re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I hate to say because I haven't seen it outside yet. Jeeps colors change depending on the lighting. But if I had to make a call, and you can't hold me to it, I'd say it's more yellow than green

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Archer,

Isn't it just the same paint they used on the Dodge Dart, the "Citrus Peel??

I believe its similar to the Stinger Yellow that turned into Baja Yellow. Or do they make slight variations to the paint, making it actually a "unique" color.

Milous, you have 2 cents on this one? Or any other experts for that matter..

Thanks!

I was really asking about the one on the hauler heading down the highway. Thanks.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Need to ask some knowledgeable forum members for their insight.

Background on me: I'm a new forum member, first post. Previous 1979 CJ7 owner in the late 80s/early 90s and then 1989 YJ owner in the mid 90s. I'm now looking to rejoin the jeep family (its been far too long!) and order a loaded 2016 JKU Backcountry in GCM with rear locker. And yes, those Backcountry stickers will be removed once I take possession!

I see based on Milous' first post to start this thread that the order banks close on 4-15-16 for 2016 Wranglers and that 2016 production stops on 4-30-16. Does this mean that I can still order my Backcountry from the factory as long as the order is placed no later than 4-15-16?

Reason I ask is because a dealer in Glenview, IL just told me that, "You can't order anymore Backcountry they are all done for the year" and recommended that I order a 75th Anniversary in GCM from the factory instead.

Did I truly miss my window to order the Backcountry with my desired specs?

Thanks in advance to those who can help clarify for me. Any insight that you can offer is much appreciated!

(BTW, I tried to reach out to Pat at Field Auto after seeing his name mentioned in so many threads. Wanted to give my business to a fellow forum member but Pat is no longer there. Got this guy instead.)

While production for BC models continues through this month, ordering has been closed for awhile now, the vehicles they are building are for ones ordered in February/early March.

Pat is at a new Jeep dealership, he can be reached at patrick@palmen.com.

Thanks for clarifying Milous. Didn't know the order window for the Backcountry (BC) would close sooner than the 4-15-16 window that was shared for all 2016 Wranglers.

Guess my only option at this time is to search all dealers off Jeep's website for existing inventory I can buy from that matches the exact specs I wanted to order on my BC from the factory.

Or...I can wait if you happen to know of another similar looking limited edition about to be released that will replace the BC with the same blacked out Jeep tags, interior with black accents and leather seats with the sport mesh fabric. The interior on the BC is very nice. Any news on that front that you can possibly share?

Also, the stock AEV bumpers on the BC were the other thing that was cool, but I can order those aftermarket from the 4WD or Quadratec catalog just the same.

Lastly, thanks for helping me track down Pat! I will reach out to him.

Depends where you live. Mine was 30 days from placing order to arriving at the dealer. Of course I'm close in metro Detroit. Good luck.

I'm trading my '14 wrangler. They let me keep and drive my current jeep until the order arrives. Most of the dealers around here were willing to do that if I put a little money down to hold the order. Some wanted to put mile restrictions on where I would agree not to go above a certain number of miles, which isn't unreasonable, but this one didn't.

I'm trying not to get my hopes too high for early delivery but I'd sure be happy if it did come early!

Thanks!
