This year marks the 50th 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, the Jeep brand has donated a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Sport to the club, which it has accessorized with parts from Mopar®, Katzkin and Goodyear.
