re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So my Hard Rock order was supposedly placed yesterday by my dealer. They were supposed to be entering my email address into the system so I can get build/status updates. Anyone have any idea about when I should be receiving my first notification? I'm not being inpatient about the build, just was to confirm that the order was placed correctly.


Another thing....the dealer said that there was no option available for the tailgate support.


Thanks.

Literally speaking, he's correct. Press release is September 1st and 2017 Wrangler production launches September 19th.

So true.

There is a LOT of time, which comes sometime after those dates.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So if that ends up being right, that would be September 1 or so? Did you get any other details from your dealer? All mine said was "we have no idea if it's coming out or not."

sorry - this was meant to be in response to this:

Do you mean the Big Bear edition?

That starts production in February so you should be able to order it in January.
Thanks for updating me. So until the new editions are released in 2017 we can only order one of these models?

I had the swing gate reinforcement on my quote. Sales code "XDB", $895.

Rubicon, not HR, though.

Swadehead,
I placed an order for a Hard Rock yesterday also. I ordered it in a Granite Crystal, they took my email address and gave me a VON number before I left. I was also told some got status updates,but some did not.

There haven't been emails or status updates from FCA for more than 2 years. We all track through Milous on here.

What exactly does this reinforcement consist of? That's a good sized chunk of change...

I'm thinking it might be not be released until the special edition launch in March. Still trying to find launch dates for the new colors.
