Keith Bailey

Owner
At the age of 17, Keith Bailey got his first 4×4,a 1976 CJ. Born and raised in Gardendale, Alabama, Keith rode the trails of Gardendale and Mt. Olive learning not only how to drive the trails but how to work on his Jeep. In 1984 he bought a 84 CJ7 from Jim Skinner and with friends, Keith would and ride the local trails, some that are around to this day. Later, to make things more exciting, the group would cut down trees and clear their own paths.

In 1990 Keith began to buy used Jeeps to part out and ended up with the foundation of what would become in 1992, The Jeep Connection. With his home town service and expert knowledge of off-roading, business took off. With a name change to The Off-Road Connection, Keith quit his job of 12 years and turned his hobby into a full time profession. In 1996 The Off-Road Connection moved to Fultondale Alabama where it is located today and delivers the same quality home town service that has made Keith one of the most well known and respected members of his industry in Alabama as well as the South East.

Keith, with the support from Debbie, his wife, and daughter Karsen, has become an integral part of the off-roading sport. Involved with many of the activities at Gray Rock ORV and a supporter of local 4×4 clubs, Keith is the first and only person many go to for their Off-Road Connection.
