Talking March Waiting Room 2012

Hi folks!

I'm new to the forum, loved jeeps my whole life. My first Wrangler was a 2007 JK. The poor thing was totaled when someone ran a stop sign, T-boned me and rolled me over all the way back onto my wheels. I walked away with a few bruises. Go roll bars!

I ordered a bright white JKU Rubi to replace it on 3/3/2012. No VON yet and I can't wait!

I've already gotten so much useful info from this forum, I wish I had joined years ago!

Very happy to be here and thanks for everything!

Welcome! Perhaps doubling up with the rock rails is in order this time around I'm in the February waiting room, but the walls are paper thin here. Thought I'd say HI!

Wharfrat, your dealer should have a VON as soon as they place the order. I reached agreement w/my dealer on a Sunday night and had the VON Monday AM.

I got my VON in the same 30 minutes it took to order my Jeep at the dealership, 3/1. No VIN yet, so I haven’t told anyone I know so I won’t jinx it. It won’t feel real until I get a VIN.

JKUR in Winter Chill which will hopefully be pretty unique in the San Diego area. It’s in BG status but I had to find that out from the dealer. That VOT thing and the URL line I saw in another forum doesn’t work for me, maybe it won’t until I’m in D or something.

Just ordered!

Hey everyone, after selling my 2003 Inca Gold TJ "X" awhile back, I decided to come back home and just placed an order for a 2012 Black Forest Green JKU Sport S.

After learning from others on this forum, I spec'd it out, ordered, and got my VON today.

Automatic (I know, I know)
Dual Top Group
Connectivity Group
7 speaker Infinity Sound System w/subwoofer
Supplemental front side airbags (safety first!)
3.73 rear axle ratio (almost bought one off the lot without this...whew!)

Still up in the air for side steps. May be able to snag a pair of Sahara steps on Craigslist for cheap. Or may throw some ACE sliders..I need it to function as a step too!

Glad to be here..and now the wait begins. I only live about an hour from the Jeep Factory...wish I I could watch it being built or drive it home from there!.

Thanks!!!

Yeah this is what I hear. I noticed they also have not cashed my depost check and it's now 2 weeks later. I just sent an email to the head of the sales department. I'd like to know what they are trying to pull here.

Anyone have any ideas as to what they are doing and why it would not benefit them to place the order immediately? Trying to stretch out numbers to meet March sales goals instead of Feb perhaps? Even if that is the case, it's now been March for 8 days.

I think the order only counts as a sale when the purchase is complete - the day you close the deal. So it counts the month you purchase, that's why you can still qualify for better incentives that arrive when the Jeep arrives. So delaying the order when they have no idea when exactly it will arrive, doesn't really benefit them.

March Waiting Room 2012

Hi Everyone-

Technically I too should be in the Feb waiting room but thought the March waiting room would be a better place given I just got my vin # on 3/7.

I ordered my JKUR on 2/16, I splurged with a fully loaded automatic. The dealer said it may take longer than usual for delivery due to the number of options I got. After looking at some of the posted it looks more like 8+weeks.

Does anyone have any insight on if the JKUR's are taking longer? I see that the Sports & Sahara's are taking far less time for production.

Just got my VIN from the dealer. Apparently they really did order it on 2/23. "Production Scheduled" according to the site.

Max Tow Package
Anti-Spin Differential Rear Axle
Half Metal Doors with Locks
SIRIUS Satellite Radio
Black Appearance Group
Smoker's Group (but don't smoke)

I'm another roll-over from the Feb waiting room. Placed my order 2/29, although the dealer may not have actually put it in until the next day. So, this is most likely the appropriate room.

2012 Black JK Sport S (2dr)

6 Speed Manual
Power Convenience Group
3.73 gears
Dual Top group
Tow Package
Deep Tint windows
Limited slip differential

Just received my first email today (3/9/12). It just says that they are in the process of building and delivering the parts required to assemble my vehicle. Email to follow with tracking information once production is scheduled.

It's only been a week and the wait is killing me.
My plasti-dip arrived today, I will be spraying the wheels black as soon as she gets home.

My order got updated to Production Scheduled. It is a winter chill JK Rubicon. Looks like they are doing them earlier to run through the color.

I'll be plastic dipping my wheels too. Then I'll Zaino it too.

On the night shade, I will have to see how much black will go with Winter Chill. The black hard top, black fender flares, and black wheels. It could work out well. Compliments each other.

Zaino is some good stuff, if you are into detailing your Jeep, long lasting and incredible shine, until it gets muddy.

Yeah its less depressing in this thread, people in the Feb waiting room are starting to get deliveries in. While I am happy for them, I'd rather be in here where we are all still waiting together, lol

At least your ahead of the curve here, you should be seeing progress soon, hopefully

Misery loves company. Ordered Winter Chill Rubicon on 2/12 & status is stuck in D.

I learned hitting refresh on VOTS does not help (but I still do it a few times a day anyway)

I've read in other threads about "codes" on the VOTS (D, D1, etc). Am I missing something? I don't see any of this when I check my status.

Well I am in the delivery room. It is on its way here. I ordered in Feb. Here is the deal with that tracking system they say is so great. I got one when they received the order another was when it was scheduled for production. I checked that thing every day waiting to see it go through the different stages. Well I got another email last Wednesday stating that my new jeep was finished and out for delivery. So I called my dealer and they said it should be here by the end of the week or first of next. It depends on how long it takes to get the rail car full headed to Memphis. Projected date March 17-20th. Who knows when it will actually get here. But I am soooooooo ready. I have it's stall all decorated and a full list of things to order as soon as I actually get it here!!
