When in comes to thier service dept though.
Now caught up on the thread. Glad you got someone to help you get what you want. That is odd though that they didn't give you any paperwork. Welcome.

Not accurate. Hydro blue will only be available in the Freedom Edition for the foreseeable future. They may make it available on other trims down the road, but not initially.

I would get the Sahara. The Sport and Sahara are still Jeeps and are very capable.
The Sahara has a few extras but will still crawl all over most ranches.

|Blkfenderslookbetter||My $.02... order what you want. The Hydro Blue will be available in all models (Sport, Sahara, or Rubicon) All the colors offered are that way. The only question is when will the color be available. So if Hydro Blue is what you really want, then I'd wait until Sept. 11 and see when it's available. If the timeline is too long for you, then go for the backup choice. If the price of a Rubi is not a deterrent for you then it would be most capable in stock form compared to a Sahara or Sport. But for Texas ranch land, you'll find that a Sport or Sahara would be very much enough to handle anything you need. The only thing maybe would be a more aggressive tire, but you could easily work that into your deal at the time of sale. Good Luck!|

|Republican Jeep||If you plan on being off road as much as you stated, get the Rubicon. If you even think you are interested in the Rubicon, get it. Most are sorry they didn't get it if it was even considered. Also get the color you want not what the dealer has on the lot. When I traded my vehicle in, I drove one of the dealers brand new Jeep Wranglers until they were able to find the color and options I wanted. By the way, I drove their vehicle for about 4 weeks.|

|blueshound||I PM'ed you my dealer in Dallas call him he'll be able to order you a red rubicon.|

I wish you luck in getting a great deal from one of the DFW area dealers. Three of my last four new vehicle purchases were from out of town dealers (two were out of state).
Three area dealers have told me in recent weeks that they have very little profit selling Jeeps and can't keep Wranglers in stock. The one dealer had three COD MW3 models sitting on their lot and several other 2012 models
I will say that I haven't reached out to the Fort Worth dealers (Arlington was the only 817 dealer I tried).

|Drmad7||And someone bought a Rubicon X in Flame Red. I'm biased as I have an Anvil 10 with red seats but the Flame Red Rubi X gives it a serious run for its money. The 10A does not have unique colors(Anvil is now available on 2014s) and unless they are selling it to you really cheap, it would be best to go with a Rubicon X in the color you want with the options you want. Unless you want red leather seats. But hey, you bought a ranch, you can have Katzkin Red Leather installed!|

|George Ross||My experience with car salesmen is that it is rare to find one that knows the product line as well as the consumer that has done their homework. There are exceptions, but in general you are better off knowing exactly what you want before you go to a dealer. Do your research, decide what you want, and find a dealer that will get it for you.|

I ordered my 2012 Rubi in August of 2011, about a month after the slots opened. I got it exactly how I wanted it. I secured financing and called around locally to ask dealerships if they would help me with an affiliate purchase. None of them called me back, so I called a dealership in Madisonville, TX that my family has a long standing relationship with. They placed my order promptly and it was a no BS experience all the way to driving it away in mid September.
Custom ordering is the way to go. There's lots of good advice here to help you choose the features you'll want. It'll arrive in your desired color, ready to be made your own.

Don't pay to transfer it in, go drive any 2011 first and you'll get some idea of how it handles. Try doing it back to back with a 2013 to compare.
Check out the 2014 thread for more details, Pat tries to keep the first post updated all the time. The new EVIC options alone make me want a 2014, I hope they find how to unlock it for the 2013's.

|SculptressTR||I'm kind of afraid of the 2011 since I haven't driven it and have to pay over $500 just to transfer it in.|

Mark Guzman was a great salesperson when I was shopping as well. I didn't end up buying from River Oaks because they didn't have what I wanted, but he was very quick to answer questions and give me the bottom line over email without having to go into the dealership.
That said, had a great experience with Allen Samuels in Houston where I ultimately purchased from, but since you are in Ft. Worth that doesn't help much

|Kevlars||Make sure to drive both ... the 2011 drives very differently than the 2013 and 14|
|08-27-2013 05:26 PM|
All of you have been so helpful, and I really appreciate it!
I found a 2011 Rubicon with everything I want with only 8k on it. If I don't buy that, I will order the Rubicon in red. I definitely will post a pic :-D

|Adrian87GN||Ask for Mark Gusman at River Oaks in Houston. Trust me. I bought my Jeep from him, I was very skeptical/nervous about buying a new vehicle (first one ever) and figured I'd get ripped off no matter how much I worked the deal (I'm a 100% commission salesman as well) but he really treated me well and I got a better price than I could find at any dealer in TX.|

|Kevlars||There is an idea .. order and have it delivered.|
