This is THE BOOK that every buyer of a 4x4 should be given as soon as he takes possession of his new wheels. This new book should be in your off-road library--JPFreekAdventureMagazine, July 2009--Ever wanted to know the biggest tire you can safely run on any axle? How to calculate spring rates? What the torque yield is for every popular replacement axleshaft? How to re-gear for larger-than-stock rubber? Well, Four Wheeler s Bible, 2nd Edition, by longtime Four Wheeler contributor Jim Allen, answers those questions---and a whole lot more---in authoritative detail. Spanning 256 full-color pages, this Bible has got the gospel on everything from basic off-pavement driving skills, to map reading and orienteering, to advanced winching techniques, with hundreds of mathematical and geometric formulas and diagrams included to increase your wrenching IQ. Whether you ve been wheeling for decades or you re just starting out, there s something of interest in here for every wheeler, with hundreds of photos and illustrations to boot--fourwheeler dot com --I was recently asked to review a new book called "Four Wheeler's Bible", 2nd Edition which is written by Jim Allen and published by Motorbooks. (www.motorbooks.com) As I awaited it's arrival, I was skeptical of what a book like this could teach me, a seasoned 4x4 veteran, and figured I would thumb through it quickly and let it sit on the shelf. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find many tid-bits of great information, excellent photography and very useful reference material. With more than 250 pages comprising 9 chapters, this book would make an excellent addition to any one's collection. If you are new to the sport and want a comprehensive guide then this book is for you. If you've been wheeling since gas was cheap and think you've done it all you can still learn something new. (or at least get validation for things you've always known). All in all this is a great value for the price it is being offered at and I can highly recommend it--jeeperz dot com--Everyone s got a bathroom, a coffee table, a night stand by your bed and The Four-wheelers Bible should be there ready to read. This great book covers it all from axle gears to lifts, bigger tires to first aid kits and so much more. This is truly the Four-wheelers bible! You could spend years reading a monthly 4wd magazine and just as long on the internet and still not get all the info this book has to offer and it s all in one place. The Bible answer s the question s I see newbie s on 4wd websites asking. How big of a tire can I run on my 4WD? , what size lift and what gears do I need to run those big tires? This book has lots of picture s and helpful tips. Plus it s full of great armchair techniques that you can really use. This book should be required reading for anyone who wants to get into the sport of 4wheeling.I get 4wd question s all the time now I can say You know what I would do, You should go out and pick up this book. Other names for this book could have been The Do s and don ts of owning a 4wheel drive vehicle. LOL I loved this book and it s not a read it once and forget it book you will find yourself going back to it for useful info you need to be the four-wheeler you want to be. Kudos to Jim Allen for writing and updating this great book and to Motorbooks workshop for publishing it. Jim is right on the money--Jeeptalk net July 2009--The Four Wheeler's Bible arrived last week while I was at the Land Rover National Rally. I have looked it over and I am VERY impressed. It is thorough, well illustrated, clearly written, and very useful. I will definitely recommend it to all the members of Arizona Land Rover Owners -- --LandRover owners, July, 2009...includes all the basics for getting the most out of your four-wheeler, along with updates on new vehicles, projects, and events -- --Petersen's Four-Wheeler club, Sept, 2009

HASH(0x8ef20f9c) étoiles sur 5 Eye-Popping , Entertaining & Educational 2 mars 2003
Par Charles A. Wells - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I'm telling all my friends about this book. It's the most complete, in-depth book on 4-wheeling I've ever read. It's packed with so many eye-popping color photos, at times, I thought I was actually on the trail. Jim Allen's down-home style had me laughing out loud. Whether you've been 4-wheeling for years or just bought your first SUV, you won't be able to put this book down.
The 224-page book covers everthing you need to know before, during and after 4-wheeling. Topics include: attitudes and ethics, preparation, emergencies, beginner to advanced mechanics, tires, traction, vehicle modifications, tools, equipment, recovery techniques, navigation and much more. In his unique, tongue-in-cheek style, Allen talks about testosterone poisoning, Chop Suey Mud, vehicular hemorrhages, the battle for traction, what's the diff, manhandling, and the winching hall of shame. You'll learn such things as when anti-lock brakes are dangerous, what to do when a spotter holds up two clenched fists, how to safely step over a winch cable and how to avoid embarrassment by having that one piece of equipment every 4x4 should have.
Don't miss this chance to capitalize on Allen's 28 years of 4-wheeling experience. His credentials include time as off-highway-driving instructor and master technician for Land Rover as well as twenty years wrenching his own vehicles. He is an accomplished photographer and has written six books and nearly 1,500 magazine articles on 4-wheeling.

