Just a gussied up Hard Rock?
We put HRR hood dinoc on them. They then shipped them over to Argus who tore off the Hood dinoc and replaced it with the Red Rock decal. We didn't get to do anything. It's all outsourced.

Argus?

Is that an outside customizer?

Haven't heard anything. Milous usually finds out long before I do. They don't tell us what's planned.

I wouldn't call them customizers. They are an outside contractor that FCA spins small jobs off to.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I would like to order a mojave sand JKUR but I want to wait a month or two, does anyone know if Jeep is planning to close the window for that color anytime soon?

And did I read correctly that if I want to order a custom build 2016 I have to do it before April 15?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I want to buy a JK. Working on getting the down payment together.

I am reading that the JK replacement will go into production in the spring of 2017 as a 2018 model.

Which leads me to ask: Will JKs still be made in the fall of 2016 - e.g. 2017MY? Knowing that would help with my planning!

Fiat Chrysler CEO Marchionne it quoted as saying that the new Wrangler will be out in 4th quarter 2017 (it got pushed back from the late 2nd quarter) so I'd imagine the 2017MY will be made into early 2017.

The 2017 Wrangler will launch this year on September 19th. It is currently scheduled to run a full model year, until mid-late summer 2017.

The delay doesn't surprise me. New designs always seem to get delayed.

Though, I would think that such, would allow the 2017 JK to run at least until the 3rd quarter (right up until the 2018 JL in the following 4th quarter).

If the JL slips any further, like into 1st quarter of 2018, IMHO, it might be called an early 2019.

Or a 2018 and a 1/2.

That would truly be off-roading, wouldn't it?
