Hi, all! We just picked up our first Wrangler a couple weeks ago for my wife's daily. We came from a Durango R/T which was an awesome vehicle. We lost a little bit of space and a little bit of power and a few creature comforts, but we have always wanted to make the leap to a Wrangler. It'll be a soccer mom-mobile primarily, but we are excited to hit some trails and take the top and doors off this summer. I gotta talk to jeepcares asap and get these off road pages back, ours disappeared within a week of purchase. NOT impressed with that bait and switch they pulled on us. We're happy to join the jeep community.

Our first Wrangler! Just took delivery a few weeks ago. After renting one while my suburban was in the shop I had fun driving it and decided to buy an extra vehicle to drive on weekends. It’s a lot of fun to drive!!

Hi,
I'm sorry to hear about your Off-Road Pages. We've been working closely with our Uconnect engineering team and I've been told they estimate the fix will be pushed out this week. Please let me know if you would still like me to open a case for you.

They're referring to loosing the Off Road Pages.
Not really a bait and switch though, because I think everyone lost them. It was a programming issue when they updated UConnect with the Market app. Should be resolved soon, they've been working on it for about a week or two now.
Obviously not the ideal situation but tech can be a tricky creature some times.

OP, welcome to the family. Our Sahara was my first Wrangler too. You're going to love it. The first mod I recommend is the Bestop Sunrider for hardtop. I don't really take the entire top off anymore but man do I have the front open a lot more than I used to. Not that it's hard to take the Freedom panels off but the Sunrider makes opening up the front even easier, plus you don't have to worry about carrying panels with you. You can still take the top off, but it requires 4 more screws so not a big deal. Turns a 7 minute job into a 10 minute job. It's worth it for the convenience it adds the rest of the time.

Sort of off topic, but is the Jeep online configuration correct that the black hard top panels at $1,195 and the color matched are no extra cost? Maybe I am misinterpreting something. The choice, for me, is actually SkyTop One-Touch vs BesTop Sunrider for HT in black.

Welcome to the addiction!
Addiction is accurate. Looking into LED light swaps for the front now. Our old Durango had projector HIDs and the halogens aren’t cutting it for us. So that’s mod #1

Thank you! We were very impressed with the off road pages when we test drove the Jeep, then I went to show my brother it a week or so later and it was gone. I will wait a couple weeks and see if the new update fixes. I’ll open a case if it’s still missing after then. Thanks!