HASH(0x8f07700c) étoiles sur 5 A lot of info, maybe not all useful 29 août 2005
Par W Holder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a good book. It contains a lot of information, although not all of it is useful. This is a great book for someone just getting into four wheeling.

My personal thoughts are that this book should have been Jeep or LandRover specific (Those are the authors obvious favorites) instead of trying to be all encompassing of 4x4's. Basically, there was not enought specific information on any type of area or vehicle, and not enough gereral information. The author seemed stuck somewhere inbetween, making this book not really good for either use.

I did read the book cover to cover, so I guess it couldnt have been that bad either. I gave it four stars because it did have some info and was a pleasant book to read.

HASH(0x8f0772e8) étoiles sur 5 Jim Allen's 4-Wheeler's Bible 31 janvier 2004
Par Evan Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Jim Allen's casual style will keep the seasoned off-roader's turning pages without overwhelming or intimidating the new comers.
The 4-Wheeler's Bible doesn't simply proclaim a technique "right" but explains the reasoning behind it. The vehicle and trail shots are not the typical 4x4 book's fluff, but are excellent tools in demonstrating both good and bad driving techniques. Jim Allen spends as much time documenting and illustrating the common mistakes as he does the proper techniques, in doing so he allows the reader to not only learn from his experience but from other peoples mistakes (I know I'd much rather learn from someone else's crunched bumper or seared drive shaft than my own).
You will not only read the 4-Wheeler's Bible cover to cover, but you'll find yourself referring back to it over and over again.

HASH(0x8f077810) étoiles sur 5 Excellent Reference 1 mai 2009
Par John T. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I purchased this book just as I was beginning to learn how to drive off-road. It really gave me a good handle on how to approach almost every situation I could encounter. Some of the content didn't make a whole lot of sense to me... at first. As I began to practice the techniques I learned in this, I began to reference sections that I didn't quite "get" the first time. It's usefulness continues to evolve as my skills evolve.

This is truly a must have for every off-roader. Great for the beginner, and for the advanced driver. Not only does it cover driving techniques, it also contains detailed information on how to recover your vehicle in any situation with whatever recovery equipment you have on hand. Trail repairs are also covered, which make it useful to have on the trail when something goes wrong. It also helps you prepare for your off road excursion. Equipment selection is very important, and this will help you understand the what and why very well. You will understand the importance of tire selection and what PSI to run at. What suspension and body lifts do for you, and why to select one over the other.

I recommend this book to everyone I see on the trail.

HASH(0x8f077828) étoiles sur 5 Excellent reference for anyone who drives offroad. 9 avril 2007
Par Jeff Berg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Disclaimer: I've met Jim Allen and had some email correspondence with him over the years. He was also the instructor for a good friends Land-Rover School trip in Colorado (approx.) 10 years ago.

I'm an experienced off road driver (4-wheeler?). I bought the book because I knew that with Jim being the author, it would be useful and entertaining and I wanted to read what he had to say. I wasn't wrong. Coinciding with the arrival of this book was the (unexpected) purchase of a new rig--a modern Land Rover to complement my "old school" Series truck. This book definitely helped ease the transition between driving the modern "auto" Discovery and the old manual rig.

I don't believe the purpose of the book is to tell you "what truck to buy" or "how to use a specific truck" and so I feel that the criticisms along those lines somewhat miss the mark. The book is intended to explain the "art and science" of offroad driving in general, to provide background information about the activity, and to outline expectations that you should have--and that others will have of you--while participating. I think it does a spectacular job of doing so. Jim's approach is thoughtful and friendly. The photos are (in many cases) worth the price of the book in and of themselves and the diagrams are clear and useful.

My girlfriend, who is new to the activity, has placed this book on her bedside table and is also finding it very helpful. I think I'll be able to convince her to take the wheel of our new truck soon--much sooner than if she hadn't been able to read "how to" do it herself!

This book has something to offer anyone who is interested in driving offroad and I would consider it a "must" for their bookshelves.
