I don't know... gut feeling tells me Hyper will be one of those colors that is gone as quickly as it was offered. Not my cup of tea... but I can appreciate it's coolness if you know what I mean. Agree 100% re the risk factor.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Yo ArcherAce my man!

First off good stuff on Toledo not only keeping the wrangler but getting to build more of them, job security .

I have been reading some of the articles about the eventual JL model manufacturing ramp-up in Toledo along side the JK. Most places spin the dual manufacturing of the JL and JK as having to do with time it takes to change lines and such, the cynic in me wonders if the JL is going to be such a change that they feel like they need to keep selling the JK for a bit to get those buyers who won't accept the new changes coming down the JL line. Any rumors/hushed whispers/bathroom stall drawings...floating around about all that?


This could be its own thread but I figure the 2016 thread is my first stop and usually AA's as well. Plus this is about the time of year the current year thread starts to go dead.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Only info we've heard on the JL is that it doesn't disappoint in the looks department. Ive talked to a few people who claim to have seen them. We're concerned with how the jobs will shake out. Who will wind up where.

I don't think they are worried about the JL not selling. I think its more that they know they have a cash cow in the JK. If they can still sell them, they'll keep building them. I think they learned that lesson when they killed the XJ in favor of the KL. They could have kept building the XJ.

It would be nice if they built them down the road in Belvidere but I hear that's where the Cherokee is going. I'm considering the JL as my next car given they make some creature comforts option-able.

Production of Sarge ends July 3rd, I don't believe it will be returning but can't say for sure at this time.

Thanks for the highlighter pic Archer!

Any luck with an outdoor pic yet?

I'm very, very tempted to get my order in tomorrow!
