Anyone taking their XK to Bantam this year? I don't live too far and may head into Butler for the Invasion on Friday night, but prob won't be participating this year in the actual festival. I was just wondering if any of you guys are going to represent our awesome Jeeps in the masses of Wranglers that will be everywhere.
It's in Butler PA. June 9th - 11th weekend. This is a family event and there are tons of things to do each day with vendors everywhere. All of the major Jeep vendors set up at this one. I don't know how much vendor support we would get at a festival like this, but it's still nice to look around.

Check it out....

Sounds cool Burns, post some pics if you go.

I'm moving this to the Trail Runs / Meet & Greets sub forum.

Quick update from this morning....
I had to go down there and do an on-site registration this morning since I missed the online deadline. I didn't see a ton of Jeeps, but I saw about 300. Of those 300, about 290 were Wranglers. No other XKs. I'll let you know after tonight's 1200 registered Jeeps for the Butler Invasion. If I see any, I'll get some pics.


2010 XK 3.7L Sport
144,000 and counting.
2" lift (ordered)
1.5" spacers (going on w lift)
Front tint 35%

It was a decent time. Tons of Jeeps. It took about 45 minutes in Jeep bumper to bumper traffic to get to Main St...


Once we did get in, they were running out of parking, so we ended up on a side street after driving down the middle of the Main for a good half hour. I did hear some nice comments about the Commanders as the people were walking inches beside us as we were driving.
We walked around for a while and I only found one other XK...




It was done up nice, had about a 3inch spacer in the front, and spring lift in the back, Hemi, Matrix front bumper, basket, and shackles on the rear. He was participating on Saturday according to the sticker in the windshield, but he didn't have his info for the invasion on his windshield like most others did. So I don't know where he's from or what year it was.

We ended up going into one of the local breweries on Main Street -Reclamation Brewery, to eat dinner. Good food and good brews. Then we headed out.
Next year with my lift on, I may head down on Saturday or Sunday for some trail rides, but I prob won't do the invasion again.
