Sounds right. I ordered mine on the 6th and it's still in C status on Dealer Connect. Bet we get picked up in the next wave.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So I've got a question, I know that it is kind of an unspoken rule not to speak about other dealerships on this forum, but I contacted my only two local dealerships yesterday to ask about ordering a 2015 Rubicon Hard Rock Edition and both salesman said..."I don't think we're selling 15's yet I think we're still ordering 14's". That doesn't exactly inspire confidence. So I'm wondering if there is some sort of Wrangler certified dealership I need to be looking for, or if this just what I should expect at this point in the year. Also, Pat or Milous if you have dealerships anywhere near East TN please let me know I'd love to buy from you guys.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I'm in the same boat as you I think. I don't have the knowledge of who I should be dealing with in my area. So I wrote the following spec, and emailed it to 8 local dealers. The responses I have received back over the last few days has clearly shown me whos got the moves, and whos reading from a script. Out of 8 dealers, I have three that seem to be at the top of their game. Without knowing the dealers, I say include several at first, and pick the best. This is all I sent them, and the good ones were able to fill in the blanks, while the not-so-good ones just addressed what I asked them to do.

2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
4 Door: (MSRP/Invoice) (NOT including $995 destination)
*Rubicon Unlimited - $35,195 ($33,168)
*Rubicon Unlimited Hard Rock package (formerly "Rubicon X") - $4,300 ($3,827)
*3.6L V6 24V VVT
*5-SPEED AUTO W5A580 TRANSMISSION (DGJ)
*Hydro Blue Pearl Coat (PBJ) (aka Atlantic Blue) or New: Tank Clear Coat Straight Shade (PGK) (Production start 09/02/2014)
*Black Interior
*Hard Rock Sound system
8 SPEAKER Plus Subwoofer

1 Alpine 12-Channel Amp (552W)
2 3.5" I/P Speakers
2 6.5" Front I/P Speakers
2 3.5" Soundbar Speakers
2 6.5" Sound Bar Speakers
1 8x12" Enclosure QVC (4 channels) New Sound Bar and Speaker Pods

*4.10 axles
*Remote start
*Uconnect 730N with NAV
*A/C with automatic temperature control
*Supplemental Front Seat-mounted side air bags
*Dual Top Group
*Max Tow Package

These are the basic requirements. Please let me know if I missed some pricey option that would affect the quote. The little things we can go over after I select a dealership.
Thank you,

Kinda have to remember that the VAST majority of new car sales are spontaneous decisions made on the spot and your average salesman (even the internet expert that handles emails) is used to a system of selling off the lot or swapping inventory with nearby dealers to make a sale.

Jeep allows custom orders, but not all manufacturers do, and even amongst Jeep buyers it is rare. Our family works directly with the owners of a smaller-city dealer and even with consistent, repeat business they still do their best to push inventory first...

Brian, if you plan to wheel and mod your Jeep you also want to take into consideration maintenance. Which dealer is going to be most friendly to someone who uses their Jeep as a Jeep

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I e-mailed 8 local dealers... 3 responded and all of them said they can only do 1% below invoice because that is all that was "legal" unless you have the family/employee rate. I may have to go out of State. I live in DE and where I'm located I can be in NJ, PA, MD, DC/VA in under 2 hrs drive (30 mins to NJ, PA and MD). Anyone know the process of buying from out of State as far as taxes and tags go?

Depends on state rules. Be careful you don't get stuck paying sales tax in both states

You pay taxes for the state you will be registering it in.

Make sure the state you buy in gives you "out of state resident tax exempt status".
