That was my question to the fellow that said there was a tentative agreement, I believe he is reading the story from Sept 15 were the union voted no

Was hoping he was a union member and was in the know, but I think not.

BTW I am Shultz I know nothing

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Everything I've been reading in the trade rags says that they'll most likely strike a strategic plant (like Kokomo transmission) that will have a big impact while having fewer workers on actual strike. If that's the case, perhaps it won't impact Wrangler production (at least manual transmission models since I believe the 6 speed is sourced from Germany)

There's no way some plants will be allowed to continue work. They will strike at just enough plants that all of them must stop. That way they keep the fewest number of members pulling from the strike fund and the workers from other plants can go onto normal unemployment.

Thought we might want to get back on the subject.

I have a 730N on my 2112. Looking for what I can expect with a 430N on my 2016.

We have a 430N on the 2016 we got a few weeks back. I'm used to the Garmin interface, so I'm right at home with it. I've never actually had such a full featured stereo, so it really kind of blows my mind. Having favorite artists that the radio tells you are on some other satellite station? Cool. Voice recognition stuff is pretty intuitive, display is a bit washed out in direct sun... That's about the most negative I can say about it. ...but again, no cool screen on any radios before now.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Yes a Union still has a place in our work force. Former Local 287 for almost 27 years. Borg-Warner Automotive. Also went through 2 strikes. Nobody ever really gains from those especially long drawn out ones. Other ways to prove a point more peacefully. Miss my "family" from the factory/union years. Made a lot of 4X4 transfer cases for Ford and GM. Wish the employees and family's a speedy and successful negotiation at Toledo Jeep plant and all other FCA plants. And the rest of the big 3.

I ordered the 430 on my 16. I have it on my 15 too and like it.

My GCM has gone to D1 status today with an estimated ship date of 10-27 but I'm not getting my hopes up until the UAW deal is settled.
