FCA and its dealers are probs wringing their hands right now trying to determine how much to sell these for. Pretty sure they are following threads and such to get an idea what potential buyers are willing to fork over. While some dealers are offering discounts on current models - the 392 will probs get full MSRP or more. So very good margins.

Should provide a nice injection of power and torque if you really need it. But seems more like a high speed desert runner vs slow speed rock crawler. The diesel or electric might be better with more clearance and better ratios for that. For our purposes a stock Rubi has just enough power and pull for our needs in the wet and snow. While pegged on dry it redlines just fine. Not 4.5 fast by any stretch but decent. Cost for us with 5K used bordered on cheap vs a lot more at MSRP. Just be careful not to roll the 392 doing something real silly.
Some will know how to drive it and use right and some will be rolling it the first month on the highways

There are suckers born every minute and that dealer is making quite a margin there.
That Aside, my dealer in PA is estimating (392 just to be clear) roughly 65K and they will
not mark it up, just straight MSRP.
For the Diesel and 3.6 this dealer is well below cost.
Spoke with my dealer, the sales rep I spoke with ordered one for himself as did their finance guy.

When I asked about pricing, he said it wasn't available yet but I should expect around $75k - $80k. He said he's basing that on the fact that a fully loaded JLUR is around $65k and then add the $10k for the 392 package....I was pretty much done talking with him after that.

13.0 quarter mile is fun, but by no means uncontrollable. I get it has a higher center of gravity and you can not corner it like a sports car.

So most dealers received an allocation of 1-3 and this dealer let employees order them? I call total bullshit. After 25 year's in the business owners care about dollars not employees. Cool story.

Don’t worry those will be for sale in the dealer showroom with those fat little ADM stickers on them just waiting for the first stupid person to come in and buy them. There are plenty out there.

Do you guys know what kind of wheel is this? I really dig the look. Is this something that can be ordered from Mopar, dealer or someone else? I presume it should fit the 2021 JLU Rubicon.

Those look like the Mopar bead lock (capable) wheels.

They are the Mopar Beadlock capable wheels. If you live in Denver, pm me. I’ll be selling my wheels and tires when I take delivery.

The Mopar wheels coming with the 392 are not the Mopar bead lock capable wheels in the image of the pre-production vehicle above (part number 77072466ab). An easy way to tell them apart is counting the number of bolts around the outer ring.

Aside from looking different, the 392 will come with 17x7.5 beadlock capable wheels as opposed to the 17x8 Wheels in the image. The wheels in the image have the beadlock ring painted black.

Some people have issue running 35/12.5/17 wheels on 7.5 inch rims, most do not. Haven’t heard of any issues though.
Hope this helps

I've run lot's of 12.5 tires on 7.5" wheels and never had a problem. Hell I know people who put 13.5s on them.

Yeah, I see they are not exactly the same but would you say 77072466ab are the closest looking ones to what's shown in 392 promo video? I found them here https://www.klgartu.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=182239, but $99 per wheel looks very suspicious. Everywhere else this wheel goes for $320+. What do you guys think?
