If you want painted fenders I'd get em as the factory addition...As Walta said they're textured, and will retain that look when painted...

Will that be an option on the build sheet? I don't see it when I build on the Jeep site

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I gave in & decided to purchase the purple Back Country - we have the Rubicon for four wheeling & this is mainly just a back up to get to & from work when a 2nd vehicle is needed. I have contacted 9 dealerships trying to get quotes but have been told that XP is not available on the dealer order program & a quote can not be given at this time. (three dealerships still think I am crazy and tell me there is no purple) Do I need to wait until the 2nd to get quotes? I had read some people had already ordered theirs. Usually I just show up & pick a vehicle out on the lot - this is my first time ordering in advance so am completely lost.

When I was placing my order for the Hard Rock, I had the sales guy go in and look... I saw the order screen where xtreme purple was an open option. So yes, it is there if they look at that back country package.

Thanks. I figured if I got enough quotes & told them exactly which options I wanted added that this should be a simple process but I guess not.

It will say "Body Color Fender Flares" and the code is MML.

Note that it's not available for all Wrangler models. Just the Rubicon, Rubicon Hard Rock, Black Bear, and Sahara (standard on Sahara, optional on the others). It's not available on the Sport, Sport S, Willys, or Willys W. I'm not sure about availability on the other special models like the Freedom edition, etc.

Freedom Edition includes body colored fenders as part of the package.

Even though there are specific threads just for those topics
Same thing happened on another forum when I ordered my 2012.
You can't underestimate the enthusiasm of a future new Jeep owner.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

After reading a little more on the Freedom edition that may be worth the wait over the Black Bear. I am not an"offroader" and looking for a daily driver that suits my eye. I like the blacked out look with black wheels or the granite wheels on the Freedom. A few more questions, can you order the freedom without the exterior decals and if not they removable? it seems to have all the black(light guards, fuel door, etc) that the altitude had. last year the 430n was not available but hopefully it will be this year and it comes with steps and connectivity group like the Black Bear. Last year I noticed on the site it only came with black hardtop, wonder if body color is available? thanks for all the answers

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I don't know if a body color top will be available but later in the season a tan colored soft and hard top will be available on the Freedom Edition. The tan colored top should complement the new Sarge paint color.
The decals and emblems are changing for 2016. The seats will have Oscar Mike embroidered on them. The star decal is changing and there are going to be some stripes along the side (rumor says). The decals can be removed with heat, but I don't understand why people buy the special editions and then remove the things that make it a special edition. !!!!
The 430N may not be available because the Freedom Edition is based in the Sport and the 430N is not available on the Sport, but we'll see when the Order Specs are released.
