"Chili Pepper Ed?

anybody know anything about these "special editions"? As in, are they modified in any way other than the color and special stickers? I have one that I bought directly from the previous owner and I don't really know alot about it. I'm looking to do some minor modifications, but I'd like to know what I have first.

I'm not positive on how they are different from other wranglers though, I am pretty sure they had a rear D44. I also think they made 1500 "chili pepper" TJs.

I have never seen a YJ in a Chili Pepper ED besides it's not even Chili Pepper Red. As far as I know it was 2000 model year only and there were on 500. There were lots of them that color but only 500 got the badgeing. It wasn't a factory done item but it was from Fortec Jeep. I never had any luck locateing stickers for mine.

THAT is the key piece of info.
There have been lots of dealership "editions." Some are only decals, some have a few accessories added. (Chrome tube bumpers?! gimmeabreak) None are factory, and no value has been added.

I do like that Chile Pepper decal though!

The sticker the plaque and the chrome bumpers were the only difference between them and a chilli pepper red sport.

Yes - and - Maybe, first you have to determine if it was a Sport or X or whatever to start with. Coulda been anything.

They were all 4.0 but before the X package came about. I did find a link to the package on Fortec Dist. website one time. The sticker the plaque and the chrome bumpers added $3500

JEEP didn't.
Dealer "packages" were generally ripoffs. errr... sales gimmicks ;-)

as in $3500 for tube bumpers and a decal...
