Seriously Jeep, you could have stepped up your game a weeee bit more for a 75th edition. It is a nice looking Jeep, but IMHO, they could have taken the ball and ran a little further...

That's just it! There are sooooo many cool ways to modify a Jeep. You would think they would look at some of the current trends and incorporate just a little bit more. Or, use a Rubicon base!!

But, I know it's easier said than done. Maybe seeing one in a different color will change my mind.

To me it's unclear if you can get a black hardtop in a 75th Anniversary wrangler. The fenders flares are forced body colored, is the hard top also?

Hopefully we can order the 75th anniversary badges to put on the outside of our 2016s...fingers crossed.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

A butt load of people including top builders dont care about putting 35/37's on the Dana 30's so Jeep know the majority of Wranglers are Sports or Saharas, their cash cows so THIS is why its not a Jeep base.
Thing is they should have made in available on ALL models. The special Shittt is not special at all just colors.

Nice one again Jeep.
Sheep.

It's a Jeep part so it'll eventually be available like any other part.
I'd expect a large amount of 2016 owners in this forum will be making that purchase.

I agree...I would like to have seen red be a possible color. Bronze accents may have looked OK with red.?......I like silver as well but not sure how bronze accents would look on silver.....not real crazy about the wheels and the silent armor tires either....still a shame FCA didn't decide to make the Red Rock Edition available to the masses

Found them on eBay already. $45. Just like when the willys came out and the 4wd stickers were available and expensive I expect the price to drop

He loves it and will tell you all about his "Jip" and then point and tell you all about "Dada's Jip." Yes, I do realize it is too big for him, but come on it matched mine too good so there was no way it wasn't ending up under the tree

Holidays were busy but I skimmed over the last few pages and saw where some negative stuff was bubbling up. Yes, price increases and all of that sucks but that is everywhere(don't even get me started on the Disney vacation I am about to take.) Take it from a guy who sold his soul for 2 years and leased a Camry Hyrbid back in 2009, my attempt to be a responsible adult. The fit and finish on that car was great and I am sure I could have gone 100's of thousands of miles with little to no issues, but that car had no soul to it. Dad raised me to be a car guy and after that brief Camry experiment I realized just how much driving a vehicle you are passionate about matters. We wouldn't be here if we weren't passionate about Jeeps but lets leave the to politicians and reality TV.

I love it!!
