One of our readers, DesertBuzz sent us this photograph of various 2007 models on their way to a dealership. Included on the truck are a couple Wrangler Unlimiteds.

Have you seen one at your local dealership yet? Had a chance to check it out, give it a test drive? If so, let us know in the comments area below.

These pics are dated correctly, check www.jkboard.com , This truck is headed to a storage lot, not a dealer.

Checked out the Rockcrawler.com pics. I have always been a litle supsicious that the tank and t-case crossmember looked a little low to the ground. It is deceptive because it is so rounded but it looked low to me in the pics I have seen.

The tank and crosmember are pretty bashed. Maybe they were really beating on the thing but makes me wonder.

I have never been on the Rubicon but I have driven stock rental TJ's over Moab Rim and some other trails in UT without hardly scraping anything. I hope the people driving them were hacks or really beating the crap out of them.

I drive a truck for a living and saw my first 07's on a "parking lot" (our euphemism for car haulers) heading east on I-80 between SLC Utah and Evanston WY on the 27th. I guess they rail ship them to SLC and reload them for WY because that is a goofy direction for a load of Toledo made Jeeps to be going. Saw a couple others on trucks as I headed out to Oregon.

Strangely I still haven't seen one at a dealer yet. 1st one I see I am gonna hit the four ways, park and run over and see one in the flesh.

Then I will hop back in my rig and immediately wish it had a diesel and they would make the Gladiator. :(

Rockcrawler.com has a new posting with lots of pics of the JK/JKL on the Rubicon trail. A first drive report is also supposed to be posted at 12:01 Sept 1.

The JK looks pretty sweet.

Today they announced that all Rubicon were being pulled from the schedule due to "material restrictions." They will consider scheduling again after 9/24.

 Re: 07s Rolling to Dealerships
I don't have much more information.
They had some Rubicons scheduled for September and pulled them. The memo said due to material restrictions which could mean about anything.
They will be doing October scheduling the week of 9/24 and will review the situation then.

And I was thinking that this would be a smooth roll out....wrong. They are already about 3 weeks late and now no more Rubicons for a while.

BTW The NAV/DVD/Hard Drive radio they have been talking about isn't in the order system at this time. Start date for that option is speculated as 11/1 and the pricing shown on some sites is wrong. It should open in the order system around 10/1.

The pic is dated Aug 11. Now, the camera's date might be wrong, but if not, this pic was taken over two weeks ago, in which case they should be on the lots, right? But I thought the production just began yesterday. Or was that of the 2-door Wranglers?

That black Unlimited at the front certainly would look nice in my driveway.

There's supposed to be one in Ft. Wayne this week. I didn't see a "Rescue Green" one on the truck, guess I have to wait longer for mine!
