William Elam

For a fairly new Jeeper – not quite 3 years yet, this Jeeper jumped in with all fours and hammered down with it! Please welcome today’s Featured Jeeper William Elam

.

William Elam

XtremeTerrain: A little about yourself William…

 

William: I am a 40 year old male off-roader from Eaton, Ohio. Married with 5 children- 4 of which are still at home. I am a Machinist with Parker Hannifin Corporation Tube Fittings Division in Eaton, OH. I have loved the outdoors since I was a kid. I enjoy Camping, Hunting, Baseball, Football. I have been Off-roading for a little over 2 years now.

William Elam

XtremeTerrain: What type of Jeep do you run?

 

William: We are a Jeep Family! I drive a 2004 Wrangler X- slowly moving out of stock stages- 4.0l, 5-speed, 31x 10.50 BFG AT’s, Rampage nerf bars. My Wife-Amber, Drives a 1997 Wrangler SE- She went from a Ford mustang to the Jeep and “will never go back.” We are currently building a 1983 Waggoner Limited as the Kids’ Ride- for Will,17 and Britt, 15.

XtremeTerrain: Favorite spot to off road?

 

William: I enjoy doing road rallies, visiting old, unpaved roads and some old closed stream crossings from Scenic Road Rallies LLC in Sunman IN. (http://www.scenicroadrallies.com/) But My favorite place is definitely at JEEP JAM- the semi-annual event in Harveysburg, OH- sponsored by Muddy Buddy’s Jeep Wrangler Club of Dayton OH and Dave Dennis Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Beavercreek OH. Fun,Friends, and lots of MUD! (www.muddybuddys.net)

XtremeTerrain: Favorite off roading quote?

William: “Spotter remember- If I’m a-walkin’, You’re a-walkin!” -Hozer (Muddy Buddys)

XtremeTerrain: If you could have any modifications done, what would they be?

William: I want to add a 4″ lift, and a rear bumper with swing-out tire carrier. But getting a clear title is a priority for now.

William Elam

XtremeTerrain: What was your best/worse modification if any?

 

William: Best- going from stock to 31″ tires.Adding Nerf bars to make it easier for the kids to climb in 🙂

Worst- The Hardtop. It adds too much weight to an already overloaded suspension, is too cumbersome to remove by myself, and is extremely HOT in warm weather! Good thing for the A/C, (huh, Tom?)

XtremeTerrain: Do you belong to any off roading organization, if so which one(s)?

William: Muddy Buddys Jeep Wrangler Club (www.muddybuddys.net) -A great Family-oriented club, and active in preserving use of public land for off-road use.

Team Devil Frogg (http://teamdevilfrogg.weebly.com/) -A small Jeep-based, Adventure team covering Southwestern Ohio. Camping, Fishing, and Adventures in general.

XtremeTerrain: How old were you when you first started off roading?

William: While I didn’t off-road in a Jeep until a year or two ago, I got the bug from getting crazy in the woods on bicycles over 30 years ago-Long before the age of the “bike path”.

William Elam

XtremeTerrain: Why you love Jeep Off Roading?

 

William: Off-roading takes one away from the regular world. No computers, no Satellite TV, no Video Games, or road rage. It’s back to nature, and a different adventure every time.

XtremeTerrain: Any off roading story or incident you would like to share.

William: This is a great one. When on a road rally with my son Willy Elam and Bianca Elam, we approached a stream crossing with a small waterfall to my side. I stayed to the right to avoid going over the waterfall, only to find a low spot on the right- sending the jeep above the tires on the passenger side.

This is the first time any of us had been in a situation like this- and you could hear a pin drop. I said “hang on!”, threw it into reverse and hammered down. We came right out. I was never so happy to be in a Jeep. Bianca tells me “I’m never crossing another stream again!” She’s been on every Jeep trip since.

2010 Jeep Jam

2010 Jeep Jam

June 5th and 6th is the 2010 Jeep Jam, a celebration of Jeep and Off Road Adventure. I came across this little tidbit of information from the Muddy Buddys Jeep Wrangler Club’s website. Earlier in the week, one of the fans (William) on our Facebook page was talking about Big Maples Farm near Oxford Ohio. Out of my curiosity and yearning to learn about any off roading spots I found Big Maples Farm on Facebook and “liked” their Fanpage. (heck them out!) In checking out their page I saw I was too late to help out any with the latest Jeep Outing that took place – the 2010 Relay 4 Life 4×4 Covered Bridge Run but came across the Muddy Buddy’s which led me to the 2010 Jeep Jam that I can get a shout out about before it is too late. (This is why I love our Facebook! It is a wealth of knowledge and great people who are willing to direct you to it.)

On with the Jeep Jam info.

For those of you in the Ohio area who don’t have anything going on June 5th and 6th, you will want to catch this Jeep event!

I posted the flyer above but not sure if you can read it, so visit the Muddy Buddy’s website so you can get all the details on this event. It is open to the public and all Jeeps are welcomed. It is being held on the corner of RT 73 and Harveysburg Road in Harveysburg Ohio. Admission is only $10.00 per Jeep or $15.00 for the entire weekend pass. General admission is $3.00 per person and kids under 12 are FREE. NO CHARGE FOR PARKING!!! It would be a perfect weekend event for an entire family. Muddy Buddy’s Jeep Wrangler Club website is http://www.muddybuddys.net Check them out!!! Muddy Buddys Jeep Wrangler Club is based out of Dayton Ohio.
