The 4Wheel Jamboree Nationals continue to be a stellar event series, bringing together a diverse group of trucks, Jeeps, and other 4×4 fanatics for a weekend of fun. The events are held throughout the warmer months in Bloomsburg, PA, Lima, OH and Indianapolis, IN. We’ve been attending these events for nearly 2 decades and although the event and the vehicles have changed over the years, it continues to be one hell of a good time. Held mid-September each year, the Indy 4Wheel Jamboree continues to be our favorite of the series. While we love them all, the people, the rides, and activities, the Indy show boasts the largest attendance with more than 4500 vehicles and 10,000 people in attendance, a great layout for activities and vendors, and a short 3.5 hour haul from our home office in Michigan.
This year continued to impress us with good weather for majority of the 3-day weekend, a huge turnout and great support from our local Indianapolis distributor, Elite Auto Image. The fairgrounds were filled with trucks taking part in the show-n-shine contest, tough truck racing, burnout competition, mud drags, and those that came to cruise around and show off their rides. FOX set up an offroad obstacle course for participants to try out and man headed to the grand stands to watch the monster truck action. The BDS booth was slammed all weekend long as people came by to check out the custom rides and take advantage of our show-only special offers. Along with Project Slate, we had Project Sinister on display all weekend long as well as other bad ass BDS equipped rides. The show runs Friday through Sunday, with various activities scheduled throughout the weekend. While Saturday continues to be the busiest day typically, Sunday brought quite a crowd to take part in the many activities highlighted by the XDP monster truck backflipping for the crowd and the Miss 4Wheel Jamboree bikini contest. A big thanks once again to everyone that made it out to the event, we had a blast! Check out some of the photos from the weekend below and to see more head on over to the BDS Facebook page.
