No automaker can survive without loyal fans, and as Jeep celebrates its 75th anniversary, the company is including Jeep owners in the festivities. Jeep started a year-long social media campaign to celebrate its major milestone and encouraged people around the world to tell their own stories back in March. Using the hashtag #myjeepstory, fans have been posting pictures and telling their own personal Jeep stories.
The social media campaign has brought in nearly 20,000 replies since it kicked off in March. Those still wishing to take part can do so through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or send in a direct submission.
Some submissions are photos of a muddy Jeep in the driveway, and an owner applying some elbow grease under the hood. Still, others are love letters to the off-road adventures owners have had behind the wheel of a Jeep.
Take Dan Grec for example. Grec is a modern day explorer currently traveling around Africa, a distance of about 80,000 miles. That’s no easy task and not many vehicles are durable enough to withstand the beating. Fortunately, Grec is behind the wheel of a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon that he modified for the adventure.
Other stories consist of family adventures, learning to drive, and tales of how Jeeps helped relationships push forward through thick and thin.
Here at Gossett CJDR, we’re proud to be a part of Jeep’s 75th anniversary!
