My 2016 Toledo Jeep fest story

My wife, son and I made the short trip to Toledo Ohio this past saturday to the first Toledo Jeep fest. Was a pretty good time. We ended up missing the parade sadly, but saw everything in the convention center, which was pretty cool in itself. So here are some pictures from the trip.
We finally made it, and found a parking spot!

The red Jeep we parked next too, had some cool Mopar Jeep wheels I thought. Might have to research these for mine.

Anyway when you first walk in, you are greeted by a super cool, optioned out, farm jeep, owned my Omix ada.




Moving on, you find an old Jeep trencher!




behind that is a lifted XJ, that my son wanted to sit in, and found out he couldn't. Very upset 3 year old!

Moving on, one of my favorite YJ models besides the Sahara model, the islander. The factory wheels seemed to be replaced with Moab wheels, nice touch!

Next to it, a super clean CJ5, loved it!

inside shot

looks to be a 258 for the motor

After that we had some concept vehicles, the one I loved out of all of them, I think its called the "shortcut" I think a better name for it would be the JK-5





After that is the much liked, trail cat Jeep, if you have to ask yourself why, I'm sorry..




Absolutely loved the diff covers!

Next is the comanche concept, I got a little video of it, heres some bed pictures of it


Here's another jeep truck concept that was there


cool little touch!

I found it odd, kids were just playing in it

Anyway, next came a cool flat fender


and who could forget this

and the super rare, "Super Jeep"


Next are the runabout Jeeps I'm gonna have when I'm rich (ha!)







And then a pair of some nice Forward Controls



My son really liked the Fire truck Jeeps also

Next up are some cool military Jeeps
Some very early military Jeeps, I might add!


the Military JK that was built not to long ago


Random banner shot they had hung up

More military Jeeps


With a "mutt" mixed in

I have to say M38A1's are about my favorite






I believe these are pretty rare










This Military Jeep has been across the rubicon trail if I remember right, Mark Smith drove it

The famous bullet hole I think

AEV had a booth set up, they brought some of their Jeeps




I could use this Tow truck Jeep!


Another cool one

Here's a couple random shots from the show that I have no idea where they belong





One of the free posters they were handing out

Nice photos, jeep.

The trencher is called a "Jeep-A-Trench". The run abouts are known as "Surrey" jeeps. They are some the rarest and most expensive old jeeps. The JK military looking jeep you have pictured is actually the 75th Salute that was built on the w
line, at the plant, a couple weeks ago.

Where you at the hooters on Monroe? If so you weren't a mile from my house. MY BE next year.

I believe so, it was just down from the Franklin mall. For sure, would love to check out your old Cj!
