Bought my first TJ, Willys edition. What does this mean for me? Haha

I've always wanted a jeep and now that I finally have one of my own I bought the coolest one I could find, but I know little about it since it was used. It's a 2005 TJ wrangler Willys edition and I wish I knew what the whole name meant. I plan on keeping this baby forever and taking it wherever I go. Just wanted to know if anyone out there could enlighten me on exactly what the Willys edition is. I've done a little reading up on the subject but still want some clarification...

Welcome to the forum.

The long and short of it is that its a Wrangler X with a trim package for collectors and WWII buffs, not a whole lot different than a normal wrangler except for the few things that come factory that most people change anyways. Quick question, are you sure its an actual Willy's edition or did someone just put a Willy's sticker on it?

Heres part of an article from truck trend:

Designed for collectors, veterans, and outdoor adventurers, the new version of the Jeep Wrangler Willys comes in Moss Green, with dark-green Styled Steel wheels with black inserts, and super-tough dark-green rockrails borrowed from the Wrangler Rubicon.

Its warrior heart is Jeep's 4.0-liter Powertech I-6 engine, with a five-speed manual transmission and heavy-duty Quadra-Coil suspension. Standard issue is Jeep's Command-Trac four-wheel-drive system and plenty of ground clearance along with healthy approach, departure, and breakover angles, whether you're a weekend warrior or have the soul of a GI.

Included with the Willys option package (coded ASY) is a Willys decal for the front, body-colored fender flares, dual tow hooks, foglamps, full-size spare with matching wheel, removable metal half-doors and fold-down windshield, AM/FM stereo with CD player and seven speakers, and subwoofer in the locking center console, which has four cupholders. The package also comes with water-resistant camouflage seating, weather-resistant electronics, and a dark-green soft-top.

I believe there were only two thousand made in each year of 04 and 05. I think it's a Willys edition mostly for the color scheme and camo seats

I'll post more pictures as soon as I take em! whoever had this last did some work on it but I think it's a Willy. One feature of a willy that it said on some website was that the windshield folds down, which mine does. The entire inside controls or whatever are waterproof but maybe all jeeps are like that? Like I said I barely know anything about this vehicle let alone jeeps in general! I'm keeping my ears wide open and taking any tips I can get! Right now I'm working on trying to make it auto-theft proof but I heard if someone wants the car bad enough they'll be able to take it no matter what kind of "security" devices you've got. Anywho. Thanks for the responses!

All Wranglers have windshields that fold down. If you aren't sure, you can request a build sheet.

Go here and click on the "owners" link. Enter your vin and they will e-mail you your build sheet.
