Well, I know many had reservations about this one but I ended up pulling the trigger on this 06 Wrangler 65th Anniversary edition yesterday. It has a salvage title from a front end hit but after talking to the shop that did the work and checking it in person I decided to go for it. I ended up getting it for what I think was a very good price and this is going to be a perfect driving project for me and the family to enjoy!

Here is our new addition...

I already have a Brown Dog Super Kit on the way (one of the bolts on the engine bracket is busted off) and will hopefully tackle it this week. After that I want to get a new stereo head unit and then work on washing and polishing/waxing. I'm excited to be a part of the TJ family!

Wow that's nice, congrats on the purchase! It looks great, super clean, love the color and the wheels!

Are those leather seats? And is that Sasquatch in the front windshield?

Just need +1 Trail Rated badge for the passenger side :)

That's a very nice colour and super clean by the looks of things too.....Personally I'd be painting that centre dash console to match the outside but other than that it looks very nice. You would never know it had front end damage.

I really like the idea of painting the center section to match, great suggestion!

Super clean, sweet ride! Low mileage too!

What's the build like on the Anniversary edition? It has the body-color flares like a Sahara, AC and cruise. Is the rest of the build like a Sahara?

Thank you sir! So it's basically an X model with a few added features:

SunRider soft top
15-inch Alcoa aluminum wheels
30" x 9.5" Goodyear Wrangler OWL tires
Heavy duty Dana 44 rear axle
High pressure gas charged shocks
Sirius satellite radio with 1-year free service
7-speaker system including subwoofer
Body colored fender flares
Full metal doors
Fog lamps
Unique center stack bezel
Unique two-tone seat with embroidered Jeep 65 logo
Unique floormats with "Jeep 65" logo
Unique 65th anniversary decal

Unfortunately the seats in this aren't the originals which isn't a huge deal because these are surprisingly comfortable. The soft top was removed and put on the previous owners sons Jeep which isn't a big deal since I wanted a hard top anyway. Overall it's nothing to special but my wife and I are a big fan of the color and I can't wait to get time to polish and wax it.

Beautiful TJ. If you ever decide to sell the wheels, I would be first in line with my cash in hand
