Hens to become ‘Toledo Mud Crawlers’ during Jeep Fest

Press Staff Writer

        Two iconic Toledo brands join forces to celebrate the 2019 Jeep Fest.
        Both the Mud Hens and the Jeep are fundamental to Toledo’s heritage and for the first time ever, the Toledo Mud Hens will become the “Toledo Mud Crawlers,” Aug. 9-11.
        As the “Mud Crawlers,” the Mud Hens will carry the well-earned image of Jeep’s mud trashing and rugged rock crawling capability on specialty jerseys during Toledo Jeep Fest weekend.
        The Mud Hens will wear special Mud Crawlers jerseys during all three nights of Jeep Fest, sponsored by NSG. Select game worn jerseys will be sold in a silent auction on Friday, Aug. 9 and Saturday, Aug. 10 with proceeds to benefit Sunshine Communities.
        For nearly eight decades, Jeep has been part of Toledo. Beginning in 1941 when Willys-Overland won a significant United States Military contract to design the Willys MB, a four-wheel drive utility vehicle that was manufactured throughout World War II.
        Today, Toledo is the only place in the world making the Jeep Wrangler and the newly introduced Jeep Gladiator pickup. The Toledo Assembly Complex, one of the region’s largest and most modern manufacturing plants, produces the Wrangler in two- and four-door body styles and the Gladiator in a four-door unit.
        Fans attending the Friday, Aug. 9 game will have the chance to take home a Jeep bobblehead. The first 1,500 fans through the gates on Friday will receive a special edition off-road Muddy the Mud Hen bobblehead featuring Muddy driving an all-new Toledo built Jeep Gladiator. The off-road Muddy bobblehead is presented by Corner Dental.
