Tread Lightly!, a U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting responsible outdoor recreation through stewardship and educational programs, today announced Rancho Performance Suspension & Shocks (Rancho) as its newest Official Partner.
As an Official Partner of Tread Lightly!, Rancho will support Tread Lightly!’s mission to protect off-road trail access and public lands through stewardship projects and responsible recreation education.
“Thank you to Rancho for joining the TL! Team as our newest Official Partner,” said Matt Caldwell, Executive Director of Tread Lightly!. “Rancho’s support will directly support the off-road community by funding our on-the-ground trail projects and education efforts. We’re looking forward to our stewardship project in August.”
Rancho, a popular global brand of suspension, shocks, and more, was born in the 1950s in Long Beach, California, as Rancho Jeep Supply, and quickly grew into a thriving off-road and performance suspension components manufacturer. In 1990, Rancho was purchased by Tenneco Inc. and quickly expanded to include the world’s first five-way adjustable shock absorber.
“Rancho has been invested in the off-road community for over 65 years and we know the value of trail conservation and responsible off-roading,” said Michael Sype, Rancho Brand Manager. “We’re proud to be an Official Partner of Tread Lightly! and support its mission to keep trails open.”
