Forum Dealers in Colorado?

I intend on ordering a loaded 2013 JKU Rubi, unless I can find one that has exactly what I want on a lot (4.10, Auto, dual top, connectivity group, black leather, nav, auto a/c, heated seats, remote start, not sure on color yet).

Went to the local dealer but wasn't impressed with my salesman's knowledge of Jeeps or possible incentives. He even claimed the new Pentastar was pushing over 300 ft/lbs. So I'm wondering if there are any forum dealers around to help me get a good deal through incentives and who can answer questions about the JKU with actual knowledge.

I would qualify for the Tread Lightly discount, I'm a member of USAA and have access to their car buying service, I'm a veteran, and I just graduated law school (I do public interest work, so no big bucks). I also currently drive a 2007 JK 2-door but I'm going to sell it myself because I've got $13k in aftermarket (35" tires, Teraflex 3" lift with control arms, Yukon 5.13s, ARB lockers front and rear, etc) and the local dealer offered $16k trade for it (I figured as much).

Hell, for the right dealer experience I'd also take a trip to Indiana, Illinois, or Iowa where I've got family anyways, but would prefer to find someone near Denver.

Go to Fort Collins Dodge Chrysler Jeep and ask for Jeff Wuestenberg. Got me into a Sport two weeks ago for USAA price. Doesn't try to sound like a know-it-all and is down to earth. One of the best new vehicke buying experiences I ever had.

I got mine well below invoice. My salesperson was Rob Barnhart at Go Chrysler Jeep in Golden. He knows all about Tread Lightly. Very easy to deal with and his price was excellent. Tell him Neil with the black/green 2 dr Rubi sent you (if you go to him, which you should). I could not get a better price a couple of months ago. PM me if you want details/price/etc.

If you are in the south-west part of town, talk to Jeremy at Go Jeep Southwest. He knows his Jeeps, and very low pressure. And I ordered from them, and their general sales manager, Charles, was great and kept me updated through the build.

And remember, there is no such thing as a Tread Lightly discount. Being a Tread Lightly member makes you eligible for Chrysler Affiliate Rewards, which is the Preferred Price on vehicles (1% below invoice, though many get 2%+ below). Many people are eligible for Chrysler Affiliate Rewards because of where they work or membership in other organizations (like Treat Lightly).

I bought my 2011 jk from pro jeep after looking around for months because they didn't pressure me or make me feel inferior.

I second the recommendation for Rob Barnhart at Go Chrysler Jeep in Golden. This was jeep #2 for me purchased from Rob and he's great to deal with and gives you a great deal up front. He went the extra mile with me as I was unhappy with my purchase of a manual and wanted to swap it for an auto. Rob helped me work it out over the phone and then he drove the replacement vehicle to my house where I signed the new paperwork--painless and took less than 10 minutes. So needless to say I'm happy with my '13 true blue sahara. Look up Rob--BarnhartR@autonation.com!

It sounds like you have some good leads, but if they don't work out you can always look up Pat here on the forum. He works at I do believe Fields Jeep in IL. and always wants to help out forum members.

I second Jeremy. I have dealt with Jeremy at GO SW for over a year, he is fantastic to work with, low pressure and super knowledgable, he really knows Jeeps and truly wants to help people get one. I can PM you his number if you would like it.

Think I dealt with (others and) Rob also at GO in Golden. Good deal and a little bit under USAA price..ordered what I wanted. Just sell your other vehicle before, that's where I got it put to me...but then again that is how it always is with a trade in.
another name to mention, Tracy from Greeley
they told me I had "the first Commando Green with Saddle interior trim"

For what it's worth, as far as central Colorado 4x4 shops go, I'm beyond impressed with High Country 4x4. Can't say the same for our 4 Wheel Parts...

Another vote for Go in Golden. Dealt with their Fleet dealer guy (can't recall his name right now) and got exactly what I wanted for below factory invoice.

I would also consider the dealer in Brighton.

Hah yeah that "other" negotiating point on a trade in isn't ideal.

Interesting I went through a Jeremy (K) as well, but he was an independent guy but my JK came through Go West to Pollard... I can PM his info if you want. I got a SCREAMING deal in a 4 door, with a bunch of stuff added.

More info:
I had, I think 3 phone calls and 8 e-mails with him.
Drove the JK to my house and was out in under 45 minutes.
I also had 2 HUGE rebates as well, friends and family and a VW owner rebate so that helped a lot.

No sitting around dealing with sales bull honky...

Screw that place. I got my 12 MW3 from them and it was a nightmare ordeal. I had to go back so many times and got into a yelling match with the service manager when he refused to do a simple 5 minute head unit password lookup because he was off in 15 minutes. I wont EVER recommend that place. The dealer was completely uneducated on the Jeep and the finance manager was a jackass. Being that a previous time when I had my WK in for service and they LOST it... I strongly caution against them. Turns out with my WK that some moron had marked it as a trade-in and put it out in the lot somewhere. It was in to get its thermostat replaced.

I will work with Go Chrysler on Wads though. The service department there is great.

My suggestion... find a knowledgeable dealer at any of the big chains. I prefer GO. Once you find a good dealer that knows his stuff, he can get inventory from ANY of their lots. No sense in you driving out of your way when you dont have to.

I just received my new Wrangler I ordered it though Centennial on Arapahoe under the Tread Lightly Affiliates program which took about 5 weeks from order day to delivery. Wade Henley is the Internet Manager and I highly recommend Wade and Centennial. He is very knowledgeable on Jeeps and a pleasure to deal with. Smooth process with great communication during the build phase.

I had a good experience with Grand Junction Chrysler/Jeep. Mike Nixon is the sales manager and worked with me directly to fine tune the sale to my liking. He has good Jeep knowledge a a good inventory.

I would like to retract my recommendation for Jeremy and GO Southwest. I referred someone to Jeremy and they bought a new JK, and Jeremy claims he submitted my referral, but I never got my $100. Their service department sucks; dishonest and incompetent. And the marketing calls I get from Auto Nation (parent company of GO) are very annoying, despite my requests to be removed from their lists.
