Check with your dealer, but typically it's too late to make changes once in D1 status.

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.
I am anxiously waiting to see the interior on these. I hope it looks significantly different than a sport. the interior is the main reason I want the black bear, maybe the only reason cause I cant stand the black grill

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Milous, my dealer keeps telling me I'm a month away from getting my VIN number. I've been into another dealer here in Canada, and he says he can get me a VIN within a few days.

Do you have any idea why this is?

No chances of putting the regular "Rubicon" stickers on mine instead of the HRR specific ones, right? Forgetting them altogether? Black tow hooks would be fine as well. Oh well, a guy can dream. Just lovingly pat mine on the tailgate as it passes by then.

I could, but it would never make it past the inspectors on the certification line.

So, ArcherAce, another guy reported that he talked to a "supplier" that knows someone at the factory, and says that 2016 production has actually already started. I, of course, believe Milous' post about it starting 9/8, but just curious if anything changed recently.

No, it has not started. Milous's date is correct.

My personal guess is that generally dealers will lie, cheat, and steal to get your business... anything but put in an honest day's work

I got my VON four weeks ago this coming Friday - no VIN yet. Located in BC.

Out of curiosity - how many will come off the line on any given day? Depends on a lot of factors I know but ballpark? anyone know?

Or have to settle for untrained salespeople because those damn customers will not pay enough to allow them to hire better trained people.

Along those lines, he probably ran into a person who wasn't aware of the Wrangler MY start delays, and that 2016 Wranglers orders aren't being processed to get out VIN's quickly.
