I've got 3 dealers telling me they can make an order and 2 telling me they can't......

Orders for which? Dealer stock or a sold order?

2 of the quotes say Sold Order. 1 doesn't specify. And then the other 2 dealers tell me they "can't build it in the system".

Neither my wife nor I have ordered a vehicle before, so it's all new to us.

It still blows my mind that the explanations differ from each dealership on orders but from what I hear, there are real differences in restrictions between dealers even in close proximity.

When I was shopping dealers I had two with issues adding the tube step, one of which said they were forced to add the all weather mats. Meanwhile 6+ other dealers had no issues with placing my exact order. :facepalm:
*6 hour drive with dealer financing 6.5% below FWP (I have no desire to be on the hook for a terrible interest rate)
*4 hour drive with my own financing 6% below FWP but higher tax rate in a different county. These people still haven't sent an actual quote yet either for some reason.
*Local dealer 15 minutes away 3% below FWP but all of a sudden he is telling us he can't make the order until Friday or Monday because the "chrysler system is down/closed"?
*Other local dealer still tells me they can't make an order for a diesel at all?
*Dave Smith doesn't really seem to want to deal FWP minus 500 bucks or so.

We were all set to order from the local dealer and not worry about getting the best deal for the convenience of it. But now I kinda think this guy might be jerking us around. Isn't it all automated? He is just pressing buttons and sending something through the computer correct? His title is sales desk manager, but I am wondering if he is pretty much just a regular old salesman, and that is why he can't get the Jeep ordered for another 5 days or so?

Am I overthinking it or what? Does it sound right that he can take our deposit, but he can't get the order going for possibly near a week?

I wouldn't give any money until the order can be placed. You are correct it is all computer ordering so not sure why the delay unless they think you are going to change your mind. I feel for you as I just went through some of that and most didn't seem to want my sale. Good Luck and Patience is a virtue

Ahh this reminds me of a dealer where I talked to a salesperson via email and their manager because I called about a different matter a few days later. Simultaneously, the salesperson was telling me that they had to wait for an allocation and could order in a few weeks, while the manager was ready to order for me right away. Of course both went with the "Why don't you come on in?!" attitude. The one where they take you to a back room, suggest that your requests are unreasonable, and then offer to sell you a 2018 Sport for MSRP. :)

Any idea how late into the year you can still get your order delivered? I ordered Nov 18 - it's built and in JB (14 days so far) ? Do they shut down for the two week holiday?

Looking to upgrade my JL 2018 Sport 2-door to a 2020 Rubicon. I live in PA but have heard great things about Leon Travis at Criswell Jeep (Scientic_Explorer). Can anyone provide what I should consider a reasonable discount below invoice for my order?

Many thanks guys...

It will be 7% below invoice, add another 1% for Tread Lightly or some other affiliate reward. I just picked up my Sahara from Leon on 1/6 and got 8% due to working for an FCA Affiliate. Highly recommended - no BS. Call or email Leon!

If a Trade is part of the deal, how does that alter the % off Invoice ? If the Dealer gives 7% off Invoice, plus KBB on trade, that's good !
