Spend four days with 100 Jeeps and the staff of Jp Magazine!

The 4th annual Jp Dirt ’N Drive will wheel several states in the Southwest on our way to Moab, Utah, in time for the Easter Jeep Safari. Apply now to see if you will be among the 100 Jeeps selected for this incredible 4x4 journey. The 2019 Jp Dirt ’N Drive event is just a few months away, and we’re opening the application period now! Application instructions are below, so submit the required information and photos by email for your chance to be one of the lucky 100 chosen by the staff of Jp Magazine to participate.

The planned route will offer scenic highlights and off-road challenges in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah, for all levels of experience and for your Jeep’s capability. On the road portion, all posted legal speed limits will be observed, but you don’t have to always follow the leader. You can set your own daily schedule—just as long as you attend all morning drivers’ meetings and check in with us at the end of every day for safety reasons. We will visit historical sites as well as wheel in various locations along the way to Moab.

If you and your Jeep are chosen to participate, there is a $125 registration fee, which includes the entry fee for one Jeep, driver, and copilot for all three days; two entries to the BBQ in Moab; three Jp Dirt ’N Drive T-shirts per registered person; and one goody bag full of Jp and sponsor swag. Each additional passenger costs $25, with three (3) passengers maximum. We will have discount codes for all three hotel nights, but participants are responsible for all their own fuel, lodging, and food. The adventure begins at a yet-to-be-disclosed location on Thursday, April 11, 2019, and arrives in Moab, Utah, on Sunday evening, April 14, 2019, (just in time to begin Easter Jeep Safari week) for the complimentary BBQ party and raffle hosted by Jp Magazine.

Jp Dirt ’N Drive is open to any Jeep-brand vehicle; however, Jeeps with advertising or non-sponsor stickers slathered across them will not be allowed as a courtesy to our Dirt ’N Drive sponsors. You also must have the following mandatory safety and recovery equipment to be eligible to participate. All vehicles must pass a full tech inspection during the on-site registration day prior to departing on the road trip. Please include the following information in your email application, and if selected we will issue your exclusive registration code for the 2019 Jp Dirt ’N Drive event!

• Please include your full name and number of people in your Jeep
• Year and model of your Jeep
• Must be four-wheel drive with good tread on your tires

Send us a photo of your Jeep and tell us exactly how your Jeep is outfitted for off-road travel (we can’t send back your exclusive registration code without this complete information) to so you can secure your spot as soon as “official event registration” opens for the 2019 Jp Dirt ’N Drive.
