Or wait until the 2019's come out, so you don't get the initial first model year bugs?

If we weren't getting a 2017 JK, we'd definitely wait for the 2019 model. No way do we want a first model year.

Congrats, Fat Bastard! Was it easy? Where did you order from?

Another exterior color is Chief. It is a medium blue. Lighter than Hydro Blue. Saw the color swatch book.

That's the other one. I was skimming through the book trying to remember what the other new color was. Guess the reason I didn't see it is because it wasn't there. My local dealer didn't have any info on when Chief would be available for order. I really want to see one.

Koons is the best to order from.
Please email [email protected] or Craig Benner at [email protected] with your specs and we will build and price order out for you.

So how does everyone go about tracking their order? I was under the false impression that VOTS was still around.

OK, Craig at Koons said Chief, Gobi and Xtreme Purple are coming, but not until later in the year. I'm really looking forward to seeing what Gobi looks like. We just may get it if it's dark enough.

Chief may not be available until the special edition "C" model is released in March. Hopefully it's available across the model line, but we will see. Gobi and Chief are my first choice.

If you become a supporting member of JeepGarage.org Milous will track it for you.

I hope it's not too late in the year. If I decide to order Chief is the top on my list. Actually it is rhe only color that really appeals to be. I've always said I want something a little different if I ever bought a new Jeep. If I can't wait for Chief I guess I will go white.

Saw one a few weeks ago. It is different. Just not my kind of different. Now if it was electric lime green that would be a different story.

No sir i just bought from them in March and it was so easy and painless. When i feel a deal is just amazing i tell everyone. I talked to seriously like 20-30 dealers all in the surrounding states and nobody came close to what Koons offered. It was clean, simple and no BS. Dont deal simple

The ultimate "trail rated". Just fly over the boulders, down trees, and rivers.

To order you have to go into a dealership. You tell them what you want, they will fill out a build sheet for you to confirm, you give them a deposit (usually 500-1000), and they order it.
