The thing I do not understand is the fact that the tech in these Jeeps are a little dated, so why do they cost so much- $50,000 for a Jeep is insane. Single axle makes since for a 4X4, but requires no retooling, no new engineering, no going back to the drawing board and no hiring a bunch of engineers too do a major overhaul. Not to mention the fact that the body has not changed in decades. Although it may be true that they will sell them for what they can get for them, but the US auto makers have not been exactly spot on price per car. $10,000 more would buy a BMW fully loaded and superior in technology. A good argument would be that a BMW could not role through the mud, but come on, the Jeep is basically a toy. Don't take this as a rant, but more of a concern, LOL.!
I got mine for about 6k under MSRP

Good deal. Every dealer I go to, they always have the MSRP and then the dealers asking price which is always a few grand or higher over the MSRP. I know not to pay that, but it is annoying because it makes me not get along with the salesperson and not want to deal with them.

What helped me was that I signed up a few months ago for Tread Lightly ($100 membership level). With that you qualify for Chrysler affiliate pricing, which is no more than 1% under factory invoice.

So, that is your starting point for any/all negotiations. That really takes the awkwardness out of it. A few places were like acting like I was asking for something crazy when I mentioned that, and I quickly explained and they folded. But, you'll find, the ones that don't want to play ball will give you that exact quote with no real "deal".

The ones that are motivated to make a sale will go under than 1%, you just have to find them.

Initially when I called Jeep chat they said my Wrangler would arrive between the 23rd and 29th. Called yesterday and it has been updated to the 15th to the 21st! Dealer said its probably sitting at rail yard waiting for truck transport. I work every day of the week and with the dealership being four hours away I think I may have some sick time to punch in!

Hi, new here. I got my VIN yesterday. Probably this is answered many times in this thread, but couldn't find. How do I track my Jeep? Thanks!

Florida dealers???

Sent vehicle specs to 5 dealers. Only 3 responded.

Best was $3,000 below MSRP. FL dealer's have Admin Fees $400 to $600 & they don't want to give it up!!

Has anybody found a good FL Dealer or do I need to go north to GA?

Thanks

Sign up for Tread Lightly $100 membership, that will guarantee you pay no more than 1% under factory invoice. Avoid the BS you're dealing with now.

And on top of that, the admin fees are limited to $75. That is the deal that comes from FCA itself. If the dealer wants to go below they can, but that is the max you would pay with affiliate pricing.
