It’s not a Jeep, but then again, EJS isn’t only for Jeep owners. This fella put on quite a spectacle while rolling numerous times down “Potato Salad Hill.” Fortunately he was wearing his seatbelt and emerged unscathed.
One of the many great things about EJS is that many of the top companies bring their latest and greatest products or vehicle builds out into the public for the first time. Case in point, this amazing concept vehicle made to mimic a 1966 Jeepster. It looks almost too nice to be out on the trail…almost.
This is precisely why things break in Moab.
Wheeling at EJS wouldn’t be nearly as much fun alone as it is with a posse of friends, both old and new. Whether you’re a first timer or an EJS veteran, meeting friendly people from all over the world with a shared passion for off-roading is a big part of what makes EJS so special.
