Freedom Ford Has Landed at SEMA!

Freedom Ford Has Landed at SEMA!

The AAM Group’s “Freedom Ford” project truck has taken its place at booth SU02 at the SEMA Show after a 2,200-mile, multi-day trek that started in northeast Tennessee at AAM Group™ headquarters and wound its way through Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before finally arriving for exhibition in Las Vegas for the anticipated automotive aftermarket extravaganza.

Freshly prepped, polished, and shined for the show, Freedom Ford is a 2016 Ford F-150 wrapped in custom black digital camo blended with an American flag graphic. Boasting 35” tires and a 7” lift, Freedom Ford is an imposing presence and a patriotic tribute to the hard-earned liberty we enjoy in the United States thanks to the vigilance and sacrifices of our most courageous citizens.

See It in Person

Freedom Ford was outfitted by many of the biggest names in the truck aftermarket, headlined by primary sponsor Lund International. SEMA Show attendees can get an up-close view of Freedom Ford by stopping by event space SU02.

Rancho: RS5000X Shocks

Rancho: RS5000X Shocks

Inside Rancho’s new RS5000X shock is a unique, patented valving system and advanced compression functionality that will improve your vehicle’s overall on- and off-road performance.

So, what’s “progressive engagement valving?” At lower speeds or in the earlier stages of the shock’s travel, an eccentric disc in the valve shin stacks will engage the valving at lower frequencies, helping to control the energy of motion as the cycle of the shock increases or decreases in its action. In practical terms, when hitting a pothole or other nonstandard road element, this technology allows for early flow of fluid, which helps to reduce harsh initial impacts and minimize rough rides.

Features

  • Progressive engagement valving.
  • Tuned compression control valve.
  • Enlarged 2.25” twin tube body.
  • 60 psi gas-pressurized shocks.
  • 16 mm nitro-carburized rod.
  • Full-displaced 35 mm bore.
  • 1-3/8” sintered iron piston.
  • Rebound bumper and protective boot.
  • Black, natural rubber bushings.
  • Low-friction, self-lubricating seal.
  • Double-welded loops.
  • Limited lifetime warranty.

ARIES Jeep Build to Benefit Folds of Honor and Gold Star Teen Adventure

ARIES Jeep Build to Benefit Folds of Honor and Gold Star Teen Adventures

In 2015, The AAM Group partnered with ARIES Automotive to build the NSF1 project Jeep, which benefitted the Navy SEAL Foundation. The experience reinforced how important and powerful it is to give back to our military personnel and their families, who give so much to protect our freedom. This year, ARIES has partnered with Starwood Customs and KEG Media for a very special Jeep build, this one intended to benefit Folds of Honor and Gold Star Teen Adventures. Folds of Honor works to help fill the financial gaps experienced by more than one million dependents adversely affected by war. Gold Star Teen Adventures enables healing through programs that develop character and leadership skills for the youth of personnel who are lost in the line of duty.

ARIES Jeep Build to Benefit Folds of Honor and Gold Star Teen Adventure

In 2004, during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Army SPC Stephen P. Downing II (assigned to 2nd Battalion, 17th Field Artillery) was killed by enemy fire while conducting combat operations in Ramadi, Iraq. SPC Downing left behind his family—Leann, Taylor, and Stephen—who are the owners of this Jeep and have directly benefited from the help and support provided by Folds of Honor and Gold Star Teen Adventures. ARIES outfitted the Jeep with several of its new and classic products, including front and rear bumpers, hood and windshield light mounts, flat fenders and inner fender liners, LED lighting, a swing-away tire carrier, tube doors, security cargo lid, rocker steps, StyleGuard floor liners, and more.

The Jeep will be unveiled at the ARIES booth preview event on October 31 at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV.
