Thoughts?:

The final entry for the Wrangler is the Wrangler Maximum performance. The vehicle will be painted mopar blue and will come with features like push button electric locking, 4.88 gearing, 4:1 Rock-trac transfer case and Dana 60 axles in the front and rear. The vehicle will also be given a four inch lift kit with a 37 inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires.

Dana 60's from the factory... very interesting.

Ha, 1 week!

Sorry, not gonna happen.

It took 30 days for my Jeep to get from Toledo to Southern California.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Milous, Pat, Archer, et al, thanks so much for ALL the helpful information.

I could use a little clarification on a couple of points before ordering, please.

I'll be getting a 2-door sport S and know that I want the 3.73. Does the trailer tow group (AHS) include it? From my reading of the code guide spec sheet, it looks like it's not included, and I have to pay separately for the axle? Hoping I'm wrong, suspecting I'm not.

Second, IIRC, for the 14s, Connectivity Group (AAJ) included an enhanced EVIC. Is that still the case for 15? (My real question is, Does the plain-vanilla EVIC display individual tire pressures, or do I need the enhanced version to see that data? If I can skip the Conn Group, I'd like to.)

Any insider opinions regarding whether Tank is truly amazeballs would be really helpful...I'm down to that or Hydro. Maybe I'll just stare at the mockup from a few weeks back for a while, and then flip a coin.

Those were Easter Jeep Safari concept vehicles. Compared to some years, these were really quite tame. Almost all mods were either production Mopar catalogue parts or concept Mopar parts. Dealer installs, not factory options

The past couple years, 3.73's were part of the Max Tow package; the one aspect that made it a worthwhile investment, IMO.

Standard EVIC does display individual tire pressure, MPG, outside temp, etc. The Connectivity package gives you the Bluetooth connection, a USB plug in the center console, most notably. The upgrades to the EVIC were coolant temp and oil pressure, or something like that. Sounded handy when I ordered last year, but it's not that easy to get to the info, and even when on the trails I haven't bothered looking at it.

It's unfortunate that Connectivity requires purchase of the Satellite radio, cuz that's definitely one feature I've never used. One other downfall to Connectivity is that if your iPhone is paired to the Jeep, you can't use Siri or voice recognition in apps

I called Jeep this morning, was told that my Wrangler should be built the 1st week of August and shipped on August 11. What is shipping time from Jeep Factory to Houston, Tx?

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Milous said that Rubicon Hard Rocks were on delay until August 8th...I think, would I still be able to negotiate with a dealer and place my order before that, or must I wait until ordering reopens?

Clearly the 2015s are faster than previous JKs.

to see if there is any updates?


Thanks

All vehicles are checked multiple times per day. Yours already has an estimated ship date, the next update will be when it's built, which should be fairly soon.
