Forum member that is a Dallas Metroplex dealer?

Howdy!

I've been following this and a few unmentionable Jeep forums for a while, but it is now time to pull the trigger on a new JKU. I was wondering if any members are also dealers in the DFW area.

I have been amazed at how knowledgeable, helpful, and dedicated the members are in this community. Thanks for being so awesome! I figured it would be great if a sales person would share the traits of this community.

Post up or PM if you're a DFW area dealer!

Thanks!

Only dealer that I know of that has a member is Field's Jeep in IllInois. The members name is Pat. He is very knowledgable and would help you if you want to make the trip.

Not sure on that one, other than what the previous poster stated about Fields in IL.

For what it's worth, I had a great experience with Billy Bolding at Huffines Jeep in Plano. He's one of the internet guys at that dealership. Exchanged a few emails, questions, and offers - then went and picked up my Jeep later that day. Smoothest transaction I've ever had on a vehicle. I had my own financing at 1.74% through Texans CU, so I didn't have to deal with the finance guys either - in and out at the dealership in 30 minutes or less.

I'm sure I probably could have got him down some more, but already was happy with where I was on price at invoice. I know there are some folks on here that haggle their way all the way to 4-5% below invoice, but I don't have the time or patience for the sales guy and his manager and supervisor and everyone else at the dealership. If you do, power to you.

Also, Huffines has a couple Jeep dealerships in the the area, so their inventory is pretty expansive and can easily transfer between dealerships.

Happy hunting!

Thanks fellas! I stopped into Texans CU today and they offered me 1.74 as well which seems like a no-brainer!

I have followed Pat's posts and he is definitely THE guy I would like to give my money to, but Illinois is a bit extreme for me...I will be stopping into Huffines on Wednesday!

Thanks again!

I'll second the Huffines Plano nomination. They treated me right. NO juvenile BS games like I got at a dealership in Denton/Corinth that shall remain unnamed.

Not trying to jack the OP's thread but can any DFW area guys recommend a good shop? I want to put some AEV control arm brackets on. Figured it shouldn't take but an hour or two.

To the OP, I have heard nothing but good things about Collins Bros Jeeps. Might want to give them a call. They have been around for a while.

I know it is quite a drive, but I remember many posts about a high volume dealer in Houston (can't remember the name) that seems to sell their Jeeps at well below invoice. Like 4-5% below invoice.

You should also contact James Sudbury at Dallas Dodge.

My prior vehicle died during car pool the day before we left town for spring break. I contacted James and we negotiated a deal on a Sahara JKU via email/phone while I was out of town. James was nice, didn't play games, didn't take advantage of my situation and didn't have to go to the manager for pricing approval. The final under-invoice price was great compared to the two other local dealers I contacted (they were stuck at invoice, and only moved to 1% below invoice when I brought out my Tread Lightly membership). For geographic reasons, I did not talk to Huffines.

Good luck!
