A Run In with an All Things Jeep Founder

  
  
  
  

norm&jean resized 600

You may not know this, but our east coast office is still located in the small Massachusetts town where All Things Jeep was founded. One of the wonderful things about a little New England town, in addition to post-card worthy rural scenery and the sense of community, is that you run into people you know when you least expect it. Just this morning, I ran into Jean Wnuk, co-founder of ATJ, getting gas and coffee at the local refueling spot. I was lucky enough to work with Jean and her husband, Norman, as an intern when ATJ was still run out of a historic mill building.

After our brief hello, I started thinking about the time I spent with Norman and Jean and the fledgling online Jeep gift store that I watched them pour their hearts into. Many of you knew Jean and Norm, either through the Jeep community or from being customers of All Things Jeep. You knew their love for these crazy vehicles, their passion for their customers, and their dedication to making ATJ a success. Many of you also knew the sorrow that we felt when Norman passed away unexpectedly in November of 2009.

Seeing Jean this morning brought me back to the roots of our company and made me think once again how lucky we are to have been founded by partners in love and life with such a strong vision for their business - to be the #1 source for unique Jeep gift items.

Next time you start your Jeep, think of Norman, a man who lived and breathed the Jeep life. It's a Jeep thing...yeah, he understood.

Want to Go Topless? First You Need a Top to Take Off!

  
  
  
  

So you want to go topless…

One of our favorite features on the Wrangler is the ability to take the top off.  The sun on your face, the wind in your hair, and nothing above you but open sky; ­there’s nothing better. We love taking the top off so much, we even started an annual celebration over 7 years ago – Go Topless Day! What’s that, you say?  You only have a hardtop?  Your freedom panels aren’t giving you the open air ride you desire?  We understand, and believe us when we say, topless Jeeps have more fun! Here we'll explore the different options available for your first summer or soft top.

 

Soft Top Style - the Best of Both Worlds

A complete soft top kit is the best choice for Jeepers who want the topless ride and 100% waterproof protection.  Complete soft tops come in two styles – full frame and frameless.  Both full frame and frameless complete soft tops will include everything you need to switch to a soft top setup, including the door surrounds, tailgate bar, windshield channel, soft top, windows, and any other hardware necessary for installation. Read on to find out the difference between the two styles of complete soft top.

 

JK Supertop NXFull frame soft tops are most similar to the factory soft tops and feature metal bows to support the top’s fabric, removable side and rear windows, and a sunroof on certain models.  The advantage to a framed top is that the bows stay attached to the roll bars at all times.  This means that you can easily undo the top from the windshield and flip it all the way back for the topless experience.  The bows lay flat along the sides of the cargo area while the fabric of the top folds behind the rear seat.  If the clouds roll in, it’s just as simple to pull the top back up and reattach it.  Even with windows, it takes less than 5 minutes to fold down or put up a fully framed soft top once you've gotten the routine down. The versatility and weather protection offered by a complete framed soft top is unbeatable.  

 

trektopnx4The other option for a complete soft top kit is a frameless soft top. As the name implies, these tops do not use a metal bow system to support the fabric, but rather your Wrangler’s roll bars. This means that the top will follow the contours of your roll bars in the cargo area. For 4 door Wranglers, this does lead to a slight decrease in overhead cargo space when the rear windows are installed.  This decrease in overhead cargo space is not as noticable on the 2 door models.  On frameless tops that feature removable side and rear windows (hint, some models only have a removable rear window), the style is extremely similar to that classic bikini top look.  At the same time, complete frameless soft top kits will include door surrounds, which allow you to seal the top to the Jeep and keep water from coming into the passenger area.  When the windows are installed, a frameless soft top will be 100% waterproof. The disadvantage to a frameless top is that it does not have the capability to fold all the way back as a full framed soft top does. Some models have a sunroof feature so that the top can flip or roll back over the front driver and passenger seats. For many owners, having the sunroof back and the rear windows removed creates enough of an open air ride, while other owners find this set up doesn’t feel truly topless as the rear seats are covered. A frameless soft top does have to be completely uninstalled from the Jeep in order to go fully topless, and there is no built in storage mechanism as with the framed soft tops.

