Arrow 2017 JK Waiting Room

Just talked to Jeep guy, went over the specs and gave him my Chrysler Affiliates Rewards Control Number. He is going to officially place the order as soon as the order banks open up either the 8th or the 11th.

I'm still debating about the built in NAV stuff, not sure it is worth the extra $1,000. I just have to let him know first thing Monday morning. Here is what I am looking at:

2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock Edition
White
Auto
4.10 Gears
Black Hard Top
A/C
Remote start

Having dealership add a WARN CTI-S winch with quick disconnects and WARN Quick Disconnect Jumper cables provided they don't try to gouge me on labor.

Are you getting word that the banks might open on the 8th instead of 11th?

Missed the 2016 order date by a day so now I'm waiting to order my 2017. I've had to test drive a couple cheap used jeeps on Craigslist... considering buying one to hold me over because I had already sold my DD...

2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara
Billet Silver
6 Spd Manual
3.73 w/ Max Tow
Anti-spin rear diff
Connectivity
Body color matched hard top
Side seat supplemental airbags
Engine Block heater

I wanted the 430 radio but apparently on the Sahara you cant order it without the Nav so I decided to skip it. Also planned on getting the auto temp control, but saw that its not dual zone and its just a analog dial anyway so I skipped it too.

Also, keep in mind, that production doesn't even start until September 19, 2016. Even if you get your order in now, that will make it an even longer wait.

honestly i wouldn't be surprised at this point if the 2017's get pushed back a little bit. it seems the factory is running behind, enough so that they implemented a Sunday 10 hrs shift. i attribute the longer than expected lead time due to the summer shut down at the plant (1 week) whereas last year it was canceled all together to meet demand. plus, it seems there was a surge of orders and i'm not sure why...possibly due to some of the colors that are dropping off in 2017? who knows.

if orders are staying in D1 for 3+ weeks, basically that gives you an insight into how large this bottleneck is. with 2016 orders having been cut off since July 17, i would hope that gives Toledo some catch-up time to reduce the bottle neck and clear things out. of course customer orders aren't the only thing that has to be fulfilled...you have dealers placing massive order of 2016's so they have vehicles on the lot to hold them over until 2017's start rolling off the line (there is a brief 2-day plant shut down at Toledo for the switch over). unlike with other vehicles, Jeep dealers can actually get away with charging higher prices for Wranglers between when the plant stops accepting orders and when the next model year hits the dealer's lot. inventory starts at a finite number and only dwindles from there. people get desperate and dealers know you can't order anything and receive it until early November

I'll be ordering a hyper green JKU in the next couple weeks with hard top and auto. The real excitement will be the mods!

Did you guys have a problem getting your dealership to provide info on the 2017? I asked my local dealership (sc) and they said they don't know when 2017 is coming out, and they won't know until the truck shows up.

Is there a thread about which dealerships are more familiar with wranglers? Sorry, newb here.

All the info they have on the 2017 Wrangler, is still officially confidential. They would be get into BIG trouble if they released any of it early.

I am sure once the official release date arrives, they will be able to share.

I can't even get my sales person to call me back. Maybe it's because I've changed my mind on colors/options about 3 times already?

You'll be glad you got it (especially if combined with remote start). It's great to just let the car do the work with getting the cab comfortable without having to manually mess around with the knobs.

Talked to dealership today. My guy confirmed that the order banks open on the 11th. He also stated that sometimes they get details about options prior to the banks opening. He assured me that he would keep me posted as soon as he heard anything. I can't wait to order!!!

Sweet! A sales guy told me yesterday afternoon that it looked open. He said he would try to get my order in but I never heard back. Hopefully I'm in the queue!

Ordered today. The dealers have the pricing info and package info. I was able to pick what I wanted. They printed the configuration preview for me. They said the orders won't officially go through until Thursday (11th), as we originally thought.

Depends on if the 12 year old that runs the site gets punished or not...if he's in timeout - who knows when the site will be updated.

Hey Milous - have you heard anything with regards to the 2016's that were ordered in July that seem to be sitting in D1 forever?

I debated on the 430, but I want nav, and you can't get the 430n in the Willys, so aftermarket it is!

MSRP $38,605
Got it for EP $35,127

2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara

Billet Silver
Body Color painted hard top
6 speed manual Transmission
Connectivity Group
Supplemental Side Seat Airbags
Max tow With 3.73 gear ratio
Anti Spin rear differential
Engine Block Heater

MSRP: $39,860
$4,000 discount
$500 FCA military cash

OTD price $35,360
Wish I could have got slightly better deal. But all in all, it'll work. He had originally agreed to $5,000 off this same build for a 2016 but I delayed "thinking" about it too long.

So its costing me $1,000 more to get 1 year newer with LED headlights.

Hopefully I can get the VIN soon my pre-approval expires Oct 8th and i'll have to re-apply.

Not sure, I have about 10 I am tracking that went to D1 last month. Hopefully they will be hitting the line soon.
