Why do you think we'll see one tomorrow?

I figured with the sales launch tomorrow there might be a picture on the new press guide or on the website. Can you PLEASE tell me anything you remember about it? Specifically on whether the low and mid gloss looks bad with tank or if the interior has any special designs like previous editions? ANY info on the BBE would be great. you guys are awesome

Tomorrow is supposed to be Sales Launch.
I think many are assuming they'll be able to see a Black Bear on Jeep.com.

Excited to be a part of this forum. Ordered a JK Hard Rock 08/11 as part of a buyback process for my 2013 JK Rubicon; VIN assigned 08/17.

Not sure if this is the correct place to ask but is there a forum for buyback? I tried searching but with no avail. Inputs from anyone going through a buyback will be greatly appreciated!

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I emailed my dealer last night and I receive the normal response(none). The dealer has provided no information since I gave him a deposit. Jeep did however tell me that I was scheduled to be built today, 8/31. I live in northern NJ. I'm guessing at a delivery time between 9/21 and 9/30. Does that sound reasonable?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Okay, I was anxious to order Rubicon Hard Rock, as I mentioned in earlier post I am a retired dealer, and today I was told to hold off. (by Someone up there in corporate) All I was told is that there will be a Rubicon Recon Ltd edition and secondly that there will be a anniversary edition which will be different. No other details except they will be coming soon. Back to the waiting game. But I did ask if it was remotely possible that next year would bring a Hellcat Hemi Wrangler and all I got was a chuckle

Thanks Hollywood.... that kind of info is always appreciated. Some here have mentioned hearing of more special editions to come. And yeah, I can see where you'd hear a laugh re a Hemi wrangler lol.

When we ordered my wife's 2013, I got an email from Jeep claiming the Jeep would arrive in exactly one week, on a Thursday. The next night I got a call from the dealer saying that the truck rolled into the lot as he was leaving for home, and our Jeep would be ready in the morning...so we picked it up on Saturday...several days before the tracking system claimed it would even arrive.

Hey thanks for responding...I have no idea only that I was told the guy that said Sept 8 is very knowledgeable maybe even works there?

BTW Is there a way to track my 2016 Wrangler Sport ...I am in Canada, Toronto, I have a VON only, no VIN, I have the work sheet, order was put in July 9th at Midnight though I made the original offer and deposit way back in Mid May for a 15, it was bumped to the 16 because they could not fill the order.

Yes I have read that there is a way to track a order, but I wonder if that can be done from Toronto? I dont have any idea were the Jeep is even coming from _

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

There was a red jeep with a black grill and a topo map on the hood in the brochure at my jeep dealer last Thursday. Was that a BBE or was there another model that had a topo map on the hood?

By the way, I ordered a 2016 Wrangler Unlimited in Billet Silver, manual transmission, 3.73 rear, connectivity, 430 radio. They think I'll get it in 3-4 weeks, didn't get a VON, but they said I dhould get a VIN in about a week. I had a 75 cj5 in college and a 1980 cj5 in my 20's. Age 37 now, hoping this JKU will scratch my itch.
