7 Things You Must Do Before Summer Ends

We’re not here to be the bearers of bad news, but the summer won’t last forever. The oncoming autumn and winter seasons don’t mean that having fun in your Jeep® vehicle has to end, but you just might be inclined to keep the top on and the windows up when you’re tackling the terrain later on in the year. Well here’s some good news: summer weather is still shining and we want to help ensure that you get everything accomplished – from the fun to the practical – as we hit August and near September. So without further ado, here are seven things you must do before the summer ends:

 

1. Get your Jeep® vehicle dirty… then wash it by hand. How many brands do you know that actually want your vehicle to get muddy and dirty? Put yours to the test by going mudding, crawling, or generally taking your Jeep vehicle where other vehicles don’t dare go. Then, take photos of your dirty Jeep vehicle and post them to our Facebook wall.

 

2. Top off your vehicle’s fluids. For those in colder climates, it’s imperative that your windshield wiper fluid, antifreeze, and other fluids are full and ready to take on any sudden changes in climate. The weather has been pretty unpredictable this year.

 

3. Take a weekend road trip. Nothing says “summer” like a good, old-fashioned road trip. So pack up your Jeep Wrangler and head out for a weekend. Bonus points for making it an “off-road trip” and camping.

 

4. Modify your Jeep brand vehicle. Admit it: you want to tinker around with your vehicle. All Jeep vehicles come standard with capability, but why not check out the accessories and modification kids from Mopar® before the summer ends?

 

 

5. Replace your wiper blades. You will likely use your wipers more often in the fall (and especially the winter), so having a fresh set of blades is a must.

 

 

6. Sign up for a Jeep® Jamboree. Jeep Jamborees run throughout the year, and if you’ve never participated, why not add one to your 2012 bucket list? Head over to the Jeep Jamboree website for event locations and dates, and prepare to navigate some of America’s toughest (and most fun) trails.

 

 

7. Buy a Jeep brand vehicle! It should go without saying that the key to the ultimate summer adventure is having a Jeep brand vehicle. So whether you’re in the market for your first Jeep Wrangler or looking to add a Jeep Compass, Patriot, Liberty, or Grand Cherokee to your vehicle stable, now is the perfect time to visit your local Jeep dealer to take a test drive.

  1. Just made a Jeep entry on my blog. Love our Jeep, but I think there are a lot of young woman driving these trucks that you are missing an opportunity to market to them.

    We took a 2000 mile road trip in our 06 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited this summer, we traveled the flatlands of Oklahoma and Texas, the rolling hills of New Mexico and Arizona, the canyons and gorges of Arizona and Utah, the bright lights of Las Vegas and back through the mountains of Colorado. We made the trip on 6 lane, 4 lane, 2 lane, and basically no lane. Crossed the continental divide where only a Jeep could take us. It was the most wonderful vacation ever and reinforced just how big and beautiful our country really is.

    Ive had two jeeps one a red 92 yj that a had and got to play with for about 4 yrs. in the early new millennium, and a 2007 that i had just purchased about a year ago november. Been very happy with all the changes that they have made some cosmetic some mechanical but neway ive taken it off roading in the local forest in freetown mass and i must say rides smoothly handles mud daringly and is a trout in the water as long as it doesnt pass the doors. Jeep owners we have a very well rounded muti-capable vehicle that has been dominating on and off road for decades. It was the first 4×4 and has all ways remained trail rated. The choice vehicle for atleast wwii if not 1 also. The choice of the grandfathers of the 21st century and the choice of there sons and daughters. American made and american played. God i love this jeep

Has been my childhood vehicle choice since i had my first power-wheels. I feel in love with them on the beach and on the trails off our escapades around new england been waiting for the perfect time to go for a long road trip but been saveing for a few modifications before i head out.

  5. I’d love to take my TJ to a Jeep Jamboree, but it doesn’t look like there is one in Virginia this year.

    I did manage to get out to Mist Mountain for some trail rides – it’s a great place if anyone is in the central VA area.
