so it was 17 days, from order placed to built...GREAT !

and now i'm at 9 days and counting on the shipment...not so great..

I had that happen with my GC two years ago. I called the dealer and they sent someone to the railyard to retrieve it. Might be worth a shot. They like to close sales at the end of the month to make quota.

THIS....


My Jeep was 3 days away from "scheduled delivery" sitting offloaded at the railyard, and it was a sunny Friday morning on what was going to be the year's first 70-degree day. I called my dealer and whined, and he called the driver at the railyard, and said if he only had to move 5 or 10 cars, he'd bring it...but if it was at the back of the lot, I'd have to wait.

I had it that afternoon!!

CALL HIM NOW!!

I actually really like this idea, never really dawned on me before. I'm always down for a good road trip and if it meant saving money and getting a Jeep at the same time, well, I can't think of much that's more worthy, well I can think of one thing....

My Billet Silver JKU Sahara has been "on-the-road" since last Friday. My dealership says it should arrive next Friday, possibly Thursday.

Ordered on 2/27.

Initial mods to be completed will be:

*Mopar stage 3 lift with Fox Shocks
*LT295/70R18 Nitto Trail Grapplers
*Fuel Off-Road 18x9 Octanes (Chrome)
*Smittybilt over-sized tire carrier.
*Procal Speedo & TPMS reprogram.
*Mastercraft grab handles.

Note:

Found out that I can't use the stock wheels with my new tires unless I use spacers, that's why I ordered the Octanes with proper backspacing and offset.

I am selling the brand new 7-spoke wheels and tires w/TPMS when it arrives if anyone knows a good place to post this info?
Update:

Dealership called today. My Billet Silver JKU Sahara arrived. YEEEEAH BOYYYYY.

I'll be driving it home tomorrow and my lift installation is scheduled for Monday. Wheels and tires by Wednesday. I'll post pictures when it's completed.

Sorry to hear that. I see yours has been so close for a while now. Mine literally took 13 days from ship date to delivery, but that was to the Florida Panhandle. Keep us updated?

yeah mine will be 17 days from factory to dealer...and i'm in Jersey..its about 500 miles.... yours was 13 days all the way down to the Gulf...
Its almost commical..mine was 17 days from order to built and loaded...AWESOME! then another 17 days to ship 500 miles ??... all in all i'm happy with the overall time, but....
i was on the phone with my dealership the other day when i was expecting it any minute and they called to tell me another week... i told them that if i wasn't update by the Chrysler emails..i'd be none the wiser and if i didn't know where it was i wouldn't be so bummed..but when i get an update saying it will be off loaded at a rail yard 30 miles from my dealer, on the 22nd..and then the dealer calls and says it'll be here 4/3 ? ?

I got the side rails off eBay. The install was fairly easy with an extra set of hands. I love them though.

Well, my Billet 10A finally KZed at 3:30am today. Now for the hardest part, waiting for shipment.

Should be relatively quick compared to the wait for it to be built. WOO HOO!

Congratulations! I received my first email from VOTS two days after my order was placed. Four weeks later my Jeep was delivered (I'm in MA).

Add one to the Billet Brigade (or whatever this group shall be called).

I ordered today.

Lots of Billet JKs on lots within 200 miles, but none like I wanted.

Rubicon 6MT w/tow, extra airbags, buttons on the steering wheel

At the last minute, I added the fancier radio, but not the really nice one, just to get the screen. I never had one of those.

Pretty good deal.

I figure it'll be here by Memorial Day if I'm lucky. If not, oh well.

I got my Billet last week and I love it. I got it with the painted top and fenders and have gotten a lot of compliments on it. If it weren't for this thread, I probably would've gotten black, but seeing the pics changed my mind. I actually don't think there is Wrangler color that i don't like, but the Billet is definitely my favorite. Thanks guys.

Final Update:

Better late than never! Mopar Stage 3 Lift with Fox Shocks, wheels/tires installed last week. Finally got to drive it on our local beaches the other day. Here are the before and after pics. See you in the other forums! Have fun everyone!

OK OK OK...so I'll post up a pic tonight. Took the long way home and tripled + the mileage on it. Loving it so far! The wife and daughter seem to be happy now that I can stop talking about it...except that now it changes from the Jeep to MODS! Roof/ doors off this weekend. ACE rails on and SpiderwebShade on. Got a couple more that will have to wait.

FYI - Ordered 3/4, picked up 4/10

I picked mine up last night, then picked up two BIG ASS rock chips in my windshield on the way to work today. Go figure...

So, plan to get that "fixed" tomorrow as well as hopefully get the new tires/wheels put on.
