ordered 2017 Trailhawk 3.6

Hello all, this is my first post here, new here I've had 4 Wranglers starting with a 1997 TJ Sport I took delivery of late in 96'. Then a 04 TJ Rubi, 2012 JK Rubi, and now trading my 2015 JKU Rubi Hard Rock for a new 17 Trailhawk WK2. Prior to Jeeps I had a 76 Toyota FJ40 and a 87 Suzuki Samuri.

Looking forward to learing a bunch about the WK2s and getting to know everyone.

Sorry I don't have any pics to post yet, order went in on Tuesday Aug 9th so I have 6 ish weeks till it arrives. I'll be sure to post some as soon as it arrives.

Why are you getting rid of the Rubicon for the Trailhawk?

Re: ordered 2017 Trailhawk 3.6

I don't need all the capability of the Rubicon anymore, and looking to increase comfort and efficiency. The Rubi rides well but it doesn't ride as well as the WK2.

Sounds like you are saying, "I'm getting a little older now".

Welcome to the Jeep Garage.

I am in the same boat, waiting for a WK2.

Re: ordered 2017 Trailhawk 3.6

Absolutely!!!!!! Though I do hate to admit it. The WK2 will do everything I've been doing in the Rubi, and sadly I haven't taken the top or doors off my last two Jeeps. Glad to hear I'm not the only one.

Welcome. Looking forward to photo. Don't be surprised if you get it sooner rather than later.

It appears to depend on options/model. Both my MY11 Limited and my MY15 Overland were delivered in 4 weeks. Interestingly it took the MY11 a week to travel 500 miles from the factory, meaning order through assembly took 3 weeks. Rule of thumb for domestic vehicles seems to be 6 to 8 weeks. It's smart business to "under promise and over deliver." Good luck.

Cool. Thanks for that info. I'd be stoked if it was only 4 weeks ish.

Re: ordered 2017 Trailhawk 3.6

wow, 8/26, lucky!

Mine was in production on the first week, but when I last checked with the dealer on Monday, the ship date wasn't scheduled until 8/31.

The 4x4 WK2 with proper equipment - which the Trailhawk has - is capable of probably 85-90% of what a JK can do and waaaay more comfortable
