Will the Hard Rock offer interior color other than black? The saddle or olive. Black is too hot in AZ.

Same interior colors as 2016 models.

I had an all black (interior and exterior) 2 door soft top and now have the saddle 4 door hard top and both are just as hot. (Tucsonan here...). I actually burned myself getting into my saddle interior about a month ago and that never happen in the all black Jeep. I have a Hard Rock now and can say I like the leather in there more than the saddle. The saddle has become like a baseball glove and is slick. I slide around a lot when I'm wheeling which isn't good. The only thing I like about the saddle is the look with the Tank exterior. Hope this helps...

Of course it isn't because that's exactly what I was planning to order. FCA is really irritating with the color choices/options so far in 2016/2017....Wish I'd been in position to order one in the 2013-2015 range as there were colors that I just *loved* each year. I think they've let some depressed emo kid pick colors lately

It happens really with every model year.

Back when I was ordering my 2014 (in Oct of 2013), I wanted Copperhead. Copperhead was available on the Rubicons, but not the Rubicon X (later called Hard Rock).

Unknown at the time, about six months later, Jeep opened up Copperhead to be ordered on a Rubicon X, but for only one week. Then, just as fast as they opened it, it was closed the ordering window right back up.

I haven't read through all of the threads on the 2017 JK, but does anyone know if the revised 3.6L will come in the 2017 wrangler?

I don't think so, as I understand will be available in 2018. However was told by a dealer he could order my Hard Rock next Thursday as Milous said.

Thanks Holly (and Milous). Nearby Florence, AZ here. Plan to order Rubicon 2-door auto (to replace 4-door auto), premium soft top (replaces hard top w/insulation ), in either Acid Yellow, Xtreme Purple, or Chief (mostly depending on how Acid Yellow looks). Hope color charts are out on 8/11. Even though 4-door is much more practical, I find the peppier (lighter) feel and the better maneuverability in town and on the trail more to my preference. I like the Hard Rock hood but prefer the regular Rubicon with cloth seats (will go with saddle interior) and the small floor cubby in the back. These Wranglers are great fun and with the new '17 headlights nighttime driving will be safer .

(By different I mean fantastic btw, I think I'm in the minority when it comes to digging Amp'd)
