Neurotic here for sure. on another note what size tire are people going to throw on their 392 BEFORE any upgrades? I Think I'm going to go with a 35's for a few reasons. first reason, I'm planning on putting a large down payment and will have limited funds for upgrades for a while. That being said I plan on hitting the trails immediately and don't want to be paying for any massive repairs while paying this bad boy down. I'm currently in Washington and plan on moving back to Colorado so I'm looking at Toyo's open country AT III, Falken wildpeaks or Duratracs in that order. What do some of you guys plan on putting on your 392?
Mine’s going on a diet its too heavy
Rock Hard 4x4 Aluminum Stubby front bumper and I will not be running a winch with this build. If i get in trouble that’s what friends are for.

Rusty 4x4 spare tire delete. I’ll throw my spare in the back when i do any hard wheeling or when it’s required.

37” BFG KMO2. No heavy mud terrains for this build. The 37“ KMO2 are more like a big 36” tire plus the lightest 37” off road tire out there easier on those axles.

If wheel spacers are required to run the stock mopar wheels then adios will be running Teraflex Nomads it a lighter wheel anyway.

I might just want to lift the wheel clearance a little higher if so i will be installing https://teraflex.com/shop_items/jlu...lift-no-shocks?vehicle=JLU Wrangler Unlimited
It really depends on the wheel clearance especially concerning the rear fender/bumper and depending on how big the rear stock bump stops are.
Eventually I will be putting a full new off road suspension just depends on who manufactures one, in the meantime I’m going to get my moneys worth the stock suspension.

Same plan on lift. Trying to figure out if I can do a small spacer lift with the Mopar kit on there without too much drama to fit 37" KO2's (on 17x9's with +18 offset - same that we run on current JLUR)

Looking
After getting this note from yet another dealer, I was about to give up hope...
1611721740805.png


Then this small dealer replies to my question as to if they would accept an order for a 392 at MSRP with "Sure" (like they were getting away with something). So I write back and ask when can I meet... he asks... whats a "392"... I had to look again to make sure this was really a jeep dealer... after explaining I was talking about the new Wrangler 392 Rubicon and would he confirm they would accept the order at MSRP... they said yes, so I went down there today and ordered it !! I am way behind all you other guys so lord knows when I will ever see it but at least I got in line and didn't have to pay a ridiculous ADM... So these guys could not add the Tech Group or the Safety Group or the +4gal tank, they said they were not listed as options...maybe all those items are standard on the 392... at anyrate these guys were smart to take the order, they now have a new happy customer plus a sale at full MSRP on probably most expensive Wrangler these guys have ever sold... BTW... can someone tell me how I can track the order, not surprisingly my sales agent didn't know...can't wait to hear that 6.4L V8 SRT HEMI !!

I can't speak for the fuel tank but the safety group is definitely a standard feature on the 392

Congrats and welcome to the club. I’ve said it many times on this forum, you just have to make some effort in contacting dealers to find the right deal for you.

As for tracking, good luck. There is your dealer - which in your case may not be of help, there is Jeep Chat - who are not very helpful usually, and there is crytostickers.com - which is well behind in getting info. All that being said, be patient and the dealer is probably still your best bet in getting info.

So, I got my updated POC today, with the newly issued Vin, and I noticed something tonight that was listed under the options that I had selected. The option "YGN additional 4 gallons of gas" was something I didn't order, and was not on anything I had previously received.

So if that does in fact mean a 4 gallon larger gas tank, then I would guess that means it's standard on the 392.

I will try to confirm this with my dealer in AM though.

No, it is literally the four gallons of gas they put in your fuel tank at the factory.

Note that it may or may not have a charge attached; it used to be $12. (Seriously, FCA charged $3/gallon for the gas they put in your Wrangler at the factory.)

This is correct.... It is just 4 more gallons of gas. Got it on my '21 JLUR that I took delivery on in Nov. And good dealers will actually give you a full tank of gas when you pick up (like used to be standard years ago)!

I waited until the 2nd model year to order my JLURD because teething problems (if any) would have time to be addressed. On the 392, the same logic applies, plus after waiting 6-12 months, the pricing should stabilize to x% below invoice.

I think FCA will subscribe to the old Lays potato chip slogan: "Eat all you want, we'll make more". [why wouldn't they?]

New 2022 CAFE standards coming, EPA new administration move to green, low 392’s MPG figure and high price could keep the 392 a limited production model. Watch for gas guzzling tax added to future models years.

You are correct about being able to purchase below MSRP and waiting for all the problems corrected in future model years.

392’s low MPG figures and premium gas requirements probably will persuade a lot future buyers to the 4xe. It will be interesting to see the sale #s comparison of the 392 vs 4xe I follow a lot of the 4xe social media and its surprising all the 4xe crowd bashing the 392.

Not surprising because so many people are absolutely oblivious how the materials(minerals(natural resources) which they probably don't understand either) for their eclectic vehicles are mind and the impact that has. Our 392's will have a smaller carbon foot print than any of the 4xe, even if it were garaged and never drive. Because those batteries will continue to have a negative impact thousands of years from now. When they are still breaking down in future landfills filled with hazardous batteries that will continue to destroy the environment thousands of years after our carbon output has cycled through. Two types of people are pro electric vehicles; communists and idiots. Either way if they think they know better there is no reasoning with them.

It's probably because Jeep undercharges on the destination fee.

Being facetious of course. That is some serious nickeling and diming.

On my invoice I was charged for 4 gallons of gasoline AND 4 gallons of diesel. I should have brought a jerry can with me to haul my gas home.

I agree that it's always solid advice to wait for the second year to iron any bugs, which I usually try to do, but I decided to go for it now because:

A. We have a lease ending in April that I wanted to replace with something more permanent.

B. It will at least have a full warranty to give me a little piece of mind about any potential issues.

And C. There is lot of uncertainty in the air right now around auto manufacturers, and what will or wont be changing soon, and although it's unlikely, I'm at least a little concerned that the 392 might turn into a one year car, like the Hellcat powered Durango.

A V8 powered Wrangler has long been a dream of mine, so I decided to take my chances now, so at least I wouldn't spend the next 12 months worried about whether or not I'll be able to get one later.
