Or throw in an eco diesel and lift for good measure

This was not installed by the dealer. It was a factory option. MSRP was $895.

Hey Milous,
2 door and 4 door versions of Chief Pkg?
I think there is some confusion here, over Milous's hints about the Chief and hints about the Recon.

Agreed, those red appointments are Recon as it replaces HR. I don't think they would even coordinate well with chief edition colors (body color, white stripe and silver to evoke chrome). the chief seems to be a decidedly retro 60's look. And very well done at that.

On the subject of recon and use of red to follow up on hardrock red, to me, 'recon", having done a bit myself, gives me the expectation of hidden capability and subdued visuals. My own personal preference for recon colors would be FDE and OD Green!

I'm with you on this. Would prefer a Recon in Moab or Tank, maybe Rhino, without any exterior red accents.. Part of hates to say it, but I'll probably end up ordering a Hard Rock or Recon and taking rattle-can black to the tow hooks etc. Hope the "red seatbelt" as mentioned ins't too over the top..

I noticed the same... so much info all at one time everything got kind of balled up together.
Re the Chief Edition has anything even been mentioned regarding the interior? The concept vehicle had a cool looking white interior.... minus the pink flowers of course.

Thank you! I wonder if dealer will offer this option as well after the fact for our 2016 Rubi.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Milous, when you say in the first post that a special edition such as the Freedom Edition will run from "December to February" does that mean it will first be orderable in December? Or is that when it's planned to go in to production?

If that is the planned production start date can you give me an idea of how far in advance to expect to be able to place an order? I'm not actually interested in the Freedom Edition just using it as an example and I am aware that none of these dates are set in stone!

Thanks!

You can order that now through the dealer and have it installed... with or without the larger tire mount and brake light relocating kit.

The rear door closes and opens much more solid with this heavy duty bracket.
