I'm going to verify for sure, It was one of the questions I asked when I got my JK so if I find out otherwise I will have to relook at my premium.


To Sflip, your departing remarks are right on. The old school way of doing things in the car business still rear their ugly head and make us(salespeople) all look like a bunch of scum. Like I said, had they communicated the supplier issue you could have chosen to go another route. I hope it all works out for you.

I think what he meant was that if you spend enough time around either one, they're gonna try to stick something in your butt.

Nicely put.

What I've left of your quote above is, in my view, the most important part of your dealings with the dealership.

I can understand modest annoyance when a dealer doesn't let you know that a part is backordered. It's unprofessional. But still, I don't see it as a catastrophic problem.

However, promising to swap you for a hardtop on the lot before purchasing and then refusing to do so after the purchase is inexcusable. You of course didn't get this written into the purchase contract (which conveniently provides that it supersedes all other written or spoken arrangements), but most folks aren't going to read these documents that carefully. And besides, this is a moral--not legal--issue.

If I were you, I would make this my primary complaint to Chrysler or the dealership itself. They made a promise they had no intent of keeping--in other words, they lied.

Oh, and any hardtop of the same year will fit. That thing about being built for a specific Jeep is nonsense. This is why anybody can sell their hardtop on Craigslist.

I sorta don't get it! You want both tops, so you order the duel-top OPTION! If they said "it's in come get it" and there was no hard top = drive away...contract canceled.

Now, if you ordered a hard top from the Parts Depts as an after-sale part = your bad!

If you wanted both tops, why didn't you order the duel-top option?!?!?!?!?

I don't think he ordered his Jeep- I think he bought it off the lot.
