Help With Dealer Inventory Search JL 2 Door

Would someone who works at a dealership or someone who has access to all inventory be able to do me a huge favor and do a quick search to see if there’s a Jeep exactly like I want within 500 miles of 84129 (Utah)? Must have all items listed.

Wrangler Sport
Customer Preferred Package 24S (Sport S)
Cold Weather Group
Convenience Group
Technology Group
3.6L V6 24V VVT Engine Upg I w/ESS 8-SPD AUTO 850RE TRANS
Granite Crystal Met. Clear Coat Monotone Paint
Cloth Low-Back Bucket Seats Black
Black 3-Piece Hard Top

Additional items possibly ok, as long as MSRP is below 40K


Anyone’s help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank You!

When I would want to spec a vehicle I would ask my dealer to search - Have you asked the local dealers to search?

Sometimes you just have to order....

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.

Have tried online. It only goes out to 150 miles. I am looking out to 500 and possibly more.

Local dealers are not going to be interested in doing a swap seeing it would be an EP purchase.

Thanks

OP, I wouldn't assume that without asking.

The answer to the unasked question is always no.

But keep in mind that I believe dealers still make something on EP and AP sales.

Certainly my dealer was more than happy to take my build order for a JKU under the AP program.

I'm assuming that's the Employee Purchase (advantage program).

OK Something learned. EP and AP, never to old.
So how would the dealer KNOW that when searching and shopping that would be discussed later when purchasing I would think.... IDK

True you could handle it that way. I would just be up front. I still think a decent sales guy would be willing to search anyway. It's not like it takes an hour, should be minutes.
