Rodeo X Rigs Vol.5 took over the Long Beach Exchange (LBX) on Sunday, October 9th and brought together enthusiasts from all over So Cal and beyond to enjoy the day hanging out and checking out the scene. With more than 850 rigs and roughly 2,800 people showing up throughout the 4-hour meet, Rodeo X Rigs is quickly becoming the top off-road/overland/adventure meetup in SoCal.
LBX provided a massive footprint for Vol.5 with tons of shops and restaurants for showgoers to explore and enjoy. In addition, industry vendors, shops, food trucks, and off-road crews were on hand showcasing their products, and tasty food, and enjoying all the good vibes. The raffle is also a huge part of the meet, and just like previous RodeoXRigs, giving back is a priority. For Vol.5, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) was selected. The JDRF is a non-profit organization that funds type 1 diabetes (T1D) research, advocacy, and community enhancement to advance life-changing breakthroughs.
Those in attendance included: Adventure Rigs Magazine, King Shocks, Total Chaos, Goose Gear, Banks Power, Sibi Built, Tint Lab, Aiden James, Diode Dynamics coming from AZ, The Dirt Bag Garage, and The Taco Garage coming from San Diego, Show Stoppers Off Road coming out from the Valley, AV Overland from Lancaster, and Stellar Built all the way from Sacramento – just to name a few.
Stay tuned for Vol. 6 and some other great events coming from the Rodeo X Rigs and TrailWolves crews!
