Production beginning dates

Got this from a reputable source at the Toledo plant:

4 Door Unlimited models will start building on 7/24/06.

2 door models will start on 8/28/06.

I thought for sure the 2-doors would hit production before the unlimited.....i thought the unlimited was going to hit the dealer AFTER the 2-door?

The same source told me about 6 months ago that the 4 door would be first.

I keep hearing that the 4-door will come out first. But I would have thought they had already began production to stock up for the release date .

Yep, though going by production dates, Jeep seems to be betting on selling more 4drs then 2drs for the JKs

I can't wait to test drive one of each! Not that I'll be trading in the TJ for one of these Jeeps, but I bet they will drive nice.

My buddy at TNAP confirmed that the 4 door is coming out before the 2 door.

Makes total sense if they want to help dealers to clear the lot from the remaining 2dr TJ. 4dr JK vs 2dr TJ will not be competing as much..

Interesting.

I wonder who's right? Or maybe production was moved up one week?

Thanks for the link.

Sorry, don't know when the dealers will start taking orders.

Why would we have to wait for the dealers to get their acts together?

Can't we order online and have it delivered to a local dealership? I would think that would save some time...
