  1. Why did you buy a Jeep with bad steering?

    Surprised I haven't been pulled over for suspected DWI yet.
  2. JL Wrangler Popular Colors Stats as of 8/23/2018

    I got sting gray. It's definitely a great color. But...I almost wish I had just got black. It's my favorite color, and my safe color. I just figured it was time for a change, and keeping all my other black vehicles looking good is like having another job. Whatever. Too late now. Picking it up in...
  3. Inbound to dealer once on website?

    Mine said "in transit" as of last week, don't recall what day it was when I noticed this but, I got the call yesterday that it had in fact been shipped and was on its way.
  4. New JL owners: How long from date of order to delivery

    Ordered 7/18. Got the call today that it has already leftToledo and on it's way to dealer.

    I ordered on 7/18. Got the call today it has left Toledo and on its way.We'll see how long it takes...
  6. Ordered and doubts

    I'm a black guy. It's my favorite color. All of my current vehicles are black. While I have been fond of other colors like charcoals and darker grays, I always default back to black. So over the last few years I've been really digging these battleship and garage floor grays on the Rams and...
  7. Does anyone actually like start-stop

    Like I said before, the potential battery issue thing is what irks me. And what about wear and tear on the starter? Or do new cars not have starters anymore? Ugh. All this technology. I think I'm gonna yank the 3.6 and drop in a carburated V8. Wait, cant do that because it wont pass state...
  8. Ok, you ordered and are waiting, how are you preparing for the arrival?

    I don't count any chickens til they hatch. I'm not doing anything until its in my driveway. I've learned from experience. Anything can happen. I've walked out on the day of delivery in the past. Getting the reach around at the F&I desk is not fun. On a positive note, just researching, checking...
  9. Dealer listing My ordered JL

    Yup. Mine is on my dealer site.
  10. Does anyone actually like start-stop

    The battery thing concerned me the most. You get one of those surprise dead battery incidents and its a whole rigamaroo to jump it. Or so it seems. From what I read you can't give it a quick boost and be on your merry way, you have to actually charge it. IDK. Not a technology fan. Wish they...
  11. Recommended Dealers List

    Nothing 100% in stone yet. Just a small deposit to get it ordered. Financing in order prior to going in. We werent sure if it would go in my name or the wifes name (we both have good credit and financials), so sales guy said dont worry we'll draw up official sales contract and financing stuff...
  12. Does anyone actually like start-stop

    This could be a deal breaker. I didn't realize all models had this. Thought it was an option. The dual battery thing plus the annoyance of having to shut the damn thing off every time I start it concerns me. The battery thing alone seems to be a potential horror show at some point. I purposely...
  13. Recommended Dealers List

    So, my $34120 MSRP 2 door will be arriving within the next week or 2. Realistically, what should I pay? I know there are variables but what would be the minimum I should expect them to knock off? It was written up and ordered at full sticker but I'm not paying that. No way. I just need...
  14. will a 2 door work?

    2 door would work. It's just not as convenient. I vote for the beater...as the family car. Kids are real messy. I wouldn't do kids in anything new, or old that you care about. I had a museum quality 2nd gen Z28 with my first kid and it was frightening every time we went somewhere. I eventually...
  15. 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL/JLU Base and Options Price (w/ Invoice) (Sport, S, Sahara, Rubicon)

    Nah. I just don't have the time or ambition for such an adventure, even if it meant saving a few bucks. I'll wait til it comes in and try to either get some money off or get them to throw in a freebie like side steps or slush mats or something.
  16. Stock Bridgestone AT's

    Perfect. Won't be rock crawling or thick mud but I do live in a rural area in the northeast, and my driveway is a 1/4 mile dirt road when can be a pita at certain times. As long as they are a dependable multi purpose tire I'll be happy. Also add that I have a 160 mile round trip commute to work...
  17. 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL/JLU Base and Options Price (w/ Invoice) (Sport, S, Sahara, Rubicon)

    I tried to haggle and they were pretty much Wranglers and Rams sell themselves so there are no breaks. And, it's also not a huge volume dealership, but at the same time its the only Jeep-Dodge-Ram place in the area.
  18. 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL/JLU Base and Options Price (w/ Invoice) (Sport, S, Sahara, Rubicon)

    I ordered a sport with AC, 8 speed, ASD, tint and satellite. Came to 34k before tax. I feel like I'm getting raped. Shouldn't I be getting something off? Like some kind of deal.
  19. Shortest Date Ordered to Delivery time

    ^^^^^ What'd you get? I'm guessing the more basic less optioned stuff is being pumped out quick? Wonder if my sport will show up sooner than later. My order was 7/18 and d1 shortly after.
