FFP is 1% below invoice, dealer gets reimbursed 2%.

FFP = Friends and Family Price
AR = Affiliate Rewards(supplier,fleet, tread lightly, etc)

Both are the same program, both are 1% under invoice. You can only use 1 program, you can not combine FFP with AR.

Thanks for that Info Pat.


So it sounds like to me other on here are stating that they are getting 2% and 3% below invoice on the 14's that they are ordering.


There is a 13 sahara on the lot that I wouldnt mind having at all.

Seems like if others are getting 2 and 3 I should just ask for that instead of going with the FFP pricing.

PAT

Are dealer's more inclined to wheel and deal on the 13's they have remaining on the lot over the 14's I could order?


BTW Thanks so much for taking the time to answer all of these questions. If you were close to FL I honestly wouldn't hesitate ordering from you b/c of the wealth of info you provide as well as taking the time to answer everyones questions and concerns.. Very cool of you
----------------------------------------------

Can anyone who has purchased a 14 that has recieved 2% or 3% shoot me a PM w/ the info so I can show it to my dealer and ask them to Match the same discount? That would be awesome

I bet a Rubi X in Flame Red with Dark Saddle/Dark Saddle would look great. Cant decide if I want to go that route or with a Sahara chromed out since I am pretty much a mall crawler.

My Dad worked for Chrysler for 19 years before he died, a lot of it at Sterling Heights Stamping.

The Richmond, MI dealer is supposed to be the biggest as far as volume, but I had a bad service experience there so I've been shopping around. No one knows anything around here.

I use Palace Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in Lake Orion. PM me and I'll send you my sales guy's contact info if that works for you location wise. If you're up front with what you want, if he can do it he will. Between my wife and I and friends we've sent we've done 10 vehicles in 5yrs with him.

10A Hood Decals

For you Anvil owners...I love this swap. The red outline and larger font I think looks great. p/n 68200547AA. Being less than 2wks old the stock hood decals came off REALLY easy. There's a few tiny bubbles in these but we think hitting 'em with a heat gun might fix that.

So any Canuks in here know what the Canadian prices are supposed to be like on these options? I went to place my order today and it was not what I had gathered from any of my sources.

Also, they only offered me 4% off. Tell me that is not the going rate for Canadian preorders. :S

Can someone clarify for me? i know the susp pkg is not a " lift" per se. But on jeep's website, the height dimensions on a JKUR are just about 2" higher than a regular JKU (71.9" vs 73.7"). Running Ground clearance is also higher for a jkur (10.1") over a jKUS (8"). Both have same size tires and i am comparing an s package, not the stripped version of the JKU.

Approach, departure and breakover is also listed as better for a rubi which would lead one to believe it has a bit of lift.


So does a RUBI really sit 2" higher stock? if so, that's the ticket for me as i don't want a lot of lift, don't need lockers, but a 2" boost from the factory would be great. And i plan to tow a pop up so stiffer springs would likely be an asset. I guess I'm a little ignorant. What's the advantage of the Rubi suspension if not for a little boost? I've got a dealer offering me a really fair purchase price @ 2.3% under invoice and i need to make a decision to move for him.

Thanks for any insights.

I gotta say I'm not impressed with how the 130N behaves with an iPhone 5 plugged into the remote USB. If you regularly use apps like 8tracks or Pandora to stream audio, you might get stuck in a loop where the head unit doesn't know what controls are taking precedent and no audio will come though.

Also, I guess I'm supposed to have a free year of satellite radio, but all it says is "acquiring signal" for like 10 minutes...nothing.
Nice jeep, congrats!!!!!!

Hey Pat, I know you have no clue when Granite, Amp'd and the Rubi X will be available to order, but do you have any idea when or how long it could be before you get some more info on them? Is it something you won't know until the next allocations or later or could you possibly have more info before the next allocations?

I am just trying to get a realistic idea how long this wait could be.

Also, here is another question. I know you mentioned how Chrysler likes to stagger the new colors. With Copperhead coming out in September are you basically saying that the Granite and Amp'd probably won't be available in September and it would be October or later??

Y'all should send Pat a friggin gift card, and write his manager a letter praising him after all this damn color information you're badgering him about. Geezo. I don't care about the colors (already got my '14) but thanks for sticking around Pat!

I'm down for a little bribery. Put down "What kind of gift card?" under "When are all the colors available?" on the list of questions for Pat.

If I order a JKU Sport and upgrade to the premium soft top (not dual top) will it come with tinted windows?

Also, are the front two windows tinted at all?
