I don't think making efforts to improve customer loyalty are peanuts. That's a pretty lame corporate attitude.

We bought a motor coach last year and custom ordered it from a national company that is a market leader in customer service. Tiffin...we had around the clock camera access to the assembly process. We even took a tour of the assembly line.

Jeep has a large cult like flowing just as Tiffin does. Good will towards loyal customers goes a long way...

Perhaps you are referring to half doors?
If that's the case, then the answer is no for the Black Bear Edition.
As others have indicated, both full and half doors are removable -- they have exterior hinges that allow for quick release.

Milous or ArcherAce - So has production on the 2016's started then? Several people have reported being in D1 status, some with projected delivery dates before or the same week of September 8.

If so, maybe they'll start up with Granite Crystal Metallic sooner too! I'm dying to make my order, determined to hold out for the color I want, but lately have been waning and thinking, "well, that color isn't bad". Still planning to hold out for GCM though at this point.

2016 startup is September 8th. FCA has a new tracking system and the projected dates are all over the place, some will no doubt change to a later date. No word yet on Granite order date, will probably be either September 10th, or early October.

New order guides were NOT released today. No sure when the next guide will be released.

Anticipation...it's making me wait. Killing me too. Holding out for Mojave Sand. I look at the other colors regularly and try to convince myself I like them just as much so I can go ahead and order. Still holding out as of this evening. It will be worth it.

Factory tour... shake hands with ArcherAce... share a beer with the test/quality people... a vending machine sandwich for lunch... and a Jeep leather keyfob as a souvenir. Priceless.

Lol, shaking hands with Archer would be cool... but they can keep the rest.

Would LOVE to buy you a beer my friend! Looks like you're busy as ever. I Couldn't justify trading in my 2014 on a 2015 just to get SO, so I kept my Flame Red one. Thought about a four door, but realized that model was not for me.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I've been trying to decide if the new Rhino color is worth waiting for until December. So far, I haven't seen anything besides a paint chip, so today I went to the automotive paint store to get an aerosol can of PSQ. I sprayed a couple of my homemade trail skins to get a better idea of the color. Much like Anvil and Tank, the Rhino color looks very different in different types of light and at different angles. I tried to capture that in the photos. Also, while I was taking pictures, I tried to make sure the image was as close as possible to what my eye was seeing. Anyway, for what it's worth, here are the results.
