    Congrats! and welcome back! I ran into the same problem last month. Luckily I found what seemed to be the only 3.6 auto in mojito on the west coast a couple hours away that my dealer was able to trade on.

    A couple days later I got a return email from Tim Kuniskis. If it’s not too late, try this:

    “Your dealer should be able to submit a "sold order" for you in the configuration you desire.

    The key is that it needs to be ordered in your name as a sold unit (versus a for stock order).”

    Next he asked if I wanted to spend $600 dollars on a mopar reinforced tire bracket. I didn't do any research and wasn't sure of this was a good or bad option. So I left that out also. I need to look into this before I get one. Hundred bucks more and I can get the evo carrier.

    So anyways, I'm happy with I settled on, papers were signed and I have a 2 month wait. In the meantime, I have a lot of reading and parts to purchase. I think I'm going a different direction than with my dozer. But who knows. Besides, I have a ton of questions and no better forum than this one aAttachment 7294Attachment 7295

    Looking at that build sheet, at bottom I see where it says priority: 4 - dealer order. That's why it wouldn't let you order a 3.6 auto. If the dealer had selected "sold order" like they should have it would have showed up as an option. If you are happy with the 4 go for it, it's a great engine. Otherwise I'd call the dealer and tell them to get their head out of their ass and order correctly if u want a 3.6 auto.

    Just a heads up. Either way congrats on the new Jeep.

    Let the fun begin.....

    Get to ordering stuff and let us know what you ordered and why. I like the color also. I have seen it in the bright sun and it is amazing.

    That's interesting, it was really odd for him because he's the only guy that orders for the dealer. He had me test drive a sport with the 2.0 and actually I was impressed with the pep it had merging onto the interstate.

    I'll probably post on here everything I do to it, just like my old build thread.

    Congrats on the new rig. The dealer has a few days where they can change your order. I’d have them change it to a sold vehicle vs dealer order. Sold vehicles take priority at the factory. You might be waiting longer if not. They try and meet the 45-60 day delivery goal on “sold vehicle” orders. Then have them remove the ez-order line, your led lights you didn’t want (mine froze over 5 times coming home from the dealership in the snow last week after picking it up) and get the engine you want, whatever that is. Also if you’re not getting 7-8% off FFP pricing you might want to shop around. I just paid $45k for my 19 I ordered with a msrp of $52k just a few hours away from you. You’re spending a lot of money so don’t regret not getting what you want because the dealer has no idea what they are doing.
    Congrats on the new rig. Love that Sting color!

    You are correct. He just called me and we're got the 3.6 instead of the 2.0. I also had him throw in the mopar tailgate carrier. He still couldn't remove the led lights. But he did the final order this morning under customer

    Good stuff! You definitely want your name on the window sticker that says built for Marlo... I think you’ll like the 3.6 better. I’m loving mine, I’ve only had it 5 days. It feels like getting into the JK until you start and drive it, then it’s like a Mercedes on steroids
