Did any of you get a picture of "Miss Jeep Jamboree 2009" from Saturday?

I got a 1/2 picture of her. What a site to behold.

Hey guys. This is Adam. The pics look great. I can’t wait to go back next year. I have been making repairs to my jeep when I can the past week. I think I am going to have to get some kind of fiber glass repair kit for the roof. I got quotes from a couple body shops and a marina and they both estimate a repair close or over what a new roof would cost. Oh well, now I get to tell a story once in a while when somebody asks. Have to work on some good ones.

Hey James, what kind of seat covers did you have again? I am thinking of getting some.

Good luck on the fiberglass. Take lots of pictures and start a thread when you do it to show off how it goes. How about the door, how did that dinger come out?

Jeep newbie here. I've ridden off road motorcycles since I was a kid and have done the San Juan mountains on off road motorcycles three times (gotta love the staircase down into Telluride)

Anyway, I have a 08 JK and absolutely love it. I haven't done much off roading on 4 wheels, though. After driving on a few trails and mud on 4 wheels I've come to the conclusion that my 2 wheel experience doesn't quite translate to 4 wheels.

I'm thinking about trying the jamboree in Crandon in 2010 and would bring my wife and two kids (12, 14), and am wondering if anyone would be willing to give some advise as to what trails would be reasonable for an otherwise stock 4-door JK.

And are there enough beginning/moderate rated trails that would keep me entertained for the event? I'm not afraid of a challenge, but I don't want to be stupid and bend up my JK because 1)I'm don't have much experience and 2)My jeep is stock with all season tires - not mud/terrain tires.

Thanks in advance for all of you help!

You will like the JJ if you're going to get more 4 wheel experience! I learned a lot up in Crandon this past year and am planning to go again next year. When you arrive at the Jamboree, several of the trail guides do tech inspections, and at this point, you decide which trails you would like to tackle in the following days. With their help and advice of course. When I went, I basically said the same thing you just did, and they advised I go with the easy-moderate trails.

Is yours a 2 or 4 door? Especially if its a 2 dr. this will give you some confidence, he made it....



He may have high centered a few times(like right here), but eh...

The trails at the Crandon Jeep Jamboree are very tight and twisty trails, but there are no rocks really. There is a lot of trees to avoid and a good amount of off camber turns on hillsides. But for the most part, with the excellent trail guides, and as long as you avoid the hard/extreme trails, you should be able to avoid damage also. Having the soft top (or no top) on does also help with damage mitigation also. The guy in the pic above, he was unlucky enough to bump into a tree and put a small crack in his hard top the first day out. So, for day 2, not wanting to do more damage, he just left the top in the grassy area behind the casino hotel. And, with the hotel room right there, I just tossed my doors on the bed each day so I could wheel the trail without them.

I would recommend a relocation bracket for the vaccum canister. (black plastic box for emmissions) If I remember the stock location is towards the rear on the driverside. Every four door JK managed to either pull it off or close to it. I'm sure if you surf the JK forums someone can help you out on that. I'm a trail guide for one of the harder trails. We did take a stock four door JK rubicon on our trail. He had a lot of hi center problems, but made it the whole day without a scratch. There are a few easier trails to chose from and more to be added this year. We do have trails with rocks too. Key to avoiding damage is to ask for help (don't be afraid that's what we are there for) and listen to the trailguides. Most of us have been wheeling for years. A CB radio is handy and the standard safety equipment.

Mine's a 4-door, and I'll check that vacuum canister. Thanks for the advise. Keep it coming!
