Not sure this helps.. however, I was told that once they assign the VIN number, it is going or is about to go into 'production' status. This means that the parts are being allocated and its all been set up to make the thing. I was told by the U.S. customer service (who have some half decently accurate info. as opposed to Canadian customer service) that once its in production I would see it in 4 to 6 weeks.
As it turned out, it was delivered in 4 weeks... the dealer was surprised to get it in as they told me they had no prior warning or information.
So, if you know when it went into production you should have it in 4 to 6 weeks... my guess is that the shipping time varies a lot due to the priority of the trucker and when they are going to be delivering other vehicles in your area.. maybe 1 to 2 weeks ?

My dealer was not very familiar with the vehicle, so I have been self learning over the last few days.. and so far!!! no problems with it.. about to put snows on this week.

delivery

My Rubicon is finally shipped and will be at the dealers exactly 3 months after ordering.

Mulmur By way of update on my 2013 billet Sahara... I got a call this morning from the dealer to say it was built, but had not shipped yet.. might see it in 2 weeks or so.
Later today they called to say it arrived on their lot at noon, unexpected?? Yes, the communication is really poor all around, up here in Canada with Chrysler.
Anyway, the thing is finally here after 14 weeks, so I can pick it up in the next day or two.

For those interested, I have seen on other sites that those who want Gorilla Guard security wheel locks, which are supposed to be superior to the mopar ones, often order 2 sets of 4, as with the spare we need 5. I phoned Gorilla and they told me they now have a set of 5 available. The set of 4 for Jeep is part # 61681, according to Gorilla, and if you want the 5 its part #61681B5. I suspect most of the retailers do not know this as it was news to Summit Racing when I tried to order them on-line and had to phone them to dig this part # up. Hopefully they will fit ok..

Anyone else still waiting.... I hope you get a positive surprise call as well.. it is really far too long to wait for a car to be delivered !!

Well my Jeep is on its way but I can honestly say that if I wasn't totally in love with Jeeps, based off the customer service I've gotten from their dealership and Chrysler Canada I would NEVER buy one of their products.
Get this...I was at a local dealership because I kind of know one of the sales guys there....same thing knew very little about available colours etc. The dealership did not have a 2013 4 door on the lot for a test ride, so I told him what I was looking for Dozer Sahara and I listed the options. This is the good part....I drove by the dealership the other day and what do I see on the lot a 2013 Dozer Rubi!
Didn't get a call an email or anything. It's like they dont want to sell you a car..I would not have bought it from them because of the take it or leave it pricing...but they didn't know that.

The customer information available in Canada regarding Jeep deliver is really poor.. in the USA they get more of a 'play by play' and they certainly do get faster delivery than we do here.
Agree dealers should be more honest about the wait times of often 14 to 18 weeks from what I can see and have experienced.
I mentioned on another site that the IAMJEEP customer number/service in the U.S. was helpful when I called the first time as they confirmed my production status as of the end of October.. and said to call back mid-november.. when I called back I made the mistake of saying I was canadian and they quickly told me they could not talk to me about the order and in canada they want us to go through the dealer?? They also gave me the canadian customer number but added that I would have to go through about 5 minutes of 'prompts' to get to speak to someone.. (and they were correct) and that the information that the canadian customer service group has, is (in so many words) useless... and I can confirm that is true as well.

Damn, that's some bad news, ordered the same color 2 days before you, but haven't hear from my dealer yet, so either I got lucky and made it into the last batch or my dealer is just doing a bad job

I'll pay my dealer a visit Wednesday, let you guys know what's happening

MacGruber Dealer just emailed me this afternoon.. Jeep is here! Pick up on Saturday.

Aug. 16 order - Est ship date Oct 23.. delivery Nov 17
11-14-2012 05:36 PM
MacGruber Ordered mid-august, last real update I got was an estimated ship date of Oct 23rd. Dealer says it should be here mid-month but won't offer up any more than that. Hopefully any day now but honestly can't be surprised if it takes another week or so.. they seems to have no ability to offer any real tracking info.
11-14-2012 08:58 AM
Dinospine Got a call yesterday stating that my Jeep (ordered mid-august) was put into production finally!

Good news, I hope you get the vehicle before the end of the month. From reading other Jeep forums, it seems that they section off periods of time to build certain colours a/o vehicles for different countries and as well, the dealers that sell the most get preferred build timing and that customer order vehicles do not get preference over dealer orders for their lots.. its just based on number of total orders by dealer. ??
Looks like you will have yours in 10 weeks or less.. so far I'm apparently looking at 18 or so weeks for mine. I ordered from Blue Mountain chrslyer in Collingwood ontario and I believe they sell a fair number, but not likely as many as some dealers in Toronto.
I'm going to call IAMJEEP customer service next week to try and get an update, they can usually give you some idea, but according to others its not terribly accurate. Maybe it will be sooner than they first advised me.

Was wondering what others are experiencing.

Jeep_88 I have got Braby Motors in Salmon Arm and Jim Pattison in Surrey down to 2% below invoice so you can use that as a benchmark.
