Hmmm....just when you thought you'd seen it all. Kind of misleading IMO. Some people might think its some "package" available on a wrangler.

That's really dumb. Why would they do that?

SCAM ALERT!

TIP: Walk in the door, tell salesman I am here to buy a __________________ I will pay Invoice minus any incentives that apply that I am eligible for on a clean sale, no lifetime window tint, chrome muffler bearings, wax jobs or %^&* jobs or other BS, the answer is either YES or NO!

yea, i wasn't there to buy. Just test drive. Salesman was really nice. I think he was just excited to ride in it as i was to drive it! didn't even take a copy of my license. I told him on the test drive what i was going to order and what i was going to pay. He said this one would sell for MSRP. I'm sure it will. I gave him a print out of what i want and told him to give me a call if he could do the deal.

I would have had some fun first. For instance I would have asked to quote on a custom order, Order any gladiator the way you want and then tell them to add the "Gladiator Package" on the order screen. See what they do.

Everyone here is okay with a dealer who excercises their right to establish the prices they sell vehicles for when they are at 5% under invoice. Then points the finger when they use the same right to do a market adjustment. It's called capitalism. Don't like the price.. find another dealer.

I don't think anyone here is new to the idea of capitalism. Most of us just feel like cheap scummy practices like this are what gives the market such a predictably bad wrap, and we express our distaste for it. No need to constantly remind us why it's "ok" for people do crappy stuff like purely to make a quick buck off of peoples ignorance. It's fun to poke at a ridiculous $2000 add on mysteriously titled gladiator. Additionally, most of us did find another dealership, I know I did.

We are just informing each other of good and bad deals. It's a community. We are looking out for each other. So no one has to waste their time walking into a dealership who has the JT above MSRP. That is the whole purpose of a forum. Have questions answered , be informed on everything that relates to the topic.

Agreed the way they word the ADM is rather comical. I wasn't trying to come off as a condescending jerk.. I apologize to anyone who read it that way.

Most of those second sticker options look like normal factory options.... Like the truck comes with mats, tool kit and front and rear grab handles.
