Me too. I just got notice it is shipping tomorrow and it is expected next Friday (12/21).

Now the question is pick up for Xmas or wait till Jan 3 and see if there are any incentives.

Almost out of this thread. Time to update my signature.

I got the Shipment notice this morning at 7:30am (yesterday it was Production Scheduled). Got a call at 4pm it was at the dealership and I pick it up tomorrow. Crazy. I ordered it 11/19...that's super quick!

After much debate in my mind about which color to go with I placed my order about 2 hours ago. In a few short (long) weeks I'll be receiving the following...

Sport S in Billet
-6-speed manual transmission
-Black 3-piece hard top
-3.73 gear ratio
-Anti-spin differential
-Power convenience

Excited is an understatement.

Mine is sitting in Winton-Salem, NC right now. 25 days till I'm home from Japan and get to pick it up! I'm tempted to ask the dealership to send me some pics before i lose my mind!

Mine arrived at dealer this morning!... Ordered 11/23 at dealer! Production email was 11/28 and in 18 days it's at the dealer. Now that is fast!! Probably helped that I am only 100 miles from the plant
Can't pick up until the 28th though...out of town...

Here's mine, which I just got this week.

Sorry for the bad picture. It was deeply overcast and raining.

Got mine Friday. Worth every bit of the wait. I was surprised that they ship from the factory with both tops installed...wasn't anticipating the removal of the hard top just to remove the soft top and then putting the hard top back on. Before I start on this, anyone know if you can somehow remove the soft top without removing the hardtop?

Congrats on the new ride- re: soft top removal, hardtop has GOT to come off!

Finally, the Jeep I ordered came in last Wednesday. I was able to pick it up Friday after the leather was added. I am taking it tomorrow to get the windows tinted. When I told him I would like the "illegal tint" he said that some of the jeep owners wished they went with a lighter tint. Anyone had any problems with the dark tint?

I finally received my first message from VOTS, 8 days after placing the order, and it is scheduled for production. Dealer thought it would be about 5-6 weeks including a holiday shutdown.

No Billet on Moab???

I'm trying to order a Moab JKU in Billet, but my dealer is prevented from ordering it - they are only permitted to order Black, Whilte and Rock Lobster.

Any ideas why Billet would be available on Sport & Rubicon, but not the Moab?

My order with the dealer is on hold till I sort this out.

so muchas gracias for any ideas!

Some of the special editions are only available in limited colors. Nothing you can do about it.

Shipment!

Ordered 11/27. Went from Production straight to Trim Monday morning then this morning, Shipment. Got to call tomorrow to get my estimated delivery and hoping for a Christmas miracle but hopefully by the end of next week the latest.

I'm in Los Angeles area. Would be helpful to know what your locale for those just getting their orders in.
