Ordering a specific 2014 JGC?

I want a specific JGC (colors/features with V6) and don't mine waiting for it. Obviously I will ask the dealer these questions, but checking for any feedback/advice on the process.

Q1. What sort of down payment is required/typical?

Q2. How much paperwork would I end up signing for the order?

Q3. What happens if I change my mind while waiting or when it arrives?

Q4. Is there some sort of status checking to monitor the progress?

Q5. Anything else I should know?

Re: Ordering a specific 2014 JGC?

1- No more than $500
2- An order form
3- Make sure order form indicates you can cancel and get deposit back.
4- There are 2 > VOTS on the Jeep website will track progress until it ships.
Mots on this website (Must be level 3 or higher member) will track from build scheduled through delivery to dealer.
5- Shop around for price. Check wk2jeeps.com for lots of info about the Jeep including list and invoice prices.

1. Varies from dealer to dealer but usually 500-1000
2. I've never signed any paperwork on an order, but that varies with each dealer
3. You have a little while after your order is placed until I think it's in the D1 status
4. Jeep has a system called vots to track, but it's not highly accurate, however if you become a level 3 member on this site, you can follow it in mots, very accurate and updated daily(this is what I and many others did)
5. Just keep reading the threads and posts on this site and you'll learn a ton🍺

Re: Ordering a specific 2014 JGC?

Q1. Typically the dealer might ask for a deposit of around $500 to place a custom order.
Q2. About one extra sheet.
Q4. You can track through Jeep's site, or if you are a paying member this site will offer more frequent updates.

Re: Ordering a specific 2014 JGC?

I paid a grand, signed an order sheet, didn't cancel, became a Level 3 member here on JG and tracked it through MOTS, and have been geeking out on these boards ever since.
