I still wouldn't expect delivery until late august. I know that there are still 2011s that haven't been built and even if they they start framing on 7/18 they will hold the new 12s, at least 2 weeks containment. Then they have to try to get the thousands they already have built shipped, plus the 600 or so a day they build after that.

Thanks Pat for the quick reply. Do you have any idea when the paint pics or "chips" will come out so we can see the different varieties?

Can't seem to get the link to work albeit I'm on my phone. It just says "vehicle trace" and something about the VIN has to be either 8 or 17 letters long.

No clue on the paint yet. I am just as frustrated/anxious as many of you. I am trying to make some Milous type contacts but it's slow going. Giving Milous a 2012 Wrangler is sounding better and better everyday.

I wonder if you'll have to wait until Friday for your VIN to work (which is what it sounds like I'll have to do...) NDRugby said that's what happened to him...

That's possible but the error message he got means the link is wrong.

I'm getting this one... "Sorry, we could not find any of the vehicles you requested."

Is that what you were getting until that Friday?

Exactly. You're fine. It'll grow.

O.K. You guys are really starting to piss me off with all of these order status. I really would like to go to the dealer and order one for myself. But I'm a procrastinator. I really want to drive one before I buy one. And the last time I ordered a JK(2008 model), it was in June but did not come in until November. And I ain't waiting this time. Once I drive one and like it, I buying it. But ordering one is really cool because they put your name on the window sticker. Ain't that some sh*t.

I ain't tryin' to scare nobody. That's just the way it happened. It wasn't fun either. New JK's kept showing up on the dealers lots and mine was nowhere to be found. Almost just bought one off the lot. Maybe it was the dealers allocation. I know it was a while before it went in to D status. But I finally got what I ordered, and enjoyed it while I owned it. So be patient.

I can see wanting to procrastinate; I couldn't wait though...

I recall an insider from Allpar mentioning that the 12' was supposed to have a redesigned front-end (i.e. new lights and windshield-more rake). My 'inside guy' said that wasn't coming until at least 13' and the 12' sheet metal would be the same as 07-11. Has anyone heard anything either way on this rumor? It's definitely interesting buying a truck sight-unseen...

I tried mine earlier and had the same issue. My guess is there is a system problem.

The 12 will look like the 11.

Pat - speaking of Milous, were you able to find out more about 2012 half door orders? Joe Veltri, VP Product Planning for Chrysler has publicly stated that half doors will continue as an option on Wrangler, including in the next redesign.

Maybe they are late availability, like some of the colors?

Milous should know...

Made D1 status!

My Sahara Tan Rubicon Unlimited just reached D1 status with an estimated ship date of 7/26. I know this date is optimistic at best but I am still way stoked. I placed my order on 6/23.

Sorry to hear about folks who had difficulty placing an advanced order. My experience was quite the opposite. I have to admit that it has been a while since my last jeep (a TJ) and I was unaware of the new Pentastar engine when I decided to trade in my modded Land Rover on a 2011 Unlimited. A friend of mine just bought a JK and recommended a that I talk to Brian Machala at the dealership in Brunswick Oh. I was very specific about what I wanted. He was the one that mentioned the new engine and the availability of body color flares and top on the Rubicons in 2012. He is a real enthusiast with a Rubicon of his own. I felt a bit bad signing up to pay invoice when the final figure is unknown, but after hearing about the crappy experience many of you have had, I am glad to pay this amount in exchange for dealing with someone who wants to do right by the customer. Now I am counting the minutes until it shows up. There are some good sales folks out there. Many thanks to Pat as well for his info.

Regards,
Rod
Cleveland OH

Really? I've had no issues today. If you're getting that error specifically, check to make sure the VIN is right and you have all 17 digits in there.

It must have been a momentary glitch as it works now. It's saved as a favorite so I don't fat finger it.

Ya know..theres always an Earl Schibe paint job for $199.99 if the pressure builds too great. I wonder if he is still in business. I seem to recall at one point it was $49.99 or less for a repaint.

I remember $29.99 in the 60's. As I recall that lost leader was no masking, one coat, take your chances! And Gas was $0.25 in San Diego and about $0.20 in TJ!

Dang, I haven't even thought about mods yet! Will I be ostracized? Removed from the community for no mods! Sheer blasphemy I tell you. I guess I can go down to the local auto parts store and by an air freshner. Will that allow me into the club?

Actually the lock box and lugs are very good ideas.

That's it. You're done. Outta here. I heard Chrysler is even pulling your D1 status as we speak.

I'm not planning on doing any real modifications. Just 'bolt-ons'. I posted a confession earlier that I am a 'stocker'. I'm just looking for small conveniences and things Chrysler forgot, like door sill protection, fuel door, slush mats, sissy bars, etc.

sissy bars? Aren't those the bars that went onto the back of a bike when we were 6 years old? Bill, are you trying to find your youth? Remember, it's a state of mind..

I'll confess also, it will be a while for I do any serious mods and is in part why I chose a Rubicon. Mats for Mexico mud and sand is a must. Locks so my wheels don't disappear while I drink a cerveza at the bar and a lockbox to store the passport are on the list.
