Two American icons come together with the Jeep brand's official partnership with USA Basketball. As a focal point of this partnership, the Jeep brand introduced its special edition model, the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Altitude featuring a new, more powerful V6 engine and customized interior and exterior design cues.


Unified in their drive for excellence, the Jeep brand joins USA Basketball in rallying the "Power Within" as the National Teams endeavor to realize their dream. "The Jeep brand embodies the American spirit," states Chris Paul, campaign spokesman and member of the 2012 USA Basketball Men's National Team. Paul appears in a partnership behind-the-scenes video series as well as a TV spot featuring the music of hip-hop artist, Common, giving voice to "a legendary vehicle supporting a legendary team."

Launching the start of the exhibition season, the USA Basketball Men's National Team hits the road on 5 July with the opening of training camp in Las Vegas. To celebrate the tour, the Jeep brand teamed up with acclaimed designer Jeff Staple to create the Believe Collection, featuring custom items (some limited to 25 pieces each), including an exclusive, handmade basketball by Leather Head and a basketball duffel bag designed by 3x1, handcrafted from American selvedge denim.

3x1 also contributes a custom scarf that tops off a classic look along with the collection's vintage inspired, limited edition Ft. Knox sunglasses by Knockaround. Combining timeless appeal with the latest in technology, the collection also includes custom editions of sleek Aviator Headphones by Skullcandy, custom protective iPad and iPhone cases from Uncommon and a Big Jambox, a hi-fi portable wireless speaker by Jawbone. Built NY contributes the Cargo Travel Organizer, a must-have case for keeping cords together while on the go.
