2015 JK Order Waiting Room!

Well, I finally did it! I ordered a 2015 JKURHR in SUNSET Orange! Got a killer deal without playing one dealer against another. I did it be e-mail. Asked 6 dealers, got pricing from 5. Told them I had a Tread Lightly Affiliate deal and was looking for something around 3 to 3.5 % off invoice.

One came back at 1% off, 2 offered 2% off, one was at 3.5% off and one was lower than the Texas and Washington deals.

I did not ask anyone to drop their prices. In the midst of getting the pricing Jeep closed Sunset!

Then, they reopened it I went to the dealership and in 65 minutes I had the VON. Great experience. Could not have done it without the help of this Forum.

Now I hope they do not put a restriction on SO again.

Time to take up some space in the Waiting Room and to figure out what modest lift and tire combo will work best with the stock Rubi Wheels. Suggestions please!

Waiting for my new JKURHR!

How did you get a VON if the color isn't even in production yet? Aside from the generic build sheet that I got from the dealer stating what I'd be getting, I've not heard anything from Jeep in the 2 weeks since I ordered my copper brown JKU..

Should I have a VON by now?

You should already have a VON . I had a VON in less than an hour. I believe it gives you confirmation that the order was placed.

Nope. No VON here. I've got a Configuration Preview page and a purchase and sales agreement, but under the VON section, it is blank. I contacted my sales rep yesterday and he said he had no updates..

I've not received anything from Jeep yet either. Should I be concerned?

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Cherox,

I had the same thing happen to be with a dealer around my house. They just seem to be dragging their feet, and did not give me an update the first few days. The salesperson tried to cover for the guy that ordered the vehicles for the dealership. She told me finally that my car wasn't the only one being ordered and that he would get around to it. Supposedly, he had ordered it after a few days, but by then I had gotten a better deal somewhere else, and had my VON for the Sunset Orange within an hour. I like to work with people that do not like procrastinate and that communicate with their customers clearly.

I hope my salesman isn't dragging his feet at this point. Its been two weeks since I ordered. I already left a "non-refundable" $1000.00 deposit and signed the P&S agreement. I hope this is just a case of a lazy salesman and not one where they forgot my order. I was assured that it made it onto the allocation. .. I'm somewhat anxious about this whole process.. I've never even bought a new vehicle before, let alone having one custom ordered!

Cherox,

I would call him tomorrow and ask him for the VON. I think it's a case of lazy salesperson and nothing else. Or, ask him for the deposit back and do business with someone that is on their"A" game. pm me if you need my guy to get you a good deal and get you the VON you most desire.

I got the VON because I told the salesman I wanted to wait while the order was entered into the Jeep system. He was surprised that I asked for it and that I intended to wait. Most people are content to take the sales order and leave, allowing the dealers order entry person the time to do it whenever they get around to it. The salesman had to convince her to do it while I waited.

It does show that the color is not yet in production. I do not expect to hit D or D1 until after November 3rd or 4th when SO is supposed to go into production.

Fingers crossed.


Waiting for my new JKUHRR!!

Looks great! I plan on heading straight from the dealership to Discount Tire whenever I receive my Jeep to put some 33's on. I've already got a Teraflex leveling kit waiting to be installed. Are those 15 inch wheels?

Thank you sir. She is ahead turner. Not many hydro blues in town. They are 2857516 Duratracs with 16in level 8 zx wheels. Bought them through Discount Tire Direct ebay Got 100 bucks off every 2 tires and 100 off the wheels. 300 bucks off total. Saved a whole lot by not going with 17s too and also saved weight. Really cant feel a difference evrn from my 29s

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

So i gotta say I am getting a little fed up with the factory at this point. I am now on day 47 of waiting for my car. The order was placed for it on 9/12. The build was completed on 9/30. I was informed it would be shipping out 10/1, instead from 10/1 to 10/20 it was in "I" status. Then on 10/21 it was moved into "JS" status for storage on the lot and would be shipping out on 10/23. It is now 10/28 and after talking with IAMJEEP several times they said that since the order has been on for 45 days or more they can schedule it as urgent now and a supervisor would call me by Friday to let me know what is going on. This is the most frustrating thing needing a car and not getting any answers what so ever........
