Welcome anyway! I know some guys bash the Islander, but I love it. My first YJ was a '90 Islander so it holds a special place for me! And I'm a huge fan of the Carribean & the island lifestyle as described by world renowned poet Jimmy Buffet... So I get a big kick out of the Tiki everywhere!

Welcome again to jkO. Congrats on your new Jeep and on your 2nd post. No worries mate. Color is unique much like us orange Jk's. Did you know that approximately 9-11 percent of the male population is color blind.

Póg mo thóin!

I know I am going to get ripped about the Islander.. I just finished reading all the comments in another section of the forum.. but thats fine... It is not for them..

It was the same on my first trail run with the JK.. all the CJ YJ TJ jeeps were like great a JK we will be pulling him out of the mud all day.... but to everyone surprise I was doing all the towing never got stuck..lol

Its fine they can laugh at the Tiki til they have to ask for it to tow them out.
