Just got back k from the dealer from ordering a 2018 JKUR in Gobi with a manual and hard top.
The manager told me Rubicons get built fast? Not sure how true this is but he said he always gets rubicons faster than sports.
This is my 3rd jeep and second rubicon, I had a 2013 2 door I bought new as well.
Here's my old rubicon.

Now the Wait!

Drink a lot. You'll black out and not remember today.

Few weeks from now phone will ring and you'll be like, "My Jeeps in. What Jeep?"

Do it all the time:)
It's always nice to go to the dealership and be surprised :bop:

Hell, I guess I'm cheap. Still try to justify the money to mod the one I have. And I only want seat covers and Maybe different hood latches because it's impossible to keep the factory ones black. Then again I'm trying to pay off the mortgage by putting extra on the principle. If I was single this would be a no brainier.

I wonder how the prices on the JKUR's will hold when the 18 JL's are on the lots.

You told the story on here about the time you got the HR. It even had your name on the window sticker. Funny, I never forgot when I ordered a vehicle - two cars - both Plymouths.

Some members have complained about how long it takes to get their Jeep. I may have found out one of the reasons. FCA will not let a dealer order a Jeep unless they have sold one. The supply is very tight, so the dealership may have to wait until they sell one before they order the customer's special order.

probably do just fine.....unless the JL's come in a lower price point :) which is unlikely or the JL's really offer something spectacular as far as performance goes.

Indeed. Easiest 6-8 weeks I never waited :) I still have the emails, last one being "Hey, Your Jeeps here".

The follow up being, "Ya wanna come over and check it out?"

"sure"

Now I just washed it and took the Top off, gonna go for a ride and smoke a cigar.

Congrats OP, Hope your wait goes like mine did
:)

colors? diesel was rumored was it available?
I think they said the '18 JK is basically an extension of the '17's with nothing different but a possible new color.

I can't see them wasting the engineering time on the JK.

Were the order options different than 17's?
Gobi got cut from the Willys option list.
Baja Yellow will replace another color very soon. Exactly when or what color is being cut is still unknown.

^^ agreed

I can see them clearing the parts bins however- the leftover 10A/HR bumpers and vented power dome hoods from previous Rubicon special editions have been finding their way onto Sahara-based 75th Anniversary models over and above the Recon, and I suspect when they have been used up those special edition parts will dry up & not be available on late production 2018 JKs coming off the assembly line (unless ordered before production is scheduled to be over).

Sad- Gobi is one of the more handsome colours offered in the last few years. Sales and orders figures will probably have a lot to do with what gets cut.

Jeep also ends colors when they are too popular.
I've seen a lot of Willys in Gobi. Far fewer Saharas.
So ending Gobi as an option on the Willys kind of makes sense from that POV.

So I wonder when they will end White or Black.
