Austin jeepers gather in cedar park

July 1, 2015, Cedar Park, Texas — Tires were stacked high Saturday as Ranch Hand Truckfitters hosted their second annual Jeep Jamboree. With over 100 Jeeps of all proportions parked in the back lot of the Cedar Park retail store, Truckfitters used the event to help raise proceeds benefiting the Boot Campaign, a non-profit organization promoting patriotism for America and its military forces.

Bama Brown and Ken Milam of 98.1 KVET manned the microphones, joking with the crowd and entertaining with music. Bar-B-Q sandwiches and sausages were freely passed out to present Jeepers, a donation to the event from Rudy¹s ³Country Store² and Bar-B-Q. Lucky Jeepers won prizes to soup up their summer, gifts from some of the event¹s sponsors: YETI, Ranch Hand and Meyer Distributing. Representatives from YETI, Ranch Hand and Titan Gas Tanks talked shop with guests, and event-goers participated in a range of truck-themed games for free t-shirts, hats, koozies, keychains and more. All Jamboree attendees enjoyed a 20 percent discount on Ranch Hand Truckfitters¹ merchandise, a promotion that included all the items from their wide variety of outdoor, Jeep and truck accessory brands. Austin Jeep People rallied fellow Jeepers into starting a Jeep stack as a crowd of onlookers cheered them on. 

“Ranch Hand was honored to have matched dollar for dollar the money that was raised for the Boot Campaign,” Vice President of Sales Scott McClaugherty said.

While the event brought together a diverse group of Jeeps, from Renegades to Rubicons amongst a sea of custom-created Wranglers, the best part for many was joining the Jeeper camaraderie.
