Thanks Milous... any info is good info.
Makes me think Acid is being reserved for a Sport based special edition?

The Big Bird edition? Maybe "bear" was an autocorrect typo.

Any chance Chief is available with Willy's package?

If you were a betting man, at what point do you think we will find out once and for all when Chief would become available? If it's not going to be offered until the "C" Special Edition comes out in March, how far in advance might they make that information public?

Thanks so much for all the information, Milous - I would be losing my mind without your updates!

Being that I am seeing some evidence that Chief is not being limited to a special edition, I believe it will launch much earlier than March. Knowing Jeep, they may not official announce color production dates until the vehicles are in showrooms lol. I hope to have the info well ahead of launch.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Milous, someone over in WF is saying that a Chrysler Rep told him today, that the production start of the 2017 Wrangler is being slipped out into October.

Have you heard anything?

Haven't heard anything in that regard. I would think if it were to be delayed they would have also delayed the order bank opening.

Ordered a 2017 JKU on Wednesday and I just got my VON from my Jeep dealer. How can I use this to follow my order?
