We're you there when they announced the towing of illegally parked jeeps? I'm glad I was done so I could run out and move mine.

There was no where else and I didn't get a ticket. i think next year they need to look for a different location, the cattle herding scene was un fun. We went back up around 7 PM and bought raffle tickets and it wasn'
t bad at all.

We did not like the herding either and the lack of instructions kinda sucked. I think they were overwhelmed. The speedway should be interesting but fun.

I apologize to anyone expecting to meet at Target. I got off to a good start this morning but along the way hit the wall and slowed down. The rest of my group went in without me, too.

The speedway was a breeze compared to the cattle herding at the host hotel. I ran the #2 course without disconnecting and got hung on a peak acouple of the staff rocked me a little and freed me up, other than that a good time was had by all. I have a bunch of pictures and will load them on the picture thread tommorrow. I hope to find some of you on the beach in the AM, I am dark red JKU with a goofy pirate flag on the back.

Need a little help fellow Jeepers.

The obstacle course was a success yesterday! I know because I broke something.

On the level 3 course at one of the full droop maneuvers my passenger side sway bar flipped and when it went back to normal position the tie rod sheared off my sway bar connector. I managed to get it reconnected facing forward but I was going to see if anyone has any suggestions?

I'm going to skip the beach parade and show up at the pool party at noon to see if anyone can lend a hand or has a part on hand.

Do the vendors leave town early? I wish Rock Krawler was still around, maybe they have some spare stuff lying around. I just need to flex out the passenger tire enough to swing the sway back around and to replace the sway bar link.

-Ryan

Really enjoyed the Friday and Saturday I was at Jeep Beach. Will definitely return next year. Unfortunately the Jeep broken windshield curse got me at the 5 month mark. On 95 I purposely stayed back from any trucks and never remember hearing any sort of hit. Came out on Friday evening after attending the host hotel vendor Meet and Greet and there was my cracked windshield. Looks like I took a ball point pen size hit at some point and maybe the heat caused the crack.

Anyhow, I took lots of camera footage and wanted to share a small part of the neat 4 wheel steering Jeep's exhibition at the Speedway on Saturday. Got an upclose look at it at the Meet and Greet on Friday and the thing had more hand levers and toggle switches than a fighter jet but the driver knew what he was doing.

Heres my run through course 2. got lucky to be the first one after lunch break so I didnt have to wait on top of obsticles like others. Wish I had done 3 but my Jeep nearly overheated sitting in line for the course and I was afraid to get it too hot again.



Admit it... you thought I rolled it didnt ya... DIDNT YA!!! lmao my wife took the second video and she forgot that it has to stay flat, oh well we had a blast anyways

Anyone get any great deals at the show? I wasn't looking to buy anything, so didn't compare prices. I considered getting a spider web shade, but never made it back to their tent to see if there was a deal. I got lucky and won a Cam Can fluid kit in the raffle. Have to check it out and see how it works.

Family and I had a blast! Thanks go out to the volunteers and folks that organized it!

I bought a JKINI and just Checked their price. $59.99 @ the show and $60 online. I guess I saved shipping. Bit disappointed they didn't give a deal.

There werent really any GREAT prices on anything except the scratch and dent stuff that various vendors had. otherwise it was just like walking into a retail store. Was hoping to score some cheap recovery straps but they were same prices as always

Was over at vendors row when the Jeep rolled, had a buddy show me his camera pics! Did anyone see the gentleman, with the handicap placard and tag motoring his stock Liberty through the course??? Lol

As to the vendors, I found no real deals other than saving on shipping! All friendly and informative, just no real price breaks.

The volunteers seemed to do a great job of keeping the highway clear and funneling everyone into the speedway. was out there for about 2.5 hours and had a good time!

Got a good deal on a pair of Rigid Dually LEDs for $149 at the 4WD hardware tent.

Hey Thorshammer! did u have your sway bar disconnected?
I went ahead and installed the RC disconnects that I've been sitting on my workbench for the past year, specifically for the obsticle course. For $59 those things rock. Easy to install and no problem to unhook and reconnect.
Course #2 was a blast. Came around to do #3 and they closed the course down for the day before we could get up there again.
