Jeep CJ Islander??

Ok, I have been looking and looking, but the earliest I've found was an 1989 YJ Islander. I was wondering if there were any CJ "Islanders" made? Reason I'm asking, I have been told that I might be moving back to Guam a year from now. Just thought it would be cool to restore and old Islander and bring it to an actual island. Weird sense of humor. If there weren't any made, I guess I could just get some decals. Thanks.

The islander was strictly a YJ thing.

Per wiki

"North American YJ/Wrangler were available in the following standard trims.

* Base (also referred to as "S" & "SE" at different points in the model run; first few years the back seat and rear bumperettes were optional, some years the 6cyl engine was an option, other years only the 4cyl was available in the "Base" model)
* Laredo (Chrome grille, bumpers, and trim, hard top and hard full doors, tinted windows, faux leather interior, body color fender flares and alloy wheels)
* Islander (which included "Sunset" Islander graphics and body colored wheel flares)
* Sport (which featured "sport" graphics and, beginning in 1991, a 4.0 L 242 CID inline-6 cylinder engine)
* Sahara (which came standard with most available options, including body color fender flares and alloy wheels)
* Renegade (which ran until 1994, and featured a similar option package as Sahara, but added premium wheels, deluxe interior group as well as oversized "Renegade" wheel flares and body cladding)
* Rio Grande (Available in champagne gold, moss green and white, with a Pueblo themed interior trim package, this trim was only available in 1995 and was added to spice up the base model Wrangler 'S' hence this trim was only available with the 4-cylinder models)"

These, in the day when heaven was falling, The hour when earth's foundations fled, Followed their mercenary calling, And took their wages, and are dead.

Their shoulders held the sky suspended; They stood, and earth's foundations stay; What God abandoned, these defended, And saved the sum of things for pay.

I had a 1989 White Jeep YJ Islander with gray hardtop that was my first Vehicle

bought it used in 1990 with 20,000 miles on it bought it for $10,500

tough jeep don't know how I didn't flip it in the Sand Pits we wheeled in

Their really weren't any difference between the Sahara and the Islander

Just Color ,Seat Interior and Graphics My Uncle had a Sahara at the time

Think the Islanders came in White,Blue,red and Yellow paint jobs at the time

I don't see many of them on the road anymore here in VA

The fringe definitely screams "Islander". Or maybe something else.
