So, I ordered my Rubicon on 7/24. I initially was told it shipped on 9/15. Now I’m told it hasn’t. My salesperson is on vacation and Jeep Chat isn’t much help. I’ve not been given an eta either. Is it super tacky to call the dealership and ask them to give some sort of update?? I just want to know where it’s at, and given an idea of when to expect it.

If the salesman is on vacation go to the next in line, the sales manager. I think its okay to ask for a status update.

I would agree with this. Sales Manager or General Manager. They want high marks on the service they provide (survey/questionaire) and that shouldn't stop because your sales guy is out.

Ordered: 9/8
Vin: 9/18 received
Status as of 9/28: scheduling status but no date yet

Don’t know what that means exactly since it’s not an option in the sticky thread, but no dates for build yet. Will keep waiting...
I bet it's in D status. Jeep Chat never actually gave me a date on my build until 2 or 3 days after it had shipped.

Today its in trim!

Jeep chat has never given a date. I ask them once a week. Dealer didn't find out till Saturday that the build date was supposed to be today. I asked them every week as well. Always said it was blank.

2021 JL Rubicon (2 Door) ordered from Tuttle-Click in Irvine, CA through Rob Trachtman. 6speed manual with all options exc. Smoking. No Mopar add on.

9/25 Order Placed
9/28 VON received
9/30 VIN received
10/14 Sequence for build (Jeep chat)
10/16 Est. Build scheduled for 10/28 (dealer)

Seeing how fast things are moving, not sure why mine is taking so long.

Mine was ordered exactly 4 weeks ago today and is still not built.
I bet yours is built this week.

Just FYI, chat is still telling me it is scheduled to get to the dealership between 10/12 and 10/26. However, dealership says the latest update is still having the train arriving in Utah the 4th and 2-3 days on a truck to them.

Question for you guys.... how long does it normally take to get a truck to pick these up?

This is a very short haul (if they mean Salt Lake City) to Nampa Idaho. 5.5 hour drive.

I reserved a rental car for the tenth, however, we would have to drive it back with the Jeep to Oregon. 8 hours each way, with gas, same day doesn’t really make sense. I am able to cancel the car though, thankfully.

I also found that the plane tickets have gone up significantly.
Last question for you that may know the answer to. Since I have been told by chat the 10-12 to 10-26 window, do you think the dealership would charge if I held off until 10-24 to pick it up? It will save us quite a bit of money to hold off. I just don’t know if I can wait that long

You should be able to pick up the rental from an airport and drop it off at an airport close to the dealership. I have done it twice in the past and will be going that route when my JLUR shows up at Koons. Mine is still in pieces though.

Anyways, try Travelocity.com, they are great and you would think I had stock in the company the amount of times I use them for trips.

To ramp at the train yard and find a truck ... it could be same day, it could be a couple of weeks. It just depends on when and where you are queued in the VLS and how many truck drivers are driving these around to drop them off. Lower volume stores take a back seat compared to high volume dealers. More trucks = faster delivery. Less trucks, everything is queued and sometimes get bumped to make room for new vehicles that are going to the same place or very close as the rest of the load already loaded.
