re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Quick question for you...wondering how much you asked for your 14 trade in. Is it close to what kbb lists the trade in value at? Curious because I have an 09 unlimited that I will be trading in when I place my order and I have no idea what I should expect to get at the dealer.

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)!

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,

I think (not sure) it can be mounted. It is powered by the battery in the Jeep. Leaving the engine running, connect the compressor to the battery and a ground (like you'd jump a car) and hit the power switch. Viola! Compressed air. I was knew to all of this, but it quickly becomes old hat. The deflators are a must. I air down to 20PSI from 38 and by the time I've screwed on the last one, the first one is ready to come off. It really only takes minutes to air down and back up. But I'm running the standard 32" tires. Bigger tires take longer. I carry the compressor in its bag in the back and stow my deflators with the compressor (so I don't lose them).

The antenna is easy. Take a grinder with a cutting wheel and cut it to length. File the new tip into a bit of a cone and put the ball back on. If you do a Google search "Adventures with Tankie" you'll find my build thread on the Wrangler Forum. All mods and adventures to date are documented there. I've done things that a novice can do. Haven't done the hard core lifts/tires/etc. just little things to build knowledge and experience.

Always happy to answer questions.

The stock antenna is nice because it's just a bit higher than the hardtop. If you pull into a parking garage with your lifted Jeep and the antenna hits the clearance sign, you'll know you might be in trouble.

Arrrrrrgh!!!! Will we ever find out what XP is going to be on so we can go in prepared???? Finger is on the trigger, just an ounce or so more pressure and a 16 XP is ordered!!!

You might have guessed patience is not one of my virtues............

I've only have so many large cement blocks I can blow into small cement fragments.........

At this point my guess is it will be available across the board. From the lowliest Sport to the mightiest Hard Rock. I don't see why they would limit it to any certain model. Also, isn't XP taking over for Tank when it's run comes to a close? So that's my guess anyways.

Yes, I hate this not being prepared thing. I know FCA wants to maintain interest throughout the cycle.... but if this is indeed going to happen THURSDAY, I'd hope to have a plan going in or know if I need to fall back to plan B. Hell, I'm already planning on coming in late to work on 10/8 so I can swing by the dealership to drop off a deposit.

I already gave the GM at my dealership a spreadsheet with my build and deposit so he can enter my order for XP as soon as it opens

You purple people are obsessed! You act like Jeep has been taunting you for a couple years with rumors of the mythical purple JK.

In all seriousness I hope the quest is settled soon.
