Wrangler Willys on Official Jeep Site, Jeep Sales Still Declining

Date 2003/10/4 0:00:00 | Topic: Sales

The Willys can now be found on the official Jeep site, but not where you'd think. Sales not looking up.

The official Jeep Web site (www.Jeep.com) has some information on the Jeep Wrangler, Willys Edition - although it's not where we expected to find it. It is located in the "Jeep Life" area of the site - not under the "Wrangler" category. Oh well - either way, it's there. Thanks to all the readers who sent us in this direct link to the page.  

Also - another reader gave us a heads up to these pictures posted by The Windsor Jeep Club. Check them out!
