Post #1 has been updated with a few additional details on this special edition.

Optional 3.73s? Dana 30? Yet comes with steel bumpers?

(Said in a whiny Nancy Kerrigan voice) WHYYYY? WHHHYYYHHHYYYHHHYYY?????

My XP dream bubble has burst.

The trail kits are now being put in the jeeps at the factory. This started at the beginning of the week.

Would that include sport models as well or just the ones that got them before(Rubicon/HR...)? That would be an awesome surprise.

Can anyone explain what Black Mesh Sport Fabric Insert means on the Winter X/ Back Country? I need leather seats, is this similar or more cloth like? I have dogs and a 6 year old, so I need something easy to clean.

That's good to hear. I know it's been said before, but things change and now that people have actually gotten their delivered I'm going to ask again to make sure. For Hard Rocks, what all do you need to make sure is either provided in vehicle or via service department?

My current "double-check" list is as follows.

Torx kit
Freedom Top bag
Floor mats (do you still get carpet ones with the all-weather ones?)
Grab handles (what specific ones does this refer to?)
Garment hooks
Tow strap kit (is this the trail kit?)

If anyone could please let me know if any of those are wrong or being confused with something else that would be awesome!

Sounds like good news re your agreement so far Archer. Happy for you guys. I was in on two strikes during my time with a construction union and it's never good when these things stretch out over a significant period of time. When you have a family depending on you... it makes for some very rough waters. So good for you my friend.

Sounds great... I remember Milous posting months ago about the Freedom Edition getting a new look. Sounds like it should look pretty sharp. Add in the new Tan Premium top... hmmmm, now I'm torn between the Black Bear and this.
Too bad re Purple, really surprised they're not releasing it across the line. The first rendition of it that popped up showed it on a Black Bear. I wonder if later on it will be available on more models?

The jack is still in the small cubby hole near the tailgate opening. You lose the oblong 1' x 2.5' storage that was located in the center of the space under the lift-up panel because it's filled with the sub-woofer.

The space is/was perfect for stowing a tow line and d-rings etc., it will be missed
