As you can see on our front cover, we were finally
able to chase down Rand Green long enough to get
some great shots of his Rescue Green JK with a feature
story starting on page 8. And it is an inspiring story as
his love affair with his JK helped him to rehabilitate from
Lyme's Disease, build his relationship with his sons, and
develop his fabrication skills.
Speaking of inspiring stories, check out page 16 and
read how the 4 Wheel Parts store in West Palm Beach,
Florida put together an amazing event to honor Wounded
Warriors and Stand Down House that helps in rehabilitating

Heading into May, the spring off-roading season is shaping
up quite nicely with lots of action. Last month, 4 Wheel
Parts and sister companies, Pro Comp, Smittybilt, G2, and
Rubicon Express were out in force in Moab at the Easter
Jeep Safari. Team 4 Wheel Parts ran in the Lucas Oil Off
Road Racing series that kicked off March 31 at Firebird
Raceway in Chandler, Arizona.
This month you should head south to Dallas, Texas for
the 4 Wheel Parts Truck & Jeep Fest on May 19-20 at the
Market Hall. In June, our biggest Truck & Jeep Fest event
of the series takes place on the 9th and 10th at the Ontario
Convention Center in Ontario, California. Both events will
be offering great deals on parts and accessories.
Also, in May, I will be joining my fellow SEMA board members
in Washington, DC to meet with members of Congress
on very important issues to our sport such as land use in
areas such as Johnson Valley. Be sure to continue your support
of this most important off-road vehicle recreational area
by finding out what you can do at: savethehammers.org.
Be sure to check out this issue for the great items in the
Engine Performance Buyer's Guide to help you squeeze as
much fuel economy out of your vehicle as possible.
As always, thank you for your business with 4 Wheel Parts
and enjoy this month's Off-Road Adventures magazine.
