It’s that time of year again, and the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah is upon us. As this newsletter is released, the rugged terrain of Moab is adorned with off-road vehicles of all types ending their week long adventure. For those unfamiliar with the event, Easter Jeep started in the 1960’s as a Jeep only event to kick off the off-roading season for the year, and has now grown to include thousands of (mostly) Jeeps as an all out adventure for off-road enthusiasts. This event welcomes anyone to come, from the weekend off-roader, to the hard core crowd, to vendors, and even Jeep themselves (who has been known to unveil next model year vehicles in Moab)!
We at Power Products Unlimited have had the fortune of attending this event the last two years where we’ve been able to put some of our newly built vehicles to the test, and simply see old friends, as well as make new ones. At last year’s event, we had recently completed our Jeep JK running a 4BT Cummins featured at many other events throughout the year. This year we also brought our Ford Raptor SD project (you can read about this build later in the newsletter) to the event, and this is no trailer queen that sits on the sidelines. Not only did this truck, sporting a complete Carli Coil-Over King 2.5 Dual Bypass Suspension System, spend a lot of time playing on the slippery rocks with the MUCH smaller Jeeps, but it hauled an enormous camper all of the way to the event! This is truly a “Swiss Army Knife” truck that has plenty of tricks up its sleeves.
All in all, as the event winds down, it is very evident as to why Easter Jeep Safari is one of the biggest off-road events of the year and why its continued success will only grow in the years to come.
We will have more photos and write-ups on the event in the coming weeks.
