Nothing on dates for new colors. Pat said to stay tuned and information may be available soon.

We placed our order on a 14 this morning. We got factory wholesale prices on everything including options. I asked for the holdback money but agreed to split the difference which gave me a credit of $544.00.The dealer took off the $150.00 doc fee also. All together I saved almost $3000.00. Our trade in was appraised in writing for $6500.00 which came in higher than blue book. We'll be receiving the sahara wrangler unlimited in anvil. The only part of the order I'm concerned about are the leather seats which are described as DARK saddle. Is all saddle the same shade?

I'm pretty certain the 9th of August we should be ready to order. sounds about right to me. i know Pat's original post said this is subject to change, but so far all the info and dates he has put out has been spot on

I'm thinking august 9th i will be placing my order and i can't wait !!!!!

Yes, they are all the same shade.

If you read Pat's post, it said that they should find out on the 9th WHEN the colors will be available to order. Unless I read it wrong, it doesn't say that the new colors will be available on that date just that they should have more info on it.

maybe he can come on here and clarify. I'm pretty much in the mindset that, that's when they'll be available to order.

I read it like you. ie you might be able to order the color you want starting Dec 5 and the color you hate on Nov 8 etc.

Past experience from the 2013 thread tells me this is when the availability dates will be set. You may NOT be able to order all colors/options at that time.

Example

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee:
Rear DVD Entertainment Center (AEK) - production scheduled for 07/22/13


This information may come out in May, but you aren't able to order those options/colors until the production scheduled date.

Chrysler Trucks (Production Updates)


Even after production is scheduled, Chrysler can always change the dates. A bummer, I know. The color you may be waiting for may not be available until December.

That's how I took it. Meaning on August 9th the dealers may get info saying that Granite will be available to order on September 10th or 20th. But the information may not come on the 9th OR that Jeep could always change the dates of release.

Example from the 2013 thread:

Quote:
Exterior Colors

BILLET METALLIC CLEAR COAT (production starts 09/04/12)
BLACK CLEAR COAT
BRIGHT WHITE CLEAR COAT
COMMANDO GREEN CLEAR COAT (production starts 09/04/12)
TRUE BLUE PEARL COAT

Colors to be discontinued:

CRUSH CLEAR COAT (production ends 11/09/12)
DOZER CLEAR COAT (production ends 10/12/12)
GECCKO (production ends 12/14/12)
DEEP CHERRY RED CRYSTAL PEARL COAT (production ends 02/08/13)

Late availability colors (dates are the scheduled start of production, order banks will open in advance of dates listed):

ROCK LOBSTER (10/01/12)
DUNE (12/06/12)
RUGGED BROWN (02/04/13)
ANVIL CLEAR COAT (03/04/13)
FURIOUS FUSCIA (05/06/13)
http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/201...ad-161113.html

In this case, the info was originally posted in May, and many of the production dates changed (Furious Fuscia never made it). If you wanted a Rugged Brown order, you had to wait until the order banks open for that color, usually just a little before the actual production date.

Quick question regarding my JKUR order last week.

I automatically got the Power Convenience Package because I have the Unlimited and a Rubicon right? I didn't see it on my build sheet.

You will be so happy if you go through Pat. He's the reason we all have more info than the "other" dealers - not to mention, he's just a stand-up honest guy who is excellent to work with.

I got ahold of him via PM originally, but a phone call is probably the best bet (as linked in the above post). Worst case scenario, google Fields Chrysler Jeep Dodge, and call and ask for Pat.

Pat is very accessible - we have talked via PM, forum posts, phone conversations, voicemails, and emails.

For what it's worth, when I read it I understood it to mean Pat would have order dates for the rest of the colors. Not that they would all be available that day.

But at least we should finally HAVE dates! Imagine how long we'd be waiting if we DIDN'T have Pat. He's my hero...

This wait is definetly becoming a pain in the ass.... so now the dates of these colors will be released and another god knows how long of a wait to get one of these specific colors ordered, afterwords another month and half of waiting to get it delivered to whichever dealer everyone has ordered from ???

Honestly if they do well enough on the price, I may take the nav, but it's not a necessity.
Yes, at the moment in Canada the only options are 430N and 730N.

I guess I will have to be more clear in the future. As of today, our next allocation period opens on August 9th. Generally, that's the soonest I would know of any additions to colors, packages, price changes and special editions. I have been fortunate to meet some folks that have the same opinion as me and believe the right info should be available to the consumers and answer my numerous questions so I can post it here. I'm hoping to have some more info for you all this week.

I really don't think we will see more than 1 new color open for ordering, and if we follow history for the last few years I really think it will be September before we see one of the new to Wrangler colors open. If I don't get a chance to talk to some folks, the 9th will be the soonest I know anything. Milous might be able to chime in if he has any dates.

One last thing, unlike the 2013 info thread, there is no information available on Donlen for 2014 that I could find. This forum might have had something to do with that

The dark saddle leather is basically all the same shade. Remember leather varies slightly!! You will love the saddle! I get complements on it at least once a week! Post some pics when you get yours. Congrats!

Come on granite. be granite be granite be granite Thanks Pat for clarifying. If it wasn't for this forum I probably would have already ordered a Black JKUR because I would have no clue about the granite crystal. So I guess this info on the new colors is both good and bad.

wheels.com seems to have more up to date production holds and lead times. For 2014 Wrangler - No Restrictions

https://www.wheels.com/fleet/referen...CountryCode=US

That may be intentional since other similar sites indicate that the factory will no longer report Wrangler

Has anyone who has taken delivery noticed any changes to the rumored oil filter shroud? Same pentastar engine, so the oil filter should be the same, yet some sources clearly state "not compatible with 2014," for the 2013 MOPAR oil filter...

The oil filter part number for the MY14 Grand Cherokee (Pentastar) did change, I imagine the JK filter P/N will change also - but just a guess.

Great...I will have to keep stocking 2 different oil filters, or trade in my wife's 13 JKU on a new one? I know which option she'd choose...

The suffix AB and AA apparently refer to the same part. Some sources reference both numbers as "alternate part numbers." I'm confused.

The 8 digits are the part number. Been awhile since I've worked on any Chrysler stuff but the first letter could be part of the part number and the last is a revision level. Or both refer to revision level. Can't remember exactly.

Chrysler made a revision to the part for some reason. The suffix is part of the P/N. I did the first oil change at 3k miles in our '14 WK2 3.6. I was told if I tried to use the P/N used in previous WK's, it would not fit and would cause an (internal to the housing I would suspect) oil leak.

The 11-13 WK used the 68079744AB P/N

The 14 WK2 uses the 68191349AA P/N

So it is a different P/N

Good to know. The 2014 Owner's Manual isn't uploaded to jeep.com yet. I've been trying to stock the cabinet with essentials by using the 2013 OM as a guide but all it says is "genuine Mopar oil filters are recommended." No part number! Lame!

Can anyone in possession of a 2014 JK Owners Manual see if they spec an oil filter P/N?
