According to the program doc on jeep.com Wranglers are not part of this program.

I just can't win. I've received 5 brochures from Jeep and not a one of them had the much sought after $500 coupon. I see this e-mail for the$500 allowance and Wrangler JK's are not included.

Hey everyone,

I don't post much here. More of a lurker and reader than poster, but I must say... this forum has been a Godsend!

I just left the dealership here in O'fallon, MO (near St. Louis) and because of this forum, I just placed an order for a '14 Sahara and ended up getting it for a full 3% under invoice. The package with everything I ordered stickered out at $38,680 and I ended up getting it for right at $35,200. Now I sit back and wait!

Here's what I got.
Auto
White with dual top (including body colored white painted top)
remote start
anti spin differential (I wasn't sure about this one... but got it anyway since it was cheap)
heated front seats
auto temp control (might as well, it's cheap...)
max tow package (so I can get the little bit bigger gears, etc...)
cloth seats

I'm TOTALLY excited! I've never bought a brand new car before. I've had hundreds of used cars over the years, but never bought a new one. These damn Wranglers don't make any sense to buy used since most people are asking just about what a new one costs for one that's two years old with 30K miles on em.

Now I wait.

How long is it taking on average for these new orders to come in? Anyone have experience with this?

Thanks again everyone. I really appreciate everything everyone did to contribute.
Shaun

Do dealerships do this (i want them on for when i present the vehicle to my wife) and at what cost? The guy at discout tire direct said it should be no problem for the 2014 jku as they will be the same as the 13's
Pat did this for me, no problem. And loaded up the back of the Jeep with the stock tires and wheels, for me to sell :-)

The information that everyone posts has helped me tremendously in making my decisions on what to order. I will be ordering a Copperhead Rubicon Unlimited next week. Hopefully my local dealer will be no problem, otherwise I will be flying out to Northfiled, Illinois.
I was in your shoes, and ended up in Northfield with Pat. No regrets.

Everyone is probably sick of me saying it, but there really is a reason I keep repeating myself. Go see Pat. You'll be able to relax so much more, knowing you're in good hands.

They strive for 5 weeks. It's close for most. Especially since you ordered right before orders open for October production.

Pat, are we still on stand by for final X package invoice with the available options? Curious to know the final price on it as well as the price for dual tops for the X specifically and any other pricing changes specific to the X. I know there was rumor of 4100 MSRP and a lower price on the tops since the upgraded soft top is standard. Thanks a lot!

Congrats on your purchase! I purchased a JKUR from that same dealership two years ago. They definitely have the best prices in town! After a lot of negotiation, I got mine for employee pricing. I would definitely go back there next time I'm in the market for a Wrangler! Real nice people there!

My sales person just called (Dealership in North Vancouver, BC - Canada), Granite and Amp'd are live on the computer system to order as of this afternoon. No Copperhead as of yet. Hoping to order my Granite 4-dr tomorrow but would love to see a picture before ordering just to make sure, you know if someone had one to share

Serious, went in to negotiate my deal on monday, we built the order on the computer just to work out rough costs, new colors were not available of course. He had not even heard of the new colors.

He phoned my at 5:30 pacific, said he rebuilt it this aft, and there were the two new colors on the system.

Oh and one other tidbit, the 7 Spoke High Polish Wheel for Sahara is no longer an option. Standard Sahara wheel only now.
You rock Pat! Thanks for the post.

Any word on the Rubi X colors?

There are pics of an actual Amp'd Rubi X earlier in the thread. The sticker confirmed $4100 MSRP for the Rubi X package.

Hey Pat,

Wondering if you could provide some input on a few things for me? I was talking with a local Minneapolis dealer on a 2013 Wrangler unlimited Sport S. the unit had repaired hail damage. Being a Sport, the only area that got damage was the hood. We negotiated the price down to $500 below invoice, but they wouldn't go any lower. I walked because I was thinking they had more room to play after collecting on the insurance. A few weeks have gone by and they still have the unit, so I'm thinking of going back in.

I'm also seeing a zero down sign and drive lease on the Jeep site. Do you know the details of that particular lease? Net cap cost, rate/money factor, residual percentage, etc? If chrysler's dropped their rate at all on leases, this thing is within my reach.

Thanks in advance!

I meant to also add, do you have any clue what kind of insurance settlement a dealer would get on a hail damaged Unlimited Sport S? I've got friends in the industry that have said they usually got anywhere from $5k-$7k per unit from insurance, so that's why I'm feeling they're holding back. Granted its likely worth the price we've settled to so far. I'd also be fine with that price in a lease if Chrysler's rates weren't so ridiculous on Wranglers. Thanks again.

I should have been more specific, final invoice price on all available options for the X.

At $500 below invoice on an undamaged Jeep is too high especially a 13 when 14's are arriving. I predict it will be there for months until they knock the bottom off it.
I got $1,000 below invoice on an 10th anniversary edition. I would forget that Jeep and dealership and move on down the road my friend.

I got $1,100.00 below invoice ony 2014 jkur with no damage don't buy that with hail damage. If you plan on modding your jeep don't lease. There can be restriction on miles and modifications.

I'm looking to place an order but I'm debating whether to get the 430N or 730N; both with the connectivity group. My question is what additional features/functions will the 730N/Connectivity Group combo give me that the 430N/Connectivity Group combo doesn't have? Trying to decide if the extra $800 for the 730N is worth it.

Any comments/feedback are much appreciated!
