That should put it up one more day for me as well, the 9th!! The wait is killing me!! My dealer called today to let me know all my parts are in for install, and to get final approval for tire choice. Once it is at dealer, it will take about a week for "final" additions to be installed, so I should have it around the 20th to drive.

Shouldn't everybody in the February Waiting Room now be camping out in the April Waiting Room? Y'all are just living in the past!

Yeah, kind of confused.... Is the Feb waiting room for those that ordered in Feb & are waiting for a March/April delivery or for those that expect to take delivery in Feb?

I always thought the former until Feb posters jummped ship to the March thread .... suppose they will likely jump to the April thread once it gets posted.

We don't know what were doing. We're all just wondering around these forums, lost, with no jeep to take us where we need to be. We're desperately waiting for our orders to arrive and we are willing to post in whatever waiting room cares to listen to us complain about VOTS and Jeep CS.lol

Your right about that. Jeep CS don't have a clue. I spoke with them today and the girl told me my Jeep had made it to Port Allen, LA, was offloaded from the rail and was on a truck waiting to be delivered. At first I was excited, then I did the math. I said thank you, hung up and called right back. I then spoke with a different person who informed me that my Jeep was in Illinois and would arrive in Port Allen on 4/7. The second call made more sense. I even asked on the first call for the girl to double check her information. UPS can track a small package from point A to point B with precision, but Jeep can't track a vehicle. Go figure. I should be in my Jeep this time next week.

awesome, window sticker has generated, interesting that it works for Canadian orders. I've got a feeling that mine was most likely in the same batch of rubicons that were scheduled to get shipped on the 1st. thinking i might be seeing it at the dealer next week but no way to tell for sure. gotta love how a simple imaginary line removes all tracking ability of some vehicles that share the same assembly lines.

too true.

I called again -- and my JKU in all is illustrious Gecko-ness and half-door glory was loaded on to a train today. Now I can't help but imagine it sitting in a siding somewhere getting run around by rock/lumber/Z/hopper trains, etc.

Don't expect it here until the 17th now. Two more weeks to go!!!

Does anyone know the salesman let other people test drive the jeeps if you dont pick it up immediately? I kinda dont anyone else to touch Jeep so just to make sure I was going to make sure I was there during hour 1.

They do. Give them explicit instructions that no one is to drive your Jeep unless it is related to prepping it for delivery to you. Shouldn't be more than a couple of miles.

That seems incredibly rude. Do resturants let people lick your food before it arrives on your table?

Thanks for pointing that out. I'm not thrilled about someone else driving my baby before I even get there.

Ordered in Feb:
Wrangler JKU Sahara
Flame Red Clear Coat
6 Speed Manual
3.73 axle
Anti-spin rear differential
430N Media center
Heated leather seats
Trailer Tow Group
Body Colour Hardtop

I wish I knew about this thread sooner so I could have vented some frustration while waiting for my Jeep to be delivered. I ordered a JKU Sahara on Feb 20 and they told me just last week that it would start being built that Friday, Mar 30 . The dealership said that it should be here around the end of April. I was initially told it would be a 6 to 8 week wait, so I was definitely a little aggravated when a month had gone by with no progress on my order. The excuse I was given was the colour I wanted was not a common one they used. So they waited until they had a large enough order to build using this colour. At least it's finally on its way

My VOTS still shows that its in Trim. IAMJEEP said that all they know is that it shipped. My estimated delivery date was 4/9 as well, but I got a call last night and the dealer said it arrived early! Going to get it tonight. In my case the dealer was the only one who provided me with accurate information

I'm back to where I first posted when I ordered - 2/29. Talked to my dealer today - he said it would be unloaded tomorrow or Saturday and delivered to the dealership, that he'd install my 730N, and I could pick it up Tuesday evening!
