We looked forward to our return to York, PA and All Breeds Jeep Show organized by the PA Jeeps Club. Our experience at this show last year was spectacular with many attendees sharing JC Whitney stories from years and Jeep projects prior. Jeepers from all over the East Coast drive to York for the show and the fairgrounds were full of Jeeps and campers who took advantage of the nice weather to scour the vendor are for deals. As part of our Wrench and Ride 2017 Tour we set up the JC Whitney tent and displayed just a sampling of the millions of parts available, highlighting special deals from Wrench and Ride sponsors Aries, Coverking, Crown, Curt, Powerstop and Rancho.
A big surprise was the number of folks we met last year who stopped by to say hi and thank us for coming back to York. We also received a number of compliments on our JKU rear seat recline kit from 2016 event buyers. If you like to road trip your JKU you will find this small and inexpensive kit one of the very best Jeep upgrades available. We have installed them on all of 4 door Wrangler builds-take a look at the kit here: http://www.jcwhitney.com/4wd-pros-rear-seat-recline-kits-for-jeeps/p3093439.jcwx
The obstacle course was a big hit and Jeepers of all skill levels got an opportunity to learn how to negotiate various challenges with help from PA Jeep club spotters. In the JC Whitney tent we fielded questions about the brands and parts we offer at JCWhitney.com and surprised more than a few shoppers who asked about TJ and YJ parts with our depth of parts. Whether replacement, performance or maintenance parts we have them all for virtually any vehicle and the full range of jeeps on the road today.
Another big attraction was the Jeep Show and Shine event held on Saturday and hundreds of Jeeps of all kinds came to York to show off their unique style and capabilities. Walking the field of competitors was one pf the highlights of the event and we were inspired by more than a few of the show Jeeps.
Finally, we reminded everyone that the next stop on the Wrench and Ride tour is Ocean City Jeep Week- Ocean City, Maryland see you there!
