re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So many bad Jokes can be inserted here.. And Why do I suddenly feel like a Chicken Hawk **DOH***

Also got off the Phone with the Dealer in Texas for the Group buy.. I have him looking out for anything Purple to show up in his computer. The minute that happens I am pulling the trigger on Something! I have been waiting a long time for purple to drop.. if it turns out to be a bad joke, there is always Hyper Green in April

I heard a rumor that says all I have to do is wash my 2016 Tank Wrangler with paint thinner and it'll turn extreme purple. Anybody know if there's truth to this rumor?

(it was a joke son, I say a joke!)
I am glad we got four doors. We have 1 kid & had 4 large dogs when we bought it so needed the space. . . & I always seem to have a pile of crap to take no matter where we go.
As for jokes - I thought the announcement of purple was a joke until I went back to page 1 & it was on the color list. I have lost the desire to work today!

it was on the color list as late availability last year, too... That's why there's a healthy dose of skepticism. Never had the kind of details like "ordering opening next month" and suppliers making parts in purple tho. Also, last year milous only included it on the first page as it was in somebody's paint color list, but he never provided details like he provided in the last couple days. I'm still trying to brainstorm the best way to hedge my bet by taking delivery of the Tank one that should be on the lot today or tomorrow but also order a purple when it opens and then sell the tank...

Re: Jeepgarage exclusive info!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But will the roll bar pads match?

Also would like to add I logged in thinking it would take me like 5min to get up to date on anything new from over the weekend, now 30min later I probably should get back to work.

Gore-Tex/cloth on the the 75th for some reason makes me think it will be Sport based.

The one I'd think about trading wouldn't fetch enough I don't think. Heck, trade in both of them and I can just keep the TJ!

Oh, I see. I remember last year I had it on my calendar for February 10th or March 10th as a late availability but then the day came & nothing.

Speaking of which, I was thrilled to find the PDFs posted of the TJ FSM when I joined- is there perhaps coming like that for the JK, or am I stuck going out and dropping the $200 or whatever it is on the new Jeep's manual? That's one of the first things I tend to do when I get a car that's new to me (but I couldn't find one back in 2004 for the TJ and kept putting it off...).

It was pretty much the perfect storm last year as people remembered the late availability and small window for ordering the Copperhead Pearl (I think it was called) so a lot of us just put off ordering all year until we found out that Plum Crazy Purple (Extreme Purple apparently) was going to be that model year's penny color.

I maintain, the only reason purple is really going to happen this year is because we gave up. Everybody chip in to my "Selling a brand new jeep depreciation fund" as a thank you to me.
