I am able to get build updates over the phone, but does anybody know where to signup for the email updates? I have not received any emails on my vehicle build...

I sure hope mine is among the first ones to be built/painted when 9/4 comes around. My VOTS has not been updated since mid-August...

kthrash, if your JKUR also has saddle leather we're pretty much twins!

Nope I got black leather.

Nope, my VOTS has been stuck at "Production Scheduled" since 8/16! Is that even D1, or earlier?

I actually called 877-IAMJEEP today (for the first time): the first guy I spoke to couldn't find my order with the VON I gave him! The next person was able to pull it up, however, but had zero additional information for me. She suggested I'd call my dealership at the end of this week, and that they might have a VIN for me at that time...

Waiting sucks...

Iam not going to call Jeep to get an estimated ship date, all thats going to do is make the wait even longer since ill be counting the days down. Ive heard those dates can be off aswell and if my estimated day was off and i was exspecting it and it didnt show up id be mad. So ill just stay waiting but after seeing some of your guys ship dates iam sure mine is right around the same time.

This is the one color that might make me regret getting a 2012. Just saw this color on a charger the other day and it looked really good in person.

Went into D1 status today. Ordered 8/7. IAMJEEP said it was scheduled to load on rail car on 9/22 and offload in Twin Oaks on 9/23. I am guessing a few days after that I should have it. Can't wait since I will be without my truck after Saturday (sold privately since the dealers near me were ridiculously cheap on trade offers). Already started the Quadratec order.

My build:
JKU Rubicon
Billet
Auto
Dual tops
AC temp control
Connectivity
430N
Auto start

Can't wait!

I hadn't driven the '13 until today, but last week I had a dream that I went to drive one and hated it!

It was ridiculous...it wasn't even a JK that I drove in my dream, it was some weird looking truck that had suicide doors on the passenger side and barely enough room in the floor of the driver side to put a foot, let alone both feet!

Thankfully, the real test drive today went much better than the dream.

That dealer isn't too far from me and was one of the first dealers to have winter chill on the lot. I may have to go by there and take some pictures soon.

That would be awesome if you could take some pics! I'm thinking this will be a nice color for sure to see in person.

Its not too difficult to get web pages to reflect color accuracy... especially since they already have digital chips. The variation comes into play with different monitors. Your chip looks nothing like their web pages.

Something fishy going on with this color. The Pea Soup Green is fairly accurate. Time will tell who is wrong...

The fact is, I ordered a vehicle and my order sheet says "Sales Code PSC, Billet Silver Metallic Clear Coat". This is the same sales code as you can get on other Dodge/Jeep/Chrysler products. Chrysler would not produce 2 different colors under the same sales code. As KThrash said, if you want to see the color, go to your dealer. Also, if you had been reading, the Jeep website has 2 different pictures for the billet. There is a lighter one in the 2013 pictures, and a darker one if you build a 2013. So, I would not trust the website...bottom line, go look at the color in person...

Not to rehash this issue... the answer is no, but they would produce 2 different sales codes under the same color description, one for Jeep (PX8) the other for Chrysler / Dodge (PSC).

Like I said, time will tell.... according to Donlen the Jeep paint code is different now. This is why I wouldn't bet a paycheck on your assumption.



Chrysler Trucks (Production Updates)

Billet Metallic Clear Coat (PX8) - 09/04/12

Chrysler Cars (Production Updates)

Billet Metallic Clear Coat (PSC) - 10/01/12
