Shipment to Delivery??

Looking for input on people's experience on how long from shipment to delivery at your dealer. I got shipment notice on 3/16 , but I don't think they provide any further tracking options. CO is the destination....

I got my my shipment notice on VOTS on Monday Feb 20. (Who knows when it actually shipped because VOTS is notoriously inaccurate. On Sunday, the day before, VOTS showed my JKU in "paint"!) Colorado (Denver) offload from the train was probably three days later on Feb 23 because my JKU arrived in Cheyenne, WY via truck on Feb 24. Total time from order to delivery was twenty-eight days. I think you will driving your Jeep soon!

I picked mine up about 15 days after I was told it was shipped. I also had christmas and new years holidays during that period. I picked mine up on Jan 4.

Call 1-877-IAMJEEP and wait for the operator to come on the line. Be prepared to give /him/her the last 8-digits of your VIN.
Most times that will have a delivery date to the dealer if it's actually in transit.
VOTS marks your build as "Shipped" once it leaves the plant for the holding lot. It can sit there for a while.
Delivery time depends on whether it goes by train or truck, how many stops it makes, how long it sits at the final destination before the dealer gets it.
Mine made it from the plant to Hawaii in 15 days and I would expect yours will be quicker than that.

Fill the time by spending lots of money on mods to do to it to make it yours.

You could definitely have it this weekend. Mine was loaded on the train on 1-6 according to my dealer (they called that Friday) though VOTS showed shipped a day or two before that. He expected it to hit the train terminal which is about 2 hours away on the following Friday the 13th and then be at the dealer maybe on Monday the 16th.

Instead I got a call Friday the 13th saying the Jeep arrived that morning and could be ready on Saturday. I still didn't get it until the 16th because I had out of town plans but the Jeep was still there in a week and I'm in California which is a bit further than CO from OH.
