I just checked on my order.
My Jeep had been D1 and last Thursday (5/31) it went from a D1 to a D on my salesman's system.
My Jeep had not been built, it was not cloned.
According to 877# today, I am still in D.
No schedule until parts come in.

Hopefully, when you people who got cloned start moving at the end of the month (fingers crossed), I will go to D1, but who knows where in the schedule it will be.

As for you folks who got cloned, congratulations on ordering the VERY exclusive Jeep JL Phoenix Edition. Since mine wasn't built, I am not in that club.

I love being able to say I’m a clone

Anyone accumulating a collection of parts for their incoming turbo like I am?

Lol yes. 5 wheels in my basement. 5 tires in the shop. Head liners in the basement. Already returned the gas cap since they now come with it. Shorty antenna. Tazer JL. Hoist-a-Top hoist system. Probably a few others I’m forgetting. Eek!

I was at Fortec today... they are doing the Custom work on my Jeep when it finally comes... but they were telling me they order jeeps for customers to customize. And when they went to order a 2.0 Turbo it said it would be six months before delivery. So new orders will be six months out!

Asked dealer to submit a second order for me, also a turbo but with the changes I requested that he wasn’t able to make. Hoping he’s willing to do it without another deposit and let me pick which one I want based on when they come in (then sell the other as a dealer vehicle).

He isn’t pumped about it and said he’d have to check with his manager.

Starting to think there are more and more reasons to bail. He keeps saying just hold out until next week...

If the 3.6 had BSG I would probably jump ship now, but I’m hanging on by a thread.

That would be a 2019... I wonder if they’re going to release these as a limited edition 2018 for our orders only and then all others as 2019s.

If there would have been a 2door Sahara I would've done that especially since it has selecttrac but I'm an old angry man (get off my grass) now that doesn't need much off roading anymore so I added to the sport the anti-spin option along with all others (except smokers) ... thinking turbos may naturally run hot so considered (no pun intended) rubicon just for the neat vented hood - stayed with sport-s though - snow would probably melt thru it and dirty it up (?) ... :)
