Still waiting for my new Sahara but...now I have status updates!

I ordered my 2 door Sahara on March 25th and have been waiting patiently since...NOT!

Two weeks ago a vehicle pops up on the dealer website...VIN and all...matching my order. I called the dealer and got a status update - D1.

Last week I called them back. They did not know anything different. Called Jeep who told me it would ship on 4/30. I sent a PM to Pat (God bless him!) who gave me a 5/5 (today) delivery.

Monday the dealer website has the full window sticker for my Jeep. Jeep said it left the plant.
Tuesday the dealer called and said it would not be built until later this month. HOWEVER....

...when I asked them about the vehicle on their site and told them what Jeep and Pat (God bless him!) said they offered to check on it and call me back. Still waiting for the call. MEANWHILE...

I found a link on the web...input my VIN...and got complete status updates. It is still in Toledo. BUT...

I installed a web page checker on my iPhone to alert me as soon as that page changes. If it works I'll let you know.

Here's the link...replace "YourVINhere" with your VIN after the "TRACEABLES="

Hey at least it is staged for shipment. I have been waiting for a sold unit that supposedly left toledo on 4/27, but it's still not here. Put in a call, haven't heard back yet. Normally I wouldn't be this ticked off but the client has a dog rescue she runs and needs a vehicle.

I'm getting antsy...there is another one on the dealer website which says in transit. I looked it up and it says that it left Toledo on the 27th. Still not there. I've seen others get from Toledo to dealerships an hour from here in one day!

I can't take this anymore! I need therapy!

My dealers websight has my JKu "in transit" with the "window sticker".
I've been patient, but now knowing it's just sitting there makes it annoying.

Pat- question-- it shows built at 10:50 PM-- I can assume that the JKU was started and completed on the 25th? That would mean it's a Monday vehicle... better than a Friday vehicle, I guess... ha-ha

Dang. Hadn't thought about that. Mine finished on a Friday.

Sitting in bay F115. Not my driveway.

I status is inspection so it was finished being built either the 24th or 25th.

Thanks, Pat.

Well, I can always hope it's a Monday vehicle....
pretty sad when you're sitting there saying
"please don't be a Friday vehicle, please don't be a Friday vehicle".....
