Decent Books? Magazines?

So with Winter coming to a close (or I'll call it Falring since it hardly qualified as Winter) I'm starting to get excited...

I'm a book person and thought I'd look around for some off-roading books... Has anyone read these? They are a little older so just looking for any opinions on if they are still relevant or outdated:

http://www.amazon.com/4-Wheel-Freedo...8553484&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.com/Four-Wheelers-...8553484&sr=1-4

http://www.amazon.com/Jeep-Performan..._bxgy_b_text_c

Or, anyone have any other recommendations?

Otherwise, anyone have any good recommendations on magazine? I have a subscription to JP, and I've looked at some like Offroading. But they all look very heavy into, what I'll call, Monster-Jeeps. In a magazine, I'd like to find something more about the outdoors aspect of our hobby than the machines... Trail reviews, great spots to go, good jeepcation trips... That kind of thing...

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Ryan

WF member Jimbox turned me onto this:

Overland Journal | The Publication for Environmentally Responsible, Worldwide Vehicle-Supported Expedition and Adventure Travel

Not exclusively Jeeps, but does have content regarding 4x4 trips, trails, equipment, etc.

I just recently ordered a subscription.

One side note about that book though is that i believe it came out around 06 so not too much info on the jk's but plenty on tj's and older. Covers all jeeps too not just wranglers.

Interesting, I hadn't found that one. I looked over some of their sample articles... Most of them were about traveling internationally though, like to Africa... Sounds fun, but I don't think I'll be shipping my JK over there anytime soon...

Do they talk about trails around the US? Or just like month-long treks on where the closest cell tower is a few countries away?

I'm not sure...like I said, I just recently ordered a subscription. First issue I'll get is April. My primary interest is in some of the equipment they feature, but I'd be surprised if they don't have at least some U.S. excursions in there.
