I order my 2010 2Dr Sahara on Monday from a dealer in Ohio. Ended up paying $300 less than FWP (invoice). However, keep in mind that the invoice price for the 2010 Wranglers have increased by about $600-$700. The MSRP is relatively the same. I really didn't do any negotiating, just went in and told them what I wanted. He gave me a price of $400 over invoice and I left. A few days later he called and said my 'new' price was $26,000. I had my parents go in and put $100.00 down and make sure everything was correct. I order a 2Dr Sahara Manual with a soft-top, Dark Charcoal with side airbags, anti spin, and 3.73 ratio. I was planning on ordering the tow package but was told Jeep may be putting on a smaller receiver than in previous years, so i decided to play it safe and wait. But I was looking at pictures from dealers online and it looks like they are using a 2-inch hitch. Might see if I can add it to my order, as long as it wont screw things up. One last thing, I was told that Jeep is trying to decrease the time from order to delivery to 4 weeks. I believe it when I see it. Can't wait to get mine!!!!!

Thanks for such a detailed reply britmsu -
So far, the few dealerships we have spoken to have not wanted to go below invoice and one is above.
We are wanting to order a Wrangler Sport, Charcoal Gray Soft Top with side airbags, anti spin and 3.73 ratio - so, net net, a lot like your order. : )
We do want the tow package as well so that is interesting what you said about the hitch. Looks like we will have to look into the actual size of it first.
Well, now that I know you got below invoice by a bit, I am more inclined to negotiate a bit harder....If they can't go below invoice, perhaps they can "sweeten" the deal a bit with add -odds ?? (just a thought...) Guess it will all come down to who wants to sell us one the most. You aren't by any chance located somewhere in the Pacific Northwest are you - (if so, I'd be curious to know what dealer you went with..? )
Again - thanks for your input.

It is so nice to know that I am not the ONLY person in the whole world who wants side airbags in a Wrangler. People on other forums have made rude remarks and salesmen have chuckled at me when I told them I wanted them. Thanks for sharing!

That is so funny.... and yes, I can relate.
When we were looking at the '09's, we kept asking for one with side air bags, and they always looked at us like "why??"....
But I would not budge, and refused to even consider one without them -
With 3 of my kids expected to be driving this as well, I would never forgive myself if I didn't buy the extra protection and later regretted it....For the small extra amount that they are in regards to the whole price, I can't figure out why you wouldn't want them..."just in case"....
Thanks to you too for sharing -
It's not just a "jeep thing"...it is a "safe jeep thing"

Ordered my from Tom Ahl in Lima, Ohio. I was offered the Friends and Family pricing by the salesperson. I do not know anyone that works or is affiliated with Chrysler, but the dealer offered me the F&F pricing anyway. Salespeople usually have clients with extra F&F pricing codes available. If they want to sale a car, you might be able to finagle a F&F price. Hope you can find the right price!!!

Just curious, did either of you select Dark Khaki/Medium Khaki interior to go with the Dark Charcoal exterior? I think this would look really cool together and am thinking of ordering also. Jeep discontinued my two favorite colors -- Sunburst Orange and Detonator Yellow! Otherwise, I would be ordering Sunburst with Khaki interior.

Just picked up my new 09 Wrangler Sahara last weekend, auto, remote starter and dual tops, got $2202.00 plus $1500.00 rebate off sticker, love it so far and I'm already accessorizing like I did my Harleys in the past.

where did you pick up your sahara? looking for similar deals on long island(which they have) but color and lack of a side airbags are issues.

I had to order mine. Do not know when it will be delivered but it should not take longer than 6-8 weeks. I was told Jeep is trying to get ordered vehicles to the customer within 4 weeks. Hope that is the case, but I'm not going to hold my breath. Finding a Wrangler with side airbags is nearly impossible. But good luck with your search.
