Well, I also joined the ranks today...

I ordered a 2013 JKUR Commando! I hope I like the color, this is the first vehicle I have ever bought without seeing the actual color FIRST. I had been contemplating Rock Lobster, but it seemed even riskier than Commando to do sight unseen.

Anyway, time to start shopping Mods, lots of Mods to follow!

Don't type it in, you may have missed something. Just click here:

I just tested it and it took me to the correct site

It was the native browser on my tablet. I used a different browser and it worked. I'm in ' Production Scheduled' stage.

That can last for a while. In fact, if you are like most of us, you will stay there and then drop on down to shipment almost immediately. A long wait but very worth it!

Drove off the lot yesterday at 8pm with just 22 miles on the odometer (15 miles I put on driving it Monday morning as it came off the truck!).....as of 6pm today.....122 miles and I'm only 3 miles from the dealer.

This Jeep is like no other Jeep I have ever owned. Its fast, for a Jeep, smooth and so much fun to drive!! The other Jeeps were fun too, but this is different. Big thanks to Mike and Vince at Videon Jeep and Dodge for getting this thing to me in 20 days from order.

I know everyone has seen plenty of the True Blues already, but here is a quick pic. Hitting the road tomorrow for a nice long slow and fast fun ride to the wife and kid at the beach....

Well, it'd be nice to know but it'll happen when it happens. I'm losing a lot of amenities in the truck I'm getting rid of. Feel like it'll be worth it, but will be a tough transition. First time offroading might help...

Time to play the waiting game, just submitted an order for a 6 speed True Blue JK. Dealer estimated 6-8 weeks for delivery, is that a fairly accurate wait?

My first time off road in my 12 was painful. I put some small dents in the oil pan. After i put on skid plates, oh boy so much fun. Not a care in the world. Cant wait for the 13 to come in, another Jeep to break in on the rocks.

White JKUR arrived (pics)

Ok. Here is the run-down:
- Dealer offered 1% below dealer invoice. I provided Tread Lightly affiliate code anyway in order to get slush mats thrown in for free. Affiliate code's have a $75 processing fee - I had to catch this and get them to take it off.
- I calculated my own sales tax - 6.25% - they had the number wrong.
- I got the $500 current student discount (masters)
- I traded in a truck, which reduced taxes
- I pushed back on documentation and inventory fee (the jeep didn't reside in inventory, and I hadn't agreed to $175 in documentation when making the order - finance guy dropped price $100, which also saved $6 in taxes.
- I took off every piece of shipping plastic myself - odometer said 15 miles.
- Minor damage to a seat belt clip - no biggie, I'll have them fix it.
- I used photosynth.com to try to create a panorama - didn't come out too good, but whatever: 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon - Photosynth
- I uploaded all my pictures to Google here (hi res):
http://bit.ly/PwCoQV
- I took a video of my first time inside the vehicle - dealer did no prep:

I just read an article today that said white just beat out silver as the most popular vehicle color in the U.S. I can see why looking at your new Rubicon.

But as good as it looks it can't hold a candle to that cute "model" that is showing us the new Jeep! Congratulations

I haven't seen that many so thanks for posting! I looked for one while I was picking mine up yesterday but they didn't have one. I asked the salesman and he said I just missed two of them....

Well, called 1-877 yesterday and according to Becky, my Jeep was supposed to be shipped out that very day after sitting on the ramp for 2 weeks. I will call later today and see if any more info is available. I need to get this thing here so I stop ordering parts to ease the pain! Spent another $200 last night on a trunk box thing!
Anyone heard from keschete since the storm past through? Hope she made it through with minimal damage!

Thank you. I had a tough time walking away from it this morning in the parking garage at work. I normally eat in the cafeteria but think I will be going out to lunch today ;-)

I haven't, was wondering about her; hope everything is ok!

And I hope your jeep gets there soon, can't believe it's just been sitting for 2 weeks!

Dolphin Browser is what worked for me.

Does anyone think I could sell the stock tires back to the dealer before I take delivery, so I can order new ones and have them put on the stock wheels? And, do you think they would give a fair price?
