The entire kit is from Warn, if that helps.

Former TJ driver (97, 04). Ready to get out of my mini cooper S and into a 15 JK. I'm holding out for the green option too. So relieved to hear there will be one, and hoping it's a great shade.

Funny... I just traded my '04 R53 (MCS) for a 2015 Rubi Hardrock (ordered in Firecracker Red). Ironic that back in 2004 I traded my 2001 TJ for the R53. The cycle has been completed!

Unsuccessful finding it online.

The tow strap is Warn's premium strap. It's 3 inch wide and 30 feet long. I haven't read the specs on it as I just unpacked it last night but the Warn website says it's rated at 21,600 lbs.

The entire kit is made by Warn but has a Jeep logo on the carry bag.

As mentioned before. You'll probably have to ask for it, and it helps to have your build sheet with you as it's not listed on the window sticker but is called out as a dealer installed option on the build sheet. Without my build sheet from this site I probably would not have gotten one!!

Sounds great though I'm holding on to my '05 Mini Cooper S R53 and like it as much as when it was new. Yesterday after 10 days of Rubi HR ownership I got to spend a glorious morning in 4 wheel high & low on a beautiful Arizona trail. This forum thread is so excellent about learning about how to order, monitoring the process and getting a new ride. However, when all is said it done, though I enjoyed the Rubi on a quick road trip to LA and even runs into the valley (Phoenix), this wonderful machine is in all its glory off-road. Thanks again for everyone's contributions. Tread lightly!

It may just depend on your dealer. No paper presented in my case. I just walked into the parts department and said I hadn't gotten it. They went in the back and got the box and just wrote my name down on a list. Took about 30 seconds.

Unfortunately build & price is still 2014...

Reversible cargo mat! I did not know that. I am at 650 miles. That's a pleasant surprise. Is this new for 2015?

Has anyone installed the K & N Air Filter Charger?

I'm curious to see what others have experienced.

I have a K&N on my current F150 that I'm trading for my JK. I'm looking at going with a Banks air intake for my JK. On my F150 it can get very loud but I think its just the 5.4 in the Ford. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007C7EJVK/...productDetails

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

When my Rubi shows I was going to ask the sales guy to toss in an unclaimed tow kit from parts dept. before I sign the papers.

As for colors, I was wanting to see the new brown, but glad I didn't wait for it. A friend of mine said "most Jeep colors always seem one shade off" and I think he has a point. I was down to anvil or tank, and the fam was unanimous on tank. Glad that's what I got. Still love the 10Ann anvil/red seats combo though.

Aha, well that's good to know. Also, the manual shows the ability to control ESC. Where is this button? I have JKUS with the EVIC. Manual trans.
