A very slight distortion of the truth to highlight what great service you provide Pat.
Hey! Quit giving them ideas!


Jeeps rule on the 405 today!


<refresh> Do they build on Saturday?

Quick update,

My dealer ETA is still the same but my "current" went from "Carrier Can Put On Hold" to "Ramp Compare Inventory"

I have no idea what that means but at least something is happening.

Do they build on Saturday? Sunday?
That's my build date, 6/24, so maybe I am next week too. I hope so, I am in Jeep withdrawal! I just sold my 2004 an hour ago! Hated to see it roll down the drive without me! So build like little elves so I can get back in a Jeep!

My sympathies. It can be rough. I try not to think about when my old friend, the '42 GPW that I had for 32 years, drove off with it's new owner!

SENTRI pass

One of my favorite places to ride is down in Baja. Crossing the border back into the US can take as little as 10 minutes to as much as 4-6 hours. For a 3 day weekend that is a killer.

I applied for a SENTRI pass 3-4 months ago and just had my interview this week. I had to take the entire family down and current vehicle for interviews and inspection. Start to finish it took 5 1/2 hours with interviews lasting about 30 minutes. Approval is in process.

So for a total fee of around $250 my family of 4 should get a 5 year pass to the SENTRI lane which typically has an entry time of less than 10 minutes.

My best time after 20 years of crossing? Six minutes. According to the CBP agent current wait times for interviews are now 5 months.

He stated nothing much that is going to make a difference. (I know I looked like a sucker walking in there after pulling up in my minivan with 2 kids climbing out carrying their McDonald's lunch) Told him I wanted to look over the booklet and see what options I would like.

What I would like to do now is research the invoice price on the 2011 so that I can see what kind of numbers I would be looking at in either that or the 2012. I am definitely going to get the tread lightly number and begin building my jeep.

If anyone has a site I can use to research invoice that would be great. Good luck with all the builds going on!
You can get the invoice for 2011's many places but I usually use Edmunds.com

As for the 2012's check Milous's thread here:

Hello Up Hill Willy:

As I understand it, that Deep Tint Sunscreen Windows option, is just for the side windows, and that the hardtop comes standard with the deep tint.

Is that your understanding also?

Respects,

Richard

Confirmed for my build with "build sheet" from Chrysler.

Just don't call him wee willy. He has already been associated with the color gecko and reptile dsyfunction (even though he came out of the closet as a "tanner"). The weight may to too great to bear and cause irreparable harm to his delicate psyche.

we like you Bill..really. After all, former swabbies can do no harm

That is my understanding also Richard.

It means it is on hold for QC and inspection. Like I said, it might be built, but's it's going to be held for awhile, I was told up to 2 weeks before they are released.

You will be okay, I sold my 2004 TJ in late May... the sad thing is I had already made arrangements to rent a place at the South Padre Island for June and July. It's not been as fun as when I had my Jeep. I see tons of wranglers out here and that has made the withdrawals much worse... My Island rental lease will be over end of July just before I am scheduled to get my new Rubicon Unlimited.
I will be back at least for the weekend when I get that rubi of mine.
I agree, build like little elves so I also get myself in a Jeep soon.

I thought the Deep Tint Sunscreen Windows referred to the hardtop side and read windows. Could be the rear door windows though. Sounds more likely. Geez.. I hope there are no surprises! But, my dealer told me he has never seen a JKU Rubi hardtop without deep tint windows.

All's good, my friend. Never been the slightest bit tender that way - survived the Navy, you know! Have fun, I will to. But "wee Willy" couldn't refer to my overall physical visage (6'2", 210lbs.) Must be something else, hmmmm?

Yep, former Navy also. It's called repartee amongst former shipmates. For me the humor has always helped pass the time and make unbearable times bearable. I live in a very high stress world and this helps my sanity.

2 weeks in QC hell good grief bmbredrider,- We may have to take back the holy grail we gave you

new update this morning.



whatever that means...

Dying to start ordering parts for it. I know there is a 99.99% chance the body will be exactly the same as the 2010-2011 and take the same parts, but I'm weary in case the parts I order might not work with the 2012 for one reason of another.

Oh yeah, with all this tint talk, does the Sahara unlimited back windows come tinted standard? I see it does with the Rubi, but can't find a def answer whether or not the sahara does as well...

This actually doesn't make me upset, I need time to sell my Tc. And I'm glad they are making sure my wheels don't fall off at 80mph.

Maybe they'll hold the week 1s for 2 weeks and the week 2s for 1 week and release them all together.

It's a good thing, when Merecedes was was involved, they didn't care, ship the vehicles and let the dealers worry about it. Fiat is different that way and it's working.

Your Wrangler will get another inspection once it hits the dealership. IOD fuse installed/fluids checked/test drive by a tech/etc.

That is a good thing. I'll wait a week or two if it saves me the hassle of issues in the future. That doesn't mean I'll enjoy waiting. I'll hate it. But I'll know it's worth it....I think.

Wait, mine hasn't even been built yet

That's pretty awesome that they're doing things professionally. Going into my first Chrysler product, I'm a lot more confident in it's quality. If they keep this sort of thing up, Americans might want to buy more American-made cars!
