Cinch Jeans


A new partnership was announced today between Cinch Jeans, a Western clothing brand, General Motors and Monroe Truck Equipment Inc. to develop a Cinch edition medium duty truck. The new truck is specifically tailored to fit the lifestyle needs of Western enthusiasts – men and women who spend a considerable amount of time each year on the road, hauling high-dollar horses and cargo, and look for distinctive features in consumer products that showcase their passion for all things Western.

Through this unique partnership with Cinch, General Motors and Monroe will enter the Western industry with an authentic truck that combines the hardworking attributes of the Chevrolet Kodiak and GMC TopKick trucks with the Western style and flair only Cinch can bring to this market.

“Cinch is the equine Western market expert, making them our partner of choice as we enter the billion dollar Western lifestyle industry with a truck made for hauling horses,” said Ross Hendrix, director of marketing for General Motors’ commercial trucks and vans. “Using Cinch’s first-hand knowledge of the industry, we’ve been able to create a truck that fits the horse world’s style and needs.”

The Cinch edition truck was designed to protect horsemen’s most valuable investment – the horses they’re pulling behind them – and to deliver key comfort and entertainment elements that help drivers make the most of long days on the road.

The Cinch edition features the new Monroe Truck Equipment “So-Low” suspension, which brings endless benefits to Western enthusiasts and athletes as they haul their cargo.

“This new technology lowers the pickup box by four inches – to nearly the same height as a GM 3500 dually box,” said Rick Rufenacht, vice president of marketing and sales for Monroe Truck Equipment. “With the ‘So-Low’ suspension, we are able to produce a truck to complement most fifth-wheel or gooseneck trailers – providing a significant advantage over competitive trucks in this rapidly emerging market.”

The Cinch edition also includes a custom Cinch seat package with distressed leather captain chairs, rear bench seat, the Cinch crest logo embroidered on the headrests, and the words

“Cinch*Up” printed on the bottom of the rear window.

Adding luxury to this workhorse truck, the Cinch edition features a MTX Thunder Dome Axial Speaker upgrade, a custom console with a DVD player and a 15-inch flip-down TV/entertainment system with headliner-mounted speakers.

“Unbeatable fit and distinctive style are the hallmark characteristics of the Cinch brand, and this partnership with GM and Monroe will provide our loyal equine customers with yet another way to experience these traits in action,” said Paul Leroue, president of Rocky Mountain Clothing Company, the company that manufactures Cinch Jeans. “We’re excited to show our passion for the Western lifestyle in such a new and innovative way.”

The pickups also can be special ordered directly through Monroe Truck Equipment. Please visit www.ultimate-pickup.com or www.monroetruck.com for dealer information. To see the truck up close please visit Cinch World at www.cinchjeans.com.
