You may want to read this to get a better understanding of what is going on and what's ahead:

Great reference, read it all! Hoping they don’t accidentally sell mine haha, but the sales manager and I had some odd connections that I took as good omens, was born in same small town in Minnesota as me, but we both live in Denver now, and he lived by my current house too, and grandparents from another small Minnesota town, so made for an easy buying process ;)

Did you happen to have a link to that “before you sign” from the dealer checklist? If it was more suggestion, I’m definitely making a list, thanks again and time for patience!

There are two threads in the sticky section on it. Here's one:
https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/jl-delivery-checklist.3453/

Make the list specific to your order with options. Take a flashlight and tire gauge. It is a lot easier to document it before you leave the dealer. And test drive it after checking the tire pressure is down to placard pressure since they ship them with high pressure and sometimes prep doesn't lower it.

Willmar, so 2 hours straight west of Minneapolis. Nothing to challenging for a Jeep, unlike Colorado!!

my daughter ordered her sport s on 6/2, dealer held paperwork until 6/8...just got done with jeep chat, her exact words:

I am showing the order would the following information. Waiting on inspection prior to release or until space available on carrier for shipping. I am showing no ETA listed on the order as of yet

maybe good news, I don't know how reliable the info is, after some of the "wrong info" threads

I’m at the exact same step according to Jeep Chat. My order date is 7/1 for a 4 door rubicon.

It's weird how some orders in July are built before orders in June, etc. I guess it all depends on whether the engine and other options are available, and those builds leapfrog the earlier orders.

Not at all. Everything is available and the order of build doesn't depend on any trim or options. That has been confirmed by assembly workers. They don' t know the sequence decision either and no one is telling them.

That's very interesting. And mysterious! Well, my 2021 JLUS was ordered on 6/27 and it hasn't been built yet, so I guess I have to drive to the factory and slip the decision maker a crisp $10 bill in order to grease the skids and get mine on the assembly line.

What worked for me was calling and saying I was Beyonce's cousin. Next day it was built after sitting in D for 5 weeks.
Yes, I could see how that would work. I did something similar when I called and said I was Paul Manafort's brother-in-law. It didn't work.

I ordered my 2021 Sahara 6/19, got the VIN soon after. I've been checking the customer service chat regularly... they always said all parts are compiled but never gave me a build date. My salesperson told me on 8/17 that it was in the paint shop. Today the chat rep said it was having accessories installed, so it should ship soon I hope. Does anyone have an idea how long it would take to ship to southeastern PA?

Right now no 2021s are shipping. Word from Jeep Chat is those already built now will start September 1.
