The JK's vehicle systems is totally different and incompatible. Waiting to see if that changes for the JL.

They can't get in there if you properly fit your tin foil hat.

CarPlay would have been nice but not surprised it's waiting for the JL.

Haha, yep that's the one. Yeah I figured it still wasn't possible, but thought I'd throw it out there.

Thanks, Milous. That's what I figured. Surprised Jeep hasn't come up with a uConnect access system for the Wrangler over the last few years. In all honesty, it might be the best system out there. Seems weird that they never added it to their flagship vehicle.

The JL will have the all-new 8.4" UConnect radios. Higher resolution, improved speed and graphics, pinch/swipe/tap.

Where can I order my MOPAR tin foil hat? I don't want to be taken over by North Kor-ia...

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I'd love it if Acid Yellow was similar to Velocity Yellow Tint coat on the Corvette. I really liked the Baja yellow of my 2015 JKR and it still pisses me off I had to sell the thing and lose 10k because Chrysler could not fix the hands free functionality. Long story I won't get into here.

However as much as I liked the Baja Yellow, I think the Velocity Yellow of the Corvette is just a little less saturated and makes for a brighter color. I am worried Acid Yellow will be to Baja what Rock Lobster was to red. I actually grew to like Rock Lobster as it was a totally unique color.

If I stupidly give Chrysler another chance on a Wrangler it will be either Acid Yellow, Chief or white which always works for me. I am not in a huge hurry to buy so I'll wait to see what Acid and Chief look like before I commit.

Is Pat still around? I just started checking out some info on here again, looking to buy a 2017 wrangler. Most of the info in years past was compiled by Milous/Pat, and Pat hasn't posted for several years. Just wondering

Pat is at a different dealership now and doesn't have as much time to post. I still keep in contact with him.

Thanks for the update on Pat, Milous...have you heard anything about the possibility of a Willys Wheeler return for 2017?

No 100% confirmation, but I expect it will be back.

I saw that the "B" and "C" special editions will be late avail. Any data on color availability yet? Any predictions of when chips of the new ones might appear?

Thanks as always. Happy Independence Day!
