Good luck! I just ordered mine about 2 weeks ago. Are you planning to order it? It will probably be difficult to find one off the lot manual with all the stuff you want. I'm told it takes 8-10 weeks to order, I'll keep you posted once they provide a VIN #. I LOVE the Jeep Green, that's what I got, limited 4x4.
Some people just have to have stick, I'm sure you will love it! The first time I drove the CVT, I hated it too, but once I test drove it again in the limited 4x4 and it was nicer inside, it was a completely different feel and I loved it.
