baker: If I could have any kind of modification done, I would like a Dana 44’s front and rear with 4.88s and ARB lockers.

XtremeTerrain: What was your best/worse modification if any?
Kegan Baker: Best modifications I have done have been Chromoly shafts in my D30 along with 4.10s and a ARB air locker; Super 35 kit in the rear also with 4.10s and a ARB locker.
Worst mod would be putting lockers and Chromoly shafts in the D30 / 35 instead of just paying a little more for D44s; Warn front bumper with XD9000I winch “old style”; and Warn rock sliders, 4.5 in. Rustys short arm.

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: Do you belong to any off roading organization, if so which one(s)?
Kegan Baker: I’m looking to join several local off-road clubs once my jeeps complete, or at least closer to being finished.

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: How old were you when you first started off roading?
Kegan Baker: First started wheelin at age 14, rode dirt bikes and 4-wheelers until I was 22. It was ten I decided to sell my built 1995 Mustang GT and get into jeeps, and rock crawlin. No regrets!

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: Why you love Jeep Off Roading?
Kegan Baker: I got into Jeeps instead of anything else because of the massive aftermarket support. The fans and the people that are all into jeeps is more like one big family, especially at Jamborees. Everyone helps everyone else, give tips, share modifications, and stories. There is never a dull moment!

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: Any off roading story or incident you would like to share.
Kegan Baker: One off roading incident that comes to mind is when I got stuck between 2 rocks on a local trail. I broke a front axle shaft then my rear driveshaft “all within about 15 seconds.” I had to winch & be towed 2.4 miles back to the trail head where I removed my broken shaft and rear driveshaft and drove back to camp with one wheel drive. Lesson learned? I now carry extra axles and u joints!!

Note to readers from Kegan: The pictures shows I am running BFG a/ts which is NOT my normal tire, I run 33/12.50 Baha claws for wheeling, A/T rest of the time. I drive my jeep 1500+ miles a month and the BFG wear much better on the highway.

Kevin L. Marchant


Today’s Featured Jeeper is none less then Kevin Marchant. Kevin comes to us from Missouri. Yet another family that loves the adventure off Jeep off roading – allow me to turn this over to Kevin as he shares his life and his jeep.

Kevin L. Marchant


Hello, a little about me you say… My name is Kevin L. Marchant. I am 32 yrs old, married (10+yrs) with 2 kids, one of each, 9 and 7 and they both love my TJ. My daughter has always had fun going off roading with me, but this summer she and her brother seemed extremely excited every time they got to go with us. My son has always loved the jeep; pretty sure it’s the only vehicle he remembers me owning.

Kevin L. Marchant


We play in a 02’ TJ with a RE SF 4.5” lift with a 1” body, and motor mount lift, Tom woods supper shorty, my own belly up skid (Rev A we call it.. trust me its UGLY…). Currently running stock 4.0 5 speed combo on stock dana 30/44 combo with 3:73 gears. Our last trip to Flat n Nasty park down south east Mo. we ran on 37” MTR’s wrapped around some nice alloys (no I don’t know who’s, at the time they were borrowed but soon to be mine and the wife and I like the look!)

Kevin L. Marchant


I hope to drop my lift down to a 2.5 and go LCG style with highline and cut rear fenders. I can do this because me and my cuz and some friends build jeep parts; one off’s custom stuff. So I don’t have to shell big bucks and the jeep is all mine so I Fab on the side, teach Design software full time (I am a geek, and a outdoor nut) Our favorite park other than Co. is Disney Ok. It has everything from big obstacles, to tight V-notchs (my personal Fav) some mud, or no mud, (most of the time you have a choice) and Hogan’s camping is pretty sweet. He has got a shop that if you can do it, you can use to fix your carnage.

Kevin L. Marchant


Oh, did I mention my axles are wide open I love hearing “When did you lock that thing up?! … I didn’t… O, Sweet!” Makes me smile. If I could do it over again, I’d of stayed LCG rather than running the Short arm kit with long travel shocks. I want to go 2.5” with a Flat belly, Rough Country. I really like there shocks, and the progressive springs; Outboard the shocks and tons of travel, and provide a very stable feel.

