So, We figured now that we are all nice and broken in with our first blog post, it’s time to get rolling on the next  one (as promised). Check out  some of our award winning designs at last years SEMA Show! Our next post will get started on what ‘s going on with Rugged Ridge at the 2009 SEMA Show. This could get interesting…

A group of 50 journalists and industry experts were charged with the task of judging the most innovative new products introduced into the automotive industry.

Rugged Ridge's first blog post!

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:

Rugged Ridge On FaceBook
Rugged Ridge on Twitter
Rugged Ridge on Myspace
Rugged Ridge on Youtube

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.
