Commando will be available on August 7th to order. If it was me I would make sure I could go to the dealer on 08/04. The last few months allocation has been unofficially opening on the Saturday before.

There is going to be a 2013 Freedom Edition so I would guess you'll see that color. No charge leather as well.

Due to the ridiculous wait to even just order, I've had plenty of time for second thoughts as well. An impulse order/sale probably would have happened, but since it couldn't I might just hang onto my trusty F150 for a while longer.

Way to lose a sale, Jeep.....

10 days until I can order my first Jeep! Is it bad that I've already ordered parts from Quadratec before I've even ordered my Jeep?

+1 on the countdown thing.

I don't see it going over well with the wifey if I tried ordering parts for a vehicle I don't yet own.

Her: "But you don't own a Jeep."

Me: "But, but...I'll be ordering one in a little over a week. And it'll only take until October to arrive."

Her: "That's over 2 months away!"

Me:

Should. Dealers in my area are saying 30-45 days after ordering, so I would hope for Oct. 1st at the latest (assuming July 6th order).

Not Available in Sahara?

Hi, Forum:

I have decided to get the spec below, and the sales person I talked to said that it is not possible to get a Sahara in Commando Green. He then said he can get it in a Sport. He seems all over the place. Said he could get it in a 2012 too. I am so confused. I just want to place my order.

2013 4DR Wrangler Sahara Commando Color
Leather Seats Dark Saddle Color
Supplemental Front Seat Mounted Airbags
UConnect 430N Navigation
Connectivity Group
Air Conditioning with Automatic Control
Black 3 piece hard top
3.73 Rear Axle Ratio
Trac-Loc Limited Slip Rear Differential
6 Speed Manual Transmission
Slush Mats by Mopar

Any advise for me? Wouldn't the dealer know that allocation opens Aug 4,5,6,or 7th on this? Why do some other forums say that they have already ordered their Commando Greens?

You would have to talk to the other forums about how they ordered Commando already. Not all salespeople are provided information on allocation dates, it will depend on the the owners/managers deem as important information for the peons.

As far as what we've been told, you will be able to have Commando on any package.

No one has ordered CG on another forum. It isn't available to order until August 7th (with Monday the 6th or Saturday the 4th being remote possibilities). The other people may have paid a deposit to order one (as in my case), but it hasn't been ordered from Chrysler yet.

Many dealers work with many different brands and models of vehicles. They can't be experts on all, so I give them a pass on knowing when allocations open for ordering. But telling you he can get it on a 2012? Geez. Run now. Contact another dealer.

I have ordered Commando. It has been available to order in Canada for over a week. According to Milous in the stickied 2013 information thread.

Ok, sorry. I should have mentioned, domestically, no one has yet. Thanks for the clarification.

Thanks guys. I really needed the reassurance. It looks like I am on the bandwagon too and will have to take out time on or about the release date.

About the Aug 7 Commando allocation....if one were to not order on that date, or shortly thereafter, will the opportunity be lost to order that color? How exactly does the allocation work?

I finally found a reasonable person who orders cars at a local dealer (New Orleans), and he said that he will check for me on the 7th or the 8th and that he can order whatever he wants and has a substantial allocation of unsold units. So, hopefully you will be OK if you don't oder exactly on that date. However, there is a restriction on leather too, where he can't order me leather now. So I have to see when that opens up. Well, at least leather is not a deal breaker.

probably best to ask that question in the main '13 thread http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/201...ad-161113.html

Spoke to a contact. Leather, 6speed and CG is 8/7, as Pat said.

Yeah but is that color green that the jeep in the picture is painted really the "Commando Green" that Chrysler is going to use or is that just a custom job some guy got on his jeep that someone else "says" is Commando Green? I've seen several different forums with several different takes on what the actual "Commando Green" color will look like. I hope he's right! because my dealer says its available on the 2013 Rubi Im ordering tomorrow.

No, that picture in the beginning of this thread is a photoshopped picture. He used the green from the swatch in the 2013 Info Thread and did some tricks to apply it to another member's Jeep. No one know what a CG Jeep looks like as of yet.

The best you can go on is by the swatches, which is not always accurate. Likely it will be a pretty standard olive green, but you are taking a chance on it by ordering before seeing. It really depends on how much you need the vehicle now.

I ordered mine a few days ago, so stoked about it. Unfortunately, I won't be able to get it until April since I deployed. But I am looking forward to my baby when I get settled!

Very much agree.

I will need to see in-person before I commit. I am hoping that I like the color as much when I actually see it...and hate the Rubicon rims a little less.

I was surprised that folks dropped 2013 orders with so much unknown. I have seen quite a few posts by folks who submitted Sahara orders before they saw those rims...and who aren't happy now. While I'd love to have a new commando green Rubi as soon as possible, I'll need to see it first before I drop 35K.

Did I mention that I hate the new rims?

I understand that sentiment, but I can tell by swatches if I hate a color, I know that I like the general idea of the color and even if it just close to what I imagine I will be happy.

But honestly, who will notice when it is covered in dirt and mud?
