I hope it's this June as I've already told my dealer I will be paying him for one when I pick up my 2015 PA next month. If I don't get it when I pick up the PA, at least I'll have it covered. :D

Matt,

One thing that would be great for the new livewell would be a vertical partition that could be used (when needed) to seperate 2 different baits in the livewell. A lot of us fish mud minnows and shrimp. Keeping them seperate helps the shrimp last longer! I will make one for my Livewell XL.

Confirmation received that production will not be complete until June. Add ocean freight, harbor issues, trucking and further processing here... I'd now expect July, but we never really know until we get container load information.

About how many bunker will the new live well hold as compared to the old? I have not really looked at them yet.

Matt - do you have the physical specs on the XL compared to the STD? I know it doesn't fit the Outback but would be interested in the overall measurements, weight (empty and with water), etc.

Waiting for weights.

Any word, are they "on the water" yet? Can't wait to get it on my new 17T.
