Morris 4x4 Center is proud to be a sponsor of Jeep Jamboree USA. These events take place across America and allow Jeep fans to safely trail and enjoy the great outdoors. Since 1953, the Jeep Jamboree has been a well known popular event and known for it's professionalism. They usually take place for three days, with registration on Thursday, and the driving taking place normally on Friday and Saturday. These are family oriented events, and allow Jeep drivers and fans to experience trailing in a safe manner, with expert guides, spotters, and crews. The Jeep Jamboree USA  caters to every level of Jeep drivers, from experts to beginners. Family fun is the goal here and the whole event is geared towards that. Just about any Jeep vehicle with a 4-Lo transfer case can participate, but Jeep CJs and Wranglers are the best for certain trails, and recommended. Experienced trail guides will help you navigate through scenic switchbacks and some of the most challenging off-highway situations for your Jeep. But best of all, you’ll be meeting and making new friends along the way and during the weekend.

The Jeep Jamboree USAs are Jeep only events, so you won't be mixing with any race trucks, ATVs or other vehicles. It's strictly for the Jeep fans. The trails are usually a mix of terrains for various challenges, but safety is a priority. The trails have been set up to be as safe as they can, so that drivers can have a good time without (hopefully) damaging their rides or causing any concerns. There are plenty of experienced Spotters and Guides to help you though the terrain at your own speed, but still allow you to enjoy the trails with confidence. For safety and the family atmosphere, alcohol beverages are not allowed. Certain gear is also mandatory to keep you safe, and other drivers safe while enjoying the event. Jeep Jamboree Requirements -
  • There are many safety issues regarding upcoming obstacles transmitted over the CB radio by your trail guides. It is required that each vehicle have a CB radio. Learn interesting facts about the area – history, local plant and wildlife, as well as exciting stories.
  • Jeep vehicles must have four-wheel drive with a low-range (4-LO) transfer case.
  • Front and rear tow points must be properly mounted to the frame with grade-eight bolts.
