Badlands Off Road Park Race October 17, 2009

The Badlands ORV Park™ is a privately-owned tract of about 800 acres in western Indiana, about 30 minutes south west of Lafayette. It is literally a smorgasbord of off-road riding: sand dunes, pea gravel hills, bottomless mud, the tightest off-camber woods trails, extreme rock crawling, shear drop-offs, hood-deep water, stream crossings, etc. You name it, it’s probably here. On October 17, 2009, the Badlands will be having their next off-roading race so get your Jeep in tip top shape and check it out! Contact Information for Registration can be had by contacting:

Jeep Primer – You Should Know

Jeep Over Rocks

Jeep is an automobile brand owned by Chrysler and has been manufacturing vehicles since the 1940s. Jeeps were originally manufactured for military use, but eventually began being manufactured for the general public. It is also used as a general term for recreational off road vehicles, in fact, it is synonymous with off road recreational driving. Off road driving is often simply called ‘Jeeping.’ There are several different models that have been manufactured over the years, including the Cherokee, the Grand Cherokee, and the Wagoneer. Jeep was the first brand to manufacture SUVs and they still manufacture  new SUV models every year.

JEEP RESCUE – “Jeep’s Biggest Concept Ever”

It’s unclear to us exactly what marketing angle Jeep is taking for the “Rescue”, but it sure looks cool and fun.

JeepRescue Here is how Jeep touts it: “Designed for the most extreme situations and unforgiving conditions, the Jeep® Rescue concept is not only the ultimate type of search and rescue vehicle – it’s the ultimate execution of a Jeep off-road vehicle.”

Jeep Jamborees

Jeep Jamboree

Are off-road adventure weekends that bring together the outdoors, down-to-earth people, and their Jeep 4x4s. These off-road treks have a long tradition dating back to 1953 when 4×4 pioneer Mark A. Smith organized the first ever Jeep Jamboree and voyaged across the Sierra Nevada Mountains by way of the old Rubicon Trail. In 1954, Willys Motors — then manufacturer of Jeep vehicles — became involved with the adventure, and Jeep Jamborees have been an off-road tradition ever since.
