First Time Jeep Buyer-Question About Ordering

Hello all,
I've spent several weeks reading all the posts before posting, and I wanted to read as much as possible before finally deciding to order a Wrangler, which I just did yesterday. There are a lot of experts available here and I picked up a lot of info that helped me with my decision. Yesterday I ordered a Sport S, Black Clearcoat, Auto Transmission, Power Convenience, Tow Group, Alpine Premium stereo, slush mats and hard top. I'll look at frameless soft tops next spring.
I'm 55 and have wanted a Jeep all my life. It's a bucket list type of thing I guess. Anyway I don't want to ramble. I'd appreciate it if anyone has any recent experience with ordering, any feedback on how long it took from order to delivery. I know the Wranglers are popular right now, so maybe the assembly plant might be a little slow.
Thanks a lot
Logan, Ohio

welcome Logan!

I just got my 2013 a couple weeks ago. I ordered on 18 July, it "officially" went into production on 31 July, and I picked it up on 28 August. If you gave your dealer your email address, you'll receive email updates from Jeep.

If you have a VON on your order sheet already, you can track your Jeep at:

www.jeep.com/vots

but it's not updated as quickly; calling 877-IAMJEEP (426-5337) once you've been issued your VIN will get you more up-to-date info, but the "good" information seems to be based on the rep you happen to get on the phone.

Also, definitely hang out in this thread here: www.wranglerforum.com/f33/2013-jk-order-waiting-room-164814.html

One of the awesome members here, keschete, can look up your Jeep's status as it goes through the stages if you PM her your VIN.

Congrats on the order!
