re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Wow, the decision to wait for rhino or go with GCM just got real. I realize the production launch for rhino is mid December...So I'm assuming orders will open in November? Can anyone comment as to whether or not Jeep will release any additional pics of the color when order window opens? Or will we have to wait for the first ones to hit a dealer lot to get a look at it?

Thumbs down re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Our 2016 JKU RHR has two elastic loops around the driver side rear seat buckle strap that goes down between the seats. One's more like an elastic band, one's more like an elastic cord. Any ideas why? They pull the belt more towards the outboard side of the seat and it makes it kinda tough for the kids to get the buckle when it's pulled pretty much under their car seat. I'm about ready to cut them off (I spent about 10 minutes trying to wiggle them out over the buckle, but they're looped pretty tight and my fingers were getting tired).

Is it just to keep that buckle from getting folded into the other part of the seat when only folding the larger side, perhaps?

TIA.

I sat around for the last year saying "I should have gotten GCM, what was I thinking". My wife is tired of hearing it. I would have pulled the trigger a year ago if it were available.

Now it's finally available and I'm waiting for Rhino! I'm hoping that the first rhino in person I see is mine.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Thanks to Milous for this service. My Jeep was delivered just after 7 this morning. It didn't make the morning update and Jeep Chat at noon would only tell me it was KZ and they couldn't say where it was. The 1430 update showed it delivered but the dealer never called. We had to tell our salesman that the Jeep was here after he returned calls at 530 this afternoon. He doesn't think we can get it till Friday. Ugh. At least it is here. I need a new dealer as I don't think this relationship can work.

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?
Interesting someone on page 154 posted the colors for Sahara and I don't see it there. However, I was looking at a 2016 Hydro-Blue JKUHRR which just came in and someone already beat me to. Speaking to my salesman I know well we plan to sync up in a few days to put in an order. I mentioned wanted Tank and he didn't say was a problem. I'll touch base with him in the next few days and see if any issues. I'm in Massachusetts not that should matter too much.

** UPDATE ** Checked with Dealer this AM and yes same info. Told me Jeep is saying TANK is discontinued for 2016!!! Troubling Development.

They wont call you. you can bug your dealer but your best bet is to sign up here for level 3 or higher ($25) and have Milous track it for you. he updates at least twice a day. more often 3 times a day. his tracking is way more accurate than what you get from your dealer or contacting jeep chat.
jeep chat just gives you words like "soon" or "shipping"

I ordered my Jeep on July 22nd and they started 2016 production on Sept 2nd. $25 to keep an eye on my 31K baby. worth every dime. once you sign up you will have access to the tracking section. he has all the definitions for the codes and shipping lingo there.

So Milous can get my vin # for tracking, because I have no info on the vehicle except that they told me 6 to 8 weeks, thanks

I think it will have to be a blind leap of faith to order Rhino in either Oct or November or wait until late Dec/early January to see one in person on the lot.

Yoodie sent me the touch up paint for Anvil and Rhino and I will be posting multiple pics in different lighting and comparing with black and GCM if that helps, but my concern is that you won't know what you are getting until you see it on an actual JK, like Anvil which was all over the map until we saw it in person. Hope this helps.

Xtreme Purple???

Anyone? October 8th still a go?

I know this has been teased for years... But this sounded very hopeful this year. And now people are getting through on GCM, I was thinking that Oct 8th was the order date for that color. Soooooo lost here.

no, you need to call your dealer and get your VIN or a least the VON (vehicle order number) they should have a VON within a day or two from ordering
