re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

My knowledge of purple came from a person in management that was involved in the launch of the 16MY. I also heard about it from a supplier that that saw parts his company would be providing for the 16MY. He said they were purple.

I suppose it still may not be true though.

Aaaaaah! Now I have to figure out Granite or Purple. I didn't want to wait it out as my golden ticket expires Nov 2, so had an easy decision. Now I have to agonize over this for the next 3 weeks! Thanks FCA!!!

Well, I really didn't want to offer any specific details, but since my rep is on the line:

My son's brother's sister works for a Toyota dealership in the parts department. Her husband's sister-in-law is bff with a used car salesman at a major Jeep dealer, by far the largest in the city. The used-car salesman's brother has some inside contacts at a long-time mid-sized dealership in Detroit, and information from that source has proven to be extremely reliable in the past.

1) For me, THAT confirms it beyond a shadow of a doubt! Can't get better than that.

2) Anyone here who questions your reputation (or ArcherAce's, for that matter) simply hasn't experienced it before.

Thank you again for sharing your insight with us. It really has brought a lot of positive excitement here.

Hmmm.....I think we may be related on wife's mother's grandmother's side?

A BFF is involved? That's as good as being written in stone for me... BFFs don't mess around. That stuff is as good as being under oath. Thanks Milous!

Especially if a pinkie swear was involved. Was one?

I guess I'll talk to my dealer when the Tank one comes in to see if I can get some sort of a bulk discount if I order another JK the next month.

If they were making official announcements, we wouldn't need a place like this.
