    Any one within driving distance going to this. www.njjeepinvasion.Com. Not sure how to post a link here.
    I plan on taking the ride Saturday. Just found it last night. Registration ended on June 1st. If any one within driving distance is going. Hit me up. Maybe we can hook up for a hot dog or some thing.

    Looks to be a sweet event.

    Almost forgot. Chris4x4. Maybe a road trip in your future. :bikewhoops:. And bring your drone. Their expecting 800 to 1000 Jeeps. Aerial shots would be awesome.

    Anyway. Love ya too Bro. It's all about living in the moment. Have fun with no regrets.

    It's a Jeep thing.

    Lol

    Trap as in clay birds. Season run September to September. In NJ last registered is at Howell trap club 2nd Sunday in November then it gets too cold for me. Some states shoot year round. Here's a pic from the NJ state shoot two weeks ago. This was the Class Championship singles which is a 100 bird event (4-25 bird rounds bird is a clay)
    This weekend is the Pa state shoot which attracts 700-1000 shooters per event from every State. 2013 I was NJ state champion. Have fun at the Jeep event and take a lot of pics

    Yeah....i dont think so. Went down for Bike Week years ago when I rode. Absolutely a great time. Lol. I have a Brother that lives just outside Tampa. Went down, I live in NJ, a few years ago. My God, the humidity. We took out his HDs. Had a great time. But had to stop for water every 2 miles. Lol. And didn't see one 4x4 trail anywhere. Sorry dude. You won't see me down there anytime soon. :amen:. Unless my Bro needs help.

    Ok...Back to the original post.

    I'm sure you guys are patientlying awaiting my review of this event. I've been to much smaller jeep shows/events than this. And this was a incredible. This event just goes to show how strong this community is. The turnout was much greater than I thought it would be. Considering they were expecting rain on and off. And it turned out to be a pretty nice day. . Those that were lucky to get a beach pass and registered. There was well over 1000 rigs. Not to mention the rigs in the parking lots. Saw licence plates from Maryland, Connecticut, New York, and West Virginia. Just what comes to mind.

    The event. The usual big names. Teraflex, Rugged Ridge, Alpine Audio. Quadratec, Rausch Creek, Lifted and Leved Mag. AEV. Etc. Etc. But honestly. I was some what disappointed with most had to offer. I really had hoped they would offer products at a discounted price. Ive been looking for a few small items. But most just offered freebies, key chains, mini beach buckets, and propagenda. If I spelled that right. So basically. No really discounted deals. But it was still cool.

    Walked around, Checked out some really nice rigs. I can't describe the rigs there. I took pics of some I liked. Talked to a few guys about their rig. Just can't post them all here. Took pics of some of my favorites.

    Will post pics later. Sunburnt and tired.
