FDA, mine showed an ETA of 9/21, which came and went with nothing and still showing "Staged for Shipment". Then the next day, it changed to On Truck, because it was shipped truck direct due to being close to the plant. It arrived on 9/24.

Also, for the record, the Jeep is still showing on the truck in Insight. Despite the fact it's been in my garage for a week now...

Little different VOTS/Insight story: ordered on 9/14, initially had trouble communicating w dealer to get VIN/Tracking #, when I finally did, logged onto both and was in D1 and future estimated on railcar on 10/9 and railcar unload 10/18. If I check on the sites right now, that is still the status, except I just got a call from the dealer and they said my Jeep is on the train in Wyoming and will be here in a couple days!

I'm curious to match VIN numbers when I see it b/c I wonder if they found another lot that matched my specs and grabbed that one for me since VOTS says it's not even in Frame yet & Insight still says things are a couple weeks off... If they did, great job Ken Garff Jeep!! Looks like I may be in a JKUR by the weekend, probably before the parts I ordered yesterday to be here 'early' will even get here!

Another vote here for the unlimited warranty. Hopefully I'll get my $ worth. Or better yet, not need it. This is the Mopar lifetime bumper to bumper warranty. The brochure I received says it extends and protects all non-wear items from failure for as long as I or a "descendent" (so son, but not brother) own the Jeep. With all the elec stuff and Rubi parts I figured it was worth it. I looked hard but could not find a place that it said a part would not be covered because it outlived its "lifespan." So I intend to never pay for a tie rod end, brake caliper, spark plug/wire, exhaust, radio, window/wiper motor, A/C compressor, steering rack, etc.

Has anyone else taken this warranty, and do you have same understanding? It was $2200 so will kill it PDQ via Amex if I'm wrong on my assumptions!

Just checked Insight this morning. I have been in D1 for two weeks and finally had a new line entered.

The new line says" Reset customer comment 10/1 9:48 pm"
Still has load on rail car 10/5. But does anybody have any idea what this means?

At 0832 hrs, the "Your Jeep is beginning build..." email hit my inbox this morning! VOTS now shows me in Paint status, but INSIGHT still only says D1.

Either way, Woohoo!

Thanks Paleh0rse - Got my full VIN and have estimated ship date of about two weeks. Another question: From where do I order the coupon for the $500?

Sorry to be such a rookie - I appreciate your help!

Go to Jeep.com and request a wrangler brochure by mail. It will be attached...maybe, you might get another offer like credit card.

No worries, I think most of us are rookies when it comes to ordering a Jeep. I can't really help you with the coupon, though, but I think it's somewhere in the "Research" section of the official Wrangler website at Jeep.com.

Maybe someone else can hook you with a link?

Awesome...sounds exactly like my build progress. It took about 2ish weeks from that point to hit the lot, so hopefully yours is about the same.

That is awesome, indeed! I just got off the phone with Jason at KOR, so he's on standby with my $4800 parts order -- he's just waiting for me to call back with my CC and shipping info.

I also spoke to Freaky Tree this morning to get get a quote on the welding work (Artec front lowers/gussets, and the RK rear trackbar bracket).

Good times ahead!

So, I picked up my Gecko 2-door last night (yea!) but can't figure out how to work the dang a/c (boo!). I am not usually technically challenged. I have my phone and iPad paired with Bluetooth, listening to streaming music, but sweating because it is over 90 here. Read the manual. Basically, my understanding is you turn the knobs to adjust blower, temp, and mode, and push the button in for a/c. Not exactly rocket sience. But nothing is coming out of the vents. Worked fine last night on the way home from the dealer.

Anyone have the magic fix for me?

I don't know how to fix it, but when I test drove a new JK last month it did something similar. The saleswoman turned on the AC and showed me around the Jeep (like I had never seen one before -- her job, so I didn't complain) and when I shut the Jeep off and turned it back on, the AC acted weird when I turned it back on. I had to push the button and turn the knob, then suddently it just kicked on...was weird.

My ETA to the dealer is 10/09/2013. How close are deliveries generally being made to the Estimated ETA. My Jeep is still showing Staged for Shipment.

Did anyone else get the deer in the headlights look when you mentioned tread lightly discount? I was at one of the many local dealers and we were talking numbers on my trade and then they put together some figures and when I mentioned tread lightly I had to show them the website and then they were very how do I say this? .... Unwilling to deal and then they re worked the numbers with the 1% under invoice and then dropped a couple grand off my trade and then the FNG salesman says to me... The money has to come from somewhere , .... Lol ... I'm not making up the difference on a deal offered through Chrysler. ..... On to another dealer ... I'm shocked at some dealers.

At last!

Having ordered my JK 2-door Sport, 6-speed, Deep Cherry Red, with towing, connectivity and side air-bags on July 6th (my first Jeep), it finally arrived at my dealer today and I'm hoping to pick it up tomorrow (if I can manage to leave work a bit early, or by salesman will stay a bit late). Its been a long, long wait: 12.5 weeks (so quit complainin' about your wait )! Order process is not so friendly to us Canadians, I guess . While this forum has made the wait seem even longer (especially as the pictures started coming in and so many others received their Jeeps before I did), its been absolutely great getting to know all of you Jeep enthusiasts !

The good news is that we've got a long weekend here this weekend! Canadian Thanksgiving, or as we like to call it, "Thanksgiving" . And it looks beautiful. The maples are in full radiance. Looking forward to driving some of the backroads of Southern Ontario. Now all I need is some way to explain my extended disappearance to the family (perhaps a note on the fridge: "Gone Jeeping. -Dad"? ), and put together a good play list of Jeep drivin' tunes (suggestions?).

Happy trails to all!

-Stefan

P.S. Sorry about the excessive emoticons (), I'm just so happy to finally, finally get to drive my Jeep ()!

Ok, some of you may remember way back when (this morning) I received notice that my new JKUR was in Paint status.

Well, just for the hell of it, I decided to check INSIGHT and stare at that status one more time before going to bed... and, low and behold, it now says "STAGED FOR SHIPMENT, ETA TO DEALERSHIP 10/15"!!

The darn thing went from D1 to "Staged For Shipment" in one frickin' day!! This is nuts... I'm on cloud nine!!

I better hurry up and order all my mods already...

goodnight everyone!
