Same as the 2016 models:

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Will any of the colors we are still waiting to see be available with the Willys package? Like chief blue or acid yellow?

Yes but acid chief and gobi just say (late availability) with Milous's last update. I wasn't sure if that meant the details of which packages they would be on was still unknown

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I also had a couple of questions on what "late availability" means. I've read here that the Rubicon Hard Rock will stop production in January. Will it ever be possible to get a HR in the new Chief color? Also curious if there will be a point in time where the new Rubicon Special Edition specs are listed and that model is available, but you could also still order a Hard Rock. Thanks to everyone for all the great info here!

Another question for the forum....

Does anyone know how long it takes to build a Wrangler on the assembly line in Toledo?

2017s should begin manufacturing today!

I love the look of the wheels and tires on the Willys as well as half door look or in the case of this photo...no doors. A Firecracker Red Willys with half doors was my second choice when I ordered my 2017. It just says...OUTDOORS!

I'm glad you asked that question. I'm planning on ordering a 2017 jku Willy's Wheeler W in a couple of months. It was the wheels and black grill that melted my butter! Hey, Hawkeye, what color did you order?

Interesting question. I asked Jeep Chat the same thing out of mere curiosity and it just about puked on itself. (I say itself, because if it is real people they have a very limited response menu they are required to follow.)

On the other hand it would deny many numbers of folks following the thread the multi page spreadsheets calculating vehicles per hour, minutes per day, feet per minute of line speed, estimated length of line, etc.

There was a post of an estimated 900 vehicles per day, so let the calculations begin ;o)

Once started, less than a day.

I went to bed in D1, and woke up the next morning in KZ. BTW, it stayed in KZ until I drove it home from the dealer.

No one knows those kind of answers. Its like asking for next week's winning PowerBall numbers.