Kevin L. Marchant


A lot of the guys/gals I run with run a wide range of setups and like the LCG movement, as it just makes sense. Mostly I run with a ornery group of pals (best part of wheeling IMO, good peeps all around) most of the time, but we all met through the Kansas City Jeep Club. It’s had its ups and downs but it is on the mend now. I plan on joining again in January. I served as VP, Safety and on the board in the past, and look to be a member again as its restructured now. www.kcjeepclub.org check us/them out! Good peeps for the gross majority, and a good family orientated group as well. Been wheeling with them for about 6 years.

Kevin L. Marchant


I grew up playing in the mud with my sisters Cj7 (she’s got a JK now) To many stories to pick just one. Once I ended up on my side (on flat ground, completely sober) to backed over a Lincoln limo (no body panel or bumper touched it, all tire!) to lifting and off-road before I owned it 7 days.

Hello everyone.. If I could get your attention for a moment, I would really appreciate it. There are just a few things I would like to share with you that you may find of interest or may pertain to you.

First: As I am sure you have noticed by now, we are having featured Jeeper Bios, both male and female Jeepers. Initially I had only intended on posting bios on Wednesday and Friday’s but the response has been great (I hope it continues!!!) so I have been posting them daily in an effort to get caught up. We will be continuing this campaign as long as there is an interest so if you would like to be featured, please let us know by shooting us off a private message on Facebook.

Secondly: There are so many great Jeep off roading clubs and organizations and I sincerely would love to feature them all, as well as Jeep events. But seriously, I cannot keep up with all of it. So, in an effort to make sure those of you who would like to be featured are, whether it be a club you belong to, a founder of, or a upcoming Jeep Event you would like a shout out given to I need to request a favor from you. If you want your Jeep Off Roading Club, Organization, or event featured, please send me all the details of such. Please, Do not just make it “So N So is having an off roading event on such and such date and location” Please give us details, who has organized it, etc.

When sending information about a Club, make sure to include a background about it. People like to know the origins of clubs they are considering joining as well as what they stand for, community involvement, events, etc. Make sure to include contact information.

And in closing, I am sorry, but there is no way possible for us to post about club meetings. There are far too many and no way for us to feasibly handle the volume.

Third and lastly: I would love to thank all of you who have connected us with so many other great Jeep Enthusiasts both on our friends page and our fanpage! We really appreciate it!!!! YOU ROCK!!!!! We hope that you find us a value in your Jeep Off roading and continue to share us with your fellow Jeep friends and family! Thank you again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, for bearing with me though this update, I would like to leave you with this great little clip that was share with us from the Nova Scotia Jeep Club.

Beth Hunnell

As promised, every Wednesday as participants allow, there will be a featured Jeeper blog of a special Female jeeper from the XtremeTerrain fan page. If you would like to participant and become a featured Jeeper please contact us on Facebook and we will get you featured too! Without further ado, allow me to introduce to you Beth Hunnell. Thanks Beth!

“My name is Beth, I am 27 years old and from a small town in the mountains of West Virginia. I live with my boyfriend and 3 kids. I have a house cleaning business called Cleaner Image (check it out, http://cleanerimagehousekeeping.com/Home_Page.html). I am in school to get my associates degree in Foundations of Business.. with the intentions of getting my MBA. When I am not busy working my family and I enjoy anything outdoors. Hiking, camping, a day on the river, and most importantly off roading. My kids haven’t fell in love with it yet, but I am sure they will catch the bug soon enough ;)”

What type of Jeep do you run?
I have a 95 XJ 4.5″ Rough Country Lift and 32’s.. and it’s PINK!!!

Favorite spot to off road?
The Good Evening Ranch in Canvas West Virginia and Swiss which is also in the southern part of the state.

Favorite off roading quote?
JEEP= Just Empty Every Pocket. If I am not wanting to spend money on an upgrade then I am breaking something that needs fixed.

If you could have any modifications done, what would they be?
Haha.. there are to many to list, but if I could have ANY I would get a 6″ Rough Country lift and long arms.. and then of course from there I would need numerous upgrades.

