Yeah - I am in Frame! :-)

Looks like my order started build today! (Dealer mentioned early in week that his view shows ship date of 7/23).

Just called the 1877IAMJEEP number because my status hasnt changed in VOTS..... It was scheduled for build the 25th of last month and is still showing up as D status. They are going to talk to a supervisor but cant call me back because I dont have a return number. As long as its done and delivered by Sept 1st.

Some of you have mentioned that your dealer is telling you that the 2013 model year vehicles do not qualify for the Affiliate Rewards Program. So here's proof that all 2013s do qualify.


To: All U.S. Chrysler Group Dealers

Subject: 2013 MY Incentive Announcement

As 2013 MY vehicles begin to arrive on your lots, effective today, they are now included in the following programs:
Affiliate Rewards (Employee Purchase, CDI, Friends, Affinity Rewards, etc.)
July Volume Growth Program (including Fast Start Bonus which ends today)
July Sales Professional Programs
TDMs

I thought I had read somewhere that the Wrangler factory wasn't going to be shutting down this summer.

Cool. Just to follow up, you still think we won't be seeing other incentives for 2013 like college graduate, conquest, or military?

It seems I may never enjoy the wonders of VOTS It seems yet again ENCS has failed me and did not put my email into the system. I called the I am Jeep number to see what the issue was but they seemed confused as to why I would rather use VOTS than call them repeatedly. Does anyone know of anyway to sign up for VOTS after the fact??

If you have your VON, couldn't you just go to the VOTS website, enter in your last name and your VON?

I'm just glad it wasn't built on a Monday ... Although I'm sure that's just an old wives tale...

QUESTION: how long before 1st service? A friend recommended to change the oil at 100 miles or so to remove any debris from factory... I need advice

I wish it was that simple. The only number I was supplied was the VIN and when I enter my last name and the last 8 numbers of the VIN it tells me one of the two is invalid, yet IamJeep says that the spelling of the name and the VIN is correct.

Hmmm ... my VON is on the POC from the dealership; if it isn't on your copy, can you call the dealership to get your VON? Or for that matter, Jeep should be able to give it to you when you're callling to check on the status.

Of course, that won't solve the problem if it ends up giving you the same error when entering your VON. I can't believe there's no way Jeep can enter your email/sign you up themselves.

Congrats! Ya know how they snap your picture when on a roller coaster? I think they should do the same at the factory. That would be too cool to get pictures of your actual Jeep being built.

Man I don't quite get how Jeep queues vehicles for production. That looks like my setup, with only main differences being color and where I'm located. I don't get mine started for another 3 weeks.

Just by luck, I started the process on 6/6... But the order was placed with down payment on 6/13... I had the dealer build a sport and a rubicon so I could compare.. Then went all in on the rubi... Maybe that helped???

Imagine the lawsuit when the build photo shows a missed weld on a vehicle that crashes or needs major warantee work that is denied...

Well, on top that, they don't even show the correct FACTORY on VOTS - so...

Thanks!

Nice setup- I have the same order date, same color, same top, power, and towing, and mine is still scheduled to start on 8/2. Mine's a Sport JKU. Maybe we could figure out some rhyme or reason to the order they build them, but it's probably too complex to reverse-engineer with what little info we have.

Keep us updated- we're all excited to see the 2013 as early as possible.

Just called and it appears my scheduled "Load on Rail Car" is 7/24 and that's with the Leather option. Seems they had enough of it to build some of the 2013s with Leather. My order was placed on 6/8:

JKUR - Gecko
Manual
Hard top
Leather

They build out in one color and start production in another. It's typically Silver or White for Buildout and Black for ramp up or start of new production. So it's visual and quality control. All major mfg's follow this process.

Quick question. I am trying to preorder now through a dealer and I just want to verify some information.

Using the TL number I get 1-percent below invoice. However, when do the rebates/bonus's get applied? Are rebates that are available now or rebates during time of delivery that you are eligible for?

I seem to be getting a few different answers from the dealers I am working with.

There are no incentives for 2013 wranglers yet.

Also, just to nitpick (because I'm excited!) it's not a "preorder" because they just started production!!!

To answer your question "are rebates taken at the time of order, or time of delivery?"
Short Answer:
There are 3 Options: Order, Anytime in between, and Delivery
Long Answer:
Chrysler's incentives are written so the customer can take the rebates (if price protected in their rules) at the time of order, OR at the time of delivery or whichever is more beneficial. The only thing you can't do is combine them. For instance if there was a $500 Bonus Cash at order and then 0% for 60 came out at delivery. (Now we know that probably won't happen on Wrangler) but if it did you can't combine them. You must choose which is more beneficial. The other thing is technically if you resign a buyer's order mid-way you can take the rebate that came out mid-way but may not have been available at order or delivery.

Huh. That is what one dealer said yet another said there where college, military, and a non-chrysler lease they could apply if I qualified.

Is there a lock in at some point? Or this month I say I want x and next month a better incentive comes out can I then change? I presume that would be a resign....

Alright, I am getting pretty jealous over some of you that will be getting your new 2013 Jeeps in the next couple weeks. I hope those of you that get the first 13's have good cameras, because tons of pictures will be anxiously awaited by many in this thread. Personally, I am curious to see pics of the new interior, and to hear how comfortable/uncomfortable the new seats are.
