Morgan from Mammoth Lakes, CA: “I love how I can get to these incredible places with my Jeep without any trouble at all!“
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
-Ferris Bueller c.1986
So Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was on TV last night (again) and of course I had to watch it (again). It was hilarious as usual, but when we got to the part with the famous quote listed above, I came to a certain realization. How is it Mid-August already? I’d better slow this Summer down in a hurry!
That’s where our newest and one of the most fun products we’ve ever carried comes in; The Trek Light Go Anywhere Hammock . Sharing the same love of the outdoors and go anywhere spirit as Jeep, this awesome and affordable hammock is a great way to squeeze a little more fun out of your time in the wilderness and will help you slow life down just a little bit.
Measuring at a HUGE 6’5″ wide and holding up to 400lbs., the Trek Light Double Hammock (combined with the Go Anywhere Rope Kit) easily ties up between two Jeeps, between your Jeep’s Rollbar and a nearby tree, or even between two trees at your campsite. The entire system compress into an included carrying pouch and weighs in at a super light 20 ounces, so there is no need to worry about it taking up too much space in your Jeep or backpack. It also makes a great gift for the Jeeper, Hiker, Hunter or Outdoorsman in your life!
Interesting choice of campsites, fellas…
Mark your calenders! On August 12th 2012, our friends from Adirondack Jeeps and Saratoga Chrysler Jeep Dodge will be putting on their 3rd annual All-Breeds Jeep Show from 9am to 1pm. If you’re a Jeeper or lover of Jeeps in Upstate NY, Vermont, or Western Mass, make it a point to get to this one. It’s a fun, family friendly event with trail rides, all kinds of awesome Jeeps, an RTI ramp, a raffle with some incredible Jeep prizes (including some cool stuff from us), food and fun. This isn’t just a fun event, but proceeds will benefit The Sugar Free Gang and The Wait House which are great causes and help young people in our area immensely. Hope to see you all there!

The Jeep® brand is bringing the “Jeep Rocks & Road Tour,” an on- and off-road driving experience, to consumers attending the 2010 Syracuse Nationals Car Show, July 16-18 at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse, N.Y.
The tour provides the ultimate on- and off-road driving test for attendees at air shows and auto shows, fairs and festivals all over the country. The program is free to those who pre-register at www.jeep.com/rocksandroadtour and bring a copy of their confirmation receipt. Typically generating an enthusiastic response, early registration is highly encouraged for those interested in attending in order to ensure a quick and seamless entry. The “Jeep Rocks & Road Tour” is open to the public and features obstacle courses that demonstrate Jeep Trail Rated® capabilities. Current Jeep owners are extended the opportunity to drive their own vehicle on a Jeep Owner’s Playground. The entire Jeep brand lineup, including the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, will be on site to test drive.
“We have created the ‘Jeep Rocks & Road Tour’ to provide our current and potential customers with an adventurous experience that is exclusive to the Jeep brand,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “We are partnering with various venues across the country to reach out to our loyal Jeep consumers, while branching out to those with new interest in the one-of-a-kind Jeep brand. This tour provides an ideal venue to experience the countless features and legendary capability offered in the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, as well as the other vehicles in the Jeep brand family.”
The “Jeep Rocks & Road Tour” courses consist of several obstacles that simulate some of the rigorous testing that Jeep vehicles endure before customers get behind the wheel. Courses include elements that demonstrate the Trail Rated capabilities of Jeep vehicles for articulation, ground clearance, maneuverability and traction.
Jeep brand vehicles will be on hand for participants to drive over a variety of surfaces. Attendees will learn to navigate off-road challenges, such as steep grades, rocky trails and log crossings, under the guidance of a trained instructor.
The “Jeep Rocks & Road Tour” features a number of interactive activities, including informative product displays. The family-friendly event offers children the opportunity to take part in the Jeep brand experience as well. Jeep kids can drive “Power Wheels” mini-Jeep vehicles, climb a rock wall and more.
The tour travels cross-country as it kicks off in Syracuse on July 16 and concludes in Fort Worth, Texas, on Oct. 31.
