There are some dumb ass posts on here. If it was special ordered then nobody should be test driving it, period. A lot porter or salesman may need to move it. But all new vehicles have a few miles on them at least. Has anyone every saw 1 or zero miles?? And, was it supposed to be detailed before it was shipped & then again afterwards? Relax. It'll be fine. Whether it's a Jeep or not.

I'm just Josh'n ya. Your clickbait made it sound like it was gonna be covered in mud. Not a little road spray.

My Sahara 4xE looked worse than that with only 6 miles on the odometer. I gave it a proper detail top to bottom at home because my own experience is dealer detailers can cause more damage than do good.

Check the fuses when you pick it up. My sales guy had no idea what I was doing when I opened the fuse box. 50% clicked when pushed.

Dealer "detailers" are trash. Its a bucket boy with a dirt rag, damp towel and shop broom. Scrubbing swirls and scratches into your brand new paint.

Seems like the tire treads are mud stained. Seems like more then just transport grime.

The dirt deep in the tread is weird but I mean, it's been at a rail yard and loaded on and off of trucks, presumably also in the rain. I'd confirm mileage and give it a good look underneath but you should be fine.

Also, congrats on the jeep! I too have a 2 door white JLR and it's an incredible rig.

Having read many of the posts here I asked the dealer to not let anyone test drive it. He sent me this image as soon as it arrived at the dealership. Doesn't it look like it's been off road in at least water? Maybe that's normal. Lots of dust, must have been from the train ride. Dishman Dodge in Spokane gave me a great deal. See https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/2021-jl-on-42s.70218/ for the build plan

Looks pretty normal. I read somewhere that the storage lot where the line them up for transport next to the plant is dirt, so if it were raining the day......
