Good to hear. 12 weeks is a long, long wait. Did you order anything special? Was it a 6 speed?

I ordered the 6 speed Rubicon w/black Katzkin seats 3 weeks ago. If I’m still waiting mid-May I’ll go nuts.

Please post pics of your Jeep & the Katzkin seats when you pick it up.

Still in Final Inspection. Crickets from Jeep and the dealer. It will be 7 weeks tomorrow since I signed at the dealer, who said 6-8 weeks. Really???? It better not be sitting a lot somewhere waiting for someone to get off their a$$ and put it on a truck.

My, Crush JK ordered on 2/3 just went into Final Inspection today!

From what I hear, the VOTS system is usually pretty slow to get updated which hopefully means that my Jeep is already on a train somewhere.

Truely California or bust!

I ordered a JKUR a week after you guys. Hopefully once they sneak mine into the same run once they start making Rubi's again.

Ordered a Rubicon 2/27 and have not received one e-mail yet. Spoke with the dealer last week and she gave me the von#. Hopefully my Rubi will here within 8 wks! The deal they gave me on my trade in is only good for 8 wks. They told me it usually takes 4-6 wks. After reading this im starting to get a little nervous!!

If my experience is any gauge, you'll be waiting a lot longer than 4-6 weeks. My Rubicon is taking close to four weeks now after it was built and went to final inspection.

Ordered 12/16
Finished being built 2/10 (Final Inspection phase)
Loaded on a railcar 2/22
Still waiting 3/5

12/16!!!!!!! UNACCEPTABLE. If it gets past 8 weeks, I'm going to start asking for additional options...like the MW3 black rims. At 12 weeks, I'd deamand the bumpers as well!!
In fact...I'll start holding my breath NOW!

I am going to make some calls tomorrow. I don't want to wait 12 weeks.

Just received my second email, but it doesn't say anything I didn't already know "scheduled for production"

JKUR BFG
Ordered: 2/13
1st email: 2/15
VIN/VON/schedule for production: 2/23
2nd email: 3/6

Not sure if them sending the email now means its going down the line or if there is just that much lag from when it first went into the "scheduled" state.

Wild guess:

1. Based on this tidbit from the one-off arctic paint job "March allocation opens on the 7th and final orders are due by the 15th"

Orders due by 15th may suggest all pending orders regardless of color commence the 15th thereafter. So all waiting for production to begin may see movement after the 15th?

similarly

2. Canada just extended their February 2000 dollar rebate to March and added an additional 1000 dollars. 3000 total. Lot of chatter that Canadian production is allocated for April. It would seem there's a drive to fill Canadian production by carrying over this February rebate and adding an additional 1000 dollars to it. Which again can make sense come end March and the end of the double bonus rebate,... April begins and so should all Canadian pending orders.

I was reading elsewhere that some Canadian orders placed Jan/Feb may only arrive in June !

Doesn't make sense to me if April is an alloted production period for Canadian orders plus this unusual rebate offering through Feb and March. Even saw an ad for the Arctic on TV last night, never seen one before.

Just got confirmation that build from Jeep that build was on 3/2, and now showing SHIPMENT in VOTS. From here on out the dealer has the most details about delivery.

I ordered my Black Unlimited Rubicon 6-speed on 2/18 and got my VON on 2/23. It still says "Production Scheduled", but I got a call from my local dealership saying it went to "D Status" last week. I called 877-IAMJEEP a few minutes ago and they couldn't even locate it in their system using my VON. She said this was the first time a customer had access to more information than her.

Not sure I understand your Message about Canadian Orders, however I ordered Feb 3 and I just got an update that it is in FRAME. I don't know when it will be shipped but has an estimated ship date of the 7th March.

The above just wild spec.

Interesting, I ordered 1st Feb, and still sitting with nothing more than the VON, even had Chrysler direct investigate and nothing doing yet.

Ordered a Rubicon, what did you order and whereabouts you at? Trying to pin down what up. Ordered through the largest dealer in ON. Either it's their monthly quota that is full, or Rubicons are collected up over time and put out all at once.

What you order and from what region?

p.s. don't forget to claim the March rebate once you're arrives (see the incentive thread).

Can't really determine a pattern from that, more options that mine. Doesn't appear to be a pattern to ordering and production so far.

Did you read the thread? I just spoke to the rebate HQ, you're entitiled to any month's rebate between the time of order and delivery. Not the month of order, or the month of taking delivery.

D means that it is scheduled for production and D1 means they have started on it I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong)

Put this link in replace the X's with your last name and replace where it says VONNUMBER with your VON number. It will give you the d o d1 as well as the VIN
