Agreed! It was hard to NOT choose Tank.. Not enough reference pics at the time. If I did get one of those bad boys in Tank, the hooks would have to be powder coated to match..

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Here's an interesting dilemma. After my Jeep was built, it went into the Inspection stage for several days. Showed up at the dealer yesterday and the locking mechanism on the drivers side door was broke and needs to be replaced. Wondering what they were doing during the inspection phase to miss that? Kind of hard to believe it got jacked up during shipment?

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I found this picture of a 1944 Willy's MB which is supposedly all original "found in crate" condition per Hemmings Motor News, and overlayed the picture of the Tank Rubicon. Considering both pictures were taken on a clear sunny day, I think Tank is almost a perfect match! The article said that the estimated auction price for the Willy's was between 20-30K dollars, so I'm hoping mine will be worth that much after 70 years.

This sucks for those that haven't placed their orders yet. For me, it looks like I would have had to pay $350 more for my Jeep had I not ordered it a few weeks ago. This isn't going to sit well with those who don't want the premium alpine system. I personally am stocked about the new upgraded factory sound, but even I thought $695 was pushing it. Now $795.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Have a question for the group. And sorry if it's been posted before, but I couldn't find my answer.

How long is the process from day 1 on the assembly line, to the jeep being completed, loaded for transport. Given a normal build with no kind of holdup.

Thanks!!

Well played. A very good match, in pictures anyway.

I think it will look awesome with the black fenders and black hard top. Can't wait to get mine!

That picture looks lighter than it did to me in person.

You said you saw it at 6pm and this picture was taken at 12:00pm. I would suspect it would look lighter.

Very true. I'll be curious to see what you think. I know you'll love it but I hope you let me know what you think of the color when you finally see it.
