Desert Sand Colored Jeep Wrangler?

I'm having trouble finding any Jeeps with this color.

I'm looking to buy a Jeep soon, and I would absolutely love to find this color.

I can't find much info on the web but it seems like Wranglers came in this color in '99 and '00 which is around the year I want to buy my Wrangler.

If anyone knows a term to search for the actual color (is it desert sand? Tan?) and knows what other years/models have this color it would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Are you talking about the Khaki metallic color?

I also like the Desert Sand color on the Sahara.

That's a nice find Kate!
But that ugly diamond plate corner guard and chrome gas door just have to go.
Kinda ruins the look IMO.
They both would've looked better in black.

I agree! That's the first thing I thought when I saw the photo. "That corner guard needs to go!
Maybe the billett aluminum hood latches too.

Yea! Black would look GREAT, but chrome or polished aluminum, naw.. not for me.

I like that color, but I'd prefer a flat tan more military like.

Didn't even see the hood latches.
Yuk.
Not sure what the previous owner was thinking.
To each their own I guess.

Speaking of black corner guards...
Have you seen those plastic black diamond plate corner gaurds?
WTF?
And they cost $80 to boot.

I have that color, I get a lot of compliments. Had to search for a while before I found it. One downfall however is that it is hard to locate touch-up paint that matches. If anybody know any links to some that does match, I would appreciate it.

So I need 15 posts eh?


Found this Jeep : Wrangler: eBay Motors (item 320589244714 end time Sep-18-10 19:00:00 PDT)

but don't think the auction is long enough to feel comfortable buying it and would like the Sahara 6 cylinder to have some power.

These things are hard to find in this color and getting them painted is so expensive.

Yep bud 15 post,but that is easy to obtain.

I guess finding them depends on location. I probably see 4 of the sahara's everyday and many of non sahara's rolling around the midwest.
