Jeep Jamboree Northwoods 2009

My husband and I just got back from the Jeep Jamboree in Wisconsin. What a rush. We took our Patriot. Needless to say we turned a few heads with those there. They thought we were out of our league. Out little goat as I fondly call her surpassed most critics. We rode both days. My husband did make some modifications such as skid plates, tow hooks, rock guards, and a lift kit. Other than that it is original. On top of that this Patriot is not the trail rated one. We had so much fun we will go back. Hope this answers your questions about if it can climb. One other note my husband takes it down to Badlands by us regularly. I will post pictures.

Jeep Jamboree

Here are a few more of our pics from the North woods Jeep Jamboree on July 23-24. Some of them are from the trail course they have (the wife had fun with the vehicle) and the others are from the trails we were on. In the two days we were out there we used the tow strap only a couple of times. Not bad considering some of the obstacles there were. The trial guides and everyone were very pleasant and surprised in how well the little Patriot did. I think many people that attended have a different outlook toward the Patriot as a somewhat trail worthy vehicle. It will never be a serious off roader but can play to some extremes.

Thanks for posting! Maybe I can make it next year.
