Build converts stock Jeep into show vehicle during LTAA event

Aug 21, 2012

Thousands of light-truck enthusiasts watched as a 2012 Jeep Rubicon was transformed from “stock-to-show” in front of their eyes during the recent LTAA Jeep Build. The event was conducted Aug. 3-5 during the Carlisle Truck Nationals as part of the third annual LTAA New Products Showcase.

LTAA member Bob Smeigh, owner of RV 4 Wheel & Performance Automotive, Mechanicsburg, Pa., not only donated the project vehicle, but also valuable shop time to have two of his professional installers perform the live transformation. All of the products used in the build were donated from LTAA manufacturers.

“What can I say about Bob Smeigh and his guys? Not only did they help show the quality and value of LTAA-member company products, but also demonstrated complete professionalism and attention to detail during every step,” commented George Lathouris of Keystone Automotive Operations. “They really set the bar high for any future projects like this.”
