|filipinocracker||I tried Rockville and they just ignored me the 45 minutes I was there. Ended up buying from Criswell. Not pleased with them at the moment but its too early to start bad mouthing them. Purchased my Jeep on the 27th and it has been in the shop since last Tuesday.|

If you are looking for a good dealer in Maryland. Look up Century Jeep in Mt. Airy. It is a little off of the beaten path, but well worth the effort.
My deal has been very smooth including a trade, financing, and incentives.
Ask for Johnny (sales manager) and tell him that Ed sent you.
Support the good dealers!!!

Well, the best price I've been quoted (so far) is from Heritage Jeep in Baltimore. They'll let me place a factory order for $750 under Invoice.
So, that may be where I'm headed this weekend...

Saw you guys talking about soft tops....if someone needs a top, i have a new one (still in the box) from my 2007 Sahara. I don't need it, came with my Sahara. My Rubi just had the hard top. So, just saying can give you a sweet deal. Pretty sure it will fit 2007 through 2012s.
|08-19-2011 10:38 AM|
hey guys, look on line at Koons Jeep in Tysons Corner. I was going to order a 2012 RUBI and using the 2012 info in the JK forum, it came out to about $34000 invoice. They offered me this in my e-mail back from them when i inquired about one on the online inventory that had all i wanted to order except matching fenders and remote start.
Your price is only $33,171 plus tax, tags and fees (includes all incentives)
This vehicle is available! Please call me to confirm your appointment.
It might not be the best deal ever but it worked for me. I traded my 2007 Sahara in and we split the difference on what i wanted for trade
I live in Calvert County and my local Jeep Dealer used to be Ralphs Dodge....btw, loved those guys, but they sold and are now Prince Frederick Jeep Dodge, Chrylser, Ford and whatever other brand you might think of....needless to say they don't offer much in the way of discounts. Great salespersons to talk to while you get your vehicle serviced (good service department) but don't seem willing to cut you a deal. Much like Adams Jeep in Annapolis. I buught a 2011 Liberty for my wife form Waldorf Jeep. Once again from on-line inventory. They were offering over $4000 in incentives and had the inventory.
Give Koons a try. The guy i used was internet sales and i didn't try and haggle more over the price quoted but we did have to go to the well once or twice to get them to bump up the trade in.
here is Jeffs e-mail at Koons.
firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] can't hurt to give them a try. Plus they had in-stock inventory. A week ago, they had a bunch of Rubi's some Saharas and a bunch of 2011's.
Hope this helps....good luck.

I also got the dual top with my Jeep, for the same reasoning as Ang. But then I also got a Bikini top and duster cover from bestop because I removed my back seat and have only the bikini on.
I thought about getting half doors but then decided against it. So far this summer I have been running doorless all summer and I am loving it. I have found that unless the rain is coming down at a slant water does not get into my jeep when it is parked and while driving it is a nice mist to the face
I actually bought the Rugged Ridge relocation kit and have no complaints with it. But if you do have your doors on, expect to not see anything from your right side mirror.
|08-19-2011 06:32 AM|
the soft top. I know Bestop makes a soft top care kit. I think that the yellowing comes more from improper care than anything else.
Silly as this might sound my thought about half doors, was I would love to have them or no doors in the summer time, however, in the winter having to unzip my window to go to the ATM or drive-thru seemed like pain to me. I know loads of people do it and it's trivial but it was something I thought about.
|08-18-2011 08:49 AM|
Wow - thank you.
Based on your comments, I think I'll hold-off a few days on placing an order at Ourisman until I contact both Koon's (at Tyson Corner) and possibly Farrish of Fairfax. Heck, I live in Annapolis anyway (which is Adams Jeep territory).
After looking at both the Farrish and Koon's Jeep inventories on their websites, Farrish does have a black-in-color Wrangler S hardtop that has all of the options I want (to include the side airbags) which would work - BUT that brings me to another question for comment and discussion.
I've always wanted a soft-top with the Half Metal doors, but I have concerns about the soft-top (e.g., the plastic windows "yellowing", the leakiness of the top, the plastic window door inserts, etc).
So, does anyone have any opinions, experience, comments, or suggestions regarding soft-tops versus the hard tops? And, maybe the half metal doors versus the full frame ones?
From what I've read, Maryland requires at least one driver's side rearview mirror and if I remove the full frame doors, I'll need to attach a small mirror to be compliant. But from the various photos on the Jeep website, the side view mirrors on the half metal doors are attached at a lower point, so I can remove the plastic window inserts and I've still got side view mirrors.
Thanks in advance for any info!
(You all are great - and we love living in Maryland!)

