$500 Mopar Bucks
 
Yup. I am a noob to the jeep world.

After monthes of silent research I am pulling the trigger on Sunday. I will belong to the Rubi Riders. ;)

The dealer says I'll get $500 mopar bucks.

As I understand it I'll get a little shopping spree in the parts department.
So may question is what do I make as my first "flarkle"?

A little background.
Buying:
2010 Rubicon, Hardtop, Auto, 24R package, And Tow package and bla bla bla.

Use: Daily driver and some fun in the dirt.

My off road experience: First 4x4 was 1985 toyota pick just after high school. played and went through two transmissions and finally did less 4x4 and more ATV stuff. Mostly adventure (dual sport bike) stuff... But plan to play off road more in the jeep.

My first thought was a front bumper or winch ...
ok, part of a winch ;)... :doh:

I thought more experienced jeepers might provide some insight here.

If you were buying a new Rubi, what would you spend $500 mopar bucks on first?


:doh:
Thanks.

Well cograts! Im newbie too. Suppose to get today.

Have been thru the Jeep store yet? There is a link to it in another thread of mine. Pretty nice stuff! They have Warn wenches. See if your dealer has the Jeep Wrangler Accessoreis flyer.

Lets the others advise you in your rubbi set up.

Wow, that's a good deal if you can use that toward a wench. I'd probably regret not getting something for the Jeep right after though, but you should get a half way decent one for $500. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

JIMBOX 05-29-2010 07:40 PM

:eek: Thats great to hear and I can't wait to see a Wench on a rubbi !!

Better that Dancing With The Stars ---

:rofl::rofl: JIMBO

J.B. 05-29-2010 07:43 PM

Ought to get more for $500 than a wench that is warn! :D

I bought my Rubi about 2 weeks ago and just ordered all my parts the other day. They all came in and I have them already. Just make sure you do it with in the 30 day time frame and make sure you understand the if you have any cash left over you need to wait another 30 days before you can use it. Here is what I bought and I had about 70 bucks left over.
rear rubber cargo mat
slush floor mats
black tail light covers
Black gas cap cover

I just bought a 2010 Unlimited. I did not receive the $500 toward Mopar parts. Is this something I should be able to still get?

The dealer should be able to hook you up. I just picked up my Unlimited Mountain Edition on Monday and they gave me a form. The dealer's Mopar parts guy called me the next day to tell me to just email him the completed form from the online catalog. The Wrangler was a present from my wife since she knew I wanted one. I married well. ;)

CapptainObvious 06-02-2010 03:21 PM

anyone know how long this offer has been going on? I bought mine at the end of feb and would love to get in on this if possible lol

chef1231 06-02-2010 05:57 PM

If you bought the NEW wranglers last month in May you get $500 Mopar bucks. You will want to contact the person who did the F&I (Business Manager) and parts manager. You will have to sign paperwork saying you know you have 30 days to spend the money.

JC JK 06-02-2010 06:01 PM

Looks like I will be CALLING my Dealer to find out what happen to mine! Mine is only 3 Weeks old and all MODDED:D I could use that $500 on parts.

rear rubber cargo mat
slush floor mats
Black gas cap cover

chef1231 06-02-2010 06:09 PM

There are a lot of sale people that did not even know about it so if you bought one it might have just been an oversight but I would call them asap to get your stuff ordered.

chef1231 06-02-2010 06:10 PM

Hey JC where did you buy it? Was it in North West Indiana?

zabooda 06-03-2010 01:51 AM

I heard the MOPAR biminis are the way to go.

JC JK 06-03-2010 06:12 AM

chef1231,

No I bought it from Community Chrysler in Martinsville.I ordered it from them. I have been buying one every year there scents 03

beakaroo71 06-03-2010 08:58 AM

With the mopar bucks I got the u connect with ipod interface control. I would die with out my ipod since radio doesn't play the music I'm into. Sirius Xm plays it but not some of the bands I'm into.

PartyPat 06-03-2010 02:40 PM

Wow heard nothing about this from my dealer. I wonder if I can still get in on it. I still have paper plates!!

TOW69 06-03-2010 02:47 PM

ya they told me the same thing 500 bucks in stuff. Please they took that 500 off the price and called it a day.

It all comes out in the wash I suppose. Welcome to the RUBI RIDERS

It's the same to you, but not to them.
If they give you 500 bucks off.. they lose 500 bucks
If they give you 500 worth of product, they only pay cost. What might cost you 500 to buy, would only cost them say 250. Then they only lose 250.

You got the better end of the deal.

BigRichie27 06-03-2010 03:39 PM

Just got back from the dealer. Had to pick up my registration. I asked about the Mopar bucks and they said I should have been given a form with all my paper work. I told them I was certain that I did not have it and 10 minutes later I was in the parts department ordering some things (Snowboard rack, mirror brackets, speakers, slush mats). I believe the limit is 30 days from purchase, so take advantage if you are within that time frame.

Sf_Kilo 06-03-2010 03:50 PM

Good friends with the salesman, he took $300 off a $100 over invoice sale in exchange lol...

PartyPat 06-03-2010 10:53 PM

Talked with them today when I picked up my plates. Before this deal, wrangler had the $750 off. Now they are just giving the $500 mopar money.

plac 06-03-2010 11:18 PM

I'm also hearing you HAVE to get everything installed in their service department. No one works on my Jeep but me. If they insist, then they will be keeping their parts and ill be thinking about that during my dealership review.

Ordered:
hitch receiver plug
cargo tote
light bar
door sill guard
cargo area tray
fuel filler door
front air deflector

BigRichie27 06-04-2010 09:49 AM

That is not true. You are entitled to use the $500 towards installation, but you are not required to have them install anything. I'm not having them install my speakers or anything else.

congrats on your purchase!

just a word of caution. there is no such thing as security in a jeep wrangler.

either get a steel storage box with lock or plan on carrying that garmin
