It's like a long yellow line used to get yourself out of a situation or someone else without causing any damage.

It is red - looks good with the red trim items on logos and red jeep on rims. Very happy with it - traded a 2012 Sahara.

So the dealer is to install a yellow strap some place? Or is it something they just give you?

I will have to ask the dealer tomorrow. I have found a lot of new RubiX's listed on the web with this added but can't find any details on what it is.

So you went over the list after you made the purchase?

Its a bag with some gloves, tow strap, d-rings, and tree trunk saver. Nothing to install, my dealer just handed me a box with the kit inside, but I did have to ask about it.

It is, but dealers and salesmen seem to know nothing about it. Either they are playing stupid and hoping to keep them, or Chrysler isn't communicating very well with the dealers.

Ok - Got back from the dealer and they said that a lot of the Rubicon X's are coming without the Tow Strap kit. This kit is a tow strap, d-rings, gloves and a storage bag. I also was able to talk them into getting the rear slush mat - wasn't sure if it was to come with it or not but they threw it in pretty easy. Thanks for everyone that provided good information.

No.

The Trail Kit was late availability. So, only X's built starting a few weeks ago, get it. I don't know of the exact date.

And its "dealer installed", which means it doesn't come in the Jeep from the factory. The dealer has to hand it to you.

I emailed jeep and asked about this trail kit and was told yes I should have received one with my jeep. Here is part of Jeeps's response "
According to our provided resources, the MOPAR Dealer Installed Tow
Strap Kit (71K) is standard on the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X and
other Wrangler "Special Editions", and optional on standard model
Wranglers" . I provided my VIN and now I am waiting to see if they are gonna send to me or arrange pick up at the dealership.

When was your Rubicon X built? And was Jeep's response based on the X pkg contents today? Or as of 4 months ago?

The X pkg contents didn't start to list the Kit until just a few weeks ago, as far as I could tell, about the same time as the Kit became generally available.

I am wondering, what about those who got their Rubicon X back in September. Is Jeep going to back-fill those?

(PS: This is the same Jeep responsible people that also claimed that the Rubicon X can be ordered in Copperhead.)

Just picked up our new Rubicon X last week. Wondering what others were hearing about the tow strap kit. Mine listed it as an option for the 24J kit, on the dealer's website, but the parts guy is telling me mine doesn't come with one. Really?

What does your window sticker say? It should say "Dealer Installed Tow Strap Kit by Mopar(R)" as a line item under the X package under Optional Equipment...

They are shipped to the parts guys, then the dealer is supposed to give it to you.

Here's a window sticker example: 2nd column 1st entry under the rubi x package...
