I remember the Wrangler community up in arms, and throwing a tantrum, when the JK was first shown and its grill was slanted back just a tiny bit. Up to then, the CJ/Wrangler "DNA" had always been a perfectly vertical grill. Blasphemy!!!

And the Wrangler community was up in arms, when the TJ was first shown, and it didn't have the parking lights on the grill where they belong. Putting these lights on the fenders? Did Jeep simply forget the lights, and tacked them on wherever at the last minute?

And the CJ community was up in arms, when the YJ was first shown, and it had the rectangular headlights and parking lights. Well, at least they were on a vertical grill.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

My attempt to order today did not go well .

Dealership A: Gives me a great trade in price but had no clue about 2017s and said the manager that does new orders wasn't in.

Dealer 2: Gives me a great trade in price but said they weren't ready to accept orders yet.

Dealer D: Computer was up and running, could order one no problem. Wouldn't give me a price on my trade in without the "manager" and salesman taking my jeep for a cruise. I informed them that I would not allow them to take my vehicle but that they could go for a ride with me being that it's a 2016 with 20k of mods. I don't feel comfortable with them taking it. I got Jeep can't buy lifted Jeeps we are doing you a favor considering it, no dealership buys without taking it out alone, I already know how much I'll give you/it's a lot but I need to drive it ( from the "manager" that hadn't even seen it). When I informed them that two other dealers quoted me without driving and I have traded in multiple lifted jeeps the manager said how about you sell them the Jeep and buy from us... Lose 4k in taxes, I don't think so lol. Needless to say I told him I wasn't interested in continuing the conversation and left.

I think that I'll go back to dealership A when the ordering manager is present Thursday.

Hypergreen is not available in Hard Rock? Is that a new situation for 2017? I swear I though I saw some pics of 2016 Hypergreen Hard Rocks.

P.S. Dang it.

Yup. It's new. I just googled and found a HG HR.

FCA is going to be the death of me with colors for the HR!!!

Right now it's greyed out in the order system, not sure when and if that will change...

I would never buy a used vehicle without at least taking it for a test drive. So, I don't think that "Dealer D" is being at all unreasonable for expecting the same.

The other dealerships did it no problem. There is no reason they couldn't tell me what they would offer if all checked out. I could let them drive it then get a low ball offer which is a waste of my time. If we aren't on the same page there is no reason for them to drive it.

The dealership I worked with didn't drive either trade in vehicle. I don't know why.

Sorry it didn't work out today.

I went to a dealership within the last couple months and drove a willy's. Was trying to decide between buying it or waiting for 2017 (or 18). Manager wouldn't give me a trade value because I wouldn't sign something saying I'd buy a jeep THAT DAY. Yet he drove my car before he told me that, while talking on his cell phone...
