The 4 Wheel Parts Truck & Jeep Fest rolled into town for the Atlanta show. The ATL was one of 10 destinations for the show’s tour and based on the vehicles in the parking lot, the attendance was significant. At the show, there were custom trucks and Jeeps, product demos and giveaways. Admission was free and parking was cheap, so it was certainly worth attending.
As is the case with a lot of these types of events, sometimes the real show is outside. So after making a few laps in the show and chatting with a view vendors, we decided to head outside.
The Cobb Galleria has multiple parking decks and they were littered with off-road rigs. The majority of the vehicles in attendance were Jeeps but there were quite a few trucks as well.
Unfortunately, after seeing a few dozen modified Wranglers, it started to feel redundant but there actually were quite a few that piqued our interest.
We love how the new JL Wranglers completely open up to the elements! This particular JL featured a cargo cover from Jeep Backbone.
The Jeeps were everywhere!
There were quite a few lifted trucks in attendance as well. Some were mall crawler spec and others a bit more functional.
As we were pulling out of the show, we heard the loud spool of a turbo diesel. Once we turned around, we caught a glimpse of the beast below!
Because we were leaving, we offered them one of our parking spots and chatted with the awesome couple who built the rig.
The husband and wife team had just returned from a 41-day trip out West. They relied on their rig for everything during the trip and it was easy to tell that it was capable of every adventure they encountered. The husband actually built the entire custom bed by himself! It featured a shower, toilet, 26-gallon water tank, storage and everything else you can think of.
Oh, hey Maple!
