Less then 1 hour off the truck and there is already a line!

We just got in out first 2007 Four Door JK...

I already had the letter written all I was waiting for was some Photos.

When it got here today I ran out and snapped a few photos put them up on my server and emailed out a photo link to my list of interested Jeepers and prospective Jeepers.

Here is the link to the photos I snapped. http://jeeptales.com/galleries/07JK/index.html

The other sales people had list of interested folks and started calling.

There are five or six folks in our waiting room waiting for us to finish the PDI and prep so they can test drive this new Jeep.

I must say; based on the response I think DC may have another winner even bigger then the 2003 Rubicon in 2002!

I wonder if I'm going to get a chance to drive it before someone buys this one.

That is a 2x4 Sahera with every option but the Navigation System.

It came in at $28,610.00

Job One for the Navigation system is November 1 2006.

We are NOT adding a market adjustment to them since we are the largest Jeep Dealer in ahe Dallas marketing area (TX, LA, OK, AR) we will have the largest allocation. No need to Rake people over if they want one. I know there are a lot of dealers who will but not us... It's not the Ancira Way!

I make my living selling Jeeps so think of me
if you are in the market for one!

My first test drive in the JK

Today I logged about 45 miles in this new JK rig.

GREAT RIDE... It√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs a lot like a cross between the last generations of Grand Cherokees and the 2001 XJs no doubt when you drive it this is 100% Jeep DNA.

I like: The loops for the door swing limiters and the power source to the electric door locks and windows are integrated into one piece and come with a handy clip for removing the doors.

The acceleration is fantastic and you will be stunned by how quiet it is next to no road sounds are transmitted into the occupant compartment and even with its extended length the handling is crisp and nimble. If you hit a speed bump in this Jeep at speeds of more than 25 MPH you will not need to check for body or undercarriage damage but you will know you just hit a bump√Ę‚ā¨¬¶

The Upgraded Stereo Rocks and even a guy of my stature 250 lbs. and 5' 7" tall fits well in the drivers√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘ seat or in the back seat for that matter.

The Cup holder is big enough for a Peach Smoothie from Sonic and all the car hops had to come out to take a look at it.

I will admit the one we have seems to have a disturbing wind noise in the hard top at highway speeds but we will put it in service tonight and see if we can track down the source of the noise. I think it will only take minor adjustment to the latch to get rid of this excess wind noise because it not happening on the Driver√Ę‚ā¨‚ĄĘs side.

If you are in the market for a Jeep this one will not disappoint you at all, now just pick do you need a Four Door or a Two Door?

I just wanted to make sure everything was perfect before a bunch of folks test drive it this weekend.

It was just a crimped seal.

I worked on it with a tech yesterday and all the problems are solved.

I have taken "13" Order on new JK since Friday!

Exclamation Tuesday night

I see a Trasport pulling up outside with two more 2007 JKs on it.

Now I know I'll have one to take to the SAJE Meeting tomorrow night.

I know my local San Antonio Jeep Club will be glad I can bring one to them.

Pretty much, Since there have only been like 4 over all model changes in the Wrangler/CJ in the last 40 years it gets kind of crazy in public when a new one came out. I'd say that the change from the TJ to the JK was about as wild as it was from the YJ to the TJ back in 96/97.

RIght. I remember how people would say how ugly the TJ was and that they would never own one. They said the same thing about the YJ. Actually, even I said that about the YJ when it came out. Opinions change, though. I love all the Jeeps, even if they are not all for me.

No comment is more ridiculous though than someone saying they don't like a YJ because of the square headlights. If that is what someone bases their vehicle purchases on, then they probably would actually kick the tires on a car lot.

I guess it's just people's reaction to change then. I just don't understand what all the huff is about. In the end, it's just a matter of taste...and if you don't like it, don't buy it.

It's amazing how the JK has so many in an uproar

In order to keep up with the H3's,Xterra's and
the "new" FJ Cruiser they had no choice.

Chrysler~Jeep had to make some changes to the
Wrangler or the '06 would have been the last.

I think the 4 door is a good idea not to fond of
the engine they decided to put in it.I think a hemi
would have been a nice choice but hopefully this
version appeals to the masses and the Wrangler's
will live on

There was alot of hub-bub when the YJ came out, then alot when the TJ came out-- it was pretty much the same-- "Oh my, what did they do!?! That thing is ugly/weak/slow/incapable/junk/whatever!!!"

Now look at them, we all love them!

From what I have heard, it was the same thing when the CJ's went from flat fender(CJ-2's & 3's) to round fenders (CJ-5). As history has it, the CJ-5 ran for almost 30 years and still is (in my opinion, being a 'CJ Guy' ) what all are judged by.

I'm sure a JK will be our next Jeep, in a few years...

We just got our first two door.

I'm sure it will be gone by Monday.

We also just got in our first "UNSOLD" 4x4 Four Door JK It will be gone by Monday too!

I like the looks of the two door.

What did I tell you...

The Two door sold 1 hour after we opened today, and the 4 Door 4x4 was sold just after lunch.

I bet if you got a transport full of 4x4 JKs we would have them all sold in less then three days.

Wish I could sell a stock unit... So far all I've sold is just over 20 orders...

I took three more orders today!

I wonder what is going to happen?

I have the invoice to a Red 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4 Door "7L116461"

It's unsold and will be here in 7 to 10 days.

So I sent out a mass email to all my unsold prospects...

Do you think I will sell it before it hits the ground?

I sure wish selling jeeps wasn't a commission job. I like talkin' jeeps but after three years as an army recruiter I knew I probably could never make it in sales. What's it like as an internet sales rep, same rules apply as lot sales?

Thumbs up Unlimited Rubicon arrived

I just received a bright silver 4 door Rubicon (ordered 8/18) and was surprised at how comfortable and agile it is. The top does not leak as some boards have stated. The top is very easy to remove and the stereo is terrific.

The only flaw I've found is the stupid automatic door locks. I can't find a way to disconnect them, and I hate having to unlock the doors all the time. One other minor problem is everyone stopping me to ask about it and comments like "Is it like a Hummer?"

The prior Jeep was a TJ Sahara and the new JK is much more comfortable. The JK is very quiet, even with the knobby tires. I'll take it out to the desert this weekend and see how it works where it really matters.

I'd be happy to respond to any questions about the vehicle.