What was your best/worse modification if any?
The best was the simplest.. disconnecting the swaybar!!!

Do you belong to any off roading organization, if so which one(s)?
I am a member of the two best clubs in the area – Jeepin WV and Mountaineer Off Road.

How old were you when you first started off roading?
I always loved lifted Jeeps, but never thought about their off road capabilities until I was 24 or 25.. I had no idea what I was missing!

Why you love Jeep Off Roading?
I prefer to be a driver instead of a passenger, but between me and my boyfriend we have 3 lifted Jeeps (YJ and 2 XJ’s) so if one is broken we have a few spares 😉 It gives me a sense of control and I become fearless. There is nothing like being inches away from a drop and thinking OMG can I make it!!!

Any off roading story or incident you would like to share.
As you can see from the picture I posted my Jeep enjoys being on 3 wheels.. I was waiting to get quick disconnects and had went wheeling many times before my boyfriend finally just disconnected and left it alone. I have quite a few pictures like that and half the time I had no idea I was only driving on 3 wheels.

XtremeTerrain Logo Sticker


You may have noticed that last week I did a featured blog titled “Jeepers Creepers it’s a Female Jeeper ~ Lisa Pence”. Again, I would like to thank Lisa for being my guinea pig in this new venture. What you will start to see on this blog site is featured blogs about XtremeTerrain Fan’s that are die hard Jeepers. I have sent out personal invites to some to get the ball rolling that I felt would make great interviews. What the blogs will consist of is just Jeepers personal stories of off roading along with pictures they want to share with everyone.

On Wednesday’s I will run a Female Jeepers’ bio interview and a Male Jeeper bio interview on Friday’s. In return, those who participate will receive a XtremeTerrain Sticker and a voucher for FREE SHIPPING on their next order from XtremeTerrain.com.

The featured Jeeper’ will also have an opportunity to give a shout out to their favorite Jeep Clubs and Groups they belong to and hopefully this will bring connections for everyone and make for enjoyable fun reading where everyone will be able to relate to one another stories or possibly even pick up tips here and there.

If you are interested in being featured send out a personal message to us on the XtremeTerrain Facebook page and I will get the details to you. Look forward to hearing from you and reading your Jeep stories!

Lisa Pence


Starting today, ever week on Wednesday’s, XtremeTerrain will be featuring a female Jeeper complete with bio and pictures. If you would like be featured, drop a comment here with a link to your Facebook page or drop a comment on the XtremeTerrain Fan Page! And don’t worry guys, the same goes for you, except it will be on featured on Friday’s.

Lisa Pence

“Heres another of me with Oreo…after a day of playing. I’m going to upload a few more for you….also if you want, check out my photos under mudding section for some more”

Without further ado… XtremeTerrain would like to introduce Lisa Pence

Tell us a little about you.. as much or as little as you feel comfortable sharing such as age, marital status, kids, work etc..
Hello! I am Lisa Pence, 25 years old and from Piqua, Ohio. I am single with no kids, and a one of a kind type of girl. Total girly girl but I love getting dirty, I am the Off-road Princess. I do modeling and beauty pageants on the side….that and off-roading normally don’t go hand in hand. I like shopping, going out you name it, but what I LOVE is playing in mud puddles. Its my adrenalin fix, almost like a drug. It is a stress relief, and a lot of fun while I’m at it. I work in Public Safety as a 911 Dispatch Supervisor….which is stressful and very time consuming. The funny thing is, my place of employment has 4 people with Jeep vehicles, and two of us off-road together. I have made several friends along the beaten path….some life long friendships just by having a Jeep. I even have a few female Jeepers’ that I love off-roading with.

What type of Jeep do you run Lisa?
Currently I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Columbia Edition It has a 4 inch lift with 33′ tires and some other mods. Daily driver turned weekend warrior!

Do you have a favorite spot to off road?
Ummmm….its kinda of illegal to go back to where I play 🙂 But its the most fun place ever, at the bend in the road down by the river….a well known spot in our area that everyone goes to, however, no one knows who owns it. Its a little risky, but worth it! I am going to Haspen Acres in September, from what I heard its awesome, may just have a new spot!

