Here's mine. My understanding is they are fairly rare, only offered in 2003 in the Inca Gold.

Based on the Craig's list prices, it appears many Jeepers think their YJs are made out of solid gold.

There was one cruising around the streets of Virginia a year ago when I bought my TJ. Gotta admit I'm a fan of the color

Inca Gold is awesome, wasn't it offered only in model year 2003? explains why you do not see many.

Hi guys and gals. It looks like these people did the research you ae looking for. 212 is the answer and that is coming from Chrysler.

212 would be just the Rubicons but there were also Inca Gold SE, X, and Sports and no IG Saharas.

Rubicons were roughly 1/5th of all TJ's in 2003 so if you project that ratio that would mean we would expect maybe a total of 1,000 Inca Gold TJs (probably less than that) but that would just be a wild guess on my part. Still a very low number.

Here's mine. I have not seen another one in my area but my brother 17 miles south has mistaken some guy down there several times as he even has the exact same rims. Have tried to find him but no luck yet!

Looks great Steve! I'm hoping that mine looks similar in the spring.

I haven't seen another one this color on the road. That's part of the reason I bought it.

Thanks Ron! When I went out to buy a Jeep, I actually wanted an all black one in color (among other things I had on my list) but then I saw the gold one and immediately forgot about the black.

6" pocket flares off of Craigslist. Got them last winter for $100. I was getting a lot of ice build up from not having enough coverage over my tires.

I think desert sand looks more gold than the inca gold, which looks more yellow to me. That said I like the inca gold color a lot.

If you've ever seen it in person, it may change your mind. It's very gold in the sun light.

I've seen quite a few. The sun does help for sure. Still think desert sand looks pretty gold. Especially in the sun!

Please ignore the fact that my hood has like barely any clear coat left. Hahaha. It used to pop a heck of a lot more. But 16 years does a number on paint.

This must be like that whole blue/black dress thing from several months ago. The desert sand looks more brown or tan to me...a nice color of it's own for sure, but brownish to me. The inca gold definitely looks gold (to me) and I can't see any yellow in it. I have had mine right next to a yellow TJ more than once and there is a big difference.

Ron, can I ask where you picked up those rims and how much they set you back? Thinking they'd look as good on mine as we have identical rides! The more I look at yours, the more I like them.
