Wow, $31k for that one is good. Automatic and hardtop which are both extra costs options compared to the softtop, manual I am looking at.

They make good deals with no surprise add ons. I got my Rubicon there last year for $5926 off the sticker.

Op should spend some time in the ordering and pricing section before deciding if they are getting a good deal ( https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/forums/ordering-and-pricing-discussions.7/ ). There is an excel spreadsheet that will help you calculate the invoice price for all possible specs. I can't find the thread i downloaded from so i uploaded here. Wish I could give credit to the creator. 1% below invoice is generally considered a 'good' deal, but there are some who brag about getting their Jeep for 6%+ below invoice.

Deals are regional. 6%-under MSRP is not a great deal. 6%-under invoice is a pretty good deal. You definitely can do much better then 1%-under invoice almost anywhere in the country with very little effort. Just join Tread Lightly or any other affiliate.

I purchased my 2 door JL Sport S for $5500 off of sticker from dealer inventory.

2 door, V6, Auto, Hard Top, Technology Package, Sport S Package

There website currently shows $5500 off all 2019's and $6500 off all 2018 JL's. I know we are in California, but if they can offer it, so can others.

Here is there website: www.elkgrovejeep.com

So, to me $31000 is not that great of a deal.

I mistakenly typed 6% below MSRP. Thank you for correcting me it could have cost someone.

I paid 11.67% under sticker. I’m happy with the deal I made, and very happy with my Jeep.
The salesman offered to show me the invoice. I said I didn’t much care what he paid for it.
I only cared what I was gonna pay for it.

Someone asked me this on the last trail ride we went on.
I answered; "like the guy who fell off a 10 story building in my home town, every window he passed on the way down he looked in and said "so far so good "" .

Thanks for that excel spreadsheet. Yeah the local dealer is right at $31k for the Sport 2 door manual I want. May not be such a good deal after all....

You guys are fortunate to be able to shop around. I had to special order mine to get the features I want so I was kinda stuck working with one dealership.

I thought 4 door Sahara's were the worst off road not the 2 door sport models

Actually, the 4 door Sport would be the "worst" JL Wrangler. At the end of the day it still has 4WD with low range, solid axles, and good articulation.
