Very limited edition jeep?

Last year I bought a TJ from a pawn shop. So I was given next to nothing for previous owner info. It is a 2001, with a 5 speed and the 4.0. I suspect the rest is a dealer optioned package, or it is some sort of one off for a giveaway. The seats, badging, and rims all have a logo that says 50th Anniversary Rubicon Trail, Jamboree. I have a Jamboree hood decal too. When I search this hood decal I find that it seems to have only been used in Europe and maybe Canada as an option, but wasn't linked to any anniversary edition. I have a placard in my glovebox that tells me this was serial number 005 of this edition, but nothing else. A history check tells me this was always a Colorado Jeep. Since it is a Colorado registered Jeep from day one, celebrating a California trail, I think this could be a dealer gimmick, but the seats are embroidered and the rims were not a stock option for Jeep. That makes it a pretty involved and expensive Dealer Package. I love the Jeep no matter what, but if this is a lost bit of Jeep history, it may affect my plans to lift/modify it. Anyone have any ideas or opinions on what it may be?
Edit: adding pics

I saw one of these on craigslist once. The ad stated there was a very limited run, I can't recall if 50 or 500 total.

If its legit, not faked, and you have #5 that's probably pretty special.

Does it have a plaque in the dash with the serial prominently displayed? The one I saw did...edit: I re-read your post, so I'm not sure if the owner of the one I saw mounted it himself or if it came that way.

I want to say the one I saw was orange in color, but I don't recall. I would imagine such a limited run they'd all be the same color.

Pics would be nice.

My plaque is metal and likely was dash mounted at one time but came loose and ended up in the glovebox. The Jeep is blue but this would be a pretty unusual run to try and fake. I am a a freeloader here so I don't have an avatar pic but I think you can see my pics in my profile if you go there.

No idea how to do that, but I can give it a try. I'd like a copy no matter what. If you have a link or a quick tip to request the sheet, let me know. Otherwise I can search for the how to when I have time.

OK, figured out the pics...



EDIT:The logo on the side is repeated on the seats and on the centers of the rims.
Embroidered on the seats, same kind of sticker/badge on the rims.

my father has an '82 CJ that is a 30th anniversary of the trail. Makes sense for a 50th.

I can't take pics of the inside at the moment. I will add them later. The interior description is standard Jeep TJ but with Black Denim seats/roll pads. All are a little faded, so the embroidery is no longer multi color but you can see where it had been if you look closely. I had black/dark gray carpets in it but took those out last year and haven't looked back. Yes it has a color matched top and AC. It also has a Dana 44 with 3.73 gears, apparently stock as well. The pics make the fender flares look color matched but they are just faded to gray.
