I'll post pics as soon as I get it. I'll use my current Black Jeep as a reference along with the Anvil sample. I'll try to get some different shots in different lighting. I, like the rest, am trying to figure out if it is worth waiting to order Rhino or pull the trigger on another color.

Has anyone heard anything about the UAW affecting new orders out of Toledo Ohio?

You can just change the two locations in the url from 2015 to 2016.
or try Chrysler Group LLC BMO Launch Page
It's crazy how much Chrysler has increased the base prices since the initial 2015 prices last summer. There is nothing new in 2016 that I would want to add to my '15 JK Sahara. I ordered my Jeep last August before the first price increase took effect. If I was to order a Jeep based on the initial '16 pricing and configured it exactly the way I ordered mine last year, I'd be paying $2,195 more MSRP over what I paid last year. And I only ordered maybe half of the available options.

Biggest differences:
* Alpine 9-Speaker w/Subwoofer - $695 ('15) to $945 ('16)
* Trailer Tow Group w/3.73 - $295 ('15) to $990 ('16; 3.73 Axle Ratios - $595, Trailer Two Group - $395)

To be fair, I believe Jeep initially screwed up on the Trailer Tow Group last year and basically gave away the 3.73 Front/Rear Axle Ratios for free before fixing the pricing.

Nevertheless, that's a huge price difference for a JK Sahara. I could only imagine the difference for a fully loaded JKU Rubicon or HHR this year.

I too am dying to see this sample against GCM. GCM is out there on several other jeep models along with several Dodge and Rams. Unlike Rhino where there appears to be no other models out there to see this color on. Would it be possible to take a pic of those samples on a GCM colored vehicle like you are planing on doing with your black Jeep?

Question re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Hi,

I wantd to jump in on this thread and confirm something from the post. I am trying to make an order for a 2016 Rubicon Unlimited in Tank Green here in NorCal. Per the 1st post in this string it looks like this should be possible:

Exterior colors (confirmed):

Billet Silver Metallic Clear Coat
Black Clear Coat
Bright White Clear Coat
Firecracker Red
Granite Crystal Metallic (production launch 10/26/2015)
Hydro Blue
Hyper Green Clear Coat (New) (production launch May 2016)
Mojave Sand (New) (production launch February 2016)
Rhino Clear Coat (New) (production launch 12/14/2015)
Sarge Green (New) (production launch January 2016)
Tank Clear Coat (production ends 11/30/2015)
Xtreme Purple Pear Coat (production starts 11/02/2015)

Discontinued exterior colors:

Anvil (PDS)
Baja Yellow (PYV)
Sunset Orange (PLC)

---

Dealership is telling me that the Tank Green is not available in the 16's anymore however.

Is anyone else getting this same information?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread



Since my Black Bear (with decal (long story)) is taking so long and yesterday seemed to have been delayed a week and now show this week again my dealer took pity and offered this for the week

Had 16 miles on it and that new Jeep smell! It helps take the edge off waiting!

Tank is still available on the 16's on the Jeep site so the dealership may be confused on the date it will be unavailable.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I was preparing to make a trip to place an order for Tank and received the same news from my salesman this past Sat that it was unavailable for the '16s. If thats true, I'm not sure what I want to do, GCM or wait for Rhino.

agreed it's on Jeep site for 2015 (not to mention that although the dealers are pushing people to the 16's already there is NO information on those posted). however, just because it'd there doesn’t mean its available
