Ordered from Pat on 7-13.


WRANGLER RUBICON 4X4
Package: 24R Customer Preferred Package 24R
ERB 3.6L V6 24V VVT Engine
DGJ 5-Speed Auto W5A580 Transmission
Paint/Seat/Trim: PW7 Bright White Clear Coat
APA Monotone Paint
*A7 Cloth Seats w/Adj. Head Restraints
-XV Black/Dark Saddle
Options: MX3 Black 3-Piece Hard Top
GCD Deep Tint Sunscreen Windows
DMF 4.10 Rear Axle Ratio 95 85
CJ1 Supplemental Frt Seat Side Air Bags
AJP Power Convenience Group
AAJ Connectivity Group



Received first Jeep email on the 18th.

VOTS indicates Production Scheduled.

Called Jeep today 7-22 and they told me a VIN had been assigned on 7-19.
And that VOTS can take a while to show the update.
No production date yet and to call next weekend for an update.
They are super nice on the phone and seem eager to help.

Pat was right on with the VIN date, he told me I'd probably have it within 5 days of ordering. He was right on.

So don't hesitate to call the Jeep number- checking VOTS 10 times a day might not provide the latest info

Called and got similar information. I was excited that it showed up in VOTS so I called and got the VIN. She said to call back next Fri/Sat for an estimated ship date.

Hey Griffith, are you sure your order was placed? I was not aware the order banks were open for Billet yet. I too am waiting to order a Billet metallic! Looks like there will be a couple billets running around SW VA!

Mine did the same thing Dave. I never saw mine in "Paint" status at all and I was checking near 10 times a day. Went straight from "Frame" to "Trim" status.

Just received my vin and von from the dealership. Called their 1877 number and they stated an estimated ship date of Aug. 21st. I ordered on 7/13. Pretty excited right now, although still wondering if manual transmissions are still on restriction since the dealer said mid-September.

When you say ship date, you are referring to Rail (as in KZ M) ?

My ship date is 8/21 and according to estimated schedule Pat showed me it gets loaded on a rail car on 8/22 and makes its way to Benicia, CA on 8/30. I am not sure how long it takes to get from the CA rail yard to the dealer, but this is when I wish we had high speed bullet freight trains as 8 days on a rail car is more torture for me.

I checked VOTS
Mine is in paint this AM, I never saw it in frame, I don't know how often it gets updated, but it looks like I should have it in about two weeks

Mine is now in "Final Inspection" status. This is all going very fast. Should be on a truck within the next few days or so I assume.

They're inspecting mine too! I guess it's possible they could load it onto a train later in the week.

I'm guessing the train ride will take a couple weeks. Is there anyway to track railroad shipments?

I have no idea but I would imagine it would be fairly fast once it gets loaded. Within 2 or 3 days would be my guess that it would arrive at the dealership. Your Wrangler was going through the same time as mine. I'm assuming you ordered in early June as well?

Yeah well my order is put through, but they likely won't start building it until November. When do the colors release??? Because the guy here said i could get the Billet.

And yeah sadly about the SWVA, i will only be there for about 3 weeks in January and then heading up to Anchorage Alaska for my next assignment (USAF)

I may be soon joining this club. Been going back and forth between a 2 door Sahara and a Camaro SS and am leaning toward the Sahara. Odd comparison I know... this is my mid life crisis, discretionary vehicle purchase, so I wanted something different/fun. I'm afraid I would get bored with the Camaro as soon as the novelty of strong acceleration wears off. Plus it has no spare tire; how can anyone sell a car with no spare? It's not even an option!

Anyway, I'm considering a six speed manual Sahara but am still undecided on the axle ratio. I don't plan to put oversize tires on or tow anything with it. The general consensus from the discussions on here is that 3.73 is preferable to 3.21. Is there much of a mileage hit with the 3.73s?

Yes! The RR will assign a car number that the factory and your dealer should be able to track - ask them for this number and you will be able to track it also from the rail roads website. They note whenever the car passes through a particular siding name or yard which can sometimes have confusing names which are abbreviated but can be generally followed.

Sounds like what I ordered last June of '11 on my 2012, minus CJ1 Supplemental Frt Seat Side Air Bags.
Mine was MSRP $36,985, treadlightly discount brought the price down to about $34,200.... the drive out price was about $36,700 with tax, title, and doc fees already added.
Just curious, what is the MSRP and what do you expect to pay when you drive out.

My replacement shipped Monday to storage. I was told that may mean its waiting for a truck to fill. Dealer said I might have it by the end of the week or first of next week. I will be relieved to get back in the saddle, being without for two months after the dropped valve in the 2012.
I hope all the 2012 stuff I ordered will fit the 2013, I understand it shouldn't be a problem based on the mostly minor interior changes. Come on Truck... Show me the Jeep...

Waiting

Ordered our 2013 Sahara Jun. 10 at the dealer, order went in Jun 12, VIN received Jun 18th. Dealer says delivery anytime between Aug. 6th and 16th...

My order:

Deep Cherry Red
Max tow
Anti-spin diff.
side air bags
connectivity

Question: When I placed my order, I decided against dual top...went back to the dealer to mod. order...found out 3 weeks later that the order was D1 and could not be changed without reordering. Found a guy with a 2012 hard top...Will the 2012 hard top fit the 2013?

Probably an odd question, but I have not owned a jeep since high school (CJ7 Renegade)...

Just called Customer Service and was told that my production date had passed and I should not expect delivery until late September or October. YIKES! How is everyone else receiving confirmation?

Thanks. I would like to track it's journey. I'll call the 1-800 number once it's shipped and see if they have this info.
