Since my first payment is 60 days from loan approval, the start of the loan remains the same whether I order or buy off lot. I'm going through USAA's car buying service and the dealer found the exact Sahara I configured to order in Houston. I'm in Dallas, so the dealer is trailering it up today. I'm getting a white Sahara with color matched hard top, connectivity, 3.73, anti-spin diff, and leather with heated seats. MSRP is $37,900, the USAA price plus my military incentive is $34,400. All in all I might could have haggled lower but getting that price was painless, so I'm happy!
I pick her up Friday night!

Like was posted before, go ahead and have them assign a value to it, on paper, when you make your order. I did that, and the fleet manager just asked "what are your average miles per week". I'm trading a newish, low mileage vehicle, so in my case, I'm not about to cross a mythical "value line" in miles anyway, so I don't think the few miles I put on it in the 4-6 weeks are a big deal -- neither do they.
I did this before, many years ago, and was rear ended on my way to the dealer to watch them unload the new, built to order vehicle from the carrier. I just got a copy of the trade work up, insurance paid the difference caused by the fender bender, and all was good.

Not sure if there is a "standard" format for how it is done, but if you get appraised in advance, with the understanding that you will trade it in when the Jeep arives, I would make sure to get something signed and in writing.

|legitposter||Do you really need to order? Go check out the lots. Test drive some. As soon as you find yourself smiling then you're done, make the deal. You'll never look back or think about it again.|

Awesome info here!
Looking forward to ordering my Jeep in the next month or so... Will see, might be before that to be honest.
How does it work if you have a trade in also. I have a 2005 Dodge Ram that is my dd and want to trade it with the sale. Do they just appraise it like any other sell just when the order jeep comes in. Or do they work out all the financing and trade in when you order the Jeep?

|TX95YJ||My 2013 Sahara took 40 days from ordering it to dealership delivery. Not bad, it really went by quick it seemed. It gave me time to get my cash together and pay the balance due after trade. She's all mine.|

It's ironic that I just placed my order for a Rubicon tonight. It was my fastest and least painless transaction at any car dealer. In an out in 70 minutes.
The dealer stated that it could take up to 6 was but he feels confident it will arrive in 4ks. I saw on the order form a code for "sold" and asked him what that was about and he said that meant sold to a customer who is now waiting for their car and not just for the dealer to have one sitting in his showroom. Therefore that code will expedite it and push it to the top of the production run.

One of the forum sponsor Jeep dealers replied on the thread (when I asked) that the "restricted" would be lifted on that order on a certain day and he was correct. So I assume that means your dealer should know what's what.
A few days later, I had the order in. I think they do them in batches though. So if you hit a sweet spot, your time to shipping is faster. (I don't have any proof, but just prowling the various waiting rooms it appears that way, and it makes sense.)
I'm in D-1, so that's like purgatory.

I went hard after my dealer on the value I wanted for my trade, got them to meet me there, and then got a signed copy of the purchase order that clearly spelled out my trade. Granted, I am not sure if it is a legally-binding document under every (or any) scenario, but they indicated they would honor it when I talked to them last week.
I think the OP said he was turning in a lease, but the advice is still relevant to anyone else that might be reading.

Hi, it felt like it took FOREVER for my jeep to come in, however it was six weeks! I have had zero problems. So the factory staff did a great job, did I say zero problrms! got a brocure from jeep today and they
will be coming out with the 2.8 diesel soon, so I get to order another JEEP.
LIFE IS GREAT..

DON"T JUMP...give it a little time.. i had one dealer tell me that he couldn't place an order at all cuz BOTH transmissions were on hold....
I think these things come and go...
|04-22-2013 03:42 PM|
Well I've just learned the dealer cannot order a 24G Sahara, they can only order with a manual transmission.
He's looking for one in stock, of course...
I may end up ordering a Freedom Edition. We shall see...

There is info on the Forum that basically will provide you with "invoice pricing" of your spec'd Jeep, exactly how you want to order it. This will be a good negotiating tool...although , again with a 10A i don't know if your negotiating power maybe be totally different....
When i ordered i had a spread sheet with 2 columns..column 1 was MSRP on the base Jeep AND all of the individual options and column 2 was INVOICE pricing on the base Jeep and all the individual options...so at the bottom of the columns i had the TOTAL MSRP and TOTAL INVOICE price of MY JEEP..how i wanted it built.. i was loaded with amo and had plenty of back up to use incase they tried to over charge me.
In the end i got it for about 2% under invoice along with a few perks, i was happy.
