If so, I would again suggest waiting until tomorrow, just in case it is simply a case of the 5 yo who updates the system, has taken a nap, but will finish later after he has his juice.

Yes today. I went through this last month with Rhino. It never was avail on the JKURHR. I will keep checking, but have a bad feeling it's not going to happen, we will see. I also have a golden ticket that expires on Feb 1st. Time is running out!

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Well, here is a new one.....I had a salesman ask me if I would prefer leather or cloth interior on a 2- door Rubicon Hardrock edition? I told him that leather is standard on the Hardrock and he told me I can choose either and the price is the same....he also told me that they could not exchange the currently installed 130n radio for a 430n radio. Told me they tried it before but did not function properly....said the 430n needs to come as a factory installed item. Would it be that much trouble for a saleperson to at least try to know something about the product they sell?

Its the old, you get what you pay for. How much over sticker, would you commit to pay, if that money was used by the dealer to pay for a higher caliber/class of sales staff?

In general, I'd agree with that. I just took delivery of my '16 Willys JKU on Saturday, and my salesman knew his stuff. Threw around all the lingo we use here. Helpful, straightforward. My life was set by email (ended up ~4.5% under FWP) before I got there. Delivery process was easy and seamless. They fed me lunch (and offered me ice cream) on my order visit, and fed my family lunch on my delivery visit (more ice cream). I get free washes for life at any of their dealerships nationwide, and they know there's one on my way home from the beach. I didn't have to fight for my Warn recovery kit. They filled the tank. I got a follow-up email today just to make sure everything's OK (and they know I steady filled out the survey). And no, I haven't been visiting Denver.

(Thanks Pat!!)

Not much to add other than based on my understanding of the ordering system, you have until Thursday to order. Assuming this is an IT screwup, you may want to check back tomorrow with your preferred dealer and see if it's been fixed. And then again on Thursday morning if it hasn't been.

What happens if we wait past this Thursday?

Based on what the dealer said, and mind you, this was not said in the context of high pressure sales, there is a settle up (I can't remember the name I saw on the calendar) on orders three days after the ordering opens. I took that to mean the settle up was on the orders filed for that month. It may just apply to dealer stock orders. Unless someone here knows otherwise, and believe me, there are lots of people here who know a lot more than I do, I think the ordering window is small.

The implication of what I think is that any orders after this settlement would have to be rolled forward. Again, all of this is predicated on my limited understanding.

I know this is the 2016 thread, but I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Jeep pickup truck coming in 2017.

No one has mentioned it? There is an entire thread dedicated to it.

2017 pickup confirmed
