This past weekend was the 28th Annual 4 Wheel Jamboree in Lima, OH. On Wednesday night we did a once over on our tow rig and trailer and loaded up product and gear and were ready to head out. After a quick 2 hour drive Thursday morning we rolled into the Allen County Fairgrounds with our sights set on an action packed 3 day event. After unloading Project MJ and setting up our booth space we headed to the car wash for a quick detailing session before calling it a day.
As we rolled into the fairgrounds Friday morning the weather was perfect and diesel smoke was already filling the air. The gates were flooding with participants itching to get in as vendors took advantage of the calm before the storm to make last minute touches to their booths. When 9am rolled around the gates opened and the action was spooling up. Rigs of all types filled up the cruise route as the sound of horsepower and testosterone echoed from the activities going on in the infield. As the heat index grew so did the crowd, and with many past and potential customers stopping by our booth to pickup some Zone gear and check out our show specials there was never a dull moment.
It never fails, no matter how many lime green Koozies we bring to this show we always sell out, and it happened again this year. Project MJ was a huge hit again and the new lime green graphics and color scheme of the HD tow rig drew a lot of attention as well as requests for lime green shirts and decals. We love all the support for what we do and appreciate all those who stopped by our booth with feedback, to say hi, and talk suspension. We always enjoy working with those in search of their new lift kit and helping with any questions. We are extremely grateful for all our customers who have made us who and what we are today. Also, thank you to the Family Events staff who worked very hard to make this show happen, kudos to them for another great Jamboree. We look forward to a summer full of awesome events like this one and hope you all can find the time to fit one or two into your busy schedules, life is too short and we all need a little more 4×4 action in our lives!

Bless the Jeeps! 2013 Blessing of the Jeeps
Zone made the short trip north to Mesick, MI for the 2013 Blessing of the Jeeps event last weekend. Steve and Shawn loaded up the displays and brought Project MJ along to set up in the vendor area to chat with customers about some of our new and upcoming products. Well over 1000 Jeepers converged on the fairgrounds for the one day event bringing in everything from vintage Jeeps to Mopar Underground concepts, daily drivers to competition crawlers. With great weather the event stayed busy all day long. Towards the end of the day Steve took the MJ out on the obstacle course with some excited customers. Thanks to everyone that stopped by the Zone booth during the event. There’s a long show season ahead and we hope to see you out at some of the upcoming events.

Jeep Beach in Daytona, Florida… great event, great people, great weather. The crew from Zone made the trip down for the annual gathering of Jeepers and this year wow what a turnout. The event had something for everyone with Jeep cruises, a Jeep-themed scavenger hunt, various meet-n-greets, and vendor show with off-road course and tons of giveaways. Zone made it down for the week’s festivities and had a chance to see a number of our great customers.
With things going on all week there’s always some way to get involved. The main event is Saturday on the infield of the Daytona International Speedway. The event turnout was great with record numbers of both vendors and attendees we couldn’t have asked for better weather. A big thanks goes out to Chewy from Extreme Performance who brought out a great looking Zone 4”-equipped JK to show off in our booth. To see photos from the event head to Zone’s Facebook Page.
