OK .... Litterely just off the phone from the Jeep number.
They said 2012's are STILL being built.
The 2013's start on July 23rd
They take anywhere from 24 to 48 hours to build one complete Jeep. Then 1 day in the Inspection area.
They had mine as being done on 8/2 and loaded on
Rail Car on 8/6. They said it would be at Dealer by 8/10.
Again .... These are all ESTIMATED and they said to call next week for an update.

Welp, ordered mine today:

Wrangler Unlimited Sport S, Deep Cherry Red
5-speed auto
3.73
Anti-spin differential
Connectivity
Premium soft top
Alpine audio system

Was a little annoyed that I couldn't get the power convenience group on an Unlimited w/o ordering the Sport 'S' package, but oh well.

Now the wait!

Sounds right. I picked up my 2012 last week and it was built only 2 weeks ago, so getting close...

Just ordered my Sport S JKU thanks to all the info and help from this board, I knew more than the dealer. I just walked in with my ipad and the spreadsheet from the 2013 info thread. Handed it over, mentioned I'd be using tread lightly and 30 minutes later my jeep was ordered. Here are my specs

JKU Sport S
Black
dual top
anti spin differential
Max tow
Alpine sound
Connectivity group
3.73 gear
Black appearance group

Next up...black wheels, tires, safari rack

Thanks again to everyone here for the invaluable info.

That's great. I called Chrysler CS for the first time today. I ordered mine on June 11th but understand as a 2013 it wasn't due to be built until late in July. They bumped my ship date up to July 26th. That means I am probably one of the first that week to be built or pretty close to it. Hope they are awake and ready to work on Monday. No hangovers allowed

Anyhow based on everyone else's shipping estimates the Jeep should be to the dealer the week of August 6th. I'll take some pictures and post em up as soon as I pick it up so others can enjoy some Jeep porn.

I ordered a Gecko Green JKUR with cloth seats (thank god) and some other stuff. Going to take all of my 2012 mod's off over a weekend and transfer them to the new Jeep including my brand new 37 Nitto Trail Grapplers. Can't wait baby!

I'd like that upgraded TPMS system that lets you monitor all 4 tire pressures at once. I wonder if there will be any way to add that to an older model.

Just ordered mine today through Dick Scott Motor Mall in Fowlerville, Michigan - they've been great! I've wasted so much of their time trying to do dealer trades for remaining 2012 models before finally ordering my 2013. So without further ado...

JKJS72 Wrangler Rubicon 2-DR ... $30,495
23R Customer Preferred Package
DEH 6-Speed Manual NSG370 Transmission
PX8 Black Clear Coat
*A7 Cloth Seats
-X9 Black
CWA Mopar Slush Mats ... $75
AEM Dual Top Group ... $2085
GCD Deep Tint Sunscreen Windows ... $300
AJP Power Convience Group ... $795
AAJ Connectivity Group ... $485
AHT Trailer Tow Group ... $295
JPM Heated Front Seats ... $250

Destination Fee ... $925

Dealer-installed two-tone (001 Black and 088 Earth) leather ... $1050

Subtotal ... $36,755 (sales tax is additional 6% in Michigan)

---

So, a few parting thoughts here:

1) First of all... $925 shipping anywhere in the continental U.S.? C'mon, Toledo isn't even 100 miles away!

2) I really wanted a medium-to-dark green, to resemble forest camoflauge. I found a 2012 Wrangler in Black Forest Green (no easy task, since the Rubicon with a 6-speed was an absolute requirement for me...), and it looked almost black to me - a far cry from something like the Natural Green I had in mind. I wasn't so sure I'd like Commando, so I figured I'd just go with black. With the dark rims and black fenders and top, I figured it would look... stealthy? It was either that or bright white, which would make a nice contrast (and serve as snow camoflauge), but ultimately I preferred the all-black.

3) I took a chance ordering the custom leather interior sight-unseen - it's a dealer-installed aftermarket option (not Katzkin, but a different brand). He said most people who have gotten it prefer it to the factory leather, and the price was about the same ($1050 vs. $1100 from Chrysler), plus it's customized. I think the "Earth" brown center will give it a rugged look, and the black edges will nicely match the rest of the cabin.

So, as you all can see, I'm really excited! I've just finished grad school, and this is my first new car. It cost a bit too much, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it for a long time! Any thoughts on the price? These guys have been really helpful, and I don't want to lowball them, but I've got to think of myself too. Maybe if I pay MSRP, I can negotiate more for my trade-in?

First post alert! I just ordered my first Jeep on 7/14 and received my first build email from Jeep on 7/18. Here are the details:

2013 Rubicon Unlimited, White
Cloth Seats - opted for cloth due to the North Texas Heat and inevitable rain showers when I have the top off. Sounds like I might have gotten lucky not going with leather due to the delays..
Max Tow
Body color fenders & hard top
730n media center
connectivity group
heated front seats
A/C with auto temp

The guys at the dealership weren't too knowledgeable about the 2013 changes/options, so i hope I didn't miss anything important - probably too late now to add anyway.

Thank you all for the informative posts. I have been reading through this forum like crazy to get ideas for everything from lifting & storing the hard top to storage to accessories. Your efforts/comments/insights are very appreciated! Thank you!

I can tell this is going to be a very long wait. The week since placing the order feels like a month...

I just called the customer call number and was told that the only information that shows in the system is that mine was scheduled for production July 17th. I was quite surprised by that. I then said that would mean that it should already be built. She did not know if in fact that it was since the only information showed the build date of 07-17. She encouraged me to call back often for any updates. I hesitated to call because I did not want to be a pest. It seems that they don't mind and repeated that I should call back. They were very friendly. I placed my order June 9th for a 2013 2 dr Sport, Gecko 6 speed. VOTS only shows "scheduled for production." My dealer called me yesterday and said the ship date should be Aug 10th.

Let's see now;
Lift ordered
Wheels Ordered
Tires ordered
Vanity plate received already
Floor liners received already
Silly childish stickers received already (wife's comment)
Door sill protector received already

I think I'm ready!

Don't mean to worry you but I read someplace that there were concerns that lifts for 2012 might not fit the 2013s. I think they were talking AEP lifts I believe but a change is a change! Hoping for the best for you.

I sure hope not. I guess I'll have to just deal with what happens. I have a 3" Zone lift coming. Sure hope all goes well. I did not see in any info brought out yet that the suspension might change. They can change that goofy exhaust loop if they want.

I don't think there were really any details in the conversation I read. I seem to recall that is was info from AEP saying that there were changes and they were not sure how it was going to affect their lift. I can't believe there would be many changes like this is a year with just minor upgrades.

Add mine to the order que as of 7-18:

JK Unlimited Rubicon dark cherry red
automatic
dual top
max tow
side airbags
Uconnect
430N

I left the dealer with the VON.

I have a question: Does the 430N require the more expensive Uconnect (mine speced with the more expensive option). I have a feeling no one at the dealership actually knew the answer.
