I was not putting you, nor Star, down, but I am really baffled by a dealer who said they successfully placed an order for a 2016 in Granite, back in July.

I really hope Star's Wrangler shows up in Granite in only a few more weeks.

Long story short, I'm going through a buyback with Chrysler/FCA on my 12' wrangler. When I ordered my 16', I went with white because my dealer said Granite wasn't avaliable through their systems to order it. After I ordered, I contacted a chrysler rep that I had been dealing with and asked if I could change the color to granite. He said he would find out and get back to me. He told me that it went through and they were able to change it! So I guess I will see! I'll keep you guys posted with whatever else I hear.

Rubicon Recon will be a 2016. IMO, they should drop Rubi from the name and create a new model, just the Wrangler Recon and spin it into the JL...much like the Rubicon and Sahara before that. Create a new range topper.

Can't argue with that... sounds cool. Wrangler Recon definitely has a ring to it. Hate to see the price tag on it though... ouch!

Wonder how many people that ordered the Rubicon will have the OH SHIT look when that model is released. Jeep will just make more jeeps!

So is this Recon edition the one that debuted in 2013? Where are you guys getting specs or seeing photos for it?

That is what I am assuming at this point. Possibly, one of those websites that likes to recycle old news, ran a "new" story about that old, show-only, Recon model. You know, the same websites that are still claiming that the all-new Wrangler will debut as a 2016 model.
