There is a white Golden Eagle shown on that dealer website, with power windows - but controls on the door (?), not the center console. Aftermarket...?

I'm bummed they appear to be using the rims from the Recon... I like them, but thought of them as exclusive to the Recon.

Yeah I'd noticed that as well, I wasn't entirely sure if those controls were on the door or on the center armrest/console somewhere (that reflection really threw me) but they were not in the usual spot on the dash under the radio. New change that they'd snuck in there for 2018 JKUs? :confused:
Just looked at it again and now I'm really confused...is that a manual crank for the window on the passenger door? And wasn't the Golden Eagle package only supposed to be available on the Sahara (not the Sport/Sport S)? Is this a 'dealer installed Golden Eagle package' on a Sport by chance with aftermarket power windows/locks/mirrors?

I believe that had been revealed quite early on when Milous first told us about the new Golden Eagle package.

Golden Eagle not as nice as I expected. Pics on Diehl Jeep of Robinson

Agreed. That hood decal is crap. Also thought they were using 75th bronze bumpers, not black. Although there are bronze tow hooks.

Personally, I think that electric window control pic is in there erroneously. No wrangler has door window controls. And as mentioned, accurate pics of door show manual crank. Likely dealer error.

That hood decal is pretty low rent. I get the impression they half decided to scrap this project with the new model coming out or wanted to use whatever left over parts they had.

It would be like the Kool Aid company having a mystery flavor of Kool Aid that was nothing more than all the spilled other flavors of Kool Aid they sweep off the floor each night.

That's got to be it, simply a pic of window switches from a Grand Cherokee or something, makes the most sense. But still, wasn't the Golden Eagle package supposed to be optional on Sahara models only?

We found out earlier this month per the 2018 jk brochure that it’s based on the sport. I guess it was a last minute change. It’s based on the sport not sport s, that’s why it has no power windows. No ko2s, Bronze bumpers, and the interior looks like an after thought.

I'm just wondering since my 2017 Recon I ordered last year got crunched yesterday and I'm worried it may be totaled, if it's still possible to order a 2018 JKU Recon?
I think you are out of luck from ordering but I am sure there are still many on dealer lots.

2018 JK order banks close: October, 2017
2018 JK production end: March 31, 2018

Any word on how much the Rebates will be on the JK and when they start? There was a document leaked that mentioned them a while back but wasn't specific. It said March but no amount or date.
They have them going on all the time, just a matter of when you or one will see one. I haven't seen one in a long time, but haven't actually logged in and update my new address. :(

Going to do that now :)

In 11 years I have never seen a rebate on the JK. A leaked document said large rebates in March. Hopefully it is true but I guess only time will tell.

I was hoping someone would have the details.
