I know, right? That's how far off they can be. The 0001 jeep might look totally different to you on your monitor

Are all of these Sarge Green? They look like 3 different colors.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

ArcherAce:
Spotted the V0001 green Jeep through an Allpar article while researching a (2008) concept Jeep that I think was called Sarge 8 (whick looked pea soup green). I clicked on a link in that article and spotted the V0001 bright green Jeep on an overseas assembly line. I liked the look of your actual Sarge photo of the front side panel. I thought you had also mentioned the color was sort of a shamrock green (V0001 appeared to have a shamrock look). Could you better describe the Sarge green? For instance, in comparison to Wrangler greens of a few years back, such as Jeep Green or Natural Green. Also, any word regarding the models Sarge will be available on? Thanks.

To me, this pic looks just like the bottom pic of a J8 Green Jeep...

Most dealers should be quoting you at 6-8 week time frame once ordered. However allocation needs to be available, if it is the turn around time has been lightning quick right around 4-5 weeks. So if you ordered it now likely you would see it the end of January. Other factors involved as well such as hot tagging the vehicle once it lands off the rail to the drop off yard. But if you wait much longer February will become more likely.

Another video showing albeit a Trailhawk Cherokee but here is another example from the start of the video the front of the vehicle looks darker in Rhino, yet as the camera pans to the back when the sun hits it you see a much lighter grey.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

The front Sahara grill with the silver inserts has clips / entirely different front facia. If you try to remove the 7 silver inserts (as I've attempted with other 2016 Sarah's) you will be left with tabs that stick out within those slots. I'm wondering if through parts they will ever offer matching colored inserts & I'd totally buy them. I suppose any body shop can paint them if they don't offer them. That should really be an option you can de-select when ordering a 2016 Sahara. The Sport and Rubicon don't have them, and look cleaner. I think the extra flair on the Sahara front grill and inserts where the front main headlights are cosmetically an eye sore.

It must be a dealer allocation issue , both dealers that i went to said they couldn't even order it yet..and one is a very high volume dealer (over 100 2016 jku in stock right now). Sometimes i think they say things just to get you to buy whats on the lot.

I ordered a Rhino last month and Rhino production started 12/14. Mine was built on 12/16 and is now on a rail car with an est. delivery date of Dec 31-Jan 6.

Just got back from the dealership, tried to order a JKURHR in Rhino. That color was not available on the Hard Rock. Anyone know why?
