Were You At The 2018 KMC Jeep Bash?

The beach was packed with food, fun, and 400 Jeeps!

Jeeps came to the beach on the West coast for the fourth year in a row! KMC Wheels, EVO Manufacturing, and Jeep brought the Jeep Bash to Bolsa Chica State Beach on Saturday, September 22.

Built in ’67 or ’17, round headlamps or square, all Jeeps were welcome to come show off while spectators perused the parking lot. Vendors were on-site with knowledge and wares, food trucks fed the hungry crowds, and the sand and waves were mere feet away when it was time to relax and enjoy the live ’80s music.

We walked the aisles of Jeeps and were nothing short of entertained by the various Rubicon-esque custom decals we found pasted to the hoods and windshields.

Can we please see this rig air down its tires and crawl some rocks?

These two YJs were straight from the gates of Jurassic Park.

Who wore it better? Grumper or eight-eyed spider grille?

This old Willys had both a Michigan plate and the frame from a ’06 TJ Unlimited underneath.

We’ve seen air compressors perform a variety of duties on the trail, but this is the first instance of pneumatic blender we’ve seen in a while. Smoothie anyone?

Custom hood ornaments were in full force at the Jeep Bash.

Even though this was a “show-and-shine” of sorts, some rigs showed up proudly displaying their battle scars.

Jeep was answering questions about the Sandstorm concept Jeep, that was unveiled at the 2018 Moab Easter Jeep Safari.

Here is the massive gallery of all ofwhat we saw at the show:
