CJ-7 Limited question, because I have to win Facebook

Thanks for the replies but I am still where I was before. It clearly shows 9E but it does not show up in the color chart. What color is 9E?
I have tried to upload pictures of the trim tag but it is only allowing me to upload from a url rather than my desktop. Am I losing it or have I uploaded directly from my desktop before? And what color is 9E!

9E is Wedgewood Blue, which is a one year only color for 1979. Sounds like your 7's tub was swapped at some point. Would have been a nice blue on blue CJ, probably a Renegade with blue denim seats.

I still cant upload pics from my desktop. I saw that 9E was offered in 1979 and I was worried that my tub was swapped. However, the vin number on the trim tag matches the vin number from the windshield frame. And the vin number is from a 1983 model. Did Jeep offer colors that are not on the standard cj list? It may not be a limited but I still do not know what it is.

As a basic user you will need to host the pics on a picture hosting site then copy and paste the link here. Or you could become a paid member and just upload pics to this site. :thumbsup:

Trim tag and VIN tag could have been swapped when the tub was swapped. Do they match the title VIN and does the title state it is a 1983?

And does the VIN on the trim tag/window frame match the VIN numbers on the frame?

Polarfire and Mr. Boh.
Thanks for the replies. The windshield VIN and the Trim tag VIN both match. I will check the frame tonight. Should be easy because the body is off right now. It is possible the tub was switched. My title says it is a 1983 but the 9E color was not offered. The main reason I am asking is because I am blasting the body to fix all the rust and paint it back to its original color. I am going to have to use the 9E color but I just don't know what it is. If it is wedgewood blue then the 1983 Jeep is going to get a 1979 color. I wonder if you could special order colors back then?
