It'll be a long 3 weeks before my JKUR (hopefully) gets here, but at least now I have an actual date to look forward to.

Anyone know how long it takes to go from paint to shipping. I can't imagine it's very long. Don't they pretty much make them in a day? What's been the experience for you lucky guys driving them already.

Mine went from paint to inspection to railcar all in a day. They get moving fast! Good luck

Thanks for these pictures. Mind you I've yet to see one in person but all the pictures are leading me to think this is one of those really interesting colors that changes a great deal in different lighting situations. Not so much as a pearl but along those lines. Personally I like that. It keeps it interesting to look at. My 2010 JKRU is white and that was my second choice. I glad I'm waiting for billet.

Just ordered

I took the plunge and put in my order yesterday for a Billet Sport S, auto, connectivity, sirius, 3.73, hardtop and airbags! This morning I got my VON. How long before it shows up in VOTS?

Do you guys think that it's better or worse for me that all the billets are flowing out? Do they build in waves where they only do a certain color a week and mine won't happen for another 6 weeks because they just finished all the billet orders? Or it's better in that the Billet line is flowing and perhaps mine will come faster?

Thanks

From what my dealer told me its all about allocation opening up and whether they put on sold order/ hot.
I ordered Billet JKUR 9/18 had Von two days later and was in D1 at day 3. Sat in production scheduled all last week.
Build/ paint to inspection since Tuesday of this week, ships tomorrow.
The day I ordered my sales rep called his Chrysler rep and he said allocation opened that morning and gave him my order number.
I heard leather and 6 speed are most hold ups currently.

So how accurate are the "future" dates listed in Insight? Mine finally showed up there this morning as being in D1 status. Insight shows that it should be unloaded from a rail car in Colorado on 10/23. That would be quicker than the 6-8 weeks the dealer mentioned. The dealer placed my order on 9/20.

My future date to dealer always changed. Then it stuck with a delivery to dealer on the 28th but was there on the 27th in the evening so its pretty close.

Mileage may vary. There are many factors involved in shipping because there is cost to worry about. Mine took over 2 weeks to go from built to shipped.

I had my ship date as 10/5 since beginning of last week 9/24 and I thought same thing. How can they predict that and it hasn't started. But here we are and it's done and ships tomorrow 10/5. So I would just keep an eye on it and plan it to be very close to those dates in Insight.

I called IAmJeep this morning to see where I am in the process. They told me the estimated ship date is 10/16. So, either the dealer was wrong, mistyped, or they pushed my ship date back. My dealer had told me 10/6, so I have an extra 10 days over what I was first told.

Billet looks great at night, literally drove 45 minutes to go see this as it showed up on a dealer lot in ST.LOUIS and they were so in love with the color they wanted to stay at the AA discount until the following morning,

I just got mine yesterday. It was the first one the dealer had gotten in and he said that 4 of the sales people said they could sell it immediately. He ordered 4 right after he saw my rig. :-)

I am way happier with the Sahara rims than I thought I would be. So much so that I'm thinking about wearing out the tread on the stock tires before they are swapped out for some 15's.

I still think the rubi rims look better, but my wife said she thought they were ugly and likes the Saharas better. And that they actually go better with Billet. Personal preference I guess, but that did make me feel good.

The bumper inserts were something else I was concerned about. It's strange but the back one looks to be color matched, but the front one definitely is the old bright silver color. It could be the light playing tricks though? I was planning on removing both, but may just do the front because I like the way the back end looks.

My friend asked me if mine was purple in the rain yesterday. I didn't notice the color in the specs. Can't wait for everyone to get theirs and see it in person.
