2013 10th Anniversary JKUL

The first and last delivered could be interesting, it seems like they are all (a bunch of them anyways) being delivered all at once
My 10A JKUL order was placed 03-22 and today is scheduled to ship 04-25.... not to shabby, I feel sorry for those that oredred in January, What a long wait..

I was told they can be ordered individually if need be. They have their own part number, but I can't seem to find them for sale anywhere. So dealer might have been full of it.

lift installed

My dealer just sent me this picture with the lift kit and tires installed. (2.5" AEV, 35"x12.5" KM2). I pick it up tomorrow afternoon!

Any others lifted yet??

I thought all of the early orders had been built and either delivered or were on the way. Just thought that many of you were so excited to be getting your 10A that you just forgot to update the checklist with delivery and ship dates.

I ordered a month after those of you who have been waiting since January, and now I see where those who ordered in March are even getting anxious. Can't imagine why the early January orders are not built and on the way to you by now.
Probably extremely poor Wrangler Forum etiquette to quote your own post, but I don't care.
VOTS shows my 10A is in Paint!
The customer service lady confirms its in paint and then says it is in the shipping procees based on another screen she has. She gave me a estimated delivery date of May2, "but no promises"
Finally, real movement
For those of you from January that are still not built, there must some commonality that is holding up your order?? I really feel for those that ordered way ahead of me but stuck in D-1, but glad mine is moving.

Hey Jeff, maybe I will make the same train as yours????

I have been in shipped state since 4/3, IAMJEEP says it will not ship to the 23rd, and to call my dealer. Dealer's website has it listed there, states intransit. I like my dealer. Fiat can go to hell. I am not even sure I will take mine even if it does show up.

Bob K, a member of the 1/15 order club. And have come to realize it means squat.
I have 4 wranglers in the drive. I reckon I am done with Fiat-Chrysler now.

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.
Lucasd, any update on your lift install? I can't wait to see how it looks! Just left the dealer and mine should be in Friday! Did you say the dealer is putting your AEV carrier on? And where did you find the best price for it? Thanks!

Also threw on a few decor mods I took of my '12.

Congrats to all those who've finally gotten their 10As!

Either way, I found out that my 10A is out if 'I' purgatory today. So it took me 10 days to get through it. The estimated delivery date is 24 APR. Is it way later than I would like? Absolutely... But at least it's before May. Just in time for Gov't furloughs!
Can I get one of those special inspections please!!!

Here is the "BLACK" Gorilla spline drive kit, it included three extra nuts for the spare tire. Quadratec has them for like 42.00 plus free shipping for forum members.

Man,that's a nice looking Jeep! Did you order the AEV Wheels or did the dealer? My dealer doesn't want to deal with AEV parts. Like to know what kind of drive it is at 70mpr.

Anvil looks great with these Wheels. Tires look great too.

Finally my 10AU has shipped. Hopefully I will get it this week. The dealership has a few winches on sale and was looking for some advice. They have 4 models, xd9000i, 9.5xp, m8000, and the 9.5ti thermometric. Anyone have any recomendations or opions on these? Also, any news out there on the 10th anniversary jeep winch?

I know my dealer can turn around and sell mine for 27 - thats the market for mine right now. So thats the logic i take into the dealership - how much do they need to make on that sale? they dont need to make 4k profit on it. they should be happy making 2k on something that will sell fast. im holding out for 25k or im selling it myself. i have it on car websites now, and if it doesnt sell by this weekend, when i pickup my 10A, i'll being forking 40k cash for it, which i dont really want to do, but screw the dealership if 2k profit isnt enough for them on a trade.
Just remember what sales tax is worth at 7 to 8 percent on 23,500 that's where the dealership makes out people will trade for that so they don't wind up paying sales tax on the 23,500 which would be about the difference, just my 2 cents. I always kept my jeeps in real nice shape and would always have someone tell me well ill give you what the dealership is giving you and I would always have to remind them that's fine but you will also have to pay the 7 or 8 percent sales tax that I would be paying on that additional 23,500. I know it's not fair LOL

Going to dealer tomorrow about the cracked top. Also about the rough paint areas.

I will provide the good or bad of my experience. Social media .... a two edged sword.

Totally hear you...

as long as you play that tax break to your benefit. the dealers will always use that tax calculation to get you to accept less for trade. you should always get as much as possible for your trade - dont even let them talk tax, and then use that tax savings as a benefit for buying your new 10A. that our tax benefit, not theirs!

OH BOY!
I like this......
I may just have to ask my dealer to do something for me too!
Can you PM me what you paid for this entire setup?

How are the KM2? Are they loud tires? I have only ever used Toyo MT and Nitto Trail and they are quite for MT tires

Can you remove the end caps of the rear bumper?

I'm sure you can, just by a bolt or something. I rather not, might try just to secure it some other way.

Just to clarify what I wrote earlier, the rust that was found was just on the underbody, not at the end cap area, I saw that I might now have separated the two topics.
