Not exactly a Wrangler, but the Hurst edition of the Jeepster Commando is the rarest Jeep. Look for the hood scoop with an RPM gauge, and big red and blue stripes going across the hood. They're worth some money now.

More recently, Jeep has done a bunch of packages, most of which don't really add up to enough of a difference to count (the Willy's Edition, etc).

I would bet Lee Indy is correct.

The LJ is likely to be the only real collectible from the recent Wrangler lines. And a Rubi would be the best of those.


The Sedona Pink Jeep tours are famous, in large part because they painted the Jeeps like that. Great marketing.

Most people think of our Trektop and the Viking top as being the closest in style. Not sure of any others with this look. We make one for the LJ, but I don't know if viking does or not.

i believe the tj's golden eagle edition is relatively rare as well.

I noticed the headlights. Not positive, but they look aftermarket.

thats the money right there. ive never peronally owned a bestop but have sold alot from your utv line when i worked at a yamaha dealer. good quality. how do the windows come off? is it similar to the viking. they only make a TJ.

and how about one that just covers the front and rear seats and leaves the trunk open. im gonna have mine hard covered and sealed.

Well the "Rubicon" would be first thing then the LJ model

As for colors, 2003 had Electric Lime Green and Inca Gold as specialty colors

I believe that 05/06 came out with Impact Orange as the specialty color

based on what I've read the Black 60th anniversary editions are rare (less than 1900 IIRC). but I know little about Jeeps so that number might not be that rare. But there doesn't seem to be much to really set them apart, so it may not matter...

The windows on this one do not come off. The goal was simplicity - so no struts and bars, just goes right over the sport bar. Does now have a tailgate bar so you can opne the tailgate without redoing the velcro.

Front and rear seat cover: you can do what we call a halftop (windjammer, bikini and duster as a bundle, basically.).
