Got mine!
I've been lurking here for quite some time. Waiting to purchase until my divorce was finalized. We signed yesterday :)

I've been wanting the basic 4-door Rubicon... soft top with the power group. I called literally 50 dealerships and found four that fit the bill within 300 miles.

I had all four salesman take my credit card, only to hear back from them that the vehicles were already sold. I readjusted my goal to a fully loaded sahara with manual transmission. I love manual, it gives a broader range of the driving experience for me, and if I was going to lower my expectations then I wanted to compensate with the manual.

Yesterday, in Tomball, Texas, I found a fully loaded, dual-top, myGig, 18" wheels etc. in the color I wanted... with a manual!

Today my brother and I and my two boys went to pick it up. In the end this turns out to be the perfect vehicle for me. I doubt that I will ever be in the position where I need the additional capabilities of the Rubicon. I have already spent more time with the MyGig than I likely ever would have had the sway bar disconnected.

So tonight, a silver Sahara sits in front of my house. It took a lot of time on the phone to find it, but I can't tell you how happy I am with the purchase!

Thanks for all the good advice on this board, folks... I'll see you around :)

I'm chewing my nails wondering if my Rubi Order is going to make it or get cut... Date order was 4/16.

I'm looking all over as well just in case, since I already sold my old Jeep, and i'm now on 2 wheels till it arrives! AZ is getting hot too!

I printed out a list of the 100 closest dealers from the Jeep website and just started dialing. By the time I got to 50 or so I had maybe four salesmen working hard for me to also try and find some. I did realize that even the dealer inventory search function lags several days sometimes, so maybe just investing an afternoon and dialing for dollars could locate your vehicle.

Good luck!!
