After 9 weeks and 5 days I finally got a text that my Jeep was at the dealers in Florence Alabama.

Ordered a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Willys on 9/13 in Florence, Alabama. It arrived in Nashville on rail on 11/7. It sat in Nashville until 11/17 when it was delivered by truck to my dealer. I picked it up yesterday, 11/19, and here's what I found as I inspected the Willys and signed the paperwork.

1. They honored the price I was given on 9/13 including the 1% Chrysler Affiliate discount. (I retired from GE and they are a Chrysler Affiliate company somehow?)
2. The build sheet I got online showed floor mat deleted but when I looked at the paperwork the dealer had, floor mat were included and were in fact in my Willys.
3. Instead of the 4 gallons of gas on my order sheet as part of the dealer prep, I had a full tank at no extra charge.
4. I was offered 0% financing for 36 months, then 1.9% for months 36 thur 48 and then 2.9% for months 49 thru 60.
5. I thought for sure I read Jeep furnished a cable to connect your phone to the media outlet for, in my case, Apple Car Play but there was no cable.
6. Owner manuals and a small tool kit were in the glove box.
7. As is the case most often, over half my fuses and relays were loose. I asked the salesman if in the prep the service dept checked for loose fuses or relays and he replied, "no why should they?" I said I'd like to check them and he quickly obliged. As he began pushing on the fuses and relays he said, "wow! I can't believe this, we won't let this get by anymore. Thanks for bringing this to my attention."
8. The air pressure in the tires was at 40 psi in the front and 42 in the rear. I looked on the sticker and it said they all should be 37. I adjusted them to that and the salesman made another note.
10. Everything else went smooth. We took an extended test drive of almost 20 miles, highway speed, up hills and thru the city etc. The Jeep handled great. I was very pleased.
11. The Finance guy offered me the MaxCare package, 7 years, 100K miles for $7k!! I just said, "No thank you about three or four times and he said "all right, I'm not gonna waste your or my time, let's sign these papers and get you on the road."

Good luck to all of you still waiting.

You can easily add the extended warranty plan on later buying it from Clay Robbins for a lot less money. Clay got me an eight year Max Care 125k policy for much, much, less than 7k.

While it is nice to not have the added expense of an extended warranty right off the bat, the longer you wait to buy it the higher the cost will be. The price jumps after the first 12 mo/12K miles and there are occasional price increases in the plans themselves. Also, there are some benefits that MaxCare provides right from the start while still covered under the factory warranty.
Yup. Shop it now with both options above. My quotes have always been lowest with Clay but things change. I cannot vouch for other dealers but Clay is selling legit Mopar warranties.

On my 2020 JLUR I was able to sell the warranty with the Jeep and pay a $75 transfer fee to get the policy moved over to the new owner.

I never bought extended warranties until I got the 2014 JLUR. My daughter owns that one now and I stayed on the title so that one still has a $100 ded lifetime warranty. My current 392 also now has the 125k $100 ded. I think these newer Jeeps need the protection but that is just my opinion. No other cars or trucks in my world have extended warranties just the Jeeps.

My Maxcare lifetime/$100 warranty is NOT transferable. Clay confirmed this at time of my purchase in ‘15.

Some policies are transferrable some are not. My max care on the 2014 is not so we keep it in the family. The 125k 8yr one I had on my 2020 JLUR was transferrable since it has expiration by date and mileage. Be sure to ask about that and also ask about including a lift kit in the warranty as well. My warranty I had on my 2020 JLUR had extra coverage for the 2" Mopar Lift Kit.
