2019 JL Waiting Room

The order banks have opened for the 2019 Wrangler JL so it seems to be the perfect time to start this year's thread. Here we can discuss what we plan on ordering, options, our experiences, and the waiting process. The wait is better with company! Who plans on ordering? What do you plan on ordering?

IF I had it to do over again....

I'd make sure my Tires were BLACK like my Soul.

I "may" (probably) would have gotten the nifty proximity door lock/unlock thingy.

Other than that - Everything is perfect! Ordering late model year actually works out for me because it makes my mileage appear more sane.

Like now, I have an '18 with 700 miles on it. EOY I'll be at 25K but it'll be 2 years old by the book even if it is only 11-12 months old.

All good as long as one is driving in a Jeep The rest is white noise.

Maybe try asking the dealership to remount them with the black side out.

Another benefit is that you received your jeep in record time. I will be waiting for a couple months.

Put me in the waiting room. Placed my order for an Ocean Blue 2019 JLU Rubicon this morning. Shout-out to @RubiconSS for hooking me up with his dealer and by extension @Kadonny for referring him. Thanks guys.
Now for the waiting.....

Thanks @Kadonny. Don't worry...you still hold the title for the only 2018 OB Rubi sold.
As for wait...I'm thinking mid to late December since Job 1 for 2019 isn't until October 29th. Or maybe I'll get lucky like @RubiconSS with a 3 week turnaround time on an order

I think the dealer we went to is worth the ride, it was almost 2 hours for me....

I was willing to go all the way to Virginia but the Pa dealer blew them away. Not even close.

Yup, bring it on down, I have a nice street that's perfect for a yard sale.

I have a smaller list, as I just sold my JK hard top (finally) but I have:

JWSpeaker HLs
Qtec LED fogs
Besttop Console Security Bin
Trektop NX Sailcloth

I think that's it, I sold everything else.

I took a look at my Priced Order Confirmation form and noticed my status as:

BE-Editor error-coding error which must be corrected before the order can be considered for scheduling.

I asked the manager what it meant because normally the status is BA. He said the code doesn't matter. He then stated that I have been issued a VON, my name is on the order, which means the order went through fine, and not to worry.

Doesn't sound right to me. Does anyone know anything about this?

so, the ordering banks are open, but the jeep site doesn't have 2019 listed yet for building. our 2016 lease ends next august. I know we have to put in the order for the new lease in the spring. hoping some of the sahara options (led, 8.4 screen) drop down to the sport s.

I contacted Customer Care and they stated the dealership was incorrect. The BE code means the dealership entered the build incorrectly and it will not be processed... Now customer care will reach out to them to correct it.

Indeed. I met Mike and Tri-County with your recommendation and it has been great.
Blew the "famous" VA. Triad of dealers out of the water with service, responsiveness and fairness. No nonsense - just how I like it.

Many Thanks and Highly recommended by me as well.
Got busy ...missed the thread follow up.

I bought my JL from these guys. https://www.capitolcdj.com/ Probably too far away from you in northern CT, but the sales manager knew his stuff and was willing to deal in how much under invoice terms. Think I was around 3% under so not the best deal ever but they had exactly what I wanted sitting on the lot so it was worth it for me.

Have also heard good things about these guys https://www.dansjeep.com/ in Mass.

VON should be available from the Dealer almost immediately. It's the Vehicle Order Number.

Can't be an order w/o a VON

Apparently, the order code for the 3.0L CRD is showing up in the system now. It's code 26 I think.

Personally, if I was ordering again today I'd get:

Rubicon Unlimited
Granite Crystal paint
Automatic trans.
No other options

I ordered my 2019 from Tri-County as well. Worth the 20 mile drive.
Offered a fair price for my trade (let's hope it's still a fair offer when the '19 comes in. LOL)
Got my VIN yesterday so we're progressing nicely. I ordered 09/13 so assuming mine gets built the week of 10/29, I'm hoping for delivery by mid November. But...who knows???

I went very basic like this. Only difference is I went with Punk'n.

RubiconSS got me squared away via pm and it was appreciated. Just as I appreciate you're follow-up.
Thanks guys!!!


RubiconSS, judging by your avatar, you know your way around FT SILL.

I wont even fly over Oklahoma, just in the off-chance the plane could crash and I'd accidentally end up at SILL again. Haha!
