Not sure if anyone has seen this post on Reddit r/Jeep. Seems as if the OP on this post has some info on build dates of certain configurations of the JL, someone may benefit from being able to ask more questions on there.

Sorry if this information is already available on the forum. I have not been looking lately and just came across this today on Reddit.

James, is the delay on your vehicle being built due to the premium top? What is the premium top?

Yea I'm pretty sure that's the reason and the premium top is just heavier construction/grade/material/w extra Velcro/weather blocks-and folding mechanism upgrades

Congrats - at least you have a date - I ordered mine in early December, planned a May trip to Moab to break it in and still no build date - these guys are a mess
