I read somewhere that the plant runs 2 shifts 6 days a week and puts out 800 a day. Not sure if that's correct ArcherAce could answer this.
my dealer said my order was the 2152 wrangler ordered and it is scheduled to be built on the 3rd day of production. so that math kinda works
Two shifts, 10 hours each, 6 days a week, 400 per shift. They try to get a shift to run each sunday, but the suppliers have trouble keeping up.

Like a very small AA somewhere on the wrangler sticker would be cool
Pm me your Vin once the MY starts and I'll keep an eye out for your wrangler

Unbelievably lame and uneducated statement. I have alot of respect for people who work at dealerships because they have to deal with people like, um... well let's just say "people" on a daily basis.

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Information Thread

In looking at prices and discounts...what would y'all consider a good percentage off MSRP price?

I know some people have paid 5% and better under INVOICE in the past. But I'm interested in knowing what percentage is a good deal off of MSRP.

ArcherAce, thanks for staying along with this thread! It's very cool to have details like how many shifts are run and what production numbers are like on the Wrangler line. Helps with the waiting while looking forward to my Jeep delivery day!

Holy shit! Enjoy your labor day weekend then. As a matter of fact after you get the decals on my jeep on the 10th, you should take some time off for some R&R! LOL

My rule of thumb has been roughly 10% below MSRP... 30k vehicle I'd be looking for 3k off.

The last couple Wranglers I bought at EP (5% under invoice), equated to about $2500 below MSRP on a $30k Jeep. $3k might require a military discount, golden ticket, or some such
