I got a 06 unlimited auto soft top with the upgraded radio for $22000 ttl out the door so they have a lot of wiggle room.

Holy crap, how did you pull that off?

On edit, that was not a rubicon was it?

I have it from a good source that the 4 door will be available for order July 5th with a August 28th production. The 2 door will be available for order July 24th with production of July 31st

Why would they start 4-door orders almost 8 weeks before production and 2-door orders only 1 week before production?

I just heard the other day from some engineers at DCX that are going to be droping prices for the 06MY TJ's because once the JK hits shelves they feel the JKwill overshadow th TJ and they will be sitting on the lots to long...

Can you say "Employee Pricing Plus"
I hope that the little birdie was correct
If so, look for it in a dealership near you...soon.

Is employee pricing about the same as dealer invoice?

I was pricing some Rubi's today and it seemed pretty close from what the dealer was giving me.

Wow 5% is good. That doesn't match these printouts the dealer gave me. One is almost matching invoice on an X anniversary, and for a Rubicon it says invoice is 26731 and the EP price is 25,596. That's 4%. Hmmmm..

It doesn't seem consistent and that's why I was asking. Could these be fudged? This printout has stuff like Customer one Owner Loyalty Mailing. What the heck is that? It shows as $25 on the invoice pricing. Also Detroit Outer L25 $210 and Detroit Outstate DAA $125

Plus the Destination charge of $660. Anyone know about all these extra prices?

Because they want to start the competition with all the other
"soccer mom" SUV's as soon as possible.

With this Employee Pricing, I too am on the fence. Wait for the 07 Sahara, or jump on a heavily discounted 06 Rubicon? I really like to look of the 07, but is the quality control going to be up to speed on the early orders. I am just recovering from a recent lemonized 05 magnum, I want to make sure that I don't have to ever lemon another DC vehicle. any suggestions??

I owned an early 97 build wrangler. It was right up to snuff with my 98 and other 2000 wranglers. They did change a few minor things in 98, and I would expect they would do the same with the 07. One of the 97-98 changed was the outside defroster vents. dunno why?