 

 

Summer Tops

TJbikini2Bikini top, safari top, brief top, Bimini top, combo top, island top – whatever you call it, the summer top is a staple of Wrangler culture.  Summer tops are the closest you can come to riding topless while still having a bit of weather protection overhead. All summer tops require a windshield channel in order to attach to the windshield area of the Jeep and use straps to attach to your roll bars. They come in a variety of styles, including brief, which covers only the two front seats, or extended, which covers front and rear seats. Summer tops are available in mesh and solid fabrics of varying colors.  While a summer top will keep precipitation from coming straight down into the Jeep, they do not seal to the Jeep the way that a full soft top does, and as such, are not waterproof.  Certain models have the plastic belt rail built into the sides of the top so that they can seal with factory door surrounds, but this varies widely by manufacturer and year. 
The best friend of a Jeep owner that loves that bikini style look, but doesn’t want wet seats is a Cab Cover. These covers can be thrown on over the summer top when a storm rolls in to keep your interior dry. Be forewarned though, if the clouds let loose while you’re on the move, there’s not much you can do.

 

spiderwebShade Tops

The Spiderweb Shadetop is a mesh top which attaches to your Wrangler’s roll bars using Spiderballs – bungee and ball cords that slip through the grommet holes on the top for easy installation.  This is a truly ingenious product that can be configured in a variety of ways.  The Shadetop is unique among summer tops in that it can be used tandem with other bikini tops, soft tops, and hard tops.  Another bonus, no windshield channel required!  Once the Shadetop is installed, you won’t have to remove it to use your other tops.  While the mesh material won’t provide much in the way of water protection, it will cut down on wind noise and buffeting while driving, as well as keep you from roasting at red lights on those hot and sunny days.  The brief-style JKini is a great option for those looking for a bit of protection while their freedom panels are out of the hardtop – birds overhead, anyone?  Shadetops come in multiple lengths, colors, and pieces to outfit your Wrangler with complete sun protection. 

 

Soft Top Accessories

bestopcarepack


Along with a new soft top comes a whole realm of care and storage accessories. We highly recommend the Bestop Soft Top Cleaner & Protectant Package along with the Bestop Soft Top Zipper Cleaner & Lubricant.  These products are specially formulated to keep your top looking great and functioning smoothly for years to come.

softtopstorageboot


 

 Storage boots allow the folded back fabric of your top to be stored compactly in the cargo area of your Jeep. They also protect the top from precipitation, bird droppings, and anything else that may come your way with your top folded back.

 

 

windowrollThere’s a few varieties of window storage for those removable soft top windows.  For those that like to leave their windows at home, a protective storage bag is a practical solution.  Prefer to take your windows with you?  Check out the Cloverpatch Window Roll.  This window storage solution uses layers of felt fabric to keep the windows from rubbing against one another.  The felt liner, with windows inside, rolls up and slips into the outer storage sleeve, which uses straps to attach to your roll bars in the cargo area.

 

cabcov

 

For those who choose the summer top route, a Car Cover or Cab Cover can save you from wet seats while your Wrangler is parked. The covers come in water resistant and waterproof options, depending on how you intend to use the cover.  Remember, never seal a Jeep with an already wet interior with a waterproof cover!

 

 

 

 

Which Top Do I Choose?

At the end of the day, there is no right or wrong top set up for your Wrangler.  The choice will come down to your level of comfort, how much weather protection you desire, and which features you value most.  As always, please call us at 877-249-0065 or email sales@allthingsjeep.com and we will be happy to answer any top questions you may have!

Take Your Top Off - Jeeps Going Topless

  
  
  
  

 

One of our favorite features on the Wrangler is the ability to take the top off.  The sun on your face, the wind in your hair, and nothing above you but open sky; ­there’s nothing better. We love taking the top off so much, we even started an annual celebration over 7 years ago – Go Topless Day! Believe us when we say, topless Jeeps have more fun!

 

I want to go topless…but is it really okay for my Wrangler’s interior to get wet?

HonorableMentionRain resized 600

This is the question we hear most often when it comes to riding topless. In short, yes, it is okay for your Wrangler’s interior to get wet if you are driving or parked topless. There are special features on the Wrangler that help make it a rough and tumble kind of vehicle. Driving topless also tends to create the "speed effect" where, unless it's really pouring, rain will simply fly off the windshield and not end up soaking your Jeep. That being said, interior electronics can obviously still get damaged by water and your interior soft goods (think seats and carpet) will soak up water just as you would expect them to. You can protect your stereo with a boat-style radio cover, but the key to interior preservation is draining, drying, and ventilation after a topless soak.

