I could be misreading your post, but yes certain '14 models are already produced. '14 Grand Cherokees and Patriots are all over the place here in Dallas.

Finally a thread I can belong to...Ordered mine in June through ENCS (AAFES). Delivery date is October 4th.

Ordered:
2014 Rubi, 2 Door
Billet
Auto
4.10
Half Doors.......A must have

Now I just need to get back from the Stan...Per Diem is going to buy the Rock Krawler 2.5" Max Travel along with some 15" Level 8 Trackers and 35" Pitbull Rockers. I literally plan on crawling over every speed bump that gets in my way.

I have some new milestones. Yesterday I received my full VIN and a buyer for my current vehicle for $1800 more than dealer was offering on tradein. Today I received an email from Jeep that I am gateline scheduled. I called and received an estimated ship date of August 8. Hopefully it only takes a week for it to get over to my dealership in Indiana after that.

I called the 800 number last week or maybe late the previous week and was told I had an August 2 ship date. I informed the buyer of my vehicle (2004 TJ) that we were looking at early August. Called this morning to check if the date had changed and the person on the phone had no clue as to when it would be shipped built or how I was even told a ship date before. She told me they don't give out that information. Very troubling.

Why is the delivery date so far away? If you ordered in June doesn't October seem a little far? I would expect it to be delivered late August max if not in early September. Mind you I know nothing of the build and selection process.

I was an annoying three times a week caller, some folks knew what they were doing and found me the information, some folks seemed to not have a clue. All were nice about....

@ Scrivah and StarBrite, I'm suppose to be home sometime in early October. ENCS goes off of what your return date home is and tries to get the delivery as close to that date as possible.

Just received email from my dealer...my JKUR is scheduled for shipment on 7/25. I had previously spoken to someone at IamJeep and they said shipment on 7/23. Perhaps 7/23 is the build date. Ordered on 6/14. I guess I'll know more this time next week!

This is lining up pretty well with what I was thinking.


It looks like they're guessing.....

Just back from the dealership (VOTS doesn't work for Canadian orders, eh!). Placed my order June 21, looked at the computer screen, build scheduled for July 21 (yeah that doesn`t make sense since 2014`s are supposed to be starting on the 22nd) but shipping date was scheduled for Aug 8th. Now my order was taken from dealer allocation as I understand. JK 24B in Anvil Hoping to have by Sept 1st.

I just read that Wrangler production levels of 519 units daily was reached this year. At that rate, seems to me that most of us could see our Jeeps move quickly through the build process. I do hope it is true that '14 model production starts on July 22nd.

Well I decided to give email a shot at finding out a little more info as to ship date. It took about 3 days for a response. Here is my questions and Jeep's response. I think it is a canned answer.
Quote:
I have recieved the emails through VOTS, but there is very little information other than "it is scheduled" I realize that timetables can change, but I would greatly appreciate any additional information you could give me. Thanks Kevin

Dear Kevin:

Congratulations on the order of your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara!

According to our resources, your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara is in the current status of "Gateline Schedule". All the materials needed to begin the manufacturing build process have been received and your vehicle should be entering the build process soon.

Please be advised that the status of "Production Scheduled" indicated within our VOTS actually encompasses two stages of the production process. Those stages are "Firm Schedule" and "Gateline Schedule". With that being said, it is not uncommon for a new vehicle order to remain in Production Scheduled for many weeks. We regret to advise that we have no way of predicting the date when the production of your vehicle will begin or how long it will take to complete, inspect and release your vehicle.

Our best suggestion would be for you to visit our VOTS at http://www.jeep.com/vots on a periodic basis for updates. Once your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara has reached the status of "Shipment", please feel free to contact us back. At that time, we should be able to provide you with an estimated time of arrival at your dealership.

You are always welcome to reply back to this email and we will respond back to you as promptly as we can. If you prefer, you can also call us directly with your questions at the Jeep Product Information Center by calling 1-800-964-0600.

Again, congratulations on the purchase of your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara, Kevin. Have a great day!

Sincerely,

Maureen
Jeep Product Information Center

Crayzness. So after being frustrated with Jeeps email response, I called. The lady on the phone seemed knowedgeable and was helpful. She says it is scheduled to start build on July 19th. How the email can say they have no way to predict and a quick call can get more detailed info is just nuts. Now I'll be watching VOTS all weekend I am pretty sure if I called right back, I could very well get the canned "there is no more information available.

Called IAMJEEP just now. Said they are scheduled to build but waiting on the clear side markers and extra floor mat hooks to ship in before they can do ANYTHING at all on 14's.


Ok that was a joke.

Estimated ship date still 8/1, estimated arrival 8/8 to CA.

It's been slow in here, so I ask this...

Out of curiosity... We are all waiting for the delivery of our new Jeep! Now, i know what the answer SHOULD be, but I'm curious as to how many actually do this... On that great day that the dealer calls you to come get your long awaited Jeep, how many people plan on taking it on a test drive before you go back the the Finance man to settle up???

5 Years ago I ordered a brand new WRX, and when I went up to pick it up I was so excited that it didn't even occur to me to take it out for a spin before I paid the man! All i wanted to do was get out of the dealership as quickly as possible, so I could go out and rev up that turbo! I realize now how dumb that was of me, and fortunately my WRX didn't have any issues! But, wow, I was really rolling the dice!

Thoughts?

Thanks for the reminder! Before this post I may have been too excited to think clearly enough to actually go for a test drive!

Well you are right and normally I would rather wait until they built a few hundred but the only difference between my 2014 and a 2013 is that my floor mats have two securing points. I hope they can get that right.

Take the TD. Most times they have little incentives going on if you take a test drive anyway. Last time I scored a jeep mug, two movie tickets, and a $10 gas card just for test driving a jeep I ORDERED!!

Hi Guys,
Haven't posted in a while. We're looking for a new wrangler, so here's the plan:

Looking to order a '14 JKUR
-Automatic
-4.10s
-Connectivity Group
-Tow package (Can I get a hitch and keep the 4.10's?)
-Side airbags

I'm considering
-Heated front seats
-Remote start
-Deep tint windows (does it really matter with a soft top?)


I know it's been hashed out here before, but is the premium soft top worth the $$?

I would have loved a nice Blue like on the new Chargers with the Daytona package but due to the limited choices I think we'll end up with Flame Red or White

-Anyone know how "red" flame red is? I really hate reds that have too much orange in them. If it's a true red then it'll be great.

I already have my tread lightly control number for the affiliate pricing, and I've dealt with my dealer on 5 different vehicles (mine, family and friends) so they treat me right. The big difference maker will be the #s they come up with for my trades!

TIA
Nick

I have a Flame Red on order and it is definitely red. I had an LJ in this color and loved it. We were out to dinner the other night and a FR JKUR drove by, takes a lot to get me excited but seeing a FR one in person did.

I ordered the heated seats as a concession to the wife, held off on the tow package and will order from Q-trec.

To my knowledge (we have a '14 JKUR on order) the Deep Tint windows are standard on the Unlimited versions because the rear doors are tinted.
