Merry Christmas SFWDA Jeep Santa

 On behalf of everyone one of us within the Southern Four Wheel Drive Association, we would like to cordially wish each and every one of our Members and your families a very Merry Christmas and Happy Winter Holiday Season! 

As our Jeep was a-jeeping
Crawling rock and slinging mud,
As our wheels were a-wheeling
And singing Thud-Thud-Thud.

As our Wrangler was a-wrangling
And our Air bags were a-sway,
We thought how awesome it would be
If our Jeep were Santa’s Sleigh.

So we called to the North Pole
From our direct line.
We spoke to Santa’s Engineer
And told him what we had in mind!

Genius! He exclaimed
Let me run it by the Big Man!
Santa loved the idea.
He thought it was grand!

The Elves began building
With fenders and grill,
Adding BFG Tires
TERAFLEX Skid plates and
all the RUGGED-RIDGE Frills.

It was Red and It was shiny
And it had HIGH BEAM-OFF ROAD lights.
The Jeep had a 13 inch lift kit
And it looked like it could take flight.
But how would this Jeep Sleigh
Lift up in the sky?
It is unbeatable on ground
But how can it fly?

Christmas Eve came too soon
And it still couldn’t fly.
Santa’s Elves and Engineer
Had big tears in their eyes.

When what to their wondering
Eyes did appear...
But Santa with his toy bag
And all his TOMS’s 4x4 jeep gear.

He climbed into his Sleigh
And said “Step aside!”
The Jeep began flying
”Let the Big Man Ride!”

As he locked in his WARN lockers
And flew out of sight.
Merry Christmas to all
Echoed all through the night.

Merry Christmas to all, and
to all a good night!

"The Winch that Saved Christmas"

The wind was quite heavy on one Christmas Eve,
Santa traveled by ground, behind schedule, if you believe.
He was cruising through California in his mighty red sleigh,
And said, "If I don't hurry, there will be no Christmas Day."
Blitzen turned around and said, "Santa, you won't fail,
We Reindeer found a short-cut called the Rubicon Trail."
They headed for the trail, but when they got there,
The rocks looked much bigger than they did from the air.
Up hill the reindeer struggled to make the sleigh go,
And getting around those rocks made the progress quite slow.
They tried really hard but there just wasn't a way,
To get axle articulation from an old wooden sleigh.
Where the rocks are quite steep, Santa ran out of luck,
Even with nine reindeer, he finally got stuck.
The Rubicon Trail is no place for a sleigh full of toys,
Santa sighed, "I've failed all those good girls and boys!"
"They'll rise in the morning, leave their rooms and say,
'Under the tree, it is empty, is there NO CHRISTMAS DAY?'"
They couldn't budge the sleigh, no matter how hard they tried,
Santa felt so hopeless he sat down and cried.
Suddenly in the distance came a loud clanking sound,
Like an old wind-up toy that's been too tightly wound.
They saw it come over a boulder with a creep,
A rock crawlin', mud boggin' Jeep.
It's fenders were dented, and it's sides were all scratched,
The top had big holes that hadn't been patched.
But its tires were big ones, 37 inch,
And on it's front bumper was a shiny new winch.
"If you're taking the Rubicon," the Jeep started to say,
"Go with a group and get mud tires for that sleigh."
Santa said, "I'm sorry, I feel like a jerk,"
The old Jeep said nothing, it just went to work
The sleigh was unstuck and free in a cinch,
Thanks to that Jeep and it's shiny new winch.
Santa went on to fulfill Christmas day,
With the old Jeep leading the way.
Now many years have passed and the reindeer are older,
They don't fly very well when the weather gets colder.
But Santa's still out there every year without fail,
Fulfilling his promise in the air and on the trail.
On Christmas Eve, if you chance to look in the sky,
You just might see him in that old Jeep.
