Trail Hero 2018 took place about 5 miles from our shop and was an absolute blast. It was great to see so many off road enthusiasts in town and excited about the unique terrain southwestern Utah has to offer.
The event really sneaked up on me. I wasn’t planning on having any type of company presence at the event until I discussed the idea with the event coordinators. They were very encouraging to have another local company participate as a vendor. After that spark, I crammed about 150 hours of work into a week and half to put the finishing touches on the M.A.S.S. storage system for the Jeep JLU. I was able to get a close-to-production prototype installed into our J-Lo (our company Jeep JL). I setup the JL right in the middle of the vendor showcase and fielded questions all evening about the setup. I met quite a few people who are following along with the YouTube channel and quite a few people who expressed interest in purchasing a M.A.S.S. system of their own. It was very encouraging to talk to all of you at the event. I appreciate your interest in our brand.
I have seen YouTube videos of this event from past years, but nothing prepared me for the insanity of seeing it in person. I shot a ton of video, which will end up on our YouTube channel soon.Visit our Youtube Channel
The Metalcloak CTI trailer was on site at the event. I rarely pass up an opportunity to test a machine at this level, so of course I had to throw the new Jeep JLU Rubicon up on the trailer.
I was on a mission to get as much clearance as possible. So, off with the inner fenders. These will be replaced soon with aluminum inner fenders.
The Jeep JLU Rubicon scored a 760 on the trailer. Not bad for a mall crawler.
Huge thanks to Corey Osborne, of Modern Jeeper, for manning the trailer while I ripped apart the JL.
