I am jealous. I have an 08 Limited with the smaller V8 engine (which is plenty for me). If I remember correctly, the MSRP was around $41k. I got it for $34k + taxes. This was back in September, 07.
I would say the deal is pretty good. I don't think Jeep is going away. It might not be part of Chrysler, but it will be around. If you're happy with that dealership, I say go for it since you're happy with that price.

From what I've just encountered, that is a very good price. If I had received a similar amount off of MSRP, I would have purchased.
What I don't understand is why the MSRP is so high. An Overland is $45,325 without the rear DVD.
Can you break out the rebates? Did you receive a coupon from Chrysler that provides you with an additional discount?
Does your rebate include the $1,000 they have (had) associated with Chrysler financial?
Where are you at (what area of the country)?
I personally think the deals will get better but I would pull the trigger if I were you and part of your discounts relate to the Chrysler coupon.
The Employee Pricing discount is only 2% off of invoice.
The best I could get was $10,325 off MSRP.

This is a fully loaded Limited and I am located in Ohio. I also looked at the Overland but did not like the color interior choices. The Limited and Overland have different color interiors. I was not crazy about the two tone choices in either vehicle but like the limited better.
I misquote on the rebate yesterday. I do qualify for the max rebate of $6,250 since I am coming off a lease. I believe they throw in additional $750 since my lease matures in March.
The rebates are broken down as follow:
Great Lakes Lease to Retail $750.00
Great Lakes Bus Center Financial Bonus Cash $1,000.00
Great Lakes Customer Cash Allowance $1,500.00
Great Lakes Bonus Cash $1,000.00
Great Lakes Owner Loyalty $2,000.00
$39,010 Base Price
$2,400 5.7 HEMI upgrade
$1,700 DVD System Group
$995 Aluminum Wheels
$995 Chrome Edition Group by Mopar
$280 Trailer Group
$500 High Intensity HeadLamps
$780 Destination Charge
$41,354 Employee Pricing per dealer
Paule - One thing I have noticed over last few weeks. I have visited 3 dealerships in my area and most of them will not negotiate below the employee pricing + rebates, saying that is the best offer and they would have to locate the car. I have since emailed few dealerships with the vehicle in inventory but will have to drive few hours to get the vehicle. My original offer from the dealership was $35,104 ($41,354 Employee Pricing - $6,250 Rebates) for this vehicle. They were looking to move vehicles by month end and said I could have it for $34,000 if I could pick it up by Saturday.
Hope that helps

I'm with Paule. It is a great price. Hope you take advantage of it.
Let us know what you end up doing.
And be careful in the F&I office. Don't buy the mop and glow.

That is very helpful. Thank you.
Here's what I was offered:
2009 Overland - No options (no rear DVD)
$40,082 Employee Pricing Plus
$39,000 Dealer Quoted Price
-$2,000 Denver BC Customer Cash Allowance
-$2,000 Owner Loyalty (See Note Below)*
Total discount of $10,325
-$1,000 Denver BC Chrysler Financial Bonus Cash**
Total: $34,000 (Discount of $11,325)
* I did not receive an owner loyalty coupon in the mail which apparently you need. However, I did receive an e-mail from Chrysler mentioning the owner loyalty bonus. The salesman at this dealership allegedly called a Chrysler customer service line and determined I was eligible and received a confirmation number from Chrysler that I was entitled to this discount. Sounds a little fishy to me but that is what I was told.
** I believe I also would have been eligible for this discount with the 0% financing for 48 months due to my credit score (upper 700s).
Also, this dealer did not have the vehicle I wanted. They located it at another dealer.
If I had another $1,000 off, I probably would have bit. The owner loyalty cash would be the reason. I believe Chrysler may end that and that would be $2,000 you'd lose although who really knows.
I do believe the general rebates will increase but maybe not until after April 1st.

In my previous post, I mentioned about receiving an e-mail from Chrysler mentioning the loyalty bonus and that one of the dealers called a customer service number to confirm my eligibility. I thought it sounded a little fishy.
Well, I looked back through my e-mails and found the e-mail from Chrysler. I think the confirmation was legit. The e-mail I got from Chrysler clearly states that I'm eligible for the owner loyalty bonus and that it was not transferable.
I have not heard whether this continues into March. The e-mail states it ends on March 2nd.
It reads, "Again, from now until March 2nd, you are eligible to receive a special ‘owners-only’ cash allowances* up to $2000 when you purchase a new Chrysler, Jeep, or Dodge vehicle. This Owner Loyalty Bonus Cash is in addition to the Employee Pricing Plus Plus incentive which offers employee pricing PLUS consumer rebates PLUS special financing offers. The amount of the loyalty cash allowance depends on the model you select, and it can be combined with most current incentives."
We'll see what they do for incentives for March.

I decided to roll the dice and wait until the end of March since my lease is not up until then. I contacted my previous sales person who said he would match the price I obtained on this Jeep and order it for me. I have dealt with him and this dealership and decided to let him have my business. Should be here in few weeks. My only risk was the incentive piece. They couldn’t guaranty if the rebates would change in March. They were able to inform me the employee pricing would continue in March. All the incentives stayed the same for me (rebates). The only thing that changed was Chrysler 0% financing over 36 months (instead of 48 months). You would think Chrysler would loosen this incentive to sell more cars (60 months). I am going through a credit union so it didn't impact me.
Have you had any more luck in your Overland search? I know the dealerships here are being very aggresive and are willing to deal to win your business.

When I did my factory order, they told me that I would get the better of rebates -- either the ones at the time I ordered or when the car arrived.
