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!

|MattMudd||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.|

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.

No changes, outside the engine bay. Bank on it.
And wheels....I forgot the wheels.

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.

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
