Today I would like to introduce to you someone is not only a Jeeper on the trails, but also behind the scenes making sure there are fun off roading events for many to enjoy – Annette Wheatcraft. So without further ado… here is Annette.
Hi I’m Annette – I have been married for 29 years. We have two wonderful daughters and two custom Jeeps. The first Jeep is a 1991 – Red (my Jeep) – called the wax wagon lol. Some of the mods – Dana 44 & Dana 60, 488 gears, sprung over, high steer. Irok Super Swampers 36.
My husband Jeep is a 1994 Wrangler Black. It has most of the same modifications – 44 & 60, sprung over, high steer plus body armor and sits on BFG KM2 37″. Both Jeeps drive every where we go – we have taken both Jeep to Super Lift (5 times in all) – drove to Florida – Windrock plus local spot in Indy – Red Bird, Haspin, Interlake & Badlands.
Our favorite spot to wheel is Super Lift Park in Hot Spring Ark. We belong to 3 off road clubs – Fat Boy Jeepers – Southern Indiana 4X4 & SWAK (Safe wheelers of all kinds) mostly lady club. I am also the Special Event Coordinator for the Indiana Four Wheel Drive Association.
As the Special Event Coordinator of the Indiana Four Wheel Drive Association, we coordinate special runs in the state for fellow members to come out and enjoy. We have 15 different clubs with 450 members. We also help local club with events if they need assistance. We also get vendors to help sponsor yearly events. We do one main event for members at a Ranch in French Lick for a weekend with wheeling – dinner & door prizes. We have two DNR properts in our state Red Bird and Interlake – we help promote. Also IFWDA quartly newsletter. We just recently had an event open to the public that gave Jeep rides around a special course so they can see what it is like – and promote Tread lightly – we are good wheelers and not just a bunch of thugs. Here are some up coming events.
