What have you heard, if anything?

Holy crap! I'm so excited! I can finally reorder. Milous, is the production still slated for October 26th or does it appear it will be earlier now?

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.
Anxiously awaiting your update...

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.

Same here... looks like it will be released on the Black Bear if the earlier rendition is to be believed. Who knows though, could be that it is only available on the BB and Hard Rock or the whole model line. Interested to hear what the scoop is....

Also waiting on xtreme purple. The wifey is dying to know. Waited and waited to see if purple was going to make it last year, finally decided to get a 2015 hydro blue, now we find out purple is closer then even of being a reality. So thinking of trading in the 2015 hydro blue for the purple. Need more information order date is getting close.

I see the word "SHEEP" show up in this forum a lot. What does that stand for?

Milous any word on models for Xtreme Purple? We're getting close and I have to decide on Hard Rock v/s Recon v/s Aniversary Edition. I hate to wait much past 10/8/15 to do something. Thanks

I have been like a stalker on here 50 times a day waiting for more information on this as well. I had my heart set on Plum Crazy though - not sure what the Xtreme purple would look like but hope it is closer to Plum Crazy & not more of a Barney or Maroon color. Am also curious as to the Back Country Package.

From the paint codes that were released... they were the exact same as Plum Crazy. The name just didn't cross over since that was Dodge. But Xtreme Purple = Plum Crazy.

Now the question is If\When.....

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.
Hi everyone,

I'm new to this whole forum thing. I was hoping to post my situation and see if anyone can offer some advice.

I ordered a 2015 JK Ultd. (tank) on May 27th, after 9 weeks I was notified by my dealership that "they would be unable to build my jeep in the 2015 model year" and that my order had been pushed to 2016. Now that we're into something like week 20, it seems like people are getting their pre-order 2016's, before I get my pushed 2015 (from MAY)...

I've tried to track the build a couple different ways, but this seems virtually impossible from Canada. My dealer is useless at keeping me updated. So frustrating.

What can I do????
