Lol re PayPal. But, I think that would cost him his job, no cameras allowed in the factory, would be cool though.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

The headliner and katskinz leather can slow it down. They are both installed by a third party. I'm told that for some reason the topo hood Dinoc has to be installed by the same people that do the headliner and katskinz. It makes no sense since we are right there putting the Wrangler Dinoc on the side of the hood. Even the IEs don't know what that's about. Maybe that work will come back to us before to long. I status can also hold you up. I don't know if certain models that require specific parts slow down the build. The sourcing of parts happens long before they get to me.

Unfortunately photos are not allowed in the factory. I'd take them if I could.

So, $250K per pic would be around right?

You should route it up your chain of command as an opportunity for income. Think about it... Im sure there is SOMEWHERE in the line that has technology that isn't very sensitive or has already been photographed and published. Then Jeep just adds a $150 option when ordering to get a framed print of your specific Jeep on the line. Jeep makes ~15k+/- Wranglers in a year, right? Imagine if 10% of those orders selected the photo option? Just saying... you could get your name on a very successful VERY low initial cost program.

Photo for reference:

Kurt, that is a brilliant idea. I'm already approved to take pictures inside the plant, so it wuld be very easy to implement.

They'll never do it

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Great idea in theory. I think the major reason it won't get done is because it would take Toledo North Assembly Plant and Jeep to come to an agreement on it along with various liability issues that I am sure would not make the lawyers happy. Just too much red tape for what seems like a lot of money to all of us, but is peanuts on the corporate scale when they can just as easily not expose themselves to undue risk by taking pictures in the facility and needing to hire review staff and have review staff for the review staff etc.

Do you know if the Black Bear model will have removable doors as an option? Those seem to be available on very few models.

I've never seen a wrangler that didn't have removable doors...I'm about to purchase my 6th....

The only thing that will stop you from removing the doors is the condition of your back.
