Yeah, there was an 8 am spot so we took it. We left a little after 10 am. Smooth and easy process.

I will say the lot is full of custom ordered Jeeps and they are a really small team/dealer. Everyone should keep that in mind if you don’t always get an immediate response. They are literally juggling multiple customers at the same time and really want to help everyone. Renee is the best and will take care of you. Just be patient. Great price and customer service are hard to find.
Being in Tennessee already certainly helps. I hit the road at 5 to make my noon appointment.

And I would echo everything Tyson said about Gupton. Awesome experience with great people, but please be kind to them. They are a small dealership juggling dozens of customers a day. I didn't get my second key fob and they overnighted it to me.

This is why I try to keep communication with them to a minimum and only reach out when really necessary.

Not overwhelming their small staff with questions that can be answered elsewhere is just good karma imo and the least that people can do for them.

2 door Willys Sport
Ordered: 2021-10-27
Arrived at the dealership: 2021-11-06

It was missing the all weather floor mats, but they had taken $165 off the price of the vehicle.

There is ONE other thing that I just discovered. The Jeep lists to one side very slightly. The left side is about 1/2 inch lower than the right side. I have measured to the same points from the ground to the frame and I have also measured from the top of the axle to the bumper thing that is on the body. Same story. This seems unacceptable to me but I'm not sure if this is common or not.

All 4 tires same air pressure? Mine were at 38 psi. Dropped to 35 psi rides much better.

Excellent question, but yes. They are overinflated at the moment, and I'll be taking care of that, but they are all overinflated to within a pound of each other.

Also, now that I think about it the tire inflation wouldn't affect the measurement from the top of the axle to the body bumper. What IS that thing called?

Just noticed you're from Knoxville (my hometown, I was KPD and still own a house there on the west side). Gupton, in Springfield TN, will five you a fantastic under invoice deal for only a 3 hour drive, one way,, when it gets delivered.
Started at RMFD, later went to one of the Guvmint FDs in the Shhhh Town. Might have to give them a call. I was just at the Harper dealer in Alcoa today, not sure they're willing to go much below MSRP at the moment, even on a custom order.

I left to work at DOE as a tactics/firearms instructor, then Blackwater for 3 years, then went independent for the list 15 years teaching the same stuff to government folks. Still holding on to retiring back to Tennessee in 2 years and traveling in the motorhome pulling one of my Jeeps.

I ordered my Rubi on 9/16/21... still waiting.

I also ordered a manual transmission with proximity, steel bumpers, gorilla glass and trailer tow. It's been in transport now for three weeks. Who knows when it will actually show up...

Well Im at 19 weeks and just this week I finally have movement. Paint stage on Monday, as of today JB status! Fingers crossed for a jeep by xmas!!
Your Wrangler is fully built by now if it went into paint Monday. The only delays might possibly be QC. It might take extra time if defects are found and items need to be corrected. There are thousands of built Wranglers waiting to be corrected or fixed after being built. Other than that logistics for shipping which can be the main hold up. They will not let a truck or train leave unless every spot on the transport is filled. I suspect you will get your Wrangler pretty soon.
