So this information was given to me incorrectly by the individual I called. Chief will not be available to order til December.

@pcbeachbum no luck on the fog lights part number. It's not on the sticker on the back of them. I'll keep digging.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Getting tired of waiting on release of Gobi so I think I may go order a GCM JKU tomorrow. Does anyone know if the max tow package has different springs and shocks?
I know it comes with the 3.73 gear and hitch.
Thanks

Did you specifically ask when the projected date is for inclusion in order banks?
Because that is not the answer I and others from WF got. We consistently got "November" or "late November." My call we even discussed build schedule, they said projected on order banks November, building December, delivery possibly mid December possibly early Jan due to holidays. The guy was pretty knowledgeable since he knew the opening of order dates and what that meant for build dates for other colors the past few years.

The email I got from a different department had the same info.

I would wait to check with a couple of dealers before being certain it is order banks now.

There are 5 different part numbers, some of which represent sets (L+R) and some that show different part numbers for L and R sides. I can sort through the info in the next day or to if there is interest. Some will be difficult to buy for awhile as parts are constrained this early on.

There is also a bracket listed, not sure if this would be required for a retro-fit. It's not clear if bulbs are included. A quick look shows that it could cost over $500 MSRP for lamps, bulbs and brackets. Some part numbers add up to less, not sure why.

I was doing some digging the other day and came across some MOPAR p/ns for the fog lights. I think the bracket may be to adapt them to a HR/10AS/75th style bumper.

No, it doesn't. The springs are based on the weight of your vehicle, factoring in all the options you chose (a hardtop makes a significant difference, for example). Shocks are dependent on the model you picked (Willys and Rubicons get the shocks of the Performance Suspension, for example).
