Adding:
Teraflext 1.5" Leveling Kit
Painting Exhaust Black
Torn on OEM Automatic Start (afraid of reviews that said it kept car from Starting normally)
Ace Rocksliders (I think...)
Matte Finish Window Visors
Warpig Rear Seat Recline Kit

Probably keeping the rest stock... For now at least!

Currently in Production but should move to "I" tomorrow. Ordered 8/19 D1 8/30.

The Seat recline kit is something I was considering too but I was holding out hope that perhaps Jeep finally did something about that in the 2017 (highly doubtful)
Are you going with WeatherTech window visors, the ones that slip into the window channels as opposed to sticking to the outside? I think those look better but I read a review where someone said he noticed more wind noise since installing those, so I'm a little reluctant now.

No I went with the Rugged Ridge that has the tape for that reason... however I have been second guessing myself since I purchased them because I agree that the window channels look better... Link to what I got... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Anyone in here with experience of each have an opinion?

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

So I'm sure many of us already have our eye on accessories and mods and might even have some sitting at home waiting for the arrival of the new Jeep, as I do.

Here is what I have already waiting to install.

*Folding Sunshade for the Windshield
*Two Sunglass Storage pouches that strap to the Rollbar (driver and pass)
*Tail light guards
*Black Stainless Perforated Grill insert by RuggedRidge (to protect against something hitting the radiator)
*RuggidRidge Matte Black Hood Wind Deflector
*RuggedRidge Black aluminum Hood Latches
*SmittyBilt GEAR Tailgate Storage bags
*BOLT Hood Lock (uses Jeep key, so no extra keys)
*MOPAR locking Fuel cap ( will be made to work with my Jeep key)
*MOPAR fuel door
*USA Flag vinyl decal for left and right fender behind front wheel
*Allied Star insignia vinyl decal for Hood and smaller ones for rear sides.

I also have some Klassen All-in-one polish Sealer, Invisible Glass cleaner, Microfiber cloths and applicators

Then later on...

*Warpig Rear Seat Recline kit
*ARB or Barricade full width front bumper and Warn Winch
*Barricade Rear Bumper (possibly another brand)
*Barricade or ACE Rock sliders (works with factory Rubi Rails)
*EVO leveling kit
*ProComp 69 Wheels (black) with Cooper Discovery STT Pro 295/70/17 tires
*MagnaFlow Dual Axle back Exhaust

As for the bumpers, LOD is coming out with a new line mid October and the previews look great so far

Eventually looking to get the BestTop under seat locking storage boxes

Does anyone know what "railcar release by consignee" means? I looked through other orders and most just say railcar departed from yard but doesnt have anything in regards to Released by Consignee... My Estimated delivery date moved up about a week so I am assuming it is a good thing

Woo! Exciting news today: my JKU-WW is out of production and on a railcar! I might be able to pick it up from the dealer as soon as next week!

I noticed a bunch of others hit KZ today as well. I wonder if they loaded up a whole pile of JKs bound for New England onto the same train.

Waiting for mine to get back from getting the seats and steps installed, then off to New England as well.

I am not sure about the 2 door or even if people consider it but definitely a common mod for JKU. It leans the back seats back about 2". Doesn't seem much but apparently it makes a world of difference for rear passengers. Google war pig rear seat recline kit.

You could also consider building yourself if you want. Fairly simple kit. I chose to purchase.
