Archer, any hints on what those other surprises/neat little things on the 10A are?

Let me know if you want to sell the wheels. I'm in SC.

Anyone else order Black/Red with a color matched hardtop??? If not, let me know when it's being built Archer...easy to pick out (Ha). Anyone have any idea if stuff like grab handles will come with the 10A, haven't heard any mention of them.

Maybe they will add the tail light guards a few of the early reports, like Motor Trend, talked about back in November.

I was pricing them at the dealer and they go for $170. Would be nice if they were included already since it is after all a special edition RUBICON.

I saw that article also, but haven't seen them in any pictures. I have seen the grab handles in the front, but they may have just added them for that road test.

the grab handles were on the list of features that are included with the 10A. I am referring to the comprehensive list of features that Pat posted to the forum a while back (like page 23 or something).

The tail light guards were not on the list.

I think that posting referred to the grab handle with the logo around the glove box area.

For the people that selected black seats....... we have been advised that there will be NO red stitching on the interior, how about the red accents on the exterior? I for one would actually prefer not to have the red accents. I know the red accents are part of the 10a package but they would almost look like an afterthought or out of place with black seats.

Since we have not seen a 10a with black seats yet I guess it will be unknown until one has been delivered?

Can't comment based on Pat's post (sorry don't feel like digging around to find it) but the grab handle that is listed on features and on build sheets refers to the dash grab handle on the passenger side. It's not talking about actual roll bar grab handles. On that same note, I think that most 4dr wranglers come with a set of roll bar grab handles anyways.

I was hoping they would be included as well! The Moab edition comes with them, youd think the 10A would. They are $$ to add fron the dealer

Anyone have a guess as to when we will see a D-1 status on a 10A?

I've had VIN since 1/17, I know production isn't supposed to start until 3/4 but wonder if any D-1 status will show up earlier.

RICHINBOCA,

given all the posts in this thread about how to get the best deal, i hope none of us are paying more than 1% below invoice. i didnt have discounts but found this info in the forum:

1) Become a Member of Tread Lightly! Do the $100 membership (minimum for this discount) Tread Lightly – Individual


2) Visit www.chrysleraffiliates.com or call (888) 444-4321 to learn more about the program and to obtain your Control Number. You’ll need the Tread Lightly! Company Code, which you will receive in your Tread Lightly! membership letter upon joining or renewing (The membership letter will be in your membership packet which is mailed out each Friday).

3) Take your Control Number, along with the letter you received in your membership package to any U.S. Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge dealership. You MUST have your Tread Lightly! membership letter in order to receive the discount. If you have lost your letter, please email treadlightly@treadlightly.org. to request a replacement.

4) Ask for a copy of the vehicle invoice, and you’ll see the Preferred Price (PP) clearly listed. To see how much you can save, check out this sample pricing (prices will vary according to current incentives).

5) drive away with your 10A for a sweeeeeeeeet price.

I was lucky and got about 3% below, kept working dealers against each other. After it is released I am sure buyers will be paying less than us, but its all about having it first, right!

It's ALWAYS about having it first!

But I'm going to make a presumption and say that after it's released and any that dealers are lucky enough to have for stock go MSRP, and in many (not all) cases dealers put a mark-up on them because of being "limited editions."

Actually, I think folks will be paying MORE than us after these are released. They are limited editions, there will not be another 10th anniversary of the Rubicon, and once the jeeps are seen in person, dealers have the upper hand because folks will want them right then. My dealer charged me below invoice at the start and we worked it down to about 3.8% below invoice and no deposit. They know they can sell the 10A any day of the week.

Any of you offer to the dealer to leave his 10a in the showroom for sometime in exchange for a better price? I know you are all waiting for it. I'm also waiting for my Dune JKUR! But if my dealer had offer me to keep it in the showroom for someting like 2 or 3 weeks in exchange of a $1k or $2k rebate, maybe I would consider it.

I was referring too the data tag when i said that. Owning a 1946 cj2a I thought the data tag was pretty damn sweet. Others may not agree.

Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up.

The data tag IS pretty sweet! I'm happy with it as is. But numbering the 10A would be even better! I work for the government and might get furloughed by the time the 10 is delivered...but I will sell cans from the side of the road for the 10A! LOL

I offered this and they laughed. I actually got piled up on by the general population here because apparently this is completely out of line. If I ran a dealership I would offer 500 bucks to keep it in my showroom and entice a few upsells from it.
