If you found what you want on a 12 and you really like Flame Red, then get that one. Personally, I haven't seen anything new on the 13's that would justify a 5 month wait. Get the 12 and start enjoying your summer!!!!

Get a 13. You will be part of the newest jeep crowd and beable to down play all. Lol. The only reason I would wait is to see the additional options if any and determine what year will best suite you.

Nothing major new on 13. Pay more with 13 or get a great deal on a left over. Minus some minor changes they will be the same.

I've followed the 2013 thread. I don't think the additional options are worth several thousand dollars to me if I could get the RIGHT 2012... One question I have had come up now though about 2012's...

The 2013 now lists Trailer Sway Damping as standard. If I am looking at a 2012 with 3.73 gears but no towing package will it have the trailer sway damping? (its an easy fix to add wiring and a receiver, but anti sway I'm assuming is not such an easy fix) I read somewhere that a 2012 owner had not gotten the towing package but read in his manual that he did have anti sway.

Man, I sure do wish I had joined this forum and read this thread BEFORE I ordered my 2013. It seemed to be the best way to go however. It was just as you said, there was no RIGHT rubi in my area. So I decided for about 15 bucks a month more over what I would have been paying for the available 2012 rubies I would opt to order the exact jeep I wanted. It's 'in the mail' so to speak!

So I made the move on a 2012. Got it at right at 5% below invoice as best I can tell.

Flame Red Sahara with a body colored Hardtop, Manual Tranny, 373 gears
Other options - Max Tow, Heated Leather, 730 GPS, Connectivity Group, Side Airbags, Trak-Loc, Automatic AC, 7 Spoke Rims.

Loving every minute of it. Top and doors already found a home in my garage...

I'd be glad to pay more for a 2013, as long as I'm certain the ticking head issue has been resolved.

I don't think model year matters as much as when it was built in the model year. Since there's no major changes between 2012 and 2013 I'd suspect hardly any difference between a late build 2012 and an early build 2013. I initially wanted a 2012 since I'd save a ton on Excise tax here in Taxachusetts but could not find one in the color/options I wanted so ended up ordering a 2013. If you can find what you want in a 2012 (and it hasn't been sitting on the lot since last November, check the build date) I'd go with a 2012 as long as you can negotiate a good deal.

From what I've read Trailer Sway Damping was not included on the 2012 unless you got the Tow pkg and also could not be added (which I don't really understand since it's a programming flash). I did read that this is standard on all 2013s whether you get the Tow Pkg or not.

I read that one guy with a 12 went in to have it "turned on" in the system and it was already activated even though he didn't have a towing package, but it didn't end up mattering for me since the 12 I bought has max tow...
