4Wheel Drive Hardware Jamboree
The 2010 4Wheel Drive Hardware Jamboree was a huge success this year and I just wanted to thank everyone that came out. We’ll show everyone else what they missed.
We arrived early to finish preparing for the event and to help the vendors with their displays and parking. The parking lot was filled with customers and friends for almost the entire day.
5PM – Bushwacker Jeep Parade
The parade took over the small town of Columbiana, Ohio. We had an estimated 240-250 Jeeps in the parade. This was our largest Jeep parade ever. Now we’re wondering where we’ll put the extra Jeeps in the lineup next year!
After the parade, all the Jeeps returned back to our showroom for a small car cruise, music, and giveaways. The vendors opened their displays early, allowing spectators to get a taste of what the next day would bring.
July 24th – Jamboree Day!
The Jamboree was packed this year with 2,400 guests and over 800 Jeeps. What is really scary is that they were all there by the time I showed up at 7am. I wonder what time they had to wake up! The parking lot was nearly full mid-morning and completely overfilled by noon. The day was long, hot, and very humid but that didn’t seem to deter the crowd from showing up. The showroom was full of customers getting the best deals that could be found. Chances are if you showed up with a stock Jeep, you did not leave with one. Activities could be found everywhere. The four main events kept the crowds and drivers entertained all day.
The Superlift Ramp Travel Index (RTI) competition allowed drivers to flex their suspensions and see who had the greatest suspension travel.
