    Just got the call from Neil! I probably won’t be able to make the trip to Conroe until Friday but they finally arrived!

    Yes, the turbo 4 is one of things I most excited about but it looks like it is causing a big delay as the first group of motos had a problem and now FCA is scrambling for a fix and restart to the production of the turbo Wranglers

    Yeah, there is concern that a problem with that engine option being responsible for the fire that destroyed a few JLs waiting to be shipped. I believe that there have been two fires so far. Whether it is the engine itself or that battery with the electric motor gimmick or just the software that controls it, we don't know and it is unlikely that FCA will ever make it public what the real problem was if they do fix it.

    From a fuel economy standard, I just don't see it making sense though. From what I've heard, you're only getting 2 mpg better fuel economy with the new engine, so let's say 8-10% better gas mileage. Best price for 91+ octane fuel locally is $2.88 per gallon and the best price for 87 octane is $2.43. So, for fuel that is 18.5% more expensive, I would only get 8-10% better fuel economy. Nawh, doesn't make sense to me. And when you combine that with having to pay more for that engine, it makes even less sense.

    Configuring a JL Sport like I want it ends up with an MSRP of $31,925. If I did the same configuration on it with the new engine, I would end up at $34,925. So, $3K extra due to being forced to pay for an automatic transmission that I most definitely don't want plus the additional cost of the new engine.

    Let's assume that you get 20 mpg with the normal engine and 22 mpg with the new engine -- a 10% increase in fuel economy. Let's also assume the fuel prices that I listed above and 15,000 miles each year of driving.

    With the normal engine, you are using 750 gallons per year for a cost of $1822.50.
    With the new engine, you are using 681.81 gallons per year for a cost of $1963.67.
    But, let's assume that you could run the new engine on 87 octane and it still got the same fuel economy.
    That would means that you would still be using 681.81 gallons, but the cost was $1656.82, a saving of $165.68 per year.
    So, after a bit over 6 years (around 90,535 miles), you would have finally broken even.

    I seriously doubt that it will get the same fuel economy with 87 octane that it gets with 91+ octane since if it did, the manufacturer would most likely specify it as a 87 octane engine.

    This isn't likely to change the mine of any of the electric fan-boys out there, but it might just give those who are doing research before deciding upon an engine a bit more information so that they don't automatically assume that they will save money with this new engine. If you want to save money, get yourself a manual transmission and do some research on the "hypermiling" techniques that are used by those folks. Some of those guys get a bit too aggressive at it in my opinion, but putting a car in neutral and turning off the engine can still be relatively safe in certain situations when you have a long downhill run with minimal curves in the road.

    Well, I know it's been unloaded from the railcar! My Dealer texted me today and said that it should be getting on a truck and being shipped soon. The tracking for it on Jeepgarage just says the following: Railcar Unloaded 07/10/18 01:16:00 PM PEARLAND, TX VDC :movember:

    I have a feeling I'll get a text or call tomorrow. I'll let yall know! :dance:

    [QUOTE="TaiMc, post: 285590,

    I am hoping I get a call tomorrow, I leave town Sunday and was hoping to pick it up before I leave. My new tires came in this week and I am getting them put on the rims Friday. All I need is the Jeep.

    I ordered from Neil as well. A couple days ago Jeep chat told me the Wrangler was in Pearland. Neil said that wasn't the case, but we should get it next week. This morning Jeep chat said that they didn't have any information about where it is at. If it comes in anytime in the next couple weeks we will be impressed. We ordered on 6/12.

    Receiving conflicting information as to where my JLUR is. In the span of an hour, I received the following information: Jeep Chat informed me it's awaiting shipment in Toledo. Dealership says ETA is unknown. JeepGarage says it was delivered to the dealership. Whomp whomp...

    Too funny, that's where my JL ended up - found a shipping tag in mine that said Mira Loma, CA. That place looks enormous. It took over two weeks from arriving there to make its way to LA.

    @wbee @angrylizards @BlairF @ZombieNipples @neil99

    Naww...this week is the week, as in TODAY (Friday, 13th). Here's the latest on my tracking information:

    Truck Pick-Up / Yard Exit 07/12/18 08:48:00 PM PEARLAND, TX (on truck to dealer) thumbsup.gif
    Dealer Delivered 07/12/18 09:19:00 PM

    Apparently mine and @BlairF were delivered to River Oaks yesterday at 9pm. So yall should definitely contact your dealers and ask if your Jeep has arrived, but if you had a previous notification that your Jeep was in Pearland VDC, then your Jeep was with mine; and it's probable that your Jeeps were delivered to the dealer as well! Booiii hope to see some nice Mojitoooo pics laterrrr today!

    I'm gonna upload my tracking/transit schedule post! *HUGSSS*! :rock: :giggle:
