LONG BEACH, July 18, 2012 – It’s spooky how much off-road enthusiasts and “4x4” performance addicts can save on some of the performance industry’s top ride control products through the Rancho “Shocktober” promotion.

Available at participating performance retailers and installers nationwide between September 1 and October 31, 2012, the Rancho “Shocktober” promotion will give enthusiasts who purchase four qualifying Rancho shocks for the same vehicle a mail-in rebate for the cost of one unit. The Rancho products included in the promotion are RS9000XL® shocks, Rancho quickLIFT™ units, Rancho RS7000MT™ monotube shocks, and Rancho RS5000® shocks.

“It’s going to be an epic fall for enthusiasts replacing their shocks with premium, off-road-capable Rancho units,” said Chris Gauss, national sales manager, performance products, Tenneco.

Consumers can scan the QR code on program posters at service and parts locations to receive rebate forms. Consumers also can complete their rebate submissions online during program dates.

The rebate does not include installation/labor costs and offer is good only on qualifying products. For a complete list of qualifying Rancho ride control units, please visit www.gorancho.com after September 1, 2012.

Rebate will be equal to the lowest cost unit (up to the current Rancho suggested list price). Rebate check will only be valid for 90 days from its issue date. Rebate offer may not be combined with any other discount, offer or rebate. One rebate per household.
