    I tried this when Al Davis was still alive...I thought the fans should buy the Raiders like the City of Green Bay that owns the Packers...I was willing to throw in some serious coin...

    The problem being "serious coin" to the vast majority of us is chump change to the guys making these kinds of deals.

    India bought Land Rover. So, not surprising China is buying Jeep.

    They are getting a better deal. ;-)

    The Chinese can build quality stuff if they want. The problem is many do not want to pay for it, hence we see what we see.

    Jeep Going Chinese???

    Just saw in the current issue of Four Wheel and Off Road magazine where the CEO of FCA said that FCA was in good shape and implied that the Jeep brand would not be sold to the Great Wall automotive group. This strongly suggests that discussions to do just that have been underway but were not currently initiated. This also suggests that discussions could resume at any time and that Jeep may, indeed, go the way of the IBM PC where Chinese Lenovo bought the brand. I'm planning to research this a bit more and to keep my eye on this situation. I may have bought my last Jeep (or could buy one before the change). Not happy about the current foreign ownership but would be very unhappy with Chinese ownership. Any thoughts from the Wayalife community?

    My Honda Fit was Chinese built, kinda pissed me off. Jeeps are a Toledo thing, pure and simple.

    Depending on year, it was built in Mexico or Japan. Ownership doesn't necessarily equate to production location. Nearly all manufactures have plants all over the world. Parts come from all over the world.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
