Factory order - parts swap possible?

Just a quick question on doing a factory order. Say I wanted an Overland but prefereed the wheels or grille on the summit for example - is it possible to have this put on at the factory even though its not a packaged option for example? Maybe for an additional cost? Otherwise guess best option is to try and negotiate with the dealer for after build inatall?

Thanks

You wouldn't be able to have that done at the assembly plant. Their build process isn't set up to allow that. That's something you'd have to see if you could work out with your dealer.

Yea, I've had success in the past with the dealer swapping wheels or other parts off cars they have on the lot (for example, if I notice a scratch on a part that can be swapped out). Always helps to negotiate it before they've got your money though :-)

Yep, other people out here have worked out wheel swaps with their dealers.

No, you cannot do that kind of thing with a factory order. You can make those changes aftermarket, however, once you have your vehicle in-hand.

I found the Summit 20" wheels on line awhile ago. Shop around as there are some good deals; below what a dealer would sell them for. Just for Jeeps is one. Ebay has some as well. Some wheel shops were open to taking new Overland take offs as a trade-in. Any place Tire Rack uses for local mounting will do the tire swap for you.
