The opt-out date is June 1st, 1999.

Is it just us or is every month a record sales month for the Jeep brand? March, 1999 is no different as DaimlerChrysler announced that Jeep sales were up over 18% from 1998 with a total of 45,098 vehicles sold.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has its best 3 months ever with 68,270 vehicles sold during the January through March, 1999 period.
