What am I missing

Ok,
JEEP
Is this too obvious or am I missing something?

Questions:

1. How can you build a special edition JK version called "Willys" (an obvious shout out to the original WWII MB that you blazen all over the other vehicles as a cutesy "easter egg") and not offer said JK IN THE COLOR T-A-N-K!!!!????

2. How can you build a cutesy little car based "Renegade" that is over loaded with easter eggs IN THE COLOR T-A-N-K!!!!????

Well... I guess I gotta slow down a bit... I based that rant on the recently updated Jeep website and went to build a Tank WW version and couldn't... but I just came across a dealer video showing off their brand new WW in Tank.
Ok Jeep good job on the reality... not a good job on the website.

I am still not sure about #2 though.

Re: What am I missing

It's okay to rant... there are a lot of things that Jeep does that make you go WTF?



BTW... I think tank looks awesome on the Wrangler.

Buy a Sport in Tank, throw-on a 2.5" shock/coil lift, some 33's or 34's, put a Willys sticker on the hood, and... Voila! You have your Willys in Tank! I wouldn't pay for a Willys anyway--it comes with wheels and tires that most people shitcan anyhow? It's just another special edition differentiated by little more than a sticker on the hood... Take the Willys sticker off the hood and put on a Moab sticker, and now you have a Moab edition! Yay!!

Re: What am I missing

You should read a Willys sticker and see what comes on one. It's a nice package and includes a lot more than a "sticker". It's not for everyone, but it is a neat group of options.

Most of those options you're talking about are available on other (read: less expensive) Jeeps and aren't Willy's exclusive.

There is a less expensive version?... not in my neck of the woods.
Ok. Buying a sport makes a lot of sense if you S-C wheels, drive components and suspension. I agree.
If you want an "out of the box" Sport S that is as capable as a Willys "out of the box"... then no... you will not save money buying the Sport S and putting in the same options... Biggest change, Willys have MTs, Sport S street tires.
What ever price compare you do for a special edition is based on the logic of "I like it pre-packed like this and I probably will buy floor mats and call it a day".
If you modify Jeeps then a Special Edition is a waste of money. If you are going to modify a Willys then just get a Rubicon and put bigger tires on it and you'd have a the best 4x4 out there.

The BF KM's that come with the Willys are a poor man's mud tire. The Willys is basically a few stickers and a different hood--it's like a Moab edition. It's a joke of sorts...like every Jeep special edition.

So I'm guessing that means whatever YOU choose to drive is not a joke? Give us all a break... practically every vehicle ever made has had special editions, limited editions etc etc... is all part of the fun. But of course... someone like you has to come along and belittle others trying to make yourself feel bigger. Suffering from the "Little Man Syndrome" there my friend? Go back to France Napoleon.... you are nothing but a joke here. Let me guess... you put wheel spacers on your jeep today so you feel all mean and pumped up... is that it? Btw... seeing as how you are the resident Jeep expert... since when does a Willys edition come with a different hood? Man... it never fails, every forum has some dork tough guy wannabe pushing others around.... go back to the mall little boy. I'm sure you're very quiet and well behaved there right?
