Got home from work and my wife had apparently already opened it. The verbiage is somewhat hilarious, but I appreciate the gesture. The "Jeep" tag is leather and appears to be of decent quality.

One time, the Nissan dealer sent my parents a tin of Danish cookies as a "thank you" for buying a car from them.

My adopted mom got a Subaru-branded Samsonite duffel bag for pre-ordering her Ascent.

And your mom likely got a faulty CVT, engine or brakes. Seems like a fair compromise...

The CDC sent me a gross of condoms after my last vehicle purchase. Seems they are partnering with J D Power and utilizing manufacturer databases to help mitigate the scourge of perpetual in-breeding that creates Subaru buyers. Here's an action shot of said buyers. j/k

The way I look at is that they didn't have to send anything. Why not just enjoy then gift.

Weird comment, considering the dearth of Subarus in the pic...

Years ago, my parents got a nice canvas Eddie Bauer duffel bag in the mail thanking them for their purchase of a new Eddie Bauer Explorer. Neither has ever owned an Explorer in any form or fashion...

Whatever the case, it's a heck of a nice duffel bag. They passed it along to me, and I've quite literally carted it all over the country. I'm usually out of town overnight at least one night a week these days, and it almost always stays packed with things like toiletries and chargers so I just have to stuff some clothes in it and go.

That was one very nice thank you for not actually buying a car. I've never looked to see what a similar Eddie Bauer duffel bag would cost if bought outright, but I imagine it wouldn't be cheap.

They're being flat towed behind the Ford trucks, the Ciera is blocking access to the trailer park/home.

You'll be forced to live the JEEP Dream and lifestyle now !
Nice as the key keeper or tag is, the sales brochures and that marketing info isn't cheap to create or print either.
When I had my 74 CJ, it was the time or within a year of Jeep "offering factory installed radios!" I don't recall getting Jeepwear or Jeep fashion of those days but it existed. In 2005, I picked up a 95 YJ and by then, Jeep had their own church. grin2
