I doubt it will be a lot longer. Depending on when it is built, there may be a short delay due to the holiday shutdown. I ordered mine on 10/31, it was built on 11/23 and I picked it up yesterday. That included the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. If yours is shipped prior to the holiday, you shouldn't experience much, if any, delay.

So, obviously it's not a " First come, First Served, or built to order! " thing or I would have mine before you and that's not the case. You have yours and I still don't have a VIN. Seems like the process is all over the place?

The logic makes sense, but I ordered a JKUR on 10/6, not built until 11/16, then shipped the next day - still don't have it, and dealer just pushed estimated delivery back (again) from yesterday to next week (that's a month of shipping time). I'm in MA, not the farthest from Toledo - and a pretty large Jeep market.

Soooo aggravating, but just too many variables to have any confidence in total time from order to delivery.

Well, being one of those guys that ordered a MW3 Edition back on 17 NOV, I can tell you it that as of today, 6 DEC, it hasn't started production yet...wait driving me crazy too! Best of luck that you get yours sooner than later.

Email

Your dealer is smoking something funny if he said you were going to get email updates. I order 11/8/11 and contacted Jeep a couple of weeks ago on the status, they said there was no order info or VIN for my vehicle based on the VON I gave them. Said they would email me the next week with an update.

A little nervous contacted the dealer, he had the VIN and figured out I was in D1 status. Still no email from Jeep. I would just keep in contact with your sales person, the dealer seems to have more updated info. My Jeep is supposed to shipped 12/12 but no update in VOTS so I am guessing it is as unreliable as everyone says it is.

Now that's sharp looking! Love the interior, exact same color I ordered. I still don't know why so many are vehemently opposed to the tan interiors...

Just got off the phone with the dealer and I got a VIN.

He said it was scheduled to be built so that should mean D1.

I ordered a silver Rubicon two weeks ago. Not sure if it's true, but my dealer said he ordered 32 of them a month prior to me placing my order and could switch up some of the options on one of his to match the one I want. He said this should shorten the build time to 4-6 weeks?? He's probably blowing smoke up my a$$ because I still don't have a VIN number yet.

Dealer called me this afternoon and told me that he spoke with one of their reps and told him of my order and the rep told him he will have my Jeep here by the end of the month. Cant wait and hope it happens!

My dealer also told me that I wouldnt get any emails from them or Jeep but I should/could call them and they would look it up in their system and let me know the status. The GM said call once a day if I wanted, he didnt care.

I didnt ask if I had a VIN and just assumed I do, probably should call them and see if I do....

mjf...thanks, that gives me hope. I've been calling every few days. Tomorrow I will call again. One thing that bigs me is that my dealer didn't want me to make a deposit on my order....said my word is good. I hope they are sincere and don't try to pull the wool on me later.

hey James....love the white Rubi. How did you get those black rims? Nice. I've had 2 white jeeps and always like the white/tan combo.

Yeah do. I just checked my order in VOTs and it's there showing it's in D1. Not that dealers will lie to you but just to verify what they are saying is factual.

Just got my VIN. I had to place a call to I-AM-JEEP. Anyhow, it's scheduled for production. Not sure when, but at least it's scheduled.

I firmed my order with dealer on 11/19, so it took 2.5 wks to get VIN.

This is delivering to Arkansas....I hope I have it by Christmas. JKUR, Flame Red, MT, heated seats, hard top, 430N, tow pkg.

I guess was one of the luckier ones...ordered my 2012 JKS - black forest green w/black hardtop the evening of 11/28 (a Monday). By Friday 12/2, we had a VIN # and D1 status. My sales guy said he NEVER had an order go through so fast before. Supposed to be loaded onto the railcar on 12/15 with an expected arrival date of 12/27. Hope to have an update next week.

I called I-AM-JEEP and spoke with a rep, Gave him my VON and he told me it doesn't exist! Gave him my Name and nothing. Put me through to Canada Customer service and they have no clue on how to go about it other then telling me to contact my dealer ASAP...

So that's begs the question are VON's different in CAN conpared to USA? Mine is an 8 digit # starting with 2595????.

My JK Sahara is in KZM status as of Monday. Ordered on 11/15, VIN on 11/18, and KZM on 12/5. Initial estimated ship date ws 12/2 so looks like it was only a few days behind that. I talked to Jeep customer service today and they were not able to describe how it will get to the dealer here in SD. I am guessing rail to Denver and truck from there to here.

So, if the VON's are basically the same 8 digit #, just a different combination, why wouldn't mine show in their system? Weird!
They obviously don't build/assign the jeeps as they get VON's, right?

Redrock... call 877 426 5337. They will need your VON which is on the order confiramtion sheet that your dealer shouldv'e given to you. They will give you the VIN which can be tracked. The VON does not contain the same numbers as you VIN. good luck.

Except they can only give you a VIN once production is scheduled, which could be anywhere from days to weeks (in my case over 5 weeks) from when you place order.

Correct. Production scheduling is complex, with a lot of variables, including parts availability, order priority, what Jimmy in scheduling had for lunch, etc., etc.

In any case, it is absolutely not First In, First Out....

Thought so!

I got a PM back from another Canadian member here who happens to work at another Jeep dealership. Gave him my VON and he checked into it for me, ( much appreciated BTW ) and my status according to him is just "D" so still waiting production sometime, probably Jan/Feb for us Canadian customers... Looks like a spring delivery though I was hoping to have it before the new year. Oh well, time to put it in the back of my mind and be surprised when the call comes in 4 months!

He said my jeep is in D1 since 12/2 with a finish date of 12/15 and to be put on the railroad car. He said eta for delivery to my dealer is 12/20. He was amazed how fast its going since i ordered it last monday. He also said to call back next week to check the status. Thanks again!
