WranglerSightings of 2004 Wrangler Willys Edition
Posted by mike on 2003/9/29 0:00:00 (7558) reads

The 2004 Willys Edition Wrangler has been sighted on dealer lots.

We've had a couple of reader reports of readers sighting the 2004 Wrangler - Willys Edition. The www.Jeep.com site makes no mention of the Willys Edition, but several local dealerships are listing the Willys edition on their Web sites under the nameplate "Jeep Willys X".

Here's some of the details from the window sticker:

JEEP WRANGLER X
Exterior Color: Moss Green Pearl Coat
Interior Color: Dark Slate Gray
Interior: Seats - Camouflage Premium Cloth
Engine: Engine - 4.0L Power Tech I-6
Transmission: Transmission-4-Spd. Automatic, 42RLE
 
Willys Edition Group - $1,430
Seats - Camouflage Premium Cloth
Badge - Willys Edition
Fog Lamps
Sill Guards - Diamond Plate, Green
Wheels-15 X 7.0 Styled Steel,Painted
Speakers - 7, Inc Subwoofer/Tweeters
Wheel - Matching Spare
Spare Tire - Full Size
Windows - Deep Tint Sunscreen
Tow Hooks - (2) Front, (1) Rear 

Another reader writes...

It will be moss green with matching fenders,half doors and green top.  Only available with 4.0/5 speed combo, camo interior, no carpet, no charge cd player w/7 speaker sub woofer sound system.  The jeep will feature SE wheels painted green/black, Rubicon rockrails painted green.  As far as drivetrain will have command trac, Dana 30 front/rear axles.  Don't know about price, addition dealer add-ons will be a white vinyl letting kit and white star for hood.  Basically this is a tribute to the first willys jeep, if one did not know better they would think that this is a real army jeep!!!!!

If anyone spots any photos of this on the Web, let us know!

 Re: Sightings of 2004 Wrangler Willys Edition
i just bought a 2005 willy's edition and i love it. its got a 3 in BDS suspension lift, 16 in pacer stamped steel wheels, mickey thompson baja claw radials, tow package and a light bar. it looks great! from what ive read they only made about 2000 willy's editions between 2004 and 2005. it is truly an eye catcher. i am a military guy so you cant guess how many other military and retired military guys love my jeep. its a great jeep and i wouldnt trade it for anything!

I have had my Willy's Jeep for a few months, and I like it. I had to change the tires to 31's because the others were too small. Mine is a straight 6 standard. I have no clue about the other specs, as I'm not knowledgable about cars in general. It was a huge hit with my friends, heads turn all the time with it, and the jeep coop was impressed with it. It does need modifications (lift, lockers, tow kit) and as soon as I can find half doors for it, then I will get those. I have taken it out and done a bit of crawlin with it and although it couldnt keep up with the big boys, it certainly held its own. I love it, and look forward to when the warranty runs out and I can give it the modifications I need.

The very first thing I did was get rid of those silly tiny tires...lol :) I was able to put 31's on it with the wheels it came with, no problems at all. We weren't sure if the spare tire would fit or not with the top brake light, but it just barely did. I have a camo spare tire cover, and I had to take the tire off, put the cover on, and squeeze it back into place basically because the light is so close. But it works, looks great. This may sound silly, but lately I've seen those little 'balls' that people have hanging off the back of their trucks and whatnot...I figure my jeep is so small and stock right now that when I am able to lift it after the warranty runs out, I will hang a pair of those 'balls' on the jeep...because by then he will have grown up and they would have dropped..lol...eh..just an idea :P

By the way, for all other owners, contact Jeep and they will send you the 04 trail rated badge. It belongs on the Willys, but was optionally left of due to the other badging. Mind should be here in 7-14 days. If it ruins the look, I may leave it off, but at least you have the option.

I have seen 5 of these Willys Edition Jeeps at Gossett Jeep on Covington Pike, Memphis,TN 38128.

Some have 5spd, some have Automatic, steel wheels painted green/black center caps, camo material for seats(sits just like any other wrangler), Susp actually sits a little lower than a Rubicon parked 2ft away from it. A couple of inches lower or so. soft top(drk gray-slighty grn, it was 9pm), Complete with star on hood, stenciled ID letters on sides of hood, word 'FUEL' is stenciled on body above fuel filler cap, simply amazing.

I can't wait to get one!!!

-yeah, like that'll ever happen, cheapest one by window sticker was $24,200 give or take a little. Just Awesome! that's all i can say, awesome! But I just don't understand why it's not being proclaimed to all, i mean, you would think jeep would want everyone to know that one of the greats, has been reborn in an options package.

