Ordered BFG Sahara on 2/04, received the VON email on 2/17.

Have been in "Production Scheduled" ever since.

The dealer told me expect it in 4-6 weeks so that puts me in mid-March so I have a few more weeks to wait.

Hopefully I will get an update...soon.

JKR - tread lightly discount 1% under invoice I believe that including delivery but pre tax and misc dealer fees about $33.4K , which actually makes me think, I can get a fully loaded X3 for $42K, but then again it's not a Jeep!

I placed my order for a 2012 JKUR Winter Chill on 2/4, received my first e-mail on 2/10, dealership gave me the VIN on 2/13 and then received my second e-mail on 2/17. I've called IAMJEEP several times and the only thing they can tell me is that production is scheduled with no possible completion or ship date. I was just curious after reading different threads if the JKUR builds are possibly delayed? I'm asking based on orders that have been placed weeks after and a possible shipping date has been given. The waiting is so hard

Wow! That's a long wait. It must be driving you crazy at this point.

I got the second email "Production Scheduled" today - even though it has been "Production Scheduled" on VOTS for a couple weeks.

Tick, Tock...

I call Jeep to check on mine but they did not have any other update than "Production Scheduled." The wait continues....

Zactly a month today since ordering. Very very difficult process indeed. While I like to think I am nonplussed (having had Jeep for 22 years, plus still driving a 6 month old 2011), totally find myself slowly but surely becoming "anxious"

Even went out today on the last day of a 50% sale off at my favorite hardwarwe store and bought a cordless drill/driver for the Jeep, something I have no use for otherwise.

Pathetic really, like an expectant father, buying clothing and toys for a yet to be born child.

Just a quick update to this thread for all of those who were waiting for February. Here is my story from start-to-finish:

Wrangler: Sahara Unlimited, 6-speed, leather, 730N, side bags, connectivity, auto-temp, dual top.

Ordered: 1/29/2012
1st Email from Jeep (order received): 1/31/2012
2nd Email from Jeep (with VIN): 2/2/2012
Listed as "Production Scheduled" on VOTS for the next week.
Called IAM-JEEP on 2/9. Estimate Ship: 2/18 per the customer rep.
VOTS Frame: 2/17/2012
VOTS Shipped: 2/19/2012
Shipped E-mail:" 2/19/2012
Arrived @ Dealer (Massachusetts): 2/27/2012
Drove Home: 2/29/2012

Exactly 30 days from order entry to driving home. Could have been 28 if I got to the dealer this past Monday.

The sales manager walked over to me and said that of all the Wranglers he has ordered in a decade, mine came the fastest he has ever seen. He said he has two others who ordered before me still waiting for it to get built.

My point: It's all in how you hit the build cycle. Timing is key, but also a big unknown. For me, Jeep must have been ready to finalize a build production for the cherry six-speed unlimited right when I placed my order.

Ordered a Rubicon today in Winter Chill.

The dealer told me that orders are sometimes held until they get a group of one color and then run that color all at once. I get that. I’m in manufacturing, and we do it all the time, scheduling "like" product I mean. For instance, Europe’s orders have really dropped off, so we hold those orders until they build up and then we have a massive 50Hz day on the assembly line. Makes sense for a lot of reasons.

This will produce a long string which will include two important pieces of information, your production status and VIN.

Props to the hacker in the Gecko waiting room for this code.

build

hi, the wait can feel a bit long, my jeep took a few days short of
8 weeks, so you are a few weeks away, pick it up during the day and
do a walk around, also check all doors, some of them come in with door
blems (defect) stamp. this can be fixed with NO need to paint door. check that all of ur options are on window sheet. ask for a few oil
changes and a full tank also good! have fun, I have had zero problems
and wish you all the best.... cherry red with a bunch of good
options.

I called IAMJEEP yesterday and I have a ship date of 3/6 but they didn't think that was happening since the Jeep hasn't been built yet and there is no date as to when that will happen. I placed my order 2/4

The dealer just called this afternoon. He says my Rubicon will be in Monday. The long wait may finally be over.
