Awesome Hapoo. I have the same configuration coming in a couple of days. Can you post a pic showing the full sides? I'd like to see how the black top/fenders/paint all contrast together. From what i can tell, PERFECTION.

thats almost three weeks.

is that what you guys are seeing? I suppose the spreadsheet my have more info on estimated delivery dates vs actuals. seems like a stupidly long time to get from Toledo to Minneapolis.
My estimated delivery date is a full 3 weeks from pick up to Phoenix. Estimated delivery date is same as yours 4/29.

Definitely a good exercise to quantify the difference. Unfortunately, a few states are like CA, which doesn't allow for a tax credit on trade-in.

Nothing negative intended, this is my 1st Jeep so have become a "research freak" and did a very quick search and found several Jeep Forums on the subject, that's all.... Sound's like your dealer has experience.

My dealer also said

'yah, it looks like the 29th, but no worries, it'll still be one of the first in the country to be delivered.'

little does he know.

Will do.... I feel very blessed for the urgency in witch mine came, 5 weeks from order to delivery! I feel for all of you that been waiting for so long. Things seem to really be moving now so hopefully all this pain will come to an end for everybody real soon.

This blog entry has a great testament of the 10A performance. Must have been a photo of the one someone posted earlier on the streets of Moab with the rock rash on the rear fender.

LOL, I wouldn't be surprised!

Does anyone with a 10A know if they come with wheel locks? Or has anyone heard this?
Mine had the wheel locks on from factory. But will be switching for my gorillas.

Tread Lightly

A bit of guidance on Tread Lightly. Negotiate your best price, and then pull TL for an ever deeper cut. TL is at least a 1% below invoice gain for you, and in turn the dealer is reimbursed for that amount and then some. So if you negotiate to 1% below, and then pull TL, it would be reasonable to expect to end up at 2% below. With TL, the dealer is generously 'made whole'.

I like what I am hearing, but I need more education. This isn't the way I understood it (partly according to posts by Pat and this link Affiliate Rewards Program Rules). Are you saying that I can take an additional 1% off with TL and the dealer is indifferent?

I could do 1% below invoice with TL at my local dealer, but he told me no need as he would do a little better by giving me $500 below invoice. I know under the Chrysler Affiliates (i.e., TL) program the dealer is making 2%. But, since my dealer didn't want me to use the affiliates program, I was assuming he made more without it. I speculated it had something to do with different or no holdback with the affiliates program since that is the only conceivable variable. BUT, if you are correct, then I need to talk to my dealer.

No - your credit union should give you a check and you buy your new jeep as if you were paying cash. Them telling you that you can not finance it through someone else is crazy talk.

If understand what I think I learned, it is fair to ask for the 1% TL beyond what is agreed to, as the dealer gets more than 1%, as much as 2% back in return. Maybe there is a delay in that reimbursement, which is driving your dealer to deal deeper? They don't have to agree, but I'd think they'd jump as they would be more than whole. I'm going to test it in the next week or so, as I'm already over 1% below, and going to try and use TL to go deeper.

On interest rates Northrop Grumman FCU (Ngfcu.us) has 1.69% for qualified parties, and by taking the option involving the museum to join, anyone can join.
