Yup, Went D1 today.

Seems like Copperhead is on a fast track, my salesmen emailed me today to confirm this and said that it seems like copperheads are top priority right now since everyone that ordered last week from him are getting updates pretty quickly.

Don, Im sure you will get D1 status tomorrow

OK, dumb question: I've been checking VOTS but all I see for my Copperhead JKUR is "production scheduled." Is there a thread that describes the stages of D1, etc... and where are you seeing these status codes?
Thanks

I ordered on 9-11 and my Copperhead is also still in D status. My dealer told me when I ordered to expect 8 weeks wait time. Hopefully, he was padding that a little bit.

I'm sure her husband will deck it out with black accents. SHE wants a mall crawler and swears it won't go off-road, but Troy will never go for that!

Why waste the money putting on a lift and big tires if it's not going off-road?

She grew up to be too much of a girly girl. LOL

I can't wait to see what you do to yours, so I can tell them what they will need to do to theirs.

im definetly gonna go for new wheels,tires, and lift. im thinking that'll be more like next year tax time. this year im gonna start on a few small things. i like that rugged ridge hood protector. very affordable and looks good imo. probably i'll upgrade the entire sound system as well pioneer all around. we'll see though. im gonna try holding off on the mods until i actually get her, that will be tough

Thats my plan for my tax return too.

Im going to be picking up my rear tire carrier and probably my lift at the quadratec tent event since i get 10% off everything there then letting my wallet recover from my vehicle purchase and that for a while.

Ill also be doing small things here and there with her. CB is also going to be pretty quick!

The color just looks great in every shade of light, I like the dull look it has to it on cloudy days and when the sun hits it it just lights up, Incredible color!

However: this color should be treated as a "skittle color" and only be ordered with blackfenders/hardtop and black accents....pats JK is just too much with body color everything. another thing is NO CHROME

Don't get me wrong i don't think the color matched hard top looks half bad. at least on certain colors.... on the copperhead its oook, but exactly as you said abit much. this color will look EXCELLENT WITH BLACK exterior mods.

the fact that we finally seen a produced version of the wrangler in this color makes me happy. in my mind that means the factory SHOULD start cranking them out.

How does this color come? Preorder only??

My wife and are new 1st time Jeep owners, 2013 Commando Green JKU. It's my rig, but now she wants one. Just a two door, more girly she says. Which is ok by me, two Jeeps are better than one... We've been looking on line and following the 2013 close outs and the incoming 2014's and she LOVES the Copperhead color. We got our JKU off the lot. Being new to Jeeps, how does one get this Copperhead color? Is this a special order only? Or will Jeep be making this color as a special edition and they will show up on the dealer lots (as regular inventory, not a customer special order) and once gone, are gone for good? Or do they make this color a few times a year and are for regular inventory on dealer lots as well? I'm also confused by all these status codes (D and D1 and VIN). Where can we go here on the forum or on the web in general to learn about these codes and custom ordering a Copperhead JK? Thanks in advance.

Welcome!

In short: Copperhead is a regular color for this year, but duration of availability is notoriously unpredictable with Jeep.
Here's what to do:
1, join Tread Lightly.
2, go to the first post of this thread. Use that as a guide to build your JK. Write down what you want, the MSRP and invoice. Using the Affiliate Reward pricing you have access to via Tread Lightly, you can go to any dealer and order your Jeep at 1% below invoice with no haggling (you can do better if you really want).
2, wait impatiently. You will be assigned a VIN and can track your Jeep's progress. It lack thereof. D means it is scheduled, D1 means build is imminent (7-10 ish days). Then it gets built, may be in inspection, sitting on a lot, then shipped all the way to WA. I suggest you go out and play on the JKU to take your mind off the wait ; )

If you don't want to preorder, it will be on lots. But if you like it, why wait and hope for what you want to show up nearby?

For those of you waiting for "something to happen", production runs aren't based solely on color. They base it on other factors. They will do a run of Sport with manual transmission for instance. Or Rubicons. If you check for commonality of those who have just gotten an update, I think you will find a pattern.

Except the hood louver, cause I don't think the dealer would be to happy with 4 cut outs and a bunch of screw holes in the hood!! Lol

What front bumper do you have? I don't recognize it.

On top of all of this, finding one on the lot won't be easy, trust me I know from wanting an orange Jeep for a while with my specific wants. I ended up ordering. I would order sooner rather than later, because your dealership needs to have the allocation to do so. That allocation is also for any other special orders they would want to do, whether that means getting a hydro blue, crystal granite, etc. So the chances of finding it on a lot is slim to non unfortunately. When Crush orange was out, it only ran for a few months, I wanted to order it back in Feb. but it just became unavailable. Lucky I have my copperhead on the way now, which I like even more than crush! I wish I would have used Tread Lightly too, I only got mine right at invoice, but it was worth it to get the dealership's only allocation available for september. I'm a little impatient haha
