Well, my wait is over. Dealer called late this afternoon and told me my Jeep has arrived! Going tomorrow to pick it up! Good luck to all of you and hope yours comes sooner than you were told.

TIA
Ordered 12/6 & I think I received the first email in about a week - second came shortly thereafter. Now all I have from Jeep is an 'estimated' ship date of 12/28 (which has obviously passed) & no further indication as to when it will be built...

I called my sales guy today and he said it's still in D1, but he also says it's scheduled to ship on January 4th!! I thought they took longer to build than that but ok I'm not complaining. Still, sounds like I'm looking more toward the end of January minimum to get it and I was hoping for by the 13th for my birthday weekend.
When did you place the order?

Picked up mine on 11/30/11. Shopped around for 2 1/2 months. The wait was a killer. This is my first jeep.

After only a few weeks I got the upgrade fever. Lights, bumpers, wheels, lift. etc.

It never ends. the best part is the after market folks built parts that fit!!! what a novelty.

My hat goes off to all of you real jeepers who have helped and given non-biased advice...

Jeep arrived in Phoenix Sat. 31 and is slated to be at dealers in Casa Grande by the 9th. Then it has to be "preped". So we may have it by Feb. I've accepted the fact I'll get it when it's ready.

Finally - the wait is over! Got the call from the dealership and my Wrangler is being detailed as we speak. I'll be picking it up after work (and leaving a few hours early to boot!)...so excited!

Tomorrow will be 84 days and still no word on anything. Going to the dealer this week to ask WTF is happening....
I must say communication with my dealer has been less then disappointing to say the least.

91 days here, also from Canada. Mine will be a red 2 door Rubicon, what did you order? Also I'm not at all happy with my dealer, they just don't seem to care and don't even return my calls. Makes me wonder how they'll be after the sale.

We are in the same boat Bro. After sales will be an Afterthought, IMHO!
I ordered a Black JKUR, full load but I don't think that matters really. I've heard there will be a Canadian production run in Jan/Feb but I hope it's not that late.

I picked up my JKUR last night and so far it's all smiles for me. It felt great when my kids were going crazy over it when I pulled up. The neighbors came over for a walk around and all they could say was "It's Fu**ing Awesome :o) now tonight's forecast is snow and I'm ready to play!
