Dawn LeMaire, who orchestrated the Jeep Show N Shine commented “The turnout of Jeep enthusiasts was terrific. Everyone wanted to show their Jeep, show the upgrades they had made and crank their systems. It reminded us of the exciting crank it up days back in the day. Also, many people came into the store and we are preparing quotes for several big jobs.”

Dave Gill, SMS, was on site and related “The event was absolutely incredible. The threat of bad weather under the very dark skies did not keep Jeep enthusiasts way. We showed the Bazooka Party Barge Speakers to many of site and they were very impressed.”
