Copperhead disappearing?

In trying to build my new rubicon x, copperhead appears to no longer be an option. It was even greyed out at the dealership, and appears to only be available on a limited number of vehicles. Anyone know what is going on with this?

Was it ever really available on the RX? It was suppose to, finally, be offered on the RX starting on 3/7, but there have been several reports here by people who went to try to order one over the past couple of weeks, that said they couldn't.

The X was available in Copperhead for order on 3/17. I was going to dealer to order yesterday but some things came up and didn't make. I plan on going Monday. If it's no longer available I'm gonna be pissed if it only opened up for one week.

It was there when I tried to build previously, but suddenly went away. When I started doing a preliminary build at the dealership it was there but he couldn't select it :-/

Was it open for even 1 week?

I haven't seen anyone reporting here, that they were able to actually place an order for an RX in copperhead.

It was there at one point recently, though I can't tell you exactly what dates.

Jeepfan95 was able to order a JKRX on the 18th. He has VON, but not sure if he has his VIN yet.
His post is about 1/3 of the way down on this page:
2014 JK Order Waiting Room

Post #17264

So if they stopped taking orders again, he may have a very rare bird!
Just so long as he doesn't lend it to a buddy, and it comes back a different color...

I hope this copperhead situation has nothing to do with that dream he had, and now has to order a different color.

Part of me hopes it doesn't get offered on the RX because that is why I went ahead and purchased a regular Rubi in copperhead. I wanted an X but wanted Copperhead more.

He's hoping Jeepfan95's order makes it to D1.

Fixed that for ya!

Yeah, I think the X in Copperhead would be a stunner! Especially with the way the peal lights up on the curves. What a view out the windshield with that curvacious hood.
I've got fingers and legs crossed hoping he gets it!

I'm hoping, too... I really love the copperhead. I didn't see it when I tried w a standard rubicon on the jeep builder, either. When I go back to the dealership next weekend, I'll find out the deal if I can.

I just ordered a JKUR yesterday in billet, I was torn between copperhead and billet.
Finally decided but, copperhead was available on my dealers order portal yesterday on a JKUR.

Jeeps dealers computer system does strange things like that....i recall trying to order my copperhead sport last year when they were first available. apparently the computers didn't allow it to be ordered or optioned out. checkin the 2014 info thread and see what Pat says.

more then likely it'll open up again soon. keep your heads up guys !!!

No VIN yet but I do have my VON. I talked to my dealer today and they told me that all Rubicons are currently on restriction. Not sure if that is true or not.

If I have to order another color I will be pissed. Especially after getting a VON.

Glad to see you were finally able to get your order in! What was the restriction for?

Well ordering can be done anytime... unforunately the restriction can be on there for for however long. Could be a few weeks or more really.

Are you aware of any orders being cancelled because of a restriction? I would sure hate for that to happen.

If the restriction lasts until the end of the model year, the orders tend to be automatically cancelled.
