Jeep jamboree

Hi, I was thinking about going to a jeep jamboree. Has anyone here that's been to one have an opinion on it? I'm wondering if it's worth spending the money on. My jeep's still stock and I don't really know what I'm doing if I take it off road so I thought this would be a good way to learn. I'm planning on going to the one in Wisconsin if anyones been there, but I'm interested in any experiences. Thanks!

ABSOLUTELY!!!! my hubby and i have attended 6 (i think) jamborees with our jeeps, and we will continue to. we have gone to the pine barrens jamboree in NJ and Paragon in PA (this is no longer offered b/c Paragon Adventure Park closed). It is especially rewarding if you are an offroad newb. we have met many friends at the jamborees that we still wheel with. One of the trail guides at the pine barrens jamboree says this every year, and it is totally true, "i've met some of my best friends at jeep jamborees." i can't say enough good about jeep jamboree. i honestly believe it is totally worth the $, for both the experience and the great time you will have.

I've been on a few Jeep Jamborees. They're great especially if you're new to Jeeping. They will especially cater to less modified Jeeps. Plus it's a great way to four wheel an area you've never been to. They provide the guides, etc. You'll have a great time.

Go to jeep jamboree website, click on 'trails/register' and go down the list. FYI...Killington sold out in record time (last year when registrations opened up in December (?), Bethel sold out second, and Catskills just filled up.
Depending on the location, I think registration is from $150 to $295 or so per person, per trail...and accomodations are NOT PROVIDED...generally the 'listed hotel' is the most expensive in the area because they are 'hosting' the event...so do a search for that area's Chamber of Commerce and you'll find places to stay at probably half the price. Sorry, Jeep Jamboree people...we're on a budget and learned real fast...but as the others say, it's well worth it. We're going on our 6th jamboree (4th time to Killington) this year and can't wait for it! However, you will find (depending on the trip) limited trails open to 'stock' rigs...so maybe plan on investing in at least a winch before you go-opens up a higher level of trail for you to make the $$ worth it!

Should a stock JK Rubicon be able to handle trail ratings through 5? Maybe six?

I want to attend one of these to see what it's like. I've never really been wheeling before and don't want to tear up our new toy.

I see that Tow Hooks are mandatory. I'm assuming the two stock hooks of the JK Rubicon up front and the one rear will suffice?
