Sweet! I think we are both in for a nice treat. What ops did you get with yours? Keep us posted on production.

Because of work, I had to give it up for severe economic reasons. But for two years, all I saw was Jeep. Everywhere I went. This past year, I had enough and I knew It was time and I am giving up a nicely loaded '11 Outback that gets 30mpg and 21 city. I have never felt that way about any other vehicle I have owned in the 25 years I have been driving. I guess that says something.

Thanks! I saw your Sig, that is going to be one nice ride! I thought long and hard about Billet but I did not see one in all the places I have been. So I was a bit afraid to pull the trigger. So I went with what I was able to see on the lots. Truth be told, Black was also a strong pull.

Drove my Jeep home today ordered Sept 17. It's too cold to get too excited. I didn't even want to see the rundown they gave me. It was windy and frozen out. I want to drive it through a ditch or something. I spent around $15,000 on stuff while waiting. Now I have to get it all installed. Another $2000...

I went with the following:

430n
Heated cloth(going to cover with trek armor anyways otherwise it would have been leather)
Max Tow with 4:10 gears
Climate control
U connect
Remote start
Automatic trams
Last but not least a Giant Sunroof....LOL

I was going to go dual top but I really like the trek top NX with the fast back from Best Top and will order that for summer

Thanks. At least I have a little time to save for some Mods. Lift, wheels and tires first on my list. If I don't get it by Jan 31st it will cost me 500 bucks since I have a Chrysler cash certificate that expires then.

The going theory is that it's name specific. I tried calling once and they shut me down saying its like a lottery. Some say if you sign up for the brochure, there is a chance of getting one but not guaranteed. I signed up and hoping for the best :/

Give the $500 about one month from the time you received your brochure. I received the brochure a few weeks after submitting an online request, but it did not come with the $500 cash back incentive. Almost exactly one month later the $500 coupon showed up in the mail.

Hope I did good!

And this will return me to the fold after a 2 year hiatus when I had to give up my '08 Sahara. Everything I have read, I am in for a treat!
Nice. Very similar to mine. Here's a pic if you haven't seen one in that config

I don't know how I got mine. I didn't sign up for a brochure. The only thing I could think of is that my dealer had my name down from the numerous test drives and have my name to Chrysler for some reason. Mine isn't really even a certificate it just came in a brochure like packet with different jeep models in it with a note printed on one of the cards saying it was good for 500

They didnt have an estimated delivery date to the dealer yet but it sounds like they havent started building it yet. I also got a vots email again today saying the same thing " scheduled for production".....

Nice keep us updated. There is a CG JkUR on my dealers lot as we speak. Great color and I almost bought it but wasn't sure if the color was for me or not long term. All in all I am happy with DCR

Yes but not happy with cap one. I applied for 40k and they replied with approved only to find out it was for 30k @7.29%. Looks like I'll be shopping the local credit unions. I wanted to explore my options first anyways. I will have my JKUR CG even if I have to wait a month to be better funded.

How did you know the truck would be there?

Another question why trade the 12 for 13. Not much difference. Color?

Mine was in my driveway almost a week and it was still "Scheduled for Production". I'd call Jeep and ask what info they got.

i contacted iamjeep 1877-426-5337 (jeep cust service) once i saw on the VOTS tracking site (www.jeep.com/vots) that my vehicle i ordered was in shipment status.

the lady i spoke with said the most current information she had at that time was when it arrived at the rail yard, and the approximate date of arrival at the final rail destination... she guessed a shipment of the 3rd of december.

my dealer called me the minute they saw the truck pull up with a bright green unlimited .... i unfortunately missed the call. i have a friend who was cool enough to not only luckily pass by the truck in front of the dealer seeing a gecko jku on it, but he made a stop by my work to tell me he just saw my jeep being unloaded.

i did not know specifics on the truck delivery

--------------

on to the change... my '12 had a cylinder head issue at 5k miles, was fixed with the same potentially problematic head number and the sound was getting louder again. i did not want to go through another engine issue on the same vehicle again only 8k miles later. (the new premium top was another nice incentive)

the gecko green interested me when it was first going into production, but nothing prepared me for how awesome it looked in person. ever since i first saw one i kept thinking i had to trade before 12/14 production ended and whenever they cut the orders for them. i intend on owning this jeep for a very long time. i loved my 98 TJ, and i am loving the JK even more!
