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.

Check out our new Jambo artwork! We have prints, mugs, and t-shirts. To visit our store click here!

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 The Jambo Registry has the VIN for this Jambo in our database. An X means that the VIN for this Jambo is not registered with The Jambo Registry. 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 G and M stand for the Gold or Mixed groups, respectively. The Gold group consists of the initial run of about 412 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 63% Topaz Gold and 37% Olympic White Jambos (9B).

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

We also note the engine and tranmission that each Jambo came with. If we know either the engine or tranmission has been changed, we make a note. All Jambos came with the the 258 straight-six. Most also had the BorgWarner T-5 transmission, a few (about 20) were ordered with the Chrysler TorqueFlite A999.

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 (156 Confirmed, 179 Confirmed + Likely)

We begin with a total count of the number of Jambos. We break these down into Confirmed, Likely, Possible, Mythical, and Scrapped 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 136 20 0 156
Likely 25 0 0 23
Possible 31 4 27 62
Mythical 3 1 15 18
Scrapped 10 1 3 14
Total 200 26 45 273

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 90% of the Jambos that still exist. This analysis is detailed on the Jambo Production page.

Confirmed Jambos (156, 12 are lost)

The Jambos listed below have been deemed "Confirmed" by The Jambo Registry. This judgment is made based on pictures of the exterior/interior, the VIN number, the paint and trim codes if available, and owner statements. Some of these Confirmed Jambos are now "lost." This means we have been unable to contact the owner since at least 2010. In this case, we list the last known owner and location, but add flag to denote their status. It is possible that many of the Jambos we flag as lost either no longer exist or have been repainted such that they no longer appear to be Jambos. The "Prod. #" is the estimated serial production number in the Jambo run. For example, Jambo #0002 is estimated to have been the 441st Jambo produced, out of 630. This would have been the Jambo number if the Jambos had actually been numbered in serial order, which they were not. Do not buy any Jambo whose VIN has not be registered with the Jambo Registry.

= The numbering is very unusual (very far out of sequence) and The Jambo Registry cannot explain the numbering of this Jambo. It could have been specially ordered or the badge could have been replaced prior to it being listed in the Registry.
-x = Jambo was parted out and was rebuilt (or is being rebuilt) using VIN tags and badge.

Likely Jambos (23, 19 are lost)

The Jambos listed below have been deemed "Likely" by 82jambo.com. We believe these Jeeps are Jambos, but we are lacking critical information, such as a picture of the badge or the VIN, needed to confirm them. In some cases, we have not had any updates on these Jambos in several years. Jambo Bug

Possible Jambos (62, 52 are lost)

The Jambos listed below have been deemed "Possible" by The Jambo Registry. In some cases, these Jambos have been mentioned online or reported to the site, but we don't have enough information to confirm that they still exist or are actually Jambos. In other cases, the Jambos were listed on the site many years ago, but we are no longer able to obtain any information about their status. We believe a signifficant fraction of these Jambos no longer exist and therefore do not include them in our official counts.

Scrapped Jambos (14)

We are sorry to report that the Jambos listed below have been parted out or recycled. They have either been found in salvage yards or reported to The Jambo Registry as totaled. The listed owner either holds the Jambo badge or was the last known owner. The location is last known location of Jambo.

Do not try to fake or rebadge a Jambo. The Jambo will not be registered unless you go though The Jambo Registry. Fakes are easily spotted using our VIN database.

Please contact us if you are a registered Jambo owner and need a badge. We have a set of never-installed Jambo badges that we can use to reissue you a Jambo badge number. This is as close as you will ever get to having a factory-issued badge. If you have another badge you were thinking of using, we will consider that as trade-in. There is no reason to use scrapped or NOS badges from another source.

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.
