Seems my Jeep is here but I can't pick it up until Monday . The paperwork from Chrysler Impartial Services Group is not here. Chrysler is buying my old Jeep, so I must wait for paperwork. Now it will sit around all weekend getting finger and butt prints on it .

Well if you are sitting in it all weekend it would just be your butt print.

And for that extra dough, they are just as prone to flicker from what I hear. From what I understand if it bothers you enough, there are currently aftermarket harnesses, and shortly,at least Truck Lites is expected to have dongles with resistors to eliminate the flicker. I've gone TLs, as I like their look, and for the savings, seem at least near comparable.

Just called IAMJEEP today and still in Inspection. If I get the wrong dash plate,shift knobs or something isn't right with my jeep after week of this so called "fine tooth comb" inspection Im going to sue Chrysler for pain and suffering. Picture of the inspection

I see a lot of talk on smoked lights. I was planning to do it myself with VHT Nite Shades, but I was searching ebay and came across these, which are pretty cheap. Anyone have experience? I feel light the tail lights might be too dark cause I don't think they're LEDs. They also sell packages without the tail lights and without the red dash (which could be cool for the 10a's if it fits well). Thoughts?

Anybody know how wide the stock rims are? I'd like to put the 285/75/r17 km2s on when mine comes in, but don't know if they'll fit. BF Goodrich says it needs a minimum 7.5" wide rim.

I think they are 7.5'' but someone can correct me if I'm wrong. I think the 285/75/17's would fit on a stock wheel.

a few things about Chrysler have become evident given the process we all have been through. Chrysler doesnt care about those of us that love their product. They know we'll always come back. there's no direct competition in the wrangler market. What they care about is selling more wranglers to first time wrangler buyers - which makes a lot of sense from a business standpoint. Its hard to believe the dealers can be so neglectful too. But i dont think they really care either. They sell a ton of these things, and the concept of a 'valued customer' is sooooo 1986. I spoke to my dealer the other day and mentioned to him that he made a mistake and ordered the wrong option for my 10A. His immediate response was 'well if you dont want it, i have 6 customers that will buy it right now'. My 10A will be my 5th Wrangler from this dealer. They dont care. It all almost makes me feel silly for each moment in this thread that i vented frustration about feeling unappreciated. Someone at Chrysler might read this thread once in a while, and some of the dealers do, but nothing will change as a result. i'll buy my 10A in a week or two and put that dealer in my rearview forever
What the hell is up with your dealer!? You should have him credit you the cost of the option that you do not want.

Good luck, the pictures look awesome.
The bracket was in the back. You have to drill the front. They said they would do it for me, I said nah I'll get it. They gave me the original deal with no problems.

Question for you guys that have your 10As, how good do you think these stock bumpers are? I know there steel but are the substantial, comparing to the after market, AEV ect.

Thanks

The picture I posted is not my 10A so I am not sure how long it took to actually arrive once it was released. My 10A was released 4/9 and is not scheduled to arrive until 4/22. According to the Vehicle Movement Information it will arrive in Kirby, TX on 4/17 sit for a week? I'll go get it! I'll keep you updated! I just keep buy stuff for "Her"......

Just rolled off the truck!!! Lift, tires and rims need to be installed possibly picking it up tomorrow. Dealer is 60 miles away so I won't see it until I pick it up. Pretty excited, looking forward to getting it dirty.

I Wish! My town is so small we don't even have a Jimmy John's. I live in a tiny little town in Cochise County, Southeast Arizona.

I honestly didn't know the 10A existed until about the middle of March when we were looking to trade in our '05 Rubi. After doing the numbers and realized we were going to have to wait on any Rubicon at all (Dealers never seem to keep them in stock in Arizona, at least with the options and color we want) we figured we should get the 10A.

The dealer said it would take 5 weeks, I figured he was being a little too optimistic; maybe not.

Black interior gets red switches, red interior gets black switches. Archer saw this back during some pilot builds and it's seemed to have stuck that way. I guess it's just a little surprise from Jeep.

Just noticed this... If you got the extra special long inspection, I'd lean toward being ecstatic. On my movement report, I was Built pending Inspection (I) at 10:41pm on 4/8. A mere 32 minutes later I was released by the plant for shipping staging (KZ) at 11:13pm. Yeah, I'm confident...confident I will have to be inspecting this closely myself for correct pieces and parts.

Otherwise, still sitting in KZL hell, waiting on the southeastern bound train I guess. If it hops one today, I have hope the estimated 4/17 delivery will hold true...

Good News and Bad News

Bad News:
I called IAMJEEP and despite moving into D1 overnight, they can't find my VIN number in the system now.
No estimated ship date.

Good News: I got to listen to a Fine Young Cannibals song playing on their phone system that I hadn't heard in years when they put me on hold for 5 minutes.
Oh, and she thinks its being built today.

Apparently mine shipped earlier this week. I'd be surprised if ours weren't together since they are going to the same dealer. I'm expecting it to arrive next week.
