Fullsize Invasion Of Gold Bar Rim At The 2017 Easter Jeep SafariPosted in Moab Experience: 2017 on April 17, 2017 0) (
Moab, Utah, is generally considered the Mecca of Jeep culture. Every year, Moab’s Jeep population explodes exponentially during the week leading up to Easter for the annual Easter Jeep Safari hosted by the Red Rock 4-Wheelers (www.rr4w.com). However, regardless of the event being called the Easter Jeep Safari, lots of non-Jeep vehicles join in the fun.
Years ago, Jerrod Jones (former editor of Off-Road magazine) and Stephen Watson (owner of Offroad Design) hatched a plan to get fullsize truck owners together during the popular week in Moab as a show of strength and solidarity in the big truck community, and Fullsize Invasion was born.
Fullsize Invasion does several runs during the week leading up to Easter and each year it has grown bigger than the last. For 2017, we jumped in the group and hit the ledges, stair-steps and waterfalls of the Gold Bar Rim trail. The group contained Ford F-350s, Dodge Rams, various GM fullsize rigs and many more. The Fullsize Invasion runs are a safe place, where anyone can run whatever they want, Jeeps included. No one is turned away.
