I'm in Canada, ordered 7/24. Still don't have my Jeep. But I ordered Commando Green and they didn't start building until late August. So it has been over 3 months but I think mine is an extreme.

Dealer is definitely trying to push you into something on the lot. Mine did too.

He just emailed me asking if I was ready to go forward with the Green one on his lot I have told him 4 times now that I am not getting a color I dont want just so he can make more money, I think it is time for me to find a new Dealer

I had dealers saying all kinds of bs. At the start of August when i started going to dealers I was told a 2013 order wouldn't come until the new year.. Jan at the earliest. Was also pushed hard on the '12's everywhere I went. Until I spoke with a friend that happened to know a manager at a dealer outside the city. I've never even been there and completed the order over the phone.. there are good dealers out there, just few and far between. Ordered mid august and it's now built and on it's way here.

I agree with MacGruber, had a dealer email me nearly threatening that a 2013 order wouldn't even begin to be built until Jan 2013 - ordered in Oct!! So, I went elsewhere, didn't even bother responding to the guy's email but I think I iwll send him a photo when my jeep comes in. They just want to offload their current inventory...resorting to fear mongering

Just spoke to IAMJEEP who said my jeep left the plant on a truck to Fields at 2:00 today. I guess I will find out if there are any leaks as I imagine it will be a wet ride. Hopefully the truck is running duratracs.

This is killing me! Worst decision I have ever made was coming to this thread and seeing others get their jeep!

Mine left factory on 10/18. saying estimated delivery to dealer is Nov 5. Wish they could give me more accurate info! Guess I just have 6 days left....

My dealer has no clue about this ordering deal. Apparently they don't have to do it much bc they are a pretty large dealer. Anyways, I put in an order 2 weeks ago for a Black JKUR with saddle leather. They called back the next day and said it would be after 11/1 before they could order it bc the saddle leather was on backorder. Over the last 2 weeks I have been thinking about changing the color. I called just now to change my color to True Blue and was told the Jeep is already in production. He said it was in Production B? Or maybe Production D? I have no idea. What info do I need to track my Jeep and where can I track it?

Hi All....

Our Sahara Crush was built on our Anniversary (Oct 23), and arrived at the dealer Oct 26! Talk about a speedy delivery!

My New Bumper Is Here!

My winch bumper arrived today!

Now if I can just get the Jeep to arrive too. My small town dealer is installing Mopar stage 3 lift, and I suspect they are not exactly familiar with the installation. Maybe tomorrow I will actually get to see the Jeep.

I ordered my jeep last week and have a Von but it tells me when I put it in and it says last name or number incorrect. Salesman told me it has not passed audit yet to be considered for build. I have not heard that one.

Thanks in advance and this is the best forum I have been a part of tons of great information
If I may suggest, don't work with one dealer, work with them all. Go to the Jeep web site, build one, then check dealer inventory for as far as you are willing to drive to pick it up. Open up a web page/tab for each unit your are interested in so you know what is where. Send a message to each dealer with what you are looking for, but don't be too specific (e.g., if you want black, say you'd go with black, dark blue or dark green). Then you can start working with their intranet sales department who are more willing to deal than the guys on the showroom floor.

They will try to tell you they won't negotiate on the phone, but they will if they know you are talking with other dealers. The only configuration I could not find was a red JKU. I got every feature I absolutely wanted. I would have liked side airbags, but would have had to get the dual top group. I ended up getting 7.1% off sticker and had no wait.

I am going to have to extend my search as I have found out all the Jeep dealerships with in a 100 mile radius of me are the same company I thought I found a dealership to work with until they started trying to sell me the same jeep as the other one. I am going to use your method of emailing a bunch of jeeps within 5 hours of me and see if I can find a dealer that will find what I want and make me a good deal on it. Thanks for everyones input without a doubt the most helpful forum there is.

OMG. Mine was supposed to be delivered to the dealer last night but didn't show up. IAM says delivery is just an estimate but car has supposedly been off the railcar for several days. They have no updated ETA. I think this is the hardest part when they tell you the car is in the city train yard a few miles from the dealer who says delay could be weather (rain???) or "other issues" for trucking company. . For what it's worth, I understand that the dealer can issue a "hot ticket" to speed things up after a period of delay. Other posters said that got things done promptly afterwards.

That seems strange. The cutoff for ordering Crush was early October. I know a friend who ordered a Crush JKUR on 10/1 or 10/2 and it's supposed to arrive in the next day or so.

Thanks. That will be helpful. Yeah, they tell you it's out of their hands. If it doesn't show up tomorrow I will see if I can't get them to go pick it up. I drove by the train yard and saw it sitting there. It's only about 3 miles from the dealer for pete's sake.

When I go to the VOTS site, I get this:

Current Vehicle Status : Production Scheduled


Your vehicle order has been verified and is scheduled to be produced in our assembly plant




I called IAMJEEP and they said it's been D1, whatever that means, since 10/24. They didn't know when it would be built, but it's scheduled to clear inspection and be put on a railcar on 11/11 and be delivered on 11/15. Do those time frames normally end up being right? Just trying to get a ballpark idea of when it'll be here.
