Up In the Sky...It's a Bird...It's a...Jeep?

September 21, 2005

Would you do this to your Jeep? Chrysler Group, which has a fascination with destroying its own vehicles for press stunts, is at it again. The brand that ran a Grand Cherokee through a glass wall at the Detroit auto show has dropped a Commander from 1200 feet to demonstrate its committment to Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit organization that sends care packages to troops overseas. The skydiving Jeep, along with human companions, made its drop this morning near Chelsea, Mich. Jeep says its dealers will be drop points for civilians who want to send their own care packages to troops around the world. For more info, click over to the Jeep Web site or to Operation Gratitude.
