Oh and I’m in Maryland, and last week (Friday Sept 11) the status still was “parts have been gathered and it’s awaiting the build”, Monday sept 14 it was in paint and today it’s at the dealership. Just to give you an idea how quickly things moved :)
I think it's safe to say that Jeep Chat's status updates are to be taken with a grain of salt.

Sorry guys, yes ordered aug 10. I hope you get yours soon too!! Where do you live that it's in that status so long? Ohio isn't far from Md so it only took overnight to get here.
I ordered the same day and, as of Tuesday, it was passing through Illinois. Is your Jeep reportedly moving, or just "in transit" (which arguably could be sitting in a parking lot in Toledo).

Have we had our first diesel delivery yet?
I'm in KS. Mine ramped from the rail yard to a waiting area in KCMO Monday ... my understanding it's waiting on a truck to get a couple hours south ...

My 2 Door is also in KS status per dealer text yesterday. I didn't see KS on Nerubi's order status guide. Anyone know what this status is? Thanks

Dealership notified me it was delivered from rail-yard an hour ago and is in PDI(Pre Delivery Inspection). Heading there at 4:00pm MST to pick it up :)

If anyone wants a Stock Rubicon Intake and or Exhaust and lives near Denver, they're free if you'd like.

I believe that I may have mentioned this before. In 2016, when I ordered my JK, there was a service offered by another website that had a tracking product. For $25 you could track your order online from order to delivery - right down to the railroad stations as they were passed. It was almost like having a GPS transmitter attached to your Jeep.

My wife ordered a Mini about ten years ago. She was even able to get a screen shot of her freighter moving through the Panama Canal.

I think that Jeep is missing a revenue opportunity here. Plus, I suspect that the staffing at Jeep Chat could be reduced. But, more importantly, would be the customer satisfaction created.

Absolutely. And with today’s technology, there is no reason not to have a “GoPro” set up at every major station at Toledo North that would snap a pic of your Jeep as it progressed down the line. Offer it as an upgrade when ordering, I’d pay $200 for that.

Tell him to go and look in Rubicon VLS or talk to his manager. They can definitely track it. Not everyone may have access. This is where making friends with the sales manager and GM and even the shop manager is beneficial.

Did my two things I wanted right away. The difference between my old JKU and this is night and day! You’ll all get yours eventually! :)