Alot of great comments here. I just purchased my first TJ and I chose the Willys. I paid 21,000 for it with 4.0/4-sp Auto/AC/Decal Package. But with rebate, trade allowance, and cash down with 0% I actually feel like I am closer to an automobile investment than ever before. I had a 97 ZJ with a few mods that I missed terribly when I traded it for a Toyota Tacoma. Well, I am back in the Jeep family now. (I missed the Jeep Owner wave) I LOVE the willys edition, though I do have some mixed feelings. Getting some 31's soon. I also will be adding an ARB/Warn combo and nerf bars. I love the matching green everywhere, Weather-resistant electronics and seats, deep tint plastic, sill guards... Would have preferred a Manual trany, but these things are getting much harder to come by. Diff locks will also be added with Dana 44 in the rear. Hopefully when these things are all done, it should be a rockin Willys.

I bought my Willys Jeep about a month ago. It's my first Jeep and I love it. Mine has all the decals. It catches a lot of attention. I think people look at it as restored, not new. I had no idea so few were made. I found a sight where you can see several closeup shots of the special features (badging, interior etc) at JEEPIN.com. Does anyone know the meaning of the decal on the hood. It reads 41MB-04TJ. I think the 04TJ signifies the year (2004) and body type TJ. Is 04MB the very first model.

Does anyone have information on the break in period for the Jeep 4.0; I have found a lot of inconsistent information at different web sites which has left me more confused than informed.

i.e.; change oil after 500, 1500 or 3000 miles.
Use light weight 5W/30 until broke in then fully synthetic???? Drive it like hell or baby it????

The Willy legend is pretty funny - military music, pictures from WWII of the jeep. Does anyone know where I can get the Mopar decal package?

Saw a Wrangler Willys at Action Motors in Danbury Ct this afternoon. It appears as if it is a specially trimmed Wrangler X with SE wheels and decals. The sticker price was approx $22K which included air conditioning and floor mats.
Tires are small SE type.
Don't know why anyone would want A/C with a soft top. Gives me the incentive to get the brakes fixed on my '51 M38 Willys..the original.
Maybe they would take it in trade as it is mint and only has 26K miles.

I work at a midwest located Jeep dealer,and as of this morning in my dealer "compact" news I get every week is this story :Jeep produced 1000 special Wrangler willys vehicles that feature a moss green exterior and camouflage interior.To enhance this great vehicle,we have created a special Mopar Willys Package that includes fog light covers,taillamp gaurds,and 3 vanilla colored decals (hood star,fender numbers,and fuel door label)

250 of these were produced with the Willys package,the remaining 750 can be enhanced with the Mopar package which is no available ( Part # 82208737 ) MSRP $249.00 ....

That is word for word......

If I hear more I will let you know...

Actually, that's a modified Safari. I'm not sure where he got the Willys stickers but looking through his pages you can see it is a Safari package in the "before" pics.

I purchased my '04 Willy's Edition back in Feb, have not seen another like it on the road in six states since then! It gets lots of attention, most people stop to comment on how cool of a modification I did to my X...they don't know any better! The first thing I did of course was put real tires on it. Yep, 31X10.5X15's worked great on the stock moss green steel rims and don't rub on the well at all. I customized my decal kit with Air Force stickers, being how I was in the Air Force for nine years, and it gets lots of looks around town and on the trail. I've done general simple add-ons, but looking to make it rock proof here soon before christmas.
If anyone who owns a '04 Willy's wants to email me for upgrade ideas, please do. Otherwise, see ou on the trail!

Just bought my 2004 Willys edition jeep 11/16/03. I have found that most dealerships seem to be practically uninformmed on this new edition. The vehicle looks awesome and turns heads every where I drive it. The dealership added 31" tires with custom black wagon wheels which gives it the tall Rubicon look. The camo print seats are a hit with everyone who sees it. I feel that this is the coolist edition jeep has ever released to date.

My only disappiontment is the power; the 4.0 liter feels a little weak for what I had anticipated. Maybe some tweaking of the intake and exhaused will add some more power,I hope. Requardless its a blast to drive.

I couldnt wait. I did this to my YJ when Band of Brothers first showed up on HBO in 2001. I was inspired so to speak. After I did it I noticed a jeep dealership in Hammond, Indiana was selling a dark green jeep with a vinyl star kit. Didnt know I was a trend setter, lol. My wife thought i was a nut for not leaving it red. Anyway I tink its an outdamnstanding version of the wrangler. Hope the link works.

Saw a new Willys edion Wrangler at a local dealer.
5-speed/4.0/camo cloth interior/painted wheels/half doors with deep tint/tow hooks/Willys emblems. Just a special-edition X for those who remember the old name, I guess. List on the one I saw was $22,485.

