There used to be a bar in Alpine WY that was called Jeeps. The guy that owned it had been nicknamed Jeep when he was a kid and grew up with the nickname and he named his bar Jeeps. As soon as Chrysler bought out Jeep they threatend him with a law suit and he had to change his bars name.

I agree that the use of the name only lends itself to free advertisment as long as they aren't selling something that competes with them. Every time we went past that bar we thought about a Jeep and I eventually bought one. Coincidence maybe but heck it didn't hurt anything.
