I would guess a decent amount would be changed. Many states have lift height, fender width, and bumper laws. Stubby bumpers for example, are illegal in many states. I don't see Jeep putting out a vehicle that doesn't meet all state standards.

I don't know if this relates, but Mopar now sells the 10A/X/HR/75A front bumper in its stubby form, with the side extensions being an extra, separate, purchase.

Quick question for you guys. I placed my order for a 17 Sahara with my dealer on Friday morning. When I left he said "you're order should be entered in about an hour or so". So, does that mean I should be able to call him this morning and get my VON? Is there any other way I can get that info?

He will have your VON. Send it to Milous and you will be good to go with tracking.

My 75th Anniversary Jeep Wrangler came in yesterday!

Well I can wish, can't I? Actually a 75th anniversary die-cast came in yesterday and some other goodies a few days previously. (Just testing to see if I can figure out how to add an image)

My 75th Anniversary Jeep was ordered on August 13th and as far as I know it is still supposed to be built the week of 9/26...

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I just ordered a 2017 jku Willy's wheeler w. I liked the wheels that came on the 16's but just found on this site that they aren't shown on the list of wheels for the 17's. did they change the wheels for the 17 Willy's? If so, which wheel is it? That would be kind of a bummer for me because the wheels were one of the reasons I went with the Willy's. probably would be able to find some of the wheels that came on the 16 I guess. Anyone recommend a place to look if they did change them?
