I ordered my Willys on 6/15 and it was put on a rail car on 9/9 with the latest eta to the dealer of 10/20 (3 prior etas). So that would be 125 days or just under 18 weeks. But, Nerubi tells me not to count pre-production time, although ordered, so with that logic it would be about 10 weeks from the start of plant production -- assuming it arrives on the latest eta.
Update: Ordered my Willys JLU on 9/14 and received word (along with photos) 10/27 that wheels are on the ground at the dealership in OH. Now to wrap up financing and delivery to PA.

Did you get it yet? I would hate to have to follow through on my offer, with tomorrow being Hallowe'en and all.
LOL! Wheels are on the ground in OH. Need to wrap up paperwork and financing, then travel to Pittsburgh (from Philly) to receive delivery. He is pretty though. Looks like I better get started refreshing my stick shift driving because that baby’s ready to come home.

I was perusing the threads and saw you were in Philly, so this may be timely. I am right across the river and I ordered my 2021 JLUR Manual from Lucas Jeep in Lumberton/Mt Holly, NJ on 6/18. The order was submitted into the system on 6/20 and it arrived on 9/29. I bugged Jeep Chat in August and believe it probably shipped from Toledo at the end of August/beginning of September. Mine has a Sky One Touch Top which may be out of the ordinary, but all the other options were basic things like towing/cold weather/8.4" Alpine/LED, so these I don't think would have required extra time to throw in Mopar accessory add-ons like the soft top box in the back, or tailgate reinforcement, etc. I also believe that this distance would have required a train ride and based on my research in other threads dating back to the 2018/2019 era when they were new, there is a rail yard south of Chester as well as one up by Newark, NJ that the train would have gone to, and then a truck ride to the dealer. So time to order and complete the build was probably 1.5-2 months and another month for transit. By now I would hope they have the additional Covid procedures dialed in at the factory for the build process so perhaps your wait may be a little shorter. Hope that helps and be safe!.
Hey there, looking to join in the fun with local Jeep groups - so nice to know you’re in the area. Thanks for passing along this info. I’ve grown a bit dissatisfied with the auto negotiator I’m working with. After agreeing to pick the Jeep up in Pittsburgh (dealer is delivering to my parents house for free) I’ve since learned there are at least 3 dealerships right in my area who have been doing factory orders since early in the pandemic. Negotiator told me she couldn’t find one near me. Also learned she placed my order with a Mazda salesperson she’s worked with for 3+ yrs. Mazda guy for a Jeep order? Seems fishy. Not sure who her client is now. Me or the dealer? Anyway, leaving it up to God now to work this one out for me. I shall be still and wait. And if I need to walk away, I’m more than willing to do so. Will just take my window sticker to a local dealer and see if they can match or beat it. What’s another 8 week wait when I’ve already waited 8 years. ☺

Did you try Kate at Courtesy Jeep in Coatesville (about an hour from Philly)?
I am a little north of the city in Lower Bucks County and just ordered from her on Oct 31st.
I was expecting 5% under invoice w/Tread Lightly but we agreed to 4.4% under invoice so I was happy the deal.

Oh man! I think I may have been suckered the negotiator/dealer duo. I paid full MSRP minus a $1K discount of some sort. Oddly enough, they never did tell me (or note anywhere) what this discount was. Could be making a mountain of a molehill, but something about it just seems “off”.

Well just be happy you have a beautiful Jeep!
Now that you know about this forum you know youll get a great deal next time. Pretty sure if you are not on or familiar with JLforums.com you are paying MSRP!
But Definitely check out Kate with Coatesville Jeep next time,...or Koons or Criswell if you do not mind a little longer drive to pick it up. (obviously you do not!! LOL)
Either way congrats! Cant wait for my Willys to get here!!
