2014 JK Closeout year pricing - Who has the lowest?
I'm looking to buy a stripped down JK Sport (A/C is the only add on as I live in Florida). I tear everything off it to customize it the way I want it so I only buy bare bone Jeeps.
I saw this post on a different thread:

=19,500 + tax
I've called around and can't find anything even close to this. $22,800 plus TTT is the best I can find here in Orlando. I'll buy a $300 plane ticket and fly to another part of the country and drive it home. Please share if you know anywhere having specials on the '14 JKs. Thanks.
EDIT: Ah crap...just noticed I posted this in the tech forum. If you're a mod can you please move this to General Discussion? Thanks.

Your best bet is to wait until the next model year comes out or Jeep offers the type of incentives in the post above. Given the current growth rate of sales, I don't see that type of rebates available any time soon. You probably won't find rebates for a few months since this is high sales season.
Alternatively, some Chrysler dealers don't really focus on Jeep sales and seem to only order a few due to contract obligations. Find one of those dealers and wait until they get stuck with a Jeep for over 4-6 months. It will start costing them on their Floor Plan and will be happier just to get rid of it. They are not hard to find. Just use the Jeep Inventory tool on the Jeep website and find dealers that consistently have less than a handful of Jeeps.
Good luck in your search.

Look around at dealers not in the most expensive areas they tend to have more base models, when I bought mine I looked at all if the dealers by me(live in nyc) there there are tons and you'll see the expensive areas usuly only have top end saharahs and rubi
2014 jku anvil, hardtop/soft top, 2.5 inch rock krawler flex system, rancho 9000 shocks, 33" duratracs on 15" level 8 tracker, ace rock rails, Spod, Kc Apollo lights, mopar light bar. Trucklite headlights, trek armor seat covers!
I get Chrysler Affiliate pricing from my employer which is 1% below invoice. No shenanigans on what "invoice" price actually may be. It is very straight forward. All Jeep dealers say that when you use this pricing they cannot go any cheaper and that is the price. It is ~$2000 - $2500 depending on model and total price. I did have one dealer who offered to come off of price an additional $700 trying to get me to purchase a basic Sport model with manual windows and door locks. I also get $750 off for being a vet. I imagine if you go in right at the end of the month and the dealer needs to sell a few units to make quota you might get a bit better price if you work it.
Model year closeout means pretty much nothing when it comes to the JK/ JKU. Jeep knows they have a hot commodity and doesn't have to offer any closeout rebates or incentives to get rid of the remaining 14's. I would start by emailing all of the dealerships in the area the price you are looking to pay, however you have to be realistic. 1 to 2% below invoice is average, however there have been a few who have been able to get as much as 5% below invoice.
I don't think the '15s are due for at least a couple months yet, so they're probably not going to make any screaming deals on the '14s yet. And given the demand for these, the deals on '14s will probably be no more than a slightly better finance rate.
As others have mentioned in various threads, your best bet is to contact several dealers through their internet department. Tell them what you're looking for and ask their price, and take the best one. The volume dealers can afford to cut prices a bit more than the small ones. I had to drive five hours to get a good deal on mine.
You may have trouble finding a stripper, though. In my search I didn't see any "base" models, they were all optioned up. And the few that come from the factory without many options tend to get sold to people who are drawn in by the talk of $22k MSRPs only to find that a typical Sport is marked $26k or higher. They also just had a lease special last month on base-model Sports, so that no doubt depleted the inventory a bit.
I picked up my 2012 towards the end of September of 2012. By then the 2013's were on the lots and they were down to half a dozen base model sports. I had to get a color I didn't really want but I was able to pick up a very base model sport S (AC, and a few other minor add-ons) for right around invoice before incentives.
It's good to choose a model that fewer people want and wait until the end of the month at the end of a financial quarter at the end of the model year to buy your vehicle. The dealer is anxious to get the "less than desirable" models off the lot to make room for new inventory they can turn over faster and they're willing to make a deal to get a vehicle off the books at the end of the month.
We just bought a 2014 Jeep Altitude, all black, for $37,900. MSRP was $42,000....I got about 10% off MSRP which is the best I could get. Some would not even go near that price. Right at 3% under invoice.
