Midwest Jeepthing held a fabulous event September 18th-20th at SMORR in Seymour, Missouri called Jeep Stock. The weekend was both memorable and fun. It’s definitely an event we’ll be doing again in 2016! There were over 150 Jeeps from all over the place that made the trip. Trailer queens, stockers, daily drivers, crawlers, WK, ZJ, XJ, JK, TJ, CJ, MJ and few unidentifiable models were represented. The events only requirement? It must be a Jeep. This is my kind of event! The trails range in difficulty ratings from 1 to 6. Five and six rated trails are considered extreme and body damage is possible or likely. We spent most of our time on 3, 4 and 5s.  Here are a few photos from the event.

Jumping with a hammer. Seems legit.

Airing down to 8 psi. My new tire deflator is awesome, it’s worth every penny.

Some people brought their campers, RVs or Bus. We preferred our little cozy tent. Doors and tops littered campsites across the park.

With over 150 Jeeps there is bound to be a backup every now and again, even across 940 acres.

This trail ate my lunch the last time I was here. It was good to conquer it with ease this time.

We installed sway bar disconnects on Matt’s JK a couple weekends before the event. I think he was digging his new found articulation.

Matt found that his open differentials were challenged by two ledges at once.

The mall crawler exhaust tips got baptized in the rocks.

We had to pull cable and give Matt’s Jeep a helping hand up the hill.

The rest of the Jeeps in the group had the benefit of some strategically placed rocks at the base of each ledge.

Black Mamba proved to be more than Chris’ rear drive-shaft/u-joint could handle. He would have to do the rest of the trail in front wheel drive. After we winched him past the main obstacle.

He was in good spirits though.

By the way, exhaust pipes and mufflers can be very hot. Just ask Dan. He got a nasty burn while extracting the broken drive shaft.
