Unhappy 3.73 cost and Destination charge increase

Browsing local inventory, as I do while I hope to get back into a Jeep, I noticed two changes on a sticker today:

3.73 listed as $95 up from $50

and Desitination listed as $925 up from $900 (which was up from $800 not that long ago.

See it here:

Unless Chrysler jacked the lower gear cost up to $1500, which is roughly what it takes to have it done after you drive off the lot, that's still one of the all-time great bargains, IMO.

I knew about the destination charge.
I didn't know about the 3.73 price increase.
The cost of the side steps also increased....from $395 to $450 or something like that. I noticed it a few days ago.

Is $70 really that big a deal in this context of ordering a new vehicle? I sure hope not and if it is, you probably should not be looking to buy a new Jeep.

All sort of prices have been going up...aluminum, rubber, oil, paper, food, etc...

Do you think that --somehow, by notifying this forum, that that'll change the price increase ????

Just as important--were you aware that gas price went up here in NorNv, over .02 cents/gal, in the past week--

I figured you'd wanna know,cause thats of EQUAL importance !

Not sure if it was a typo or not but I seen the Remote Start on a vehicle in transit at $495 up from $200. Looks like a loaded Jeep might be about a grand more soon

Ridiculous! $450 for those POS steps!? Wrangler prices are just getting dumb at this point.

Thanks for the info, it's good for people who's still in the waiting room or debating if it's the right vehicle to get.

No I meant anal, why give a new guy grief when he is posting up a fact. If it has already been posted then say so, but why say some smart ass remark like "and the purpose of this post is? Gas costs 2 cents more blah blah blah" your remarks are way more offending than him posting something you don't find useful.

If it doesn't serve a purpose for you don't read it. That's what I normally do, you just struck a nerve with me today being an ass for no good reason.

You don't want any disagreements/arguing/name calling on this forum, but his descriptions and attitude were "tactful" ??

Jim, I know that you have a lot of fans, but at times you can be one huge turd.
Cut the guy some slack. If you don't like what he has to say, go on to the next post.

Are you really that bored in FernTucky?

Do you complain if you get a raise or a COLA? Are costs going up on everything in general? That's part of life in this world. Price increases are the only way to compensate for these things...

The only fans i've got are electric, in the desert heat !

One thing I don't understand is why do you guys keep using the emoticon (action verb) "BORED"-

Is it because I'm making fun of a ridiculous statement and you don't agree ??

My counter statement of gas price increase in NorNv was to show you a-NOBODY CARES-statement-

I won't comment any more in this thread, because the WARDEN is already watching it and I'm probably right at the edge of acceptance--again

----CIAO---

The turd part and humor is why I like Jim, Sometimes this board needs it. Once the person see's Jims personality all is cool.

Jim, head west down the hill, Jump on Hwy 49 in Loyalton and follow it to Sierraville and then onto Grassvalley. Good pub and brew awaits and makes for better days.

Price increases are fine, but it isn't a bad thing to make people aware when they happen.

The destination charge did increase from the time I bought my Sahara to the time I bought my Rubicon. I don't know about the 3.73's, I ordered the Sahara with them at a charge of $50 and would have never minded if they were $40-$50 more.

Either way, I never really paid too much attention to those costs. I mean, in relation to what I was spending on each new Jeep, they were not much more than a drop in the bucket.

You are typically a pretty cool guy Jimbox. That's why I originally said why the hating on the OP'r. Are you bored?

Your comments are usually insightful and funny. It seemed out of character for you.

Let's stop and reset the day. It was as much my fault for throwing fuel on the fire.

Yes prices go up and I dont think anyone is really complaining about that. But it helps to know that they are going up for people that are thinking of waiting on a 13' or going with a 12' that is currently on the lot and built before May 1st.
