The year 2012 marked the 50th anniversary of one of the largest and longest-running annual Jeep events in the country, the San Diego-based Tierra Del Sol (TDS) 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. TDS then accessorized with parts from Mopar, Katzkin and Goodyear.

"We're honored and proud to support the club and look forward to 50 more years!"
