You do know what "invoice" means right?
That's not the same as "MSRP"
"Invoice" is what the dealer actually paid Chrysler for that vehicle...
So 1% below invoice means the dealer lost roughly $200-$300 dollars.

I imagine how it works; is you give the dealer your Tread Lightly #, the dealer sends that off to Chrysler and gets reimbersed for their loss. Then Chrysler gets to write that off as either a loss or Non-profit donation for tax purposes...

Not exactly. Things are very murky with car dealers. You would think that's what "invoice" means, but not in the automotive world. Dealer's still make money at invoice, that's why it's possible to get below invoice.

Some would say this is getting greedy, but dealerships have gotten one over on me too many times... my turn.

Any help would be great.

Thanks again InfernoGirl!
Talked to a dealership and they had no issues with this discount and my military discount but they gave me absolutely no wiggle room to work with. So I tried, and now I'll have to see if I can make the finances work.

Total price with out taxes is 29470 for
Jeep Wrangler Mountain Edition with:
Tow Group
Automatic
Limited Slip Differential
Freedom Top

In Your Opinion is this Decent?

Seems pretty decent to me, although my opinion is based on North-East pricing.

My borther-in-law is Director of truck sales for Future Ford. I know it's not chysler but i imagine alot of their "tricks of the trade" are the same. If it's a "true invoice" than that "IS" what the dealership paid for the car. An "invoice" is their actual receipt for purchase. But that's not to say they're above "giveing" you a higher number and calling it "invoice". But there are programs and "4th of July/ End of the year" sales where they may loose money on an individuale sale, but if they hit a target number of sales the bonus from the manufacturer more than make up for it.
