Build-Your-Ride: Factory Order Your Jeep

Vehicle manufacturers work really hard to put out trims and models that are desirable for everyone. They like to make sure these different levels get mass produced so that customers can get their vehicle without the wait. While these main market vehicles are incredible, some of us grew up on build-a-bears, legos, and other massively customizable toys. We want more than what comes typically; we want the ultimate customization experience! There are few vehicles as fun to customize as a Jeep. When it comes to really putting your mark on the best-known off-roading vehicle, a factory order Jeep is the way to go. Let’s look at what makes ordering a custom Jeep really worth it and if you should consider a build-a-ride experience.

Factory Ordering Is Easier Than You Think

Due to recent events and the huge growth in technology, there has been a big push for a lot of different services to be online. You can order groceries, book a hotel, and even purchase a car through your computer or phone. You don’t even have to pick up the phone and call someone anymore.

Creating your custom Jeep is no exception. You can easily Google your favorite Jeep dealership, and many of them will have the ability to customize a vehicle right there on their website! The ability to do in-depth customization online and without ever having to interact with other people is a huge draw for many Jeep buyers. This also makes customizing a Jeep incredibly accessible for anyone interested in doing so. You don’t have to leave your house, in fact, you don’t even have to leave your bed if you can reach your phone from it! Talk about ease of access.

This is also a great option for anyone who may not already have a vehicle they want to trade, or maybe they don’t have a vehicle at all. You don’t have to ask someone to drive you into the dealership to help you get a vehicle if you do it online. However, if you’re a little more old-fashioned and enjoy being able to actually talk to people, then the Jeep sales crew is able to help you in person as well.

Regardless of how you go about customizing your Jeep, by yourself or with a sales associate, it’s a truly simple process. You can even get a tracking number! It’s like when you order a package online, and you know exactly when it’s coming so you can sit and wait for it! Honestly, the whole process is actually pretty enjoyable, and we kind of love that you can online order a car.

Pick and Choose Want You Want

When you first start the process of factory ordering your Jeep, you select the vehicle you want. That’s the first choice you get to make, and it’s not much different than if you were at a dealership. After that, though, it’s all you. You don’t have to worry about the availability of trims or colors and you don’t have to sacrifice a want for a need. You get to pick any of the trims for the model you want, and then you can break it down even further. You can personalize the rims and tires, you get to select the exterior and interior colors, and you can consider the different safety, convenience, and style packages available.

If there is something you really need your vehicle to have, you can add it, or you can choose the trim that already has it equipped. For example, many people like to have every safety feature a brand has available, so they might buy a lower trim and add on safety packages. Other things you may feel like are definite wants, and those can be added with the literal click of a button. If you want a sunroof, click! Sunroof added to your Jeep. You don’t like the interior protection package, click! It’s out of there, and you don’t get charged for it. Factory ordering a Jeep allows you so much flexibility, and you can really adjust and change just about everything about your Jeep if you want to.

Leaving an Impression

Jeeps started out as these incredibly rugged, fun vehicles that were meant to get down and dirty. While they are still very much rugged, fun, and able to handle the mud just fine, they are very much also a status vehicle. Jeeps are known for being quality, highly capable, and incredibly versatile. They have a signature look all on their own that stands out from other vehicles on the road.

If you customize the way that your Jeep looks, you are making a statement. You’re showing the world that you are proud of both yourself and your vehicle. If you pull up to your favorite hiking trail in a one-of-a-kind Jeep, people will notice. You can essentially put everything but your name on it. (Well, actually, you could put your name on it too). If you’re going to spend the money on a new Jeep, you may as well personalize it!

Let’s Talk About Money

We’ve touched on the money concept a few times, but let’s go ahead and just dig deeper into the money aspect of factory ordering something custom. A lot of people don’t customize their vehicles because they think it’s going to cost an arm, a leg, and their third child’s college fund, but that just isn’t the case. Jeep has its baseline vehicle prices, trim prices, and prices for every optional package and feature clearly listed.

When you custom order your Jeep, you can actually see the breakdown of what things cost and how much a certain feature or aspect will add to your end total. At the end of it all, you get the total cost and what the monthly payments or lease would look like. All of these things add to your peace of mind, but unless you ask for the Jeep to be plated in real gold and silver, your cost will be in the same ballpark as what it would cost you to buy one off the lot. In fact, depending on what you opt for, you can actually save some money!

The other financial benefit of factory ordering your Jeep is there might be price cuts, deals, or coupons that you may not have when buying something off the lot. Depending on how you go about it, you can get an allowance to spend on additional features, you can get special financing rates, and you can even opt to lease your custom Jeep! You still get the incredible warranties and standard offers of on-the-lot Jeeps, but you get those additional perks as well. In terms of finances, building a custom Jeep makes sense.

Have a Little Fun by Customizing Your Next Jeep

If you like the standard, run-of-the-mill Jeep, you are in no way wrong. The standard Jeeps come incredibly well prepped, and they all look amazing. We feel that if you’re going to spend a lot of money on a vehicle anyways, you may as well make it as true to yourself as possible. Jeep makes this possible through their factory order program that allows you to pick and choose the different features and designs to create the best version of the vehicle you want. It really doesn’t cost that much more (depending on what you do), and showing up at your friend’s place, a restaurant, or even just driving down the street to a grocery store feels better when your vehicle is personalized. Not only that, but you’ll have all the knowledge of what the different features of your Jeep are and how they work because you chose them.
