Is there any rule-of-thumb for how long your vehicle is on the delivery truck? My Jeep departed the rail yard on Monday morning and has still not arrived at the dealership. I just assumed that once it was on a truck it would be delivered within 48 hours.

according to my dealer, shipping problems are system wide as FCA is switching shipping contracts and we are the ones suffering. So don't expect the anticipated dates to be more than a guess

OK, thanks for that info. It's too bad - I'm doing an out of state pickup and had this entire week off. Now I'll have to wait until the first week of December.

Well mine (according to tracking and the dealership paperwork) was delivered to the dealership 6 days ago. However, they cant find it and its a mystery of where its at. im thinking, life time maintance to start and price gets lower longer takes to locate it.

Generally speaking, vehicle shipping is a FUBAR industry. Trying to plan your life around it is like trying to plan your life around Comcast customer service.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I've been wanting a purple Jeep for years and when they finally come out with one, they put it on the wrong model So, I bought myself a 2015 black Rubicon and decided to have it wrapped in purple I love how it turned out and the color is so close to Plum Crazy! I kept the grill black, but the dealership painted my tow hooks, Jeep emblem and all the silver pieces inside with plum crazy.

Honestly I just glanced at it. It wasn't finished yet

Thank you very much Mark.

I have a blue Sahara JKU on order and I am very interested in the DuraTracs on RR Gun Metal wheels. I now know exactly what it will look like. I was thinking about the 315/70R17 but the 285s look plenty big to me now. I was also planning on a 2.5" MetalCloak lift but, now, maybe not.

Out of curiosity, how far do the tires hang outside the fenders? I would very much prefer not to get a constant patina of mud on the side of my new bright beautiful Jeep...

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

For Spidertax 1.5" Spacers on a 2016 Hard Rock Rubicon Unlimited with stock wheels is it best to get the blue or black anodized aluminum when adding Duratrac 285/70/17s no lift? Any photos with this configuration available?

Love it! And the Rubi on top of the wrap - congrats!