 

Draining

Did you know that your Wrangler has drain plugs underneath the carpet of the front and rear passengers’ floor area? If you’re leaving any part of your Jeep open where water can get in, you’ll want to lift up the carpets and pull all of these rubber stoppers out of the floor. This will allow standing water in the tub of the Jeep to drain right out the bottom of the vehicle. The first time I forgot to do this and the clouds let loose, I jumped into my Jeep and my feet were submerged in ankle deep, dirty floor-debris and rain buildup! While the whirlpools of water swirling out of my TJ were a little bit satisfying to watch, it wasn’t much fun fishing around underwater for those drain plugs.

Drying

After your Jeep has gotten wet, there are a few things you can do to help it dry. For most, this is as simple as leaving the topless Jeep out in the sun the next day. For faster drying, you may want to remove portions or the entirety of your carpet – it’s not difficult and the whole thing comes out. If you have seat covers and there was enough water to soak through them, you’ll want to pull them off and let your seats and covers dry separately in the sun.

GTD SUNSHINE resized 600

 

Ventilation

If your interior has gotten wet, the very last thing you want to do is seal the Jeep up. Ventilation is the name of the game! Putting your top or a completely waterproof (vs water resistant) cab or car cover on while the interior is wet will cause moisture to stay trapped inside the vehicle. Trapped moisture means your soft goods will mildew, leading to unpleasant odors. Tops and covers that seal are great for weather protection if they’re installed before precipitation starts, but will only exacerbate moisture build up once the interior gets wet. Wait out the rain, let your Jeep dry, and try to get it covered before the interior gets soaked next time. Alternatively, you can rip those carpets out for good and take a weekend to DIY spray liner the tub of your Jeep. If you’re not the handy type, there are professionals who can install bed liner so that you never have to worry about wet carpets again! This is also a great way to protect the interior of your Jeep from rust.

allthingsjeep 2272 255200066 resized 600

There's a variety of options from full soft tops to summer tops that will allow you to choose the amount of weather protection you're comfortable with. Eventually you will find that you either prefer to keep your interior dry and will take the necessary steps to keep it that way or you don't mind letting it get wet. You can rest assured either way knowing that it really is okay for your Wrangler to get wet inside.

A Non-Jeeper's Guide to Jeep Gifting

  
  
  
  

Through the years, we’ve found that our customers often fall into one of two categories: the Jeepers and the non-Jeepers.  We love them both dearly, but there are vast differences between the two.  The first category ranges from those who eat, sleep, and breathe Jeep to those who just acquired their first 4 x 4.  Some know their Wrangler inside and out, from the tips of their front tow hooks to the bottom of their back bumper.  Others are just learning how to lower their soft top. Either way, it’s not long before they’ve got a folder of Jeep parts and accessories saved on their internet browser that only seems to grow.  It’s a Jeep thing, and they understand.  

The second category of customer is the non-Jeeper, bless their hearts. They may not own a Jeep themselves, but somebody that they love does! The non-Jeeper is clever enough to realize that this makes the perfect gift-giving opportunity.  They may have started small with a Jeep shirt, hat, or mug so that their Jeeper could showcase their pride.  This is wonderful!  Every Jeep owner appreciates Jeep themed gifts!  Eventually, the non-Jeeper may grow more ambitious, realizing that a Jeeper’s favorite thing to dress up is their vehicle itself. Often, this is where confusion sets in.  “What’s a YJ?  Jeep tires come in more than one size?  What do you mean 'the doors come off?'”  The non-Jeeper is so close to achieving Ultimate Gift Giver status, but their lack of Jeep knowledge threatens to send them high-tailing it back to the apparel section of the site.  After all, it’s far easier to guess a Jeeper’s shirt size than their tire size.  But, wait!  We can help!  Equipped with some basic knowledge, the non-Jeeper can buy even greater gifts that will not only delight a Jeeper, but also fit their vehicle perfectly!

1. What Year Is It?

The first, and possibly the easiest, piece of information to gather is what year the Jeep is.  Almost all accessories that are not universal fit are designed for a specific year range of Wrangler, referred to as YJ (years 1987-1995), TJ (years 1997-2006), and JK (2007-2014). We also have a variety of accessories for the classic Jeep CJ models.  Figuring out a Jeep’s year is most easily accomplished with a simple “What year is it?” directed towards the owner.  An innocent and convincing “Just wondering!” should divert any suspicions regarding the non-Jeeper’s intentions. 

