Also... Does anyone on TC own one of these Rare Jeeps...???
Has anyone seen one on the road?
As far as I know, it was sold on the west coast. Not sure if it was
available in CA... lots of restrictive regulations there. Only 5,000
were built & they were all pre-sold to dealers in a 3-day period.
They are an "update" of the Islander edition that was offered 20
years earlier. The 20yo Islanders have a "sunset" logo at the bot-
tom of the door and likely some Islander badging of SOME kind.
NOT sure of any other features of the 20yo version.
Well, I own one of the 2010 models, a 2-door in "Surf Blue". It
now has 47,000 miles on it. I ended up getting one of the "Tiki
Bob" spare tire covers as well (the s. t. c. runs about $80 from
I see others on the road here in MI from time to time (including
one EXACTLY like mine in Brighton MI) PLUS I saw a 20yo one
at a gas station in Battle Creek AND know of a used car lot in
the Detroit metro area with a red 20yo version for sale for $5k
(no tiki graphics, of course).
