Former Nth Degree Asset Purchase

American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) to Pick Up Significant Amount of Product Line from Recently Closed Nth Degree Mobility
Missoula, Montana, Sept. 19, 2007 - Missoula-based American Expedition Vehicles (AEV), long a favorite supplier of aftermarket parts to the Jeep off-road community, will soon be adding the highly-regarded Nth Degree Mobility suspension lift kits to its expanding product line.

Off-road enthusiasts have bemoaned the recent closing of Nevada-based Nth Degree Mobility, provider of innovative and expertly engineered long-arm and short-arm suspension lift kits, among other products. Now AEV announces it will pick up a “significant” portion of Nth Degree’s inventory and product line, with plans to continue manufacturing and distributing those products “in the near future.”

AEV asks for patience as it moves over inventory and equipment, but promises the same commitment to quality and innovation that Nicole and Jim Frens provided Nth Degree Mobility customers for years.

“It’s really unfortunate that Nth Degree had to close its doors. Nth Degree has been a major innovator in the suspension industry and has developed a near cult following with good reason,” said Dave Harriton, President of AEV. “Because this has happened so quickly, we are still trying to determine how long it will take for us to incorporate their products into our system. It is our goal, however, to have most of the existing suspension line back on the market along with several new products in the near future.”

“Most of the line will remain unchanged, although we will be simplifying and redesigning some of the existing components to make it easier for our dealer network to stock and for our users to install,” Harriton said.

AEV itself has been an Nth Degree customer, employing its suspension and skidplate products on AEV conversion vehicles. AEV will integrate Nth Degree’s design, engineering, and development operations into AEV’s Missoula, Montana facility while warehouse, distribution, and manufacturing will be moved into AEV’s Walled Lake, Michigan plant. Watch for further announcements on plans for former Nth Degree products at www.aev-conversions.com.

Regarded as the premier innovator in the Jeep aftermarket, as well as the only supplier of fully-validated, all-steel stamped parts and accessories for Jeeps, AEV continues a rapid expansion of its offerings to the dedicated Jeep community.

In the past year, the company has brought forth a number of products for the popular new Jeep Wrangler (JK), including a stamped front bumper, hood, corner guards, wheels, and skid plates, among others. The company’s fully-integrated “Brute” conversion kit has electrified the off-road community, providing all parts needed to convert a TJ Wrangler into a custom AEV Brute pickup.

Several AEV vehicles will be featured at the 2007 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, Oct. 30 - Nov.2, including a fully-equipped AEV 4-Door Wrangler (JK) with a custom Kicker Audio sound system; a four door Wrangler Unlimited with a 525HP 6.4L HEMI will also be featured.
near future = 2009
