That's probably the same question that has been asked when Willys sold Jeep to Kaiser, then AMC. I remember all the negative attention surrounding the sale to Chrysler. At the time, Plymouth/Chrysler was making the "K' car...if that tells you anything! People were afraid the tough Jeep would go soft.
If Ford bought Jeep, wouldn't it be kind of fitting since they had an integral part of its birth? The Jeep brand is too valuable and popular to just be "raided" and dismantled. Oldsmobile just lost its connection with the mainstream public. Plymouth was absorbed into Chrysler because the cars became almost mirror images of each other.
I think Jeep would stand on its own. Break away from the "Big Car Company" umbrella...
