Chili Pepper edition

I have a 2000 Wrangler chili pepper edition. What exactly does chili pepper edition mean? Is it just the color of the Jeep?

As far as I can tell, from a Google search, it's one of 1500 made. Like the Tomb Raider , Willy's, ect. Edition, it's just a marketing thing. Nothing really special, except to those who have have one.

You mean like this one?






I always thought it represented the paint code. We had one at our dealer around 99 and it was the same as other wranglers except for the paint...which I totaly dig.

There were 500 of these produced. There will be a gold placquard that shows the number you have. I will say 1 of 500 or 315 of 500 and so on until it reaches 500 of 500. The color is the red chili pepper.

I need to compare the value of the 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sport Chili Pepper Edition (1 of 500) to the regular 2000 Jeep wrangler. Black soft top, alloy wheels, 5 spd, 6 cyl 4.0 L, no winch,

They are not necessarily any more valuable. Unlike most other "collector cars", most buy Tj's to Mod. Modding would "destroy" any perceived value a 'buzz model" would have, so most are not going to pay a premium. Not saying there isn't somebody out there that absolutely "has to have that one" but its a very tiny market.

There could be premium just for being a hot color (some will pay an addition $500 or $1000 to get a cool color.

Yup, saw that one in person at a Jeep Camp. The tires were custom cut, just for that concept.
