How it All Started
Back in 2009 Mel Wade of Off Road Evolution started a new jeep adventure called the JK-Experience because the other high profile events frowned on the new Jeep Wrangler JK models participating in their events. He wanted an event that showcased the capabilities of the new Jeep JK and JKU models while providing participants something more than an off-road event he wanted to provide an “experience!” Since that time, JK-Experience had been an annual week-long event, beginning Labor Day weekend, that most JK owners dream of participating in someday.
This trip quickly became nationally known as the "JKX". With such great interest and participation, it has grown into more than just a "JK" thing.
Today, Mel and his awesome team of sponsors hosts off-roading events all over the United States, catering to all off-road enthusiasts. The Jeep-Xperience is branch off of the JKX and open to all breeds of Jeep. The first inaugural Jeep-Xperience was in 2016 and with such a great involvement we're back for 2017.
