This will be the second annual Jeep Wrangler TJ Forum “TJ Fest”. The plan is to get as many TJs as we can together for what will hopefully become a yearly wheeling trip. It should be noted that┬áthis is a wheeling trip, not an event.

In hindsight, the name “TJ Fest” is a bit misleading, as it suggests it is some sort of festival, which it’s not. Food will not be provided, there will be no vendors, no designated trail leaders, etc.

There will be no set plans on what we are doing. It will be as simple as meeting up each morning (or getting people’s phone numbers who you want to wheel with) and deciding what trail we want to do and who we want to wheel with.

There will be no oversight or instruction by myself or anyone else as to who goes where or who is doing what. One group may be doing more difficult trails, while another group will simply be doing more scenic trails. Certain groups will of course have requirements. For instance, a group that’s picked a more difficult trail for the day will not be letting anyone tag along who doesn’t have lockers and 35s or larger.

As long as each group has a trail leader who has the Gaia GPS app and the GPX maps from Trails Off-Road, then there is no way to really get lost. A GMRS radio is highly recommended and most of us will be running them. A CB will work as well, but many of us (myself included) will not be using a CB radio. People without at least one of these communication options should not come, period. There is no excuse whatsoever for not having at least one of these communication options.

Please keep in mind that if you have attended Easter Jeep Safari or other similar events in the past, this is nothing like that whatsoever. It’s literally a forum planned wheeling trip for TJ owners and enthusiasts, plain and simple.

Planned Dinner Event
There will be a planned dinner event at 5PM on Tuesday, April 26 2022 at Zax Restaurant, downtown Moab.
