One of the Leading providers of aftermarket Jeep parts and accessories, 4WD, was holding its 40th Anniversary Jeep Jamboree in Columbiana, Ohio last weekend.
Admission to the event was free! There were plenty of activities for jeepers including trail rides and an obstacle course, over 80 onsite vendors, a Show-n-Shine and lots of 4x4 aftermarket product giveaways. Obstacles included concrete culvert pipe, boulders, telephone poles and holes dug by bulldozers. And, of course, there was water and mud hazards. Anything a true, wild, open air Jeep driver could possibly encounter had been included in the obstacle course.
The weather for this year’s event was also a nice treat with temperatures in the upper 80’s and 90’s and sunny all weekend led to a record turnout of Jeepers on both Saturday and Sunday! If you have never been to this event it is definitely one you don’t want to miss with every type and style of Jeep product that you can get your hands on! And the best part is being able to walk right into the 4WD showroom and warehouse that is stocked with everything under the sun so you can buy all of your Kentrol products right there and take it home with you!
Overall it was a great Jeeping time! 4WD Jamboree has become well known for putting on an awesome, Well Organized and Fun Filled event, and this one was no different! Looking forward to the next year!

Things got reeeaaally dirty at this year’s 4WD Jamboree, which means it was a total success!
Last month, 4,200 mudders showed up with Jeeps and other vehicles in tow to 4WD’s Columbiana headquarters for the 17th Annual 4WD Jamboree for some serious fun, including a rock crawl, mud pit, obstacle course, and the Kentrol-sponsored Show ‘N’ Shine event. We had 1,545 Jeeps climbing, crawling, and plowing through the mud. It was a blast! In case you missed it, here are some pictures from the event! Thanks to 4WD for supplying some great shots from their album.
Jeep & Greet...
The Jamboree kicked off on Friday, Sept. 25, with a Jeep & Greet at the Sandwich Factory parking area in Columbiana.
So. Much. Fun. It was amazing to see what a Jeep can climb and crawl over, but things definitely got extremely bumpy for the passengers. You will get jostled around. 4WD grabbed some great action shots from the obstacle course and the mud pit!
Friends and Family...
Kentrol had a Rubicon on display that was detailed half and half, so attendees could take a look at two different finishes. We also gave away two door prizes: black-textured hood kits for JK. There was also plenty to keep the kiddos occupied, including go karts and CJ, 4WD's mascot.
Show 'N' Shine...
We had 94 Jeeps entered into this year’s Show ‘N’ Shine event. There were some incredible entries and the judges had a real tough time picking the winners, who took home some really cool trophies that were custom-welded from gear install parts from 4Wheel Drive Hardware’s shop. Too cool!
