It appears you can still grab one of the launch editions, so I guess they did not sell 4190 units yet.
I would like to see/drive one first before ordering a $62k vehicle.

Would be interesting to hear from Lucky

There is no way I would ever buy a vehicle sight unseen, any brand, not just FCA.

Yep, Jeep is promoting it as...

“exclusive forged-aluminum tailgate badge”

Lol

For $62,000 you’d think they’d do something special like matching Jeep luggage bags “for your adventures” to promote the launch

I agree. The red Rock came with more than wheels and badging though from what I remember.

Serialization would cost $.05 ea. Jeep is getting really cheap... reminds me of the company I work for.

If Jeep wanted it to truly be exclusive, they would've limited it to 419

Launch edition launch time

Yes I did ore order one . Got the call this morning .

As far as price no I didnít pay retail.

The msrp is so high due to all the options . I didnít really care about the badge .

Iím excited and will keep you all posted . When they called they tried to force me to local dealer and I finally convinced them to send order to my dealer 350 miles away.

Whatís even more strange is it became live last night instead of today .

That’s because you signed up for the pre-launch notification - earned you an April 3rd order date opportunity ahead of the April 4th order date opportunity... a lot of opportunities being given out.

In reality, not sure this is an opportunity.

Tell them you want Affiliates pricing...

And BTW, you're not forced to take delivery.

Been down this road before with Jeep.

Funny story , and doesnít surprise me .

Yesterdayís launch was a cluster &$#@

A majority of the dealers didnít even know they could order them without the reservation.

Jeep called me and sorted everything out. But dealer never got the call . Waited until 3 oíclock and nothing .

So we just ordered a launch without the reservation . Already have my vom number . I was told Iím in the 3600 range . Kinda sucks as I thought my pre order would get the ball rolling earlier . What a mess and doesnít surprise me .

Went with black. Spoke to Jks yesterday and should have a 2.5 lift ready by the time I get it .

I wanted this because I need to haul my boat on the weekends and my jk is no fun doing it . I also hunt so really looking forward to using it that way as well.

Went on hunt December in jk and had to get truck to help carry our harvest . Iíll never do that again .

I have never had so much fun in a vehicle prior to my Jeep (s) . Everybody has an opinion and Iím ok with that .

My family thinks Iím crazy buying a Jeep truck. But I feel once itís lifted and personalized to me it will be very cool looking and lots of fun .

Iíll keep everyone posted as it progresses

A cool $261 million for a days work. Now that FCA has their money, let's see how long before they are being delivered.

I wonder if this was customer order only, or if dealers were also allowed to order for inventory.
