    Default 2015 Salem Jeepers Summer Jam

    - The 4th Annual Salem Jeepers Summer Jam -
    https://www.facebook.com/events/910909782306407/

    http://salemjeepers.com/jeepers/summ...2015-pictures/



    This event gets bigger and better every year!
    Over 100 Jeeps on the lot, and there was LOTS of diversity.
    I only got a chance to walk around a couple times, so i didn't get as many pics as I would have liked.
    I also tried a fisheye lens for the camera on my S5. It gave the effect, but it also blurred out some of the fringes of some of the pics.
    You'll see what I'm talking about..... Anyways, enjoy!

    (These showed up the day before the event. Every windshield got one!)






    There were THOUSANDS in donations for the raffle.
    This is just part of it.


    T-shirts, info, and club sign ups in full effect.


    The team at the gate greeting everyone as they came in.


    This was early in the event. Many more Jeeps showed up in the hours after this.




    Just part of "Vendor Row"


    The show is held on the lot of Roberson Motors, a Jeep dealership there in Salem.
    They had lots of take offs, from wheels to trailer hitches, even this collection of tops.....and they were selling everything at DEEP discounts.


    Temps reached into triple digits that day, so extra cold beverages were on hand.


    Concessions too.... these guys KILLED it with the most amazing nachos I've had in a while!

    I saw this one on the fringe.... i hope it has a bright future.
    I love the old Jeepsters.


    There were lots of cool Jeeps and lots of cool booths too.

    These guys are a HUGE presence at every show.






    Talked with this guy for a while... Really nice. Beautiful Jeep, and I think we can look forward to an interview with group he's with in the future:
    Wheelin' With Warriors
    "Dedicated to all who have served this great nation and those that supported them"
    (wish i would have gotten a few better pics)


    I did get this pic of the sticker on his dash though.

    I thought this was a pretty cool install of a light bar:








    Haven't heard of these guys before, but they seem to be a decent alternative to the mainstream.

    It IS a Jeep Thing....


    Thought this was cute....they even gave it its own parking spot.
    Just goes to show that this event welcomes ALL Jeeps, and is very family friendly.

    It was over 100 by the end of the show, and well before then, people were finding shade by any means necessary.


    This was pretty cool...a guy hand made these little wooden jeep replicas...
    Had them out for any toddler that wanted to climb aboard and play.




    Saw this bad ass ZJ... with the most remarkable roof rack.
    I am major jealous of the dimple die work here.






    Offroad trailer were allowed.... of course!


    Another ZJ...with the color choice... I think even Jeep Momma would be proud of this one!


    A line up of XJ's... (there were plenty)


    This guy bought a new light bar and installed it right then and there.

    Some lucky SOB won this in the raffle.


    I thought this was cool, a very well restored RHD scrambler with matching trailer!






    As i was walking around, I was giving away free WARN winch pull lanyards to anyone who asked, and to everyone who had a WARN Winch....

    Saw this guy stage up in front of me for the RTI ramp...
    I was just drawn to his wheels, so I snapped a few.
    for some reason those rims really click with me.




    Of course...had to watch him flex it out:




    All sorts of interesting stickers on all kinds of Jeeps....
    I think this one is the one that stood out the most:


    4Cyl Diesel JK...this thing sounded AWESOME!






    Looked pretty cool too!


    Sportin RCV axles... nice!


    Even took himself a turn on the RTI ramp:

    This is another group i hope to get an interview with for The Jeep Talk Show.






    I liked this light mount... It gave me a few ideas.


    Another well built Wrangler:
    (love the hood sticker)




    Clean XJ on the Ramp:

    This guy showed up again. I got an interview with him last year...
    I think this thing is even more bad ass then it was then.
    We'll be airing that on The Jeep Talk show in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.


    I genuinely think that if he wanted to he could drive completely over the RTI ramp without more than 1 tire leaving the ground at a time. This thing had SERIOUS flex.




















    In case any of you were wondering ....
    HIS RTI SCORE WAS OVER 1400

    Go Ducks!


    This XJ had some pretty sweet mods done to it:




    Check out the exhaust:






    And yes...he flexed quite nicely!

    THIS GUY!
    I've seen this dude at several events over the years, and i guess the story goes like this:
    Over the winter, he and a friend were driving down the road, when they hit an ice patch.
    They lost control of the rig, and ended up rolling.
    No one was seriously hurt, and they were able to walk away from the accident.
    The jeep was towed home, and version 2.0 started.
    The entire roof including the windshield surround was cut off to the doors.
    The A, B, C, and D, pillars were all reinforced, the windshield surround was scavenged from another XJ,
    ...and a full cage was fabbed up and welded in.
    Everything was thought of from gussets, to integrated speaker pods, and even light tabs.
    Almost looks like a JK/XJ love child,


    Did i mention a fully functioning TAIL GATE?!?

    Awesome scenery man. I bet that was a blast to just hang around and talk Jeep all day long. Thanks for sharing the photos!
