Attendees at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas Nevada had the opportunity to enter a drawing at the JRi Shocks booth for a complete Hydraulic Ride Height system. William Hodge of Houston Texas was the lucky winner who couldn’t believe it when notified by JRi staff following the show.

“I almost deleted the email as spam,” said Hodge “I had no expectations of actually winning the contest and have been thinking about it since!”

Hodge is nearing completion of a ’69 Camaro project that has been underway since 2010. The car was a gift from his parents back in 1997 and has been a part of his life for over 17 years. As luck would have it, the Camaro is equipped with Detroit Speed suspension and JRi's baseline shock package so the JRi Ride Height system makes for an easy addition and a welcome upgrade.
