Dear Jambo Owners and Enthusiasts –

Happy New Year! I am pleased to send you the January 2017 update regarding The Jambo Registry (www.82jambo.com).

First, I am pleased to announce that we have five confirmed Jambo owners for the 2017 Jambo Jamboree:

Jambo #0152, Eric Bickel (Austin, TX)
Jambo #0180, Heath Aggen (Tyler, TX)
Jambo #0250, Phil Eichler (Whidbey Island, WA)
Jambo #0355, Daniel C'deBaca (Corrales, NM)
Jambo #0646, Joseph Para (Castro Valley, CA)

As a reminder, we have arranged a gathering of Jambo owners on the Rubicon trail!! This is a once-in-a-lifetime epic event! Imagine a lineup of 10-20 Jambos! That would be the largest gathering since they left the factory in 1982.

Please see the page for details. http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Jamboree.html Every owner that comes will receive a FREE, very good, Jambo t-shirt. Details to be released soon! PLEASE plan to join us!

Changes to The Jambo Registry:

We made several changes over the last month (http://www.82jambo.com/index.html):

- Added #0320 as Confirmed (http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0320.htm). We know have 144 confirmed Jambos. Welcome to our new owner!
- Updated pictures for #0021, #0218, #0401, #0411, and #0591
- Updated the owners of #0205 and #0346
- Noted that #0411 sold
- Listed #0231 for sale. http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_For_Sale.html

We also added pictures to our “Owners with Owners” page: http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Fun.html

We added a Jambo Fire Extinguisher page: http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Parts_FireExt.html

We need your help with the following:
As I mentioned last month, we are trying to determine when production began and ended on the Jambos. Several owners have helped with this, but we still need more information. If you have not already done so, please 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

Parts:
We try to collect Jambo parts and make them available to Jambo owners. This includes Jambo CBs, seats, seat covers, tire covers, and the correct rocker molding. Please check our parts for sale page often, as it changes frequently. http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Parts_Sale.html

Thanks guys!! And, I hope you will join us on the Rubicon in July 2017!

Jamin’ On,

I've got a working Ramsey winch with the correct CJ mount and tow hooks, that I need to trade.

Also have a uber rare 27x39" poster showing a Topaz CJ-7 with list of options.

And a NOS black rocker guard.

JA can't make up his mind if he wants :rotfl:

Does JA need to trade or is there a price we can know for these three items ? I am interested in the poster. I am pretty I sure I know the one you speak of. It has the dealer handout double sided press photo but in a larger version?

JA usually gets my stuff, he just needs prodding to make up his mind.


Bickel,

I looked at your NOS Ramsey CJ kit and it's the 76-80 style.

So AFAIK the Jambo brush guard won't fit.

Dear Jambo Owners and Enthusiasts –

I am pleased to send you the April 2017 update of The Jambo Registry (www.82jambo.com).

A lot was happening at The Jambo Registry in April. We added two more Confirmed Jambos and made many site updates. In addition, we posted pictures of Jambo #0152’s restoration. And, we have important information regarding paint. We summarize all of this below.

Marchal Fog Light Covers:
We wanted to let you know that CandlePower, which owns the Marchal trademark, has brought the Marchal 850/859 fog light (stone) covers back into production! They are for sale on eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Product...ash=item1ec3fc9dc5:g:nyUAAOSwax5Y0op6&vxp=mtr) for $99 per set of two. That is one-third the price I paid for my NOS covers.  The pictures I have posted of #0152 shows these new covers on my Jambo (http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0152.htm). I understand from CandlePower that the supply of covers is very limited and they will not be produced again. Better grab a couple of sets. Use these for driving around and save or originals in a safe place.

Confirmed Jambos:
Here are the new Confirmed Jambos

#0104 http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0104.htm
#0149 http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0149.htm

We now have 153 confirmed Jambos. Welcome to our new owners!

Important Information Regarding Paint Color
If you are planning to restore your Jambo, you need to read our detailed study about matching Topaz Gold Metallic paint (http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Parts_Paint.html). You cannot just walk into the paint store and order AMC/Jeep 2H. The manufacturer matters! Most off-the-shelf 2H formulas are much too gold. The formulas have drifted over 35 years. We have studied this in detail and have named BASF Limco 2H as the official Topaz Gold Metallic repaint color of The Jambo Registry.

We are also building a restoration page: http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Restoration.html

Jambo #0152 Restoration:
After much work and way too much $, we are pleased to post updated pictures regarding #0152 (http://www.82jambo.com/jambo0152.htm). This shows our nearly complete restoration project! It also shows the BASF Limco 2H paint in action and compares it to an NOS tire cover. As you will see, the NOS tire cover looks very different than the old faded tire covers that some of us have.

The Jambo Jamboree:
As a reminder, we have arranged a gathering of Jambo owners on the Rubicon trail!! This is a once-in-a-lifetime epic event! Imagine a lineup of 10-20 Jambos! That would be the largest gathering since they left the factory in 1982. Please see this page for details: http://www.82jambo.com/82_Jambo_Jamboree.html

We have five confirmed Jambo owners for the 2017 Jambo Jamboree:

Jambo #0152, Eric Bickel (Austin, TX)
Jambo #0180, Heath Aggen (Tyler, TX)
Jambo #0250, Phil Eichler (Whidbey Island, WA)
Jambo #0355, Daniel C'deBaca (Corrales, NM)
Jambo #0646, Joseph Para (Castro Valley, CA)

We also have a few owners that are likely to come. It is getting close! Please try to arrange your plans to join us!

Thanks guys!! And, I hope you will join us on the Rubicon in July 2017!
