Chrysler is no stranger to organizing events that allow everyday people to show up and actually test their Jeep vehicles off road, and the Jeep Rocks & Rock Tour will offer that opportunity again in 2010. The Rocks & Road Tour will travel to 11 different venues across the United States from July 16 to October 31, offering the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a Jeep and actually drive it in an off-road environment.

The process of human and computer interaction during the build is pretty interesting. Plus, it’s a unique view into the assembly of an American-made vehicle.
