I did the exact same as you, except i just taped of my tires. Mine isn't perfect by any means, but it'll do. Did you have some trouble doing yours? I'm not the best spray painter

Mine aren't perfect either. Few drips here and there. But they look great. No one stares at your wheels up close anyway. I clear coated not for the look. Actually thought about skipping also. I did it for an added layer of protection for the paint from rocks, trail rash, etc.

Looks like you did well. Looks great. Congrats.

Yea I have the same thing few drips and whatnot. I wanted to clear, but couldn't do it. Figure this way if I do get a chip a simple spray will fix it.

Nice work on yours too! (actually thought yours look better than mine... )

For anyone who has been reading this thread, I stated a while back that I had solid info on a $1K rebate for September. Well my source was not accurate and for that I appologize.

Pat, tell me when you want that Lobster dinner.

My jeep will be in around the 20th. Are we certain that no incentives were or will be announced by then?

Picked up my 2012 Natural Green Unlimited Sahara on Monday!

As a lurker since inception of this great thread, I want to especially extend a thank you to everyone on here for the great insight.

I'm already on page 2 of a list of mods I have planned... Can't wait to get started!

Here is a little eye candy for those still waiting... I hope you all get your jeeps soon!

PS... I promised my friend/dealer I would recommend him on here (he was impressed I knew more about the 12's than all of his floor guys). Helfman Jeep, Dodge, & Chrysler in Houston (I-10 & Silber). They were extremely helpful and made the car buying experience painless and fun! I live in Dallas, but he made sure that didn't make it any different than ordering from the dealership. I will definitely take my business to them in the future!

So I left Doremus at 10:39am this morning and still haven't gotten to the dealership as yet. Where do these guys go? I think that's it for the updates on Insight other than delivered to dealer. Maybe tomorrow is the day.

So I have been trying to figure out the whole trailer sway thing. I can't believe that it wouldn't be included with the Max Tow but it would be with Trailer Tow. This realese from Chrysler makes it seem that it comes standard on all Jeep Wranglers:

Standard electronic stability control includes electronic roll mitigation, Hill-start Assist and Trailer-sway Control

HEY DOM! Mine's on the train somewhere in Cali by now- left Sparks, NV at 11:30am. I just may be in my JK by tomorrow night or Friday morning. Still rootin' for you, though I'm ready to be done with this and out enjoying mine! I hope you get it soon!

Regarding incentives, the new wrangler is selling like hot cakes based on industry reports. I expect they will have 2011 incentives for sure possibly beyond those in place, but I wouldn't hold out high hopes for any truly great incentives on 2012 Wranglers in Sept.

Dude, if that's the real dozer color as I can see it right now on my screen, I guess we've got a winner! Pretty nice color!

Nope. Ordred on 8/25, D1 on 8/31.

Future has been saying 9/13 for shuttle to facility since day one of D1.

All I can tell ya is I refresh that Insight page constantly. I even set it as my home page to make sure I won't miss anything.

Finally picked her up today! I absolutely love it. I had to do battle with the dealer over my trade-in, but after that it was smooth sailing. They did a good job with the detailing and making sure everything was ready, and they even gave me a tank of gas. I tell you what, it's so much nicer in person, and it's so much more fun to drive than I thought. And it handles so much better than I thought it would. The new engine and transmission are great. It's got a lot of pickup and handles everything easily. Best of all, my cute upstairs neighbor stopped me and started gushing about it.

And here's an interesting bit of information I got from the dealer. I asked about the 3.73 gears in it, since I ordered before the whole thing got sorted out. I was told that if you ordered the AHT trailer tow package before September 1st (and you had an auto), you would get the 3.73 gears upgrade automatically, even if it doesn't say it on the build sheet. However, after Sept 1, it would have to be chosen as the optional selection that everyone sees on the website now. I have yet to crawl under there and make sure... Though I'm not really sure what to check when I'm underneath.

Did it say 3.73 on the window sticker ? If not I'd question it. Why, cuz I was told the same thing and ordered the same color, AHT, and auto. It came in with 3.21 and I refused it. I dunno if there's a way to check on the axel but I had heard that there a code on the fill plug of the diff. I hope yours truly is what you ordered. Mine was not. Now I sit and wait for my second order...not tan.
