    My 2016 Unlimited Rubicon with an automatic, 4.10 gears, dual tops, connectivity and supplemental airbags was $38K+tax/title

    Invoice on a bare bones (all manual) 2017 Rubicon is $35700 so you should be able to get one for around $34500 (3% below invoice). So even i f they raise the price by $2K you would still be far under $40K.

    Yea my 2013 JKUR has every option with the exception of 4.10 gears and remote start. MSRP on it was $44K and some change I paid $37K out the door using the Tread Lightly discount and additional negotiations. So I think its totally doable

    Suddenly the 3.0L doesn't seem so out of reach...

    I think it depends on when you buy it. If you can hold out till 2019 when some of the hype cools down I think you'll be able to negotiate a better deal.

    Based on how I've typically used my Jeeps in the past, I'm definitely in the "all earth tones" camp, rather than a mix of tans and still a lot of black. If you're mostly cruising the urban jungle, you just got the vehicle for the Jeep badge, or your Jeep is just your daily driver, no big deal I guess, but I've always used my vehicles for getting out, away from everything. My wife and I enjoy taking time up in the mountains to observe the wildlife. We often take friends along, who stand on the seats for a better view or to get the perfect photo. Even from just the standpoint of having dogs, the earth tones hide paw prints, dog drool and fur better.

    I'm definitely missing my 95'.

    Even if just 1% below invoice, instead of full MSRP and "dealer markup", it makes the upcharge palatable. If we can even get it...

    With the new 33's planned for the Rubicon does anyone know if that will include a bigger lift to go along with it. The reason I ask is if I were to buy the current JK I was going to eventually add 33's and a small budget lift. Now that this comes stock it may be more reason to wait for the JL.

    The Rubicon HD suspension is rumored to be around 1" higher than the other models. That and they designed the wheel openings and rock rails to handle at least 35s, so no additional lift needed. Want is another story altogether...

    So the JL Rubicon is rumored to be 1" higher than the current JK Rubicon?

    Rumor has it...

    It gets spec'd with heavier springs and shocks, so I tend to believe this one.

    I realize it could be a higher ratio, but even on the Hummer with the 242HD and the Jeep's 242J, I've only ever seen it as a 2.72:1, which is why I say "no other option currently", as they could always change that should FCA so desire to better fit the new large ratio 1st and massive spread of the ZF-8. However, I don't think FCA would change the SelecTrac as it would be easier to account for if the split were the same as it has been in the past, and also if it is the same as the other 'commuter' option, and odd ratio would kinda complicate things for no real benefit.

    I realize they could offer a FT 4WD Hi in RockTrac, but it would require a major redesign, as the RockTrac is chain driven, so next to no slippage in the system, so 'No FullTime without a major Re-design'...which could be the slogan. ;)

    In any case, very happy to see SelectTrac, and perhaps this is the first step, and then there is a 4:1 option Rubi option in the future, I'm always happy with more options, especially those that match my Winter-centric use-case model.

    In the market for a new car (Explorer finally not worth fixing up anymore) and saw the changes...definitely peaked my interest with the Sahara Unlimited. I'm one of those that would use the Jeep for a DD & off-road now and then but would never be taking it rock climbing or through dunes/rough terrain/etc.

    Would love to see some images already...at this point so much information is out, Jeep should just reveal it so people can start placing orders if they want one.

    In terms of the special editions, is it easy to determine which ones are based off of Sport, Sahara, Rubicon?

    Welcome to the site. Have you seen these images? Basically exterior and interior revealed already. I'm sure the base models will look slightly different but the basic styling and changes is all here. :involve:

    LOL you first pic looks like my first day in the NorthWest Territory last year, and all the Silica dust impregnated the carpeting and also cause the front passenger Window rocker switch to fail and just covered everything. PThe black shows up every bit if dust & grime, and is only beneficial at the cleaning stage so you can see if you got it all.

    BTW, you can keep the twigs and leaves out if you put the doors on. :giggle:
