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.