2. How many doors?

For those Jeepers who have a 2007 or later Wrangler, another pivotal piece of information is how many doors the Jeep has.  Wranglers with 4 doors will, obviously, have a much longer overall vehicle length.  This affects the fit of tops, certain storage solutions, seat covers, floor liners, and other accessories.  Non-Jeepers will want to make sure they know how many doors their Jeeper's JK has before shopping for accessories. 

3. Top Set Up

Another easy to establish Jeep stat is what kind of top set up currently exists.  Hard tops and soft tops require different car and cab covers.  Jeeps with soft tops qualify for a variety of top specific accessories, including window storage solutions, noise reduction systems, and replacement windows.  Jeeps with hard tops can use noise deadening insulators, or storage carts.  The thing a Jeep with a hard top needs most though, is a soft top

4. Tire Size 

This is the information that is hardest to obtain while maintaining a covert gift-giver profile – enlisting the help of someone who often sees the Jeep in question may be necessary!  Our tire covers come in very specific sizes and in order to make sure that the cover fits perfectly, we need to match the cover size with the number found on the sidewall of the tire.  This number is usually in the format of P255/75R17.  Once a non-Jeeper has the tire number, the only other thing they need to get a great gift is an idea of the Jeeper’s taste for the cover itself!

With these pieces of information and the help of the gang at All Things Jeep, even the most auto-unaware of the non-Jeepers can find a wonderful gift for the Jeeper in their life!

All Things Jeep Celebrates 10 Years!

  
  
  
  

cake resized 600

Once you get to a certain age, you begin to understand that some birthdays are better than others by nature.  Years can pass with nothing more monumental than a cake and some candles to show for your most recent trip around the sun.  Then there are the big ones, the birthdays that really mean something.  Maybe it was your sweet sixteen, when you finally got to taste the freedom of the road (hopefully in a Jeep).  Perhaps it was your eighteenth, when you saw the infinite and overwhelming possibilities of your adult life spread before you, not realizing then just how young you really were.  Whether it’s five or fifty, some birthdays simply stay with you long afterward as more than just a day on the calendar.  We’re delighted to say that All Things Jeep has arrived at one of those birthdays. 

When the company began in 2003, we were small.  We’re talking out of a basement, owners wearing the Jack and Jill of all trades hats, answering the phones while cooking dinner for the family small.  Norman and Jean, the company’s founders, had a goal to create a place where Jeepers (and those who love them) could find truly unique gifts.  Over the years, the company outgrew the basement, the whole house, a barn built specially for holding all the Jeep goodies, and an east coast warehouse.  A decade later, our love for Jeep things now spans the country as we are a bicoastal operation!

We’ve been lucky enough to have ten incredible years of working with Jeepers from around the world.  We get to find the craziest gadgets, coolest apparel, toughest accessories, and best gifts.  Even better, we get to pass them on to our lovely customers!  We’ve been able to share our knowledge and learn just as much from this wild community.  And, of course, we throw the biggest topless Jeep party every year!  We’ve had an incredible adventure, and we can’t wait to see what’s on the trail ahead.

Of course, with every special birthday comes a celebration!  We’re inviting you to come celebrate ten years of All Things Jeep by shopping with us and enjoying 10% off site wide.  We’ve got $10.00 tees and $10.00 decals to boot!  All you have to do is enter the coupon code ATJ10ANN at checkout - see what we did there?  Even after all these years, nothing makes us happier than thanking you with a handwritten note for sharing your Jeep life with us. Here’s to another ten!

Finally, a proper lunchbox for the Jeeper

  
  
  
  

offroad academy lunch bag by all things jeep 2

We know, times are tough all over. Gone are the days of leaving the office every day for a grand lunch out at, say, Denny's or Jack in the Box. Back are the days of brown bagging it.

This wouldn't be so bad if all your friends at work didn't mercilessly mock that re-purposed Safeway bag you use to cart around your sandwich and chips.

It's another sad fact that there is a marked shortage of lunch boxes designed to appeal to the off-road enthusiast of the Jeep persuasion. Until now, that is. Enter: the All Things Jeep lunchbag.

