I hit KZ on 3/26, loaded on a railcar 4/2, train departure 4/3, arrived at distribution lot late night (Winston-Salem) 4/5, arrived at dealer late night 4/7, delivery 4/8.

So I sat in the yard for about a week and then had her in 5 days.

VOTS is usually a day behind. Since they run 2 shifts, if you hit frame late at night, the next morning it will show frame and you're probably already in trim or inspection, so the following day it'll update to Trim or shipment when you've been there for almost a day at that point.

Looks like it might be stuck in the yard, Ace. That's alright though, at least it's built!!

PCTiger90 Ok, so I ordered yesterday, got my VON from the dealer and went to VOTS login. It gives me a popup that reads "Invalid Login". So is there an amount if time I should wait for it to show up, or is this due to the dreaded post I read yesterday about VOTS possibly being redesigned and not available for orders after a certain date? Any ideas or inside information? I just want to make sure there were no issues with allocation or whatnot from the dealer since we are approaching the end of 2014 order windows.

carvebeast KZ today for me! What's a ballpark range for how long I'll be waiting to hop on a rail car? I know I definitely shouldn't expect to see movement until at least Monday due to the holiday...

I've sold my car and have been driving my mom's passat for 2 weeks and she gets back from Europe next Thursday. I'm not optimistic. Better dust off the bicycle.

This is frustrating...but will be worth it.

For those that know...how long should "I" status last?

Thanks!

I = unit built, pending final inspection

From information I've gathered, average time is 1-2 days. Unless you are pulled for 100% inspection. If that's the case then it could be much longer.

Not sure if I'm doing something wrong but this doesn't seem to work for me.

I was really surprised when the status said shipping. I called the other day and the woman from JEEP said it would take a few days for shipping. I am definitely NOT complaining though.

2014 JKU Copperhead Sport

Hi everyone!

Joining in on the waiting room. I've been hanging out in Club Copperhead for a while and decided to join this thread once I found it.

Here's my sordid story:

I live in Florida, so I figured I'd use Fields Jeep in Sanford to order my JKU. I wanted a Sport with AT and half doors as a blank canvas to express my inner jeepness with my build.

I had originally specified Amp'd, but changed my mind when I started seeing pics of Copperheads on here. I changed the color via email the day after I made my deposit, and asked for and received a confirmation. Apparently someone else other than my salesperson entered the order and didn't get the memo. I first found out about it when they emailed me the VINVISION sheet 3 weeks later because they had entered the wrong email for updates from Jeep. Sheesh! They tried to get it changed, but it was too late. By then it was in D1. So now the dealer is going to have to sell a stripped down Amp'd JKU Sport with half doors and auto transmission and no other options. Good luck with that!

At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter too much, because I'm still in my lease on my Mazda CX-9 until June, so it will save me at a month or two of double car payments.

So I've been passing the days by doing way too much shopping as a poor substitute. So far, here is my list of build items sitting in my shed:

Poison Spyder Brawler Mid Front Bumper
Poison Spyder Rockbrawler II Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier
Carolina Metal Masters Black Front Loop Grab Handles
Carolina Metal Masters Black Rear Loop Grab Handles
Poison Spyder Front Crusher Flares
Poison Spyder Rear Crusher Flares
Poison Spyder Frame Mounted Rocker Knockers
JW Speaker Black 8700 Evolution Headlights
Truck Lite Pulse Modulation Adapter Harness
Poison Spyder 2.5 inch Backup Lights
sPod 6 Switch Module w/ARB Compressor Harness
EVO Vacuum Pump Relocation Kit
Poison Spyder .75 inch LED Marker Lamp
Poison Spyder Zeon Winch Plates
Dynatrac ProRock 44 Unlimited Front with ARB Air Locker, Dynatrac Ball joints, 4.88 Gears, 1310 Yoke, RCV Shafts, Reid Racing Knuckles
Dynatrac ProRock 60 Rear with ARB Air Locker, 4.88 Gears, 1310 Yoke
ARB Twin Air Compressor
Carolina Metal Masters Air Compressor Mount
Coast Front Drive Line
Coast Rear Drive Line
Warn Zeon 10-S Winch
Reese Tri-Ball Hitch with Hook
Rigid Industries Fog Light Kit
Rigid Industries D2 Fog Lights
60" Hi-Lift Jack
Dynomax Ultra Flo Stainless Steel Exhaust
Antenna X 13 inch Antenna
Goodyear Wrangler MT/R 37/12.5/17 Kevlar Tires
KMC XD Series 17 inch Addict Black Wheels
Spiderweb Shade Top
Metalcloak Game Changer 3.5 inch Lift 6-pack edition
Metalcloak Drag Link
Metalcloak Tie Rod
Metalcloak Back Seat Plate
Superchips Flashpaq
Wet Okole Seat Covers
Bestop Trektop NX Twill
EVO Rocker Panel Armor
Genesis Dual Battery Kit
Odyssey PC1500 Batteries x2
Rancho Rock Gear Tube Doors with Shade Skins

I think my Amex card has melted. My plans are to use it as my DD until it's paid off. Then it will become the third full time fun vehicle where I may take it to the next level. I definitely want to go out west and do Moab, the Rubicon, southwest Colorado, etc.

The dealership managed to get my email updated with Jeep, so I received my first email for the Copperhead on 3/31, which was probably late due to the the email mixup. I received my D1 notice on 4/2 and have been sitting there ever since. Hopefully I'll take delivery by mid-May. I have an event going on and was counting on having an extra vehicle for it.

Funny story. My friend lives in Portland, OR and unbeknownst to me just bought a 2014 JKU Sahara. He asked me what color I'd ordered and I told him Copperhead. He just laughed and said "Me too."

Looking forward to hanging out with everyone during this interminable wait.

See you on the other side!

Paul

That is the color we had a hard time deciding between it and Amp'd. Amp'd won out due to its lighter color thinking it won't show spots as much and its a little closer to my Detonator Yella that I drive.
You're right! I'll have to crack one tomorrow =]

Maybe that's why mine is sitting around waiting on a ride home.

ETA is still 4/28. I think that ETA gives it 4 days for the truck to bring it 200 miles and the dealer said it will not take that long. I'm hoping the 26th.
Today is my 12 week birthday
12 weeks.... When I see this it stops me from wanting to whine about my wait. I'm hoping at 12 weeks Mrs Yella will have figured out how to operate the radio.

Hmmm...does that mean I won't have to give her the spare key? If she doesn't like the color, she wouldn't want to be seen driving it, right? More 'wheel time' for me!!

Thanks 450mph. They held all of the Wrangerlers and Cherokees for some reason and shipped all of the big trucks out of the holding area. My sales guy was not happy other then hes getting all of his big trucks fast. So its been sitting in Utah for 5 days. I am supposed to hear what the ship date from there is tomorrow or so they say. Hoping soon. Hope yours arrives soon and doesn't sit around.
