For the third year in a row, we have loaded the trailer and made the trip from JC Whitney’s headquarters in LaSalle, Illinois to the Kentucky Convention Center for the Unlimited Off Road Expo. Louisville has become a favorite destination on the JC Whitney tours for a few reasons-the crowd loves off roading in all of its forms-Jeeps, Trucks, Side by Sides, Buggies-you name it the folks here are into it!
We have grown to love Louisville for many reasons, including the Louisville Slugger factory, its proximity to the Corvette plant in Bowling Green plus the longest outdoor go kart track in nearby Shepherdsville and the funky cafes of the East Market. Louisville is full of great surprises.
As always the Adventure 2018 RAM was a big hit with the UORE crowd-If you know a Veteran or Active Service member, Law Enforcement Officer, Fire Fighter/EMS please ask them to sign up to win our Adventure 2018 Truck and other cool prizes in the JC Whitney Pay It Forward Sweepstakes today at https://blog.jcwhitney.com/jc-whitney-pay-it-forward-sweepstakes-2018/
Setting up in the Kentucky Convention Center was easy and Friday morning we were ready for the doors to open. With great deals from Adventure Tour 2018 Presenting Sponsors Aries, Crown, Curt, Powerstop, Rancho, RT Off Road we had something for everyone to upgrade their rig.
Over the Friday and Saturday of the Show we chatted with brand new Jeep families and extended families with as many as eight Jeeps in the garage (that takes a huge garage!) We heard many JC Whitney stories and talked with shoppers who were in the middle of some very interesting projects.
After the show wrapped up Saturday night, the UORE organizers invited all of the vendors and attendees down to 4th Street for a “takeover” and impromptu Jeep Show.
Next stop on the JC Whitney Adventure 2018 Tour is the All Breeds Jeep Show-York, PA July 21-22.
