Easter Jeep Safari 2015: Fullsize InvasionPosted in Moab Experience: 2015 on April 2, 2015
This may come as a surprise, but there’s more than just Jeeps at the Easter Jeep Safari (EJS). There are actually fullsize rigs, and four years ago three guys, we’ll call ‘em Stephen, John, and Jerrod, had an idea to launch a fullsize trail ride during the Jeep-titled event. They called it the Fullsize Invasion and it instantly became one of those “why didn’t we think of this before” events.
The idea was simple. Invite fullsize 4x4 owners to a day of trail riding. The creators of Fullsize Invasion had no idea how many vehicles would show up. Or if any would show up. Well, the response was amazing and it was a no-brainer that the Fullsize Invasion would be an annual event.
The 2015 Fullsize Invasion was held on the fifth day of EJS 2015, and 32 rigs took part in the trail ride, which included Golden Spike trail. Full disclosure: Not all of the rigs were fullsize. It seems that the Fullsize Invasion has become so popular that it draws folks who want to be part of the fun. The event planners have no problem with that.
The fullsize rigs in attendance were a fascinating conglomeration of everything from purpose-built trail machines to active tow rigs. Needless to say, the pack of fullsizes attracted attention all day from folks who are accustomed to seeing smaller short-wheelbase rigs on the trail.
