I may take you up on that because although I'm planning on attending I'll probably be Jeepless.

How about I drive your Wag and YOU co-pilot? Yes, I think that's a much better idea.

Hmmm....since I have a running Jeep these days, maybe I'll try to make it up this year.

Upon reading the registration form, it looks as though all FSJ's are competing for a single 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophy regardless of whether you're stock, modified, or unlimited. I guess they're cutting back in their less populated classes. Doesn't seem too fair?

I don't think PA Jeeps is going to cheese up their show like the Jeff Daniels Show.

You have to circle stock, modified, or unlimited on the entry form. They are still having 3 catagories in each class.

I was wanting to TFI my truck (does run a heck of lot better that way tried it, liked it and was hard going backstock)and stay in the stock class...don't know if thats a major mod. or minor mod. though? They allow only 2 minor mods in the stock class. From their form it looks like lifts, bigger tires, and wild paint schemes makes stuff modified or unlimited. I spoke with Rick Baer about my paint scheme not being original he said it was ok as stock as long as it wasn't wild.

At least figuring out the class for stock is easy for my truck.

Dave, I'm going to park between you and Battlewagon (1st place girls class at Jeff Daniels) as I can use all the symapathy votes I can get.
Maaco laughs at my paint job. We need to find out for sure about the voting.

I did notice that they have FCs in the same class as FSJs so if that yellow FC 170 from the Jeff Daniels Show shows up, we don't stand a chance! I didn't see any FCs at York last year.

I received a reply from Rick Bear at Pa Jeeps. He confirmed my suspicion that class 6, as well as classes 1,11, & 12 will have only three overall trophys to be awarded. Stock, modified, and unlimited will be competing against each other for a single 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophy. The decision was made due to two main factors. Class participation and the poor economy. I don't like it but I guess it could be worse (Jeff Daniels show) and they could award a trophy for 1st place only. This should make things very interesting.

Well doesn't that bite, and here we were hoping we could get the J-Trucks and the Waggy's split so they wouldn't have to compete.

I'll still be there (not sure about the Jeep though).

Wow...sure didn't look that way from the entry form. That really sucks!
That may further drive down FSJ participation, what with having to pay $50 to get to park your rig out by the Ring-O-Dust. Some folks last year were saying that was biggest turn out of FSJs ever.....now they're going to dumb it down. Guess thats what happens when 400 little Jeeps and only 40 "others" show up. Maybe they could give us discount...yeah right.

Kinda makes you feel like the ugly redheaded step child!

PA Jeep show

Right now that show is best place for origional Jeeps.

If they start making more & multile trophies for the TJ's (and less for the vintage iron) that are so polular because.....well.....there is so many of them......

The die hard "old timers" will stop coming, and it'll just be TJ & JK's.


I want to attend this summer, and trying hard to work it into schedule....
If it wasn't a 2 day drive each way, I'd show up with something.

I never understood why there is not a Jeep show in TX, I personally know alot of nice older Jeeps. Guess southerns's take vintage iron for granted & rust belt Jeepers value them? Who knows.

We have water trucks to settle the dust at 4 wheeler mud runs in TX, don't cost but 200 per day.

With all classes of the FSJs lumped together this is the rig that will win this year.


Little jeepers (In my mind) are always gonna vote the highest and shinniest. Lets see where'd I put my extended height jack stands!

He gets my vote ONLY when he follows me on the obstacle course. The Crap magnet is strong with this one.....

Maybe he just needs someone to show how it's done?


Wouldn't be the first time some one said "Well if the girl can do it..."
