Club WILLYS
 
Thought I would start a club just for the Willys Wheeler edition.

Let's make this a place to share what model we have, how much we paid, and why we chose the Wheeler over the other models.

Make sure to share lots of pictures if you already have your rig!!

I'll start...

JKUWW
HALF DOORS
430
Alpine Premium Sound
Engine BH
Smokers Group (for the extra outlet)
Granite Crystal

$29,776 + tax, title, lic...pretty decent deal.

I went with the Willys because I started with wanting the Rubicon...I than decided that I didn't know if I wanted to dump an extra $5-6k in the Rubi and would eventually do some upgrades myself once the 3-36k warranty is up. I also love the look of the Willys and the fact that it's kinda like a "Rubi Lite". It's also a pretty good deal when you compare it to the Sport.
:iamhappy:

According to Pat on the 2014 Wrangler Information Thread you don't get an extra outlet with the smokers group just a lighter and ashtray. I would have ordered the smoker's group if I knew you get an extra outlet.

First post and thank you for the wealth of information.

I went with my son today to order a Willys Wheeler. His first car was a TJ we got when he was 15. He drove it all through High School and his first year of college. Sold it after his freshman year and got a pickup. He started complaining about missing his Jeep the same day.

He graduates college and commissions in the Army in May and has been bugging us about a Jeep for graduation. We agreed to give him a certain amount of cash for graduation and the rest is on him.

He ordered a WW 2 door anvil, half doors, Alpine sound, A/C, and tow package.
MSRP was 28875 and invoice was 27733. He got it for 26497. I think he got a fair deal from what we have been reading on here.

Now if I can just talk the wife in one for me.

Holy hell! Well thanks! I know what needs to change Monday morning.

Now if I can just remember who told me to get the smokers group for the extra outlet so I can let them know...It's only $30 so not the end of the world.

Wow, what a nice Dad! My folks helped me buy my first Wrangler which was a 91'. Some of my best memories are in that car, including meeting my wife. Hopefully your son can create some great memories too.

Looks like you got an outstanding deal on the rig so congrats. Tell your son we all appreciate his service and stay safe.

Holy hell am I happy I ordered Granite after seeing that pic! :)

Dude, more pics! Ride is looking good. I'm almost positive black lugs will be the very first thing I'm going to do. Shocking they don't put black lugs on from the factory. Congrats on the awesome ride!

Random question for you. Are your lights auto? I'm trying to figure out what I really lose by having half doors from an electrical standpoint. You know other than the very obvious thing of power windows/locks...

ChuckE68 02-08-2014 09:45 PM

My order was placed on 1/15, have an ESD of 2/10, but still in D1 as of today

Willys Wheeler JK (23W)
Granite Crystal
Hardtop

Paid 28,685 + tax & tags

DrinkHoppyAles 02-08-2014 09:46 PM

That Granite looks pretty damn good. I think auto headlights are standard, even with half doors. Of course I could be wrong.

My lights are not auto, I ordered the regular Willys Wheeler. No power locks or windows. No power heated mirrors.

I know you're a half door guy cause we were talking in the half door thread...Do you have a Willys?

The "real mans" Willys, I like it man! Kinda what makes me love the Willys is it is really a bit old school and a little of Rubi mixed in. You made a good choice.

Now, tell us how you feel about the Willys and if you're happy with the decision. You're one of the few people who actually have their Jeep to play with.

Bummer. Auto lights are the only "power" thing I wanted. Had them on my vehicles for the last 20 years. I'm sure I'll be driving around at night for a while without my lights. Then once I remember to turn them on, I'll probably forget to shut them off. I think all vehicles should have them. Kind of like a safety thing.

I happy with my choice. I did want to spend the cash for a Rubicon. The rear LSD has been great in the snow, almost never need 4wd in the snow. I had a 2007 2dr Rubicon, the new Wranglers have a lot more power. I like all of the room compared to the 2 door. The tires and the suspension are the same as what I had. Interior is nicer. I could do with out the connectivity group and all of the buttons on the steering wheel. I had a 2000 TJ, that came with a complete set of real gauges. Now, I have to scroll through a menu to see different temps and oil pressure. The glossy bumper overlays are cheesy looking. I took the front one off and did not get around to the back yet, because the bumper has to be dropped to get it off. Should have came with black lug nuts, but they were easy to add.

Funny enough...the last vehicle I had that didn't have auto lights was a Wrangler. Agreed, only thing I kinda wanted was auto lights, but I can deal.

Great to have another half door guy in here. We all know that half doors are an "acceptable predicament"...

foolproof 02-08-2014 10:16 PM

Ordered mine 1/26m still anxiously awaiting its arrival. Got an email that I'm scheduled for production, but nothing more yet.

2014 Willys Wrangler
Full Doors
Hydro Blue Pearl
Manual Trans
No Power Anything!

Hoping to keep it sort of old school, even though the original Willys didn't have doors. Didn't want a plain ol' Sport or Sahara, didn't need the utility of the Rubi. The Willys seems to fit my needs perfectly, and I can't wait to get it into my garage!

foolproof 02-08-2014 10:16 PM

Oh yeah!

Premium Soft Top too!!

I was going to go Rubi first. Maybe even the X. Then I thought about the Sport when I realized I didn't need the Rubi. After really looking at the Willys I think it's the best of both worlds.

I too think the bumper overlays are cheesy. I will probably pull the front off. Easy to do? The back is a little more hidden I think.

The front bumper overlay only took a couple of minutes to take off with a torx head for my racket. The only clean spot on my Jeep.http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e3...psfece67e2.jpg

There is a stick to the left side of the steering wheel where you can flip the lights on in .3 seconds, so don't worry.
