I was able to get the build sheet from emailing Chrysler with the last 8 of my VIN however. My Dealer today said he hasn't gotten any updates either, so I don't know whats going on...hopefully I'll get a D1 update soon.
So I was reading YOUR POST and thought it was MY POST!! I too ordered 8/12 went D 8/18ish and have NOT MOVED SINCE.

Pat, does your comment mean August is done scheduling or sept?!?

Reason I REALLY need it soon is cause I found some willing to give me $1800 more than the dealer on my Subaru trade.

So I'm in a little different boat than most of yall, I ordered my JKUR, hoping for a Jan 12 delivery date and looks like she'll show up here in a week or so...I don't get back from my camping trip to the middle east until Jan, so she's in yalls boat and I'm in your ordered JKs boats...life is strange

My ship date is scheduled for 9/9 so taht is less than 2 weeks considering next Monday is holiday. I heard it can take longer in shipping and can sometimes get stuck from railcar to truck as the union workers take their time when they want to get around to working. At least my dealer said that is what happened with a couple cars they ordered. Took a while to get loaded on trucks.

Excitied as I am a virgin jeep guy and ready to use my dual top and run with soft top for a month before the cold weather starts to set in Colorado.
That's cause for excitement! May I ask how you know the estimated ship date?

Nice! That's basically the exact spec and color of what I'm going to order this weekend.

What are your expectations on delivery? October?

All I can say is my dealer offered me about 4.8% below invoice for a factory order (if my math is correct and I base it on the invoice price from post 1) with out hardly any persuading. Going down on Friday to place my order and will see if they stick to it. Their doc fees are a little steep so that bites into it some but its still looking like a good deal.

Oh dang, Do you mean that the Orders placed in August should be built in October? I ordered on the 12th of August and haven't hit D1 yet....though I have seen a few people on here that have ordered between a few days before or a few after I did and have already been scheduled or even built.
I hope it won't be until all the way until October before I even hit D1.

Chrysler is absolutely killing it with the new engine. Will be interesting to see what happens when they actually start the marketing campaign.

For those in D status, it took a full three weeks for me to get to d1, then just a week for I and KZ. Hang tight!

Say it ain't so.. I ordered a Crush two door on 8/13. Was due to begin production on 8/22 then moved to 9/6. I hope you are not saying it's been moved again to October !!

So are you saying my dealer can find out more information about my jeep order and they are not willing to check it for me?

DANG THIS SUCKS!!

I have a my subaru promised to a person and told him 4-8 weeks max and you are saying it looks like my 8/12 order which is in D status right now is likely not to be scheduled until October production? Ugggggg!!!!

What doesn't make sense is my dealer has received NO 2012's and I think I am the only PAID order for this dealer- and we are still getting screwed. I guess it doesn't pay to live in a small college town in NH huh. Bummer!!

I was waiting on the better engine and tranny, but the fact they can't even open the paint cans is enough to make me throw up my hands and get a smart car or something instead. There better be some incentives coming. You can get a GC in any color under the rainbow, but can't even get a blue jeep unless you hurry up and get smurfette. It's pathetic.

Maybe you could convince the dealer to give you a body colored red top with it instead then at least you could have papa smurf

Then I'd advise you to go buy a GC and quit carping...

The mass dealers I went to weren't very good either. I had to go down to central CT to find a dealer who was actually interested in making a sale.

That's awesome. I wish I had the self esteem required to drive that car. I would put white trim and black pupils over the headlights.

Who wants call of duty, when you can have papa smurf?

No kidding? Good for him. The good thing about old Lee is he would let you order any color you wanted. Forcing one color interior was not in his MO either. He wanted to sell cars, not spoon feed his customers over the lifespan of the model. But the guys running the company now must know what they are doing.

Pat:
Your post last evening really got a bunch of us bummed. I speak of the post where you said that 'August orders are schd for October' or something to that effect. I asked my dlr about that and he said he thinks that applies only to dlr orders and that sold orders would not be affected. Mine was ordered 8/13 and is in D now.

Can you comment on that ? I know Crush (my color) was delayed to 9/6 but I'd not like to wait til October

Thanks, BTW, for all you do for us...

Is this saying you can now order factory black leather? Same price as tan? Same look only black?
Thanks Pat
