37PSI??? Holy Crap!

No wonder they feel floaty!

Do the chalk test but I imagine they'll feel MUCH better at 30-32psi.

I run KO2s and I love them...A lot less steering wander than the MTs and absolutely great in snow. I run 35psi

Whoa what? People were getting the black/brown dash with black(grey) seats? So like tri-tone? That's terrible.

On accident, yup! I felt so bad for them...waiting all that time for the build and then finding out the seats weren't black, they were gray.

I think these buyers wrongly assumed that when they order the saddle interior, that the seats would come in saddle and not gray. Possibly, because they see saddle leather seats in the brochures, but don't realize that these pics are of the factory leather, and not the "aftermarket" Katzkin leather they are ordering/buying with the leather/sound package.


in other words, the interior follows the cloth saddle color scheme, where the seats aren't in saddle.

Is there a difference between the factory black leather and the black(grey) leather seats in the premium sound and leather package?

Yes.

Again, the leather that's part of the leather/sound package, is "aftermarket" Katzkin leather, and installed by a vendor who's outside the factory. Jeep ships your Wrangler to them, they quickly install the Katzkin leather covers on the seats, and then ships the Wrangler back to the factory.

IMHO, if you really want Katzkin leather, it might be better to get it installed locally, where you can choose from a lot more colors than simply gray.

Okay, wow and thank you! I'd never seen this on the Jeep website. I'll likely be going with a Hard Rock any way, but this is really helpful info.

Anyone see the 2017 order guide yet? Haven't found a copy anywhere and want to start planning mine out before talking to the dealers.

I run 32psi with 35x12.5x17 and think the KO2s run great.

Milous. Thank you very much for the information. I will be ordering an 2017 in the next month. When I was looking at Willys Wheeler this late spring I was surprised to find it was the only model that one could not get side impact air bags. I was told by regional here that it was likely to be added as option on Willys for 2017.

Can you find out if this is the case? Is side impact option now on all levels? Or again excluded only from WW model?

Excluded from the "base" WW model ("K" package w/o A/C), optional on the "W" package (with A/C).
