Picked ours up almost 2 weeks ago and it has rained almost everyday since but have been enjoying it every time we get it out. So far no problems but only have just over 200 miles on it.

Set up the garage with hangers for the doors and built a hoist for the top, unfortunately for now it is stuck with top and doors on.

What hoist did you go with? I’m looking at the Lange Crank hoist.

It’s here and about time. This forum is correct. You forget about the wait when it’s here. Also, there was a guy waiting outside by my ob from some ad agency, taking pictures of the new JL’s. He was there when I was leaving and stopped me to ask if he could take some outside photos of my Jeep. He hadn’t seen the ocean blue on them yet. I let him. He will be sending me them later. FYI: these pictures are from my phone. Ordered 3/26

Got the call yesterday that ours left on a train from the plant and is now in Michigan awaiting leg #2 of the trip. Dealer said maybe late next week.

Funny thing is that I received an email from Jeep thanking me for my recent order, provided the VON, and told me to be on the lookout for updates as it’s being built - got this Friday. Just a tad behind in the process.

I got the same email from Jeep the night before I found out my Jeep was in Winston-Salem.

How ??? I’d check your vin and von you were originally given. There is no way that was built unless someone else canceled or they fixed and I status Jeep. Sounds like they got one from another dealer.
Why not? I went D1 4/5, KZ 4/17, and my Jeep was in Winston-Salem on 4/26.

Just ordered my ACE Rock sliders for my OB JLUR from CariD.com
I got 5% off and free shipping with the same estimated time for shipping as ACE. Saved us about $80 between the discount and the free shipping. I did not have a code, but I live chatted on their website. The representative, Bryan, sent me the link with the discount. Just thought I would share if anyone else is kicking around that product.

A little late to posting pics but got the Jeep in last week. All blue Rubicon with all the options (except AUX package which I’m regretting tbh). My first mod was swapping out the stock antenna with a black stubby I had on my old JK. Once I did that the floodgates opened — I have the Mopar 2 inch lift coming in this week. Going to be putting American Racing AX202 wheels (17x9 w/ 4.5 BS or -12 Offset) in cast iron black with BFG KO2 37x12.5 tires. Also doing Mopar spare tire carrier, tailgate reinforcement, and 3rd brake light relocation. Lastly bought Mopar winch/grill guard & have the performance rock guards on my wishlist. Super pumped! Will post pictures post mods but here are some I snapped in the meantime.

So after 12 weeks, I gave up. I ordered a fully loaded OB Sahara with matching hardtop. Had a frustrated conversation with my dealer. Upon hearing me vent, Instead of saying sorry it’s taking so long, let me see what I can do or find out he told me quote “I don’t need to sell you a vehicle, we do fine”. So I cancelled my order. I am glad he does not need my sale.

So I went to another dealership where they had a fully loaded Rubi, great purchasing experience. Although I sacrificed the matching hardtop, SO glad to have a Rubicon instead of the Sahara.

First time Jeep owner and couldn’t be happier. Already installed a cargo mat (freaked me out cutting holes in the back upholstery of my new Blubicon). Took the top and doors off and had a blast today.

Oh yeah, and mr bad attitude dealer, bought my son a used charger at the same time. You blew it bro.

Amazing how things work out. Sorry for the photo dump...super stoked had to share.

Love your Rubicon! The cargo mat install looks great! I’m sure your son was thrilled to get a Charger with your Rubicon. I would definitely let FCA know about your experience with the first dealer. As I understand it, dealer’s with bad surveys and complaints lose their preferred dealer status which is not a good thing from them. Enjoy! May you both have many happy, safe miles in your new rides!!!
