Nation-Wide Navy SEAL Jeep Tour to Stop in Eau Claire

NSF1 Jeep Decked with CURT, ARIES and Other Brands Supporting Navy SEAL Foundation

CURT Manufacturing, the leading manufacturer of USA-made towing products, and ARIES Automotive, a fast-paced marketer and innovator of truck, Jeep, SUV and CUV accessories, teamed up with The AAM Group last year to sponsor "NSF1 Project Jeep" for the Navy SEAL Foundation. On April 4, the finished build, the "NSF1", will be making its way up to Eau Claire, WI to stop at CURT Manufacturing headquarters.

More than 25 manufacturers and distributors donated products to bring the NSF1 Project Jeep to life. CURT Manufacturing was one of those, contributing a receiver hitch, ball mount, hitch lock, trailer ball, cargo carrier and bike rack to the cause. ARIES donated front and rear modular bumpers, tubular doors and tow hooks.

Since fall of last year, the NSF1 has been touring the nation, making stops at SEMA 2015, the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab and more. On the afternoon of April 4, CURT associates will get to see the Jeep first-hand as it makes a stop at CURT headquarters. Greg Griffith of The AAM Group and retired Navy SEAL Murray Casey will be there to meet CURT associates and show off the hard work that has gone into customizing the NSF1. There will be cupcakes, balloons, T-shirts and local media coverage.

Joe Thompson, Sr. VP of Sales & Marketing for CURT Manufacturing said, "We are very proud of our association with the Navy SEAL Foundation and the fine work they do. We are honored to welcome recently retired Navy SEAL, SOCM Murray Casey, Jr., and our NSF1 Jeep partners from The AAM Group to the CURT plant."

After the visit to Eau Claire, the NSF1 will resume its nation-wide tour. Following the tour, 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.
