2017 ETA Open House Truck Show Carshow OBX

Its almost that time of year, the date is set and the preparations are underway for the 15th Annual ETA Open House and Customer Appreciation Day. Come out and join the Eastern Truck & Accessories team at the shop in Norfolk, VA from 10am-4pm for a fun filled day. This event wil lbe held rain or shine and is always fun for the whole family with activities for 4x4 enthusiasts of all ages. Building on the sucess of past year's we'll be raising money for a worthwhile cause, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation with the goal to outdo last year's record breaking $39,500 donation for CF research.

If you've got a show worthy 4x4, lowered truck or muddy Jeep be sure to enter it in the show-n-shine contest for one of the many categories being judged. There will be several vendors on site to answer questions and give demos. Tour the ETA shop and get an up close look at all the ETA project builds. Buy a t-shirt and enter to win some of the gear being raffled off throughout the day. Meet Grave Digger monster truck legend Dennis Anderson; he'll be hanging out signing autographs during the day. Around noon the crew will be serving up lunch which will lead into the always entertaining raffle/auction. As with past years we'll be raffling/auctioning off an array of prizes from lift kits, tires, wheels, install labor, bumpers, lights, TVs, tools, truck accessories and more valued at well over $25,000. Following the success of last year's XJ giveaway we decided to bring it back again this year and give everyone another shot at winning a decked out ETA built rig. This year the giveaway vehicle is a 2005 Jeep Wrangler TJ RHD (right hand drive). We'll be overhauling this Jeep with the help of some awesome sponsors to turn this into a trail prepped, beach cruising, top down daily driver that you could win! Stay tuned for more on the build up of this TJ and for how to enter the raffle to WIN A JEEP!
