re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Don't know if anyone else remembers this but AEV had a JK that was their test mule for the first hemi conversion and Brute conversion. It was also on a show called "Dangerous Drives" where they took it out for the first test in Moab. Anyway it was a color I loved but had never seen on a Jeep. Crazy thing is it sure does look a lot like Rhino on the B&P. I hope it is the same. Check the pic out below of it in Brute form

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Just wanted to post an email I got from Jeep today. I had sent them an inquiry as to why it appeared I was being charged twice for the premium soft top with the black bear package. never expected they would get back to me let alone this response. nice to see they care enough to do the rite thing. chalk one up for the little guy! my email to them is at the bottom.

Dear Robert:
Thank you for your patience.
I have received a response from Jeep Product Management. The factory order system has been updated
to reflect the correct pricing on the Dual Top Group (AEM) for the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport Black Bear.
This is the reply from the manager of Jeep Products:
The error has been corrected and updated code guides went out Tuesday.
Mr. Rowe's vehicle VIN - 1C4AJWAG1GL102156 received the corrected $1,785 pricing so he should be all
set. I verified on the invoice it was correct.

Brief Description:
Dual top option
Comments:
Can somebody please get me an answer or explain the following situation
to
me. I have ordered a 2016 jeep Wrangler Black Bear Edition. I ordered
the
Dual Top option and it shows $2185. when you order the dual top it
omits
the standard soft top and adds the premium soft top. when you add the
black
bear package it includes the premium top. so by adding the BB package
and
the dual top package I feel like I am paying for the premium soft top
twice. a good example of what I am trying to explain is- if you order
the
wrangler rubicon and add the Hard Rock package it includes the premium
soft
top. when you then add the dual top option it is only $1785. they have
deducted for the premium top on that model because the premium top is
included in the Hard Rock package and they are not charging you twice
for
it. In short I should only have to pay $1785 for the dual top with the
black bear package. I called customer care yesterday and they could not
answer my question. My dealer cannot answer the question as well. but
they
all agree that it should not be $2185 with the Black Bear package.
could
you please pass this inquiry along to someone who could get me an
explanation. My Wrangler has been built but not shipped yet. I would
like
to get an explanation before I pay for it. the last 8 on my VIN are
GL102156 thank you very much Robert Rowe

If that's what Rhino turns out to be... nice, very nice. Bit confusing though... when Milous posted a chip of Rhino a while back, it looked very dark, same as the guys who purchased Rhino touch up paint.... dark. But if you go by the Jeep build site it looks light, similar to what you have here. I'm shooting for a light gray myself, but we really won't know til one is spotted in the wild I guess. At this point I'm leaning towards purple... but it would be nice to get a peek at Sarge and Rhino before pulling the trigger.

Which reminds me, can anyone tell me if 5.5% under MSRP is a good deal?

I know the wait is killing me. They are playing mind games. It does look darker in the paint chip but I can hope

I agree, it may be worth it to hold out and see one in person, if it is lighter (similar to Anvil without blue) it could be awesome.
