Ordered my Jeep!
Last night, I ordered my new Jeep.

It's a '12 Overland, Stone White, Saddle int, 20" Polished rims, V6.
Over the last 2-3 weeks, I was going back-n-forth on the "V6 vs V8" debate, but it came down to a few issues.
I didn't want to pay another $3000.00 (2K, plus $1K gas guzzler tax), and my wife was riding me over the mileage.
Gas here in T.O. is $1.25/L (approx $4.75/gallon).

I was going to rent a V6 Laredo, but instead I took a V6 for a long test drive yesterday (about an hour).
Overall I'm happy, and I can't wait.
The bummer is that it's a factory order, and it'll take 10-12 weeks to arrive.
Oh well, at least it'll arrive in-time for the nice weather.
Thanks for everyone's help.

This forum (and the "other one") have been great. I've learned a lot.

My apologies if you end up reading this on "the other one" as well.
Cheers, Paul.

Congrats, you'll have no problems with the V6. Just got back lastnight from a trip to middle TN and back (over 600 miles) and got 25 mpg! That is me figuring it, not the computer which told me I got 26.5 mpg.

Congrats! I know the wait will suck, but this forum will help a little. :D

I got my Overland Hemi, MG w/ Saddle, BSW/ACC last week also.

Re: Ordered my Jeep!
BTW, Do you need to put down a deposit for factory order?

Re: Ordered my Jeep!
Yes. I had to put a $500 deposit but it is fully refundable if you change your mind. To be on the safe side, make sure the paperwork that you sign explicitly states that as well.

Re: Ordered my Jeep!
Thanks guys!

I gave them $500.00 to order it.
Now I have to be patient for almost 3 months...this will kill me.

I'll post pics when I get MAY!

In the meanwhile, I'll live thru you guys on these forums.

Re: Ordered my Jeep!
Thanks a lot. Is it harder to negotiate the price for factory order?

Congats. Great color combo. Also since you didn't order any optional packages it is possible that you could get it sooner than you think. Mine took 7 weeks of which 20 days was transportation.

Depends on the dealer. I went to 3 dealers. #1 was sticker for orders. #2 did not want to do factory orders all. #3 was invoice plus some goodies so he got the order. Of course that was a year ago before they ramped up production.
While I do understand how floor planning works, it still seems to me that a factory order should be a no brainer for a dealer. Car in, car out the next day.

Re: Ordered my Jeep!
Sounds great, wkluvin. Congrats! if you don't mind, please post a picture of the interior from the outside of the Jeep with a door open when you get it home. I want to see how the saddle interior looks on a white GC while seeing both the interior and ecterior at the same time. My local dealer has none with that combo. I had planned on a BFG with a saddle interior until I saw the BFG in person - looked almost exactly like the pearl black GC is was parked next to! Thanks!
