This made me feel better.
Pat already said essentially the same earlier in the thread. If asked about, the customer will be told it is sold. Pat did go on to say (paraphrasing) that given the way it all works that a desirable Jeep on the website gets people in the door for essentially the ol' bait and switch. Not perfect, but realistic given the systems in play.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I wasn't really trying to fuel anyone's fire. It was more a joke really. As a new owner oh the hr I will also be looking to beef up the jeep and Thor lockers will only be there until I break em. Kin diva mic feature for my light off-roading I hunting trails and easy stuff while i pay off the jeep. I like to let the warranty go before I start doing things that will void it

I know there's already been a link to a review (although the person didn't use lmgtfy.com, so props there!), but I wanted to chime in. I went to my local 4x4 shop when it was time for a lift/tires. I worked with them. They asked me if my Jeep sees snow. When I responded "yes" they immediately said "Duratracs"... I've driven a couple of winters here in CO with them on our 2004 Rubicon. Unfortunately I went from BFG All Terrains and not Mud Terrains, so I can't give my opinion directly (MTRs came off before we moved to CO), but I can say that the Duratracs will not disappoint for snow. No doubt. A couple of weeks ago I went up a muddy/rocky hill that three other Jeeps tried and didn't get up, but I got up. Not sure how much of it was driver and how much was the traction of the Duratracs.

I've got my VIN and last night I checked their website and they are listing it. Kind of makes me think they will want to keep it for a few days and let others test drive it!!!

I know it's in transit now but the dealership is 40 miles away and I can't keep an eye on it everyday!

One of my stipulations on my deal was that my Jeep was not to be used for demonstrations or test drives.

My Jeep arrived at my dealer today. I am picking it up first thing in the morning. I really hope they don't let any potential customers test drive it before I get there in the morning. I would be super pissed if some doofus tears up my transmission in a test drive!

I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Besides making the jeep less desirable for a test drive, is there any other reason to request this?

Wamboo, Can you take some interior pic's? I am still curious did your window stick state Radar Red Stitching Accents? Did your seats have Red Stitching? I cannot wait for mine to arrive (in transit), I got Bright White also. You are right it is Bad Ass!!

My only gripe was the tire shine. It doesn't look right on a Jeep plus mine ended up all over the inside of the wheel wells and on the back fender flare... Minor annoyance.
