Dear Jambo Owners and Enthusiasts –

It is with great pleasure that we release a completely redesigned and updated version of the Jambo Registry (www.82jambo.com)!

We have improved the navigation, added a TON of information, tightened up what it means to have a confirmed Jambo, and added many Jambos.

Here are a few other highlights:

We tightened up what information we must have in order to consider a Jambo “Confirmed.” The previous site was a bit too loose in this regard. Currently, we have 133 confirmed Jambos (http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Registry.htm). Other Jambos are classified as “Likely,” “Possible,” “Mythical,” “Scrapped,” and “Fake.” If your Jambo is not listed where you would like it, we would be happy to reclassify it. Please send the required information (see the site) to jambo152@82jambo.com.

We have provided what we think is a highly accurate production estimate. You can read more about it here (http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Production.html). The bottom line is that Jeep made about 650 Jambos (570 Topaz Gold Metallic and 80 Olympic White). This makes the Jambo not only the rarest CJ-7, but one of the rarest Jeeps of all time.

We have defined the several different batches in which Jambos were made and then specified in which batch each specific Jambo on the site was made (including the date it was produced).

We have also obtained and posted the internal Jeep documents that created and defined the Jambo (http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Definition.html). These documents answer many questions and help to prove that Jambos came with black rocker molding (http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Parts_Rockers.html) and explain why many Jambos did not come with factory AC (http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Parts_AC.html).

We have added a page on the history of the Jambo (http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_History.html). This should help others understand that the Jambo has a history unlike any other CJ-5 or CJ-7.

We have many more things to add to the site, but wanted to get this out to you, after being out for too long.

In all, our goal has been to develop a more formal registry and address the many questions surrounding the Jambo. We hope you enjoy the new site and that it will help to give the Jambo the recognition it deserves.

Thanks,

Eric

The new site is extremely informative and is really fun to navigate. If you really get into jeep history, not just for the Jamboree, it is a really great.

I know first hand how much effort Eric has put into this and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

Happy reading.

I don't have a Jambo, but that site is very interesting. Thanks for the work I'm sure it took to get it together.

Dear Jambo Owners and Enthusiasts –

I am pleased to send you the October 2016 update regarding The Jambo Registry (www.82jambo.com). This update summarizes what changed over the last month and also asks for your help regarding an important piece of Jambo history.

Here is a summary of what changed:

#0070, Moved to Confirmed, http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0070.htm
#0203, Added production batch, http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0203.htm
#0306, Added as Confirmed, http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0306.htm
#0315, Moved to Scrapped, http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0315.htm
#0325, Changed location, http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0325.htm
#0496, Moved to Confirmed, http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0496.htm
#0517, Moved to Confirmed and updated owner, http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0517.htm
#0597, Moved to Confirmed, added batch, and updated pictures, http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0597.htm
#0696, Moved to Confirmed, http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0696.htm

We now have 139 Confirmed Jambos. We have 203 that are either Confirmed, Likely, or Possible.

We also added a Jambos For Sale page! http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_For_Sale.html

And, we updated the parts we have for sale/trade. These include a Jambo AM/FM/CB Radio, Jambo Seats, and a Jambo tire cover!

We need your help with the following:

We are trying to determine when production began and ended on the Jambos. To do so, we ask that you check the date on two items that may be on your Jambo: the production sticker and the factory wheels. Here is a link to a webpage that describes these. http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Production_Date.html

The production sticker inside the Jeep on the driver’s side, down on the rocker to the left of the seat (see picture on webpage). This production sticker had a date on it at one time. However, today, most of these stickers are unreadable. If you can make out the date on yours please take a picture and send it to jambo152@82jambo.com.

If you have factory wheels (see the pictures of Jambos on the site, http://www.82jambo.com/index.html) then they have a date on them (see pictures on webpage above). This date is on the inside back-half of the wheel. You can see it when looking through the front of the wheel. You may see “MADE IN CANADA”. The date is near this. Please check all of your wheels and send the date(s) to jambo152@82jambo.com.

Thanks guys!! We are really starting to get the Jambo the attention it deserves! To keep that going we need to gather and document as much information as we can about its history and production!

Jamin’ On,

Eric
