Costa Mesa, CA

Every September, thousands of attendees and exhibitors come together at the OC Fairgrounds for the biggest dune and dirt sports EXPO in the world. This three-day event gets attendees up close to the latest and greatest products of Side X Sides, accessories, apparel and more. It has become a tradition for Gibson Performance to make their presence every year and this year was one for the books.

Capturing the attention of all who walked by, Gibson Performance was able to pull some strings to get the DeBerti Hellcat Jeep in the booth this year. This beast took over as spectators “ooh and ahh” at the site of it. This awesome build was seen on Discovery Channel’s “Twin Turbos”.  It is fully equipped with:

• 707 Supercharged Hellcat dodge Engine •Fully built ATD Reid turbo 400 racing transmission and torque converter. •Atlas king of the hammers rock crawling transfer case. •Synergy manufacturing rock crawler suspension. •Dyna trac XD-60 and XD-80 axles. •Fox shocks. •AIM electronics. •fuel safe racing fuel cell. •Aermotive In tank racing fuel pumps and fittings. •Gibson racing exhaust. •Toms rock crawling drive shafts. •Kc led lights. •42” Maxxis rock crawling tires. •17” method beadlock wheels. •Pro eagle jack. •Warn wench. •PRP Racing Seats and harnesses. •PSC complete hydraulic assisted power steering system and gear box. •CBR racing radiator.

This vehicle shook the booth, as we were able to start it up on the last day of Sand Sport for attendees to hear. It definitely turned heads and brought more foot traffic.

The DeBerti Jeep wasn’t the only thing in the booth. Gibson filled the booth will over 7 UTV’s, all were able to be turned on during the event to let the Gibson sound roar. Attendees really enjoyed the fact they could hear the sound of the exhaust and once they did, they were sold. This is the one time a year, Gibson Performance is able to offer specials directly to customers and they made sure to emphasis “Buy it or Regret it”. Most kits sold out, and tons of people walked away with a huge Gibson boxed in hand. We would have to say it was a good day for them.

It was an overall successful event for Gibson Performance. Throughout the show we noticed there was a strong presence of #Gibsonequipped vehicles like the Buck Shot racing vehicle. We are always happy to see rides modified out with the power of Gibson. It was a long three-day event, but always well worth it. As that wraps up Sand Sport Super Show 2018, make sure you mark your calendars for next year. As we will be back, bigger and better than ever.
