Speaking of that, what do each of you do at the factory?

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.
How long can a headliner slow it down compared to an order without a headliner? I'm debating whether or not to order it with or just order it without and install it myself later on.

I do absolutely nothing . I don't work at the plant, nor for FCA. I'm just a fellow Jeep enthusiast who enjoys helping out other Jeep enthusiasts .

I put stickers on hoods. And other stuff...

Since we don't do it, I have no idea how long the headliner takes to install.

Hmmm, *maybe* someone could 'bribe' archer to punch a couple of buttons on the line computer to program a few canada models ahead of the u.s. Ones :d.
no! Lol

Black Bear has nothing to do with Jeep color and everything to do with one of the most famous trails in Colorado. Sooo, this is a name that is in line with Rubicon and Moab and Sahara.

Golden Bear? No. Eagle, yes

I'm thinking the new premium tan soft top may go good with my Tank and saddle interior JKUR.

Milous, would it be to late to add an option to my order now that i am in D1? Also would it change the production and delivery dates?

Thanks

I get that, but just about every thing in the interior is black, they put a premium soft top on it because that is a deeper black.
They have added lots of black on the exterior as well. So i dont think you could add a tan top. Matter of fact i know you cant add a tan top, wasn't listed as an option when i ordered mine. As far as the golden bear it was just a comment regarding bear editions.
