    Hey Team,
    Just updating a bit.
    Ordered on 12/5/17 with VIN and VON, and D status received a few days later.
    Checked with Jeep today, remains at D status.
    However the chat room did say, "Most orders are scheduled for build within 30 days after reaching this stage".
    Not sure just what that means, yet it does seem realistic given the order date combined with Jeep's 2 Door manufacturing scheduled to begin producing 2-Doors about mid February.
    2-Door, Hardtop, 6spd.
    That is all.....Hasta La Taco

    I spoke with chat last night and got the same response. I ordered a 2 door so I don't think the 30 day answer to be true

    I feel pretty confident that it is true... but only on models that are currently in production. As stated many times now, 2-doors don't even go into production until mid-Feb.

    Yeah that is why I don' think it is a good answer. How can a 2 door be 30 days out when they don't start for another 3 weeks

    Spoke to Jeep chat yesterday on my 2dr Rubi, soft top, manual, tech and tow group. My dealer told me I'm in D back on Dec 28 (ordered Dec 7), Jeep chat told me I'm still in D and to call back on Monday to get an update. I'm not optimistic.

    I’m in the same exact boat. I don’t expect to be out of D for at least another month. Production doesn’t start until 3/12.

    Thinking we’ll see a few D-1’s status’s start to appear in the first week of February.

    I’d wager a hefty sum that you aren’t getting a 2 door delivered on 2/6.

    2 Door Rubi ordered on Jan. 8 VIN received on 13th. Still in D status. I am like a kid at Christmas as well. Waiting and waiting and anxious to see someone with a 2 door move to D1! Updates very much appreciated!

    My dealer says Hardtops are "on Restriction" for my Very Basic 2 dr. All I want is Hardtop, A/C, Trailer Tow. Limited Slip. Sting Gray.
    This is a very poor Production start, hope the "quality" isn't as bad as this feeble beginning.

    What does that mean? He won’t let you place an order?

    Production for hard tops isn’t supposed to start for 2 week (2/12), but you should be able to order any time. I ordered a soft top on 12/23, and those don’t start production until 3/12.

    If he’s telling you that you can’t place an order I’d try another dealer. You can also try the asking suppprt using the chat feature on Jeep.com.

    Let us know what you find out!

    Thanks, the Hardtop is a must-have for me. I'll check back with him.
