JC Whitney kicked off the 2017 show season and our Wrench and Ride promotion at Texas Motor Speedway March at the Unlimited Off-Road Expo. While the weekend weather was cool, the Speedway infield was filled with Jeep and Truck enthusiasts, vendors and tons of personalized Jeeps and Trucks from all over Texas and with some visitors coming in from Oklahoma.
The crowd was happy to see the JC Whitney crew and spent time perusing the parts and accessories on display. Our recently updated Centennial Jeep was popular with the crowd and sported the latest in interior and exterior accessories from Wrench and Ride Sponsors Crown, Powerstop, Coverking, Aries, Curt and Rancho. Our Wrench and Ride blog will be updated with stories on the latest installs.
While in Texas we also installed a K&N cold air intake a 2014 Ford F-150 FX4 and helped the twin-turbo 3.5L V6 breathe easier and produce another 10+hp and 11+ lb. ft. of torque!

Next stop on the event tour is the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah-if you love the off-road life you must attend EJS at least once. To see the whole town taken over by Jeepers is nearly as impressive as the beautiful vistas and challenging trails crisscrossing Moab, look for the JC Whitney Jeep around town and on the trails and please stop by the JC Whitney tent at the Vendor Expo April 13-14 We will be offering excellent deals and make sure and enter our free raffle with prizes from our sponsors. See you there!
