Although not official because it hasnt been release yet chances are it'll be based on the Sahara model. If you go to the Jeep.com website you can still build a 2014 Altitude.

Added 2014 features.
  • Matte Black Grille with High-Gloss Black Grille Inserts and Headlamp Rings
  • High-Gloss Black Bumper Appliques
  • Body-Color Hardtop
  • High-Gloss 18-Inch Black-Painted Seven-Spoke Aluminum Wheels
  • Low-Gloss Black "Wrangler" Decal on All Body Colors and Matching Low-Gloss Black Hood Decal
You might see a new color or two but don't expect many option changes if any at all to the 2015 model.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Saw Copper Brown in person last week and it was the ugliest color I've seen on a Jeep since the early 1980s. I almost threw up in my mouth.

And just a correction...the OP lists Hydro Blue as "also called Atlantic Blue". This is incorrect. The Atlantic Blue is a totally different color. Look at a 2004 Jeep or Ram pickup in Atlantic Blue and you'll immediately see the huge difference in color.

Baja Yellow looks awesome in person...far more rich and lively than Solar Yellow.

I still think Billet Silver with body matching roof and flares is the best combo offered. Just awesome looking.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Just thought I would share a few things about my 2 door Hard Rock:
1. The new 2" MOPAR lift raised my vehicle 3.8" in the front and 2.2" in the rear (the dealer did the installation).
2. I removed the rear seat. It weighs 73 pounds.
3. I installed the AEV tire carrier. The Hard Rock bumper is ready for it (the big hole is already there) and no trimming is needed on the inside of the bumper. I did have to remove the right-rear tow hook.
4. I installed a 2" hitch receiver; it is easy.

edit (forgot to add this):
5. I installed an 8K Smittybilt XRC winch in the front bumper using the Maximus-3 winch plate.

Update:

6. Added the AEV fuel caddy to the tire carrier (10 gal).
7. Added the AEV Pull-pal and jack mount to the tire carrier.

I then went out for some fairly aggressive testing. Unfortunately, the clouds were heavy so the pictures are not as good as would like.

Looks great, regardless of the clouds!

Why did you have to remove the right rear tow hook?


Waiting for my new JKUHRR!!

The spare tire carrier uses the same mounting spot.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Does anyone know why the Connectivity Package is no longer available on the Jeep site when you build one? Is the only way to get Bluetooth with the 730n nav?

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Can y'all let me know what I need to make sure is included when I pick up my Jeep in a week or two?

2015 JKUR, Dual Top.

I've seen talk of folks having to ask the parts counter for some things that weren't in the Jeep.

Thanks, Dax

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Wheel lock tool
4 grab handles
2 coat hooks
Freedom hardtop bag
Tool kit (case, handle, and some torque bits)
Carpeted front and rear floor mats (unless you ordered the other ones)
Trunk mat (reversible--carpet on one side, rubber on the other)
There are supposed to be some straps for the soft top as well--I think mine were around the soft top at delivery (but I haven't confirmed)
