Jeep Tiki Hunt Finds Wrangler Islander Winners
Jeep hided three individual Jeep Tikis - Jeep Steel, Jeep Wave and Jeep Trail - somewhere in the US, with clues regarding their location released via JeepTikiHunt.com, the Jeep Facebook and the Jeep Twitter page.
Each of the Tikis was equipped with their own GPS tracking device, linked to a direct telephone number. Once the lucky hunter finds one, he/she had to dial the unique telephone number affixed and... win an Islander.
"Since we introduced the all-new 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander, we have had the pleasure of giving away four vehicles to four Jeep fans through our social media contests, 'Tweet-to-Win' and 'Jeep Tiki Hunt,'" said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group. "This unique experience has given us the opportunity to connect and communicate directly with Jeep consumers on several levels, while igniting passion for the Jeep brand, the Jeep Wrangler and the all-new Islander."
A limited number of 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander models are still available in showrooms across the United States.
Justin Walter Reade-Chitaphana, from Los Angeles, was the first contestant to find a Jeep Tiki, which was hidden in a flower pot on Venice Beach. Melissa Block, from Virginia Beach, Virginia, was the second winner, finding a Jeep Tiki at The Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier in Chicago. The third and final winner was Scott Carman of Golden, Colorado, who discovered a Jeep Tiki attached to the wheel of Buffalo Bill's horse and buggy at the Buffalo Bill Museum & Grave in Golden, Colorado.
