Got the chance to participate in the Jeep Adventure Academy that was held this past weekend in Sothern Missouri...

Learned a ton about the capabilities of our JLUR and earned our first 2 badges of honor! Thanks Jeep for putting this on, all the guides were super helpful, and guided us through some sketchy stuff on both trials....even well experienced Jeepers got into some rough spots!

Pics don't do the steep uphill grades nor deep water/rock spots, but there were some anxious Jeepers, but we all made it through, minus some scratches and dents!

Great review and pics, I hope to be able to do one if they ever come out closer to southern AZ!

Good post. Thanks for the insight. Even though I've got a fair amount of seat time, I'd be curious to attend one of these- especially when you say some of the more experienced people were challenged. It's also super cool they got you your first two badges of honor. The BOH program is a cool and fun program from Jeep.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing! I'm heading to the one in Hollister, CA this weekend for the Saturday session. Hoping to camp at the ORV park where it's being held.

We were there on Friday. I had a lot of fun and while my Jeep (JLUR with 2” Mopar and 35s) didn’t have any issues running the trails, I did learn some new things. I highly recommend for relatively new Jeepers and the non-experts. Looking at the diesel Gladiator was cool. And I really want the Jeep ebike (although probably not quite enough to spend that amount of money on one, but if I win the lottery!).

My wife rode the ebike around and really liked it too, she's a Peloton Biker, so I expected her to gravitate towards it,,,but the price...Ouch!

If she's a Peloton biker she should be used to the outrageous price.

(Full disclosure my wife works for Peloton)

My wife and I had an awesome time. No matter how many times we go wheeling, I’m always amazed at what our Jeep can do. In my video is a Gladiator Mojave hitting a jump at 50 mph. Handles it perfectly.
