“When Rob and Johnny pulled up the Mr DS18 Jeep’s windshield was totally covered by dead love bugs. It’s that time of the year and those black love bugs are everywhere. Especially for folks traveling at night. With the long drive to California there will certainly be a lot of night hours behind the wheel for Rob and Johnny,” Mike Van Horn offered.

Continuing, Van Horn commented, “Seeing the commitment DS18 is making to exhibit at the Sand Sports Super Show is fantastic. Putting their brand and products in front of thousands of attendees at the show will no doubt create consumer awareness for the category and DS18 brand.”
