    How many ordered their Jeep?

    I was wondering how many people ordered the Jeep they wanted or if you just found one you liked on the dealership lot?

    We have three Jeeps:

    One was searched out and drove 2 hours for.
    My wifes was one of three that were all the same, we picked one.
    The thrid was a spefic build to order so we could get the right gear ratio and everything we wanted, and did not want.

    Have not ordered a jeep but I am looking at ordering a set of the new headlights. They look really nice.

    I was just a convertible vehicle shopper. I picked more toward the luxury end (not that a jeep has much to offer there compared to other SUVs) and because it looked good. The salesman never even muttered the word Rubicon to me. Heck, I could have at least got the MW3 edition with the AEV bumpers!

    Oh well, next time.

    I'm really shocked how many are ordering them with the new body style coming. Not to mention a diesel option. Just seems like a waste for the most part.

    SSinGA....depending on what your wanting to do you will be just fine with a sport. I will tell you, the leather option is the best thing you can do. Makes cleaning mud out so much easier.

    I remember when the JK came out, people bought TJ's because they were the last real Jeep built. Now the JK is accepted as a good vehicle, people are going to buy the last model year to avoid issues in the first few new model years.

    LOL. I ordered mine almost 5 years ago. If I knew I'd be off roading as much as I have been I prob would have ordered the Rubicon instead of a loaded Sahara.

    FWIW...I ordered w/o leather because I knew I wanted seat covers for weather protection. Plus AL sun and black leather + bare legs = lost skin.

    I was a bit confused on the post. I had thought you had yours for a while. All well. I got a sport with my first one, and was glad I traded it for the rubicon. It fits my needs very well at the moment.

    I will be honest. I have never been burnt by it. It's warm, but not hot like the old vinyl seats.

    Not to go too far off topic but I've found the same with having leather seats (not in my Jeep) and think people often think of 70's vinyl when thinking hot leather, I've just never found them to be too hot in the summer.

    Anyhow, back to your regularly scheduled new Jeep talk.......
