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.

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

Actually for the two door the tow package and 3.73 gears are seperate options. The Max Tow package is only available on the four door and that includes the 3.73 gears.

That was how I was afraid I was reading it. I really want the 3.73s and don't want to mis-order.

At least I may be in the clear regarding Connectivity.

Thanks...

Consider the Willys Wheeler. Gives you 3.73, limited slip, connectivity, awesome wheels and lots of other stuff. I got one and love it. It's a lot better deal than most people give it credit for.

Yeah, I gave it a pretty good look - I agree that the WW offers a lot. My brother thinks he needs a Rubi, but he really needs a WW.

I want about 90% of that package, but it's several hundred more than just ordering to spec. I'm not a fan of the black grill, except on light colors...just preferences like that. The wheels really are excellent, for sure.

I do appreciate the suggestion, thanks.

Can anybody give me a heads up on this?, I plan to begin emailing dealers tomorrow and just want to make sure they can take my order, even if they can't place it till the 8th..

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

You can place an order and your dealer should give you your VON before you leave. It should be scheduled for production the week after 08/08.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Pat- are y'all talking about after the 8th just because the allocation of those is taken for this month and the dealers have to wait until next month's allocation to order any more?

Pat,
What colors will be available for the HRR on the 8th?
Any word on when Sunset Orange will be available for the HRR?
Thanks

I'm in VA so if my estimated ship date and time are correct with no delays, mine should be here by August 19th!

So it actually takes it longer to ship to AL than CA from OH? Interesting...
