I ordered mine from Galeana Jeep in Fort Myers FL in December. Pricing finally came out, and now dealer wants $20k over MSRP. So I canceled that order and will find another dealer to buy my future vehicles and parts from. #StartingTheWaitAllOver
Was a deposit placed? If so, did you agree to MSRP pricing before placing it and are you getting the deposit back?

A deposit was put down, but they wouldnt agree to pricing since it wasnt released yet. I believe by law they have to give me the deposit back.

it's complicated
I was looking online and on eBay there were a couple Rubicon takeoffs that sold for $1500-$1900. So I am hoping about the same, maybe even 2k since they are unique. Mine will have only the 10 miles on them to get the Jeep from the dealer to my house. Here are a few I found.
The rubber alone is worth $1500+ (MT). With that said, I've sold rims w/tires to my dealer in the past for $1800 during the purchase. But with this jeep, I'm leaving everything stock until the first set of tires wear out (should be about 40k miles).

I have looked at bronze aftermarket rims and not finding a lot of options I like.

If they didn’t want to return the deposit, I’d contact FCA and legal council immediately.

Is there a “slimy/dishonest dealership thread” here? If so, add their name to it.

Before anyone quotes “capitalism” and Adam Smith’s “Invisible Hand”, if the dealership knew they might not sell at MSRP, they should never had taken the deposit or even offered the opportunity to build one without being clear there would be an ADM.

If they were upfront about the 20k ADM and they were able to get it, then good for the dealership. This is not the case.

I went to D1 today, with a ship date of 4/10

VIN ending 634210. Ordered 11/19. Granite, half doors, power top.
Today I was going to start a 1 week no check after another disappointing up date when I ready your post and thought seems like they've been building them in batched maybe I'll luck out and ....

"I can see all the required materials for your order have been gathered and the plant has sequenced your order for production, it should be entering the build very soon! I recommend checking back in the next week or so and we would be happy to check on your order. "

Looks like I won't be long behind you. :clap:

I got the same response as well this morning. Some progress is better than none. 🤞🤞

Hey guys. Its exciting to see the 392 status is now moving! Hopefully they will show up at dealers very soon.
I'm not looking for an exact number, but curious if anyone has found a dealer willing to sell below MSRP? Some of the quotes above are insane.

Just an update, got the message from my dealer this AM, my order has FINALLY moved to D1 status, with a tentative build/ship date of April 9th!

Still another month away till it's even built, but at this point I'll take any progress as a reason to celebrate!

That date has got to be like seeing the light at the end of a tunnel. Can't wait to hear mine.

😭 They told me last week all the parts were gathered and they should schedule soon then this week they told me they were still gathering parts. I hope I just got someone that didn't look hard. This wait is a killer

Don't read too much into it, they are all over the map with their responses. On the positive side, I got that same message about expecting an "update soon" around two weeks ago, and went D1 today, so hopefully you'll do the same within a week or so, or even sooner! :)
