Hi Everyone--
Can anyone tell me how 2017 Jeep Wrangler Chief editions were manufactured? I'd love to know how many Chief blue Wranglers, were produced, but would appreciate a general number even if it includes unlimiteds. Thanks!

There are still Chief editions yet to be built, so you are not going to get production numbers just yet. But there is a cap of 3500 max. I also would be curious to know how the numbers work out. We will have to hit up -PLMCRZY- after the run is done at the end of July.

2017 Chief Numbers

Thank you TrailBadger and moresmoke. I will ask PLMCRZY. Was under the impression that the Chiefs were a March thru June run.

YW there is another jeep forum which seem to be more in tune with the factory runs and limited editions because several of those members claim to be FCA employees. Sadly, I'll not post a link to their site based on how they treated me and those like me with new jeeps.

2017 chief numbers

Thanks for the info. Shocked and disappointed to hear someone would disrespect you because you own a new Jeep?! If it wasn't for new wrangler owner's, the beloved Jeep brand would go belly up! No place for wrangler snobs!

It's all water under the bridge. I have a brighter future here with the Wrangle forum. Hope Plumcrazy can get the answers you need.

:) There's a beer AND a pizza in it for PLMCRZY! BTW, I appreciate and admire vintage wranglers, but the 2016 Rubicon and the 2017 Chief parked in my driveway make me smile! No one can make me feel bad about that! I'm very fortunate.

I was more of the.. Gobi and wife was more of the Smurf.. We couldn't buy 2 so we had to reach an agreement.. Select a neutral color.. Granite and build from that. Just off the top, I'd have to say the Smurf chief was the most popular with the Rhino and Gobi chief editions a close/tied for second. Defiantly a rare bird. But you ain't seen the rarest yet.. wait till 2018 JK's arrive.

This would be an interesting factoid to know as well- I have the chief in rhino and there were only two left within an hour of dfw....

Is this thread intended to ask about the Chief Edition, not Chief the color?

Chief Edition comes in several colors - Base color with white top and stripe.

Chief color comes in, well... Chief.

There seems to be quite a few Chief editions left in the MA/RI area. I just saw a Chief Blue Chief listed at a dealer in MA yesterday. I feel like the Blue fits the spirit of the edition the best, but I REALLY like the look of the Gobi ones.

If I buy a non-Chief JKU, I want to do kind of a reverse Chief...do a satin or matte black stripe to match hardtop in place of the white stripe. I think that would look pretty cool. Or co a contrasting color and bring it across the hardtop. Like a color matched white one with a black stripe.

I have so many ideas on stripes and graphics, but I'm sure they've all been done before, haha.

Maybe I am trying to resurrect a dead thread but... is there any way of knowing how many Chief Blue Chief Editions were made or just the percentage break down on the colors?
