Milous, it sounds like you have seen the chief edition, or at least renderings. Any opinion on how it looks? Did they pull it off correctly? I'm especially curious as to whether they put chrome bumpers on it and how a wrangler looks with them.

LOL, okay now I'm afraid to ask about the interior, but I can't help myself. Black leather like Hard Rock, or something special edition for the Recon?

Would love if they have a choice of amaretto with the black dash like on red rock.

I was hoping for a metallic gold dash, to tone down the bling a bit.

Picked up my fully loaded 2017 Hard Rock last night. It is sweet. Also got the swing gate reinforcement option with oversized tire carrier. Very cool. It also relocated the 3rd taillight to the center of the spare tire (monunted on the bolts). Here are some pics in case anyone is on the fence about adding it as an option.

I ordered the reinforced swingate and oversized carrier too so it's good to see these pics, thanks. The reinforced swingate looks like the teraflex system which is good. That 3rd brakelight though, I'm not sure I like it. It mounts with the spare tire lug nuts? Is it wired or wireless?
Actually more I look at it it doesn't look bad. Might grow in me some more. LEDs in there it appears.

I didn't inspect it too much, but there is a cable that runs from the light and goes through the spare tire. I did not look to see where it goes. I can check later and try to take more pics.

It's looks really nice. No chrome bumpers, silver is used a lot - center bumper trim is silver metallic, as are the grille rings, mirror caps and badges.
