re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Checking in! I told myself I would just let it be and let it get here when it gets here but I couldn't stay away. Long time TJ / JK sport owner, sucked it up and saved for a year while driving a little Honda to be able to buy a Rubicon, I've always wanted one.

Placed order on March 5 it seems a few of you also ordered right around then so we can suffer together! Ordered a Rubicon Unlimited, premium soft top, Rhino, 4.10s, Leather, Tow Package and 430N.

Haven't received a VON yet. Touched base with the dealer since its been a week, awaiting what they say then hopefully once I have that I can upgrade my membership here and start tracking. Cheers to you all and here's to sooner rather than later!

I have a dumb question, what is the difference between max tow and non-max tow?

When I ordered my Sahara 75th AE if I clicked on details, max tow had a little blurb about the 3.73 Axle Ratio and that was it (FWIW I had already upgraded the axle to the 3.73 from the 3.21). Is there a difference and do you get anything extra by ordering Max Tow?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

My experience when I ordered a 2012 with the Max tow was as you mentioned the 3.73 gears are standard, a pre-wired harness with the hitch that's plug and play with most trailers right out of the gate. I know at one time there was also a transmission cooler with the max tow, don't know if they are still doing that though. I only tow small trailers so that's why I got it. Maybe someone else has a better answer...

Originally ordered Dark Saddle Interior until I saw pictures of it on new 75th AE's and the color was lighter than expected and was only on the car seats and did not include the console or dash like the illustration on the Jeep.com ordering pages.
I'm right there with you on the saddle interior! I loved the idea of the 75th Anniversary edition, but seeing the interior it was just too light for my taste, can't wait to see it though hopefully you'll post pics when you get her!

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Quick question for everyone that is waiting or HAS been through the ordering. How long did it take you to receive a confirmation email from Jeep. I ordered on 3/5 and still nothing. I know the dealer has my email address because I get the usual "thank you for your visit" emails from them after I placed the order but still nothing from Jeep saying that they received the order...makes me wonder if the dealer even put the order in yet...

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Hello everyone. I am a newbie as of yesterday. I became a member because I knew I would be able to get excellent, reliable information about my 2016 JK (when it arrives). I live in Honolulu Hawaii and ordered a Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hardrock Granite Crystal from a local dealer on Jan. 7. I waited a whole month for somekinda communication, email etc. from the dealer with an update, or a thank you or something to no avail. I finally went down and spoke to my salesperson. He was able to pull up info on my vehicle from the dealer accessible website which included my VIN and VON and indicated an ETA of Mar. 25th to Mar. 31st. He also said that I could access tracking info on the Chrysler website myself using the VON. After countless searches and attempts I found out that the VOTS site has been down for IDK, a year?? I stumbled upon this forum during one of my aimless searches and thought, FINALLY, some real support! Anyway I PMed Scottina06 last night and am awaiting a reply.

Yup it's been 3 months....During this period my range of emotions have gone from elation to excitement to doubt to depression to anger and to finally acceptance, much like waiting to die from some strange disease. I wish there was more communication from the dealer, something to make this waiting for the end more bearable. Oh well, just 2 more weeks hopefully. 2 more weeks and it'll be all over...I'll be in heaven driving my new JK. Yes, this waiting makes you delirious. I am hoping Scottina06 gets back to me with some good news like, "its coming tomorrow, you're saved" hahaha. Good luck to all of you waiting for your vehicle, hang in there!

Have you used the chat on Jeep's website and asked them for a status? You will need your VIN.

It's the same color brown, I traded in my Sahara with saddle for a 75th with saddle....

Sorry for the sideways pictures. I don't know how to correct it.
