Insight only works if you are D1 status. Don't know if you're D1 or not, but that could be it.

If she is on the truck, seems like she would get to the dealer tomorrow. I think the flu hits quickly - sometimes a few days faster than expected! Does she have a name yet?

Mine is going to be a boy. I know vehicles are always girls, but I just can't drive a girl.

I figure I still have 2 - 3 weeks. Not nearly soon enough.

I am CRUSHED, though. Crushed that all these folks who ordered after I did are now driving around in their Jeeps.

This is true! They said I should be able to pick it up the same day it comes in so I'll give them a call tomorrow and see if she's there. Yours can be a boy if you really want but it would be much hotter if it was a girl!

I'm new to this. Anyhow I have been into the dealership and I'm ready to pull the trigger on ordering a JKU Rubicon in crush. Any do's or don'ts and what's the average turn around time until I have this amazing vehicle in my hot little hands?

Do order!! Know what you are doing when you walk in the dealership. I used the Milous post with the invoice numbers to create a spreadsheet with the options I wanted. I took that with me an knew exactly what I was willing to pay and what I was not about to pay!!!

Then, be prepared to wait, and wait, and wait.

Right now, the folks who ordered Rubicons and Sports are getting theirs, even if they ordered more recently. They evidently haven't built Saharas yet (what I ordered). I don't know if they halt production of Rubicons and Sports when they build Saharas.

We have had many theories over the past few months, but the bottom line is we just do not have a clue about any of it!!

So I think only the plant managers know the exact date... Everything else is a guess. Dealer was seeing the dates in insight like me, shipping the 28th. He said that pretty much means they would likely start Monday because it would take a few days to build.

So lets keep each other posted, I think both of us should see frame start no later than Monday, but I do believe they work 3 shifts Mon-Sat and so I still have hope we might see movement tomorrow and that your ship date isn't totally bogus.

It has been a long week, longest of the whole waiting period if you ask me!
My Sahara build date is 10/25! I ordered on 8/15. How long does it take to complete the build process and ship it?

Did you get that from a dealer? Makes sense since I was told 10/24.

Too long????!!!!!!!

The dealer told me that date but they also told me two weeks ago that I would have it on 10/24 so I'm not going to hold my breath! In insight it says: Shuttled to Facility10/25/2011 04:00 AM CDTVASC - Toledo Nitro Creek Yard, OH

Does yours say something similar?

Mine says it is going to be loaded onto a railcar 10/25. It hasn't been built, so I have serious doubts that could happen. In fact, I don't THINK it comes via rail - I THINK it comes here on a truck. (Not 100% sure of that, though.) It then says it will arrive at the dealer on 10/28.

So, no, I do not have a "shuttled to facility" line.

I am figuring I need to add a minimum of two more weeks to those dates.

Someone was asking how long, and your post is a good example. Mine is loaded on the railcar at the plant, not shuttled (which I think means you are loaded on a truck for a short run to another line). 2012-Rubicon is our resident rail expert, so maybe he knows for sure... But anyway...

From there it looks like a straight shot to Chicago for me, in about 2 days, then wait a day for the Denver train, and then another 2 day run to Denver. I found my rail facility on google maps (pretty cool, you can see rows of the same car in the lot along with all the rail cars and car carrier trucks). It is like a 30m drive from my dealer.

So depending on where you are your transit time is gonna vary a lot. To make it more complex, I am sure those trucks don't leave until they are full of cars for their intended dealer.

My dealer only says 21st or 24th, I think he would have to call Chrysler to find out for sure. But I am thinking my Sahara gets built next week, as my ship date is Friday. With arrival and rail unload Wednesday. I have been looking at other VINs at my dealer on Insight, they all seem to arrive the day after unloading... So I am hoping Friday the 3rd.

Lots of stuff can and does happen though... From part delays to inspection fails to transit delays. So as LadyJ pretty much said, we are doing lots of guessing!

My insight:

Route Movements Event Date Location
Current
Scheduled for Build (D1) 10/15/2011 05:44 AM CDT Toledo Supplier Park, OH
Future
Loaded On Railcar 10/28/2011 03:00 AM CDT Toledo Supplier Park, OH
Railcar - Interchanged 10/30/2011 08:00 AM CDT Chicago, IL
Railcar - Interchanged 10/31/2011 04:00 PM CDT Chicago, IL
Railcar Placed at Destination Facility 11/02/2011 02:00 PM CDT Rolla, CO
Unloaded From Railcar 11/02/2011 11:00 PM CDT Rolla, CO

Have some fun and pass the time (and drive yourself crazy in anticipation). Use jeep.com to search new inventory and get some VIN numbers, especially at your dealer, and you will have a good idea of the actual journeys.

I would say you are correct, but those are chrysler terms not rail terms lol so I'm not positive......but it seems logical.

Mine doesn't either, I don't think Insight populates that field until I status. ND Rugby knows I bet.
