One of the perks is that you can change the title under your name.

Yup! I do things my own way, and proud of it! Don't like crowds, nor do I follow them. I do my own research, and follow my own advice. It's my Jeep, I'm paying for it, it's going to be equipped exactly as what I want!

Git yer own! Do it your way. All's good.

You spelled arrogant wrong.

Does becoming a supporting vendor get you all the same perks as a supporting member, plus you get to advertise and sell stuff?

So I wanted to add an option (and I'm not in D1 status yet), and I asked my dealer to do so, but I had to instruct them on how to contact the factory. They're going to send an email and hopefully it'll happen, but who knows. They weren't really sure what was going on and sounded a little perturbed. They said I could reorder, but I won't since its a Sahara Tan. Let's hope that email does its magic!

You need a vendor membership for that. If you just want to use the for sale section you just need like 25 posts or something.

My dealer's GM talked to his area rep., who emailed the factory for a change while I was in D-1, and it took! Good luck.. It's your Jeep and your money, tell the salesman/GM what you want them to do, don't ask!

I whole heartedly agree. I made the modifactions that I wanted and not what was "popular".

There is also a secret forum just for supporting members! You can only get there from the main page.

I'll have to look into that. I'm an Amsoil dealer and the jobber I buy from is one of the largest in the country, so he gets a very good price and passes it to me and I pass it on to others. I usually offer the deal on every forum I'm on, but nobody has taken me up on it in a while. I will have to run the numbers and see if it's worth the vendor upgrade or not.

I should also add that I really don't do it as a business, but I go through enough oil that it's cheaper to be a dealer and get the discount than it is to pay retail. If it was my main income source I could probably justify spending more money to sell more oil.

Due to all the excitement of some Jeeps moving to KZ and shipping, I just called the dealer to see how my Jeep is progressing (I was asking as I was hitting refresh on the link--yeah, obsessive.) Anyway, he told me that when I changed my options on my already placed order, he got worried that it wouldn't take (it was already in D status). So at that time he placed a second 'back up' order matching my original order and placed it in my name as well. The back up order went to D1 a week before my original order. He said I get the first one that comes in. So now I'm tracking two orders! I got the POC and the build sheet and everything matches.

I'm having twins!!!!

ndrugby, when you get back from HH, can I request another VIN to be added to the app?

Very true! I had to argue with them a couple of times because they didn't know they could email the factory and change it. They said I could reorder and all that, but I was pretty firm on the fact that they could change it. I could hear the manager in the background getting pissed, though I don't know why. But in the end they said they'd send off the email.

Man, this blows...
Mine was one of the first to be built on 7/14 and has been stuck at "Ramp Compare Inventory" since.

Like some of the others, my "load on railcar" and "delivery to destination" to has been completed deleted.

My wife has grown tired of my whining and brought up a good point. She thinks that since my JKU was one of the first to be built and stored, it would be in the back of storage lot. Therefore requiring clearing out and shipping the more recent built ones in front of mine.
Makes sense...sucks, but makes sense.

Last in, first out. In boats, stocks and, apparently, Jeep storage lots.

Ya, I'm waiting on the call! They are closed until Monday at this point, but that appears to be the day. I'll drive by this weekend and see if it is on the back lot. In Indiana, for some reason you can't buy alcohol or sell cars on Sundays! Only pray and watch football, which isn't bad!

Tomorrow?

I knew about the alcohol . A few trips to Michigan on Sundays back in the day.

You can't buy cars in NJ on Sundays either...

Congrats to you though!
I think once I see some pics of happy new owners with their 12's, it'll quench me (or make me even more impatient) till mine gets here.

It'll give me more time to get my custom wheels in!

If you aren't in D1, It should be as easy as a phone call to their Regional Sales manager for them to make the change. Its just a few keystrokes for them to make the change..

If it was me, and I had one on order with the limited color you have chosen, I'd have them p/u the phone and get it done.... Not send a dang e-mail..

Sounds like a lazy dealership/sales manager.

I made a change on mine.. 3 minute phone call, then a call back 30 minutes later saying my change was done and in the system!

The dealer I am trying to work with is giving me a "Costco" deal of $500 off factory invoice, but adding their $499 Doc Fee (handling fee?) back in thereby making it Factory Invoice. Anybody else seeing the dealer handling (or Doc fee) this high?

Hmm. They seemed to be completely clueless. Can I get in touch with the regional sales manager? Or would they just ignore me? And how would I find out who they are?
