Nah...it'd be 4.19, with the 5th guy on the list getting the consolation prized of a spare tire, and the "special badge"...

Customer order only . Jeep rules are they have to see a purchase order with a 500 dollar deposit on launch edition.

I canít post purchase order here but will say I bought it back of invoice. My order sheet has my vom# and not sure Iím supposed to put that here .

Yep Aldo... better believe it. The preorders rolled right into the hands of the dealers on Thursday. If they can’t make contact and secure the order, who do you think gets to secure that preorder?

I’ll know more once I get feedback from my dealer fleet manager. If they tell me I’m SOL, then they took my April 3rd preorder and got it allocated.

But I’m not sure I’d buy one... just playing the field to see if I can get one at invoice.

You got a good point here . I thought it was odd that the dealer I chose didnít call me after I pre ordered it . I waited until 2:30 that day and called another dealer I found in the forum who ordered it for me .

Maybe these dealers hesitated to call that way they can get them?

Had a local dealer call me yesterday and tell me he would sell me one for the great price of 15k over sticker

I had two calls come in I didn’t answer, one after the other... the first one was from a dealer I typically buy parts from and service work. They are close by... the second call was from the dealer I buy all my Jeeps from because I deal directly with the fleet director... I get affiliates pricing. I didn’t answer that call either and a minute later, I got an email from the internet manager - asking “how can I help?”

My answer back was “I buy all my vehicles through Kevin”... his response was, “I’ll forward this to him, he’s out today.”

I received an email from Kevin Monday morning with a follow up later that night with confirmation I can still order one - he’s in the process of checking if I can get one at invoice.

The 10A was similar, but the dealers could ONLY place customer orders - no dealer orders were allowed until several days after the order banks opened and customers got first rights to buy at MSRP.. no dealer markups were allowed unless it was a dealer order.

But I still got my 10A for invoice because Jeep and the dealer agreed to sell it to me leveraging the affiliates program. Not all vehicles qualify for affiliates, like the Hellcats.

I’m still waiting for an answer regarding the Launch Edition. I got the Red Rock at invoice, but I worked directly with Jeep on that deal.. and I kinda played hardball with the dealers. The downside, I ultimately lost my ass on the Red Rock due to its illegitimate model status.

My dealer is playing games... got an email back from the fleet manager last week saying I can place the order and would get back to me on Affiliates pricing.. I didnít hear back. So I called yesterday to inquire and he hem-and-hawed. Couldnít put words together.. mentioned my Red Rock and then offered some lame excuse on ordering the Launch Edition... said yes, you can get Affiliates... they can order one with fewer options.

They STOLE my Gladiator Launch Edition preorder reservation.. bunch of friggin crooks!! Now theyíll put it on the dealer showroom with a $15K ADM.

@JeepCares ... if this is how your dealer network is going to treat longtime customers, Iím out for good.

Unfortunately this has happened a bunch lately . Only issue is that fca is calling the people that ordered to confirm the order. So unless salesmen are fraudulently ordering these and confirming their is no way that dealer will get one from my understanding.

Iíve been called twice by fca . Once to pick my dealer and second time to conform my order. Once I confirmed I was assigned a vin a day later .

Well.. when I bought my 10A dealers were locked out of placing a dealer order for a month. I assumed this is how it worked this time, so that implies my dealer didnít act on my request and now all the orders have been booked.

I havenít received any phone calls from FCA.. only dealers.

Hey Lucky ...

I just received this email from Jeep Wave....

Not sure what's going on at Jeep and their dealers. I didn't reserve a Granite Crystal Metallic and I certainly didn't select this dealer because they wouldn't take the order as an Affiliate deal.

I have a phone call into Jeep Wave to get to the bottom of this.

It appears on the surface not all 4190 are sold orders.

I wonder if there’s any truth to this rumor...

I thought the Launch meant you would be able to tool around in one of the first Gladiators. Obviously that is not the case since they are on the dealers' lots. Other people could be of limited intelligence like me and end up going to the lot now.

I got a return call from Jeep Wave and learned this morning Jeep isn't offering any discounts on the Launch Edition. Probably the reason my dealer wouldn't order one using the affiliates deal. That means any discount offered will be from the dealer's back pocket.

I think Jeep shot themselves in the foot...

People are backing out because the total price will be around $67K after T&L.

That's a lot of money for a mid-size truck with an extra badge, black wheels and special dash overlay.

Just for comparison, here's a new full-size Silverado 4x4 6.2L V8 with all the options. $57,500 with incentives.

I'd like to meet the fool that's willing to pay $20K over MSRP.

I hope Jeep and their dealers fall hard on this one...

I'll never buy another Jeep with this program.
