re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I was under the impression that the current Mopar rebranded JW Speaker LED headlamps will be the ones to be offered as factory installed for the 17s? I have both these and the Mopar rebranded JW Speaker fogs installed and working phenomenally in our 2016 Hard Rock Rubi. I couldn't imagine a change in brand when these are proven and already being offered as a factory produced accessory.

I'm not here with FCA's blessing, so I refrain from posting pics from inside the plant. I'd hate to throw away 30+ years.

I do, however, have a photo badge that allows me to take pics inside the plant. It authorizes me to take pics of problems that come up with vehicles or parts. Are you listening FCA? Just tossing that out there. I would have loved to posted live from the 75th Salute build. I took some awesome pics.

Were you in any of the videos they've posted on FB?

I absolutely love the Salute Jeep. I wish they'd offer that as a trim level. I bet it would sell like hot cakes.

Not sure. Facebook is the one social media I dont do.

It would be easy to make any jeep look like the Salute, Holly. Other than the door hinge and striker area being filled, Its all bolt on items.

Does anyone know if the 2016 order banks are officially closed? If yes, then what's holding up release of the color examples for 2017? Have they released the paint codes for the new colors? If not, maybe FCA is not yet sure themselves.

I don't think the new color samples are released to the public, until the official announcement come September. We do have the color codes now, but past history has shown that FCA repeats color codes, so by those alone, we can't be sure (ie, Tank uses the same color code as a dark green metallic paint used years ago). "Chief" uses the same color as the Navajo Turquoise used years ago. IMHO, that means that "Chief" might be a similar, but not identical, color in the blue family.

Remember, just because FCA releases the color samples with the announcement, doesn't mean they are orderable at that time.

And then there are those surprise colors announced during the model year.

Haven't yet read all the replies, but will the Black Bear package be going away for '17? I sure would love to see a Chief/turquoise with that hood sticker/SE design.

You can buy a black bear sticker from dealer and apply it to any wrangler except the Hard Rock and X.

Sure, but aren't there some SE specific things on the BB? Seats, etc.?

Looks like the Black Bear won't be returning Thinkxingu.... but per Milous there will be a Big Bear Edition... available early spring. Colors, equipment, etc is anyone's guess though.
