re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I'm hoping to pick up my JKU Sahara in Tank this weekend and I'm thinking of seeing if I can get a set of the black Altitude wheels to swap on there for the stock Sahara ones. I think this would give it a nice contrast, any thoughts?

Maybe I can get my dealer to take a set off the Amp'd altitude that's been sitting there for a long time!

I called on Friday about my base Sport, Tank, which I ordered on 8/16, and it is still in D1 and they do not have an expected delivery date yet... Ugh..

I'm not saying you shouldn't bother asking, but I doubt that they will do that. The wheels are part of the Altitude package, so all the sudden the window sticker on that Jeep isn't accurate.

You may want to look at simply painting the wheels that come with your Sahara. It's not very difficult, you just have to put in the prep work, taping and sanding. The painting is the easy part. Plenty of DIY write-ups on various car forums.

Good luck!

Pat, I'm nervous... Any idea why Sunset Orange isn't in the current (09-05-14) Order Guide? I'm currently waiting to hear from my dealer who is supposed to drop my order in today. I know it's not scheduled to start production until 09-29-14 but I'll feel a lot better once I have a VON in hand.

I believe the order guide gets updated when new colors get released. So since orange isn't available until 9/8 it wouldn't be on 9/5 order guide. Pat already said orange is available to order today.

IMHO, Wranglers need to have at least one "military" color, or what some people would call an earthtone color. For 2015, Jeep achieves that with Tank.

Along with that, Wranglers need to have at least one "rescue" color. For 2015, Jeep achieves that with both Baja and Sunset.

And there are the basics, white, black, silver, and red. Those are there too.

The rest are hit-or-miss, take-it-or-leave-it, bonus colors.

Except that Copper Brown is also released today and IS in the 09-05-14 Order Guide... hence why I'm nervous about getting my Sunset Orange order in today.

Ohhhh I didn't realize that. Hmmm. Well try not to get nervous about things that you have no control over :-)

I approve of the non-Baja top on the Baja Sahara.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I placed my order in on Friday the 5th of September. Can I use my VON to look up the status on VOTS? Or is it only when the VIN gets generated.

How long past ordering can I expect to get an email from Jeep?
