Ooof. Waiting half a year for Chief is going to be tough. Guess more time to save money! Maybe even add a few extra goodies I wasn't originally planning on.

And the "special edition" Willys Wheeler (Sport based) and Hard Rock (Rubicon based) editions.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I saw this on Wrangler Forum:

"Just thought I would let you all know that they cut off Wrangler orders at 1 PM eastern time today and the ones we put in all got VON's instantly. Also any 2016's that we had ordered that hadn't been built show an order date of July 27th and they all have VON's and VIN's now and show in D status."

Anyone know if there is any truth to it? I hope not, I didn't make it in this morning and planned on going tomorrow.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I did have someone from Beaman tell me this afternoon that orders wouldn't open until Tues or Wed, and I replied that couldn't be right since I had already been collecting pricing and preparing to order. He was going to check into it, but that may explain that answer.

What a hairball for impatient dorks like yours truly.

If true, and my memory is working, its the Mopar branded version of the TeraFlex 4838100.

Slap the Mopar name on it, and have it installed, the price isn't all that far off. For example, compare the price of a hitch on a Hard Rock from the factory, to the price of a hitch from Quadratec.

Oh no! Are you thinking that because the March special edition is called "C"? Would that also mean that Chief would only be available on the special edition itself or would it then become available for the other models as well?

I'm new to the forum. Does any one know if the actual order guide is available. If so how to get one?
Thanks

Something I saw today, and don't take this info to the bank just yet as I have not been able to confirm it - Chief and Gobi are showing up as being available on all 3 trim levels (Sport/Sahara/Rubicon) and Acid Yellow is showing Sport only.

Would you anticipate we will find out what the future schedule/availability of all of these will be once the official launch starts in September?

Probably not. I've seen the 9/01 press release and unless they revise it, no new information will be available.
