Skyjacker Rocks Moab Easter Jeep Safari

Every year, along with thousands of 4x4 enthusiasts, the crew from Skyjacker loads up it's 18-wheeler with jeeps and suspension systems and makes the trek from Louisiana to Moab, Utah, for the red Rock 4-Wheeler Easter Jeep Safari. In addition to its well-built Jeep TJ, Skyjacker unveiled two JKs at the 2010, both of which tacked the trails with ease.

Project Weekend Warrior is outfitted with a Skyjacker 4-inch Value Flex kit and was driven by Dillard DeLaSalle. The JK came up Moab Rim with ease and those 37-inch red label BFG Krawlers made it look effortless.

Official business activities typically monopolize the week for the Skyjacker team. Fortunately, those business activities translate to daily ’wheeling with other industry notables. Each day brings a new trail, including an annual run hosted by Skyjacker. The 2010 Skyjacker run explored the Golden Spike Trail and was led by a member of the Red Rock 4-Wheelers.

After ample ’wheeling opportunities throughout the week, the Skyjacker crew parks its Jeeps at the Spanish Trails Arena for the Safari parts expo. The Skyjacker team sets up a booth there each year to show off its latest wares and meet and greet with old and new customers and vendors.

The second day of riding was the Skyjacker Annual Trail ride and this past year the trail of choice was Golden Spike. To start off the morning the Skyjacker team met at the Spanish Trail Arena by the Skyjacker 18-wheeler and participants got loaded up with breakfast, lunch, and some Skyjacker goodies. The trail leader was Tony from the Red Rock 4-Wheelers.

At the week’s end, Skyjacker loads up its 18-wheeler for the trip back home. Full of great ’wheeling and breathtaking scenery the team will have to wait another year before the next trip. It’s hard work, but somebody has to do it.
