2012 marks the 50 year anniversary of one of the largest and longest running annual Jeep events in the country, the San Diego-based Tierra Del Sol 4 Wheel Drive Club’s Desert Safari. In celebration of this milestone, Jeep has donated a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport to the club, which it has accessorized with parts from Mopar, Katzkin and Goodyear. For the next nine months, the up-fitted Wrangler will be transported to several 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 auction in December at the San Diego International Auto Show.
“We are honored to recognize Tierra Del Sol Four Wheel Drive Club and the 50th Anniversary of their Desert Safari event,” said Jason Stoicevich, Director, Chrysler Group LLC’s California Business Center. “For more than over 50 years, this club has been promoting the enjoyment and protection of our natural resources, family outdoor living and responsible trail use, values that the Jeep brand has also been supporting for more than 70 years.”
