re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I just registered specifically to say "Milous, you are a glorious human being."

I've been following this thread daily for weeks now. I already scheduled a day off and made an appointment at my local dealer for the very minute they open on the 11th. So when I got into work this morning and saw the update, I was so incredibly excited. My boss is even letting me take a few hours off work to make the necessary phone calls.

So, once more with feeling: Milous, you are a freakin' wonderful.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I have the same question - I would love to order a '17 JKU in Chief, but maybe not if it takes several months to become orderable?

Does anyone have a guess based on something like this happening in a prior year (something listed as an initial color, but then not appearing as orderable right away)?

Thanks.

Thanks for the updates. Looks like I will have to wait as our first choice is purple. Might go with red but not sure.

Possibly Milous or Walt could give you a definitive answer... but if you want a guess, I'm your man.
I believe the Wrangler assembly line sprays with nine colors at a time. Right now they're just offering the seven carry over colors... nothing new. Sept 1st is when the actual 2017 press release happens so I'm guessing you'll see Chief and Gobi join the team then. Hyper is scheduled to cease production late Nov... so maybe we'll see Acid or Xtreme then? Just my guess.
We're in the same boat though... I'm waiting for Chief myself.

Contacted 2 dealers, one local and one not (y'all can guess the non local one). Local dealer came up with an MSRP for one, and then offered a discount which seemed OK. Non local dealer couldn't provide any pricing yet, as his system had not accurately reflected the invoice pricing, but he was to be meeting with the rep from Jeep tomorrow. Hoping to have things ironed out by next week, so I can order the Hypergreen JK that I can't find anywhere.

I'm guessing Chief won't be out until late fall or early spring. FCA likes to torture their customers over color. Unless it's the standard white, black, silver, or red...you're at the mercy of FCA to decide what color is released and for how long.

Yeah, ditto. Heard the same thing about a pricing issue from the same guy, most likely.

Three other dealers I contacted evidently haven't even rolled out of bed yet. Absolutely no response.

Not exactly go getters, or maybe still getting used to this new fangled email thingee.

Can Hard Rocks be ordered today as well?


Are there any different options on the Hard Rocks from 2016?


Thank you.

If I recall correctly, I ordered my Baja during the second order window. The first was July, the second in August.

So I bet September would be a good bet for the next colors to roll out after the first round of dealer stock(yaaaaaaawn) has been filled.

Swadehead. Spelled different but an awsome song!

I have no idea when the new colors will start running, but I will give a heads up. Normally they run a few test cars a month or so in advance of their release.
