Taking Delivery Today 5/31

Today is the day we are supposed to take delivery of the Jeep. The dealer has been telling us since last week that the Jeep would be here 5/27, then 5/28, then 5/29…you get the idea. The manager guaranteed it would be here today, but VOTS still says Shipment and the dealer website still says “in-transit.” So…hopefully it arrives and gets unloaded by 5:45pm today when we arrive otherwise they are going to have a very angry woman on their hands and there will be nothing I can say to calm her down at this point as she is suffering from severe Jeep arrival anxiety. Anyway if all goes well I will post pics up later tonight! This will be her first Jeep, she has wanted a Jeep since she turned 16 and her dream is finally coming true 8 years later, so she is really excited....and I am too J

Make sure you do a full check of the vehicle no matter how excited you are. I know the wait is killer but mishaps do occur during shipping and it's best to notice them right away.

Don't go by the online tracking. Its always off by a couple of days. The only person that will know for sure is the dealer since they make arrangements to have it transported to the dealership. Sometimes they team up with other dealerships to split the cost of a transport truck and that's where the delay can come from but if they didn't get it yet I'm sorry to say you won't be getting it today. It generally takes a day for delivery prep.

Will do! We have been having storms the past few days here in DFW so I will be sure to look over the Jeep closely as there are some areas that received hail storms around here.

The only valid excuse for no pics is that he's still driving it around!

UPDATE: Ok guys sorry for the delay! Took 4 hours at the dealer and lots of drama. First off, the chains used to secure the Jeep to the tractor trailer damaged the hardtop bad enough it needs an entire new hardtop, so the dealer is replacing that for the white hardtop they have on a Sahara that is "in-transit" now and arriving sometime next week. Fine, no big deal. BUT, when we got to the price negotiating, the dealership was a complete failure. They refused to honor my TL discount and said they can't be used on "ordered" Rubicons. Haha... BS! long story short, they honored it after some tough talk and now the Jeep is at home safe and secure in its new garage haha. Here's a pic @ the dealer:

I will post more over the weekend, I'm worn down from arguing with those people!

Even after the hours and hours of haggling over every thing imaginable and being tired, worn out, & ready for bed...she was still very excited as you can see by the big smile on her face. We both can't wait for the weekend to mess with all the features!

Yeah, nice sales technique, eh? It took my wife and I 5.5 hours to buy a Subaru Forester a few weeks ago; WE BOUGHT OUR HOME IN LESS THAN TWO HOURS.

They just figured you were gonna take the vehicle, no matter what, because you waited for it and wanted it; good on you for putting your foot down...sleazebags. The dealer and I negotiated our deal before the order was even submitted and the only thing we had to do was find out what the APR was going to be on the loan. If they weren't going to allow you to use your TL discount on an ordered vehicle it should have been disclosed at the time of the deal.

Anyway, beautiful Jeep, and glad you're happy with it!

Buying a new car at a dealership is the worst. I almost want to get a job there just to get the inside scoop on the tactics they use.

Nice rig man

Rubis with the colored fenders seems to be the new trend...Very slick looking though.

Nice looking jeep and she's even nicer looking, and that's hard to do with a Rubi. I'd say you hit the daily double!
