As far as I know, yes. I have used it for decades on all kinds of different surfaces and never had an issue.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Are there any differences between a 2015 and a 2013/14 that would prevent the 15 from using rock rails designed for a 13/14? Thanks,

Nothing beyond manufacturing variations of your Wrangler and/or the rails. Smittybilt sliders, for instance, are known for requiring "alterations" to fit.

That's fine, I can deal with minor alterations. I probably should have asked before I bought them... for a Jeep I haven't officially ordered yet...

Oh well, I'm committed now! I've got a $500 deposit down and parts already shipping for a Jeep that I hope can be ordered on Sept 8th.

Good to know the rails I bought will work though. Really just getting them because my girlfriend is only 5' 2ish" and the step will make it easier for her.

Thanks ichthus!

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So can someone explain this allocation ordering? I intend on ordering a new JK on September 8th when Copper Brown Pearl coat becomes available. Do I have to get to the dealer asap on that day? Is it first come, first served? I'm just curious what happens if I miss the allocation what would happen.

Thanks!

No judgment from me...I had rails in the garage before I'd even decided to order my 2014 :-) Managed a screaming good deal on a set of Body Armor sliders. Figured if I didn't use them by buying a JKU, I'd trade them for parts that would work on my 08 JK....

Thanks!

I'll give it a try from what I've gleaned so far... others may feel free to correct me.

The way I understand it, each month the dealers are given a specific number of allotments for vehicles. They can either use them for specific customer orders or for dealer stock vehicles to sell off their lot. I have no idea how many total they get, but I bet there's a formula based on their market and sales history. I don't know how likely this is, but if you go in to place an order and the dealer has already used up their allocation for the month, you'll have to wait for the next months allocation. So sorta first come first serve. However, I suppose a dealer could use up his full allocation right away for dealer stock on the first day his new allocation is released and not take any individual orders.

I would recommend trying to make a deal up front before the allocation release of the month you wish to order.

My personal situation is that I tried to order a Sunset Orange JK in early July only to find out it wasn't available yet. Turned out to be a good thing because I started researching and found Jeep Garage and armed myself with Pat and Milous' knowledge. I also found out I couldn't order Sunset Orange until Sept 8th. So I spent August haggling with dealers and getting my deal set up. Right away I found out most dealers are clueless about their own processes and wouldn't quote on a vehicle that wasn't available on their computer. Look for a dealer more remote used to dealing with farmers... Farmers special order vehicles (cause they know what they want/need and don't want to pay for a lot of other crap) and those dealers are used to hard minded frugal farmers. Anyway, I picked my dealer on a combination of price, responsiveness and his knowledge of the system. It's worth paying a fair price to work with a dealer that makes the process smoother. So my dealer made the deal and took my deposit three weeks before it can actually be ordered. Now I'm doing my best not to go crazy waiting for Sept 8th.

So in short, I'd say get moving now on your deal/order so it can drop in on Sept 8. Maybe our Jeeps will be line buddies!

Hi Pat or Milous: Is the AHT Trailer Tow on temporary restriction or discontinued? I was planning to order my JKU Sport Sunset Orange with AHT on 9/8. Will I have to get AHQ Max Tow in order to get a hitch.

Thanks in advance

If you're handy you can get a hitch and wire harness from Amazon for $60...

As of right now, yes you will have to order AHQ to get a hitch. I'm hearing AHT will be closed for the remainder of the model year.

Thanks I may have to do something like that...I didn't want to pay extra for 3.73 gears since I plan to do a lift with 37's and re-gear to 4.88's.

Thanks
