re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Need advice please. When I do purchase my 2017 Willys, what do I need to treat the black plastic fender flares with to try and keep them black and not the sun bleached gray that I see so many of?

I was about to say how incredibly jealous I am (and then congratulate you, of course) but I decided to check the tracking on mine first. It went D1 yesterday!! Woo!

So, congrats, Green, and everyone else who went D1 in that batch!

Nah.... haha, I only referred to Str8nr as a "Jeeper" because of his helpful answer. Back in the age of dinosaurs when I belonged to an off road club "Jeeper" was used as a way of complimenting someone. The kind of person who would let you borrow their spare out on the trails or winch you out of a bog and not try to charge you 20 bucks. That guy is a real Jeeper... the highest form of flattery lol.
So tomorrow being Sept 1st... does that mean I can wander into my local friendly Jeep dealership and get me a purty, hot off the press 2017 Wrangler brochure?

Congrats to the D1s!

yes I know. I was driving a company 2007 JK in 2006 so I always think 06 instead of 07 because I had it early. Model years and calendar years have a significant shift. My last purchase was a 2015 forester in March of 2014 delivered in April of 2014.

I had my Kennedy Road 87 Wrangler, right from factory to rail yard to boat to Brussels in spring of 1986. My 1987 had 50K km (aobut 30,000 miles) by he end of 86. Drove it all over the Med basin in every country but Libya.

However, very generic info, that applies to all model years of the JK (or to most of those years) really belongs elsewhere. While miss-posting is excusable for a Newbie, someone who thinks of themselves are a "Jeeper" should know better.
Thanks Walt. I think some people confuse usage of less appropriate with "inappropriate behavior." One, my usage, has to do with appropriate=applicable -- applicability. And the other, which was not my usage at all, has to do with a criticism of behavior.

So look, I am chastised and I get it. I apologize for using a phrasing that could be misunderstood given today's usage of "inappropriate" to be virtually all about behavior criticism. And I should have pointed to sections or suggested opening that question separately.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Hey all, glad to hear some of you are already VIN numbers for your 2017 orders.
I placed an order on Friday morning, August 26. Ordered a Willys Wheeler JKU with the 23W package, reinforced swing gate and oversized tire carrier, 430 and Alpine Premium, LED light package and Mopar Electronic Vehicle Tracking. Billet Silver Metallic
I hadn't heard anything yet so I called the Jeep Customer Care line and gave them my VON and was told it's not showing up in their system yet, They told me to try back at the end of this week.
Do you normally find out via a email from Jeep, your dealer or by contacting them/ website etc?
I'll be relieved to at least hear they have the order come through.

My salesman checked the system and sent me an email with vin. Give him a call or shoot him an email asking to check it for you.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Question: For the 2017's there is an available Cold Weather group on the Sport S in which it includes an engine block heater...what is the purpose of this? Also, forgive me if this was asked already but I see there is heated seats, will that be with cloth seats that the Sport S has??

Thanks in advanced.
