One might think the same Jeep show year after year would get old or boring, but we find ourselves back in York, Pennsylvania, at the Expo Center year after year for the PA All Breeds Jeep Show and are never disappointed. We arrived at the show to find people lining up to get in with stock, built, ugly, pretty, common, and rare Jeeps of all kinds that earned the name of All Breeds.

A big crowd formed to watch the yearly safety and recovery demonstration. Ron Allen has been doing the demonstrations for a number of years and the spectators look forward to this part of the show. This year, Ron was supported by Kyle Buchter and Bruce Shallis of Rausch Creek Off-Road Park.

As in previous years, the PA Jeep Club put together an obstacle course for participants to play around on. Spectators watched with excitement as the first-time off-roaders as well as seasoned pros crossed the logs, rocks, and hill climbs. Show trophies were handed out for all classes. as well as for the articulation ramp and the slow crawl competition. Over 5,000 spectators poured in throughout the day to ogle over 695 Jeeps, the latest and greatest from the off-road vendors, and fair-like food vendors. Let's not forget the 36 used parts swap meet booths that drew a crowd of Jeep Junkies on their own. The weekend finished with the trophy winners' parade and a huge raffle for off-road merchandise where over 14,000 tickets were sold.

Chuck Dice of York, Pennsylvania, didn't have far to travel in his blue CJ-7 with a 400ci Chevy V-8. The body looks mostly original, which is a feat being in the northeast. An AGR steering box and rock ram helps push around the BFG MT tires. Inside the front hoop and spreaders come off the factory roll bar to provide protection for the occupants. The aftermarket front bumper with recovery shackles helps if they get hung up.
