calling all 'Willys Edition' owners
 
any here besides myself ? i have a '05 Willys Edition (since last week :-) speak up if you have one, and share a photo as well.

I also have had an 05 willys edition for a little over a year now. I live in the Hudson Valley region of NY, and I would guess I have seen 3-4 other willys around. I will post some pics soon.

rudeboy 08-15-2011 08:21 AM

cool tella, i see you're not scared to get it dirty ;-)... thanks for chiming in, we're at a grand total of 3 ;)

tella 08-16-2011 10:19 PM

getting it dirty is the best part, until it's time to clean it then it takes forever

GoldenSahara00 08-16-2011 10:24 PM

Calling all Willys Ed owners, can I please have *hi res* pictures of all your decals as I'm "willying" my forest green TJ and will need to produce my own Photoshop PSDs for my local vinyl cutter here in New Zealand. (and if you could give measurements of decals that would be even better!)

flyfishnevada 08-17-2011 10:23 PM

OMG!! I had no idea such a thing existed. Very cool! I'm a little envious.

MikeMTJ 08-17-2011 10:27 PM

I've only seen one Willys Edition on the road. The 4 Wheel Drive Parts up here I'm Cleveland has one sitting in there store....collecting dust. I don't understand!

flameredTJ 08-17-2011 10:46 PM

My girl and her late husband had one. They got it after he had a wreck in his TJ. He ended up upsided down in a creek after going off the road between two bridges. His TJ held up and pretty much saved his life. They got the willys edition to replace his TJ but were unable to keep it. Brain injury from the wreck forced him to quit working.

i can take some photos for you tonight, all decals ? (there's a star on the hood, 41MB-05TJ, "Willys" on the side above the "Jeep" and "Fuel" above or underneath fuel cap "hole" :)

don't know either, did not ask the dealer i bought it from how long he had it. a dealer in Indiana has 2 of them for sale --if he still has them, flameredTJ actually posted a photo of one of the ones in Indiana.

mattjm1017 08-18-2011 02:35 PM

I got one here in VA I have only seen one other one I beleive they were a limited production. I love mine just wish I could find a new top in the same color Im going to have to buy a new one soon and I guess it will have to be black. But other than that I love it.

cool, from what i understand there were 2000 made in '04, and 2000 in '05. downside of that as you discovered, some special parts like the top will be hard or impossible to find. share some photos if you can... working on a web site and hoping to feature some other Willys Editions besides my own.

I know of one Willys edition in Wyoming. Saw it in Yellowstone a few weeks back and it had Wyoming plates. First one I had ever seen! :thumb:

Chrysler owns the name "Willys" They need to use it every so often in order to keep it from falling into public domain. The package is all trim level stuff. Green steel wheels, white stencil Willys decals (military looking), a green soft top, and green camo seats. I think that is it, but there may have been a few more things.

markzeronine 08-18-2011 03:19 PM

do they have a d35 or 44 rear? or is it an option like it was in sport/sahara trim?

I think they look best with the factory steel wheels

thanks flameredTJ... but they're a little small to get a good idea of size/reproduce - I have found some on google too but not really the detail/resolution i need
