Got my Jeep on Friday! Ordered on 2/26. I absolutely love this beauty! Definitely worth the wait! Thank you to all of you for keeping me informed and amused over the past 4 months!

The only problem I’ve had is the steering. Driving it the 25 miles home it was wandering left and right and hard to keep in my lane. So, as this thread has taught me, I immediately lowered the tire pressure from 45 to 35 and the problem is mostly gone. So much fun to drive now!

i was sure i didn't want white and black. the more i see the white with the black hood and fenders as contrast, the more i like it....probably my 3rd favorite. i'll go granite, billet, white, then firecracker.........

I saw a black 2 door JL with painted black hardtop, and thought it was the most bland JL I had seen.

As I say, life's too short for fun vehicles painted in boring colors. :)

it's a really nice looking blue.... almost purple.... i loved the punkn also but was pretty sure they wouldn't stay as nice looking as they were on the day of purchase, and also it's so in your face. i've got a phoenix orange range rover and a red fiat spider. that's their job. i want my jeep to be a bit more subtle and not draw attention. i'll daily drive it into juarez

Just pulled the trigger! Rubicon is on order. Now the wait begins. :fingerscrossed: :jk:
What is your build? I hope you didn't order LED's as they are holding up my order at the present time. Dealer says we have to wait till after the next allocation to get a VIN.

Well this day has been kinda craptastic. No love from jg, took my car in for appraisal at dealership and was told she would send me the value along with updated POC in an hour, that was 5 hours ago......

Then to top it off some new guy at work took the sammich I wanted from the deli tray, so I had to go with my second choice. It tasted like bitterness and disappointment. Now I need to find out who he is and have my QA team make his life a living hell.

You are only 4 days into an order. Your dealer is blowing smoke. You should
have a VON at time of purchase and a VIN 3 to 5 days. We all did. Months ago
the LED story passed around this thread. I never believed it.

it's a pretty bad feeling D1, especially when JG shows basically nothing..... at least you have high hopes of changing today or tomorrow. and it was just over a month and a half for you. closer to 3 for me. i remember the feeling. frustrating... at least if they start the build i know things are moving... coming soon my friend, coming soon. you will fly through E, F, G to I by thursday i think, hopefully JB

I always liked blue but then close to 30 yrs ago I met a young gal who really liked blue, been stuck with it ever since...I mean the blue, I married the gal! :involve:

GC Overland is blue, Motorhome is blue, 3000gt is blue, Yamaha is blue, old JK was blue, new JL is blue. House and garages are not blue, have to draw a line somewhere. :giggle:

I have heard that 'allocation' story before but I am almost positive that is their allocation for dealer orders, not for SOLD orders, which yours should be. If they can't order it, someone can.

As for the LEDs, they look awesome, it is one of my favorite things on my JL!

Clif,
While I don't discount what you're saying, I've attached my POC. The blacked out line are the LED's which it says are restricted. Should I get a VIN anyway?

Wow that is great ! Did your window sticker have your name on it ?
I maybe wrong but these quick orders may be just what you wanted
coming off the line and Jeep is filling orders. Yes the custom orders
will take longer.
Yes, my window sticker had my name on it.
