Re: 2016 Wrangler Information Thread

IMHO, that might actually make it a bit worse. With a check in hand, you are taking away from them any possibility of the kick-back they get when they do the financing in house. ;)

Re: 2016 Wrangler Information Thread

I would say around $41,000.

Independent of that, is your trade. A good deal on the new vehicle all too often means a bad deal on your trade. They might offer you only, like $2K to $2.5K,...

Re: uConnect 15.26.1 is buggy; I want to downgrade.

Could you, instead, just stop paying Sprint, and Sprint will disconnect your Uconnect Access from their network?

Re: New Rubicon Owner

IMHO, it would be rather tough to even reach 60K miles in 5 years, crawling along on a trail in 4WD-low. :D

Re: Will the 2016 Jeeps be safe from hacking?

Wranglers don't have such a system at all. So, you'll be safe buying a 2016 Wrangler.

Re: 2016 Wrangler Information Thread

I am anxious to see if your Hard Rock actually shows up with cloth seats. I am of the mind that eventually your order will be kicked back due to the cloth seats being selected.

Re: Rubicon Hard Rock Price

Though, on the original one, the seats were done in this really cheap vinyl, not real denim.

Re: 2016 Wrangler Information Thread

If you're looking for the official Jeep answer, you will have to patently wait until Sept 1.

Preliminary info is just that, and while accurate at some point in time, is subject to change.
