I think it's actually hit and miss. I don't have the auto A/C on my 2013 Sahara, but I do have the filters. The tech at the dealership said there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to which ones get the filters. Now, mine was a demo with 1,000 miles on it when I bought and and being driven by the service manager, so it's possible he put filters in it, but seems unlikely.

By that I mean, is this the unknown Sunset Orange you saw behind a dark corner of the factory or is this a new model? If this is really Sunset Orange I think the alternative name might be Tomato Red.

I kind of like it but it is not nearly as Orange as I would like. I waited out the end of last years models hoping for another real orange. I may have to go for this red orange anyway.

That's not sunset orange. That's firecracker red.

As far as the grille, rims, dinoc, etc.. it's the same as the X's I've seen.

That makes me feel better! Hope the real Sunset is really Orange.

Thanks.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So does the manual A/C still use R134A instead of the new (more expensive/different fittings) R1234yf refrigerant? I sure hope so.

My 2015 Hard Rock, without auto AC, didn't come with the filters but they were extremely easy to add. I personally can't stand the auto function so I went with the regular version when I ordered my Jeep.

Please feel free to include any circumstances that you believe impact your results. For example whether you are logging mostly highway, or city etc. or any other influences.
Hi,see the attached screenshot for my millage this week,almost 100% city,I also use only 94 octane as I have found anything less does not stop the "pinging" which I do not like to hear,although I am sure the engine should run smooth on any octane,it does not,at least not mine!..I am sure others can comment on this.

As others have pointed out, it seems like special editions have degraded into nothing more than new combinations of the same old parts.

Have you done engine mods? Unless there are mods that would affect compression, timing, or A/F mixture, if you need to run 94 octane to avoid pinging, there's something wrong under the hood. If it's designed for 87, it should run correctly on 87.

Been distracted the last few weeks, come back to catch up and I am like what is this deja vu? Some of the very first leaked pics in the thread were of a Hydro X, then I remember they had to get all crazy with the naming and what was once an X is now something else and there is a new X.

I am going to refer to mine and all the other 14X's as an OG-X from here on out because I'm hip like that.

In seriousness AA, I read that article where Marchionne talked about the redesigned model and how the need to use more aluminum might necessitate relocating Wrangler production. Any really truth to such?

Sorry if you already understand this, just throwing this out for those that might not.

On the note of octane, its simply a measure of how well the fuel resists detonation. In other words, if you have a turbo/supercharger/high compression engine, you want the higher octane. The Pentastar is rated for 87 octane, which means that it should run perfect on 87, but the ECU can readjust the ignition timing to make it work with a higher rated octane. (I don't know much about the older engines, but they are also rated at 87 so this applies to these engines as well, for those that are curious.)

If you hear a pinging sound on 87, you either have a serious problem with your engine, or you need to let your computer readjust for the lower octane (this can take up to 100 miles depending on the model/computer, or by removing the ground cable from the battery to reset the car's memory). If it's just piston slap, it should go away after the engine readjusts to the lower octane/warms up a bit, otherwise you might want to have it checked over to make sure it's nothing more serious.

tl:dr, Don't waste your money on higher octane if you don't need it for your setup. And if it's still making a funky noise, there's something wrong with the engine and you should get it checked out now, BEFORE there is a more serious issue.
