So, it’s that time of year again. Anyone who is anyone who loves cars is talking about what will be going on at the 2009 SEMA Show. We started off our blog with some SEMA Show history where Rugged Ridge rocked out and took home several awards last year for our designs, now it’s time for Rugged Ridge to start talking about this years show. Let’s start off with something light—shall we? Our 17×9 Aluminum Wheels for 2007-10 Jeep Wrangler (JK ) are pictured in the first edition of this year’s SEMA Show Daily Guide on page 23.
Here’s a little blurb from the Rugged Ridge suits awesome cool guys on the wheels of steel:
Rugged Ridge is proud to introduce the toughest new design in custom wheels for 2007-09 Wrangler. This Hub-Centric design exactly centers the wheel over the hub providing the best fit possible and the proper clearance for brake rotors, steering components and suspension. Better fit, no wheel vibration! Stainless steel button-head socket cap screws around the perimeter of the outer wheel face give a great 3-piece look, and also let you accessorize with our optional trim ring. Each wheel includes a UV-treated polished center cap that replicates a manual hub for that off road look. Available in four finishes: Satin Black Powdercoated, Satin Black Powdercoated with Machined Lip, Silver Powdercoated, and Dual-Stage Polished Chrome. The durable powdercoated finish gives an ultra-hard finish for long life and a great look. The chrome finish uses a dual-stage process to give a deep reflective mirror-like chrome finish that commands attention. Rugged Ridge wheels have been independently tested and certified to meet/exceed SAE J2530 standards for wheel strength and durability. Limited lifetime structural warranty and 1 year finish warranty (see warranty information for details and limitations).

Helloooooooo Rugged Ridge fanatics! First of all let me take the time to tell you thanks for following us, adding us or friending us because if you hadn’t, there is no way you would even know about this blog post! As you can see, we have finally made our presence known in the social networking world. We figured it would be a good place to interact with the people who buy our parts. It’s also going to be a place for lots of contests, prizes and chats with engineers (among other things). If you happen upon any fun things that you think we should try out on our pages, please feel free to shout at us and let us know. We are always open to good ideas. Also, please share our pages with your friends. We would love to add them to our big, fat rugged family.
OK, so we know that you are on at least one of our pages, but I will list the others below. It’s IMPERATIVE that you add us on the other pages that you haven’t already (OK maybe not imperative, but may benefit you). Some of the contest announcements will only appear on certain pages. We do this because we want to make sure you are paying attention. So here they are:
Now that all of that is out of the way, keep your eyes peeled for our next posts where we will be giving you some of our SEMA show history as a build up to this years SEMA show. We know some of you can’t be there, so we will make sure you get all of the pics and gossip here. Good looking out, right?
So now we have come to the end of our very first blog post. Thanks for reading and hopefully subscribing and we will see you out there in social networking land (and here on our blog, of course).
Rugged Ridge Out.
