Be real careful. There's a couple of threads over in WF started by people who got real upset that someone dared to just look/peek at their JK in a parking lot.

I probably should have put "typically" in bold and underlined. I have found that people sometimes take hopes and turn them into expectations.

Short of being an senior executive in the Jeep food chain, having expectations of what will happen and exactly when is wasted energy and a prime source of Jeep Forum Frustration heretofore known as JFF.

Exactly what I was wanting to know. Thanks for that clear explanation. I hear ya, on "typically" too. At least I know it's possible (usually) to put an order in before that date listed.

I really like that rhino color, at least in the book and on the site. But sometimes that can be misleading of course.

I guess it depends on the Jeep owner. I don't mind anyone checking out Tankie. As long as they don't damage him, they can touch whatever they want.

Just don't look like you're going to steal it and you should be fine!

The current order guide lists Tank as available for the Freedom Edition only.
The Freedom Edition is set to begin production 11/2.
Tank is supposed to end production 11/30.

No more tank Hard Rock Rubicon, so sad!! I waited way too long in anticipation of getting the updated model. But now that I'm hearing 2018, tank was definitely in the running again. Any update by Milous perhaps as well thanks for the quick response.

Well if you want one, there's a 2016 JKURHR in tank sitting on the dealer lot here in Elmira.

Sure looks like it. Weird it appears to be missing bumpers.

Building in the background is the Wrangler Paint Facility. Might be waiting to be shipped to the outside vendor to have the Moab style bumpers installed.
