No production today or tomorrow. They shut the plant down for cleaning.

Maybe while they are cleaning the joint they could "accidently" get the Hypergreen paint out and start spraying?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Anyone know if the Factory remote starter can be installed by the dealership after the fact? Or is it separate wire harness/module which can't?

Reason I ask is I am supposed to meet with my dealer once they get full order capabilities for 2016 JKUHRs. Right now claim only limited options. Anyways, this one just came in Friday night and not yet spoken for but only option doesn't have on my "must have" is the factory remote start. I've had issues with aftermarkets so really wanted it included. Questioning if worth trading in my 2012 JKU Altitude now for this or hold out for a special order and get that months out. Really wasn't a fan of Hydro Blue but seeing it in person and the colors availible in this thread thinking might be the final choice anyways.

Any insight is much appreciated.

I would think so, might be a ton more ($) for the installation as opposed to factory equipped...

No warranty with aftermarket parts...

Go back down and ask if the one in the pic gots you excited...You know, bird in hand...Nice looking jeep...

The dealership should be able to install that remote start option, it would be the same factory parts and it probably plugs into the current wiring harness somewhere. You would also have factory warranty on the parts and installation as well. Talk to the dealership about it first. Lastly, you might get a better deal on this Jeep because it is sitting on their lot and they would want to move it before the month ends.

If you're still hesitating and can wait a month or so, I think you'd be happiest ordering it exactly to your specifications right from the factory. If you don't want or need to keep your 2012, use it as trade-bait. Wranglers have high resale value. Just my 2 cents...

My Jeep will be in on Tuesday or Wed so no worries. Gonna take Thursday off and take delivery. Taking Friday and Monday off too so this is gonna be a HUGE weekend for me and gonna make an event out of getting to know the new Rubi HR. I'm 37yo and always bought base model practical vehicles (including a YJ & TJ sport) in the past so this is my first "treat myself" vehicle in my life!

Yoodie, This is considerably lighter compared to what you posted in the past. Does it seem this light in person? Perhaps comparable to Anvil (less blue) and not as dark as first thought?

Wow, I have never seen a dealer stock Hard Rock without the Remote Start option. I figured it was a high-profit option so they always load it into every lot order.
