SAN DIEGO, Dec. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
On Dec. 30 at 2 p.m. PST, someone is going to receive a late Christmas present courtesy of the Jeep® brand and the Tierra Del Sol 4 Wheel Drive Club of San Diego.
The year 2012 marked the 50th anniversary of one of the largest and longest-running annual Jeep events in the country, the San Diego-based Tierra Del Sol (TDS) 4 Wheel Drive Club's Desert Safari.
In celebration of this milestone, the Jeep brand has donated a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport to the club. TDS then accessorized with parts from Mopar, Katzkin and Goodyear. Over the last nine months, the up-fitted Wrangler was transported to numerous locations and events throughout southern California, giving the club the opportunity to educate the public about land-use issues and sell raffle tickets for the vehicle's eventual sweepstakes drawing at the San Diego International Auto Show on Dec. 30.
"Tierra Del Sol has been promoting the enjoyment and protection of our natural resources, family outdoor living and responsible trail use for over 50 years. These are also core values of the Jeep brand," said Jason Stoicevich, Director - California Business Center, Chrysler Group LLC. "We're honored and proud to support the club and look forward to 50 more years!"
"Over the last nine months this vehicle has been taken to several cars shows, TV stations, street fairs and talked about on several radio stations," said Sweepstakes Chairman Wayne Miller. "We have tried to get word out about the sweepstakes and that the monies earned are going to the worthy causes that help keep Public Lands & Trails from being closed to responsible off-road users."
Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC's service, parts and customer-care brand, donated a significant amount of parts and accessories to the vehicle up-fit. All parts are available for consumers to purchase and have installed at local Jeep dealers.
Mopar Parts List:
The Jeep vehicle lineup includes Compass, Grand Cherokee, Liberty, Patriot, Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited. To meet consumer demand around the world, all Jeep models are sold outside North America – and all are available in right-hand drive versions and with gasoline and diesel powertrain options.
