re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So finally did my test drive last night on the Sahara. Regional search (1000+ miles) revealed my exact desire not avail. Now impatiently waiting on '17 info....other vehix have theirs out...what gives? ready to order.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Ok, I'll kick the last few pieces of the dead horse... But in a serious way..

Does anyone know why it's taking a little longer for CONFIRMED color information this year vs last year?? I realize that you can do the "reverse" lookup of colors or reference the previous pages. But, I only trust the MAIN source of information.

Basically, I'm asking if anyone knows if something is different with production this year?? Just curious.

My refresh button is taking a beating like the rest of yours...

I think Milous's hands are bit tided until its officially released. Once that happens, I am sure he'll share his info within a few nanoseconds.

I would hope that the color doc from FCA is pretty close to be official. The only thing it might not reflect, is any last minute changes. Something like at the last minute, they rename "Gobi" to "Turd" or something.

I still don't understand why we can't spec any body color for the hardtop. Yea, I realize that this would open up the need for all kinds of new restrictions/limitations on combinations, like you can't order a Tank top (pun?) on an Xtreme Purple body.

But they could allow (gloss) black, white, and Mojave without getting into deep trouble.

Turd Ferguson...That's a funny name. I'd actually consider one with turd as the color. I think a good brown would look good.

Agreed - kind of odd. I see all white JKUs around here.

But, given we never saw the initially predicted tan soft top...

So, what I'm taking away from this is that I should stop holding my breath waiting for an orange and just pull the trigger?

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

From my understanding the order allocation is closed for 2016MY so, unless you are pulling the trigger on a vehix sitting on a lot it seems you're sitting in my boat (and many others) for the 2017MY release...

Jeep pulls color surprises throughout the model year. We will not know for sure if there will be an orange for '17, or not, until the '18 model year starts.
