Hopefully you'll still be able to get katzkins installed yourself sometime after taking delivery.
From what I read it wasn't available all of 2012 and a lot of people were working deals with their dealers to get it at the same price or cheaper financed in with the Jeep after delivery. Pros: you have more options as far as coloring, perforation, embroidering. Cons: you have to know your Jeep is at the dealer but you are waiting for the seats to be installed!

So, if the interior doesn't change in the next day or two, he said we would have to cancel that order and submit another when the restriction on Dark Saddle is removed. Got my fingers crossed that they will be able to get that changed and keep my Jeep in the same production schedule! I made sure to write on the order I signed that it was contingent on getting the interior color changed to Dark Saddle. It'll be disappointing if they have to cancel and resubmit later, but I'd really rather not have a dark interior in the Valley of the Sun!
I ordered my JKUR 6/5/12 @ 11 AM Pacific time, with ALXV Black/Dark Saddle leather. While I have a VON, I have yet to receive an email, nor can I look my VON up in VOTS. My guess is the ALXV restricted status/equipment delay is keeping my order from being scheduled and assigned a VIN.

Just called the dealer, and i'm in C status. Sounds like the emails go out when the orders flip to D status.

Well since you said they didn't give you a VON etc, I figured you went up there.

I would have been up there asking for all my info!!!

New to this forum but have lurked for awhile. Currently have a 2003 Rubicon and would like to get a 10th anniversary edition to go with it.

Any idea when information on the 2013 anniversary edition Rubicon will be available? Look forward to checking it out and getting an order in.

According to Milous's master post (1st post in this thread): 10th Anniversary Rubicon model (March 2013)

Looks like it'll be awhile.

I would say that if there is a delay on the interior you want, there will be a slight delay in build time.

It shouldn't be a long wait, but I waited 4 months for my 09 JK. I also waited 3 months for my Viper.......and it was built....

Chrysler can be a fickle friend. You can not make them move any faster. This is the 4th vehicle that we have ordered. It is always a seemingly endless wait.

With that said, it is REALLY COOL when that window sticker says, "This vehicle was built for "your name""

It will all work out.

Haha I never did get a VON, but I was able to get into VOTS by using the last 8 digits of my VIN!

I guess I am way pickier than you. I collect everything, I have my original order invoice, a 2012 Jeep catalog and when my truck comes in....they call me. I prep my own vehicle. So I take all the plastic off the seats and take the window sticker off. I save everything except the plastic.

For my Viper I unloaded it from the truck and then I even called in the prep tech on his day off (we are friends) and he prepped the car and I went with him for the first ride.

I plan to be there when my 13 Rubicon come in....

Can anyone confirm that the 6 speed manual Rubicon comes standard with 4.10 gears? I was told by my dealer that the 3.73 for the Rubicon was only for the automatic, is this true? Just want to make sure there's no oversight with this order.

I'm happy to wait if I get what I want. I ordered my Nissan Leaf last year and I had never even touched one. Waited 5 months for it to arrive, and it was the first one I sat in. Frankly I think they are pretty fugly, but for $0.02 per mile to power it, I will drive anything.

I'm actually sort of happy for the delay. It will mean that much less time you could get a Dozer JK with the two-tone interior. I'm excited that by the time I get it, you won't be able to order one like it, unless you run right down and place your order. (Dozer end of production 10/12/12, Dark Saddle interior start production 8/1/12).

True dat! I ordered a 6 speed manual with 4.10 ! The 3.73 is only standard on the automatic. The 4.10 is standard on the 6 speed manual.

OK ...... I am puzzled here ....
From what has been posted here there are ONLY FOUR colors avaible to get
when the production starts and with Bright White & Flame Red stopping
before production starts ....

