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

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.

Current order guide shows Radio 430N as an option for the Black Bear and Freedom Editions.

This is the first I have heard of a hard top in tan. Does anyone know if it will be a textured tan, or a painted tan?

And how does it look with the black fenders? I'm assuming it would also retrofit a 2015...?

Everything I've seen points only towards a tan premium soft top... a tan hard top would be killer but I'm not putting any money on it showing up. My old TJ came with dual tan tops... loved it.

Post pics...whoever sees one in the wild first. If it goes well with the saddle interior, I'd pick one up in a heartbeat.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

thank you all for the advice. I followed up with the dealer ship to get a better offer. I'm just not clear how the affiliate program work. can some one that works at a dealership clarify that for me please.

I'm currently an affiliate member for two years now from Access Fund and Tread Lightly. I do have two control numbers printed.

I asked the sales representative to give me a better offer using my affiliate program. He stated that i would get 1% from each affiliate program that would towards my down payment and not reduce my msrp value .

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Not sure how having 2 works but having one based on Tread Lightly guarantees a price no higher than 1% under invoice. If he's saying he'll give 1% for each for a starting point of 2% I'd not complain and go from there. Can you get the Mil Rebate? That'd give you another 1%+... Remember it's not a bad thing for them to make money on the deal so long as you are good with it.

I got about 3% under using TL & the Mil rebate (most if not all of which they get back). I'd rather have the money coming out of FCAs pocket than the guys I'm going to count on if something goes wrong.....

Affiliate pricing guarantees a sale price of 1% below invoice, which is well below MSRP. If the dealer is suggesting otherwise, I suggest you find another dealer.

If the dealer is giving you affiliate pricing he has to show you the Chrysler order sheet... Look towards the bottom and there will be 3 numbers. One is HB for Holdback (money back to dealer), the next is FFP for friends/family (this is the affiliate pricing), and the last will be EP for Employee Pricing (must be a FCA employee). The FFP is your number and will be 1% under invoice plus the $75 processing fee.

The dealer can go less than the 1%, but they cannot go any higher by the rules of the program with FCA. If they do they will not get their money.

UGH! HELP! Just built a new 2-door Jeep Rubicon Hard Rock at an Indianapolis, IN. Got everything done and went to pick the color, Tank. Doesn't show up, not available! I thought you could order Tank until 10/31/15! Is it really to late for Tank?

My understanding was it would be in production up until 11/30, not available to order up until then. Not positive though...
