Fans can tag their Instagram Story with #4X4DAY and @Jeep for the chance to be featured. Jeep brand’s global social channels will also support 4x4 Day, celebrating freedom and adventure around the world.
 
World Surf League athletes and Jeep Brand Ambassadors Filipe ToledoMalia ManuelJordy Smith and Nikki Van Dijk will also post across their Instagram channels in support of 4x4 Day, giving fans the opportunity to follow the four World Surf League and Olympic-hopeful athletes’ adventures in the water and on the road.
 
Owners, fans and followers can also get their own 4x4 Day Jeep-branded gear at Jeep.com, and shipping will be free for orders $44 or more made on April 4. 

"April 4, known to our friends, fans and followers around the world as 4x4 Day, is a day specifically meant to celebrate the freedom and adventure that come with owning a Jeep vehicle,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Jeep Brand - North America. "At Jeep, we think 4x4 Day should be a national holiday, or at least an acceptable reason to take the day off from work. But, since we can't change the calendar, and even an 84:1 crawl ratio can’t stop the rotation of the earth, we decided to use the day to launch our 'Find Your Freedom' contest to allow one lucky fan to live out the Jeep life, maybe even take a year off from work – making every day 4x4 day."
 
Additionally, as previously announced, to celebrate the arrival of the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator in Jeep showrooms this spring, a limited-run Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition model will be made available to customers who take advantage and start the pre-order opportunity online. The unique Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition will be offered for pre-order on Jeep 4x4 Day, April 4, at JeepGladiatorLaunchEdition.com.
 
Consumers who pre-order a Jeep Gladiator Launch Edition model will be exclusively eligible to enter the “Find Your Freedom” contest, where they will have the opportunity to win what Gladiator offers: Jeep freedom. More specifically, they can win one-year’s salary of $100,000 so they can take the time off to enjoy the Jeep lifestyle of pursuing any outdoor adventure. Consumers can learn more details about the "Find Your Freedom" contest and how to enter by watching this video, featuring wounded warrior and U.S. Army veteran Noah Galloway.
