I got the "production scheduled" email this morning. How long are you guys seeing that it took to ship/arrive at the dealer after this?

Delivery was scheduled for Wednesday but I talked to the dealer this morning, he said it's now suppose to get in tonight between 8pm and 3am. Should be able to pick it up tomorrow or at worst, Wednesday!

Mine is at a rail yard somewhere in my state (SC) anyone know if there's a main rail yard?

I searched around a bit and the Dixiana, SC rail yard came up a few times. If so, then that means my jeep is about 1.5 hours away.

According to I AM JEEP this morning, I should see my rubicon at the end of this week, for sure next weekend. Why so long?

I'm beginning to think they shake a Magic 8-ball for an answer when we call for status updates.
The last email from VOTS said I would ship 3/4...but then the dealer said might take an extra day. Here I've been thinking it would be here any minute now, and the dealer called over the weekend saying it JUST left Toledo! WTH? Then I get a call from my salesman this morning with an update, and it's in the railyard in Nashville, about 3 hours away...
BUT they're still saying it won't be here for 2 more days, and delivered to the dealer THREE days from now.

The emails have come through fine for me luckily enough. I waited a week after my "your jeep is shipped" email to see where it could be and this is how I found out it's in my state.

Hopefully it won't be much longer for me.

Good luck manyskilz

A lot of the time lag between the railyard and dealer is due to the railroad. They transport for all makes, Ford Chevrolet, etc to the same yards. Once the train sets out the block of cars for the particular depot, which takes time, That block of cars has to wait it's turn to be offloaded. When the block with your order is up, they unload and stage the entire block of cars according to destination dealers and the truck it will load onto. The truck isn't notified of the staged load until it is completely in place and ready to load. Then after the truck arrives and loads, it may make multiple stops at multiple dealers which is all very time consuming as each vehicle must be inspected and checked in before the drivers paperwork is signed off.

Usually the trip from the rail yard to dealer is the most agonizing for those of us who are waiting.

Smile Sweeeeeeeeeeeet Capt

Sweeeeeeeeeeeet 911, mine is getting about 4" on Thursday and will make a run with the bigs Friday or Saturday morning to see how it works. I'm having to cut the AEV rockrails to make a little extra room since I'm running a big ole 35" Goodyear MTRs.

Yours and mine must be on the same shipment. Mine is supposed to be delivered to the dealer in Gastonia on the 18th, I think mine was heaeded to a rail transfer point in Winston Sale. I wouldnt be surprised if yours isn't on the train from Teledo.

Ha, nice!

Yeah, our jeeps prob rode the same train down here. I think from the main rail yard though, according to someone on here, they're sent by truck to the dealerships. That sucks if you have to have yours get on another train. Next Monday will be 3.5 weeks since I ordered it so I'm definitely in the luckier group that hasn't had to wait that long for news.

Howdy everyone!! Well my Jeep is getting her first bath today (Mandatory she is clean before the lift/winch/and long arm goes on) so we will see how she takes it. Thus far she has been way more than expected and everyone loves the saddle interior.

Ordered billet silver jku about 5:00 on 3-4. Got the order confirmation email 3-6. I then got an email on 3-8 saying production was scheduled in about a week. The wife then decided she liked commando green a little better after seeing one in person. Called the dealer Saturday (3-9) to change the color and he looked it up and said it has already been built and is scheduled to ship 3-14. He says its the fastest he has ever seen one built. Now the really agonizing wait begins.

yup. i got connectivity and the sahara has premium sound standard. it's good for what I want it for, and I'd rather not hack into the wiring to be able to use the steering wheel controls.
