Re: Buy or Order

I ordered mid July. 07 Wrangler Lease wasn't up until 9/25, so I had plenty of time to order exactly what I wanted.

I wanted a Limited with V8 and 20-inch wheels, and nothing else. The only Limiteds around here with those options are more expensive than Overlands (loaded up with every option on the Limited... not a good idea dealers).

Very happy I ordered... I hadn't seen a Dark Charcoal with light interior (they usually have black).

The wait was agonizing though, and the vehicle only made it with a week to spare.

Re: Buy or Order

Both for me too, I talked with my salesperson who I've dealt with for the last couple jeeps. She also happens to be the sales manager now. She found a vehical that they already had on order that fit my wish list. (Blackberry Laredo X, V6, Panosunroof and the tow package) so she put my name on it. Two days later she called me and said a Black Laredo X with the same options but it was the V8 came in, since she new how much I wanted it before leaving for vacation the next week she offered to take a little off and give me first crack. I had already pulled a uturn and was on my way over. Got there and drove it before they even had a chance to take the plastic off the seats.

Hes working with me to switch out the 18" wheels from the adventure II package for 20" wheels, and then it will be perfect !

Re: Buy or Order

I just bought one off the lot. I've been pondering about this Jeep for some time and holding off the order.
Just happen to visit a dealer in a nearby city yesterday and there on the lot was a white/beige V8 Overland. The V8 would have been my only option but color choice was driving me nuts. The car looked great despite still being in it's plastic protection, it wasn't spoken for, so I made the deal and will have it tomorrow.

Congrats! This is the same combination that I am contemplating ordering. Color is also driving me nuts, but this is the combo I am leaning toward.

Re: Buy or Order

That is just what I have been pondering over... tough one to decide.

If there is one available just exact one I want off the dealership, I buy it right away but for certain specifics that I want so it's high likely I really have to order though hate to wait too long. I know mine has to wait one or two months before I could order though whatever I still have to order, I believe.

Assume if I find one off the lot almost right away, I have to lose few certain stuff at least which I don't afford to lose. Tough.

Internet search helps a lot though... ask someone at Jeep dealership maybe?

Re: Buy or Order

I wish they had what I wanted on the lot. I was forced to order the Overland, and the 2-3 month wait is going to kill me!
