Members from Jeep groups such as Screw City Jeeps, Forrest City Jeeps and Vixen Jeep Club were all in attendance.
"At first it was just going to be a wing and beer Jeep show," Jeep owner Crystal Soltow said.
"It just turned out to be one big jeep show."

Awards for vintage Jeep, best modified Jeep, oldest Jeep and sponsored Jeeps were handed out.
The groups are looking to host another Jeep Jam in the Fall.
