We had a great time hanging out in Ocean City, Maryland at the one and only Ocean City Jeep Week! This is an event we have been attending for quite a few years. From the morning beach crawls, obstacle courses, and vendor show, this show never disappoints. Each morning our day started off with the beach crawl. 250 Jeeps line up and one by one they file onto the beach. Spectators line up along the shore from start to finish. Jeeps head south down to pier. We only participated in the beach crawl one day. The other days we were there for media. You can see a few of the shots in the gallery below. It was fun to watch all the different Jeeps roll down the shore. A few people decorated their jeeps with flags and other accessories for the parade. Once Jeeps got near the end they went under the pier, where there were many spectators all waving and taking photos of the Jeeps passing by.

The vendor show stayed busy from start to finish. Many people came by asking about what we offered for their Jeep. Our local distributor, Bully Frog Customs, was there and they were taking orders for both us and our sister company, JKS Manufacturing. We had Bully Frog Customs owner's, Mark, 2018 JKU in our booth. This rig was sporting our 6.5" Long Arm Lift Kit on 40s.  Many people stopped by to check this rig out. Lots of photos were taken, and, of course, many people wanted to check out the stereo system inside.

Overall, it was a great event! We look forward to this one very year. Thank you to everyone that came out and talked to us. We look forward to wheeling on the beach with you next year.

Sun, Sand, Surf and Jeeps in Ocean City, Maryland as BDS joined more than 1000+ Jeeps of all shapes and sizes for Ocean City Jeep Week. BDS has been coming to this event since it started a few years back and each year it continues to grow with more vendors, participants and activities. This family friendly show has a little bit of everything from shown-shine and 2 different obstacle courses to tons of vendors and shops on site showing off the latest product and nightly parties. Each morning of the show starts off with a morning cruise along the soft sandy beaches before heading over to the OC convention center where vendors, show-n-shine and monster truck rides take place. Along with the beach obstacle course (new for 2018) there was a new off-site obstacle course for participants to take advantage of and show what their Jeeps were capable of. Following the show each night the group invaded restaurants and hotels for after parties with fun, food and giveaways. As always the BDS crew had a blast and wanted to thank the Livewire Media for putting on a great event, to all our dealers on site for their support and to all the dealers that stopped by the booth throughout the week. Check out some of photos from the show and look for more coverage in an upcoming story in JP magazine.

BDS spent the week on the east coast in Ocean City, MD for the 7th annual Ocean City Jeep Week. Organized by Live Wire Media, the coastal city welcomed nearly 1500 Jeeps for the 4 day festival. Mornings were spent cruising the beach for the daily Beach Crawl with special permission from the city to drive 250 Jeeps on the beach in parade formation. From there participants had their choice to head to the vendor show and show-n-shine at the OCJW headquarters or head over to the Jeep Jam for trail ride and obstacle course behind CC Customs. After a day packed with activities, the party continued into the night with parties each night of the event for participants and vendors.

The BDS crew made it into town Wednesday and set up inside the vendor show. With several project builds on hand like Project KJ, Everyday Chase F250 and the BDS Colorado the booth along with plenty of vendors and participants repping BDS we were well represented in Ocean City. Several of our dealers made it out for the show including Eastern Truck & Accessories, Trick Trucks, Adam’s Xtreme Motorsports, CC Customs, and JCR Offroad. A big thanks to everyone that stopped by the booth and to the event staff for their effort putting together the event.
