re: 2015 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

I live in an area with hills and the most common problem I have with it is I can't back my trailer around without going into low range. This isn't a perception problem it is a flaw in transmission/engine combo. With this engine first and reverse need to be a lot lower. I can't back my 5x8 trailer with ATV in my shed without using low range. My old rubicon could do this with out even thinking about what you are doing. I can tell you with my new rubicon I either kill it or smoke the clutch. I am calling Jeep tomorrow, I will let everyone know what is going on. I won't lie to you out on the road this engine gets with it, as long as you can get the engine spinning!

I have the six speed Pentastar in a 2015 JK Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock. I can't believe that you'd want first gear lower. It is fine. I do agree that reverse could be a bit lower, but I haven't tried it with a trailer yet. I've done more than a bit of off road in desert and mountain with no problems in regular 4x4 and low-range. I've driven manual 4x4s since the early 70s and I really like this transmission. So, I'd just say, try one and decide if it is for you or not.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

I'm planning to order a '15 hardrock on Saturday. I'm just torn on the color. Leaning towards White, but considering SO.
Any 2 door white hard rock owners that can post pictures?

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Thank you!!! I think I'm sold on the White. As my Grams would have said...That's sharp!

Do we know if they're going to offer red leather options at all this year? I haven't heard any more.

If not, I am looking into Katzkin custom seats now too for some red accents on the leather seats.
Like these:

Does anyone know if they factory installs the customized Katzkin when you bring the order to the dealer or if the dealer will do the installation themselves?

I believe if you order the Katzkin leather from the factory (the Sound and Leather option), it still only comes in black (more like gray) or saddle.

As to what your dealer can do, you'll have to ask them.

Yeah the HR comes with Black leather only, no options. The Katzkin website let me design my own colors and stitching and all, but then had a print out to take to the dealer. I just wasn't sure what happens after that.

Thank you!
