That's a bummer. I used to enjoy reading that too, when I still had my jeep.

They are converting to web based. I called them and told them I wasn't going to pay for reading stuff on line since there is so much out there for free. They sent me a refund for the remainder of my subscription.

Diesel power is doing the same. I canceled my subscription as well.

When we go up north or when I sit on the patio (rare occasion I have down time at home) I like to read a magazine or the news paper. NOT a tablet... Sad.

I was just thinking something very similar. Even though I do a lot of reading/research on the tablet or phone, there are some things that are just more enjoyable to read in an actual magazine format.

Not having a printed magazine and being forced to look at a screen more in a day isn't my cup of tea either so I will cancel my subscription as well. However if you have kept a year or two of old issues you can just reread one randomly each month and it would be like reading a new issue. Bolt on lift kit install, bolt on accessory install, tire review, same product from a different company released, new year same Jeep event, etc.

I cancelled mine awhile back even though I loved it. The renewal scam they seemed to have going annoyed me. I would get renewal reminders less than 2 or three months after I renewed. It was like they hoped I would forget I sent the check already.

The one gal that worked, freelance photographer for JP Magazine, Traci Clark is trying to put something together, were hoping this will turn into a magazine of sorts. Shes working on it and I believe others are involved too.
Use the Facebook search engine looking in Facebook groups. Its called Gone-Gpn (Gone-Gpn.com)
So far theres over a 1000 followers in the group. Join the group and stay tuned as they grow and hopefully turn into a jeep magazine.

Thanks for posting this. I, too, appreciate a hard copy of a magazine over the online version.
Hopefully Traci can pull it off.

JPFreek stopped their digital mag too.

I just like print and it showing up, digital goes to my inbox, and gets buried then life happens and I never read it.
