The 2018 Willys Overland Rally in Moab

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features

The Willys Overland Rally 2018 in Moab this year was successful again. According David, “The Willys event in Moab went very well.  Over 110 people and almost 50 Willys jeeps of various types.  People came from Utah, Montana, Arizona, Colorado, California, Idaho, and others I can’t remember.  Some big bucks beautiful restorations and some low bucks leaky originals !  Red Cliffs Lodge is a great place for an event like this although approx. 20 miles outside of Moab.  Trail ride was mild but fun and scenic.  Had a fun and challenging rocky hill some of us tried.  Jp magazine was there and will have an article later this year.”
