Out of curiosity - anyone take delivery of a 6 speed yet? I think I've only seen pics of the automatics thus far

URGENT: for all of you that still need to pick up your 10A.

Carefully check the bottom lip of your hardtop! Mine is cracked, I'm sure it occurred at factory, no other marks on the Jeep anywhere but the cracked area, even looks like a bit of touch up paint used. It is on the passenger side about three or four inches back!

The other areas of concern are rough paint areas at the bottom front and rear areas of the door frames. Mostly all around the lip around the openings for the door.

Not sure what I can do about the issues with quality control, wish mine had the extended inspection!!

Sent a couple pics to dealer.

Recommendations?

You sound surprised. It is a Chrysler product after all.

I added a punchlist tab for the issues people are seeing at pickup. Populated what I could remember off the top of my head.

The increased weight can over time break/crack the welds and put stress on the stock hinges. Are you planning on using the stock carrier? If so you might want to search for a Teraflex or something like the AEV to get the weight off of the tailgate. I can't speak from personal experience but from what other have said on this forum I opted to get a different carrier for these reasons.
I do have the Procal, dropped it off at the dealer yesterday, seems pretty straight forward.
Yes I initially planned to use the stock carrier until we know which carrier will fit the plug on our 10A's. will the AEV one work?

Could you add what the dash plate should say? Was it just tire information that was off?

Just looking at the spreadsheet, folks who ordered between January 21-Feb 2 are the largest group still waiting for jeeps. I tried to order 1-25 but ended up ordering 1-28 and still in D1. I rushed to order because there had been 2000 orders placed by 1-24 and I was afraid of a sellout. So there are probably several hundred jeeps still ahead of me, even though several later orders have been delivered. My estimated shipped date was yesterday, 4-13-13. So it is what it was explained... An estimate. But thanks to folks posting their pics and mods I can't afford, I can live vicariously through this thread!

AEV says theirs will work, they were installing on a 10A when I talk to them about it.

We have the exact same config (except i have a painted hard top - which im going to assume shouldnt make a difference here, and actually, i would guess black tops would go out first because they prob have a billion of them in a pile at the factory)

we def found a pattern with red seats and manual trans. they went 'last'. My order date was 1/20, and im already in shipping - its on a train now, so im curious why youre a D1 with an earlier order date. luck of the draw perhaps.

Would love some sort of information from Chrysler on mounting winches in this bumper - what are you seeing in the bumper?
I'll be opening the bumper up later this week. Essentially there is no plate behind the bumper for winch mounting. The bumper has an opening in it for the fairlead and is smooth on the back side of that.

It appears there will be a plate needed between the frame rails for mounting the winch. It's similar to a C-channel steel bumper mounted on a standard rubicon, with a special steel skid beneath it.

I'll need to find or fab a plate between the frame rails for winch mounting. As far as instructions from Chrysler, I've yet to even find instructions on the removable bumper end caps. They are easy enough to figure out with no instructions, but the way manufacturers usually are with overkill on instructions, I figured there would be some info. No info on the front bumper at all with any of the paperwork or in the printed owners manual I requested from Jeep.

I ordered on 1/17/13 but my vots "official order date" said 1/30/13 not sure why. I sat in "scheduled for production" D or D1 (not sure which) for like 3 weeks. I checked vots once a day for updates. On 4/8/13 my vots went from waiting for production to shipped! Thats all I know at this point. My dealer doesnt know shit... Vots said expect two weeks for shipping. I live in MA I'm hoping a week or less... Black/Red 4dr manual...

Not only do the dealers know nothing, mine knows nothing and lies. I called him for an update and he said 4/29 was the expected delivery date to the dealership. I called IAMJEEP and the woman told me the delivery date was 4/22. She said there was nothing in any system that referenced 4/29. So this ahole sales guy thinks if he tacks on a week they'll look better when it gets in 'early'. what a moron. its a flat out lie that only makes him and the dealership look like fools. There isnt any good reason to lie to a customer, and this is perhaps the most pointless lie imaginable in this situation - esp when the truth is easily found.

My dealer sends me actual screenshots of what he sees is his system. Looks like my ETA just got moved up by 10 days.

This bad boy is sitting on my dealer's lot.



Unfortunately, a hail storm victim. Not sure if you can make it out but there is a dimple just above the bright sun glare. The hood was hammered by the hail, probably a couple dozen dimples in it. There were crews there today lining them up for "repair". I hope like hell to pick mine up the same day it arrives.



This was my first experience putting eyes on a 10A. I likey. Congrats to everyone who has taken delivery.

Ok here are a couple of pics of my cracked hard top lip from factory!

It bums me out, guess we are past the six date, now the relationship is real! :-). Still love my 10A.

It is on the passenger side.

Tire info only was wrong.

Should say 265/70-17 BF GOODRICH KM2

Mine and the other incorrect ones have: 255/75-17 BF GOODRICH KM,

I know of mine and one other like this, anybody else?
