re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Well guys, I just put my order in for my new '17 Sahara this afternoon. I'm both nervous and excited. First time Jeep owner (chrylers even for that matter). I ordered a 2 door black Sahara. Options include:

  • auto trans
  • 3.73 gears
  • trac loc differential
  • remote start
  • block heater
  • leather seats
  • connectivity package
  • 430n radio
  • alpine stereo
  • freedom top
  • side bolster airbags
It came in pretty spendy but oh well, like the kids say. YOLO.

I haven't a clue as to when it'll show up but I think I'm going to partake in the tracking system on this site and donate.

One last question, does anyone know what comes standard with the sahara? Will it have floor mats of any kind? A bag to store the freedom top? Is there a mat for the back that goes over the subwoofer? I'm just wondering what accessories come with it that will be in plastic wrap.

Well said. I hope the actual hue is a bit darker in person but it still looks pretty good. Better than all the gray variants offered. Go build and price an Audi if you want to see a company that pushes half a dozen variants.

Disappointed the brochure has no Acid Yellow in it. Will late availability mean no availability?

The late availability is killing me. I thought i would order a GCM last week but now think Gobi looks good on the brochure....but have no idea when it will be available.

To those comparing the interior photos 2016 to 2017. Notice that the red painted areas are much darker also. I think it's likely just a piss-poor photo. Talking about the one looking head on into the dash.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I'm wondering if it's mostly Unlimiteds are first then start blending in 2-doors. And if Rubicons and Rubicon Hard Rocks are short run limited builds?

Not sure what short run limited means but shipment date on my 17 GC Rubi HR has changed from 9/28 to 9/30.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Where I used to work we built 4-wheel transfer case systems for the big 3. Every so often we would change over for a short limited run of 50-100 transfer cases. One that comes to mind was the Lincoln Aviator. Never built alot of those at one time. Single speed transfer case. I figured Rubicons and the Hard Rock editions/models might be the same way.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I know I would love to see my Hypergreen JK Rubicon Hard Rock come down the assembly line from start to finish. I remember the few times at Ford assembly plants to address's issues or concerns. The process is so phenomenal and amazing. Never got old. I was like a kid in a candy store! It would let people understand the complexity involved in assembling a vehicle. From a whole lot of loose parts and pieces to a completed vehicle that is started and driven off the end.
