    Not arguing on a forum, if you are ever in the St Louis area I’ll be glad to meet you and show you the paperwork.
  2. Has anyone traded-in or sold for cash a stock JL more than originally paid for when new?

    Here the link for the doubters There is a link to the original window sticker on the page, which proves they are asking more than it retailed for brand new. On top of that, there was a rebate at the time I bought plus I get below invoice pricing due to...

  4. New 2021 JLUR 6-Speed - Clutch Smell?

    There was a recall earlier on clutches with air in the system not allowing full disengagement of the friction disc which caused it to overheat and blow apart. The test was to put the emergency brake on, rev it up to 4,000rpm and dump the clutch. If it stalled immediately you were fine, if it...

    Same here, mine was ordered 8/24 and still not built. Scheduled for tomorrow so my fingers are crossed.
  7. Has anyone traded-in or sold for cash a stock JL more than originally paid for when new?

    I did it with my 2019 Tacoma to Carvana and it’s why I’m ordering a Rubicon. Paid $34.500 for it new in 2019 and sold it for $37,700 this month after putting 8500 miles on it. They literally paid me $3000 to drive that truck for a year and a few months.

  9. Is it better to Build and Price or buy off lot?

    The problem with financing through the dealer is they will hose you on the rate, that’s why they get a kickback from the financing company. Always obtain financing outside of the dealer and let them try to beat that rate. So many people are on this forum claiming they are getting smoking deals...
  10. Is it better to Build and Price or buy off lot?

    Don’t worry about % off for comparison purposes. The only thing that matters is the “out the door” price. Having a dealer give you a high percentage off and then tack on a $899 doc fee is just a shell game. Ask them what you will pay cash, out the door with all fees and BS. That way you...
  11. Paint Issues

    From what others have said on here, they are just repainting the panels without addressing the underlying causation. I was hoping they had found a solution but it doesn’t look like it. They are still pumping these out at the factory knowing they are going to be spending thousands to repaint...
  12. Paint Issues

    Really thinking hard about refusing my order when it comes in. It doesn’t sound like FCA has this galvanic corrosion issue solved yet? Not looking good!

    Mine is hand written in because I didn’t go to the dealer to get a new one once it updated to D1, but yours will look identical and have the estimated ship date in the upper left corner like mine does.

    Its It’s on the POC sheet from your dealer. Jeep chat doesn’t have access. Trust me.

    Co Contact your dealer, ask them if you are in D1 and if so what is your estimated ship date.
  16. 2021 JL Build Status - Post Yours

    You should’ve got an estimated ship date when your Jeep went to D1 status. That is the estimated build date.

    Yep, I’m sitting at 4 weeks from order today, and it’s not scheduled to be built for another week and a half. That would make it 5-1/2 weeks from order to build.

    Absolutely. And with today’s technology, there is no reason not to have a “GoPro” set up at every major station at Toledo North that would snap a pic of your Jeep as it progressed down the line. Offer it as an upgrade when ordering, I’d pay $200 for that.
  19. I think I purchased too much Jeep?

    Life is too short to be unhappy. Just be honest with yourself before you make a decision. Buy the vehicle you would drive if you were the last person the planet....or if everyone on earth was blind except get the point. Drive what you want, not what you THINK makes you look cool...
  20. Witnessed the worst case of "death wobble" I have ever seen...

    Oh yes the leaf spring Jeeps do have it as well. All of my flat fenders have at one time or another, and it doesn’t take much play to cause it. In fact, just needing to repack wheel bearings and knuckles is enough to cause it on mine. Pack the king pins and wheel bearings and it goes away for...
