Welcome to the Jambo RegistryTM. Here you will find information on all known Jambos. Some of these Jambos have been restored, some are in very good original condition, some are in rough shape, some are no longer with us.

All information provided here is based on information provided by the owners or is available on public websites. Click on the underlined numbers or words for more detail or pictures.

Below you will find a field for the VIN number. A √ means that 82jambo.com has the VIN for this Jambo in our database. An X means that the VIN for this Jambo is not registered with 82jambo.com. Do not buy any Jambo whose VIN has not be registered with the Jambo Registry. It is possible to fake Jambos by putting a Jambo badge on a stock CJ-7.

We further detail the color and the batch in which the Jambo was produced, if known. The letters T and M stand for the Topaz or Mixed groups, respectively. The Topaz group consists of the initial run of about 425 Jambos, all of which were Topaz Gold Metallic (2H) and conformed to the Jambo specifications as laid out by Jeep when the Jambo was created. The Mixed group consists of about 60% Topaz Gold and 40% Olympic White Jambos (9B). In addition, the Mixed group seems to have included options such as air conditioning.

Within each group, the Jambos were produced in batches. There were three T batches and six M batches. T-1 denotes the first batch in the T group, T-2 the second batch, and so on. For more detail regarding Jambo production click here.

To register your Jambo, please send an email to jambo152@82jambo.com. Please include pictures of the Jambo (exterior and interior), a picture of the dash plaque, and a picture of the VIN tag (on the firewall). We will compare this tag to our VIN database of known Jambos.

Total Count (143 Confirmed, 159 Confirmed + Likely)

We begin with a total count of the number of Jambos. We break these down into Confirmed, Likely, Possible, Mythical, and Deceased Jambos. Further detail is provided after this section.

We further break the count down by color: 2H = Topaz Gold Metallic, 9B = Olympic White, or unknown (we do not have any pictures to verify color).

  Color  
  Topaz Gold Metallic (2H) Olympic White (9B) Unknown Total
Confirmed 128 15 0 143
Likely 13 4 0 17
Possible 10 1 34 45
Mythical 2 2 9 13
Scrapped 11 1 2 14
Total 163 23 46 231

Below, we summarize our current estimate for the number of Jambos produced, by color, and the number yet to find. In doing so, we have allocated the Jambos of unknown color based on the proportion of production. We estimate that the Jambo RegistryTM contains about 80% of the Jambos that still exist. This analysis is detailed on the Jambo Production page.

Fake Jambos (3)

We know of at least two fake Jambos and one possible fake. One fake Jambo was a CJ-5 and another was a CJ-8. Thankfully, the fakers are not as smart as Jambo owners! The database built up by 82jambo.com over the last decade has made it very hard to fake a Jambo. Don't try. It will be posted online.
# Badge # Notes
1 0098 This Jeep was for sale. The owner claimed it was a '79 CJ-5, but it had a #0098 dash plaque. The tub is definitely a CJ-5 as  you can see from the doors. (3/3/09)
2 1083 This dash plaque was found on a Scrambler. This was discussed on www.cj-8.com. We were never able to obtain pictures. We don't know of any Jambos over #0751, but it is possible some leftover badges made their way out of the Toledo factory. (3/15/09)
3 [xxx6] This CJ-7 was for sale on 2040 Cars, where it was claimed to be a Jambo. It has been repainted a non-original color and there is nothing to suggest it is/was a true Jambo.
[] = Jambo badge number is not available (e.g., we don't have a picture of it and it was not mentioned in email or posting). If a 5-digit number is listed this is last five digits of VIN. If xxx# is listed, the VIN is not available either.
