I guess they could be worse.

From the IIHS headlight small SUV/Crossover report:

"The worst headlights among the small SUVs belong to a different Honda -- the new-for-2016 HR-V. The illumination provided by the HR-V's halogen low beams and high beams is inadequate on all four curves and on the straightaway. The HR-V is one of 12 small SUVs that can't be purchased with anything other than poor-rated headlights."

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

seems odd if Jeep created a new 7" round LED for the last year of the JK. I suspect this is tech being pulled forward from the JL.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I am planning to order a Willys edition. Is it a safe bet that Willys will be available for 2017, or, should I sneak in a order for a 2016?

I am well sir. Popping in here every now then to make sure there isn't something I am missing that I just have to have. Expecting a baby girl the end of Aug so I have a feeling my mod budget is about to fall off a cliff.

Think the interior lights will be next on my list after the fog lights, replaced my tail lights but those were much more about aesthetics rather that function.

Interesting to hear the pilots aren't the JW rebadge speakers that Mopar sells.

Are they more the Truck Lite style?

It was mentioned before... too popular of a trim to not bring them back.

I will give them a call before to see how close they come to Koons pricing. Sorry for the long delay but a storm last week knocked out our internet. I want a wild color. Orange would be first choice, followed by hypergreen and last would be red. My order will go in sometime between November and 1st of Jan.
In no rush, and no trade in so I am golden so to speak.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Are you calling this acid yellow or is this the name given to it as a concept car?

I hope the new yellow is nowhere near this bleached looking. Looks like a proper yellow that sat in the sun too long. Kinda like how Rock Lobster was to red.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Any idea how much the price increase will be for 2017? Trying to do decide if I should order now before the window closes, or wait a month and pay the price increase for the 2017's.
