2018 Moab Easter Jeep Safari: Things That Weren’t Jeeps #EJS2018

The 4x4 function on this van wasn’t required to access this campsite, but it is cool nonetheless.

During the Moab Easter Jeep Safari, Jeeps outnumber people. Jeeps receive almost all the attention. Side-by-side owners sit on the sidelines, pilots of fullsize rigs are segregated into their own trail rides, and one can see more Jeep Waves than actual waves on the North Shore of Oahu.

This big F-250 came from Oregon.
Can we PLEASE see this on one of Moab’s off-road trails? Please?

This being said, we decided to wade through the hundreds (and maybe millions?) of seven-slotted 4x4s to find some of the other rigs that traveled to Moab for the annual Safari. Our search took us from the crowded hotel parking lots and campsites to the outskirts of town and condominium driveways. Though it was a difficult task, we managed to find everything from camper vans and rock buggies to towering tow rigs and Toyota crawlers.

Black tubing, big tires, and lots of crawling.

Join us as we take you on our journey past the folding windshields, removable doors, and headlights that look like pouty eyes.

OK, cue the hate mail—we know it’s a Jeep. The diesel Honcho was still cool.
No snorkel was needed on this trail, but those tall tires sure were useful.

Also, if this is the first you’re hearing about this “Easter Jeep Safari,” be sure to search “#EJS2018” at to read all about the fun and festivities that descend upon Moab, Utah, this time every spring. We have riveting stories of new vehicles and trail rides, mega-galleries of photos, and enough videos to occupy two entire lunch breaks.

This Bronco had six cylinders in a row, a heckin’ expensive paintjob, and was rocking this off-camber section of trail.
