I got the VON right away. I am not sure how you have an order without an order number. Then, Chrysler.com/vots is where to check. I was told by my dealer that it takes 4 weeks to show up here. Can anyone confirm this?

Newb question: VON stands for... ? (Vehicle Order Number? Vexing Ostrich Neck? Something in between?)

Just got off phone with dealer. I was about to order first Jeep wrangler unlimited, but was told only black interior was available. The black/dark saddle interior is on hold. As this is my first experience with Jeep and order process, is this true? I dont recall seeing a post on the, but there is so much info to read on this site, I might have missed it. Also as I'm likely to get the rubicon, should I get the 3:73 or 4:10? It will be an auto. Thanks for any insights!!!

When I ordered mine yesterday, the salesman showed me the ordering process and I saw that only the black cloth interior showed up on DealerConnect. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that it's actually the only available option-- the 3.73 was the only rear axle ratio available on DealerConnect for Rubicons for the first week or so, right?

Short version: Black interior is the only available cloth option on DealerConnect right now.

Does that mean / imply that saddle is available in leather?

So... after reading, and reading, and reading some more on forums I have decided on a color and edited my order today.... CRUSH!! I also made another decision in my endless quest, which is to change from hard top to dual top option, but the sales person is confusing me. I am ordering an Unlimited Rubi and she is asking if I want to add $300+ for the premium soft top... did I misread in this thread that the premium soft-top was standard on all of the Rubi dual tops? Also, how can I confirm that I will get a tinted soft-top vs. a non-tinted one? Thanks!

Thanks! The more I read this forum and the volume of info that this group is willing to share, the harder it is to reconcile responses that the dealer is providing. Maybe it's me, but I sure feel like I'm ordering blind at this time and am subject to limited insights as to all the 2013 options and related pricing. Am I alone with this feeling? Maybe this is the way that Jeep operates, with new models/ options & colors coming and going during the year.

Duh- I didn't realize you were asking about leather. As usual, Pat has saved the day.

No, you are not alone. I ordered mine back in May through Military New Car Sales, and even though they have submitted my order and taken my money, the only info that I can seem to get is from this forum. I assumed I would have more solid info from them by now, and I was holding my breath for a while there, but I guess I should just sit back and enjoy the wait from here on out Not that I have anything better to do, being in Afghanistan and all.

Not to white-knight Jeep or anything, but what kind of information were you expecting? They haven't even started building them yet, and sales/press release doesn't start until September... were you disappointed that there wasn't more information available at the time you placed your order?

I'm not sure what I expected, being my first time ordering a Jeep, or any vehicle for that matter. I knew they didn't have the info when I ordered it, but I figured I was the only one crazy enough to order with that little info, and that they would have to release more solid info as soon as the order banks opened in order for anyone to order them... guess I was wrong. Isn't the first time, sure as hell won't be the last.

Re-reading what I wrote, and wanted to clarify that I didn't mean to sound combative- damn internet makes it hard to get a handle on speaking tone... I was just wondering what kinds of information you were waiting on but it came out like "Well, what do you expect, you moron?" Sorry about that.

It's all good. Being that I ordered before the order banks opened, and there was absolutely no pricing info out yet, the way the program works is that I ordered at $1000 above 2012 pricing. However, if the price would have went up more than that (which wasn't likely) I would not have to pay more than that, but if the pricing was less it would come off the price of the vehicle. While this was the case, some of the options went up, so what I am really looking for is how much am I paying for the Jeep lol. I know the max amount it could be, but it should be lower and I am waiting to hear how much lower.

According to the Chrysler ordering system, from this point on only SOLD 2012's will be built. So any standing regular dealer orders that has NOT been picked up for 2012 will NOT be built. Only the SOLD pending orders will be filled.

Hey gump, you've not seen it in the sunshine...looks to be a pretty killer shade of green when you get sun on it...if you don't like it, so be it - but no need to slam it as some of us think it's a pretty awesome color.

Lately have split my time between Atlanta (Norcross), San Antonio, and Ft. Knox.
Knew someone who had all his Jeep service work at CarMax, Norcross. He said CarMax did great work and had the best prices.
CarMax they said they could not order a new Jeep. Then they could.
Priced new Jeeps. Other dealers had better prices (this could change).
For example of the 3 dealers recommended by USAA Buying Service, none were CarMax.

Wasn't this true as of the end of May, when 2012 orders closed? Or are you talking about something else?

We were going to trade in a vehicle at the time of buying. How does it work with ordering? We are going to go Saturday to order, trying to figure it all out.

Also does the color of the hard top make a difference with heat since it is white inside? Seems like it would work like the insulated/thermal curtains. I am deciding whether to do all white or true blue with black.
Thanks!

I did a trade-in. It's probably not the same at every dealership, but mine wanted to value/negotiate the trade-in before they put in the order. We came together on a price, and I agreed to buy the Jeep upon delivery at the purchase price, minus the agreed-upon trade-in value. Then I drove my trade-in home, and I'll continue to drive it until the Jeep shows up.

Strangely enough, I never formally agreed to reasonably maintain the present condition of the trade-in. I would have required that kind of agreement if I were the dealership, but they never even mentioned it. Obviously, if I show up to pick up the Jeep with a totaled ride, or having put 100,000 extra miles on, the deal would fall apart (see: basic principles of contract law) but it seems like I can just continue using it as my commuter vehicle for the next two months, and get the same price reduction upon delivery.

I'd be curious to hear if others had different trade-in/ordering experiences.

There are standing dealer orders out in the system that are for stock dealer inventory. Dealer Connect had dealer info today that just because a dealer had a Jeep on order and in the system, that if it is NOT A SOLD ORDER.....that it will not be built unless it is in production currently.

So, that means they are trying to get the last of the 12s OTD so they can retool. That might make the 2013 production a little faster. They are just going to cancel those 12s that weren't started yet, unless they are for specific customers.
