Jeep featuring new Islander limited edition

by David Zatz on
After a hiatus of over 20 years, the Jeep Wrangler Islander will appear for 2010, as a limited production edition available for a $995 (MSRP) surcharge over the usual Wrangler Sport or Wrangler Unlimited Sport price.

The Islander package is an addition to Sport models, on both Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited; it is available by special order only, requires the body to be Surf Blue (PQD).
Islanders will be made in February 2010, with production reportedly in the hundreds rather than thousands.
In addition to standard Sport equipment, the Islander added the 32 inch wheel and tire group, with 17 inch aluminum painted black wheels and LT 225/75R17 mud-terrain T/A tires; tubular side steps; a unique decal; dark gray seats with surf blue inserts and blue logos stitched in; a leather-wrapped steering wheel with blue accent stitching; and rubber slush mats.

Update: in some areas, the Islander package appears to be available in white or black, as well; but availability appears to be limited to one Islander based on the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited per dealer (in other words, two Islanders per dealer). This, too, may vary by region. (Thanks, “71cuda”)
