Typo on my part, seeing 10/26 on a GCM order gives me hope, but having not seen any of them move from D1 yet dashes all my new found joy.

On the plus side, I can rest easy knowing that the wait is worth it since I did order a combination that I haven't seen on lots and none of the dealers could track down, so it will be nice to get exactly what I wanted with none of what I didn't. Until then though, Tink, I'm gonna need some of that Prozac whenever you acquire some.

If I recall correctly, the new model year ones started progressing out of D1 a week before the originally reported production start date. Some people were having similar experiences as we are seeing with GCM, showing estimated deliveries on (or in their case, even before) the originally reported production start date. So, if that happens again here, then we might see some GCM Jeeps heading through the line next week. Fingers crossed!

Congrats!!!!!!!! UHR, but what options color?????

Hope your patience tolerance is much higher than mine. Wife and friends ready to commit me when my 14 finally got to dealer. Hoping to handle it better this time.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Tink's reply above got me to thinking I never posted my config. For anyone interested, here's what I have coming:

2016 Rubicon Hard Rock
Granite Crystal Metallic
Automatic
Add 4.10 Axle Ratio (still a bit irritated I have to pay to get something back that is on there if you go with manual)
Air Conditioning w/ Auto Temp
Dual Top
Remote Start
Supplemental Front Seat Side Air Bags

Planned Mods - more to come later I'm sure, but this is what I'm doing right away

Pioneer AVIC stereo setup with backup camera (don't know model no. yet)
LED headlights (probably JW Speaker or Trucklites)
Gas cap cover
Hood lock

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Cool, thanks Croq.

Got to admit My Ace sliders are moving from the 14 to the 16 and I've already got my winch and front bumpers mods scoped out. Going with the Maximus stinger and a Warn 10-S Platinum.

So here's a question, why auto?? My 14 is a 6spd and the HR I've ordered is also. I admit the 14 took some getting used to but now I just love it. I've driven a 3 spd CJ5 and 3 & 4 spd 3/4 ton pickups. I'll say driving the Unlimited quite often feels like driving those big pickups but still I love it!!! So does the wife (her one gripe with her new XC60 is that it can only be had in and auto.) I love rowing the gears, we've got 5 road worthy vehicles and until the 60 all were manual. The 6th is also a manual sitting in the back of the garage waiting for some love. Yeah 3 are little british sports cars but still, I've always had a thing for a standard tranny. One of my biggest disappointments right now is the lack of standards in pickups......

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

I went with automatic because my Wrangler is also going to be my daily driver. After way too many years stuck in traffic, easing out the clutch to go 2 miles an hour for 20 feet or less, then clutch back in and stop (repeat many times over on bad days), I have had enough. With an automatic, I let off the brake, maybe go that same 20 feet or less, then I press the brake again.

It may suck when I go out on trails (I've read people preferring both though for different reasons), but given that I'm gonna be stuck in traffic much more often than I'll be out on a trail, the auto seemed to make sense.

Ok, I'll admit the only time I'm lees than pleased with the standard is in real traffic, but then a traffic jam here is 4 cars in line.......

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

the problem waiting is the wish list keeps building for when it arrives. This will be my weekend toy so i went basic so can build to my liking.

D1 status for my GCM JKU Sport, Auto, 3:73 gears with max tow, Alpine 9 speaker, premium soft top, Anti spin diff.

Mods that are currently collecting dust in the garage waiting for arrival;

TeraFlex - 3" susp with 4 control arms, monster track bar, steering stabilizer, adjustable tire carrier.
5 Mickey Thompson MTZ on Fuel Coupler -D556
Bilstein 5100 shocks
AEV Pro Cal
Quadratec LED Headlight & Fog lights (reviews good and already spent to much $$)
Rock Hard 4x4 Patriot series tube slider rocker guards
Locking gas cap
entry guards
quick release mirrors
**Front and rear bumpers in the works**

Jeeps are far worse than a Harley. Its like crack you just keep wanting to add to it.

Hello All,
Just ordered my third Wrangler on 10/9. This will be my first hard top, which will be nice up here in Maine. Ordered a black 16 JKUS.
