re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Definitely disappointed in the purple limitation here too. I don't understand the rationale for it. Not sure if I want to settle for another color or just pick another vehicle to buy from my "always wanted one of those" list this year.

Hopefully XP is just showing only on the Back Country Edition because both were just announced. I can't imagine FCA releasing a color on just one model. Let's wait and see if the color pops up on other models soon...fingers crossed.

This is my hope. I woke up all excited this morning & now I am more like - eh. Mixed feelings right now & really hate leather seats!

FCA wouldn't let you get a Freedom Edition in Tank. Tank. One of the most military looking colors and you couldn't get it on a Wrangler dedicated to those that serve. FCA has never been a company with careful thought about colors and models.

I'm sure hoping you're right...that they will release on other models because the Back Country isn't built up enough.

Based on the name "Back Country" I figured it was going to take the HR to a new level. I should remember not to judge a model by it's title.

In 2012, Arctic Chill was introduced only on the Arctic Edition.
Later in the year, the color was released to other models under Winter Chill.

Nope. On the 2015s you couldn't get Tank. Sorry. I should have mentioned that. :-/

Non-Arctic Edition ordering for Winter Chill was open for 1 month.
Supposedly, there were only a few hundred made during that time.

That is what I thought. I had imagined one all ready to take out - instead of having to go out to get it lifted - I had hoped it would come with a lift, 35s, etc. but that was just wishful thinking on our part.
