My jeep did not come with straps for the windshield. There is a bag to put the freedom tops in and there is a small pouch with the tools needed to remove doors, lower windshield, etc. That's it.
Hey
Okay, folks. I have received my jeep today. I am going to flood you with pics. I'm hoping they help some of you visualize what your Jeep will look like. If there is something specific you want a photo of, I'll try. But, keep in mind, I plan on driving some place as much as possible and not be hanging at the computer, LOL. I took a photo of the headliners and rear seat just in case someone was curious.

Could you check something for me...mine is close to identical and I’ve been looking into paint protection film. Upon close inspection, it seems that the front fenders are fully wrapped. I know the rears have a strip on the front part but haven’t noticed anything about the fronts. Could you check and let me know? It’ll require a very close look as it was easier to see and feel on one of the fenders than the other.
Many thanks

:idea:Anyone who hasn't ordered yet, what if you asked the dealer how long it would take for delivery? They will likely say something around 10 weeks (mine said 8 - 10). Tell them you will take it but then ask them to put in writing that for every week after that, they take $100 off. that would have been $1000 for me and some of the folks here might of ended up getting theirs for free! ;)

I am not really serious but I am curious what the response would be.

Question?? I know this is off topic...sort of. I’ve been looking at paint protection film. Upon close inspection, it appears my front fenders are already wrapped fully. Yes, I know the rear fender has some on the front portion, but was not aware of the front. Maybe it’s only the Rubicon, maybe not. Could someone please check?
Many thanks
My Billet Silver Rubicon has only part on rear fender. None on front.

I think your fenders are painted? Check along the outside edge

My guess is that they would tell you, "thanks for coming by/calling/emailing us...we wish you luck with whoever you decide to order through". :)

Could use some forum member input/advice. Ordered 1-13-2018. Checked, double checked, triple checked order with dealer before leaving. I can't explain what they did but needed to get a case number because the vin I have was under a different buyers name. Now MY vehicle is on a truck, good news, exact build but no pst. I'll get the pst but any thoughts!

I know. Probably doesn't matter anyway - everyone ordering now may get theirs in 10 weeks! :):beer:

That's what I was told...8-10 weeks. We'll see. I figured the patience that the people have had in this thread...2-2.5 months is a blessing if it holds.

Heading down your way pulling the Jeep next month to Bristol for a week and then to the Smoky's area for a week. Couple of weeks ago I was worried I wouldn't have it, then it all happened at once!

I hope you get it real soon. I ordered 1-11-18 at dealer 5-26-18.
As long as you get what you ordered be happy as you will love it.
Only thing you really want is that window sticker with your name on it.
Hang in there you are better at this wait than I could be.
