This sticky showed up outlining group buy rules shortly after that:

Wrangler Forum has similar rules where forum members cannot sell things without becoming Supporting Vendors on the site.

That's about all I know.
Turns out Koons has been a Supporting Vendor on Wrangler Forum since 2013, so they can sell all they want over there, I guess. But I don't think they support on this site?

I remember there being references to DC group buys (which was probably Koons in VA) and TX group buys on this site, so maybe I got something mixed up? I'm not sure which group buy is still viable on here.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

The group buy in texas is still going on. They just didn't pay to be a sponsor on the site, so the thread got taken down. I talked to them yesterday and they will order new wranglers for 5.5% below invoice.

Which Texas dealer is doing 5% below invoice? I'm having a hard time getting local dealerships to get on the ball and order. Thanks.

Since you have plenty of time, please ask me again once the 16s start running. I'm sure I'll forget in a few weeks.

Damn old age.

The total (invoice and dest fee) of the options I want is $36,782, so with sales tax and other fees, I'm hoping to get out the door for $40k; maybe have to kick in a few hundred more. Hoping I can get one of those $500-off golden tickets in the mail...

I'm so tempted to jump in and get a 2015, but figure I can wait for the 2016 since we're so close. Even though it looks like nothing changes except the VIN plate, still I suppose it's better to get one model year newer. I guess the invoice prices of everything will get a little more expensive in 2016 though.. I'm hoping not more than another $1,000 or so. Since I can't get it until at least Sept, saving a little more won't hurt too much!
Can someone tell me where I need to go in Jeep.com in order to sign up for this "Golden Ticket" I would like to try and to get that myself.

Go to jeep.com, click "Get a brochure", and enter your address. In a few weeks you'll get a big ass booklet with pretty pictures and whatnot. Toss it out, in my experience, that never has the golden ticket. However, you'll then be on the mailing list, and some time after that you may get a little card in the mail with the golden ticket.

Getting on the mailing list is key... they also sometimes e-mail tickets, so search the marketing e-mails for the keyword "bonus cash".

You should do this for a couple Jeep models, and also Dodge, Ram, and Chrysler cars. A golden ticket received for a different model is still good on the Wrangler.

They seem to do campaigns and send a bunch at once. I got mine a week ago on a Grand Cherokee marketing card, and a few other people mentioned they got theirs at the same time. Already ordered my 2016 and will be using my $500 ticket.

I was pretty happy with that until someone on here got a $1,000 ticket! So now hoping for that one to arrive!

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Would that mean able to order Granite when Sept allocation opens or on/after the 28th?

They will open banks on one of the next two allocation dates - August 13th or September 10th.
