Rancho® Performance Suspension & Shocks Brand Celebrates 60th Anniversary

Legendary Suspension Brand Continues to Deliver Innovation, Product Leadership to Off-Road Industry

Las Vegas, Nov. 4, 2014 – The Rancho® brand – an iconic brand in the off-road industry since 1955 – will kickoff its 60th anniversary celebration at the 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas this November. The Rancho booth (Central Hall, No. 25133) will include a 2014 Jeep Wrangler JK and 1952 Jeep Willys that will feature an array of Rancho systems, shocks and accessories.

First launched by Clarence Shook as the family-owned “Rancho Jeep Supply” in Los Angeles, the Rancho brand will celebrate its 60-year-long history rich in product innovation and involvement in the off-road industry during 2015.
