Kelderman Air Suspension Systems announces partnership with MMA fighter and actor, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. Kelderman has modified Jackson’s Ford Super Duty with complete product line-up and announces promotion with the fighter.
During the 2009 SEMA Show, the world’s largest automotive trade show that represents a $32 Billion a year industry, Rampage Jackson visited the Kelderman booth. “I fell in love with the unique adjustability of their trucks, where you just push a button and are either riding eye ball to eye ball with semi drivers, or so low to the ground you can easily help your lady into the passenger seat,” said Jackson.
Rampage Jackson, former UFC Light-Heavyweight title holder, who is playing the role of the new B.A. Baracus in the upcoming June 11 release of 20th Century Fox’s, “THE A TEAM,” recently spent the day at the Kelderman plant to retrieve his fully outfitted Ford Super Duty. “When you’re doing a truck for Rampage, it has to make a statement,” said Jeff Kelderman, Vice President of Kelderman Air Ride. “We installed one of our 10-12″ fully-adjustable air suspension lift kits complete with Kelderman private label shocks, AccuAir air management with TouchPad interface control and all of the whistles and bells. We custom made some one-off parts specifically for Rampage to make his truck unique.”
“As soon as I got home, the first thing I did was take the kids for an outing in what they excitedly screamed was the coolest ride ever,” continued Jackson.
Rampage was impressed by the transformation of his Super Duty and is in negotiations for Kelderman to build him an A-Team van, as a replica to the original GMC van driven in the series, but with a Kelderman twist. As part of the partnership Jackson will be “the prize” for a sweepstakes that Kelderman will promote.
The promotion will call for contestants to visit the Kelderman website to enter the promotion. The promotion prize package includes the opportunity to fly out to California and drive the finished A-Team van to Rampage’s home, deliver it, and ride along on his first test drive of the new vehicle. The winner will then attend a dinner that evening with Rampage Jackson, Vice President of Kelderman Air Ride, Jeff Kelderman, and Toyo Tire’s Manager of Events and Motorsports, Stan Chen. More details will be released on www.keldermanairride.com.
