Wonder how they were able to come up with the delivery window. Regardless, that’s great news. Fast turnaround.
If Jeep Chat they have a standard 2 week window from the day before you talk to them, then in a few days the two week window moves, and moves.

I"m thinking we'll see faster builds. Didn't they only start building the 21's in August? of course folks who ordered in June are going to have a long wait.
Remember, what you see on the forum and Crypto is less than 1% of all of their builds. Plus dealers are getting some priorty because they need them on the lots for lookers and buyers. Train availability will be going down for the next few months as grain is moved out of silos to make room for the new crops.

Leave to the Nebraskan to suggest that grain gets priority over my new Jeep. :)

Does Jeep offer courtesy deliveries to local dealers? You order at one dealership, but it gets delivered to a different dealer. I once ordered a car (not a Jeep) through a Florida dealer and had it delivered to a Colorado dealer. Worked great, and there were no extra delivery costs. I simply paid the "dealer prep" fees to the local dealer instead of the selling dealer. I say this because Jeeps are great, but not exactly a road trip favorite.

The sales managers I've talked with said it doesn't happen. They receive it, prep it and the customer can pay a transport company to bring it to your locale.

As you will soon discover, the JL is a game changer.
Heard plenty of reviews about this exactly, I’ve driven my JKU from Denver to Small town Minnesota plenty of times, getting my new 2 Dr Rubicon hopefully this week if not next (it’s being unloaded from train as of Monday AM). I am excited to slap on 1,400 miles and compare.

Early congrats! May I recommend turning off the screen while you drive your new Wrangler? If you need gps, use your phone. Nothing quite like being distraction free and taking in all the essence of the JL as you journey to where you need to go. Safe travels and happy Jeeping!!!!

A road trip without music? No thanks.

2021 Wrangler Sport S
First Post - Just ordered my JLU Sport S today from Koons in Tysons Corner (VA), so thanks to the Forum members for the recommendation and to Craig for making the process easy. Billet Silver with limited options other than dual top, automatic e-torque engine and technology group. Already have a list of after-market options to obtain / install, so looking forward to it. Would love recommendations on what people do with the wheels/tires that they swap out, as well as preference for 33" replacement tires/wheels, or point me to that post on the forum, as I am new here. Looking forward to Jeep Life.

Do the dealers have the ability to get more info than chat then?

They generally do. They have to have Rubicon VLS or something like it to track it once it leaves the factory. I have found it gets updated about as much as Jeep Chat recently....

Today is the two week ordering anniversary, so thought I'd check in with Jeep Chat to see what's going on. I got this message:

I am showing that at this time all of the materials needed to start the build process have been received. The vehicle should be entering the build process very soon.

This sounds encouraging.
