Morris 4×4 Center 25th Jeep Meet
Great Show & Huge Event!



The scene was Jeepers and Jeeps everywhere. The sea of purple shirts are members from the South Pointe Off-Road Club, just one of several enthusiast groups in attendance.

Turn out was just fantastic. You’d be hard pressed to see everything as the show spilled out packing four or five lots with Jeeps coming and going throughout the day.



Jeeps are cool because you can park them like THAT!

The album for Saturday’s event is being put together with a good number pictures already in it, but make sure to check back over the next day or two as the

Photos Album for the Morris 4×4 Center – 25th Annual Jeep Meet
