Creative Uses for Old Tires Lawrence KS

Bald can be beautiful, and useful too! First of all, if you’re looking for a way to dispose of your tires, please don’t just ditch them out in the woods somewhere or burn them. Not only will it stink up the entire neighborhood, but it also is horrible for the environment. But, if you’re looking for some creative ideas for your old tires when you can no longer drive on them, then you’ve come to the right place. We have ideas for all ages.

Old truck tires can double as a coffee table and a storage space. Either place the tire directly on the floor, or find supporting legs to elevate your tire-table. A cover won’t be hard to find, if you can use an old table top from a thrift shop or have a piece cut out to fit the circumference of the tire.

The reverse could also be done. I had a few friends who used four old tires, blackened and repainted, as the base and placed a square piece of glass on top. Simple enough and actually turned out surprisingly well for a man-cave. Read the rest of this entry »

Spring driving safety tips

Spring Driving Tips Lawrence KS

spring drivingMarch 21st has officially passed so that means spring is finally here…even though it doesn’t exactly feel like it is. The roads will finally be able to warm up and return to a somewhat smoother state, rather than bulged out causing a bumpy ride wherever you venture. (The roads in my parent’s neighborhood have gotten so bad from the cold and ice, I actually got airborne riding in the back seat of their SUV…with a seat-belt on.) Read the rest of this entry »

2014 ram 1500 eacodieselWithin the next couple of months, plan to see an influx of 2014 Ram 1500 trucks on backroads and highways. The EcoDiesel option has proven to be worth the extra dollars now in order to save money in the future. To give you an idea of just how popular the 2014 Ram 1500 trucks have been, within the matter of about a week, (Feb 7-10 to be exact), Ram Truck received over 8,000 EcoDiesel orders.

Also, within the first round of Ram truck orders, more than half of them were EcoDiesel orders. People are going crazy for them. It’s no wonder why though, this is what customers have been requesting, and now that Ram Truck listened, the consumers aren’t just standing back and smiling, they’re snatching them up.

‘Baby Jeep’ Expected to be Unveiled in Geneva Next Week

By emarketing | Posted in Jeep on Thursday, February 27th, 2014 at 1:16 PM

We know for sure that the Baby Jeep will not look like this.

Baby Jeep Geneva Motor Show Debut

A long while back we had announced Jeep was in the works of a brand new model which has since been dubbed the “Baby Jeep.” There hasn’t been an official name given to the model yet, and Jeep has remained extremely tight-lipped about what it will consist of, but we are expected to find out more when the Baby Jeep Geneva Motor Show debut takes place next week.

All we know right now is that the Baby Jeep will be a subcompact SUV built on the same platform as the Fiat 500X, which is a taller version of the Fiat 500L which will be released in Europe. Word quickly spread that it will be named the “Jeepster,” but Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has already stated that it will be given a different name. To be honest, we find it kind of strange that Jeep has even kept the name secret. If they’re holding off on the details to build anticipation, it’s definitely working. Read the rest of this entry »

Prepping the snow pile for the Briggs Auto Meltdown Madness giveaway.

Briggs Meltdown Madness Giveaway Lawrence KS

Although it doesn’t really seem like it, spring is on its way and it won’t be long before all of that unsightly snow is melted, but simply waiting for it to melt is no fun, which is why we’re bringing back one of our most popular events. That’s right, it is time once again for the Briggs Meltdown Madness giveaway in Lawrence, KS, and if you’re in the market for a free car, we suggest you pay attention.

We have held this event in the past, but if you’re not familiar with how it works, let us fill you in quickly. Outside of our showroom we have a gigantic pile of snow, and on top of that snow pile is a 2009 Jeep Patriot, which is the car that you have a chance to win. All you have to do is guess the date and the time that the snow melts enough to allow all four wheels of the Patriot to touch the ground. The person with the guess closest to the actual date and time will win the Jeep. Read the rest of this entry »

Tuttle Creek ORV Park Provides Numerous Off-Road Trails

By emarketing | Posted in Community on Wednesday, February 12th, 2014 at 10:32 AM

Tuttle Creek ORV Park


There are numerous trails of varying difficulty at the Tuttle Creek ORV Park.

Here at Briggs Chrysler we sell a ton of off road-capable vehicles including a wide variety of Jeep models, and we are also conveniently located near the Tuttle Creek ORV Park, which provides you with a chance to put your off-road vehicle through the ultimate test.

As you can see from that map that we have pictured, there are a ton of different trails that you can take your off-road vehicle (ORV) through. Each of the trails is rated for difficulty, so you have the choice of taking the easy, moderate or hard route. The terrain consists of steep hill climbs, rocky sections, creek crossings, mud puddles, deep ruts and sharp turns.

If you’ve ever been a part of the Briggs Jeep Jamboree, you are already familiar with the park. It’s where we’ve held the event for the past 22 years. You may also be familiar with the park if you are a member of the Flint Hills Jeep Club of Lawrence, KS which hosts a number of meetings and events at the park. However, if you’re not familiar with the park, we really suggest that you check it out.

As the Tuttle Creek ORV Park is located closer to Manhattan, KS, it is a bit of a drive for all of us Lawrence residents, but we can assure you that it’s well-worth it. From the Briggs Chrysler showroom it’s roughly an hour and forty-five minutes away, but the drive is a great chance to warm up your car before it gets a real workout at the park.
