Cool guys.

I told them a few days ago that I got about 10 to 15 lined up. Waiting on word back so we can start setting up a date and I'll tell them the new #s!

Don't bring any "extra" things with you on your trip up

Ok, so it seems I gotta write a letter to their public relations department in hopes they do approve us. I'm told they rarely do tours though.

So keep your fingers crossed and hope I can persuade them.

I used to work for ChryCo in Perrysburg (12 1/2 yrs). Got a lot friends that work there still and a couple that work at the Jeep plant. I'd go. And, you're right. They rarely do tours anymore. Back in the day, I remember my dad taking me through the plant on their annual open house. By the time I started working at that same plant, they had long since stopped those open houses.

I'll be watching here for future plans. Also, I'm going to get in touch with a friend, Mike, who works at the plant. Maybe he can give me some information. He's an end-of-line inspector. He's in charge of making sure no crap makes it out the door. Yes, end-user quality ratings have gone up since he started that job!

Ok guys, what do you think?

Hello, Jodi

I'm e-mailing you in regards to the possibility of a Jeep Factory Tour as the correspondence over on the Jeep Twitter as notified you and I.

I've compiled a group of other Jeep enthusiasts, both local to myself and the Great Lakes area, by both personal correspondence and online over at JeepForum.com. One of the best sites for everything Jeep related whether it be general discussion or asking how to fix things on my 15+ year old 93 Wrangler. So far the count has gotten to a guranteed 15 and it can reach as high as 25 depending on date/time for some people and their companions.

As with a lot of people, the group that's interested are major Jeep fans. I know myself and group of local friends love to wrench on my Jeep every weekend because the ease of access to so much and having a project is fun. A few of the members on JeepForum.com that are also interested have built several CJs (Example: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/pr...se-2-a-955980/) to people that owning 2005 TJs. We're all very passionate about our Jeeps, even if they're 30 years old or 3 years old.

We wish to see where Jeeps are created. Where the magic begins, so to speak. We know they start off a factory floor and end up on the highest of mountain ridges, we just want to see the whole adventure our all capable machines transverse, even if it doesn't push them to their limits.

We hope to hear back from you.

Thanks for your time,
Chris Gross