Sleek black, featuring a Zippered closure, a front pocket (for your spoons, napkins, small pets, etc.), foil laminate PE foam insulation (to keep your lunch at the right temperature), this is the coolest way to cart your lunch around since that plaid thing with the Thermos in it. There won't be any question that you belong to the off-road elite, as "Off-road Academy" is screen-printed on the front.

Enough talk! How do I get one of these amazing lunch bags?

Funny you should ask, if you can manage to spend $75 or more on our site, the lunch box is free. The item may otherwise be purchased for $6.99.

San Mateo Truck & Jeep Show -- and, ATJ meets Rick Russell

  
  
  
  

 2013 02 23 11 05 41 473

The ATJ team is a tale of two states. When the MA team and the CA team finally get a chance to hang out together, they generally do things like go to the San Mateo Truck & Jeep Show. The bad news is that, if you're reading this and you didn't go, you missed it.

The good news is, we met Rick Russel! Of the Off-Road Adventures' Series fame, that is. If you're not familiar with Rick Russell, then you haven't been paying attention to the long list of DVDs, most of which can be seen here, we at All Things Jeep have provided for years.

R.R. is an all-around laid-back guy who keeps busy with his off-roading business and is guilty only of being just a bit surprised at the photo op. Of course, there were other highlights -- in truth, too many to mention. Here are a few that stood out.

Jeep Tent

tepui tent

When you say you're going to take the Jeep camping, chances are you don't intend on inviting it into the tent. But you sort of want to, don't you? Sure you do. The tent seen above, then, offers a whole new spin on the notion of taking the Jeep camping. Heck, the Jeep has earned its place as a member of the family, right? Right? And you're not going to let it into the tent? Harsh. Take a cue from the local Jeep club that had this beauty on display and camp with your Jeep.

Your Jeep Wears Combat Treads

This one's wearing tank treads. We realize this isn't exactly breaking new ground, but look -- a Jeep with treads. That's exciting, right? Look in the correct corners of the Web and you can see daredevils using treaded Jeeps to pull outhouses around and stuff. Spare tire becomes optional.

Remember your Roots

military jeep2

As you probably know, Jeep was born of a scrambling, intense need. In a battle for the government bid, Bantam's blueprints had been adapted by Ford and Willys into their own prototypes. The demand for the Jeep was so great by the time each was completed that both, in addition to Bantam's original prototype, were green-lighted for 1,500 units each. Willys' model would become the MA (Military model "A"), which naturally progressed to model "B," becoming, you guessed it, the MB, which is pictured here. Willys' finally won the contract and incorporated the improvements of Bantam's and Ford's models.

And that's all, folks. Thanks for reading. Isn't it just like you were there? OK, maybe not. Here are a few more pics, just for grins.

Photos we want to show you, but won't write about

Happy Valentine's Day, and Take Pictures

  
  
  
  

JP Valentine resized 600
First of all, if you're at a loss for Jeep Valentine's Day ideas, please observe the above image, then follow this link to WillysJeep.com, from whence the image originates, so you can send the valentine to your sweetheart.

What a cool vintage image. Here's hoping you've gotten your ATJ Valentine's goodies, because today is the day. Remember, it's still not too late to order some of our cool VD (Valentine's Day ... where's your head?) stuff and then blame the Post Office for late delivery, and it definitely isn't too late to head over to the gas station and buy a rose from the guy outside with the bucket full of 'em.

All this mushy lovey dovey talk got me wondering just what it is all you Jeepsters are doing for Valentine's Day, and whether or not you take pictures. After combing the Internet, I found an alarming deficiency of photographic evidence that proves that Jeepsters have their own style of lovin'. Can you imagine a rugged Jeep owner handing over a chalky conversational heart candy that reads "B MINE?"

Neither can we. That's because you're not fourth graders, you're Jeepsters. So, whether you're expressing love for your Jeep itself or you're lucky enough to be paired with a fellow Jeepster who understands that off-road enthusiasm deserves a place in the Holiday of Love, snap a couple of pics and send 'em here. We'd certainly like to post them. If we get enough, we can have a Valentine's Photo contest or something.

So, if you're having an off-road Valentine's Day, good for you and take some pictures. Now if you'll excuse me, It's time for me to clock out and go buy some roses from the guy outside the gas station.

Go Topless Day 2013 and ATJ's Answer to Valentine's Day

  
  
  
  

go topless day 13

Our good buddy Patrick Hughes logged onto the ATJ Blog just the other day and asked whether GTD13 would happen to fall on the date of May 11 this time around, citing rumors that have floated about craigslist.

