ARIES & CURT Partner with the AAM’s Support of Navy SEAL Foundation

Decked Out Jeep to Venture on Nation-Wide Tour before Presentation to Navy SEAL Foundation

CURT Manufacturing, the leading manufacturer of USA-made towing products, and ARIES Automotive, an innovator of automotive accessories, have joined in supporting The AAM Group in sponsoring “NSF1 Project Jeep” for the Navy SEAL Foundation.

The AAM Group, the largest marketing program for retailers in the specialty automotive aftermarket, was approached by Lee Adelman, Vice President of eCommerce at CURT Manufacturing and ARIES Automotive, with the vision of building a custom Jeep to benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation. The AAM Group embraced Lee's vision and led the project as the developer and builder. Once the project was underway, more than 20 other manufacturers and distributors joined the cause. ARIES donated front and rear modular bumpers, tubular doors and tow hooks; while CURT donated a hitch, ball mount, hitch lock, trailer ball, cargo carrier and bike rack to NSF1 Project Jeep.

The Jeep will be traveling to several events and making a grand appearance in front of the central hall at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Following the NSF1 Project Jeep national tour of appearances, the Jeep will be presented to the Navy SEAL Foundation for their continued use at air shows, recruiting drives, veterans’ events and other promotional engagements.
