It also shows "late availability" in the PDF of the order guide I got.

All I can say is that the salesman checked with his GM and was told it's a go for early ordering. I hope so because none of the other colors really do anything for me. You might want to call another dealer for a second opinion. The dealer I checked with is Oursiman Jeep in Alexandria, VA. Fairly big dealership.

I'm talking with a very large volume dealership in Texas. Granite Crystal Metallic wasn't even on the screen when he pulled it up (nor was the Sand color nor Hyper Green).

I didn't see it either when I put in my order on the 10th.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Hi, first off, thanks to Milous and pat@fieldsauto for starting and maintaining these information threads! Also thanks to ArcherAce for having the inside scoop.

I have two questions about the 2016 Willys Wheeler 23k package:
1. What is the difference between the "trailer tow group AHT" for $395 msrp and the "max tow package AHQ" for $495 msrp on a manual transmission vehicle?

2. Are the WILLYS decals on the hood and the 4 wheel drive decal on the tailgate factory applied or dealer applied during pdi?

Thanks for the help and all the great information.

Get Trailer Tow. Max Tow includes 3.73 gears, which are already included on the Willys Wheeler. You'd be paying $100 for nothing. The ordering system really should be fixed to not allow Max Tow on vehicles that already have 3.73s. (Or 4.11s on the Rubicon).

Pretty sure it's at the factory. Someone who knows for sure will chime in, no doubt.

I'll chime in, since applying this decals is part of my job.

Yes we put them on at the factory. They are very simple to remove if you don't like them. Just be sure to get to it sooner than later. The longer they are on the harder the become to remove. They will also, over time, leave a ghost image in the paint.

The only way you'll ever get my WILLYS decals is when you pry them from my cold dead hands!

Skip the tow group completely and save $300 by installing the kit yourself. The Basic tow package is simply a receiver and 4-pin harness (anti-sway is part of the stability control already). Max tow adds 3.73 gears, which you already have in a Willys (as already mentioned). The receiver and 4-pin cost less than $100 through aftermarket companies.

This is the reason I want to remove them. Anyone know if I can buy an OEM set just to hang on to? I'd like to have the choice to put them back on when (rather, if) I sell it someday. Probably would leave them on if they're unavailable or crazy expensive. I know.....OCD on my part.
