An AEV spec'ed out one huh... They did tell you that you are required to post pictures here when you receive right?

I actually just came back from the dealer myself - Hydro Blue Rubi Hard Rock
Now, the wait really begins! Take care of her Archer!

Congrats! What build, lift, accessories, Tires, Wheels, color?

Love my 2015 Hydro Blue JK350, 4.5"SC on 37s.
Sold my AEV Pintler wheels as they are not suited to the obstacles and terrain I wheel in. They don't take the beatings I threw at them.

Hey lonestarnation...in addition to pics, you have to give us a ride too!

(Was going to put that you had to let us test drive, but that would have gone too far...even for my purple loving Jeep self).

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

So whats the real poop?
Purple on just one model or what Milous???

Tell ya, I'm 99% put off with the "talk" and games from the Jeep people. Think if there isn't a way to order a $48,000.00 without playing games with the auto maker I'll save $25,000.00 and buy a used one in pristine condition and keep the money for myself.

Tired of the manufacture game.

Thanks for the updates Milous as you know them. We all appreciate it!!

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Haha thanks all. I will indeed post pics. Been waiting several years to get an AEV rig. Hydro blue JK250, argent pintler wheels, heat reduction hood. Gonna be my daily driver so didn't want to get too crazy with the package. Bad news it could be like 3 months since going to AEV after Toledo.

Special thanks to Milous and Archer. You guys rock!

Rubik - when you indicate 4% under invoice are you talking about under MSRP or under dealer invoice. I am getting ready to order and all the dealers I have talk to in Texas are only offering 4-5% under the MSRP Sticker price.


I have also seen some people on this forum refer to the 1% Tread Lightly deal. How do you access it?

Bottom line ----- What is a good deal on a MY16?

You go to Tread Lightly and become a member. They give you their Chrysler company code and you can use it to get your control number from the Chrysler Affiliate Program website. Technically you have to be a member for 30 days before you use the control number, but some have had their dealer accept it before the 30 days.

Not speaking for Rubik, but I called up most of the fleet managers in DFW and Austin. I got 4% below invoice, but that's with the Tread Lightly 1% included. 4% below invoice is basically 1% below holdback, which is about as good as you can hope on a Wrangler. Make sure you're dealing with the fleet manager.
