Just curious you guys that are custom ordering, did they not have a local inventory of what you wanted or did you just want to get custom delivered kinda thing?

I checked every dealer within 200 miles and couldn't find one equipped the way I wanted.

I couldn't find anything with exactly what I wanted, but the main reason for me was that I couldn't find a single 2dr with 3.73 gears nearby.

Update:
Ordered: 2/29/12
Scheduled build date: 3/15/12
Called today and they said it still says scheduled for production and there is absolutely no ETA on delivery? Great...

They searched out over 1000 miles and couldn't find one so I had no other choice...

The combination of the options I ordered aren't found easily on a base model that's typically on the lot. I wanted all business, no fluff.

I just ordered my 2012 JKUR on 3/12/12 and got my first email confirmation from Jeep on 3/16. Spoke to my dealer today and don't have a VIN or VON yet.

The wait is killing me. How long does it normally take for production status updates to start?

Also, does anyone have the dimensions of the hard top? I'm in an apt building in Boston, but have storage in the basement so I want to start scoping out a spot to store the hard top once it arrives...

Snikt,
You have to be insistent with the dealer. They are going to try like hell to sell you one from stock or another dealers stock, rather than use up one of their allocations on the next order go around.
(by the way I believe the last orders they will take for 2012 model year is in May. Then they build those on order then start to retool for the 2013 models.)

They may or may not be willing to order you one for less than retail price. Its hard to negotiate a good price when the sales manager knows its not going to be in that months sales quota numbers. It really depends on the dealer.

After seeing my Jeep sit in "D Status" for a few weeks I called the 800 number and they told me that ETA from the rail car is 3/29. I doesn't look like the website is being updated. Does anyone know how long it will take to get to the dealer from this point?

I was expecting an 8 week wait for my JKUR so when I heard this I was completely surprised given that I only ordered it on 2/17.

Called the Jeep # today, the nice lady said mine was scheduled to build on 3/15. No other promise dates available though, so back to the waiting room music...............

Any one else have an issue with the VOTS site?

I ordered my Crush JKU Sport S on March 9th. Got my vin and von Monday of this week. Checked the site and does not find my vehicle. I called the IAMJeep number and the lady tells me it is scheduled for production with a ETA for shipping of March 30th.

Does that sound right?

I need to sell my current car ASAP I guess.

Sorry, VOTS is so inconsistent that I have no idea. I ordered on 3/3 and still never received email one. But I was able to get my VON from the dealer and the VIN from 877IAMJEEP. Called today, still in "D" scheduled for production status. They said I should have an estimated ship date next week, but who knows?

Yea I wouldn't trust the VOTS site as far as you can throw it. I would just keep checking in with the IAMJEEP number but the info they give seems to be about a day behind. Mine didn't make the first production date but was only a day behind on the shipping. Since you are in the neighborhood they told me it would be about two weeks to get it here. Mine shipped yesterday but is going to be here around the 3rd. So you should have a few more days to get that car sold. Good Luck!!

At the dealership close to my house they were curt in letting me know that they would not order squat.

At the dealership across town, they showed me the green/black -- but had nothing in half doors, manual, etc., so I told them that I wanted to order. With zero hassle they were like, okay. And they did.

Worth the 45 minute drive? You bet.

You'll get it eventually, I believe the dealer gets the VON when they place the order but my dealer didn't give it to me. It took about a week and a half before I even got an email saying they got my order, then at a little over 2 weeks I got my VIN

How much you want to bet our Jeeps are built and sitting on the factory lot awaiting a car hauler? I read on Autoblog that there is a shortage of car haulers available, check this out: Vehicle hauler shortage to threaten new car sales?

Haha, well I actually wouldn't mind that as much. What worries me is the possibility that they haven't built it and have no idea when they are going to build it.

BFG JKUR -- Order entered 2/23, VOTS has never shown anything except "production scheduled", and IAMJEEP still tells me that they have no idea on anything but they do see the order. Calling them again later today.

Not one email yet but just got an update from IAMJeep.
3-15 scheduled for production (ordered 3-9)
Told that it is scheduled to leave plant on train 4/1 and unload at location in Voltz,MO on 4/8.

She warned me that these dates could change but was very helpful.

Anyone in the midwest that wants to buy a fuel efficient 2011 Ford Fiesta hatchback?

With the JKU in Crush my wife is giving me my man card back. I don't need no stinkin' MPG!!!

FINALLY. Some tentative dates from IAMJEEP. And beleive me, after what I have seen on this site and other, I know how incorrect they can be so I am not counting on anything.

Scheduled for production 6:46 AM on 3/20 (two days ago)
Railcar loading scheduled for 4/1
Railcar reaches destination 4/6
Delivery to dealer ?????

So if any of this holds even remotely true, I am looking at about 8 weeks start to finish and it should be at the dealer around mid april.

Thanks for the Reply... But how and where do you check status if you don't have a VON or VIN?? I don't even know if Jeep has acknowledged my order.
All the dealer can tell me is the order has been placed 3-15.

Not sure, I couldn't track mine until I got the email with the VIN. If the dealer says he placed it, then they should have it. I don't think there is anything you can do without the VON.

Yeah I placed my order on 3/12 and got my confirmation email from Jeep on 3/16. Still no VIN or VON. Should I be bugging my dealer about it??
