I built a 2014 Laredo E 4X4 w/ Off-road adventure 1 on jeep's website, but it seems that combo is hard to find at dealerships.. I decided I don't need navigation (have it now and don't use it) can deal without leather and a moon roof.. question is, If I can't find this configuration @ a dealership is my only choice to have it custom built . Does it cost more than just buying a pre-configured one?

On the dealer and the time of the month. I got the same dealer on a special order that I would have gotten on a vehicle on the lot. Chances are slim you are going to find what you want on the dealer lot. Back in 2012 I was looking for a similar group of options and had to special order
Does it cost more than just buying a pre-configured one?
Often it costs less to special order because the dealer won't have show room or carrying costs. If you take advantage of a supplier or friend/family pricing it will cost the same. I usually have to special order as dealers rarely stock the options in the color we want. Sometimes we get lucky.

I ordered one after the dealer agreed to sell it to me for the 'truecar.com' price that is only supposed to apply to 'vehicles in stock'.
I told the salesman he could sell me a car right then for the truecar price, or I would keep looking for what I wanted and maybe one of the two other dealers truecar referred me to would have it in stock first.
I took delivery of my new Limited model last Saturday after a one month wait!
