The Easter Jeep Safari, which takes place in Moab, Utah, from March 23-31, gathers Jeep and off-road enthusiasts to the area for a number of trail runs and off-road events throughout the week. For years Jeep and Mopar have teamed up to create unique concept vehicles for the event, which they show off to the media at an invite-only gathering. Off-Road.com will be on hand to check out the new vehicles and even take them for a short spin to report how they feel.
MOAB, UT (March 13, 2013) — Moab Diner, with help from RCH Designs, has partnered up with several off-road sponsors again this year to sell Moab t-shirts with a built-in support for The BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC). The money raised from the sale of these shirts will help keep our trails in Moab, Utah open. If you are interested in supporting BRC and the Moab trails, you only have until March 18th to buy your t-shirt online. Even after that, however, you can still swing by the Moab Diner and get your t-shirt there, and have a great meal at the same time!
BRC extends a huge thank you to our Moab Diner friends, James Butterfield (General Manager) and Geoff Thomas (owner). They believe in our trails and the fun our off-road sports bring to the community.
Leaked photos last week prompted Jeep to at least reveal images of the 2014 Cherokee, which hit the news cycle while we were in Texas testing the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The all-new design of the popular Jeep Cherokee platform is certainly unique.
The new 2014 Cherokee will be filling the spot of the Liberty, which will not return to the company’s lineup in 2014. It does feature styling of the Grand Cherokee and Compass, but its size and smaller headlights also put it more in line to the Nissan Juke and vehicles of that size.
The members and families of Tierra Del Sol would like to invite you to our 51st TDS Desert Safari. Reserve March 1st, 2nd and 3rd and come out and experience the magic and splendor of southern California’s finest wheeling.
This year will be another epic event with fantastic vendors onsite, an awesome trail, the best raffle on the planet, and yes after last’s years outrageous fireworks show….we are going to do it again.
Suwanee, Ga. – Following feedback from Jeep owners online, Omix-ADA, a leading manufacturer of high-quality Jeep accessories, today announced the availability of the new, patent pending Rugged Ridge Modular XHD Snorkel System for two and four-door Jeep Wrangler JK models from 2007-2011 with the 3.8L engine.
The new Modular XHD Snorkel System from Rugged Ridge is available in easily interchangeable high and low mounts and relocates the vulnerable stock air intake through an internal duct system just below the windshield. This new design provides optimum performance and protection as well as a great, integrated look. Installation requires only minor modifications to the internal fender flange and avoids the major cutting that other kits may require.
Jeepspeed racers took time out from battling on the racecourse to honor the top finishers in their series. The General Tire Jeepspeed Challenge presented by ATX Series Wheels is a desert race championship for 6 cylinder Jeep SUVs with limited modifications and the General Tire Jeepspeed Cup presented by ATX Series Wheels is an open class for Jeep, Dodge, & Mopar SUVs/Trucks.
After a highly competitive season that came down to the last race of the series, it was nice to get everyone together to share a meal, a few stories and acknowledge those who achieved top results. The crowd contained Jeepspeed newcomers Dustin Hoffman and Brandon Berge as well as seasoned veterans like Billy Bunch and Eric Heiden. A diverse group of competitors who all share the same desire, to race in a lower cost series that pits the race truck that they build themselves against each other. Jeepspeed is unique because it does not require you to purchase a “spec” vehicle to compete. Jeepspeed racers build their own vehicles to their own design as long as it conforms to the rules. Jeepspeed success depends on great driving in the dirt but also the innovative engineering and fabrication skills that have traditionally set desert racing apart from all others. These are all well-rounded racers who earned their trophies by using many different skills.
“At Mopar, we’re empowering our customers to put even more power, capability and
customization into their vehicles,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “We’ll continue to give our enthusiastsoptimal performance and appearance packages on the street, at the track and on the trail.”
The first place winner will take home a Superwinch Tiger Shark 9500, while the second place winner will have the opportunity to select any Jeep Jamboree from the 2013 lineup! Either of these prizes would make a great Christmas gift!
The contest ends November 30th and the winners will be announced before December 8th. Good luck!
