I haven't seen any new colors yet. As soon as they come down the line I'll let everyone know.

Since he's in a 6-speed configuration, it would be less than the full package, since it would be Minus at least one item;

- Remote Start System (Unavailable with some configurations)Check state and local laws regarding use of remote start systems.


I would be surprised that the difference would be $1500 for just remote start, but that's the very least of what would not be included on his package.

Also not sure if it would be that when it adds $xxxx for cold weather, it also triggers a delete $xxx+ for other features replaced.

In comparing the feature list, to me, it appears that this $2,395 Cold Weather package also includes the Power Convenience Group. At $1,595, that would seem to account for the $1,500 difference you note.

So for the money it sounds like it's definitely worth it.
Great tire upgrade... heated seats, etc.

Mine too. My JKU WW Rhino has been unloaded and sitting at the railhead since Monday. Ugh. 45 minutes away. 10 minutes from where I work.

Question on heated seats in cold weather group - is the passenger seat heated? I heard there was some limitation because of the airbag.

Interesting question. Everywhere heated seats are mentioned, they always use the plural, but never explicity say 'heated driver and passenger front seats.' However, a picture of the interior of the 2016 JK shows buttons for both, one on the far left, the other on the far right in the row of buttons next to the cigar lighter and below the ac controls.

After a little googling I think it only applies to one of the pads in aftermarket seat heaters, not factory. Would be nice to get a confirmation. Thanks.

Not sure about the Cold Weather pkg but my 2012 and 2016 Wrangler had heated seats both driver and passenger.

And if you get the option, both seats have the side air bags in them.
