2014 Laredo E 4X4 w/ Off-road adventure 1

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?

-Off-road adventure 1:
Front Suspension Skid Plate
Fuel Tank Skid Plate Shield
*Full Size Spare Tire Steel Spare Wheel
*Hill Descent Control
*P245/70R17 OWL On/Off-Road Tires
*Quadra-Trac II® 4WD System
*Selec-Terrain™ System
Skid Plate Group
Tow Hooks
"Trail Rated" Badge
Transfer Case Skid Plate Shield
Underbody Skid Plate

Usually dealerships give better incentives on vehicles they already own and are on the lot, but some places will order you one and still give you a decent discount.

For the few thousand difference, I suggest ordering the exact vehicle you want. You will never be happy if you buy something you "settled" on.

Depends

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

If you ever make your way south, you can try Carl Burger's Dodge Chrysler Jeep World in La Mesa. I know they have one a few weeks ago almost pick that one up but got a Limited instead.

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!

As expensive as any new vehicle is, I always order mine to get exactly what I want.

I got a quote from a dealer for 32,722 special ordered. Does that sons about right ? I've seen some as low as 28,750 but that's way out of state and few and far between.

I had to order mine. I only wanted a Laredo X with offroad group & tow package. Dealer asked for $100 deposit, and the price paid was around invoice. Delivery was about 5-6 weeks.

And you get 1% under invoice even with special orders. Tell the sales dude you are a Tread Lightly member and join.
