Hello jeepers. 1st time posting but long time lurker.
First a little background.
I had a 12' JKU Sahara but lost my job and couldn't afford it any longer. I always wanted a Rubi, and just love the new JL's, so I have been checking around with a couple dealers that you all have had good experiences with.
Thanks by the way for all the input. Very helpful.
Anyways, I had 1 dealer tell me that the Tread Lightly Discount was no longer available as of February, and that he contacted FCA to verify. Does anyone know if this is true?

Thanks, that is what I figured.

I just don't understand what the advantage would be to telling me it no longer is available, unless they have extra codes and could recoup some of their money without giving me an extra discount.

Any decent dealer should be able to match the tread lightly price. Most should do better than that. Shouldn't even need the program.

Yeah he was at 5% under invoice. I was trying to get lower with TL. It's ok, another dealer has already offered 6% under with tread , then another 1% if I finance with them, and a lower doc fee. They are just further away

I should say, I assumed they wouldn't add the TL discount on top. That's a solid deal you found though.

Yeah, I just need to wait til Saturday when he's back at the dealership to get all specifics. Hopefully I will be ordering a sting grey rubi .
It is Travis from Tri city in Eden, NC.
Found him in the dealer preferred list. That has been very helpful, and I thank everyone who helped to put it together.

So if your handle is "Jeep Smash", does that mean your Jeep is Hulk Green?
