I mean, 44 in front, lockers, HR hood, HR bumpers. Either that, or is a member of the Farkle Family.
Maybe Archer based that off just seeing the one Axle Lock button minus the Sway Bar Disconnect button, I am pretty sure that is how the set-up works on the Sahara based editions that get just the rear locker.

Sahara



Rubicon

Is there any vendor that sells good quality turn signals and side markers like this?

Possibly, I am putting to much weight on "lockers" vs. simply as you surmise, "locker".

Though, my point is, just how many Rubicon-like things can you add onto a Sahara, before it really becomes more of a Rubicon?

Any chance you noticed what transfer case it is running, is there?

I suppose there's also a limit into what you can potentially mention...

If I could add a currie anti-rock sway bar to a purple jeep that'd get it close to a rubicon's configuration, my wife may get her purple this year afterall!

I did think about that a lot, but I'm not paying Rubicon prices for a rig I'm going to immediately tear half of out to upgrade to Rubicon specs (4:1 transfer, two locked D44s running 4.10s, currie anti-rock, springs). I was very disappointed by the Back Country. Not to mention the decals. Oy!

Right now we're toying with:
A) Keep the 2016 Tank JKU RHR we bought with no color changes, mount up a winch, paint the half doors I bought Tank and rock on
B) Wrap the 2016 (but I'm curious about the cost of covering even all the green inside
C) Paint the 2016 (curious of the cost of painting even all the green inside

...and of course, the current course of action: Do nothing we can't easily reverse to the Tank 2016 figuring we can sell it if a decent purple option comes from the factory.

Sahara


This is what the switch looks like. I'm sorry if it caused any confusion. I admit I'm no where near as knowledgeable as many of our forum members. I saw the lock button and assumed it meant both front and rear.

Sorry, no purple. I don't know if that means they will not be offered in purple or they just didn't running with this batch.

No. I didn't climb underneath it

Go with A and take the money you would spend to wrap it and MOD the heck out of it.