Final production scheduled to end:*
Dozer Clear Coat (PY5) - 10/12/12
Crush Clear Coat (PL4) - 11/09/12
Gecko Green Pearl Coat (PFM) - 12/14/12
Deep Cherry Red Crystal Coat (PRP) - 02/08/13

Initial Production is scheduled to begin:
Black Clear Coat (PX8) -07/23/12

The only one I would come close to think of getting is Cherry Red :-(

True Blue was not posted and Black is there. It starts just before production of 2013's.

I too, much prefer the 2013 new color offerings to the 2012s. Hope that Rock Lobster has less orange in it than Flame Red, that Anvil looks silvery-black like the actual anvil someone posted here, and that Commando is a knock-out. Can't decipher if Dune will be more tan or beige toned (wish it was Sand-Track color like on Kia Sportage). My guess is Fuschsia may be quite limited so last minute orders may be at a furious rate.

Again, thanks Milous, Up-Hill Bill, and Pat for your continual and timely updates. If any conflict with the below information and Milous' information ... go with Milous. And, thank you Jeep for giving us 7 new interesting colors and continual upgrades to the vehicles.

Final production scheduled to end:
Bright White Clear Coat (PW7) - 07/20/12
Flame Red Clear Coat (PR4) - 07/13/12
Dozer Clear Coat (PY5) - 10/12/12
Crush Clear Coat (PL4) - 11/09/12
Gecko Green Pearl Coat (PFM) - 12/14/12
Deep Cherry Red Crystal Coat (PRP) - 02/08/13


Initial Production is scheduled to begin:
Black Clear Coat (PX8) -07/23/12
Polynesian Green Pearl Coat - Commando Green (PGH) - 09/04/12
Billet Metallic Clear Coat (PX8) - 09/04/12
Rock Lobster Clear Coat (PKT) - 10/01/12
Dune Clear Coat (PTT) - 12/06/12
Rugged Brown Pearl Coat (PTW) - 02/04/13
Anvil Clear Coat (PDS) - 03/04/13
10th Anniversary Rubicon (2TJ) - 03/04/13
Furious Fuschsia Pearl Coat (PHP) - 05/06/13

I changed my order to Dozer, but my build sheet still says True Blue. I'm trying to get it changed. Unfortunately for me, True Blue is an option.

My 2013 order is for Bright White... and everything seems to be moving in the right direction.

Somebody still needs to find out if the "new interior" includes a rear seat that actually has support for the center seating position on the JKU now. Are they actually changing the seats, or is this just a new fabric to cover them with?

I just got a Production Scheduled update on my VON as well. I ordered a JKUR on 6/8/2012

My dealer still insists he should see this vehicle the end of July even though I've been expecting the end of August based on what I've seen in this thread.

I don't think there's a way to find this out yet. However, based upon the photos that Pat accidentally posted too early (and subsequently removed) it looks like they are actually changing the design of the seats. I don't know that this would qualify as a "new interior" though...

You should ask him if he will give you a refund of $100 for every day it is late after July 31, and then see how much he insists.

So production of the 2013's start 7-23-12. For those of you that have placed orders early, when do you expect to have your jeep delivered to you? Four weeks later? Six? Eight? I am leaning toward ordering a 2013 Rubicon myself, but I really want to see the new 2013 changes with my own eyes before I place an order. My problem is that I want either Crush or Dozer and my window to order one is going to be tight. Is it reasonable to think that the first few 2013's will be on dealer lots by the end of August?

This past weekend I placed an order for a 2013 Unlimited Sahara. In reviewing the paperwork that I was given, it shows listed as a DEALER ORDER with a BUILD PRIORITY of 99. In reading through this forum, I see SOLD ORDER referenced. Should my order have been placed that way? Is there a difference?

The front seats are totally different in '13, and the rear seats seem different too from the few pictures I have seen. How that actually plays out in terms of support and comfort we will have to wait and see. I'm confident we will know in 6 weeks or so when the first customer orders are delivered.

I don't expect much detail from Jeep promoting the '13s until the press launch on 9/1.

Why is your window tight to order 1 of those colors? They're around till Oct/Nov...
