    My wife, son and I made the short trip to Toledo Ohio this past saturday to the first Toledo Jeep fest. Was a pretty good time. We ended up missing the parade sadly, but saw everything in the convention center, which was pretty cool in itself. So here are some pictures from the trip.
    We finally made it, and found a parking spot!

    The red Jeep we parked next too, had some cool Mopar Jeep wheels I thought. Might have to research these for mine.

    Anyway when you first walk in, you are greeted by a super cool, optioned out, farm jeep, owned my Omix ada.

    Moving on, you find an old Jeep trencher!

    behind that is a lifted XJ, that my son wanted to sit in, and found out he couldn't. Very upset 3 year old!

    Moving on, one of my favorite YJ models besides the Sahara model, the islander. The factory wheels seemed to be replaced with Moab wheels, nice touch!

    Next to it, a super clean CJ5, loved it!

    looks to be a 258 for the motor
    [​IMG]
    After that we had some concept vehicles, the one I loved out of all of them, I think its called the "shortcut" I think a better name for it would be the JK-5

    After that is the much liked, trail cat Jeep, if you have to ask yourself why, I'm sorry..

    Absolutely loved the diff covers!

    Next is the comanche concept, I got a little video of it, heres some bed pictures of it
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Here's another jeep truck concept that was there
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    cool little touch!
    [​IMG]
    I found it odd, kids were just playing in it
    [​IMG]
    Anyway, next came a cool flat fender
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    and who could forget this
    [​IMG]
    and the super rare, "Super Jeep"
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Next are the runabout Jeeps I'm gonna have when I'm rich (ha!)

    Truly awesome pics and looks like you had a great time.


    I made this a "sticky" so it will stay on top if you don't mind.

    Great pictorial story!

    What a great event to share with your son - I'm jealous and disappointed I didn't go.

    Thanks for taking the time to post the pics and narrative.
