Then realized they have a stupid mark up.
These things are sooo nice. I had to pry my wife away. She was ready to drive it home. Not sure I can wait for the diesel now that we checked out a JL in person.

Anyway. Like always the few pictures I took are shitty. lol

Holy hell!! :shock:

I think you did the right thing by NOT buying the JL but I totally hear where you're coming from. They really are that nice :yup:

If you can, wait for the ďnewĒ to wear off. They look nice, but not that nice to justify $16k markup...

Silly mark up right?
Yea there is no way I was going to buy anything with a markup. When the time comes. Pretty sure I will order it exactly how I want and play the waiting game.

Some key features that I really liked.
Rear view camera.
Door stops!!
Waaay more comfortable passenger seats.
Rear window wiper out of the way.
Headlights.
Overall fit and finish is leaps and bounds ahead of the JK. Iíd say itís equivalent to a Grand Cherokee in creature comforts.


Canít wait to buy one! Lol

Damn that is crazy. I actually just passed a JLUR today on the road about an hour ago. They are nice looking. I even like the new front fenders with the DRL's. That was the dead give away what was driving towards me...haha. When I purchased mine new in 2012 I almost bought a black JKUR 6 speed from new Mexico because at the time they had put the ordering on hold. There were few equipped how I wanted. After I was told they'd be sending a driver and my new Jeep would have almost 1k miles on it I came to my senses. I had been waiting this long no need to be in a hurry. Ordering opened up a few weeks later and I took delivery 3 months later of the jeep I wanted exactly equipped. A new JL similarly equipped would cost me 10k+ over what I paid for mine 6 years ago. It's crazy. In 5 years when our Durango is paid off maybe I'll have one..haha

16 grand markup?? Youíre shitting me right? Is it their demo that they just donít want to sell so they can use it as a selling tool? Iíd be going to a different dealer after seeing that shit.

I checked out my first JL in person today. It was a Sahara and it was 45k with no markup.
Man there is no way I would pay a 16k mark up. If you are serious just look around, just like with the new Raptors you can find a dealer that will sell it to you with no mark up.

Thats outrageous, theres a fully loaded Rubicon JLU for 51000 over this way, I thought that was high.

Rediculous. In a few months or a year when more are available, I bet they level out a little.

So the mark up is solely based on "high demand?" WTF. My dealership better not try to pull that on me.

At $51K it was not fully loaded. I can guarantee you that.

Wow, thatís silly. Definitely wait. Sounds like a custom order is the way to go. I would have a hard time buying from that dealership after saying that. There are a ton of other options available.

$16 markup? You can just order one and save $16k. Not like they are limited edition or anything. Imagine the retard that buys that thing.

I looked at my local dealer a week ago and they had 6 on the lot, a mix of Saharas and Sports, salesman said the 2 Rubis they had already sold, it was like Christmas the amount of people looking though but no extra markups.

Holy hell. $16k no way. but I am sure it will sell to someone that has to have it to get to the mall.

My truck had a $3000 markup over sticker if I bought it off the lot, pretty much every where around Dallas in 2000. I ordered it, and paid $430 over invoice at one of the dealers elling them over priced. And I only waited 4 weeks.

Nice to see that not all dealers are playing that game. The JL is a hot commodity. Still haven't seen one myself. Might have to check around, but then I will really want one.

HighwayTrout
01-30-2018, 04:17 AM
I guess I should mention. They had well over 20 JKís on the lot....

A discounted JKís price looks a hell of a lot better than spending 16k extra on a JL. Just their way of moving the old stock.

I showed that sticker to the sales guy we buy our vehicles from and he said, "Crap! I just sold a new Rubicon yesterday. I should have marked it up 5 grand and he would have thought he was getting a deal! Hehe" FYI, the dealer we use DOESN'T mark up the vehicles.

Jesus Christ!! Sounds like that dealership was trying to do what Ford did when the GT350R first hit. 20k markup in those things. All the dealerships around here donít play the markup game, at least that Iíve seen. And working in the industry, Iíve never seen it around here either

some people have to buy the 1st one of new things and they'll pay the "high demand" markup like it's so rare and limited lol

I was given the "it's in high demand and selling fast...don't know when we'll get more" sales pitch, told the sales guy that's great for business they're selling so fast and to look over there (at my Jeep) I'm in no rush. :beer:

I plan to buy one but I'll wait until the "high demand" fever dies down.

You're better off ordering one to get a decent deal. My JLR is on the way for only $40g.
