2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 Design Analysis with designer Ralph Gilles
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is a strange
Jeep indeed. It is more at home on the race track than on the Rubicon
Trail. Think of it more as a all wheel drive tarmac tearing machine instead
of an off-road worthy SUV. We recently had the chance to interview the
Chrysler's SRT Brand CEO and designer Ralph Gilles about the design of the
new Jeep SRT8.
Jeep Beach 2013 - "Sun for Days" by Rebel Off Road
Jeep Beach is one of the most unique 4x4 events held in the world. You
must experience it to understand it. Thousands of vehicles descend upon
Daytona Beach, Florida for this annual festival of sunshine and round
Rebel Off Road joined the masses as a Rubicon level sponsor again this
year, making us one of the longest running heavy hitters to help support
this fantastic gathering. Put on by the Mid Florida Jeep Club in
collaboration with the Shores Resort and Spa and Daytona International
Speedway -- Jeep Beach never fails to deliver on fantastic people and
plenty of scenery.
So here's how it works: Day 1 is the "unofficial" kick off held at Hooters
across from the Daytona International Speedway. It's where the early
arrivals say hello to the club and get an updated status of the weeks'
Day 2 is the "official" kick off held at Lucky's, a bowling alley that
quickly turns into a mini-Jeep dealership! The parking lot filled up so
fast people were left parking on top of other Jeeps, curbs, grass, anywhere
Day 3 - well, let's call day 3 a block party. Day 3 was held at the local
Harley Davidson dealership and in no way was it possible to see every Jeep
that arrived. There must have been well over 500. It was a zoo -- but tons
Day 4 was registration day at the Shores Resort and Spa (aka Host Hotel).
The line was MASSIVE. People stood in line for up to 3 hours to sign up
for the following day's event at the Speedway. Day 4 was the first day we
were able to set up a booth and do a proper meet and greet with our fans.
Day 5 was the "run" and obstacle course held at the Daytona International
Speedway. We don't need to describe it to much here, just watch the video
to get an idea what it was all about.
We can't thank all our friends enough for their outpouring of support.
Peter White and his family -- special thanks to Caitlyn for being our Jeep
Beach Miss Rebel -- aka Miss Attitude :) Thank you to Bed Hedrick and
Hedrick SpeedSports for your fantastic support and private "coastal
waterway" tour. Congratulations to Yeti owners Jess and Bill -- your
REBELCON turned out absolutely fantastic. Absolutely a monster on the East
Coast -- well, anywhere really! Of course, thank you for your friendship
To all our friends, both old and new, east coast and west coast, thank you
for your support. We wouldn't and couldn't do this without you.
