I almost think I should being 1 of 50. I would normally build more hardcore but just a cool piece of history.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I was holding out for better colors to possibly come out on the JKURHR however Friday when a White one with all my "must have" options rolled off the truck I had to swing by and check out.

I was dead set against white but seeing it with black fenders and hard top changed my opinion. Signed today on papers to replace my Black 2012 JKU Altitude.

Options:
- 4.10 Axle
- Max Tow
- 430N Radio
- Dual Top Group
- A/C with auto temp
- Remote Starter

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Hi does anyone on this thread know if Mopar or the dealership have a 4.10 gearing update available for a Hard Rock Unlimited 2016 that was purchased off the dealer lot not realizing its original order from someone else mistakenly defaulted it to 3.73? Jeep drives great, but concerned once I consider adding a lift and either 34/35 tires as budget permits. Thank you!

P/N's 68017175AB Front, 68035581AA Rear. Its for Dana 44, and you don't need to prove why you need to buy it.

Thank you! So there's no actual Mopar warranty backed similar 4.10 gearing update part available and this Crown Automative is the next best bet correct? Who can I find locally that is best suited to install this gearing update? I'm assuming definitely not the dealer since it's a third party add on. I'm in the Long Island/NYC area thank you

I just saw this is a Mopar accessory part thank you! There's always someone making it for Mopar hence the inflated pricing. Now to see if the local dealer is equipped to upgrade gearing. I'm reading that instead of 4.10 I should be considering 4.56, not sure how this would effect on pavement driving by comparison to the factory available 4.10 gearing. Thanks again!

Also what do you think the dealer could charge for labor if equipped to upgrade gearing to 4.10 on a 2016 Hard Rock JKUR?

Basically the same thing happened to me... white JKU with black fenders and top with all my must haves... just arrived when I was looking for a red one... so viola Haven't regretted it for one day in the last six years.
