Truck Hero to Acquire Omix-ADA

Thought this was interesting. I know a few people over at Rugged Ridge.

This may allow them the ability to bring prices down some and be a bit more competitive with the products they already make... but were copied and are sold by Chinese companies.

Yeah, I noticed...

I always wonder where that $$$ comes from. Omix-ADA is pretty darn big to get acquired. I've wandered in their warehouse and it's like the Great Pyramid in there. Endless. And their Jeep museum; I have to find out from Dave what's to become of that.

Fiat has increasingly been introducing its methods and components into Chrysler plants and products, as if Fiat were an example of quality.

I know people who supply FCA who are alarmed at the cost reduction that is going on across components we don’t see or touch, but remain critical to the operation of its products. That’s part of my beef with FCA products these days —that, and their ever worsening customer service.

I wonder if Omix-ADA sensed a risk of losing much of their Jeep business now that it’s owned by Fiat or, worse, seeing that Fiat was lowering suppliers’ standards, it decided to cash out in time.

The Jeep Museum at Rugged Ridge is safe according to Dave and Henk.

Pictures from last time I was there. Can't mention Jeep Museum and not provide pictures. It's just wrong.

I’ve been in love with Jeep SJs since I was a little kid.

No coincidence that Omix-ADA and Lund are 10 minutes from each other...
