PRESIDENT'SCORNER Winter is just around the corner (or already here depending on where you live). That means the holidays are upon us. This month's Off-Road Adventures includes our 33 page Holiday Gift Guide on the backside of the magazine (just flip it over and dive in)! The Gift Guide is packed full of great products for your favorite off-roader. We have gift ideas for all budgets starting with $50, $150, and under $250.

I want to thank our Off-Road Adventures staff for keeping the Operation Light Sabre program going strong. We are getting more requests every week from troops to supply much needed lights so that they can travel safely at night and seek out IEDs (hidden explosives, the biggest cause of fatalities to our troops). I have pledged my race winnings this season to the cause and we are launching a push at the next Lucas Oil Off-Road race which will include some TV time to promote this cause and seek out donations. Please visit www.4wheelparts.com/info/bravo.aspx and make a small donation this holiday season. Let's not forget the sacrifices our troops are making for our freedoms and do our part to help keep them as safe as possible. Enjoy this month's Off-Road Adventures magazine. We produce this magazine monthly as a way of thanking our customers for their business. We send it FREE to our customers for 1 year after purchase. If you want to keep getting it beyond that, please let us know via the internet at www.offroadadventures.com/subscription. We also offer a digital version of this magazine, if you prefer that. The magazine is strongly supported by many of the best manufacturers in the off-road industry, so please support those advertisers who help make this FREE magazine possible.

    LETTERS&STUFF LIGHT 'EM IF YOU GOT 'EM Ever so slowly, I'm getting my 2008 FJ Cruiser transformed into the off-road "family wagon" I've always envisioned. I've added Body Armor rock rails, an aftermarket roof rack and light cage, and done a little hitch work. My next project is an N-Fab front bumper and a mild lift. My latest addition though was roof lights. The guys at your store in Riverside, California hooked me up with these fantastic Lightforce 170 Strykers, for a combined output of 1,400,000 candela. I work close to Santa Ana, CA so had the gents at your store there install the wiring and switches, after my wife persuaded me to let professionals do it. The install looks real nice (and no holes drilled through the body), but best of all, we can really light up the night! Thanks 4 Wheel Parts. Tim Landosky SHOW & TELL TJ I would love to show my TJ off in your magazine. I have been reading it since I have received it free after ordering parts from 4WheelParts.com. I have been building her since 2005 and she is my pride and joy. She now has a 4" Long Arm, 1" body lift, 35x13.50x15 Toyo MTs, HPD30, Ford 8.8 with 4.88s, Smittybilt rocker rails, Smittybilt XRC 8 Winch, full exhaust, LED Tail lights, custom audio system, custom front and rear bumpers, Undercover Fabworks skidplate, Currie HD steering, Bushwacker flares, KC Daylighters, and the list goes on. All she needs is lockers to be a complete off-road machine. If any companies would like to donate a set, I won't say no! Thanks again for putting out a great magazine. Patrick Murphy p Twisted Steel Headers 48-46202 The new Twisted Steel header combines aFe Power's sophisticated engineering techniques with modern production processes allowing this header to produce 9hp and 10lbs. x ft. torque over the factory manifold. Constructed of mandrel-bent, TIG-Welded 409 stainless steel and utilizing mitered collectors and ½" flanges, the Twisted Steel header is as tough as your Jeep TJ.
