B4Real,

I am curious to know what your experience is with the dealer and the $500 bonus cash.

I got mine in the mail yesterday and am still waiting for delivery, but I am anticipating the dealer giving me crap about it because we already negotiated a price.

We also negotiated a trade-in value like you, so I am curious to know if you get any problems from your dealer.

Maybe I am just being overly worrisome.

Very excited, I'm picking my Jeep up this afternoon — only 11 weeks from order to delivery.

Anyone have any good advice on dealer rustproofing? Is it worth it?

I've been struggling with this as some suggest it, others say just wash it twice a month in the winter, and still others swear by aftermarket services like Krown. I'm in Ontario, so winter roads are full of salt and dirt. I'm leaning towards not getting the dealer to do it, and just keeping it clean as possible. That being said, my 93 YJ had it done and I had no rust issues over a decade.

We placed our order on a Gecko JKU in early October and picked it up two days ago! Our dealership here in Tulsa was wonderful to work with and they gave us a brand new 2 door jeep off the lot for 2 weeks of that waiting period! Gave us a chance to play around before ours got here but i'm sure glad to be in our 4 door.

Placed my order today. Or at least the salesman that places orders said he will. I told him all my options and he printed them on the "configuration preview" with the pricing and I got a copy. But I walked out of the office to talk to a salesman that I've dealt with. Someone else walked into the office, so I didn't go back in. My salesman said they have all my info from my Grand Cherokee purchase and he said he was going to have the order guy input all my info into the order. He said the order won't go through, but he'll send it anyway. 24R was on restriction, which I'm guessing means I have to wait for next month's allocation. I didn't stick around, but will call later. No deposit. From what he told me, they usually do ask for a deposit, but they know me already.

I'll follow up with them tonight. What exactly do I need to ask or see to insure the order went in under my name? I mentioned VOTS to the order guy and he had no idea what I was talking about. He said he puts in all my info and email and that I should get updates on the build.

Wish my dealer would let me have a loaner while I wait!

Wisconsin even treated me to some snow on my first ride home.

Here is a quick shot I took right outside the door at Fields.

I picked up my Jeep two weeks ago.... today I got two brochures from Chrysler, both with the $500 certificate. Has anyone received the deal or got a refund after they picked up their Jeep?

Yes, I too got a $500 certificate right after I bought my new JKUR. Took it to the dealership and they said the deal is done. Would have liked to have that $500 off the price.

I called Jeep incentives line, they mentioned I was qualified for the $500 mailer, and gave me the info to give to my dealer. They also said that if the dealer gave any flack then just call them back and they'd do the transaction through them and not the dealer. Called the dealer and next day they called back saying to come get the check. This was all about a week and a half after delivery of my Jeep, and the actually catalog with the coupon didn't show until a week later after that. Call Jeep.

No questions asked, they just took and applied the bonus cash coupon and even gave me an additional 1K on our trade.

Order my new 2013 JK rubicon last night and now the waiting beings. Chrysler helped get me out of my 2010 Islander that has a water leak that can't be found or fixed. It took 3 months of back and forth but its done now. They are going to try and "Hot Tag" the new one to get it built faster.

Iím not anticipating it being any quicker but I appreciate the gesture after having all the problems with the water leak on the 2010.

I also tried to order yesterday, but 24R was on restriction. They took the order but it won't actually start production until the next allocation. My understanding. JKUR auto.

I see that you ordered the day after I did and received the same info on 8 NOV stating "you are scheduled for production". I am curious as to what you ordered and when you were notified if the estimated delivery date. I have not received any further information since the initial production scheduled email. Patience is not a virtue I seem to possess regarding a new Jeep. Any info would be appreciated.

Nov 3 Ordered
Nov 8 Production scheduled per the VOTS website.
Nov 10 Went to dealer and got the VIN number
Nov 14 Called IAMJEEP and they gave me the estimated ship date
Nov 27 Estimated Ship date

I haven't recieved a single email from Jeep about the order. So i've been calling to get updates.

I ordered the following

2013 2dr Wrangler Sport S = Billet Color
3.73 gears
Black 3 piece hardtop
Tow group
Manual Transmission
Power convenience Group

Hope that helps

I appreciate the info. I haven't had much luck with IAMJeep. They basically tell me the same thing that VOTS shows and state they don't have the ability to see and more info. My order does differ quite a bit being that I ordered a JKUR but the info was helpful. I think I will give them a couple more days then start hounding. Again thanks.

I didn't have much luck with IAMJEEP until a few days after i got the VIN. Do you have a VIN yet? If not, contact your dealer.

I relieved my VIN back on 8 NOV with the email stating that it was being scheduled. Ironically I just got another email from Jeep stating that it has been scheduled to start within the next 2 weeks. Almost sounds like the first email I received. Nonetheless I plan on calling this afternoon I see if anyone is able to pull an estimated ship date. As with everyone with one on order I am an info junkie right now. I find it amazing that you can order a $4 socket from Lowes and know exactly where it's at all the time but a $35-40k Jeep is a toss-up and varies from order to order.

Just gave IAMJeep another whirl and got an estimated ship date of 29 NOV. That'll hold me over for a while now.

Hi all,

Placed an order for a JKUR early this month and have my VON and VIN. According to vots, production is scheduled. I called IAMJEEP and they confirmed what vots was saying.

The spec list is:
Black
6sp
4.10 gearing
Dual Top
730w
Connectivity Group
Auto Air
Max Tow
Heated Seats

My first two cars were an 89 XJ and a 00 XJ, and I'm looking forward to being back in a Jeep after a couple of impractical sports cars.

Hi all,

Nov 2nd - ordered JKUS - true blue / manual
Nov 8th - Received email saying production scheduled + vin
Nov 16th - no further updates / called IAMJeep - said order was at the gate Nov 15 - which I interpreted as production is imminent (i.e should start in the next couple of days). No further info was available.

anxiously waiting....

I had the same complaint when waiting for mine. I fooled my new iPhone from China, but my 10x priced Jeep that was 8 hours away was in a black hole...
