2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Changes

I know Jeep typically does not change it's body lest every 7 years. So technically we should not see any changes until 2014. I recently orderd my 2012 Rubicon 4 door and I want to buy some stuff from 4wd.com and Quadratec.com to put on my jeep the day I get it. I tried to call jeep directly and the lady I spoke to was not knowledgeable at all and not very nice either.
Does anyone know if there are going to be any changes to the interior or body?
Thanks in advance

There shouldn't be anything major, but there could always be little tweaks that will affect fit.

IT may be easier to wait than to have to return something that you really wanted... I'm waiting

FWIW, my JK is supposed to come in end of August/first of July and I have several items I'm ordering from AEV (bumpers, lift, wheels, hood). They said they would have all items ready by the time my rig came in, but said to be sure to tell them, it is a 2012. That 'seems' to indicate there are some changes - guess we'll know for sure in a month or so.

No changes, outside the engine bay. Bank on it.

And wheels....I forgot the wheels.

I think this might be a bit too emphatic an answer. Even on years that have "no changes," there are changes.

The 2011 for example, moved the sub-woofer in the back, and messed up the fit for a bunch of storage things (like our Instatrunk). They also moved some wires under the seat. And the soft top windows got a bit bigger.

I already have tires and wheels sitting in the garage for my 2012 that is on order. What changes did Jeep make to the wheels?

I called 4WD and Quadratec, both stated they haven't heard of any changes and Chrysler won't say.. So to be 100% safe I guess hold out before buying anything. Quadratec said they'd refund or trade anything if their were changes though.. All I wanted was some seat covers and a screen separator to keep my dog from thinking she rates the passenger seat.

Matt:
It's usually a bit AFTER a Jeep is released before an aftermarket manufacturer gets the chance to measure, and check out the small differences.

Car makers aren't really great at helping us aftermarket guys out.

So it takes some time before the aftermarket companies can tell the retailers what does and doesn't fit.

This is true for the big companies and small. For example, we might be told of things that impact the soft top, since we make the OE ones. But we aren't told if there's a small change to a seat bracket that makes our lock box not fit (just an example to make the point). Even worse is when SOME of the vehicles have a change, but not all.

Sorry - I can't blame you for excitement, but this industry just doesn't work that smoothly!
