Status update on my order - I know there are a few of us with 2 door manual trans JLs in the que currently.

-Order placed 3/29

-Received VIN, VON, Updated POC with status D, no Estimated dates 3/30

-Jeep chat indicated parts are available, waiting for build, couldn't provide status code 4/1

- Dealer updated that status is now D1, estimated ship date of 4/16, but noted that ship dates can be very fluid and changing as build progresses, which I knew about 4/5

Build specs:
2021 JL Rubicon 2 door
Hydro blue
Black 3 piece hard top
M6 manual transmission
3.6L
Cloth seats
LED lighting group
Basic safety group
Premium audio 8.5" group
Trailer tow and HD electrical group
Steel bumper group
Cold weather group
Stainless door sill guards
Hard top headliner
Engine block heater
Hinge gate reinforcement

I know there is concern that the manual trans vehicles are being delayed, but it looks like potential progress, although time will tell when the actual build starts.

My jeep has been in "additional equipment status", which I think is JB? for about five days now. My model's pretty basic and the only additional things I really added (other than a few basic upgrades like the wheels and stuff) are the chrome side steps and dual top group.. anyone have an idea of long this usually takes before it will ship??
For reference:
-3/18: Order date
-4/1: Build sheet on tracker
-4/2: Jeep chat says jeep has been built, but is pending installation of additional equipment, no dealer ETA
-4/4: Jeep chat says it's in "additional equipment status and entered this on 4/1"

Can I brag on Gupton Motors in Springhill Tn and my amazing sales associate Walter Lee? I've bought more cars than I care to admit but this was the best transaction I've ever had. I ordered the Jeep back in early March and picked it up last night. This beautiful Rubicon, with a manual transmission, replaced my 2 door sport with auto. I got a great price with the forum and tread lightly program, fair trade, no silly upsale on pinstripes, nitrogen in tires, etc.

Going to try and wait 1-2 weeks before checking again. The rumors of parts shortages are making me anxious 👀

From what I've read, Jeep has saved chips for the Wranglers because they are their most profitable vehicles. If you do a google search you should find the article.
