SEMA 2013: Jeep Wrangler named ‘Hottest 4×4-SUV’ 4 Years Running

November 6, 2013


November 5, 2013 , Las Vegas – The Jeep® Wrangler was recognized as the “Hottest 4×4-SUV” for a fourth consecutive year at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) trade show in Las Vegas. The SEMA Award recognizes vehicle models that specialty equipment manufacturers believe are the best platforms for accessorization and that showcase the year’s coolest products.

SEMA President and CEO Chris Kersting presented the award to Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“Consumers are increasingly interested in customizing vehicles, so having an accessory-friendly platform is important,” said Kersting. “The Jeep Wrangler has consistently ranked Number One as the Hottest 4×4-SUV since the inception of the SEMA Award, a clear reflection of its versatility.”


“It’s amazing to have the Jeep Wrangler recognized for a fourth straight year by SEMA with this award,” Gorlier said. “The Wrangler is our most accessorized vehicle and to see it consistently winning accolades is a demonstration of the quality of the vehicle and the work that Mopar has put in to develop accessories and quality Jeep Performance Parts. Enthusiasts will be happy to know we have just added new offerings to our more than 300 performance parts and accessories already available for this vehicle to provide even more options for customization.”

Mopar and Jeep recently created Jeep Performance Parts as a portfolio of high-end, hard-core Jeep parts including axles, lift kits, bumpers, winches, skid plates and suspension components. These performance parts will offer factory-engineered solutions to increase off-road performance.

Featured Jeep: 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon

February 8, 2013

From Andrew in Sacramento, CA:


This is my first Jeep and WOW. This trip to Winnemucca for a Chukar hunt was my opportunity to really see what it could do. My Rubicon effortlessly tread up anything I stuck in front of it. Whether the trail was icy, rocky or muddy – it just didn’t matter. Where the other vehicles in my group had to stop I just kept on going. I guess my favorite thing was the sense of freedom that comes with the ability to go anywhere on the mountain. Can’t wait for next year!!

Congrats on the new Jeep! Winnemucca (wherever the heck that is) looks beautiful and I hope you you shot lots of Chukars (whatever the heck they are)!  😉 – JW

New Product Alert! The Trek Light Go Anywhere Hammock.

August 10, 2012

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

-Ferris Bueller c.1986

So Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was on TV last night (again) and of course I had to watch it (again). It was hilarious as usual, but when we got to the part with the famous quote listed above, I came to a certain realization.  How is it Mid-August already? I’d better slow this Summer down in a hurry!


That’s where our newest and one of the most fun products we’ve ever carried comes in; The Trek Light Go Anywhere Hammock . Sharing the same love of the outdoors and go anywhere spirit as Jeep, this awesome and affordable hammock is a great way to squeeze a little more fun out of your time in the wilderness and will help you slow life down just a little bit.

Measuring at a HUGE 6’5″ wide and holding up to 400lbs., the Trek Light Double Hammock (combined with the Go Anywhere Rope Kit) easily ties up between two Jeeps, between your Jeep’s Rollbar and a nearby tree, or even between two trees at your campsite. The entire system compress into an included carrying pouch and weighs in at a super light 20 ounces, so there is no need to worry about it taking up too much space in your Jeep or backpack. It also makes a great gift for the Jeeper, Hiker, Hunter or Outdoorsman in your life!


Interesting choice of campsites, fellas…
