Jeep-Bash, Southern California

For years, it seemed like the East Coast had the lock down on the beach related Jeep events until 2015 when KMC Wheels, Jeep, and Mel Wade owner EVO Manufacturing teamed up to create the first West Coast Jeep event of it's kind right here in beautiful Southern California.  It's a celebration of all things Jeep and the great manufacturers supporting it with aftermarket accessories.    

This KMC Jeep-Bash is held right smack dab in the middle of Long Beach, California harbor on the green grassy knolls of Shoreline Aquatic Park.  There are plenty of Jeeps to ogle, and an amazing backdrop that includes a view of the Queen Mary.  To smear a little icing on the cake, the first year Jeep-Bash was held on the same day as the Catalina Ski Race, where die-hard extreme water skiers strap themselves in behind a 100 mph open water boats and raced from the harbor to the island of Catalina and back.  Add in a famous food truck, which was stuffed with delectable morsels, vendors, fresh air, awesome builds there was no other place you'd rather be!

The KMC Jeep-Bash is growing by leaps and bound and is back for the 3rd year.   So make your summer plans today, bring the family, get your buddies together and we'll see you July 8, 2017.
