Enthusiast-First Suspension & Shock Company Enters into Sponsorship for Third Consecutive Year
Los Angeles, Tues., Jan. 22, 2019 – The Rancho performance suspension and shocks brand of Tenneco has again partnered with Jeep Jamboree (JJUSA) in 2019 as the official event sponsor for its third consecutive year.
“Jeep Jamboree USA continues to connect us with thousands of avid enthusiasts and Jeepers through their adventure-driven events,” said Chris Gauss, director, performance products, Tenneco. “If you look back into Rancho’s history, you’ll see our roots in the off-road Jeep events that brought together the outdoors, adventure, enthusiasts and Jeeps…identical to the popular Jeep Jamboree events today.”
At select 2019 JJUSA events, a Rancho-outfitted Jeep Wrangler JL will be available for participants to see Rancho products firsthand on and off the Jeep Jamboree event routes as it showcases the latest Rancho suspension technologies.
Participants also will be able to experience the Rancho-sponsored Jeep Jamboree Outdoor Garage, where event attendees can see Rancho suspension parts on display and ask questions. Attendees will be able to experience the events from afar online at www.GoRancho.com through the Rancho 360 VR experience throughout the season.
“The Rancho team is truly an enthusiast-first organization. Through their sponsorship over the course of three years plus at-event support, they’ve certainly enhanced our participants’ experiences through educational initiatives like the Jeep Jamboree Outdoor Garage,” said Pearse Umlauf, president and CEO, Jeep Jamboree USA. “The Outdoor Garage is staffed by industry experts who provide helpful off-road preparedness tips and guidance to participants about vehicle modifications. The Rancho team has dedicated an entire event team to staffing this interactive product display vehicle at more than 20 upcoming events. This truly gives Jeep enthusiasts a unique experience and the ability to experience Rancho products in the field.”
Since 1955, the Rancho brand has been synonymous with Jeeps and its history is entrenched in innovative solutions and product engineering specific to Jeeps.
