Ordered 4/5
Built 4/23

"waiting on inspection" ever since. My order was supposedly "escalated" on 5/10 but it's been over 2 weeks and nothing but crickets, which makes me question the value of the "escalation". Anyone else continuing to experience anything similar and is there anything that can be done to resolve or is continuing to contact Stellantis and complain a futile battle?
Ordered mine on 3/27 (Bare bones Willys Sport) and it still hasn't been built yet. "Escalated" on 5/13, with nothing changed as of yesterday when I checked. So I don't believe the escalation does much.

I’ve not looked into it yet. I know it’s going to take at least 4 weeks at best so I’ll just follow up then.
Thats no fun. You're supposed to obsess and massively overthink every aspect of your new jeep for 30 days like the rest of us. Get with the program! :)

I did that on my current one I took delivery of in January of this year. Been there done that and I realize it arrives when it arrives!

3/17/21 - ordered
3/18/21 -
VON and VIN received
3/25/21 - all parts received and awaiting build
3/31/21 - dealer says estimated ship date of 4/27/21.
4/19/21 - dealer says status is D1, showing estimated ship date of 4/29/21, with delivery taking 10-14 days.
4/27/21 - build sheet issued.
4/28/21 - Jeep Chat says 'initial' build complete, awaiting Quality Inspection.
5/7/21 - Still in "inspection". Then, will move to "install additional equipment", which could be up to another 14 days. Then, it should move to shipment, which could be up to ANOTHER 14 days. So, could still be a month+ out.
5/21/21 - STILL in inspection!!! 🤨 Jeep chat has 'escalated my order'.
6/2/21 - Still in inspection. My dealer thinks there must be a part hold up. But, I have seen on here that 2-doors, manuals, 3.6's, etc have all been delivered. So, my delay is a big mystery that no one can answer.
6/3/21 - my dealer called and told me I am finally in transit!

5/17 - ordered & VON
5/19 - VIN (via jeep chat)
5/25 - framing
5/31 - build sheet
6/1 - JB status "shipped to body vendor" (via jeep chat). That was for HD rock slider w/step assist.

My dealer said it could arrive at the dealership in Idaho anytime between 6/12 and 7/9. That's a big window.

I got my order placed right before some kind of a cutoff. I tried to add gorilla glass less than an hour after that, but my order was already somehow locked and the dealer was unable to modify it. He said that if I wanted to add gorilla glass he'd have to cancel and re-enter my order, but I wouldn't make the cutoff and this would result in a delay of up to a month. I chose not to wait.

As of today on the FCA Chat they state that my order is in the scheduling phase of the manufacturing process. The parts required to build the vehicle are being scheduled and as soon as they're available and ready, order will be scheduled for build.

Hoping by July 4 but I am thinking later.

Ordered JLUR on 5/26... assuming the dealer put the order in that day, when do y'all think should I have a VON/VIN by? As of yesterday 6/3 they still said no VIN number. Man... this wait is going to kill me.

I got a VON when my dealer placed the order, the VIN came a few days later. Did you get a POC from the dealer after he placed the order w/ date ordered filled in?

Thanks for responding! I did not as I put $ down over the phone. I was sent a picture of what I believe is a POC and my receipt. So the VON... if I had that would I be able to do any tracking with that? I'm guessing not and a VIN is what is needed. I'm happy to ask for the VON# if knowing it gains me anything. The salesperson said it is still in D status and they don't get a VIN until it is in D1.
