Default Jeep Wrangler JL price - What did you pay?

For those who have their Jeep Wrangler JL, what price did you pay for yours? I'm heading to the dealer soon and want to know a bit of what to expect beforehand.

Expect to be disappointed. Very little dealer markup in the JL like the JK with about a $3000 increase over the JK which was already getting too high for what you get. If you finance, interest rates are up as well to the 3-5% range if you have good credit. The JL is nice but I don't see it being worth the money when you can get a nicer slightly used vehicle for about half the money if you are willing to take the time to look.

Exactly why I bought a new JK in March of this year after the JL came out. My JK was $10K cheaper than a comparable JL.

Does the TreadLightly affiliate program still work? Thats what I did when I bought my JK, saved thousands. But there was a waiting period I think to get the discount.

Just looked, seems it's still an option

Must be a member for 30 days before getting the discount of 1% UNDER factory invoice. Best car buying experience I ever had.

Wow save $450 on a $45k vehicle. Dave Smith motors does better then that. They do invoice plus the holdback money and any rebates/incentives. Even with all that it was about $3000 under sticker plus tax and docs. I may be wrong but these things dont seem to be selling here. All the dealer lots are loaded with them around here. I think Fiat may have gotton a bit too greedy on this model.

Starting to see more of them around the DFW metroplex, but not near as prolific as how the JK flooded the market. I know several that would like one, and the comment is always the same...."they cost so much!"
