Hi Gord,

I have "Jeep" by Jim Allen. The book goes into the history of Jeep and touches on all the models...but is not FSJ focused.

BTW, where in Ontario are you?

I have the Jeep Wagoneer Performance Portfolio, a pretty interesting book. Another one about Jeep, is Story of Jeep Patrick Foster.

Agreed, the Story of Jeep by Patrick Foster is great. It covers all Jeeps but has plenty of FSJ info.

I just got a book of re-printed old magazine road test articles on J-trucks by the Brooklands Books company. It's cool if you want to read about what the magazines thought about FSJs back in the day but it's only about that - not a history book.

I usually buy Performance Portfolios through qbookshop.com. They are fast and look after their customers. Remember Zenith and Classic Motorbooks in the 90s-80s and Motorbooks in the 00s? Same outfit.

That Perf Portfolio is worth having - it's on my book shelf with the other 30 or so portfolios I've collected over the years.

"Jeep collector's library" from Jim Allen is a good book for sure

I have a book focused on FSJ, but its actually only a collection of vintage press articles, i guess its the performance portfolio already mentioned

Also see the Jeep Bible, but I think it primarily covers the baby Jeeps.

Jeep Wagoneer Performance Portfolio 1963-1991 complied by RM Clarke

Decent enough read, basically a compliation of various magazine articles about Full Size Jeeps throughout the years. Got mine as a gift so not sure where to buy one.
