Topic Review (Newest First)
Today 05:09 AM
HardEcho3 There was some talk about one of the members making up some hats, and maybe some other clothing. Did anything come of that, and if so how do I buy? My favorite season is close, and some new swag Willys style would be great!
Today 02:04 AM
Gobo Upon further review, the dealer included the wrong willys package. I requested the Willys W (24W) $6,000. they listed the 24K $4,000.

(New Jersey is also supposedly a tough place to get a deal.)
Go to the dealer with as much research done as possible. Know exactly what you want and the Dealer Invoice costs (Edmunds, TrueCar, etc). Don't let them talk you into 'finding exactly what you want' from other dealers if you are willing to wait 4-6 weeks for 'exactly what you want' to be made. Your idea to email various dealers seems great though I bit the bullet and lucked out with a nice eager sales guy.
430N code is 'RBZ' and should be available on the Willys.

GOOD LUCK! Let us know how it works out for you!
Thank you, I've gained a wealth of info in the past week. I got the price down to $33,150 (FWP). The MSRP is $34,630 The only change was moving to the Uconnect 130 from the 430. I've asked for a config preview (Photo below).

Also, can anyone confirm that the 2015s still include the tow strap kit? I don't see it on my window sticker.
There's a short list of suggestions in post one of the waiting room.

Ginkgo improves blood flow to the brain and acts as an antioxidant. These effects may translate into some benefits for certain medical problems, but the results have been mixed.

Some studies have found that in healthy people, ginkgo might modestly boost memory and cognitive speed. Other studies have not found a benefit.

I like ginkgo it works for me or has a wonderful placebo affect on me
My filter is to sit there and talk to my screen and say everything I'd LIKE to say, while typing the PC version.

And you were spot on about the ginkgo.

I agree. I love the ride and better yet, my wife loves it. She was surprised at the ride based on her experience with our first jeep (YJ). She said that one rode like a truck! Imagine that. I'll probably change springs if I want a lift but undecided on that right now. Maybe spacers? Undecided for now. Gotta get the winch mounted first.

If ginkgo is for eye sight it has a great placebo effect too. Even my wife notices I forget where my keys are far less when I am taking it

· 2015 Wrangler Unlimited
· Wrangler Willy Wheeler W
· 5 speed Automatic Transmission
· 3-Piece Hard Top (MX3)
· Alpine 9 speaker Premium Audio System with Sub (RC9)
· Uconnect 430 with Navigation *
· Side Airbags

(*Some dealer tell me that I cannot get the 430N on a Willys? this true?)

So far, the best deal I have been quoted is 34,479 + tax, title & license (SoCal). Am i going about this process the right way? Is this a good deal in your opinion?

Good luck!

Thank you for your confirmation and help. I've never bought a new car before, so your support is appreciated. I'll take a look at the link, and do more research.

Thanks!

Could be a lot of things, but if your MIL light is on it means something IS wrong. Don't disconnect your battery. Take it to the dealer. Could be a cylinder misfire left or right side along with a few other things. Don't wait.
