Don't they need at least a few 2016's to be at the dealers, to support the September 1 sales launch?

No. Grand Cherokee/Durango launch is not until late November yet the sales/press launch is also September 1st.

My order is placed! Hopefully they actually give me the VON when it assigns so I can get it to Milous for tracking! Hopefully the Jeep is waiting for me when I get back to the states!

The leather-trimmed bucket seats are an optional upgrade for a base Rubicon (W/2_R) for $1350. The Rubicon Hard Rock is a special Limited Edition (W/2_J) that comes standard with the leather-trimmed bucket seats, and downgrading from the package standard equipment is probably not possible.

Now, the 2016 order guide doesn't say explicitly that you can't get the cloth seats, but it is implied that you would be unable to downgrade. Is it impossible...sometimes dealers can make things like this happen...never hurts to ask. But when the Sales Launch hits in September and Build and Price goes live for 2016MY on Jeep.com, you will likely be unable to select cloth seats for the Hard Rock, and it won't be listed as an option in the 2016 Sales Brochure.

NukeNerd, I ordered my Hard Rock today and the guy who does the ordering at the dealer told me you CAN get cloth seats with the Hard Rock. I watched his screen as he was able to select them with the Hard Rock package.

I am anxious to see if your Hard Rock actually shows up with cloth seats. I am of the mind that eventually your order will be kicked back due to the cloth seats being selected.

I didn't order the cloth. I just had him select it so I could see.