It's an issue that's buzzing around message boards, and deserves some clarification.

As you can see by this year's new GTD banner, the "official" Go Topless Day is, in fact, May 18. Naturally, a day of such freedom as Go Topless Day can hardly be contained to a single day, any easier than it may be limited to a single event (which it cannot, by the way). We believe Mr. Hughes was speaking of the New Hampshire-based event over at Backwoods Farms, which will indeed occur on May 11.

If you haven't already put it together, that's great news for New Englanders, because you can easily go to the NH event, then to the Ocean State Jeepsters event in MA the following weekend.

Remember back when you were a kid and wished on a star for an extra Christmas? It's finally happened, and you have North Country Rock Solid 4x4 to thank for organizing the 5/11 event. Naturally, ATJ will be at both events, and will be there in spirit at the numerous other events to be staged nation-wide. Stay tuned for info on the 5/18 GTD.

Valentine's Day Fun

It may be fun to go topless in May, but at the beginning of February, it's cold. It's hard to even think about going topless. But you know what's easy to think about? Valentine's day. Yup, it's right around the corner, again, and yup, I heard you groan.

The good news is, we have all sorts of paraphernalia for you to buy your sweetheart — and if you order now, you can even pretend like you didn't forget. The truly strange thing is that the phrases "You Make my Heart Rev" and "Let's Hook Up" are not currently inscribed on any known brand of conversational heart. We checked.

allthingsjeep 2247 207905638describe the image

 The candy companies' loss, however, is your ATJ-wear gain. What's more, each of these shirts has a matching pair of sweats, echoing identical sentiments. So you can lounge comfortable in cold, crisp February with your feelings about your honey on your sleeve. Body. Whatever.

allthingsjeep 2247 209349911describe the image

These are just a few ways to celebrate your love, ATJ style. Not to neglect the dozens of heart-filled Jeep designs available year-round. There is no reason to contain the expression of 4x4 love.

Of course, sweatpants and nifty T-shirts can only go so far to warm the heart. True love needs more than just comfortable and snazzy around-the-house wear. Something genuine, solid and real. Something like this cool dry-erase board that's free with every order over $75 until Feb. 14. Free shipping on those $75+ orders, too.

Naturally, there are more goodies to be found on the website, which we know you'll visit soon, anyway. Stay with us for GTD13 updates and other exciting Jeep Things that they wouldn't understand.

ATJ Fairwell to 2012

  
  
  
  

GTD PHOTO WINNER SCOTT

We're 16 days into a new year, even if you will be writing "2012" on your checks until February. Time to bid 2012 farewell — the last rock has been crawled upon, the last ATJ order sent ... Time to live in the present, here in 2013, in a world of possibilities. Of course, long after that tattered old list of recycled-from-last-year resolutions is given up on, and our treadmills have all reprised their real calling as hat racks, ATJ will still be there for you. First, though, a brief look back at 2012.

We had a pretty rockin' Go Topless Day. GTD12 was adopted by 150 clubs — quite impressive when you consider that a mere five years prior, Go Topless Day was a new phenomenon comprising a few Lancaster, MA, based enthusiasts who celebrated the dawn of Spring by shedding their Jeeps' tops.

With the event, All Things Jeep has similarly grown and blossomed. The above photo was taken by Scott C., one of five Go Topless Day 2012 photo contest winners. The Jeep parade, a common, if beautiful, sight on Go Topless Day, is given a pretty artistic treatment here. It's a pretty good metaphor for the artistic renaissance ATJ has seen in the last year.

Every holiday imaginable was commemorated by a keepsake, whether the sleek Halloween Trick-or-Treat totes in October, the Father's Day Koozies, or the spiffy, specific-to-AllThingsJeep 2012 Christmas Ornament, which has the distinctions of: A) Making Christmas trees of Jeepers in 2012 damn sexy, and B) being virtually indestructible (and don't think we didn't test 'em!).

It's all a part of the ever-expanding All Things Jeep. That's hardly a complete list, by the way, of all the momentos we've produced over 2012's national holidays. We're getting just a little more creative every day. We hope you've noticed, hope you've liked all our exciting new products, and we can't wait to unveil all the cool stuff we have planned for 2013. Not the least of which being, of course, Go Topless Day 2013.

Happy New Year, from ATJ!
