So we're getting the Big Bear Edition the "C " Special Edition and a Winter Edition? Cool by me... just more to choose from.
My money is on "C" being the Chief Edition... hopefully they stay true to the concept vehicle... White top, retro mag wheels, white interior and that awesome blue color.

What about the "D"?

Bring back the Dragon ...said no one EVER!

Saw one in the wild a few days ago, that guy must have all kinds of self confidence.

From a distance it doesn't look half bad, but man up close some one needs

Any chance gobi could be that metallic brown that was the sundancer concept a few years back? That color was amazing

If you're ordering a 17, you'll want to upgrade to the LED headlights. But, I feel that proper headlights should be the first upgrade to any wrangler.
Read this, trust your opinion, got the itch, installed JW Speakers on the Rubi X this weekend, wife wants to know who to blame, I might hide if I were you

I never got the hate for the stock lights until I installed these and realized how inadequate the stock lights were. Also if you opt for this option on a dark color jeep your first mod has to be repainting the chrome retaining ring. It stuck out so bad I couldn't even take it for a test drive without pulling the grill and lights back out so I could flat black the retaining ring.

Real question that applies to the 2017... are the factory leds going to be the new model JW(and then rebranded mopar) that come with the half halo or are they going to be the old design JW(rebranded mopar that you can currently buy for $675). Going to be interesting to see what the option price is as well seeing you can the new JW's for $475 a pair right now.

B]YES I think you are on to some good guesses My personal favorites would be the staff car concept color and the Chief 715... My bet is if Gobi is either Africa or Command Car then Chief will be Blue-ish.

I hope Acid yellow is not that pale. If it is, I may well find out just how many miles a 3.6 will last!

I agree. I was hoping for a more saturated yellow. Like a highlighter yellow.

A few years back Dodge had a sharp color... matte finish Drone Yellow on the Rumble Bee.
Maybe they still have a few drums laying around that they have to use up?

Man if Chief is that blue and Gobi is the Africa or staff car concept I'll have a hard time deciding on color. Of course knowing my luck, I'd probably miss the order time for both.

Hey, PC! How ya been?

Most people don't realize how bad stock lights are yntil they upgrade. Then they want to upgrade all their lights. I've even switched my interior lights to LED.

The pilots that are running now do not have halos. I haven't seen mopars aftermarket led headlight to say if they are like the JWs

That is good news. I don't really care for the half circle halos.

Any of the pilots sporting a new color? Care to comment/share a pic?

No new colors yet. I don't see them until a month or so before they are released
