Thanks! I have a feeling they are going try and sneak this sale under the EoM.

Anyway, lets see what goes on tomorrow

Congratulations! Unfortunately mine is still not here. 2 promised dates missed and not happy with my salesman. Not because the Jeep isn't here but he has promised to call me 3 different times regardless whether it was here or not and never called once. I have had to call him and he acts as if he is really busy and won't talk to me, has the sales manager talk to me instead. Sales manager is an awesome guy which is odd. I have spent more time in person and on the phone with the SM than my salesman. I think I am going to tell him what I think of his salesperson and let the chips fall where they may. As a Sales manager of a large beverage company myself, if my salespeople continued to make promises to customers without any follow through and i mean none, they would need to find another line of work quickly.

Sorry for the rant man. Truly congrats and enjoy. I will be joining you soon.

Yes. You will be joining soon! I know what you mean about the sales associate. Mine was no ball of fire. I was more proactive. It was funny because I was following along VOTS and IAMJEEP. The one email I got from my SA asked if anyone from the dealership been in contact with you about your Jeep. I said no. He then proceeded to say well the SM assumed I would be following along online. Well why did you ask me then?

Anyway I will see today what happens. Hopefully no surprises other than pleasant ones.

Happy New Year!

Most salesmen, not all, dont share the enthusiasm of the person who ordered a jeep. They want the commission and move on to the next sale. Keeping a customer updated for a jeep already under sales order doesnt earn him extra $$$. If you asked your salesman how long he has been there and where he came from, chances are he was selling another brand two years ago, and will not be selling jeeps a year from now. I bet you knew more about the jeep and options than the salesman.

Yep you guys are correct. I did all the follow up and knew much more about my purchase than he did. I was especially irritated last night after The third promise to call with no call. I'm over it now I just hate it when people don't do what they say they will do. Under promise over deliver is what they would be doing not the opposite.

Very Nice Wrz. I really like the painted fenders and black top. I tried to order my Rubi like that but they said it was all or nothing on the top and fenders for Rubicon. Still not sure if they were correct. I may take them to my buddy's body shop and paint the fenders, I assume they are the same material either way right. Happy New Year and Congrats. Been nice having you in the room to chat with.

Nice! Which grill insert did you go with? Don't forget the Mopar door sill guards. They are probably one of the cheapest mods you can do and they look fantastic and protect.

When I was shopping for one the Metalcrafters insert got my attention because of the quality build and that it is made in the USA. The price was holding me back.

I was Google searching for a sale on them and I found one on Craigslist from a private seller, new in box, for somewhat less than the price I'd found anywhere else. I had to drive over 300 miles RT to get it but he had some other "new in box" Wrangler stuff that I bought off him, too. Said he sold his Jeep before he had a chance to install it all.





Thanks for the reminder about the Mopar door sill guards. I was thinking about looking into that after reading about people's mods earlier today. That might have been your post. I like your choice of Wrangler colors.

Cool 2013 Rubi Unlimited

Placed an order for my second Wrangler in December & having never factory ordered a vehicle before I'm a little curious about the process. So far, the dealership hasn't being very forthcoming with information or status. It'll be 2 weeks (tomorrow) and I still can't get a VIN number out of them. I'm hoping it's mostly due to the holiday's and not a sign of things to come. I know about 877-iamJeep, but I need a VIN first.

@RoadiJeff - That's a really great grill insert. Do you have a link? After cutting up my hands fishing out leaves from the grill of my TJ for 8 years, I might be interested in something like this.

Quadratec sells the Metalcrafters Grill Insert. It's available in either black or chrome. Free shipping for forum members. You might try a Google search first and see if someone has one for sale on Craigslist or somewhere like I did. As I mentioned in the other message, they were selling it for a lot less than where I could find it at any aftermarket parts retailer online and it was new, still in the box.

On the waiting for a VIN, I went through the same thing. We ordered a Sahara on 12/07 and we never did receive any email from Chrysler, nor an update from our salesman or anything. Your dealer probably isn't giving you any additional information because Chrysler hasn't given them anything to tell you. The plant is closed for almost two weeks during the holidays so give it a little more time and you should start seeing some progress soon.

I was bored the other day while patiently waiting for our Sahara to be built and I decided to do another one of my dozen or so "Build Your Own" configurations on the Jeep website. I clicked on the "Search Inventory" link at the end of the process and one in particular caught my eye that was sitting on a dealer's lot about 40 miles away. It just happened to be the same dealer where we placed our order.

A few phone calls to negotiate the new price and we finally reached an agreement. They transferred our down payment over to the one in stock and we drove it home Monday night.

Thanks RoadiJeff! I'm sure the holiday is the major culprit, but it still makes me wonder since everything else I've read on this thread has folks getting their VIN assigned with in 2 days of ordering.

I'll take a glance at those Metalcrafters Grill Inserts, although they show them on a Rubicon w/ chrome wheels and low profile street tires?!?! For shame Metalcrafters. For shame!

Did you receive a VON from the dealer when you placed the order? You can use the VON with the Jeeps VOTS website and 877IAMJEEP.

@RedSectorA I called my dealer and got a VON from the sales manager this morning. I tried using their site, https://www.jeep.com/vots, but got an error so I called 877-iamJeep. The could find the VON but they could not find any data associated to it and suggested that I give it a few more days and call back.

Hopefully everyone in this thread will get an update by the end of the week. The plant should be open again today following the holiday shutdown. Mine has been sitting in inspection since 12/21 and I'm getting anxious.

@StuntDriver That sucks! Please keep the updates coming, hope you get it soon and they give you some [legitimate] reasons for the delays.

Damn. Keep the faith. I know it's of little consolation, but when it does arrive, it's worth it.

Thanks!

Something is messed up with their system I would think as I just went to the dealer with the title for my trade and Rick (salesmen) says to me "It's here, arrived 30 minutes ago" I was all like O_o then he asked if I wanted to see it.. well yeah! it was very dirty from the trip and was on a lift for inspection.

All in all very happy it is here, should get it Friday after they apply the Midwest protection package. Would have taken a pic but the daughter had my phone playing games. Might sneak one through the window later tonight.

I will definitly check there after I ask them to show me where it is if they can find it

Just swung by there just a bit ago and they had it out back with a dealer plate left on it. Guessing they went and filled it up before doing all the prep and whatnot. Opened the door and it had 16 miles on it.
