Sweet looks like it starts Aug 1, 2006. Plus you can mail in to receive a jeep to put in a cache. Awesome!!

I read today they still have some left, so you better mail in your form or you'll probably never see one around here.

I thought it was lottery style, so even if you mailed a form in you weren't guaranteed one.

I mailed in a form about 2 weeks ago and haven't received anything yet. Anyone else get one yet?

Nope, but again I was under the assumption it was lottery style.

FIFO, but I think they have a quota for each state in the continental U.S.

I wish there was a way to see how many of those were in circulation and how many had been stolen. I'm guessing 2/3 are gone already.

From my personal experience, I've had a 50% loss rate. Two people mailed me jeeps, and one I placed into a cache over here and left it and it's still in circulation, and the second I just logged into a cache over here and then mailed it back to the guy who mailed it to me, and it ended up MIA (probably sitting on a dock in Karachi Pakistan for all I know).

Didn't win with any of my submitted photos - don't think Jeep liked pictures of their TBs sitting on fine GM products like M1114s.

I think the people that won the photo contests were the ones who mass emailed everyone to vote for their photo to win Laughing

I didn't vote for anyone who contact me through the mass mailing. I dislike snail junk mail but I hate e-mail spam.
