Maybe at the end of the month the dealerships are more agreeable?

Would be nice to have a sticky listing the dealers that are willing to to go the Affilate Rewards route.
Almost all dealers honor the program, some try to play hardball on new model year vehicles or limited supply vehicles. The dealers that don't are just losing business. AR deals are quick easy deals that count toward the dealers quota and even though they aren't high profit, doing AR deals is still advantageous to the dealer. 1 it counts toward the monthly quotas and 2 the more we sell the more we get allocated.

Pat,

When you have the information, would you please post a part number for those new 17" Rubicon wheels?

Do you think that the interior LED's will be available as a Mopar kit upgrade later on?

I'm glad I stopped by this thread when I did! Lot's of new goodies on the 2013's! Diggin' the new seats on the Rubicon too!

Thank you!

X2, the only time I ever hear of a dealer not participating around here is special edition vehicles like the Artic, Altitude, Call of Duty.

Soon most dealers will be out of 2012 Grand Cherokees and dealers might try to hold more profit on them. Here is Chicago-Land, 6 cylinder overlands and limited Grand Cherokees are hard to get so I am guessing some dealers might decide not to honor the program. Luckily we have a pretty large inventory of GCs and we discounting the heck out of them to hit our quotas. And yes I am discounting 2012 Wranglers big time too. Pretty much Chrysler Employee Price on all new in stock vehicles excluding Call of Dutys and SRT vehicles.


Basically if a dealer tells you no find another dealer. One thing about Wranglers is they aren't a limited production vehicle and the larger dealerships will play ball.

Pat, one final question on the Affiliate Reward Program. Are people allowed to use that discount with jeeps they custom ordered from you, or is it only given to existing inventory on hand? I am getting close to purchasing my first jeep wrangler, and the dealers around where I live (Wichita, KS) do not want to discount much at all. So I am also quite curious about this affiliate program. Thanks

Yes you can use it on in stock vehicles, dealer trades and orders.

YES ! the Jeep Dealer in Concord, NH
Stopped in because we were next door at the Harley Dealership.
We are looking for a White Unlimited and he had one on the lot.
Loaded more than I wanted and did not have some of the
MUST HAVES that I wanted. So he does a search but I already
did and he found the same one I did down in NJ. He says we
can get it shipped up here for you but as soon as I told him my
company has the Chrysler discount he then says ....
Sorry we do not accept it. Needless to say we just got right up
and I said ... Guess we are done and we walked right out the door.
He was an arragant butthead anyway ... lol ....
Also dealership was 60 miles away and the one I already took a
demo ride at is 20 miles away and does accept the program
Rob .....

When does the Jeep site get changed over to 2013? Around August?

I just want to know when I can start playing with my 2013 options instead of 2012.

I heard elsewhere that there was no 4.10 gears option for auto Rubicons. This seems highly suspect, but could someone verify that you will still be able to get that axle ratio?

Also, do you have to put any money down when ordering? And could someone validate that you can still get the 4.10 gears?

The dealer I talked to said we would have to pay a $500 deposit. He also said that during the time it took to deliver the vehicle, if we found what we wanted elsewhere or changed our mind, he would refund us the $500. He was that certain that he would be able to sell the Jeep we would have ordered.

cmiller,

We bought our 2012 Gecko Unlimited Rubicon from Davis-Moore and had a very positive experience. We also bought our 2011 Grand Cherokee from them as well.

Reardon's Jeep in Monroe, WA would not place an order for a 2013 JKUR with my Affiliate pricing.

I just got back from placing my order for a 2013 JKUR auto and 4.10 gearing was not something the dealer could order. They told me they could only order with a manual transmission.

Just a question for you guys ordering. How does financing work? Rates at my credit union are really low right now but I'm sure they will move by the time the Jeep is actually delivered. Can you lock in your rate on the deal?

So our computers are really old and no matter how hard I try I can't get it all to line up.

Annoying...

We bought our 2012 Gecko Unlimited Rubicon from Davis-Moore and had a very positive experience. We also bought our 2011 Grand Cherokee from them as well.[/QUOTE]

Did Davis Moore work with you much on price on your Rubicon? I was in the other day and they were just real up front and honest that they cannot keep up with demand right now and are not moving much on price. The fact that a large dealership like that currently has one new four door wrangler on hand led me to believe they were being pretty honest with me. I like Davis Moore and they would be my first choice if I bought local. I would also consider Parks in Augusta. I have not had a good experience with the Stevens group, and will not consider buying from them. Thanks

Waiting for confirmation, when I go into the system it tells me 4.10 is optional on auto but it doesn't give me the 4.10 as an option I can order.

2013 on order.

I went in to order a 2012 the day after ordering closed. So today I finally got to put in my order for a 2013 Gecko JKUR. Stoked. Thank you for all the info that has been posted here. It has been fun to watch as the confusion has cleared up! Thanks to Milous and Pat and all the other contributors. I ordered my jeep from Bill Luke Jeep in Phoenix, just because that is what my situation dictates. But had i not had access to a good dealer I would have certainly ordered one from Pat.

Where is the 2013 waiting room thread?
