I see other people have placed orders so no idea why this is rocket science in my area!
Milous said the next allocation is on Thursday.
Perhaps ordering for the Backcountry will get cleaned up then?

On the bright side - I was told the two orders that were placed did come with the 3 piece black hardtop so that is a bonus that it is indeed an option.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I requested paper copy of a 2016 Wrangler sales brochure online weeks ago. Yesterday I received a brochure but it was 2015, not a 2016 like the link said.

I emailed customer support, they apologized and said the 2016 Wrangler brochures were not printed yet. Does anyone know when you typically can request a printed 2016 brochure?

Here's the link if anyone wants a 2015 brochure still. These are extremely nice documents I received, way better then what you'd typically find in a dealership.

Same happened to me. I don't know why their sending out the 2015 brochures when you can't order one any longer. I would have waited to receive the 2016 when it comes out.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Does anyone know what determines if a wrangler comes with a transmission cooler, factory installed? Mine is auto with max tow, but no mention of trans cooler on the build sheet. Thanks.

There should be a smaller "radiator" in front of the main radiator. Only 3.6L's with an automatic can have it.

There is a pic of one, that I hope might help. Look thru the grill slots, and you see it from roughly the 20% point to the 90% point:

Yes, I've seen them, just wondering what determines whether or not it has one. Some do some don't.....I will have Auto and max tow, just curious as to whether mine will have one.

Walt what is your thought on grill inserts to protect radiators from rocks?

I have a 1 piece cover that mounts inside, across all the grill slots. Though, functionally, its the same as the inserts.

BTW, that's just a 'net picture I grabbed to help explain. With my grill cover, its hard to get a picture of the transmission cooler.

Its basically a 3.6L engine with an automatic transmission (and $25 in cash to AA? ).

Anything different is either a factory escape, or one someone modified it themselves.