|phantomofrussia||bought my jeep from criswell in gaithersburg and got a pretty good deal on it. granted this was for a 2011 last december. I now have a friend who got a job as a seller there. Chris Lee, he is a nice guy but I dont know how he is as a salesman.|
|08-17-2011 07:29 PM|
|Ang.||I ended up ordering from Criswell last night. Wasn't my first choice but after my experience with Ourisman in Clarksville, I was particular in what I was looking for. Eddie went above and beyond in answering my questions and doing everything he could to make the process easy. I will admit to being ready to walk out when they tried to charge me $75 for using the TL program! I was like no one else has done this and if you're doing this I'm done. After some running back and forth the 'other' guy that said we had to pay came back and said that they were going to waive it. We proceeded with Eddie and so far, so good!|
|08-17-2011 06:00 PM|
|SlackerMD||Criswell was extremely convenient to me, but both Farrish and Koons had them beat hands down on pricing. I eventually went with koons and the process was nice and painless.|
|08-17-2011 05:57 AM|
If you go with them, go in knowing EXACTLY how to order EXACTLY how you want your Jeep. Make sure that EVERY option is listed on that POC document where you can see it, because what's on there is what you are getting. PERIOD. I live 1 mile from them and you couldn't pay me to deal with them again. They flat out told me that I knew more about the 2012's than they did.
|08-16-2011 09:14 PM|
Well, I spoke with Ourisman Jeep in Clarksville, MD today and they'll do 1% under Invoice with an additional 1% for an Affiliate Rewards number (via my TreadLightly membership) on a factory-order (customized) Wrangler.
Should I push for 2% (plus the additional 1% for AR TL) for a total of 3% under Invoice - or should I be very happy with 2% on a 2012?
I really like the idea of selecting the options I want and am willing to wait for the 8+ week build time.
Specifically, I'm looking at either a Sport-"S" or Rubicon with a soft-top, half metal doors (seemed to be hard to find), optional side airbags, auto transmission, tow group, and a few other minor add-on options (i.e., sat radio, side steps, diff lock, deep tint windows, etc).
|08-13-2011 04:43 AM|
|snax||Criswell in Gaithersburg is good but for selection I went to Fairish in Northern VA. Lots of stock.|
|08-11-2011 08:28 PM|
I got a couple of suggestions from some other forum members. Here are the links
New and Used Chrysler, Ram, Jeep & Dodge dealership in Bel Air | Jones Chrysler Serving Baltimore, Aberdeen & Edgewood
Len Stoler Dodge Chrysler Jeep | New Chrysler dealership in Westminster, MD 21157
Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Rockville - DARCARS Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Rockville, Maryland 20852
And I was contacted by Eddie the Internet Sales guy from
Car Dealer | Used Car Truck SUV | Gaithersburg Germantown Frederick Rockville MD
after I submitted a query with one of the online dealer search sites.
|08-11-2011 07:47 PM|
I'm thinking about going into Adams Jeep of Annapolis this weekend.
Last call for any recommendations, suggestions, or comments.
|08-11-2011 05:10 AM|
|Ang.||I'm on the market for a new dealer after being less than happy with Ourisman in Clarksville, MD. I couldn't recommend them for anything at this point.|
