I called IAMJEEP the other day and was told my Jeep was in the "Shipping Process". I asked if she checked Insight and she told me that her system only tells her the build process and that once it goes to shipping they can't track it.

Ontario as well !! ordered 9/14...my dealer told me 8 to 12 weeks when I signed !! I can live with that...some Canadians on here ordered in mid to late August and have not received their Jeeps yet....mine is still not scheduled for production yet, But don't let that stop you...I wanted a jeep for twenty years,they are finally to my liking all the new changes are awesome....a few months is nothing....i will get it, that I know for sure !!!
Good luck !!

Unhappy

Day 4 of "Paint" status... The last email I got said:

"Your new Jeep is beginning build! Your vehicle can be anticipated to progress rapidly through the next few stages of production. Be sure to login to the Vehicle Order Tracking System (VOTS) for daily updates."

So much for "rapidly" and "daily updates"...

IAMJEEP is still clueless and doesn't have any additional info (one woman actually said I was still showing as "scheduled for production").

I have to say with their current tracking system technology Chrysler is striving boldly into the '90s...

VOTS only seemed to only update once a week for me. Odds are that your Jeep was already built by the time you got that email. Mine was in my driveway before VOTS showed that it was shipping.

Well it would be useful to know ahead of time since I need to transfer money and cut a check, tell the insurance folks the full VIN, etc...

So I called IAMJEEP today, and was again told the current status in the only system she had access to was "scheduled for production". Also, she said the projected railcar load date was now 10/29 (had been 10/24 with local delivery 10/29). Gaaaahhh!!!!!

I don't know about truck-shipped Jeeps but they CAN track railcar shipments. I have tracked mine across the US from Bryan Ohio to Cheyenne Wy. to the West Coast and it's here today waiting to be offloaded and then by car carrier to the dealer. IAM has several different systems they can check. Try another person there if they won't check all of them.

Ordered October 1st in Canada and dealer emailed me stating they got the VIN # on the 24th. Fingers crossed it goes into production in less time than it took to get the VIN.

Just for fun, here are some pics of a stretched JK gassing up in Detroit. It has manufacturers plates, and is reported to be called the JK six pack for its 3rd row of seats.

Jeep Owner Again

I picked up my JKU Rubicon tonight. Flawless transaction and my dealer honored both the military and college grad/enrolled $500 each rebates along with my Tread Lightly discount. Lift kit going on tomorrow followed by tires purchased from DTD that are due to arrive Mon. Before and after pics to follow.

My Jeep has been sitting at a rail yard in Jessup, MD for a week. Now 'Sandy' is going to keep it there for awhile longer. Was told by the dealership that the trucking company can not get insured to bring a load of vehicles till after the storme. So, I am still hanging out here in the waiting room. Atleast I will find out if the freedom top leaks..

Well, I ordered mine just a few weeks ago, and the dealer called me this morning to tell us it arrived! Sad part is I have to work today! :>(
So we scheduled delivery for monday morning.
BTW Our sales guy said he just had another couple show up to order their jeep in "Crush"......which is no longer available! Whew, that was close!

If I can access the window sticker, does that mean it is built, or does it mean it is built and in transit? I can access it. I've been sitting in final inspection on VOTS for the last several days. The optimistic side of me hopes VOTS is behind, and my Jeep is en route. The pessimistic side of me says it is built and sitting around waiting to be loaded.

Checked my window sticker (thanks msaniac) and found $185 in MSRP increases. Three piece top and destination charge are the two biggies. Just waiting for car carrier to take the car to the dealer so we can take it home (goodies await).

Last year when I ordered my GMC, the dealer told me that after the third day sitting in the rail yard, the dealer is allowed to call the rail yard and have the unit marked as "hot" for a priority delivery. That was for the Twin Oaks rail yard in PA. Twin Oaks handles all brands of vehicles so it wasn't just a GM thing. I don't know if the same rule applies elsewhere.

I was of the understanding that Jeep didn't have a "College Grad" program, whats up? I'd love to save few extra $$$

I called Jeep last month to review available incentives and the rep told me there was a college grad rebate available until the end of the month and that they would honor it since I had a rig on order. I found the coupon online at the same page with the military rebate and printed the page that day. The dealer did question it at first but went ahead and honored it, which didn't surprise me as Brewbaker Motors has been great to do business with.

Our dealer says our 2 door dozer rubicon should be here tomorrow. It is a grad school graduation present for my incredible wife. I can't wait to see her eyes light up when she sees it for the first time. This is a well deserved present after a difficult 2.5 year journey.
