Jeep noob here. Wife and I saw the Copperhead color on a 2013 Ram and loved it but also love Billet. Pat said Copperhead could be a late availability and dealer is trying to get us to pull the trigger on a 2013 Billet. We don't want the touch screen or any bells and whistles. Are there any big improvements worth waiting for the 2014's to arrive?

I'm trying to find the 2nd code for "Hydro Blue", no luck so far.

"Atlantic Blue" also comes up as PBJ/ZBJ.

In fact we were just going over to a Billet Wrangler that was parked next to a Grand Cherokee in Granite Crystal to see how those compared when he walked up. Wish there was a color between those 2.
True, true.

Regarding your whole experience, .

Just terrible all around. Kudos to you finding the Jeep that you want and a dealer who'll really take care of you.

Thanks again - please keep me posted. If the real color is anything like the chip that you provided, I think I'm sold.

copperhead is going to be available the first week of August +- a week is my guess.

I went to the dodge dealership during the day and saw the copperhead ram in the sunlight, it was amazing. Went back to see it as the sun was setting but still hitting it between the trees. It is a spectacular color. As much as i love anvil i loved copperhead and am waiting for it

Possibly, but in Pat's 1st post 3.73 is standard and 4.10 is an option on automatics at $295.

Must be a quirk in the order system, I just checked and it's current missing.

Much appreciated! So you are sure that 4.10 is an option on the 2014 Rubicon automatic? Wanting to make the order today but want to add this option if I can.

Thanks Again

Milous,

Any idea if Amp'd is a Pearl or Metallic Coat or simply a flat like Crush/Dozer?

Thanks for the info on Hydro, I know we all want a nice bright blue and are hoping.

To those who've ordered 2014's, what kind of pricing are you getting compared to invoice? And, do you have to pay any additional dealer profit items such as doc fees, processing fees, pin-stripes, paint protector, etc.?

i know you had your heart set on it but yea..... i was also hoping for a bright vivid blue but that doesn't seem like the case here.
There's no way of knowing until the colour is actually released. Just compare the colour swatch from Cosmos and Hydro. They are extremely similar.



Swatches don't mean anything, and without a proper paint code we won't know until it actually hits the lot. Heck, even Amp'd to me looks just like Crush. I'm guessing this is going to be a skittle year with new names.

I am having the same issue as Prop Trash: Attempting to place dealer order but cannot get Rubicon/auto tranny/max tow/4.10 combination. Is there a way around the glitch or do I just have to wait?

i hear ya, but im going to have to agree with everyone else. due to the paint codes and what not. i think its definetly going to be that atlantic blue just with a different name. hopefully your right though and its something completely different.

I listen to Octane on sirius and Rush Limbaugh on FM and thats it. Dont use CD's or anything. If i didnt need my smart phone for work/email i would be the happiest man alive. I hate smartphones
Thats odd, my 2012 JKU Sport has Bluetooth streaming with the connectivity group, I was very suprised how well the cellphone Bluetooth works with the top off, I use it all the time with the 6sp. (I just hang up when I get to a red light, lol)

Easiest way to get a good deal is use the Affiliate discount. If no other way join Tread lightly, there is a 30 day wait I think.

I would pay none of the other stuff.
Got my 2012 for 2% less than invoice with Affiliate discount and no fees (just tax, title and license and my trade was worth more than the Wrangler so no tax ...was a weird looking sheet with just the price and $25 under Reg/Title/License Fees).

Looks like you cannot order 4.10's as an option right now. As of about 6pm west coast time the ordering system does not show the 4.10's, as an option.

I guess we will have to wait *impatiently.* I'm glad I'm not trying to get Anvil, or I would be nervous! Please keep me posted if you find out it gets fixed and I will do the same. I'm in Los Angeles area.

Thanks for anyones help
First, get a lower price for the JK than what AAFES shows. Bargain with them like you would anyone else. I dealt with them in Kuwait and two locations in A-Stan and their prices were not competitive enough. Pat mentioned that there would be Special Editions this year but no specific models are when while he did mention Anvil will probably be a short order color that may only be open to order for a month or so. The jeep website will most likely not update until September or so. Either way, get a good deal from AAFES(tell him to add a Green Beans gift card into the deal). Also, THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE!

There was a poster on another Jeep forum a year or so ago that claimed to be working in the Wrangler plant, and that one of the things they were testing on the line was fitment of larger tire sizes. He specifically mentioned a 34-35" tire, and that this could be directed at the 2014 model year.

Frankly, I am doubtful, but the rumor does fit, given the clearance change to the pinch seam earlier this calendar year. They may be planning a special edition or even a factory option for 35's. This would also almost certainly explain any production delays.

I'm eagerly awaiting more info on the '14's, regardless.

Of course they are going to "play" but no, 34 or 35s will not be an option. That option is up to you to decide after you buy it and add it or the dealer puts on a kit at additional cost. Think CAFE. This will be a huge hurdle for Jeep. We are lucky the wrangler has a future, but 35s??? Not OEM.

Man, they sure aren't making it easier for me to buy this Jeep!

I plan on doing the same thing with AAFES. At the moment right now none they have no information on the 2014s. I went in yesterday to the office and got told that. I"ll update if I can get anything for you.

This question may have already been asked: Is the connectivity group no longer an option, or standard on the Unlimited Rubicon for 2014? I see the AAJ description but no price... Additionally, what exactly do you get with the "Deep Tint Sunscreen Windows" that is different than standard factory tint? Sorry if these have already been addressed. Thanks!!
