I’m at 4 weeks today on my gobi order and was told “there is no timeline” on my build and I’m still patiently waiting in the scheduling phase….
just a question… but didn’t they just make the gobi become available this past couple of days? How did you order Gobi 4 weeks ago?

Gobi was announced as a late availability color in the ordering guides long before it became available. You could have ordered it in January if you wanted to, just wouldn't know when it was gonna show.

That being said I believe they announced they started scheduling Gobi orders on March 4th

Dang! Never was given that option or else I would’ve done it then. Anyways, all is well now! Hopefully our builds get started sooner than later..,

I saw on here that it was available first week of March. Ordered the next day. Then they announced it. Then they finally got around to making it available online a couple days ago.

Hello EVERYONE! New to the site due to me ordering a new Diesel Overland… but I do have a question, I ordered mine in the Granite color as I had to settle because I’ve been waiting a year and a half for the Gobi color to come back. Well it didn’t at all in 2021 and then early this year I was almost forced to order one because of my Tundra not doing so well. Anyways….

Question…If my Gladiator is all ready on its way to the dealership… can I still cancel my order and order a new one in the Gobi color? Or will they make me buy the other one?
I did this exact thing. I was going to pick up my Sting Grey the week the Gobi was announced. Canceled my order and was able to submit a new order (thankfully as I was able to save $7k by going through the online sales rep vs the sales rep at the physical dealership). Only bad thing is it looks like it's going to take twice as long for the build (it's been a month and the status is still "scheduled to be built").

Even though it wasn't available online, it was available in the dealership system. So you could submit your order for Gobi through working with a jeep dealer.

So, as I recall the February Order Guide was the first appearance of Late Availability Gobi. I recall asking two separate dealers about the color maybe sometime around late February and I was told multiple times that it had not “dropped” yet. Are you suggesting that a dealer could have locked an order in before they could have seen Gobi as a color option?

At this point I’m mainly interested in how the system works going forward. That’s because I’ve been pining for Mojito, and I just might order one of those if it comes on.

thanks.

How’d you save 7k!?!?
I wish I could’ve done that. My build is almost 70 after dealer fee and taxes!

First let me preface that I just said yes to everything with my first order and it looks like the sales rep jacked up the price to where it was going to be $73k when all was said and done.

Then I read on here that instead of the sales rep I should have worked with the online rep who could get me 2% below invoice (1 % off with the Tread Lightly membership included). Thankfully Gobi came out and gave me the reason to swap without the dealership denying me (the deposit I paid was just swapped to the new order). Final cost to me was $66k (MSRP roughly $71.5k).

Another question to all….
Upon building the Gladiator Diesel in Gobi… I see that the TracLok anti spin diff was included in the package. Then when my dealer went through the process… they said that it doesn’t include it… any ideas why online is conflic

If I hadn’t been able to get my Gator, Gobi would’ve been my close second choice with Sarge following behind. Get exactly what you want because you’ll always be wishing you had if you didn’t.
