Our resources indicate your vehicle was ordered with the Premium Sunrider Soft Top. Two-Door Wranglers ordered with this top are anticipated to begin production in mid-May. Our systems show your vehicle is estimated to begin production in mid/late-June. Please keep in mind as this timing is projected, it is subject to change. I will continue to track the status of your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon order & will provide any updates as they become available. The All-New Wrangler is an epic evolution, where design and technology take a giant leap forward. This Wrangler surges ahead, bringing with it the spirit of freedom and a passion for adventure. We appreciate your patience as we launch this exciting new product. Sincerely, Nicole Jeep Product Information Center

Kind of a bummer, I ordered in February and I get to wait a month from the time they start to have mine start :(

Info from the new phone number. Since I was in d1 for over 60 days they give me a case number with biweekly updates to my email.
Looks like they added a few new slogans at the end. That’s new...

Spoke with JeepCallInLine again to see if system was up. Girl took my info and said "you've been in D for 70 days, that is a really long time, I'll escalate to see what is taking so long". She also reiterated that any customer can seek compensation, but it has to be after delivery, which seems obvious.
Please be advised, escalation just means in a day or two you will receive an email telling you an "estimate" on your Wrangler's production . . . if you are lucky. Search recent posts in this thread and you will see the exact email that you are soon to receive. In other words, nothing meaningful but more vague placating by FCA/FCK.

Ordered 5/1/18: JL Rubi/White/Auto/Painted Hardtop/Painted Fenders/LED/Black Leather/Alpine Audio
Taking a look at orey22's fresh Rubi...

-Are the rock rails the same as the Moab concept (see picture) or are they more narrow?
-There seems to be a blueish tint on the front windows..is that just the photo or is there a factory tint?

Also curious if anyone stores their two door hardtop in a place other than their garage or shed? I'm looking to find a good solution since I'm in an apartment - might just turn it on its side and bring it in

Might need to vinyl wrap my Jeep in Nacho when I get bored of the white in a few years...damn it looks good

I know. I ordered 1/8 and didn't leave D until 4/9. What's positive is that, for the first time, I'm seeing signs of a major 2dr production increase. I recognize that the following is somewhat anecdotal, but the number of window stickers for 2drs reported on the cryptostickers site has doubled in just the last 24 hours. Further, where there was just one 2dr in build status on the spreadsheet at the start of the week, there are now ten. Things are happening.
Warc1, can you please provide a link to this spreadsheet, seem to have displaced mine.

thank you,

The Nacho has the Mopar Performance Rails, orey22’s are definetly the standard Rubicon rails.

The front windows have a laminate/tint.

So, with all the delays on 2018 jeeps. What are the thoughts on 2019 release of JLs and JLUs? I'm just curious to know how may months my new jeep will be a "new" jeep. And, will FCA be delayed building 2019s for a late release of those too? I wonder...

I need those MOPAR Performance Rails on the Nacho 2 door. Soooo NEED.

Also breaking news . . . don't flame me . . . I am buying an absolute base JLU Sport. I will keep my JLR order and see what happens but, YES, I am rewarding FCA/FCK for its very bad behavior. In the end though, I just need the top off and to hit the rocks with my 18 year old daughter at Palo Duro Jeep Jamboree this month!!!

The only option, anti-spin/upgraded rear axle. That's it. A sub $30k purchase and I am installing lift with Rubi takeoffs and a cb (the cb is required for Jeep Jamboree).

A suggestion--would renting a Jeep be possible? You'd still get to enjoy the event, topless and all!

Yeah, I have read them. I was just providing the info I received. My dealer told me estimated May 28 build. Not sure if that means built-by, or build start. that is for a 2/23 order.
