While Mojave Sand and Hydro Blue are not listed as color choices in the 2017 configurator Hyper Green is. Looks like it is still an option!

Did Jeep catch us, and deactivated it? I can't get to the 2017 build page anymore.

If all this stands, the price of the HR went up less than the cost of the stand-alone LED light option (which will be std on the HR).

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I wonder what we'll see for a blue option for 2017? I can see going a year or two without orange, yellow or bright green but some sort of blue has to be offered.

Maybe Chief is the color some suspect will be that light blue seen with a white top. I don't know how they can call it "Chief." That would be like calling "Acid Yellow" simply "Acid." Tank and Commando never had green in their name but like Dune, the name is partially self explanatory. Now Chief can mean any number of things.

I hoping it's one of those situations like tank was for 2016. It carried over from 2015 for a bit before it was discontinued.

If not, some of the Gobi possibilities look pretty sharp. I'm rooting for the desert storm war tan.

I saw that this morning before the link was deactivated. The HR price difference between 2016 and 2017 is less than the LED option that it includes

Curious how the 34/10.5/17 looks with a 2.5" lift vs. 35/12.5/17. Is there a reason why you chose the AEV lift vs. Mopar with the same AEV Geo brackets? Thanks again!

I use spidey adapters now. I considered beadlocks, but not sure I want that maintenance on a daily driver(replacing all the bolts every year, etc). The mopar ones do look sweet though.

Aren't they the J.W. Speaker headlights?

All we know for 2017 Factory LED's, is that they don't appear to be the same LED headlights used on the 2016 Red Rock.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

The LED Lighting Group that was on the preliminary 2017 build & price indicated that they are reflector LED headlights, not projector. Think Trucklite, not JW Speaker.
