Great thread! I currently drive a 2 dr Rubicon. I know off topic, but I decided to trade for a TrackHawk. Ordered on 4/7. Dealer said order was accepted but not scheduled for build, so I guess I am in BX. Here's the part that applies to this thread: He said he had a sold 392 Wrangler order that took 5 weeks to obtain a VIN. When he finally got a VIN the Wrangler was built and shipped in one week. So, anything is possible!
I ordered and Track Hawk back in 2019. Took just under 5 weeks from order to my butt sitting in the drivers seat. I've owned a lot of cars, Shelby GT500s, Raptors, Supra and hands down the Track Hawk is the best, most powerful and the funnest car I've ever driven

Just got off Jeep chat and received this:

" Thank you so much for holding, there are updates pending on your order that must be discussed and reviewed directly with your ordering dealership. Please contact your selling dealership for more information. "

I will contact my sales manager and see what he says. This chat is making me a little nervous.
I got the same response earlier this week. Still no word from my sales manager, his rep, or the "big guys" above him. Reading @REBEL JT 's Autoblog link gives me hope my issued VIN will be built even though it's in BX by "finding a way to move some" Hemi's. That article also gives me concern this is only limited to the 2021 model due to "the emissions regulations scheduled to come into effect nationwide for the 2022 model year".

Yes totally concerned regarding the emissions regulations scheduled to come in 2022. What is that all about? No more v8s? What about other hemi powered vehicles?

Tesla X, Corvette Grand Sport, Toyota Tundra. Ordering 392...
I spoke to my dealer this morning and this is what they are being told. The plant is still recovering from the COVID (maybe an excuse I know). The shifts are working on reduced staff. Inspections are taking longer because the inspectors are being pulled to work the line.

As far as the emissions standard thing goes. I noticed they are producing about 10 times the number of 4XEs to 392s. Someone who works on the line told me that yesterday they put out 5 x 392s and 100 4Xes. So 20 times yesterday but they said it's normally about 5 to 1. This I believe it to meet their CAFE requirements. I think this because my dealer has 4Xes on the lot unsold.

My build timeline went like this:
11/21/20 ordered. MSRP $500 nr deposit.
Snazberry, One Touch, Tow package, Mats, Camera, Cargo org.

December BG – order has passed edit but not considered for scheduling
January. BX – good order available for scheduling
Feb 13th. D – firm schedule; number is assigned
April 8th D1 –gateline: plant has sequenced the unit for production,

Today still D1.

I only ordered mine Wednesday so I am just (over)thinking how early I can bug my dealer/Jeep Chat about a VIN.
