It seems to be tradition now. Each Spring thousands of Jeepers make the journey from around the country and beyond to converge on the quiet town of Moab, UT for a weeklong event that combines trail rides, parties, a 2-day vendor show and raffling off of more than $250,000 in aftermarket goodies. With daily trail rides and events every night, Easter Jeep Safari has become a bucket list event, that thousands check off each year again and again.
BDS Suspension made the trip out to run trails, test new products and chat with customers at the 2-day vendor show. With the rigs loaded BDS made the long haul from Michigan to the red rocks of Moab, UT with Project Slate our 2013 Ram 3500 Diesel, Project KJ, our 2005 Liberty CRD, and the BDS Ram 2500 Diesel. The week in Moab was amazing. From catching up with old friends and making new ones out on the trail, EJS continues to be an amazing event bringing together OEs and aftermarket manufacturers, media reps and Jeep enthusiasts. The event is organized and hosted by the Red Rock 4Wheelers and continues to grow in size each year. BDS has been attending for 5 years now and every year the event seems to get better. While the terrain may not change much from year to year, the numerous trails and countless miles of off-pavement paradise is just what you need to break the cold coming out of a long winter like this past one. We met up with companies and customers alike to run Poison Spider, Behind the Rocks, Hell Revenge, 7Mile Rim, Gold Bar Rim, Steel Bender, Area BFE and a few other trails by day and held a weeklong free pint special at the Moab Brewery to entertain by night.
The BDS crew went hard all week long, on vendor trail rides, the annual Crawl Mag Reader’s Ride, several photoshoots, the annual Fullsize Invasion in the BDS Ram 2500, and a 2-day vendor show where we had a chance to talk with Jeepers and see many of our customers. Following the show we hit the road for Florida with only 3 days to make it for the start of Jeep Beach. Check out some of the photos from out week in Moab and follow along on social media sites for daily updates from events.
Easter Jeep Safari continues to impress each year. With next year marking the 50th Anniversary you can bet the Red Rock 4Wheelers have big plans for the event. BDS is excited to make it back next year and hope to see you there. For more on the event and to keep up with plans head to Red Rock 4Wheelers.
