I have a love hate affair with this state. Nothing can touch its raw beauty, size, wildlife, fishing/camping, and basically it's all around uniqueness.

But, like it was stated before, the weather can suck, and the cold starts wear on you. One day, I'll snowbird like my parents do. Until then, it's lots of vacations...

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Yesterday I asked if the black bear package ended in with the 2016 model year. Should I also assume the hard ended with the 2016 model year too?

The hard?

The Hard Rock is continuing this year. You can even get it in XP.

Looking to order a 2017 Hard Rock next week. This site has been great. Anyone know when pricing will be available on the Jeep.com or www.edmunds.com websites? Thanks.

On Jeep.com, not until after the official announcement in September. Typically, there is a lag of weeks.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So now that we know that Hypergreen continues and there can only be 9 colors available at a time which of the new colors won't be available at launch?

I'm looking to order either the Gobi or the Chief, this may help my decision.

With the extension of Hypergreen, there are now 11 colors listed. If, as WaltA says, there is a 9 color limit in the robot painter union there are 2 that wont be avail at launch.

I am guessing Acid Yellow will be one because we have no sample yet. What will be the other??

You beat me by 3 minutes. Wondering the same thing. I am surprised Granite is still on the list as it has been avail twice now but i bet either Gobi or Chief is delayed.

Great minds, right?

Agree that it seems Yellow will be one of the two delayed. Not sure which I am rooting for the other to be as they both look good to me.

I missed out on ordering a 16 as the window for Mojave Sand had closed and was not crazy about any of the other colors. The wait for the new colors has been killing me.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Waiting takes a toll on a person. I was all set to order a 2017 this fall but now after my jets have cooled I just might wait for the new model 2018. We already have 3 vehicles for 2 of us so no handicap if we wait.
Decisions decisions....

Probably Chief since there is a special edition "C"...

I can't remember...did we ever figure out what the "C" stood for?

According to the folks from jeep.com, this is the response I got regarding pricing...

The "Build and Price" should be updated on the Jeep website when the
2017 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited start arriving on dealer lots
in September, 2016.

So, sounds like a trip to a dealer in August might be in order...
