Santa Cruz, CA (August 19, 2021) – Grilling in the great outdoors just got a lot easier for some 4×4 owners. Today, HitchFire announces the release of a new driver-side swing arm that will make it easier for Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco owners to equip a Forge 15 Grill to their vehicle. Driven by a passion for “life around the hitch”, the new swing arm will allow for products like the Forge 15 and Ultimate Grill Station™ to have greater vehicle compatibility.
Having the opportunity to engage with their community directly by attending events like BHA North American Rendezvous in Montana, and The Big Gear Show in Utah, was an essential influence in the development of this new option. The new swing-arm is a step toward accommodating not only Jeep Wranglers and Ford Broncos, but any vehicle equipped with an aftermarket tire mount, rear swinging hatch and other accessories, making it easier for the Forge 15 to integrate seamlessly with a rig’s setup.
“HitchFire has always been about great functionality and ease of use, no matter the vehicle. Jeeps Wranglers are some of the most capable vehicles on the market and one of the most popular platforms for getting outdoors. It made so much sense to create this new option for those owners.” said Evan Currid, HitchFire CEO and Founder. “It’s a small addition, but it’s one that will allow us to grow the HitchFire community even more.”
Launched last year, HitchFire’s Forge 15 can withstand miles of pavement or trails while securely attaching to your vehicle’s 2” receiver hitch. Launched in May 2021, their new Ultimate Grill Station™ offers a suite of grilling accessories including a side burner and maple cutting board that integrate seamlessly with the Forge 15 grill. These products, and the new swing-arm are available for purchase on hitchfire.com.
Inspired by adventure, road trips, and the love of the outdoors, HitchFire leads a new category in hitch-based accessories, the rugged, hitch-mounted grills and accessories are purpose-built, made with the highest quality materials, and designed to withstand the roughest weather and toughest conditions for a world full of undiscovered trails and expeditions. It’s not just a grill, It’s Adventure Grilling™.
