I was told mine would be there sometime tomorrow, but they can't give me a specific time. Really hoping to get it tomorrow since they are calling for a plowable snow Sat. and that would prevent the 4 hour round trip to pick it up.

Can someone educate me on the order/ build process? Do I go to the dealership create an itemized order of exactly what I want and then negotiate a price? Then upon agreement does the dealership send the order to Jeep HQ to be fulfilled? Is it more difficult to bargain with a custom build vs what is already on the lot? I plan to pay cash upfront, I hear there is no negotiating power with cash so to keep it out of the conversation until the out the door price is determined.

My possible future order:
2013 JKU Sport S
Manual
3 piece hard top
Alpine stereo
Connectivity group

Negotiate before you order. And if you are in the US cash works.

What I did is contacted dealers around me 4 of them and asked them to give me a quote for what I wanted. They all came back with prices. Most MSRP. Then I started negotiating from there. Told them I knew they could do better. I also had a company discount which didn't hurt. I used the dealers against each other to get the lowest possible price and after my wife and I where happy with price, we ordered. I was able to get 4.5% below invoice. So it worked out.

One dealer went ahead and ordered a jeep anyways while I was still looking for the best price. I guess he though if the jeep arrived I would pick it up. He didn't give me the best price so that jeep is still on the lot.

Then they place the order, give you a VIN number and you wait.

When the jeep comes in, price was negotiated so you just sign the papers and drive away with your new jeep. I wasn't in a rush, and I told the dealers what I was doing.

Really hoping to get mine too. I have an open window where I can knock off work a few hours to take care of the paperwork. Sucks when you expect a phone call or an email that doesn't come.

Mine is scheduled for delivery to my dealer at 3:41 pm. I thought it was strange to have such a weird delivery time and so specific bs just saying late afternoon or something.

Definitely odd! Is that time from IAMJEEP ? I called and all of sudden they had no info and told me to contact my dealer. I really think it depends on who you get. Some will actually look and some will lip service.

Yeah my first couple calls the women all went further into detail than I expected. My last call, the one where they said it was pushed back was a guy, and he sure seemed like he just wanted to get me off the phone.

4 weeks is still an acceptable timeframe for me, but telling me it would be here on a certain date and then having to wait another week is a buzzkill. Already unloaded my car last week so this 1 car family thing is starting to take some clever planning.

I got a mix. When I called, some regurgitated the same info I had in VOTS, well gee thanks. Those are the ones that didn't want to be bothered. Then some others gave more info than expected and were really nice.

Obviously we didn't get our call. Lets hope for tomorrow! I would even settle for a Saturday pick up. Keep the fingers crossed.

Sweet! Make sure you get on board with the affiliate program to save more. Your employer may even be on the list.

Do a search on Chrysler affiliate program there are literally hundreds of companies that participate. If you don't work for one of them, do the easy thing and join Tread Lightly. 3 years, $60. In return, it's basically offering you 1% below invoice. Almost no haggling. Many on the board have gotten deals even below that. If you live where I do, all the Dealers have been stingy and won't budge beyond 1%. Still decent though and far better than MSRP. Good luck and let us know how you make out!

Nope. My dealer looked up his tracking and it had a timeline for everything like what time it was coming off railcar, what time it would be loaded on a transport etc... He showed me his tracking screen and it was totally different than any other one I've seen. I highly doubt the times are that dialed in. I guess if I drive by the dealer at 3:41 tomorrow and the truck is there I will know how accurate they are.

So out of curiosity and mostly out of boredom in the waiting, I just checked my Dealer's inventory. Yesterday it still showed up as "in transit" and I was even able to pull up the window sticker. However, this morning, it's no longer there....

Your dealership might pull down the sold orders from their inventory list. This way they don't get calls to look at Jeeps that aren't available.

Grrrr. I've been delayed a week. Now it's 01/04. This may have financial implications which may cost me more $$

And to add to insult, I emailed my sales Rep to see if he had any updates, since he said it was today, he replied "call the General Sales Mgr., I'm with a customer"

Nice....

I called the dealer. As BlackHills said, they have a system that can track it. I hope you get better news!

Well mine was supposed to ship on 12/22, arrive in my city by rail 12/27 and be off loaded today, 12/28. It was expected to be at the dealer next Wednesday. I called IAMJEEP twice today and nobody knows where it is. The last record shows it was sitting in inspection on 12/21.

My guess is the storm last week caused a delay which prevented my Jeep from being loaded on the rail before the holiday break. I suspect it is just sitting in Toledo waiting for the holiday shutdown to finish.

^ This. I think the storm had something to do with it. I originally had 12/28 and yesterday iamjeep had nothing.

Today dealer said a hold was lifted at the rail and now 01/04.

Well, progress is being made on my 12/11 order:

It was in Shipment on 12/24. Now, checking today -- 4 days later -- I get two different dates for delivery: IAMJEEP says Jan 2, while my dealer shows a date of 12/31. It's not a huge difference, I realize but, hey, I'm anxious.

Any idea which of these two sources tends to be more accurate?
