That would be a really good guess. Also "Willys" tag on the wheels.

Pic quality is poor, but it's all I have. Same wheel style for Chief and Recon. Chief will use a silver metallic finish while Recon will be granite color.

Kind of retro looking. Should go well with everything else we've heard re the Chief.

Thanks, Milous!

Seems like a good looking wheel. Do you know if it will be a solid color or machined accents like the current wheels?

Will the Recon variant have the "Willy's" tag too?

Will the granite color be used elsewhere on the Recon?

Thanks again for all the info.

Will the Recon variant have the "Willy's" tag too? On the wheels, yes

Will the granite color be used elsewhere on the Recon? Yes, bumpers and background of badges. The grille will be black with granite rings.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Will there be an official launch for Recon and Chief edition at the SEMA Show in November ?

For all those that inquired about the amaretto leather and sound package, finally found pics. It's definitely the same as the Red Rock.

No info on any of the reveal dates. Freedom and Sahara winter editions are the next to launch so I would think those would be revealed first.

Winters are running now.

No new colors have been sprayed yet. AFAIK

You had indicated it was about four weeks between test spraying and "release" for new colors. Does "release" mean production or ordering?

For example the answer I have from FCA is: "the exterior paint color Gobi is expected to be available for factory order for the 2017 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited in November, 2016 for start of production in December, 2016 and on dealer lots in January, 2017."

Assuming hypothetically they mean mid month for each, would you expect to see:
a) the test paint Gobi done Oct 15 -- two months before production and one month before appearing on order bank; or
b) test paint Gobi done Nov 15 -- one month before you see regular production of the color on the production line?

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread
