Does anyone know how or where to get the paper owner's manual for my 2018 JLUR?
Sounds strange that the dealer tells me the PDF is all that is available, I ordered it from factory, they should give me a book.....:swear:

I just want one to keep it the Jeep like any other vehicle I've ever purchased so I can reference it when required. Even the bag that holds the quick guide appears to have enough space to hold the typical 600+ page little book.... :headbang:

It should have been in your glove box in this case. The tire warranties are in there along with some other paperwork (your rights, etc). I don't believe your dealer. What are you going to do when in the boonies with no cel phone coverage, a dead battery, etc and you need to know the jack points to change a tire?

@Jeeporama …. Go to Jeep Cares... they'll send you one... all 600+ pages of it. It fits in the tiny glove box.

The paper manual does not come with the JL.

You can call Jeep Customer Assistance Center at 866-362-2146. Request a paper manual.

They will oblige(No charge) but only if you have already taken delivery of your JL. If your JL is on order and you have not taken delivery, then they will tell you to call back after delivery.

Just realized you are a Canadian. Not sure if your way of getting the manual will be different then for those in the USA.

The paper manual came with our 2019 JL S. I was finally able to find the PDF yesterday-put it on my phone. Anywho. Who remembers getting a VHS tape with directions on how to operate the soft top? Got one in an '03 TJ. It was on a CD for the '06 we got.

@DCELL

You actually got the 600+ page User's Manual or the smaller guide that comes with the JL? You might want to look again...

They usually come with what is called a users guide. You contact Jeep for the actual owners manual. Back in the spring they had a habit of sending out 2018 jk manuals first, even though they wanted your vin, then you’d have to contact them again to finally get the correct manual. Hopefully that problem has corrected itself by now.
Anyway, I ended up with the complete 2018 set, both jk and JL. According to the forum back then, this happened to several of us.

You're right. I got the 116 or so page "essential information" guide. I did not bother to look at it-print is to small. I like the full "Owner's Manual" in PDF. That is finally available on the JEEP.COM site...couldn't find it until yesterday.

I just. took a look. Here's what all came crammed in the pouch: Owners manual (356 pages), Quick Reference Guide, Sirius XM brochures/channel list, Some part # card (maybe for the owners manual?), U-Connect info card, Lemon Law info, CA info, an interim update for the 2L (I have a V6), Shipping order (dealer must have put that in there), Roadside assistance via FCA, and change of ownership card. No tire warranties as I was thinking. I noticed my owners manual is different from the above pic. Maybe a revision?

No manual came with mine either. I have the PDF version bookmarked on my phone and ipad. Will have to call jeep to order one, would be nice to have if I am stuck somewhere without a signal.
