So JeepChat just said....

Randolph: What the system shows is that your Black 2018 JEEP WRANGLER RUBICON has been delivered to the dealership.

The sad part is I am not sure I believe it but....maybe....Just maybe.... It's 9AM here so the dealer just opened.
Thanks for the info and Twitter here I come. I’m also in Southern California in orange county

I was inspired by your #FreeMyJeep campaign and started something similar earlier this week. You tweets were awesome. I need to adjust a few things based on your advice but my status did change 2 days ago. So maybe.... Congrats on getting yours!


Oh just checked Twitter and it appears I got a nibble....

OK for anyone who believes in social media, hello Twitter! Taking the advice of my buddy from Cali, I twittered @jeep cares and @[email protected]_NA, I got a reply in less then 20 min. They wanted my vin#.
OK this is kind of weird about three hours later the dealer calls me and tells me my vehicles there and being PDI’ed. The deal was told three days ago to three weeks. For those of you who want to find out where your vehicle is either tweet or open an account at Twitter and send one to jeep cares and jeep Chrysler, good luck!
I ordered my jeep Rubicon Unlimited February 9 and just arrive today.

Its me again ... a new UPDATE

It was there !!! #FreeMyJeep must have worked :) They had trucked it in...it did not arrive via rail. The darn thing was covered in mud, gravel and dirt...they hadn't had time to do a prep on it before I got there. Quick inspection and it was all there.

I bought the Dual Top Group and found something I was not expecting. The hard top had a headliner pre-installed. I was expecting just basic white. Nice surprise. I was also surprised to see that the All Weather Floor mats that I thought were factory installed...sitting in the back with the soft top. Not a big deal...just thought they were to be installed at the factory.

We also found a pink Quality control document inside. It received its initial post build QC report in early March. it had what they are terming a RT -RR WHL FLARE SCRATCH RR SURFACE. It then proceeds to list 1 part replaced and no other quality issues found.
That seems all and good :)

For those interested in a great dealer I went to Huntington Beach Jeep and met with Fred Latasa. Great bunch of peeps...fabulous service....super smooth experience. They have a specialty HB JEEP Performance group that is really great too. I only have one pic so far,

should have more tomorrow. I having the lift kit put on and some 35s so we will see how it goes. Hopefully will have it tomorrow....fingers crossed.

Hope you all get your jeeps soon.

Now thats a beautiful Rubi. Much better condition in the show room than mine when I saw it.
50 miles in and loving it. Only thing I notice is off is the analog speedometer and the digital one in the center don’t match. They are of 2-3 mph. Love how light and easy the freedom tops are and the bag is so much improved with the built in track holder.

When i got to the dealer they tried charging me $51698. The MSRP was $54965 and they had it on website for $50128. I am supposed to get 1% below invoice. Also the lease payment for 36 months 15k/yr was $722. This all seemed wrong. I questioned it. Got it for $49500 and the finance guy figured out he ran the lease figures based on 2018 Jk not JL. Payment is now $650. All in all happy. 113 days wait feels like nothing now that I have her.

Um I don’t want to rain on you’re parade or happiness but I think we all should boycott that dealer or like socially put down that dealer for you.
