LONG BEACH, MS (06.07.22) – During the Jeepin’ The Coast run from June 1st through the 5th DS18 definitely showed all “We Like It Loud”. Amplified Designs was on site and added their newly wrapped 40’ trailer to the DS18 layout. With the DS18 40’ double stack trailer as a showroom plus multiple tents and Jeep demos Mr DS18 Rob and Yery “Cookie” were busy throughout virtually every minute of the event. A large 18’x18’ 2-sided graphic could be seen across the entire event venue to draw Jeepers to see the latest from DS18. The Amplified Designs team of 3 and trailer was right along side.
Kyle Wardell stated, “Our company is just down the road in Slidell LA. At our store we spotlight the Jeep customers and DS18 is our go to brand. Sales at the Jeepin’ The Coast event were strong and Jeepers really lied our new T’s and cps.. Just didn’t have enough JT Soundbars to meet the demand. At our store we may do 10 to 12 Jeep systems each week.”
Mr DS18 Rob Ferro related, “This was one amazing event. We saw so many new faces and fantastic Jeep builds featuring DS18 gear. There were definitely over 3000 Jeeps with even more Jeepers in and around Long Beach for the event. Amplified Designs, our dealer in close by Slidell LA, was on site. Kyle Wardwell and his crew sold a ton of DS18 amps, subs, speakers and tower speakers.”
For the Jeepin’ the Coast event Amplified Designs rushed a complete graphic wrap on their 40’ trailer. Wardell relayed, “Austin Douroux absolutely did a killer job on the trailer wrap. He completed the wrap in just 21 hours and the trailer was a standout at the event right next to the DS18 40’ double stack trailer and showroom.”
Long Beach is a town of less than 20,000 along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. During the event the town was packed with Jeepers having a great time and Jeeps packed the streets and main drag in downtown. Vendor Village was located adjacent to downtown and very close to the beach.
“The Vendor Village wrapped Saturday afternoon and all got prepared for the parade downtown. That parade was like Mardi Gras but for Jeepers and Jeeps. As an event sponsor DS18 lit up the ‘Shake the Street’ Parade. Again showing all at DS18 ‘We Like It Loud,’” Ferro stated.
During the ‘Shake the Street’ Parade DS18 sponsored 4 events. There were 30 Jeeps in the contest with winners receiving prizes for Best Sound, Best Install, Best Self-Made and Best Overall.
“The Jeepin’ The Coast was definitely a terrific event and we feel DS18 owns in market in Mississippi. Amplified Designs is adding to that every day,” Ferro offered.
Concluding Wardell related, “Our Amplified Designs location is just 44 miles down the road from Long Beach. At the Jeepin’ the Coast event we scheduled some jobs and anticipate more business from partnering with DS18 at the event.”
