NEW YORK - April 1, 2010: Five contestants who correctly answered a Jeep trivia question on Twitter dug in a giant sandbox in Camp Jeep outside the Jacob K. Javits Center, site of the New York International Auto Show, looking for the golden Jeep Tiki.

The first contestant to find the golden JeepTiki wins the 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander. After a bit less than 16 minutes Joel Lounds from Bonita Springs, Florida found the idol, making him the winner.
