I'll be there all weekend too, setting up camp Friday afternoon.

Every year for about 3-4 years now we have had a jeep cruise and 5-10 minute ride to downtown York to a place called Cobblestones on Saturday night and sit in their air conditioning (much needed in recent years!) and have some good food and drinks. Its a huge place that was an old ballroom with very high ceilings, turned into a bar. Family and kid friendly too. We will leave around 630 7 so if you want to head there with us post or shoot me a PM.

See ya'all in York.

Well. it's officially going to be a day trip for us. We'll have the Battlewagon entered in the show on Sat. We'll have our ez-up for some much needed shade. We'll see you all there!

I plan on heading over on Sat to check out some Jeeps. Unfortunately I will only be a spectator.

Going to swing by for a few on Saturday. It's only a 40 minute drive from my house.

I've never been before but I'm assuming there is some sort of vendor/parts forsale area? If anybody has a good condition stock set of springs for sale I'm interested. I also have a good set of 2-3" lift front springs to get rid of and that I'm going bring with me if anybody is looking for a set.

Sad truth...

My jeep won't be there, but I will be. I was really hoping to get it back on the road by this weekend...

If anyone is interested in buying a BJ's aluminum radiator, let me know. I never installed it; I only drilled and elongated holes to meet up with my rad support.

I decided I want to keep it stock. I also bought the fatter water pump, so I won't be able to run a fan clutch. Between those two things, back to brass and copper I go.

I'm hoping my old rad can be re-cored. If not, I'll have to pick up a new one...

REMINDER - Saturday at 1 pm we have an FSJ owners meeting the Z&M Jeeps tent. Also remember, the Z&M Jeeps tent is air conditioned and there is plenty of water and shade so stop by and see us. See you all this weekend.

I was thinking... Yesterday's rain probably made the event more fun, rather than worse.
Hope everyone is having a good time.

Turnout was definitely down this year. I think there were a total of 7 FSJ's, if you count the two FCs. Not much in the way of old iron at all, one Willys wagon, two Willys trucks, and a couple flat fenders. As much as I hate to say it, watching the obstacle course was the highlight of the days festivities.

Well, the rumor is next year the FSJ's will be grouped in with Liberty, Compass, Patriot, and Commander and the FC's will have their own class.

This was the worst showing of FSJ's I've seen in years. Four usual participants, one very enthusiastic new J-truck owner (he's young still) and two FC trucks. I guess it will be back to three trophies overall for the class due to lack of participation.

Otherwise, I thought the show was ehhhh, ok. There were a TON of swap meet vendors although I felt the selection was kind of slim unless you needed tires, turn signal lenses, or pignose grilles. There were the usual new parts vendors for anything baby Jeep related. There were as many Comanche's as there was FSJ's. The Willy's and the Military classes were lacking in numbers too unfortunately. The baby Jeeps?................boring as usual so who cares.

Most exciting things of the day? scoring a perfect J-truck plastic tank for $20, meeting up with JeepinPete to get my Pete-machined disc rotor for my transfer case e-brake (thanks a Million) and our little trail fix off US30 in the Advanced Auto parking lot (also scored a treasure hunt hot wheel to boot).

Here's some pics of our favorites.


Original 5 lug axles


100% original


$6500 brings it home.

This will take some getting used to.


This thing has it all!!






Brother's from another Mother.




Our newest young friend


This is what happens if you don't tuck the wires tight enough after you replace the ignition module. Lasted a year till this happened.


Trail fix baby!


We'll be back next year for sure.

I think it was around 230 or so (which would be just after the peer voting ended), he began to pick up his displays, chair, cooler etc... but he was having a little trouble staying vertical. He, if fact, broke his fall against another fellow FSJ, putting a scratch in it's otherwise pristine paint. At this point a FSJ'er notified the event staff of the situation, who quickly notified the local PD after telling him to pour out the remaining said Keystone Lights onto the ground. Said local constubulary took the owner of the maroon Jeep outside the gate for a chat and a time-out. After some time the officers walked him back to his truck and had him secure his vehicle and he was escorted out and told to leave the truck there until morning. Well wouldn't you know by 400pm that truck was gone ( I didn't see who drove it away - but I was told it was the same fellow who only two hours earlier couldn't keep his feet under him.) Now keep in mind the very first page of the registration states "NO PETS or ALCOHOL inside of the event gate." And as you may have read elsewhere, for possibly the very first time in PA JEEP Show history, the weather was mild, so it's not like said Maroon Wagoneer owner can claim he was overcome by the heat.

I think for causing a seen, breaking the rules, and almost committing a DWI (if not for the quick actions of the FSJ bystanders), he should have to forfiet his entry. Can you imagine the message it would send if he goes home with a 1st place trophy after that? I wasn't there on Sunday, so I don't know if he came back, or if he won. And, no, I'm not in the same category as him, so I don't stand to win if he got the boot.
