Hey Guys!

New to the forum! Planning on getting an 11 Wrangler Unlimited pretty soon...they just gotta find the one I want.

I do have a few questions...

1) Colors....my first choice color combo is the deep cherry red with tan leather interior. Looks great and I love red.
But the red one they found doesn't meet all of my criteria. But there is a silver with tan leather that does. I'm not too picky about the colors but do you think silver with tan interior will look right? Granted it's going to have a 2.5" lift with huge tires and black rims, and all of the other goodies on it. But just wanted to see what you guys thought.


2) The red one has the 430N Nav system in it and I want the 730N system. I've talked to the dealer and they said they can swap it out. It's pricey but possible. Just wondering if anyone has done that with their Jeeps.


Thanks for the input!

personally I don't think the tan interior would look good with the silver- especially with the top down. Deep cherry red would be great with that interior though.

Are you dead set on a 2011? The 2012's are out, have some improvements notably the much improved engine.

Welcome to the Forum

I agree, hold out for the red/tan combo.

I just bought the 2011 a month ago - great experience, I am in LOOOOVVVEEEE! Got the bright red with black cloth interior. I simply don't see leather as a good idea with my crew. I would hold out for the red, it really is a great color.

x2 . . . red/tan is nice, but don't see tan going with silver, buddy's got a silver jeep w/black interior but exterior is usually mud-colored, so the silver doesn't really come into play with him. I say do what you like, you're the one who's gonna drive it.

Order a 2012 and you can get any features you want. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to miss out on the 70 HP extra and higher MPG in the new 2012 engine--In fact, I didn't miss out and decided to order a 2012 instead of buying an older model. It is worth waiting a month IMO for the better performance and MPG.

Welcome.

Great to have another Jeeper on the forum. Post pics when you get it that is the only requirement here. We want to see all Jeeps because every single one is awesome. Personally I am not a fan of tan or light colored interiors with darker colors like red or black or dark green. But it is your Jeep just make sure you get what makes you happy I will dig it regardless.

Make sure you WAVE to us!

Rock on!

Thank you guys so much for the info on the 2012 Engine. That is VERY exciting. That engine is so lacking power and that was always the downside for me, but to know that the 2012 is getting that I'm just going to order it.

And of course pictures will be going up! I'm a long time member of the BMW forum, so I guess the same rules apply.

thanks for you help! I'm even more excited now!

I just thought about right after I found all of this out. lol
Glad to be apart of the Jeep family. Wish it could be sooner rather than later.


Now a another question...

To everyone who has ordered...how long did it take from placing the order to hitting the dealership? I was told 8-12 wks. I was really surprised because the BMW I ordered took less time than that, and all of that time was it on the boat from Bremerhaven to South Carolina.
Just curious

It is going to be torture but worth waiting for. What might be worse is when you take it in to get the mods done and you have to wait for a few days. Either way your enthusiasm is understandable and warranted!

You will love it! Again post pics and wave! Can't wait to see this baby.

I ordered mine on the 28th of July and it is currently on the train to the station closest to my dealer. The projected drop-off at dealer date is the 15th of August, though my dealer says it will most likely be a week after that (I'm not sure how accurate my dealer is on this one....). So less than a month either way in my case, but at best it looks like 18 days if the Insight website information turns out correct.
