    I have a manual JTR. Was wondering the same thing about running 37s on it. Guess I will just use the gasser as a place holder until the diesels come out.

    @Wayoflife , can you point me to a resource where I can get more info about the process of setting the manual up with larger tires? If its too painful, I may just run the manual stock until I can get my hands on a diesel. Its winter in Ohio. Not a whole lot of off roading unless I want to play in mud. At least as far as I know.

    Youíd have to re-gear to at least 4.88s to get the performance back.

    Well I heard back from my sales manager this am. He was told by his Chrysler rep that once a vin has been issued the order cannot be changed. I told him that while I understand your policies I think you need to understand that this truck is NOT in production yet. We are talking about changing paperwork and codes...nothing more. That my quandary is I'm purchasing a 50+K vehicle that isn't exactly what I wanted. My last thing to him was I suggest he go back to his rep and press harder because if they think a $500.00 deposit is going to tie me to a 50+K vehicle...they are wrong. And he will end up with it on his lot. I told him that I will be happy to talk to the rep myself.
    His last words were that he will reach back out to the rep and let me know what he finds out.

    My feeling is that they will likely not get anything changed. I guess regearing will be in future...sooner rather than later. I know I'll love the manual, and I've never drove the auto, but hearing what everyone has had to say it sounds like I would be doing myself a huge injustice. I find though that I feel tremendously guilty at the thought of walking away from an order I asked them to put in for me.

    Yeah, no. Theyíll sell it. Donít feel bad in the least. Being a manual in 2020 with most the population unable to drive one it might sit long enough to get a good discount on it too.

    Bullshit. You are the customer. Keep going up the chain of command. Obviously asking nicely isnít working. Time to start being a prick. Itís your money.

    Between their profit plus hold back on a new vehicle, Iíd have no remorse leaving them with the truck if they donít change the order. They donít know or care enough to fix this for you.

    People walk away from orders all the time when they come in. I used to see it a lot at the dealer. Could be financing, changed their mind, had medical issues, change of heart, who knows...

    When I ordered my JT, the sales team told me very clearly that I had 24 hours to make changes and that's it. Between the afternoon I ordered it and the following morning, I received three reminders from them that any changes had to be done then and after that I could not make any changes. They seemed really diligent about making me aware of that.

    Still waiting to hear back from the sales manager. I spoke to another dealership as I was looking for some pricing leverage. Told them my situation and without batting an eye she said "I would just order you another truck".
    I was like "Really". She said absolutely. I rather order you a new truck and keep your business than have you back out of the order and go somewhere else. She also told me not to feel guilt about it. It happens a lot more frequently than you would think.

    So at this time I figure I'll call the sales manger before days end and see what the outcome is. If it isn't in my favor then I'll tell him I guess we order another truck and go that route. Will work to my benefit because Jeep has lifted the safety group requirement that was on when I ordered my JT.

    Glad to hear you went to see another dealership. The whole thing with your current one sounds really stupid. If they really want your business, they'll work for you.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
