Will willys get the side impact airbags option for 2017

When I was looking at JK willys last spring I was surprised to find it was only Wrangler not to offer side impact airbags.

The willys has the functional parts and looks I want except for this problem of it being the only model without the airbags on the side.

I know the Wranger is not a Volvo, and driving it smart for what it is, is the biggest safety enhancement. But side whacks are often purely other driver's fault and as Jeep does especially poorly on side hits, I do want the airbags.

Does anyone know if this has been changed for 2017?

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

When I ordered my 17 last week. The additional airbags were an option. $595, I think.

Thank you kindly! I was not sure if it would get lost in that large thread.

I am looking at Jeep's comparison tool in "detailed" list for an hour now and I must be missing something. WW two door I am looking at is 28,200 (2016) plus A/C is $29,500. But WWW is $30,300

Running down the whole list til I am blind, it looks like this makes me pay $800 more ($1,00 more considering I lose window tint included on the WW, but exclude on WWW) more for nothing?

Is this some kind of pricing error based on the four door model including power windows and doors, and the two door model excluding it? Or is this the correct info? Seems backwards in that here are more windows and door actuators included in four door which includes the actual equipment compared to two door which does not? Is it $800 for the wiring harness upgrade part?

I feel bad as I was going to surprise my son who is in Airborne coming back from his third tour and he has a picture of my dad for whom he was named, around a Willys just before his first intense combat during the battle of Luzon with the 11th Abn. in early 1945.

If this is not a pricing mistake on the website, am I better off setting up a "Sport S" with options of A/C, and the other WW options such as mid range gearing (@ 3.73), the Dana 44 in back with Limited Slip, and rails as optional add ons? The decals would be highly sentimental, but I can't see paying $800 to 1,000 for them.

Yes...2 dr. I am still confused about the cold weather package. Says available on the sport model (which, essentially, the Willys is a Sport with the Willys package). I want to add remote start, but was told it is not an option with the Willys. Why would they include it in an optional package with the Sport, but not allow it to be an option for the Willys. Boo

do you have a print out of the order from the salesperson. could you black out personal details so I can show my salesperson? Again we are discussing 2017 WW two door, (not WW-W two door) with side airbags.

Mine is the one with A/C. So I guess the WW-W? Sorry, I'm not familiar with all the abbreviations. Although I didn't order the air bags, they were an available option. So weird that they are not offered for all of the models. I wouldn't see this as a luxury item! Lol
