When you get there you will know a lot of people.

We expect over 500 Jeeps this year over the 2 days......

There is something for bone stock to bet you can't get through there in one piece.

Go to the Ocala Jeep Club web site and look at last years pictures....

See you there.

Hope you had fun, we live in Ocala and we STILL didn't make it out. Had too much going on! What did you think of it?

I've heard that it's a little sparse, that's why we weren't too adamant about making it out that and we had to set up the Navy vendor tent at the Pumpkin Run which was this weekend as well. We're planning in going to Jeep Beach next year, though!

More vendors? Who cares? I think the final count was 1300+ Jeeps, and most had people with them. If the vendors don't come, that's their problem.

I had way more fun riding the trail 4 or 5 times instead of walking around all day looking at the same stuff, at the same discount, at every event.

Plus, it really beats sitting in the sun all day waiting for a chance to go once, maybe twice on the obstacle course (i.e. Jeepbeach). Here, you could hang out for a while, then go for a ride whenever you felt like it.

I plan on coming back next year, and bringing the kid. The family friendly atmosphere was another plus.

I like more vendors cause seeing how I am building my jeep as I go when I see something I want id like to buy it then not get home order it and wait a week I never said I didnt like it or wouldnt go back so dont jump down my throat for having an opinion, especially after I drove 5 hrs to go im sure there werent many any farther than me

Monster, that was not meant to come across as jumping down your throat at all.
Have you been to a 4WD parts Truck and Jeep Fest like they had recently in Orlando? That is a great place to put your hands on products as that is the focus of the event, and plenty of vendors show up.

Personally, I think this event has a feel more along the lines of celebrating the Jeep by participating, and having some fun. I happen to like that, that's all.

Oh yeah, I got a picture of a guy with Alaska tags BTW

Yea well there was one that stayed where we were with new york tags but he looked military so no telling where they were from for sure but no this was my wife and I first jeep event period dont get me wrong I dont want anynof what they did to change just to add more vendors and as the years go on they will come but if you had folks from half the companies out there with their products you could outfit your jeep easily just like my wife was in the market for a shade top for her jku there were 2 companies spider web shade and gearshade out there, we went and saw both shades several times until she decided on the gearshade, the zipper pockets and thicker material made her choose them thats all im saying when you can see things and several options you want you can compare and buy not look at pics online, most folks cant make it to a bunch of big events and this one and jeep beach will be the only 2 within 5hrs away so we have to make the most of it, makes it nice for us to see something were in the market for on a jeep and then go buy it if we can then or know what to order later
