Not that far from what you can get a 2016 for below invoice. If they wanna move 2015's, offer 10%+ below invoice or its a just a bad deal

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Can any of you that ordered the backcountry confirm that the body color hard top cost you an extra $1,100?

I am weighing an order vs '15 x on the lot and trying to compare $'s.


I went to a dealer to check out the cherokee trailhawk in Rhino yesterday and it seemed very light to me. I was expecting an grey/darkish blue....can't wait to see the BC and Rhino in the real world or some marketing material.

More expensive than a rubicon and you still miss out on "standard" front and rear lockers, front D44 as well as the disco. BC is not worth the price if it competes directly with the rubicon.

Extreme purple does not even come close to making the backcountry worth it.

As much as I love XP I have to agree. If it's not offered on Rubi or HR then not worth it.....

I assume #1 is due to the leisurely pace at which Jeep updates their website. However, #2 sounds like BS. I called the affiliate help line and they said there is no such restriction.

Any advise would be appreciated.

The base MSRP on the online sticker for the JKU I ordered in October went up by $400 from when I ordered so it sounds like another price increase.

I had one dealer give me the "get in trouble for going below 1%" line so I went to another dealer and got 3%. I probably could have pushed for more but the dealer was nice and I am soft so I took it.

Agreed- I even thought about buying one to be sent straight to AEV to get it JK350'd, but when adding up the price of a D44 front in with everything else, it was just crazy. As much as my wife's been wanting a purple JKU, she even agrees. We'll be keeping our Tank 2016 JKURHR unless they open up XP on a JKURHR, and then we'll have a well taken care of low mileage Tank 2016 JKURHR up for sale.
