Yeah, fingers are still crossed for next week. The question left on everyone's mind ..... What models will XP be made available on??? I hate the thought of going into the dealership not knowing.

Exactly... plus, what other mystery 75th anniversary or whatever models are going to be announced and when? Timing Purple just right with model availability will be key.

Typically (although I don't think it happened in Sept) the order guide comes out right before the allocation opens. I think it has been a day or so prior in the past. So it is possible that you would have that info before going in on allocation opening day. If the order guide isn't updated you will probably just get crazy looks at the dealer as they probably won't believe you that Purple is coming out.

What you can count on is if the order guide is released with that info in it Milous will let us know as soon as he can.

I hope you guys get good info next week and that all that want to are able to order some Purple Jeeps (hopefully in whatever model they desire). I'm prob still another month or so away myself.

Good luck

Have they ever released colors that weren't in the brochure?

What happens to the pilots they run? Are they raffled off at a company picnic?

I agree... I have full faith in Milous, that we will provide what he can as soon as he is able.

As far as ordering, we haven't even mentioned Purple to the dealer as we all know what that reaction would be. So, we were going off and use the Granite timing as a what we were telling our salesman. Know we are getting calls on the daily saying we can come order our Granite. I hate to keep putting the guy off, but in the end we want what we want. I just hope we aren't waiting for something that won't be possible, and we could have our order placed now on a different color. I know I know.... First World Problems!

But without a site like this, we would all be completely out in the wind. So, we FULLY appreciate the tidbits of info we are able to receive.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I went down to the dealer I got the 14 from and told him (I've bought 2 vehicles from him) up front that what we were going to discuss was rumor and conjecture. Then I gave him my numbers, what I wanted for the 14, what the 16 priced out to and what I was going to pay (with the Tread Lightly 1% under). He totally understood, said I'd probably know before him but would keep his eyes open for XP. Also said we could deal on my #s..... Just waiting to confirm XP on either Rubi or HR (hoping for the HP)!

For the Wranglers, all the time. Seems always random during a model year (MY) when they drop a color and replace it with another one, with little-to-no notice.

What was it a year ago, they discontinued one Red, and replaced it with a different Red, with only a month left in the MY? Such leads me to ask why not have simply waited the month, and did the Red color change as part of the MY change? But no, Jeep seems to want to keep the color pallet contently changing.

Probably when we are closer to the actual 75th Anniversary year; 2016. If you are waiting, I would set your alarm clock to January 1.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Thanks for the great advice... I looked some things up based on your recommendation, especially the Compressor and Deflators and plan to get those models. Quick question though, it's unclear, can that Compressor mount on the bumper or something? How is it powered?

What I'm trying to solve for is going on the beach on Cape Cod/Martha's Vineyard/Chappaquiddick -- I get an Over-Sand Vehicle Pass but the sand is pretty heavy and need to drop PSI to <15psi to get through it. I'd love to be able to quickly drop all 4 tires (deflators) and quickly re-inflate (this compressor, I think) all while being remote (not near power). Any thoughts here?

Finally, did you have good success cutting down your antenna? I'm a little concerned about doing that, but would like to know what process you followed to make that workable?

If you have any other good experiences/advice, I'd love to hear it.

Thanks,
-Garrett
