So, what's the reasoning for this? Just curious. Is it just trying to limit the number of colors? Or deciding which colors will be limited production?

Talking re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Thanks to everyone here for the great information and insight. Yo'all helped me make what I think is the perfect stock choices on my new (just ordered today) 2015 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock, in Hydro Blue Pearl... Now, any idea how to keep from going crazy during the 8 week waiting period??? In the last 30 years, every vehicle I bought was a one day event. From starting to shop, through to driving new vehicle home, was a one day event... Think I need to rent a jeep for 8 weeks!

BrianBRL, if you find one let me know. I have been reading forum after forum making shopping lists and trying to not buy too much before it arrives.

Hey Pat/Milious, would one of you guys mind adding all the 2015 color swatches and renderings to the first post? They are tough to find in this 67-page long thread.

2. Can someone explain the connectivity group to me? I'm ordering a Rubicon Unlimited with the base stereo. I'm debating if the connectivity group is worth it to me or not.


  • I don't think I'd ever use voice commands.
  • Knowing the exact psi of each tire doesn't seem worth $500 to me since I have to manually set the pressure every time I go offroading anyway.
  • I almost never talk on the phone in the car.
  • I'd rather use a 1/8" cable to play music off my phone than bluetooth since the audio quality is better.



Is there anything else the Connectivity Group adds that I'm missing? USB interface? Do you think I should just get it to help with resale value in the future?

The difference between 1/8" and Bluetooth is pretty minimal unless the system you're playing it through is really good. Even then, if your system is that good, use USB instead - the audio quality is much better. If you're an audiophile, you may want connectivity just to get that.

Use GPS at all? Bluetooth is really nice for using GPS.

Ever want to change the music playing through whatever cable you're connected with (or in the case of Bluetooth, not)? Too dangerous to try to do that with the device itself; instead, use the convenience of either voice commands (yeah, I wouldn't do that either) or the steering wheel controls to change up the music. Pretty good stuff.

When I eventually order my JKU, it will absolutely have connectivity - though it may be standard by then like a CD player was several years ago </sarcasm>. YMMV.

Is this the badge our new 2015's will be sporting?

That's what I get for giving up on it and ordering another color... crap.

Nice! Honestly though, I hope it doesn't say "Hard Rock" anywhere on it! I do like the red-outline "Rubicon" but more decals than that, not my thing. I guess we'll all find out in another month or so.

Question re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Hey guys,

Brand new to the forum, but some awesome information on here that I have read so far.

I have a quick question. I recently ordered a 2015 Rubicon on 7/4. I received a VON from the dealer. I called IAMJEEP today, but they don't have the order in the system yet. I'm wondering if I am still waiting on my dealer to get allocation for my Jeep.

Can anyone confirm whether having a VON from your dealer means that the dealer did indeed have an allocation for the Jeep and it has been ordered?

I got curious so I tried calling as well... FYI 888-IAMJeep is NOT a Mopar number...

yep. from what I've heard, you have to make sure you use 877. 888 is for a different type of entertainment....
