wow never knew this took place. Now I want to go. Will be a good consolation since I may end up missing cruising OC.

Might like to attend this if I still have the XJ by then.

I think I brought this up last year, not sure if anyone responded. When I had my XJ down in OC for cruisin' weekend in May a couple years back, I got pulled over twice within 5 hours of being in OC. First by a state trooper, who gave me fix-it tickets for a 3rd brake light out, lifted suspension, and tires sticking out beyond fenders. Hours later, I was cruising around near the inlet at maybe 20mph and got pulled by an OC cop, who hassled me for over 30 minutes. Gave me fines for no doors, bumpers too high, unsafe vehicle equipment and tags that were obstructed by bumper/spare tire. $350 in fines and said he'd tow my jeep if he saw me again. The OC cops were huge *******s to me when I was literally driving under the speed limit and enjoying the weather and other guys are racing and doing burnouts.

I hope this kind of enforcement doesn't happen at Jeep week, but my experience has kept me away from Ocean City with any sort of modded vehicle for quite a while. I should have filed a complaint with the city and fought the fines in court, but didn't want to go back out there for it. I saw them pulling over a few other lifted jeeps as well, but most of them were lifted like 8-10 inches. My XJ has a 5" lift on 35's, but the roof is at about 6' and the hood is no higher than my dad's stock F150. Definitely not going to attend if the city treats me like a criminal for coming to their area for the intended purpose.

Some OC cops are pricks and others are ok with it as long as you're not being stupid. Sack has been in touch and has some good info in regards to doors, ect. Drop him a line about this and I am sure he has some info for ya. Sack@oceancityjeepweek.com

The personal experience I have has been positive overall. I have been down to OC countless times in my doorless, bumperless, mirrorless lifted ZJ without being pulled over once. *knock on wood* I know the law states that "You must have all original safety equipment" Which can be interpreted by each cop to mean something different. One guy could think Doors or mirrors and another could think of it as safety belts and original suspension components. It is a very gray area in regards to the OCPD.

That's what pissed me off the most. A STATE TROOPER pulls me over and gives me a few fix-it tickets for the usual stuff. He hands me those tickets through my missing door (all 4 were off, but I do have a driver's side mirror), tells me to buckle up and be safe. You would think the state trooper would know the vehicle codes better than anyone and would have the higher authority.

I showed the tickets to the ******* OC cops and they just said "guess he didn't feel like doing his job" while handing me a bunch of fines. After giving me all kinds of **** about how my door hinges sticking out could be dangerous to people walking by (obviously not concerned with my safety since there are no doors), he gives me fines, which only make the city money and do nothing to keep it safer. Way to go, prick.

The ******* even questioned me about my H2 Recovery Team sticker. He's like "what's this, some sort of club?" It's a joke, moron. Obviously he had a Hummer and was butthurt. I had reeeeeeally had to hold my mouth back because I know he was waiting for a good reason to tow my jeep.
