Sweet... so mine will be even more like my old CJ's. And no nesting material for chipmunks. (Yes, I've had issues with chipmunks.)

That way it keeps a log of your MPGs and throws reminders if one of your interval items comes due (oil change, tire rotation, etc.)

I'm on iPhone and the app is called Auto Care. Pretty good. You can manually set intervals on the maint if the recommended interval doesn't suit your application and it gives you breakdowns of avg mpg, cost per mile and avg annual maint cost based on the info you put in. I've been using for about 4-5 months and have no complaints. I use it to keep track of oil changes and tire rotations as I was a bit bad with that.

Edit: just noticed there is more than one app with that name. The one I use has a red background and a white car for the app icon. There is a free version for checking out and a paid version I think it was about 3.99. I'm sure others may have recommendations too.

Thanks, I was going to post that. We must have figured that out about the same time. All the Tank colored Wranglers I found close by said "In Transit". So I guess it will be a while longer before one gets here.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I know we're still in the dark, possibly for another month or so.. But does anyone have any inclination as to whether or not Sahara X will be available in Copper Brown?

If not, I'd like to order a regular Sahara.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

New guy here. First post. Had a TJ Sahara with 5 spd manual 10 years ago and still miss it. Lousy in Los Angeles Fwy traffic though. Now I live in Arizona (retired) and have decided that I gotta have another Wrangler. When I had the Sahara I lusted for a Rubi. I camp and hunt a lot in AZ and a Rubi would be great. Thinking seriously about going all the way to a RHR but there seem to be none around here at this time. May have to order. 2 door 6 spd dual top is on my mind. Dealer I went to here was not very knowledgeable or helpful but I guess there is nothing new in that. Can I get a soft top Rubi/Rubi HR and add the Freedom top later? Is there a downside to that?

Hey Tonopah. I'm also in AZ. I ordered my Unlimited HR because no one in the country had a six speed, no nav and the options I wanted. I ordered about the time 2015 ordering started and had to wait, but after about six weeks, I can say that I'm very happy with what I got. Considered ordering out of LA but got best price in Phoenix from Earnhardt. Sorry I can't tell you much about the top question, but from looking at catalogs I think you will pay more if you wait. I'm sure someone knowledgeable can help on the tops question. Good luck.

Jim Click Chrysler Jeep in Tucson has a 2-dr Hard Rock (5-spd auto) if you can't find one in Phoenix to look at. About the top, I don't remember the details, but if you don't order the hard top you will be missing stuff. Maybe brake light wiring?

Ordering hard top later will leave you without rear defrost, wiper, washer fluid piping as well as controls to operate that equipment. To order and ship a aftermarket hardtop will be more expensive than shipping a softtop. I choose a factory hardtop with the expectation to purchase a softop for summer.

Just order one with the dual top option that way you get the hard top AND the premium soft top.
