Yea I think demand is high and driver supply is low, just like every other thing in todays world.

I saw from the start shipping was going to be a crapshow so I just flew up and drove back.

Ordered Sarge Green Sahara through @Clutch.
8/3 - Ordered
8/11 - Vin#
9/2 - Build
9/3 - Sticker
9/8 - train to Louisiana
9/16 - @ port
9/29 - advised still at the port, been super patient in the process but I’m beginning to wonder if anything is going to change on terms, affiliate, and other fees on 10/1 :grimacing:

Are there any negatives to driving the newborn Rubi from Gupton to Los Angeles which is approx 2,000 miles and 20 hours of driving?

I love the idea of taking her on an immediate adventure but I’m concerned that it might be too much at once for the brand new engine.

I did that twice, not a single issue. 1) make sure you seat the fuses right at the dealership (even if they say they seated them); 2) for the first 60 miles, keep under 4K rpm, then let it rip.

If you have time, there’s a few badge of honor trails on the way back

Sounds like an awesome trip - just keep in mind it’ll be more than 2k miles and 20 hours if you want to make it interesting, since there are a lot of great spots to take the Jeep on the way that won’t be right on the highways.

Co-signing this. They were amazing every step of the way.

It’s beginning it’s journey to SoFlo! Pics provided by dealer. I’ll send more photos when it arrives to Miami! Thanks @Clutch

Going to be an awesome surprise for my sister.

Aside from the row of wranglers, look at how sadly empty that car lot looks. I just can’t believe how low inventory is everywhere.

White with Saddle looks sharp! :ok_hand:t4:

you also aren’t supposed to hold the engine at a steady RPM for extended periods of time, so you’d want to avoid cruise control.

I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it (mine’s is granite, my sister in law has always loved the white hard top - her parents got her one) but man it looks sweet.

it’s ridiculous… but I’m not upset about it. Had it not been for low inventory I never would’ve ordered my first Jeep and would definitely not have learned about ordering cars and the discounts that come with it. my fiance has a BMW x1 and she’s about to reach her mileage with 5-6 months left on the lease. It’s been nearly impossible to find something until I got in contact with @leasecompanion and now we’ll likely be ordering a beautiful Audi A5 Coupe for her by tomorrow.

To each their own but idk how anyone could NOT love the saddle brown on this thing. It’s so sweet.

I’ve had my new 4xe for 3 days and getting warning messages about seatbelts, airbag needs service and autopark being disabled message flashes. All happens after a few minutes driving and doesn’t matter if in the city or highway. I alerted the dealer and have an appointment for next Monday already. Anyone else have this happen?

Is this one of those fuse seating problems?

Could be, check your fuses. They need to be pressed in quite hard

Jeep has been processed and is scheduled for pickup in the next 2 days. +1 rec for Clutch’s south dealer.
$600 shipping from dealer to Miami, should be delivered by Monday (fingers crossed).
ordered 6/23, delivered 10/3 (I hope)…
