PAOLI, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Barricade, an industry leader in off-road Jeep Wrangler products, is proud to announce that this year’s Barricade Go Topless Day was celebrated in all fifty states and 6 countries, bringing together Jeepers to celebrate summer and raise money for a number of local charities. 460-plus events were held worldwide with more than 66,000 Jeeps and participants celebrating summer by taking their Jeep tops off while also raising money to support local charities. To date more than $687,000 has been raised for nonprofits across the country and world.

Barricade Go Topless Day grew from a small meetup of Jeepers at a local farm stand in 2008 to today being celebrated worldwide on May 18th by thousands of Jeep enthusiasts.
