Red Rock Products - 2010 Easter Jeep Safari ProductsPosted in Events on July 1, 2010 0) (
We're the kind of guys who have to drop goldfish in the Oscar tank at the pet store. Sure, that big hungry-looking fish in the tank can clearly swallow the much smaller feeder goldfish, but we want to see it happen. If you're at all like us you really like to see things for yourself, too. The larger 4x4 industry events are typically closed to the public, but not the vender's row at the Moab Easter Jeep Safari. You can walk up, fondle the merchandise, ask questions about the new products, and feed the vendors goldfish-only they might not eat them.
