re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Just found this forum. Lots of great info here! On Saturday 10/8 I ordered a 2017 Hard Rock. My wife and I compromised on Mojave Sand and found out in the order screen it wasnt offered. My dealer didnt have and info on the changes. Ive learned more here than it seems they know about the 17 line up. After reading here I see a Recon edition. I dont imagine any major difference from the HR especially in a change over year, but is there any info on the Recon?

Thanks,
-Shawn

2017 Wrangler Information Thread

Amaretto Leather & Mopar Premium Sound is Katzkin leather which is installed by a vendor outside of the factory before shipping from Toledo. The dark saddle plastic interior trim available by choosing the "dark saddle/black" interior in either leather or cloth will NOT match the amaretto Katzkin leather. You can choose the factory installed McKinley leather in dark saddle/black to achieve the look you posted above. If you opt for the amaretto leather package, be sure to select the black cloth interior.

If you opt for the amaretto leather, it should look like this:

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Has anybody seen a link to the Owner's Manual or User Guide for the 2017? Jeep.com only has the Grand Cherokee and SRT for download.

I've got the 2016 manuals and suppose there won't be major differences, but would still like a chance to memorize the 2017 ones while I wait for my JKUR to show up.

Thanks,
Mark

Having read through my 2017 manual, I can't imagine anything could have changed since the 2016. It doesn't even mention the LED headlights, for example.

Are you absolutely sure, that the color of the new-for-2017 Amaretto Leather&Sound package is identical to the leather used in your 2016 Red Rock?

I ask because we all know that the Black Leather&Sound package is actually grey.

Maybe try this? Don't know how long it will take to get, if they even have anything being that there are no PDF files yet.

+1

When you order the Leather&Sound Package, the interior color you pick affects only the dash and console. The color of the seats themselves, is based which Leather&Sound Package you choose; "black" gets you grey seats, and "ameratto" gets you something (still waiting to see an actual pic) seats.

No I'm not sure, I was going by what was posted earlier.

There's only one Katzkin Amaretto color - falls under the "Tuscany Special Materials" section.
