Re: 2016 Wrangler Information Thread

You're looking at "Retail" pricing. You need to look at the invoice price. You should be able to buy it 1% below invoice easily. Just tell them this is what I want, and this is what I'll pay. Tell...

Re: WK2 or Wrangler Unlimited for Family

I have both. With children, the WK2 is the only reasonable choice, for safety reasons.

Maybe it's a 2-door vs 4-door thing, maybe it's the 4.10 gears, but while I wouldn't want to go on a 1000...

Re: Do custom orders normally take this long?

Sounds like your dealer didn't code it as "Priority 1-Sold Order".

Most likely it's the standard "Priority 99-Whenever" scheduling.

Re: Rubicon Hard Rock JKU vs Sahara Altitude JKU

Then I would highly recommend getting a Rubi with 4.10.

The difference in driving, especially acceleration from a stop is very noticeable vs the 3.73 gears on the Sahara.

Re: Rubicon Hard Rock JKU vs Sahara Altitude JKU

Are you going with an auto trans?

If so, get a Rubicon, Hard Rock or not, and 4.10 gears. It'll make it feel much quicker around town.

Re: Should I even bother with 2014 Diesel GC?

The extended warranty also covers you in Canada, and speaking from experience, their dealers will see it if you have to bring it in while travelling.

Re: 2016 Wrangler Information Thread

Does that make the only NAV option the 430, or are the rumors of the 8" nav system true? I can't image they'd redo the center stack as production is winding down for the JK.
