Let's face it, we all got our start somewhere and for those of you who are looking to get a taste of the Jeep way of life, I would highly recommend that you visit a Camp Jeep near you. Found at events like Jeep Jamborees and local auto shows, Camp Jeep is an interactive fun zone designed for the whole family to enjoy and of course, one that allows you to take a short test ride in a Jeep JK Wrangler. Driven by a professional driver, you will be taken on a ride over tree stumps and logs that highlight the maneuverability and clearance of the Wrangler. You will also be taken across a steep, 30 degree off camber hill and opposing articulation ramps that allow you to see first hand just how nimble and stable the Wrangler's suspension really is. Last but not least, you will be taken up and over the 35 degree, Jeep Mountain, which is a hill 18 feet high and demonstrates the Wrangler's superior traction to get you up it and hill assist feature that helps you to get back down.

To give you an idea of what you can expect to see and experience, this short video will show you highlights from the Camp Jeep we visited with some friends during the Orange County International Auto Show in Anaheim, California. We hope you enjoy.

That's a great idea. They should have a cabin camera for the off camber. I bet a lot of non-offroaders get pretty puckered with that.

fortunately for us, the jk was more stable than that :yup:

I tried! I was really impressed at how stable it was. Not even close to feeling tippy

I just had a 20 minute conversation with our UPS man today about camp Jeep. He loved the mini trail ride and was really exited about it. I can see this guy buying a jeep just from the trail ride.
