|Jason1348||Any chance someone replaced the tub and stickers were on it?|
|06-25-2013 09:17 PM|
|rumblehawk||I have the build sheet, it shows all the upgrades too. I think I will have the decals changed. Someone goofed in my favor.|
|06-25-2013 09:10 PM|
You got lucky!

|rumblehawk||My VIN# says it is a Sahara, but it has Sport Decals. And I have full steel doors and power windows...kind of confused, thinking I should change the decals.|

|Jason1348||Yes there a ton of rubicon fakes had a guy join are club and took him out with us to find out on the side of a nasty rutted hill it was just stickers he said|

|MarkGLHS||not too unusual to see someone try to make their TJ into a higher model. lots of phony Rubicons out there. scrape off those phony decals, get the right ones for your X and enjoy. before you do that post up a pix I am curious to see how well they faked the Sahara.|
|06-17-2013 04:43 PM|
now I know, got the build sheet...it's an X that now has color matching fender flairs and Sahara decals??
Thanks for all the input

You will have to go by the shape of the diff. Oval-ish D35. Stop sign-ish D44.

|Jeeper_Kreeper||I drive a 2000 sport and I was wondering how I would know if I have a Dana 44 the previous owner put a chrome different cover on is there some kind of stamp or badge on the axle|

|Teague242||Take some pictures of this jeep mate. Or else check the build sheet.|

I use this to verify Jeep options. Fill it out and ask for your option codes/build sheet.
BTW The Sahara had a lot more permutations then most people realize, I owned a 97 Sahara bought it new genuine Sahara. Green, Tan soft top tan interior, 4.0, Auto, 44 without locker in the rear 30 in the front, 4.10 gears, AC, Cruise and tilt wheel.
Rolled it over a exit ramp guardrail in the rain on 295 in Jacksonville Florida....totaled with 24k miles on it and a half empty payment book in the glovebox

Don't forget about the limited edition TJ they made after the movie "Sahara". It's a 2005.
My club's President owns one.
Rubicon Unlimited Sahara - 2005 only
* 1,000 made
* Chrome grill
* Tail light guards
* Interior badge with serial number
* Spare tire cover and floor mats
So an X cannot be a Sahara, but a Sahara can be a Rubicon, but only in a 2005 Unlimited. Lol!
Best to just contact Jeep with your vin # to find out how your Jeep was equipt from the factory.

Right on Jeeps website:
You can have your build sheet in about 10 minutes. You are welcome.

|gcan||what website or e-mail address do I use to request a build sheet? did a search and seems to be a lot of "small fee" sites|

the standard and optional content of the TJ Sahara changed from 1997 to the 2004 model year (last TJ Sahara was 2004), as did the seat fabric color. there's too many permutations of standard/optional Sahara equipment over the years to list here but as was suggested only a VIN decoding will tell the o.p. GCAN what model TJ he has...but if that 6th digit is not a 5, and it is a 2004 TJ, then it is not a Sahara model.
sounds like someone slapped a Sahara sticker on an X. doesn't surprise me after seeing all the X's and Sports with Rubicon hood decals on them.

In the case of South African models either tan fabric or charcoal leather.
|06-16-2013 07:38 PM|
Not from 03-06, they were tan. The Geen/tan was from 97-02
|06-16-2013 07:34 PM|
|UFOtestpilot||Maybe I missed it while skimming, but I would send an email to Chrysler requesting a build sheet on the VIN, not "decode" it with some potentially hokey information. The actual build sheet will dispel all rumors and/or doubts. They took a day or so to email me mine.|
|06-16-2013 06:49 PM|
|Jerry Bransford||The TJ Sahara has upgraded two-tone seats, usually tan & green. A good sharp well-lit (use a flash) photo of your seats will almost assuredly allow us to tell you if it's a Sahara or not.|

|03 sahara jeeper||The plug with the 5 wires behind the back seat is for the rear window defrost on a hard top.|
|06-16-2013 05:19 PM|
|gcan||there is a square plug with 4 or 5 wires going to it on the drivers side just behind the back seat, I assume that is what from the switches. But they will be great if I add fog lights!|
|06-16-2013 03:40 PM|
|06-16-2013 01:28 PM|
There will be a wiring harness for it in the back drivers side on the wheel well
|06-16-2013 01:16 PM|
|gcan||oh another crazy thing on this jeep, it's a soft top but on the dash next to the cig loighter it has a rocker for rear defroster and wiper....they light up with you push them but haven't checked it out yet|
|06-16-2013 01:07 PM|
the fender flares are the same color as the body, it has the 4.0 engine, soft top, air, cloth grey seats front and back.....we likey!
the rear diff has a rubber plug and the front has a steel plug
TJDAVE - you are right on, my wife loves the jeep which is why I said I don't plan to try to take it back to the guy....honestly I'm just learnig the differences, I bought the Jeep based on the price and looks not the model or series.
I'm just trying to learn the difference in case I have to order parts or such
|06-16-2013 01:01 PM|
|03 sahara jeeper||The best thing to do I like stated above, is to get a build sheet.|
