My local dealer is telling my JKUR will be here either Feb 25th or 26th. IAMJEEP is telling me March 1st. Jeep notified me via e-mail on Feb 15th the build was complete.

My Jeep left the rail yard this morning and should be at the dealer this afternoon. Any ideas on a reasonable time frame to have plates on it and ready to pick up. This is my first experience with a ordered Jeep.

My dealer just told me that my Jeep is built and being shipped (: It could be 2 days, or up to 10. Either way, I'm psyched....BTW - VOTS has been useless.

My Jeep arrived !! I flew home from Tampa and blew off a spring training game in Clearwater (PHILS). Picked her up last night, and she is a beauty, I think I'll name her Ginger Lynn!

Finally got some word from my dealership yesterday. Told me estimated ship date is the 28th of this month and should be at the dealership between the 7th and 11th of next month. If things go smoothly I should have my jeep in a couple weeks.

Up to this point vots and IAMJEEP has been worthless. Every person I talked to on there refered me to the vots system and gave me no additonal information.

Artax, I agree for the most part about VOTS and I AM JEEP. I did have a really nice girl last Monday though, she told me the arrival date of my Jeep is betthe 27th and 6th of March. Some are good most are not but in the end I will be happy when she arrives.

VOTS was useless for me too, it only updated once after I called IAMJEEP. When I did call IAMJEEP, I had a very good experience, they put me on hold a couple of times to look up the info, but I didn't mind because they were very polite and gave me detailed info when they came back on the phone. I would guess it is like most Customer Support lines, you get good CSR's and not so good ones. I have to admit, some of you guys have had very long waits, I know it is tough when you are excited about a major purchase to wait so long and have trouble getting information. Hopefully your new rides will show up soon.

Stopped by my dealer this afternoon to work on the trade-in value of my current 2002 Honda Accord.

He let me know my JKUR passed through Vaughn, NM last night and is expected in the Phoenix rail yard by Tuesday. The salesmen is hoping to get it to me on Wednesday so it counts towards his February sales numbers.

Placed my order on 2/8 & got the production scheduled email on 2/11. I contacted Jeep a couple time since then & they told me that production on my Jeep wouldn't begin until sometime in March but when I woke up today I saw an update that says it's in the shipment stage.

I spoke to 2 dealers on Saturday.. told them i wanted to order a Sahara 2dr...told them the options i wanted.. they both said they would run a Mock order for me on Monday and get back to me with their price quote.

One of the dealers just called me back said that the FACTORY IS NOT BUILDING RIGHT NOW?? said that both transmissions were on an order hold..
then he offered to try to lacate something for me...
I think this might be B.S. and he's just trying to get me to settle on something he has or can bring in from another lot....
any thoughts??

I heard of the Auto being on hold due to the 2014 Grand Cherokee but mine went trough production without a hitch. They should still be able to order one and you can work out a price. The real question is do you want to wait and get every option you want, or have them locate one that may only have "most" of the options you want.

Hey KO...Congrats! I ordered on 2/11, so I can't be too far behind you! What was your VIN? I'm at DL629xxx....
I ordered 2/11, got the welcome email 2/12 which had a prod sched status then, and got the official production scheduled email today.

What did you order?

Well ladies and gents, it looks like borrowing a hold up with Trim and inspection (Archer) my Jeep should be hitting the railyard in the next day or two.

Argh!! I work for a large copper and gold mining company on the IT side. I was supposed to go out of town today for a business trip to Bagdad, AZ but it was pushed back to Wednesday.

I want to take ownership of my vehicle during daylight hours so I can visually inspect it, so looks like I have to wait to Thursday now. This wait is killing me knowing my jeep is probably in Arizona on a rail car now.

I'm so excited for you guys!

I just called my dealer- they've moved my ship date up to 3/4, so he says I should have it by 3/11...unless it gets stuck in a rail yard over the weekend!

Congrats Duck!


I however just got a setback my jeep was supposed to be delivered in the next 2 days now they are saying the 4th of march! How can something so common as shipping be so unreliable for dates? Yet customer service has no idea where on the way to Orlando my jeep is, worst tracking system ever!

Well I've been lurking for a while so I thought it was time to post.

The wife and I ordered her a '13 JKU Sahara in Rock Lobster on 1/22. VOTS was ticking through the steps for a long while but has now been stuck in Final Inspection for the last week and a half at least. I called IAMJEEP a couple of times and the first time they told me that it was expected in the rail yard on 2/17...well, that didn't happen so I'm fixin' to call again.

Has anyone else experienced their Final Inspection lasting so long???

John

it sounds like yours was pulled for audit, which is a longer inspection process. Not sure on the full details or how long that can take. Archer can help (i think), and im sure he will chime in.

Pandemic, I am in the exact same situation for my shipment, now stating it will be delayed till the 4th of March instead of dealer delivery on the 26th of February. Sorry for the RANT but I'm really frustrated with VOTS. I know, I know, it is not the most up to date or reliable source of information but you want to at least believe what it tells you. Over a week ago I received the e-mail from VOTS telling me that my Jeep was shipped. I called today to find out it just today made the rail car, another week to my State and another week after that to make it to my Dealer. Grrrrrrr....

No fee for ordering but did leave a check to get 01 status on my build.

Thank you all for the warm thoughts. Can't wait till I post the pics, already have the winch, lift, limb risers, and a few other things on order to include a Stubby Antenna from AntennaX

Thanks for the info...I'll ping ArcherAce and see if he can help me out.

On the bright side, the longer it takes the warmer my garage is getting! I've got big plans for a weekend install of the lift/tires/rims.

Mike...there should be no fee to order...but it would be reasonable if they ask for a deposit...even a non-refundable deposit...
