re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

This thread started out as a great way to find out and share info on the 2017 JK. it seems like it has gone downhill and now is a thread to share order info. Maybe that should be a different thread?

I agree. Its about time our gods created a "2017 Waiting Room" thread.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I called a dealership yesterday to put an order in for a Hyper Green wrangler. I've been told that the color has been discontinued but the first page of this thread says otherwise. Which is true?

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I too was sorry to see the Hydro Blue go. The options seem to be a couple of colors which I am not interested in and half a dozen shades of black. I decided on the neutral silver for my 2017 with the intent of painting it Hydro Blue at 10 years. (The 2017 replaces a 2000 which I retired after 225,000 miles)

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I, personally am enjoying the mix of new information mixed with people posting about their ordered Wranglers. Of course, I am one of them so maybe I am bias.

I was so excited reading about some members vehicles being built that I had to contact FCA last night even though they told me to contact them again on the first week of October. My status remains "Gateline Schedule" with build timing the week of 9/26 and was told to contact them again on 10/3 for an update.

It appears 2017 production is moving along this week and things are still on schedule...

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Heads Up! Just checked the Jeep website and when you go to Build & Price and change the year to 2017, it lets you build a 2017. Unfortunately, it still shows the "lame" choices of colors available right now.

Nope, I think you maybe right. Looks like Recon Green and Sarge Green are very similar. Good Looking Jeep non the less!

I've seen Recon in person, and it appears much lighter than that in normal light. Guess it's the lighting that makes it look black in that pic. I prefer Sarge over Recon, personally.
