Jeep sales were down 2% in November compared with 2006 - dragged down mainly by Commander sales which were down 45%

From the press release:
Chrysler LLC dealers delivered 161,088 new vehicles to U.S. customers in November 2007, down 2 percent compared with a year ago. All sales figures are reported as unadjusted.

"Despite consumer concerns, Chrysler LLC sales are off only 2 percent showing customers are still purchasing quality and value. High fuel prices and falling home prices continue to impact vehicle sales in November which remain below trend," said Darryl Jackson, Vice President - U.S. Sales. "We remain optimistic moving into December due to the growing availability of new models, including Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan and the Jeep Liberty."

High fuel prices impacted Jeep(R) brand results, down 2 percent versus November of last year. Large SUVs saw the greatest impact with Jeep(R) Commander down 45 percent at 4,391 units versus November 2006.
