Red face Looking to order, a few questions please

I can't find exactly what I want on the lots, so it looks like I will end of ordering. I have a few questions for the forum, if you please:

1. About how long can I expect to wait for delivery from date of order?
2. The Jeep site "build you own" is very cumbersome to use and seem inaccurate (for example, it won't let me configer a Laredo X 4wd with a hemi engine). Is there an alternate site or pdf which will list the options available with each of the trim levels with the option codes, like the dealer order form?
3. Is the power liftgate only available on the Limited and Overland editions?
4. When will the 730N radio available, and for what trim levels?

Thanks
rich mac

Re: Looking to order, a few questions please

I'm in the same boat.

My understanding is:

1. 6-8 weks
3. I think so
4. available now, question is just RER vs RHR?

Re: Looking to order, a few questions please

www.nadaguides.com and www.edmunds.com are pretty good for figuring out option codes but remember, they are not updated as often as the Jeep site and some options may be on the list but not orderable due to restrictions only your dealer will know about.

6 - 8 weeks is what most dealers tell you, 8 - 10 is probably more realistic
Power liftgate is only available on the Limiteds and Overlands
Only the dealer will have the 730N order availability, it's too new. All 730N's from now on are RHR, the RER is done, stick a fork in it.

Go to the capabilities tour section of the Jeep site, it will tell you what features are available on which models. but remember, they may not all be orderable due to restrictions. In fact, I thought I heard the V8 was on restriction on the Laredo's, that might be why it doesn't show on the Build It section of the Jeep site.

NOTE: I just checked through the NADA site and they seem to be current, showing the correct pricing on the 730N as well as current ordering availability of certain packages. It looks like the 730N is only available on Limited and Overland and cannot be ordered on a Laredo. Just buy the Overland and be done with it

My dealer who seems very honest said a customer ordered a town and country minivan with a 430 but wanted the 730, the part shop said it would be $2500, so he said, if you want it, make sure you order it. Again, just what he told me, but doesn't seem the type to bs.

The Mopar list price for the new RHR is $1950.00.
