Officially, on Sunday 9/01. But I believe most of that info is out there already.

My source tells me "Officially, on Sunday 9/01. But I believe most of that info is out there already."

You're really only going to find it on the first page of the 2014 thread. Milous has it listed under "models". That's where he posts permanent updates to ordering/models/pricing, etc...

This thread is more specific so you'll find more discussion about it here once we have more information...hopefully on Saturday

Are you planning on actually taking your vehicle off road and modifying it or are you going to take it on light trails or drive it in snow?

Besides, don't think of it as being "stuck" with your Cherry Red. That's a pretty sweet color too, just not as unique or have the awesomeness of the blood orange (Sorry Scottina, just my opinion).
I would totally wait 2 more months for orange

It will definitely go off road, but not anything like the Rubicon...unless I get the wrangler.

As far as modifications, i'd modify the jeep extensively, but leave the Trailhawk II alone for the most part.

Either vehicle will be used in snow a lot for DD because I plan to move to the Park City or Boulder area. Either will be used for long road trips so they must be comfortable on road. Towing will be under 3k lbs with an expedition type trailer eventually and a boat occasionally.

Both have their strong points and my wants seem fall in the middle....I like the fact that I can have the baddest factory off roader made which is comfortable enough to be DD, but I also like the fact I can have a super comfortable and luxurious DD which is also better than pretty much every SUV offroad.

It sounds like more snow driving and long road trips, I would go with the TH. The Rubi is extremely bouncy compared to a WK. But if you actually plan on wheeling seriously, you can't compare a IFS/IRS vehicle with doodads to a properly modified JK. Road trips in harsh weather and towing are going to be the strong points for the WK. Good luck with the choice and post some pics when you get it.

Glad to hear it. I've been watching for this update since they revealed the concept months ago.
