    Anyone take care of their purchase in the NY/NJ/CT area? I'm looking to find a reputable dealer, who is willing to go to invoice or under. I hear great things about travis at Tri-City, but I'd prefer not to haul all the way to NC, but I will if it makes sense. Just trying to see what's around that is a little closer.

    I'm doing the leg work as we speak as well. Seems like no one in the tri-state (or new england areas) are willing to work a bit for our business. Apparently too many/so many people have tons of money now a days so the dealers don't have that "drive" or motivation to work with buyers now a days. It's more of a cocky attitude like "well if you don't overpay-tons of other morons will" That being said, forget them all, i'll be more than happy to drive down to NC if that's what it takes to get a dealer with a real handle on customer appreciation. I have ten dealers to make some calls to over the next few weeks while I wait for my color to become available. One of them is in Pennsylvania. Look into it.

    I've now tried all the dealers on LI, and the lowest I got was MSRP. I don't see CT venturing far off that same result. Maybe PA is our best bet?

    Yes, I'll be looking into anything known to be willing to move below invoice within a 10 hour ride. I haven't looked into Westchester area yet.

    Got mine (black rubicon) in Rochester NY at Vision Jeep. Spoke to John Schneider, great guy - honored the tread lightly Affiliate control number at invoice price and even found me the hard to find tri fold hard tonneau cover. Picked it up and drove it back to Long Island (East Hampton). Well worth the travel

    Hey @TG2500 love to see pictures (inside and out) of your hard trifold tonneau cover. You are the first one that I have heard the got that hard tonneau cover. What did they charge you for that cover? And did you have to have the trail rail system in order to mount the hard folding tonneau cover? Thanks

    Bought mine from Chris G. at Rockland Jeep a couple weeks ago. He's a fellow enthusiast and was easy to work with. I won't disclose what I paid, but hit him up and let him know [email protected] sent you.

    I'm in Ridgefield, CT.

    So this morning I get a phone call from Smith Haven here on Long Island and they have a black overland if I wanted to look at it. Just went there, told them my expectations, and they came back to me under invoice on a Gobi overland. 500 down to show I’m serious but it’s refundable if I get cold feet.
    I’m gonna go with them, not cause they’re the best priced, but they were the best without me having to travel, and I didn’t have to do the BS song and dance.

    Which is funny because I've been getting the run around from smithhaven which sucks because I'm about 5 minutes away. I've been trying to get the kind of no BS sales experience they keep telling me about but it's hard to do that when they won't discuss pricing.

    So I went in letting them know what my offer sheets looked like, and that I'd be willing to take a slight hit off the 5% off Invoice deals that everyone has been getting, as I'd be saving time and money by not traveling. I dealt with Kristina V, and turns out I know the finance manager since we were kids. I'd keep at it with them, as I tried Browns and Atlantic, and both came in over MSRP or at MSRP.

    Got Mine (Rubicon) from Precision Jeep Dodge in Butler NJ and they did under MSRP $500 (not a lot but better than nothing). Joe is the manager.