Jeep does mention the Willys version of the Wrangler on the Jeep.com site. This page has been available to view for weeks now and includes a small picture. Go to the Jeep.com site and search for the key word "Willys" and you will see this link: http://www.jeep.com/jeep_life/news/jeep/willys.html?context=jeep_life-news-index&type=link

Daimler-Chrysler should've had you on the Willys design team. You did a much better job on your TJ than they did with the Willys.

I like the Willys idea, but I'd rather see those decals on a green rubicon.

They had one of these at the Jeep 101 course at Camp Jeep 2003. I thought it was pretty cool idea except for the high gloss green paint. I mean how many of the original willy's came with gloss paint? Just my opinion.

here is my comment: Why did they make this Jeep with 3.07 gears and wimpy axles? All thay had to do is make this a special Rubicon and I, along with many true Jeep lovers would Probably buy one. But to take a bearly visable tire size, that should not even be on a Jeep, Let alone a small car. This is a slam to The Willy's name. And I think this type of use of a very Proud heritage for sales is a gross misuse of the willy's name and military haritage. My father will probably flip in his grave.

I considered that quite high saying I paid &24,600 for my Liberty -- raised 2.5, widened 4, 275R7016 Toyo Proxes S/T tire -- the way the Liberty should come from the factory -- a great bajaer and a fair rockcrawler. Anyway enough about my Liberty. The Willys is sharp looking and will attract a certain type of jeeper. For a few grand more you can drive away in a Rubicon. The new Willys has inspired me to finish my 1952 Willys M38A1 -- if I find the time.

On the positive side, it takes me back to the 89-91 Sahara, which had a more utilitarian appearance than newer Saharas. I really like that aspect of the Willys Edition - especially the painted wheels.

On the negative side, I just don't like the star, the military lettering theme, and the camo interior. It just looks a little cheap or tacky IMO, but thats just me.

The Willys Edition is actually pretty cool...saw one on a dealer's lot in Ware, MA last weekend. Especially like the camouflage seats.

Here are some pics of the 2004 Willys Edition (some of the above links didn't work). They were taken at a dealership in Michigan by a Jeeper from Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

When I first saw the pics, I thought it was just a regular Wrangler X that the dealer had done up - didn't realize it was going to be a real package from Jeep.

We have a 2003 Rubicon and a 2003 Sport. Although the decal package and paint scheme is nice, I'd have liked to see . . . well, let's say I regularly hope and pray Jeep didn't fire the guy who came up with the Rubicon idea. If the Willys edition had heavier axles, a locking diff and SERVICEABLE JOINTS, I'd be a lot more interested.

As I feel very sure Tomb Raider sales are showing, buyers are a lot more interested in guts than glitz. If anyone is interested in seeing what we do with our jeeps, come visit our page at:

The pics are spectacular and I'm going to add video clips next.

I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Willy's Edition. I love it. I have ordered the Decal kit and fog lamp covers. The only other thing I did was take my old tires (same as the Rubicon). I received several compliments from the dealer and several other Jeep Owners.

My Willys came with all the stickers and the dealer also added to them by putting the dealership's website on each side of the hood using the vanilla decals, in the fashion of the serial number on the original Willys. This Jeep drives differently than my 1990 one did, not as bouncy. It's more like driving a car than a Jeep and I have to admit that I will miss my old one in that way. Over all, the Willys is definitely my favorite.

Bought my 2005 Willys the same month it was made - Sep 2004. This is my second Jeep, and my first purchased brand new.

Mine doesn't have the sticker package, and the dealer didn't offer it. I would probably have passed on it anyway. What it does have is full front doors and a 6 speed manual transmission. I could have saved a few bucks with the 2004, but once I drove the 6-speed I had to have it. Maybe it's because my first Jeep had a THREE speed manual, and I really missed having at least a 4-speed.

Ya'll take care,
Tom

I PICKED MINE UP TWO DAYS AGO IT IS A GREAT JEEP. I'VE BEEN LOOKING AT WRANGLERS FOR AWHILE TRYING TO CONVINCE MYSELF TO COUGH UP THE MONEY FOR ONE. SEEING THE WILLYS CONVINCED ME ON THE SPOT. I THINK IT IS CLOSER TO THE SPORT MODEL, THAN THE X, WITH THE FOGLIGHTS AND TOW HOOKS. MINE CAME EQUIPED WITH A TRAC-LOCK DIFFERENTIAL ON DANA 35 IN THE REAR. FOR THE MONEY THIS IS A VERY WELL EQUIPED WRANGLER PLUS THE WILLYS BADGE. HOW CAN YOU LOSE?
