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!!

Paylor 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.

https://www.jeep.com/vots/VOTSServle...59435035660863

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.

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.

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.
I took the freedom tops off 2 days after I got it, and it didn't rain until after that. At first I thought maybe I did something wrong, but I took extra care whenever reinstalling, and had a feeling something might be up.

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.

The goal in doing this is to confirm your exact status as the VOTS website doesn't give you this info. D vs D1 vs E, etc.
Thank You guys for the info. I did check and found out the status my dealer told me was True its D1.

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:

Quote:

1. Press F12 (developer tools)
2. Click on the Network tab
3. Click the "Start Capture" button
4. Press F5 (refresh)
5. Find and select /vots/VOTSServlet?
6. Click on "Go to detailed view" button
7. Voila
1. Open your vehicle page in VOTS.
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!
