Project Willys starts with a limited edition wrangler TJ model that Jeep only produced so many of in 04 & 05. Considered a limited edition model because there are only a 2k made each year. With a little hunting around in Southern California we were lucky enough to find one to buy new from the Dealer. What makes the willy's unique is the features and badging. Some of the special features include factory camo seats with dark moss green interior, soft top, fenders flares, wheels, rocker panels, and anything else you could imagine came in dark moss green. The badging Jeep decided to use replicates some of the logo's you'd find on the original willy's military Jeeps. A star on the hood, ID tag along the side of the hood, "fuel" over the gas filler, and the willys logo on the side panels.

It's just a "cosmetic" package. nothing more.

It's..."willy's package" trim...

Willys Edition - 2004-2005
* 4.0L I-6 engine....not a special option or motor.
* Exclusive Moss Green exterior color....proven that is NOT "exclusive" to just the willy's
* Water resistant Camo and black seats
* Unique "WILLYS" decal at cowl side...only if the original buyer paid extra for the stickers.
* Diamond plate rocker guards painted Dark Green....same as the factory rubicon rockers just painted greenish
* Body-color fender flares ....same with the sahara or most other "special" packages.
* AM/FM stereo radio with CD player and seven speakers (includes subwoofer in center console) - no extra charge....option for any TJ
* Tow hooks ...Option for any TJ
* Fog lamps.....Option for any TJ
* Full-size spare tire with matching wheel
Standard on ALL TJ's.

Willy's or any "special addition" wrangler is mainly trim options.

Also the D35 rear axle was standard with the option of D44 axle if the dealer or original buyer ordered it with one. Most all have the D35 rear. Standard with Basic steel wheels painted green.

They tend to sell for a tiny hair more because of the "hype" or idea of a army jeep. They are nice and I like them in their trim myself. Let us know what you decide.
Any more questions about it bud let us know.

I really like it, gonna wire some money down on it so i can go pick it up once i get on leave and head home.

I was tempted to spend more and get a rubicon, but i think i can make the willys into what i need for cheaper than paying for a full rubi.

The down side to a limited edition is that if you ever need replacement parts, like windows or a top or glove box door, etc. They will be much harder to find....... Love the way the Willy's look tho'
