The vendors and factory exhibitors that attended the Morris 4×4 show last weekend have motored their way on up I-95 and are in Dayton for Jeep Beach. While the partying has already started, there’s still time to make the scene. Main events are scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday – Challenge Courses & Vendors Exhibits
Courses run mild to wild
Are staffed with capable people who can advise and if needed recover
and it’s always fun to see what everyone else has brung and see it in action
More photos at the Challenge Course Album
Sunday – Morning Beach Ride/Parade
For the last 8 years this has been a monster for turn out
After the morning meetup, Jeeps head down the beach single file.
The procession is miles long.
For more photos of the beach ride, check out prior years Beach Ride Albums
As mentioned by brother Bruno, the Morris 4×4 Show is this Saturday. This is your chance to score some awesome stuff directly from the vendors and get a eye full of Jeeps. Who knows maybe one of Jeep’s concept vehicles from Easter Jeep Safari will show up just like last year.
Don’t miss it, it’s huge.

By any other name it could be a Wrangler, and so would a TJ, YJ or even JL. Keeping it percise, Vegas Dave has put together a handy little list of Model Codes to Vehicles.
Nice thing to refer to when someone’s telling a story and throwing around a unfamiliar model code (“I rolled my ‘BU’ on the trail this weekend, but I’m okay”… right, I’m sure you are.). Now if we can get Dave to include the matching pix we might have the beginnings of a cool spotter’s guide. Not that it’s too likely I’ll see a VJ or C101 just tooling down the street and wonder what kind of Jeep that was, but then again, you never know.
Mark your calendar and put in that vacation request in now (or at very least plan for the weekend), Jeepbeach is next month.
If Central Florida isn’t too much of a drive for you, the Jeep Ranch has opened the park for the whole Topless weekend (May 19th through the 21st).
The park is a 2000+ acre working cattle ranch in the heart of Central Florida. The trails are all natural with many peppered with challenges certain to build skill. The park caters exclusively to Jeeps making the TJR a treat to ride.
True to Central Florida, there is good bit of up and down.
Obstacle challenges if you desire.
Bring what you got, run what you have, just make sure it’s a Jeep.
Check out their facebook page, turn out is already looking strong.

Members of the club has been camping this park for years and would make for a great introduction to this beautiful natural getaway.
For the past couple of years, many of us (GFJTT, TCJC, JJC members) have camped out here for the weekend of GO TOPLESS Day. Sites have FULL HOOKUPS (electric, water) and are nice and open. We relax, eat, drink, talk, sit aroung a campfire and then many caravan down to our respective Go Topless events. Last year the GoTopless picnics were combined, this year, as far as I can see, nothing definitive has been posted as of today 2/15.. Regardless, Come join us for some fun & relaxation! The “core” sites are 28 through 30, but there are multiple sites open in the park for that weekend at this time, many close to that area. Best way of registering for a site is through the state website… https://www.floridastateparks.org/park/Jonathan-Dickinson Hope to see you all there! Tents, Pop-ups, Travel Trailers, 5th Wheels, RV’s!
