2014 JKU Copperhead Sport
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:

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!

To further skip the cruft of the VOTS interface, you can just call-up the "secret" json data directly:
Replace "YOUR_LAST_NAME" with your last name, and LAST_8_OF_VIN with... you guessed it, your last 8 of VIN, then paste it into your browser's URL bar.
Ok, so it's impossible to not have the board automatically make that an embedded URL. Just right-click the link, and copy it. Then paste it into the URL bar and make the necessary changes.

I got a estimated delivery date of may 19th
But I'll believe that when it gets here

I switched to the brand new premium soft top on Sunday. It POURED tuesday, and the front carpets and front door panels were SOAKED. Dealer is replacing both front door seals, and I should have it back tomorrow.
Oh well, life goes on.

As promised! The 2nd Dolly of the week for the hard top
Took a few hours today! 2nd one I built this week (1st one was for my Dad).
Simple and awesome. Gotta rep the site

You're right, didn't leak at all when I took it off. I had a pucker moment on Tuesday with my hard top in the backyard with 50mph gusts while I was at work. I figured it would be getting lift and leaving. It was just fine though.

LEAKING! That's no good. You know if you take the top off it wont leak at all

Firefox users on Mac
I think someone already did a post about the "magic trick" on Firefox (& I'm using a Mac) but I couldn't find it—if you've already managed to do the trick in Firefox, move along, nothing to see here—I'm just posting this in case anyone is like me & still in the dark about how to do it. When I saw this post about Internet Explorer I managed to figure it out:
2. Click "tools" at the top of your screen.
3. Toggle down to "web developer" & click it.
4. Toggle down to "network" & click it.
5. Refresh the page (command + R is the shortcut on Mac).
6. In the window that appears on the bottom 1/3 of the page, on the left, scroll down until you see "VOTSServlet?firstname=&lastname="(your last name will appear here in CAPS)
7. Now in the window on the bottom 1/3 of the page on the right, click the "Response" tab.
8. A single line of text appears: it stretches for a long way past what you can see, so you have to start scrolling to the right. Almost immediately you will see "Production Scheduled","cStatus": After that colon will be your status—for me it's D1 (yea!) which I didn't yet know, not having gotten a 2nd email from Jeep yet.
If you keep scrolling to the right you'll see all the details about your particular order. That's where you'll get your full VIN.
Hope this helps.
And of course, I will now update my signature!
