Black Bear build questions

Hey guys, if anyone can answer these questions please jump in. I am on jeep website building a 2 door black bear wrangler, when i choose heated front seats i get a pop up saying i must select alpine sound system which then shows up as a 0 dollar option in the vehicle summary? . Also i only want a hard top , but the premium soft top is included in the 4700 dollar black bear package, will the soft top be deleted and will the money for the soft top be deleted with it? thanks

Re: Black Bear build questions

It seems to be yet another error with the website.

To me, it appears to be going down the path of adding the Sound+Leather package, which gives you the Alpine, Leather, and Heated seats. That's not correct.

Hay, the 5 yo Jeep uses to maintain their website probably didn't have their nap. So, bugs like this should be expected.

Also, yes, when you replace the soft top with the hard top, the price of the hard top should already contain credit for the soft top. Well, unless you also order the dual top option.

There are definitely issues with configuring the Black Bear.
Currently, the price for the package is $4700 for both the JK and JKU.
All JKU's come with A/C as standard equipment.
The base JK Sport doesn't come with A/C standard.
Both JK & JKU BBE's come with A/C standard. But the package costs the same...even though the JKU already came with A/C standard.
This plays out on all Sport-based Limited Editions, and Jeep amazingly seems to get it wrong in the early stages every time.
Usually, the JKU version of an upgraded package gets Power & Convenience Group as the replacement for A/C. Well, the BBE has that standard as well, so that got overlooked.
Some people who are configuring/ordering recently are saying that the JKU is getting the Alpine system as standard (or a $0 option) as replacement for A/C. That might play out to be true (or it could be part of the Heated Seats package).

The current order guide states that the Alpine system is included when you order the Heated Front Seats (JPM). It says that for both the JK and JKU.

I think currently Jeep doesn't have their shit together on this one.

If you order just a Hard Top, it looks like you still have to pay the full $995 MSRP. Since the Premium Soft Top is standard equipment, you don't get a price reduction for deleting it.

If you order Dual Tops, the price is reduced because the Premium Soft Top is standard equipment, but the original Dual Top option included the $500 increase for the PST. A Wrangler Forum member, along with his cooperating dealer, contacted FCA about this early on and got them to adjust the price, and the 9-23 order guide reflected the price change going forward.

Re: Black Bear build questions

Also, the 10-8 order guide says you can now add a rear locker to the Black Bear:

LOCKER REAR AXLE (DSH) $1500 MSRP

This has been confirmed to be available in the dealer ordering system, but won't know for sure if it's truly an option until someone orders it and it gets accepted.

The same pricing oddity goes when comparing the 2door and 4door for the 10A/X/Hard Rock. The package price is the same, but the 2door people get more new features added.
