If there is nothing special about it, then why do so many people yearn for it?

Though, to mention, one cannot buy the front bumper, #11, on the right. Jeep keeps re-using that picture, and seems clueless on what Mopar actually does sell.

Maybe because we have been teased for so long that it was coming. I wouldn't pay extra for it & would have just painted one, the reason I didn't was because I didn't want to pay that extra.

It's only special in the sense that it comes around once in a blue moon and certain people have that as a preference. It's like the oranges, greens and yellows- there's plenty of people that love those colors in Jeeps but would be upset it was an additional price to have that color. I'd say I remember just as many people yearning to see Baja and Sunset Orange last year as those of us clamoring for purple...

...some of us just are in a position to buy a new car, our wife has wanted a purple jeep for 25 years and this is the first time in that timeframe the money and availability on a new vehicle are lining up.

With sound? I don't think I have ever come across such. Sound to hear the crunching of what's behind you?

Beyond that, there are hundreds of possible answers, with a group supporting each one of those choices. Location of camera. Quality of camera. Lines or no lines. Adjustable lines. Different views. Split screen (or not). Full kit or roll your own. It goes on and on.

Regardless, since you haven't actually ordered the HR yet, get your salesperson to write into your contract, that their service dept will activate feature code XAC for free.

Its been featured on a few different concept/show Wranglers over the past few years. Just never actually offered it for sale.

It appears to be a variation of the 10A/X/HR front bumper, but modified to allow it to be sold/used in Europe. I would guess that at one time, Jeep was going to offer that bumper on the Europe bound 10A/X/HR, but for some reason, backed off to using the regular European front bumper instead.

Backup Camera with sound. I am referring to the beeps that get faster as you get closer to an object.

Oh. Those are usually two completely different and independent things. There are (many) cameras you could get. There are backup sensors that determine your distance (and Jeep even makes an aftermarket kit for the Wrangler) that you could get.

The OEM backup sensors:

Backup-Driving Assistance - Park Distance Sensors: 82213540
