That being said, I'm not a masochist. The gay in me wanted to get the yellow top, but the graphic designer in me knew that if it was all Baja I'd need to put a lampshade on it. So in the interest of balance, I got the black top.

It's easy to keep the black fenders black but on my Flame Red Liberty I let them gray out on purpose as scarlet and gray is very well received here in Columbus Ohio and I'm an OSU alum.

One plus about the black fenders... add the right set of rock rails and you all but eliminate the chance of paint chips from parking lot door dings.

Well, that would be sweet. Problem is, I am in Alaska, and I seriously doubt someone would want to sell/trade their Willys wheels for my Rubicon wheels.

Guess I could put it out there when mine does get here...

I was curious on this also...according to the Order Guide and Jeep website TRAILER SWAY DAMPING (BNT) is standard on all models and is an integral part of ESC, regardless of whether you get a factory tow package. Since AHT Trailer Tow is not available at this time, the AHQ Max Tow package buys you the trailer hitch, 4-way trailer wiring, and 3.73 gears [unless you are already getting 4.10 gears]. I don't want to pay the extra premium for the 3.73 gears, so I'm planning to add the hitch and 4-way wire harness after delivery.

I'm going to venture and say never, but I don't want to speak for Archer.

Tank will look good any way it's ordered,
It's a fitting color for a Jeep.
I ordered my Tank HR with the same setup, hope we're both right.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/recommendations. Also, if you know of one in Central NJ? Thank you Unclebuck!

My order went into D1 on 8/19. Really bullish that it's going to get produced in the next few days! JKUR Tank to be built soon!

Not my best work. These are painted black fenders. You all know how the bright sun can make them look faded.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Pat or Milous,

Do you know if the info/specs on the new Mopar lift that will be available in Sept is expected to be part of the 2015 kick off this week? I've got my Hard Rock expected to be delivered to the dealership in the next 2 weeks and don't know if I want to hold off for this new lift or go far another option from the dealership's shop. If it is really going to be something that rivals the after market stuff for a good price it may be worth waiting for...
