My 2013 Wrangler Ordering Delayed

I was in the process of ordering a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara.

We got everything entered in to order but the dealership then told me that the factory (Jeep) has a hold on all leather seats. Currently only cloth seats can be ordered.

Does anyone have any insite on this? Or when is this going to be back in production?

I'm kinda bummed out because of the delay. I wanted to start driving the JKU asap!

Leather is on restriction right now... I ordered leather a few days ago, but I don't what it means. It might help if it is a "sold order"....maybe....

When I ordered mine last month, there was a restriction on leather/auto combinations. It didn't matter that it was a sold order, they were restricted until the 12th of Sept, so my order didn't actually go in until that day.

I assume this is the same type of thing...even if it's a sold order, it's on restriction, so you have to wait until the restriction is lifted for the order to be allowed. I could be wrong though...

Well heck....if leather is on restriction, I still have time to change my order.

I can't tell if I beat restriction by a day. My POC (Priced Order Confirmation) shows a pinkish "highlight" type block at the bottom that says "restriction"...but nothing on my order is actually highlighted as restricted.

If it is going to be delayed....that may give me time to see what shakes out with the Moab or Freedom Edition.

I wonder if the restriction is on the leather itself?

How do you tell about these restrictions? I ordered a JK wrangler sahara with leather and auto on 9/25, and it shows that it will unloaded from railcar on 10/25. didnt see anything about restrictions or order on hold.