Lisa Pence

“Nothin’ like getting a little muddy in the Oreo….go little Jeep go!”

Any favorite off roading quotes?
“Awww crap, who has a winch?” and “This dirty girl cleans up nicely”

If you could have any modifications done, what would they be?
Definitely a bigger lift….Rubicon Express 6 inch on 35′ BFG Mud Terrains with Moto Metal Skull Wheels. Rock sliders and a Smittybilt Rock Crawler Front Bumper with D Rings (My next mod by the way), a winch, Should I go on and on???

What was your best/worse modification if any?
It sounds simple and silly, but I purchased a front vent scoop for the front vent on the hood of my Jeep. Two winters ago, I was driving to work and it was snowing out….the snow on the hood of my Jeep sucked into my Jeep with the heater on, the inside of my Jeep looked like a snow globe!! I thought I would try the scoop, and it works! Ive had them on both of my Jeeps and recommend them to ANY Jeeper! Who wants a snow globe on wheels?

Lisa Pence

“My mom is a Jeeper too! She has owned several since she was younger. Die hard Jeep lover, she said she will never drive anything else!”

How old were you when you first started off roading?
I was 23….I had always wanted a Jeep. My mother has had Jeeps her whole life and my little sister had a Wrangler. I could never figure out driving a stick. I tried and tried to learn with no success. I found a Jeep I wanted, and decided I was going to make myself learn. So I sold my truck and bought the Jeep, and in a week I was doing it. I normally just rode the trails with friends….that weekend after I learned I was blazing the trails. I wish I would have forced myself to learn earlier on….I missed out on some good times.

Why you love Jeep Off Roading Lisa?
FREEDOM! I roll no matter what time of year with the windows down, mud slinging….last year, I was laughing on the trail and hit a huge puddle…got a face full of mud. I like pushing my Jeep to the limits and seeing what it will do. I also love the friends Ive made thru local Jeep events in the area where I live. I have had a blast…..nothing in this world like a Jeeper, the friendliest people on the road. Big Jeep Wave to you!

Lisa Pence

“I was at the gas station where I lived at the time after a weekend of mudding. I was dressed up heading to work, when a guy in a Rubicon pulled up beside me. He leaned over and asked “How did you get so lucky for your boyfriend to let you drive his Jeep?” I politely turned around and told him “This isn’t my boyfriends Jeep, its mine.” He then laughed hysterically, and said “Yeah right, I’ve never seen a girl in heels driving a muddy Jeep before” He then sped away….I only hoped that he saw the two stickers I had on the back of my rig “Offroad Princess” and “This dirty girl cleans up nicely” Maybe someday Ill meet him on the trail!”

Any off roading story or incident you would like to share.
I could go on and on all day on off-road stories. I already told you about my Rubicon Jeeper’ laughing because I drove a muddy Jeep and wore heels! There was also the time that I thought I would be a big shot and park on a huge hill…..I got out and stood on my running board to have a friend snap a picture. Well…my Jeep was in park with the brake on, and rolled backwards in the mud, almost hitting my friends Jeep, all while I’m standing on the running board. It was so scary….but I laughed the whole time! I develop a case of turrets’ syndrome when I get stuck….and I’ve been known to dress like Sasquatch when its cold and snowy off-roading…..I had on so many layers that I couldn’t get in or out of my Jeep. Jeepers improvise while off-roading, including females. I’ve had my fair share of days where I’ve had to pee in the woods, or fell in the mud. Girls do it like the boys do….and we can hang with them too. Females aren’t just passengers….we drive our own rigs…and blaze our own trails!

“Last but not least….my current Jeep. After having my 01 Sahara, I was a Jeeper tried and true!! Just last week, an older guy pulled up beside me in a parking lot…..after I got out, he laughed and said “Wow, its a real kick in the manhood when a chic has a bigger Jeep than mine” I just laughed and said “Yep, guess it would be” He gets a bigger Jeep wave than anyone when I pass him in town now.”
