Dirty Bob I picked up my JKUR last night and so far it's all smiles for me. It felt great when my kids were going crazy over it when I pulled up. The neighbors came over for a walk around and all they could say was "It's Fu**ing Awesome :o) now tonight's forecast is snow and I'm ready to play!

We are in the same boat Bro. After sales will be an Afterthought, IMHO!
I ordered a Black JKUR, full load but I don't think that matters really. I've heard there will be a Canadian production run in Jan/Feb but I hope it's not that late.

I must say communication with my dealer has been less then disappointing to say the least.

nwsportsguy Finally - the wait is over! Got the call from the dealership and my Wrangler is being detailed as we speak. I'll be picking it up after work (and leaving a few hours early to boot!)...so excited!

oncewas Jeep arrived in Phoenix Sat. 31 and is slated to be at dealers in Casa Grande by the 9th. Then it has to be "preped". So we may have it by Feb. I've accepted the fact I'll get it when it's ready.

oakley Picked up mine on 11/30/11. Shopped around for 2 1/2 months. The wait was a killer. This is my first jeep.

After only a few weeks I got the upgrade fever. Lights, bumpers, wheels, lift. etc.

It never ends. the best part is the after market folks built parts that fit!!! what a novelty.

My hat goes off to all of you real jeepers who have helped and given non-biased advice...

I called my sales guy today and he said it's still in D1, but he also says it's scheduled to ship on January 4th!! I thought they took longer to build than that but ok I'm not complaining. Still, sounds like I'm looking more toward the end of January minimum to get it and I was hoping for by the 13th for my birthday weekend.

TIA
Ordered 12/6 & I think I received the first email in about a week - second came shortly thereafter. Now all I have from Jeep is an 'estimated' ship date of 12/28 (which has obviously passed) & no further indication as to when it will be built...

Matador From what I was told by both Jeep Customer Service and the dealer themselves, the Jeeps are shipped to a "disbursement" facility, a regional centralized location for several dealerships. From there, a transport truck is hired by several dealers to make several deliveries. As a result, the Jeep may sit in the disbursement facility for days, if not weeks, waiting for other dealers to get several orders together. Finally its then put on the trucker's schedule. Throw the holidays into the mix and between holiday black out days (This Fri., Sat., and Mon.) for the truckers themselves and the service departments that accept and prep the Jeeps. Deliveries won't happen until mid next week, if your lucky.

One other thing, this is across the board. My brother bought a 2011 Ford Explorer last night that is on the dealers lot but he won't be able to take delivery until Tue. because the service department is closed.

mjf232 Got a call today from the dealer who apologized that I wont be getting my Jeep tomorrow, 12/30. He said he's been tracking it and its in Maryland and I should have it by Wed. He said he's at the mercy of the truck driver. What makes me frustrated is I called I-AM-Jeep and they told me they have it sold to me on 12/16 and I have it already. And everytime I called Jeep I got a different eta date. WTF Jeep? Oh well, here's to a late xmas gift/new years present.

GCDMD Just got a call from the dealership, it's ready to roll!!! unfortunately, can't pick it up until after work due to our heavy workload today! The suspense is killing me!
12-29-2011 06:10 PM
kerryva The wait to get a VIN (or confirmation that they have an order) is killing me! I ordered my Rubicon JK on 12/12 and got my VON, but after calling JEEP customer service today, still do not have a VIN (or anything else). I love hearing that they don't have anything in their system, but having a VON is a good thing (really, what does a VON do if JEEP can't even tell me they have a record of my order)...
12-29-2011 04:03 PM
Dirty Bob Although I'm waiting patiently for my JKUR to be built for the last month (ordered on 11/29), it is almost comical at the responses you get from Jeep. Each time I call I get a different story, which is better than the no response from the dealer. Today I called and they told me my Jeep is scheduled for delivery today although it is not built yet :o)
12-29-2011 04:57 AM
anweiler71 I finally just got my JKU Rubicon after waiting since the beginning of November. It was very much worth the wait, but the anticipation and stress was almost unbearable! The people at Jeep are informative when you call most of the time, but sometimes vague and sometimes incorrect. The VOTS tracking system updates pretty well, but sometimes doesn't change as quickly as it could. Overall, just don't let it get the best of you and when your Jeep gets here, you will forget all of the stress!
12-27-2011 06:42 PM
Knobdy Got an email from the dealer saying that it looks like it will be delivered on 1/4. What is funny is that I called up the Jeep hotline earlier and was told that it might be there at the end of the week....

The wait is torture.
12-27-2011 04:50 PM
GCDMD My stealership is killing me. They said an initial delivery date of late November, then early december, then 12-21, then 12-27 last week.....now it might be into January. It has been waiting for the delivery truck for nearly 2 weeks, the salesman says nobody is driving the trucks the week of Christmas. Damn...
12-24-2011 03:20 AM
flyinion Ugh the wait is really bad for me now. At least back in November I had put my order in and just knew it was going to start getting built sometime after the 1st of Dec. Called the dealer on Thursday and it started getting built on the 21st last Wednesday and I know it takes 5-7 days to build. So now I know it's coming soon and that makes it even worse lol.
12-22-2011 08:27 AM
FauxPas I originally ordered my BFG JKUR on October 4rth and I just took delivery of it on December 13th. Third time Jeep'r so while the wait was killing me, I knew what to look forward to. All in all, the folks in this forum helped me through the wait. Good luck to the rest of you and I hope you love your Jeep as much as I love mine!
