I just saw ericlack post, his Sahara also became an Arctic so I guess I'm not alone. But a Black Arctic?? I wonder what other surprises the Chrysler Build Computer has for us.

When am I going to see a similar picture in Sanford? Do I need to drive over there and put my foot in someone's ass to get things moving?

I'll be emailing you shortly. And yes, you can go over there and put a foot in Brians a$$. Tell him that's from me.

I actually ordered an Arctic & it shows up black on VOT check site. They did not spell my name right, so if it comes in black then I will not have to take it.

How long after I get a VON will it take to get a status?

I call I AM JEEP and they said it would be a month before the order was in their system ... that doesn't sound right.

I don't have a POC or a VIN, just the VON. I wanted to verify that it has the options I want on it.

I have bought from Hassel but they are no longer Jeep Dealers, they switched to BMW and sold Jeep to Ryan who are also no where around their service was good. Merrick is now where Ryan was. I bought my '96 GC from Kings Plaza in Brooklyn, but they are too far. My first Jeep came from Speed in Brooklyn near KP, They were the ONLY Jeep dealer back then (early 70s) I guess when you have owned between my sons and myself 7 Jeeps (with 4 more in the immediate family) you get to know them all. I even liked Island Jeep and bought one from them. Westbury owns Grand Prix, Hempstead and one other that I don't recall I always felt they spoke as one but I don't really know if that is true. I am talking about Nassau County New York,where I live.

I'm glad to see other Long Islanders on this thread. What dealership did you end up going with and, if you don't mind me asking, what kind of deal did they give you?

Hi Matador, I ordered from Merrick in Wantaugh only because they were close (I'm in Long Beach) and seemed open and were easy to talk to. After all the nonsense I don't think I would recommend them.They ordered mine as Dealer stock with a 99 priority, I had given a deposit and should have been listed as "sold order with 01 priority. They did give me the TL discount and I was entitled to Lease Loyalty/ or Conquest, a different make vehicle under lease. When I checked Yesterday all the options were correct except my Jeep was listed as " Sahara Arctic" I ordered a Black Regular Sahara. This may be a Chrysler Computer Glitch though, time will tell.
On another note does any one know how to get onto Insight? I have the VIN, was told by Jeep customer Service that I am on D-1 ? Perhaps ndruby if you are on? I would appreciate it.
thanks,Lew

I have my baby. I love the Dozer color. Driving a dream. I was most impressed by the window sticker that said "This vehilce specially manufactured for "my name". I hate to say it, but I almost cried. 333 mile tonight. She is going to the mountains of NC this weekend to the Blue Ridge Parkway from Boone to Asheville. I really want to get my tag in the mail.....sigh. My order status was not 99 but for a customer paid order. Ordered on 09/09/2011, D1 status on 09/15/2011, built 09/23/2011 and Delivered on 10/06/2011 to the dealer. According to Insight, she sat in ATL for 6 days? I can say this Jeep will be mine along time. I am very pleased.

Does anyone know at what stage the window sticker becomes available? is it after it is en route to the dealer?

I "almost" bought a Smurf blue Wrangler Unlimited Sahara last night--however the wife HATED the color. Which made me because I think the Cosmos blue with painted fenders and matching hard top looks great.

Anyway, I had read earlier in this thread about 8 weeks ago, that they may be adding a replacement blue during the winter months. Does anyone know if there is any truth to that?

Thank you in advance

I also strongly dislike the Cosmos blue...if they had a dark Navy or Midnight blue I woulda' jumped on it.

The VIN and make/model should be all that's needed for a quote. You don't need a build sheet or window sticker. My window sticker did not become available until the vehicle was enroute to the dealer and @ 1 week after KZ status.

They gave me an estimate based on the info I gave them. They said the VIN wouldn't work in their systems yet so I gave them msrp and the gave me an idea of what is should cost but said they can't do an official quote without the window sticker or the VIN showing up in their system

Some companies are like that, I guess. I use Progressive, and it would not give an online quote with the VIN for the reasons you mentioned. A call to customer service and they could quote it and issue cards.

Good luck!

I stopped by the dealership after work and got a copy of the POC.

They did put it in as a sold order, but the build priority is 99. Am I screwed? Do I need to get them to correct it?

My Crush Sahara became Arctic also! When I think Arctic, I don't typically think of orange!

Thanks. Wow, that was fast. Nice.

So perhaps the build priority is irrelevant?

I don't really know what the build priority means. Hope you get yours as fast as I did but there are lots of people who have waited a really long time. Good Luck! And it is worth the wait

Don't worry about being stuck in D1. I was stuck in D1 "Scheduled to be built" for..9 days? Then next day my dealer called and asked if I checked my status. I hadn't..it was on a train. They missed my updates but damn if it wasn't better than christmas. Its on a train 2 hrs north of me right now......
