What started about a decade ago as an opportunity to break the norm of taking Jeeps out on the trails for one day during Easter Jeep Safari in Moab has grown and evolved into a full week of trail riding as more than a hundred super cool rides converge on the town to run the big boys. From tow rigs and classic K5 to purpose built bobbed and dovetailed square bodies, exocaged RAMs and more, this eccentric group hit the red rocks of Moab ready for a good time.
BDS Suspension has been the official suspension of the Fullsize Invasion or at least participating in to since the beginning. Typically unhooking our tow rig and bringing it out on the trails to show what our off-the-shelf lifted trucks can do. This year was we followed suit bringing our 2012 Ford Super Duty, the General out on the trail. In addition, BDS sponsored athlete Kevin Stearns was out in Moab for the Ultra4 Beatdown at Area BFE and decided to bring his #11 4400-car out on the trail to put on a show. It was a sight to see these polar opposites out on the trail together, but also spoke to the diversity in the group that attends the Fullsize Invasion. Other sponsors for the event include Offraod Power Products, Pivotal Manufacturing, Warn, Raceline Wheels, AffordableBender.com, Offroad Design, Gordon Custom Fabrication, Reckless Wrench, Corbeau Seats, Mercenary Offroad, F Garage, XS Power Batteries, and Devil Mountain Diesel.
The 2020 Schedule of trail rides for the most part was the week prior to the traditional Easter Jeep Safari event and had rides on Porcupine Rim, Cliffhanger, 3D Pickle, Steel Bender, and Poison Spider Mesa. The week had its fair share of body damage, trail repairs and broken drivetrain, but smiles all around as the group came together to break the COVID norm and hit the trail together for some rock therapy. Great job by Jerrod Jones and Dave Hellman with putting together a great Fullsize Invasion once again!
