re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I keep seeing "Red Radar Stitching Accents" on all Window Stickers for Rubicon's with the Hard Rock Package only on VIN# FL53XXXX and up. Can anyone confirm whether they actually come with red stitching on the black leather seats on their 2015 HR with a VIN# FL53XXXX and up? Can Pat confirm this? Thanks

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I have searched the net over looking for an interior picture of a HR with a VIN#53XXXX and up, and I cannot find one yet, it seems they have not hit the lots yet. Pat has one due into his lot with a VIN# 53XXXX, not sure if it has made it in yet? Its window sticker list "Radar Red Stitching Accents". If this is a typo, it has just started with VIN# 53XXXX and up and would be a big typo.

Trailer Tow Group on 2 door Sport(some early builds might show 3.73 is included but it's wrong)

On B pkg, S pkg, AHT Trailer Tow only includes hitch and wiring. DME 3.73 axle is stand alone option.

On K and W package Willys, 3.73 is standard

Trailer Tow Group on 4 door Sport

AHT- Trailer/Tow hitch and wiring only
Must select Max Tow package AHQ

Keep in mind on Willys, both 2 and 4 door 3.73 is standard so you only need trailer tow package.
Pat,

Thanks for the response. I have one follow-up question. It looks like the AHT-tow package option on the 2 door Sahara does include 3.73 for $295. I found what appears to be a section from the 2015 brochure that suggests that this applies to the Sahara only. Can you please confirm that or let me know if it is an early build error.

This issue was driving me crazy. I have a printout for a 2015 order for a 2 door Sahara. It shows AHT at $295 and DME 3.73 at $495. However, when you add up the options, it comes up at $495 less than the sum of the options. It appears that the computer allowed the quote (with the extraneous DME option checked) but ignored the "duplicate" 3.73 option and associated charge. Also, when I price at USAA, I get the same price as the printout (presumably the correct price) by adding only AHT. When I do that, the 3.73 box fades to grey, gets automatically checked, and changes from $495 to "included".


Thanks in advance for your help.

According to our code guides, AHT -trailer tow does not include 3.73 on Saharas. We do have updated code guides that hit on 08/19, so I am guessing the window stickers are wrong. It's a glitch in the ordering system, you have to select the 3.73 first then the trailer tow.

To "roll your own", there are way too many choices to list here. Personally, I had my dealer flash (enable) the Parkview Backup Camera option on my head unit (code XAC), designed/built my own bracket, and used a Kenwood camera.
Hi WaltA, if you don't mind, could you share some pics of your camera build?

I'm thinking of either this route or the dealer flash combined with the basic AEV camera without the pricey flash module thing. I like the downward facing camera - seems much more useful than the low mount ones.

Never knew I was so spoiled with the backup camera on my other SUV until I looked back at the tire and hard top wiper motor on the Jeep.

Your absolutely right. Just like all Jeeps since WWII aren't real Jeeps either... ;-)

Thanks Pat!

That was the kind of information I was looking for. I needed somebody "in the know" to answer that question as it is clearly an odd issue. It seems like Jeep has a few of those oddball issues each year. If you understand the game, sometimes it works to your advantage when buying/ordering.

I hope turn-around is fair play here. So, here is a link to my post about such, on that "other" site.

The guide that was initially made available, bearing a 6/6 reissue date, indicates in two apparently consistent places that, for the 2d Sahara, DME (the 3.73) is included with AHT (pg 6 and pg 11).

Sounds like any prospective Sahara orderers might want to check that they've got a new copy of the guide. Any already-ordered-Sahara-orderers might want to verify what's really going into their ride.
