Sounds good to me! I'm still waiting for my VONs to be recognized in VOTS. No emails from Jeep yet. Probably by the middle of next week.

Estimated Ship Date - 9/6

Hi All! I ordered my CG Unlimited Rubicon on 8/12. As of this morning I have email with my VIN, and my dealer emailed me this morning to say they've been notified that my Jeep has a tentative ship date of 9/6. I'm not sure how that can be right given the previous 9/4 start of production date for CG, but I sure hope it's true!

Where did the 9/4 date come from, and is it accurate? I heard that also, but you, fljeepleo and I all have received info that doesn't jive with that. fljeepleo and I ordered pretty much as soon as it was released and got build completion dates of 8/30 (iamjeep actually told me start build of 8/16 twice, but has been delayed since?)

I just want my Jeep! I now understand a little what my ex wife went through when I bought her a new Mini Countryman S... 8 month wait!

Hopefully the completion of 8/30 is accurate!

There is an article on allpar that says that production of Billet and Commando is scheduled to begin in September. September 4 just happens to be the first business day of September due to Labor Day the day before.

The 9/4 date came from Milous' original color availability list http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/201...ad-161113.html (first post). I hadn't seen any update to those dates, but the info we are all getting sure makes me hopeful we'll see our Jeeps sooner than expected!

I'll say this though, after looking at your dates RattleDog - if you ordered on Aug 7 (the first day available to order I think) and I ordered on 8/12 - that's five days later. So 8/30 completion for you, plus five business days is... 9/6, my estimated date. Coincidence? I hope not!

Good point! I ordered on the 6th, but it was late in the day (I ordered about an hour after it opened up, which was late in the afternoon). Still, it close enough to be plausible.

I was on the Jeep site and you can now build/price a 2013 Wrangler. The Billet Silver (which also has a production date of 9/4) is now listed, but the Commando Green is not. Strange - I think Jeep just wants to see how many people will order this color site unseen.

I ordered my CG JKUR on 8/10 and just received my VIN in the email today. I thought I would call I am Jeep and they said that my estimated ship date was 9/5. Looks like the dealer got my order in at 1400 on the 10th so it appears it made it through the system that day.

Shipping on 9/5 would make me VERY happy!!

I am in a similar situation. I ordered a Commando Green on 15 Aug. My shipping date is currently listed as 5 Sept and is due to arrive via rail to Georgia on 12 Sept.

While I realize these dates are all tentative, does this mean that CG production is starting prior to the 4th of September or does it mean that all of us early CG orderers are getting the day after Labor Day production jeeps?

Hopefully, I'm thinking that this means that my manual transmission didn't push me back into the next allocation month.

Hey Guys, I got my Sahara CG ordered on 2012/08/04 and was given a VON but no word on VIN yet.
I am in Canada and my Dealer said it is in "C" status and that is all he could tell me.
Does any one know how to track orders in Canada or get a VIN??? If I get the VIN is it possible for someone in the U.S. to track it???? I have tried both IAMJEEP (was told no infor try a canadian version.....looked but does not exisit from what I have found) and VOTS tells me invaild name or number.


Thanks

I also ordered my commando Green and received an e-mail saying the maker was obtaining parts for my build. Not in a huge hurry however I did want to wait until I could see one in person. I decided to order anyway as I was afraid I would miss the chance if I did not.

I am curious if Commando is going to be a limited color like the Sahara Tan last year. Is anyone planning on waiting and if so does anyone know if Commando is planned for the remainder of the 2013 year?

I wouldn't sweat it too much. Jeeps sell like hotcakes, and if you end up not liking it the dealer will almost always give your $$$ back so he can sell it. Many dealers actually like this because they can sometimes receive "sold" orders when "stock" orders are unavailable or delayed.
So go ahead and order it, usually your only risk is having to deal with the wait/emails.

Yes, I called them and got the information. The Jeep rep said he had three systems he could look at. I think he said that this data came from the inventory system but I'm not sure if I remember that correctly.

I called today to add the Premium Soft Top to my build. Figured it's safe since I'm still in pre-production status.

So for those of you with estimated dates and build status codes (D1 and such), does that info come from VOTS once you get passed the production scheduled stage? I'm in production scheduled and I'm not getting any dates or codes from VOTS yet.

Hmm, I was in 'Production Scheduled', which I assume is pre-production stage. I tried to change my cloth seats to leather, and my rep said it wouldn't allow it. Was yours also in 'Production Scheduled' status when you changed it?

Good question. I would like to know as well. My CG JKUR is also in 'Production Scheduled' but I don't know where to get the actual date of production. Ordered 8/15, got my VIN 8/20.

All codes prior to D1 (including BX, C and D) will only come from the dealer or IAMJEEP. If you get the auto-email from Jeep, thats D1 and prob the most important one, since that means the factory has "its orders". The only thing the auto-email is going to give you is the generic names (frame, paint, ect.) and not the actual codes. You have to nag for those. I wouldn't sweat any codes after D1, cause it really won't matter after that. The only other important things are start build date, ship date and arrival date.

Thanks for the responses. I'm only a week in, so I'll hold off on the phone calls to IAMJEEP for now

Just ordered my CG Rubi today. I wish I could have wanted a color already in production, or heck, one off the lot!

I honestly can't wait to see a CG jeep.

The first two weeks have gone by pretty fast, but now it seems like every day is getting longer. I just ordered a Rock Krawler 2.5 lift kit. Now I just need my Jeep!!!
