New to Jeep!
My daughter’s Jeep has been built and shipped. (Finally. We ordered 1/24.) It is now sitting at the railhead just over the state border. We have been waiting for over a week for a truck to drive it an hour to the dealer. Does anything in this process go smoothly or quickly? GRRrrrrr.....

HA! Well here I was bitching about lack of info, and just a moment ago I get an email. Skeptical, but at least it is something.

Scheduled – All of the materials needed to start the manufacturing build process have been received and the vehicle should be entering the build process very soon.

Our resources indicate your vehicle is estimated to begin production the week of June 18th.

You're not alone! Mine was ordered 1/27 and has been built since 5/7 and ready to ship (KZ) for over a week. As of this morning, there's still no ETA in the system. It's torture to know it's done and only 4.5 hrs away but I can't do anything about it. :(

NICE, happy for you as well!:clap::like:
My build is pretty close to yours except i have a MT and leather seats. Seeing I ordered 4 weeks prior to you it's obviously not the PST holding me up. I'm guessing the MT as opposed to the auto. Guessing it could be the color too ( i ordered white) but i wouldn't think that would be a hold up.
Either way its encouraging seeing PST's coming off the line :rock:

I had a POC from May 17 showing D1 with an estimated ship date of June 2.
I called the dealer this morning to check for updates.
Good news! It is built and released by the factory.. Now waiting on transportation..

Sport S in Billet
6 SPD, regular soft top
Anti spin
Cold weather
Tow

Ordered Jan 17
Located in London, Ontario
Only 3 hrs from Toledo, so hope it gets on a truck soon.

Just curious.. How long before the build shows on cryptostickers?

After nearly 3 months since my order, and all the discussion about how bad jeep chat is, they were the first ones to confirm for me that my 2 door has started the build today, and is in G status.... Go figure

dave powers: today is the estimated build date for my wrangler. i'd like to check in for an update on whether it has gone from D1 to E status and is starting frame paint build today
chatAgent.png
Mitchell: I can certainly take a look Dave! Congratulations on the new order!

dave powers: thanks

dave powers: hope you are having a great day today
chatEndUserMessage.png
dave powers: do you need my order date?
chatEndUserMessage.png
dave powers: address?
chatEndUserMessage.png
dave powers: vin?
chatAgent.png
Mitchell: I have the VIN, it would be helpful to confirm the address.
chatAgent.png
Mitchell: Thanks for that! Looking in on the vehicle order we are moving through the building processes now! We are at the Trim station and the completed vehicle should be ready in the next day or so.
chatEndUserMessage.png
dave powers: it's in trim? what letter code is that?
chatAgent.png
Mitchell: Correct! That would be G status.
chatEndUserMessage.png
dave powers: excellent. thank you very much

UPDATED: Received email from nicole this morning confirming "trim" status.
JG still shows D1, crypto as would be expected no build found

2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Sport 04Chevy 2500HD/ duramax, Yamaha Royal Star Venture
New Buyer Share of Garage TDM Offer (43CH1C)

Has anyone received this coupon for this offer? I went to Jeep chat and they did not know anything and sent me to the incentives group. They did give me the number to call and the incentives group could not tell me anything about the offer either. When I told them it applied to the new Wrangler JL she said " We don't ever have any offers on the Wranglers". As usual the help is no help at all!
If you have a coupon or know how to get one it's worth a $500 savings.

I hear ya, and it’s not like I NEED a Jeep right now. What pisses me off is the complete lack of info. But as you say I need to let it go, the clowns at FCA obviously have no idea when a vehicle will be built.
The only accurate info I get is from this forum. The only accurate info I get about the Jeep I ordered is from my dealer. I confess I have never emailed or called the 800# because I just read what you guys have to say. The folks here are definitely more up to date and actually give a poop. I have never gotten that impression from FCA.

I have seen that offer on the dealerships' websites.

nope... But, glad to hear you are that much closer to taking delivery. Hopefully, the delivery at the dealership will be smooth and you folks will drive out of their happy and smiling!
