re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I think this is some sorta conspiracy involving the XP. They are going on strike at midnight just before order opening window. My guess is they will be on strike for 4 months (the exact time frame for ordering XP) they will comeback the next day and jeep will say sorry but we have to stay on schedule for the next release date and catch up on delayed orders so they will have to skip XP all together.

As long as they get the labor dispute settled before May 2 so as not to delay my Hypergreen JKU - waiting until next summer is already cruel enough...maybe both sides will agree to take less money so customers have more $$$ for ACCESSORIES!!!

Ordered my Rubicon Hard Rock in mid August 15'.

Last I heard in the news (Month ago), was that they reached an agreement.

Now they are going to strike? Dealers better be honest about this.

My dealership said nothing of this!

I believe a TENTATIVE agreement had been reached - always has to be voted on by the union members...everyone wants our money so they will work it out...

So you think your dealership should have known in August that there was a possibility of a UAW strike in October?

Are you sure about that? Sept 15th or something there was a tentative deal, and they voted against it.


I am hoping you have some inside info, but are you sure you are not speaking of just a few weeks ago?

I hope your info is correct?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

My 16' Jeep wrangler Rubicon HR should arrive by 11/13/2016 based on a recent search. Special "Thanks" goes out to Milous.

However, here's my opinion,,,authorized dealerships who sell these vehicles are in contact with Fiat Chrysler on a daily basis. It is the dealerships responsibility to keep their customers informed regarding their purchase or pre-order.

It is extremely hard to swallow that dealerships appear to know nothing about any pending strikes, tentative agreements, possibilty of any strikes that could directly affect the customers purchase when it comes to building and completion of their vehicle.

In my case, i was fortunate to know my sales manager and my order was expited to the factory.

However, my dealer did not keep me updated regarding my order! If it was not for Milous,,,I would still be in the dark regarding the status of my order!
