I have been trying to order a 2024 392 in Pennsylvania from my regular dealer. A couple of weeks ago, when I originally tried to place the order, they said they could not. I posted here and was told that the electric top is on restriction and may come off in the future. It made sense. I checked again recently, and I was told the dealer could not select the 392 package as it was greyed out. I was told it was the MFG who limits allocations to CARB states, and they are looking into the matter. Does anyone have any insight on this?

Dealers in CARB states can't order ICE-only Jeeps for lot inventory, but should be able to take direct orders for customers. Maybe they changed that.

NY here - also a carb state.
My dealer doesn’t get ICE vehicles for lot inventory but will gladly order one for you. I’ve done it three times now.
Sounds like your dealer is either confused, doesn’t care or is trying to get you to settle for something on his lot.

This, and afaik nothing's changed. Also, this is solely a voluntary Jeep/Stellantis policy and nothing currently enacted under state law at the moment. PA is currently CARB-compliant under previous standards, but any future changes are not automatically adopted and requires review and approval by state lawmakers.

My county still doesn't even require emissions testing for state inspection like most of the other counties, so I'd be willing to bet that either your dealer is full of shit or Jeep/Stellantis is again making further unneeded restrictions beyond what dealer's can and cannot stock on their lots (which initially was supposed to have no impact on what a customer could factory-order).

If they don't want your business, just buy from one of the many high-volume dealers in VA/MD and get a better price to boot.

Allocations for the “final edition” announced based on prior sales numbers. A shady dealer used the “allocation” excuse in 21 to not deliver my ordered 392 at MSRP when I wouldn’t agree to a later $5K over. The last 392 the local could get they slapped $20K over on and got it according to the service writer who also says the long line of 4xe’s is not selling better than when they inventoried 2 or 3 and the rest were ICE in all trims. In related news Wrangler sales are down….. if truly based on allocation some may need to travel .

Get a quote from Koons; I think they are $9,000 under MSRPs on 392 orders right now.
Look for their contact info in this forum.

I ordered and took delivery from Koons. I’m out of state and it was a good experience for me, worth the drive for the savings and hassle free buying experience.

Thanks for all the info. I bought my 21 392 from them, and they were always fair. I don't think they are trying to screw me over, but confused. I can see that. I was just not sure if it was something the MFG was doing since everyone is hybrid/electric happy and these are not that.

Lots of false info here.

Since January of 2024 CARB State dealers CAN NOT order 392s but they can order non hybrid jeeps. If you want to buy one in a carb state since Jan you need to get one from an in stock unit.

I tried ordering one from my local guy here in NY who I used for everything and they were unable to. I spoke to a contact I have a Jeep and they confirmed that the dealers are correct. I ended up ordering from Koons and expect it to arrive in May/June.

Also i was told from the same source that 392 ordering in general will be closed by end of this month, I am assuming the final edition will remain open for a bit....
