AAM GROUP PARTNERS WITH GREG GRIFFITH AND MANCAVE DESIGNS IN 2017 SEMA PROJECT VEHICLE: RENEGADE III

Renegade III Greg Griffith AAM Group

October 26, 2017 (JOHNSON CITY, Tenn.) — The AAM Group™, the largest program distribution group in the SEMA marketplace, is jointly announcing the 2017 SEMA project vehicle Renegade III: a 1974 Jeep CJ-5 that has been taken to the ground and reconstructed with modern enhancements any 1970s owner would have loved. Renegade III is being outfitted by the biggest names in the automotive aftermarket—most of them sponsoring manufacturers of the Total Truck Centers™ or Parts Pro™ jobber marketing program. The Jeep will make its exhibition debut at the SEMA Show in Booth SL08 in the South Hall, Lower Level.

Renegade III was conceived, designed, and managed by AAM Program Sales Manager Greg Griffith and built by the Mancave Designs team. In addition to the modern upgrades, OE enhancements, and custom touches, the Jeep includes several “Hidden Mickeys”: Mickey Mouse silhouettes placed throughout the build. Griffith originally bought the Jeep as a modest cruiser for his wife, a former Disney cast member and enthusiastic fan, and Renegade III exists as both a salute to her and a one-of-a-kind vehicle that brings together two iconic brands.

“One of the best things about this project was that it allowed us to include both our truck and performance manufacturers on one build,” said Griffith. “The support they gave us was simply outstanding. This build should have taken four years under normal circumstances, but our team pulled it together in just over nine months. I am very proud of this Jeep, as she continues our tradition of bringing unique looks and stances to SEMA—plus, blending old with new and showcasing some really crafty parts.”

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.

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.
