    A reader from Orlando, Florida, sent us this info about the 99 Wranglers:

    I went and looked at twelve 99 TJ's today at a Dealer in Orlando, Fl. The most noticeable one was a Sahara in a color Jeep is calling Camel. This one came with the Spice Soft Top and in my opinion it did not look good in this color scheem. The 99's do have the rotary climate controls and a on/off switch for the passenger side air bag. This is located in the front part of the console surrounding the shifter. I did notice also they have new interior colors which looked better than the old. The Sahara still had the Grizzley Wheels and the Sahara spare tire cover. other than what I have mentioned and the new colors everything else looked to be the same as the previous models. The dealership did not have any books out on the showroom yet. The MSRP on the 99's look about the same as the 98's also.
