I tried all the local dealers, about 1k off MSRP is all they would do.
Ordered from Kim in Conway, AR.
Gonna make a road trip out of it when it comes in
I got 5% under invoice up in St. francisville. All the BR dealers were just as you experienced. I was a bit shocked that none of them were really coming off of MSRP more.

5% below invoice is impressive! I got close to that but not quite that and I am friends with the guy. Got a decent trade in though which helps us both out.

So just to help everyone out with timing to LA/MS here is my update:

Ordered on 12/29
Hit D pretty quickly
Hit G (trim) on 1/27
Hit I (build done and in quality inspection) on 1/29
Hit KZ on 2/3 (released from plant and awaiting shipping)
ETA to dealer is 2/17-2/21

FWIW I ordered a rubicon, white, premium soft top, automatic, trailer/tow package, infotainment group, safety group, steel bumper group, LED lights, cold weather package, black wheels, all weather mats, proximity keyless entry. Not sure if that makes any kind of difference to timing but I added quite a lot of options. Only hard top, leather seats, and body colored fenders aren’t added.

I ordered a granite rubi with ver similar options on 1/4. Hit G, I, & KZ on the exact same dates. Mine has a dealer ETA of 2/17. Looks like they got built together.

Good deal. Looks like your overall build is about a week less than mine then.

Anyone in la received theirs? Mine still hasn’t been released for shipping but they are still giving an ETA to dealer of 2/17 to 2/21 which seems impossible. Dealer said it looks like shipping on the 16th and expects 6 days

Ah man, any idea what happened with that?

I actually got confirmation that mine is on a rail car and scheduled to be at the dealer between 2/20 and 2/24 now.

Unfortunately, no. Jeep Chat has nothing for me and all the dealer can see is that it was “Built Pending Inspection” 1/27 and appears to have just sat there since then. I’m wondering if the initial KZ was in error or if something happened but I suppose I won’t ever know for sure.

Exciting news for you though!! Be sure to post some pics & fill us in on what you think when you get it! :like:

Contacted Jeep last night and asked why my jeep had been in inspection so long. Wouldn’t take “I don’t know” as an acceptable answer. Finally I was told they were researching it and would call me back. When I got my tracking update from a dealer friend this morning he said my jeep was in KZ status as of yesterday evening, but no ETA yet.

That’s crazy. My dealer confirmed that mine is coming between tomorrow and Saturday. So I am hoping that worst case I can get over there on Saturday and pick it up.

Mine went pretty quick once it got to KZ - couple of weeks. Then again, I dont have it yet so who knows.

Not sure if KZ was a coincidence or if it had something to do with my call, but movement is movement. Hopefully I’ll get an ETA today or tomorrow.

We should have a meetup when a few of us get our JLs & take a ride of one of the ORV parks around here!

Enjoy those new JL's you lucky bastards.
