Renegade III: CURT

For the third consecutive year, The AAM Group™ and Total Truck Centers™ are sending a custom build to SEMA. This year is the Renegade III: a 1974 Jeep CJ-5 that we’ve taken to the ground and reconstructed with all of the enhancements we would love to have seen back in in the seventies.

The build was conceived, designed, and managed by AAM Program Sales Manager Greg Griffith, with help from Atomic City 4×4 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and Man Cave Designs. It was made possible thanks to the support of our many valued Total Truck Centers™ vendor partners.

In this video, we take a look at the following products from CURT:
