(CJ,YJ,TJ) are cousins with (JK, JL). Family resemblance for sure, but not nearly as strong as it is between brothers.

Then, would that make the C101, C104, and the FC series ugly step-sisters?

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

I would love to have a Commando, or an FC in my stable.

FC series was adopted. Ugly, possibly, but no CJ DNA at all.

I agree, the JK was (still is) a FANTASTIC sales success, there is no need/reason to change it's appearance (or vast capabilities) all that much. Too much of a drastic change could interrupt that gravy train.

Re: 2018 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I just want to know what the color options will be, and what the pricing options are. I kinda hoping that the JK prices will drop once the JL is released. I just hope that all the options and packages that you can get on the 2017 will be available on the 2018's.

Chances of pricing dropping greater then the current depreciation rate for used is not likely nor is are price changes on MY18 from MY17 aside from slight increases. Options from what has been said will decrease from MY17 in terms of total models to order but anything is possible.

Time will tell in the next 6 months or less.

Black, white, red, and silver. Plus some long-shot rumors for a surprise color or two like Acid Yellow.

I agree, Wranglers are just selling way too well for FCA/Jeep to start dropping prices or giving huge rebates as they do on some of their other models. JK sales will likely still be strong well into the debut of the JL.

Re: 2018 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I plan and hope to order a '18 JKUR as soon as I can. However, I'm honestly terrified that they'll change things on me last minute. I'll admit I'm very picky, and I like things very specific ways, so that's why I plan to order one. I'm afraid that a few things could/might happen with the '18 model year. One, I love the color Firecracker red. I really hope that color stays for '18. I love the cold weather group package, everything in it is something I like and want, and I'm afraid that it won't be an option for '18 either.

Basically, I know every option and package I plan and want to get as of right now for the '17 model year, so basically I just hope they don't remove anything that is currently offered. I can't just order a '17 right now, I'm finishing saving up to be able to financially get one.

Any word on what will be removed if anything for the '18 year or what I can expect to be different?

I would expect very few changes as far as "removing" anything goes. The 2018 JK's will run for a full 6 months, and I would imagine there will be several special edition models.

As far as colors go, that's something that's not finalized until close to start of production, so probably won't have that info until August/September, possibly earlier (i.e. if someone "forgets" to put away the keys for the filing cabinet).
