I know TL is 1% under invoice guaranteed, but wondering if it's worth to try to get 2% under and if I need to do that haggling at time of order or if it's ok to wait till the Jeep comes? Also, what's about the max under invoice you think would be probable using a program like TL? Would 2-3% under invoice be achievable or plan on 1% and be lucky if I get 2%?
Ask the dealer if they participate in the Chrysler Affiliate Rewards program - virtually all do. (There is no such thing as the "Tread Lightly program" - membership in TL, or employment with or membership in about 1200 other entities, makes you eligible for the Affiliate program.)

You've locked in a 1% under invoice, no BS dealer add-ons deal. If you want to try to sweat out a 2% under deal, better do it up front and get a written memo on it. Once that pretty new Jeep that is just what you wanted comes in, you'll be putty in the salesman's hands!
Make sure any deposit you give with your order is refundable!
