Thanks, Rider. Forgot about the jack because I always carry my Hi-Lift around. That's exactly why I asked, so I don't get caught up in new Jeep euphoria and forget about the obvious (or not-so-obvious).
Do they still hide the jack next to the passenger seat? (I'm getting the Alpine speakers and assume that under-floor storage space is taken up by the subwoofer)

No footman loop strap for when the windshield is lowered, straps for door surrounds when removed?

I did find in the 2016 Owner's Manual that hard tops come with a storage bag for the Freedom Top panels, so I'd ASSume the 2017s would, too.

This is my first Wrangler and will be the most extensive mod I have done to a car so still learning...
You can leave the tires on if you have a full lift that is able to raise the Jeep up high but typical garage installs don't have that. If you are using jack stands to hold the Jeep frame up you would remove both tires from the axle you are working on and lower the axle (without tires) down close to the floor to drop the springs out. There are many resources online showing pictures and videos of garage lift installs to get a better feel.

Had forgotten about the storage bags, guess will have to ask about jack location. If you think of any thing else let me know.

Depending on the model purchased, the Willys edition should include a red Jeep bag with gloves, a tow strap and some other goodies. Many dealers forget about the bag but they should have a bunch of them in the back if you ask.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Anyone know if the 2017 JKU RHR comes with those also like the Willys?

Our Granite Crystal JKU RHR was built last Wed. and has been JB status since. Is this unusual and if so wonder why? Was told originally should be out in 5 days.

Second jeep I have ordered and I'm pretty excited!!! Just signed up for level 3 so I can track my new baby. When I ordered my 2013 it was free through the vots program so I'm happy to at least have the option to track it!

Look what I found!

Picked her up yesterday morning and spent the whole day cruising with top down. So much fun to drive, I almost forgot to buy sunscreen and a hat.

The LED headlights are absolutely fantastic, too. Definitely worth the upgrade.
