This wait is gonna kill me...
Wondering the same. Does it still look like Granite is going to start production in October?

Maybe have an information desk for brief questions and just let people see maybe 1 or 2 of each model on the floor. I think cars would fly out of that dealership they'd need much less parking area space and could focus more on service and parts where they make most of their money anyway.
That would be Tesla's sales model, and they got rid of the dealer too... :-)

I'm wondering the same thing, was hoping Milous had some info on this. Would love to order granite.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

talked to jeep chat today as my jeep is done and been sitting in the storage yard for 3 days. I was informed that my jeep was selected for 100% inspection. Well as much as that's killing me, our last car was 2 years old and had the transmission rebuilt 5 times. had to go through the long Lemon law process with Ford. so I guess this is an extra piece of mind for me. they said it should be released very soon.


Maybe my names on a list? LOL

Bit of a bland palette, though, really.

Well it appears mine was finished late last night. Hope they weren't tired or in a hurry with mine. And my delivery date pushed back

I like the hypergreen chip in post # 1296 better. It looks a lot different to me. Does anyone have a way to put the chip in #1296 next to this picture?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Really don't care for the color-matched bumper covers. The silver on my Sahara was bad enough and I took them off, but these just look horrid.

I would say that the colors are not great representations of the actual colors. Firecracker Red is much brighter than that image and the Hydro Blue looks too dark. Don't bet on Rhino looking like it does there.
