According to their profile they are in Canada. From other posts on here it sounds like Canadian orders are taking forever.
Hmmm, good catch. Wonder if that's it? Would probably be worth a trip to the lower 48 to get one then! I think they're cheaper here as well. If you did that and drove it home, would you have an import tax or something?

It was posted in various places and there were articles on it. It was supposedly just for routine maintenance and upgrades.

you may have issues with warranty support importing to or from Canada

Two weeks ago we ordered two more Gladiator Sports for our tour business. I have to schedule the conversion with our vendors, when I inquired about the delivery date I was told November.

It is common for most automotive production locations to have a once a year shutdown for maintenance.

Assuming you are in the US and didn't order a 392, your order should be in by now. It is rare that an order would more than 60 days. Beside 392, no options available in February should have delayed your Jeep this long. I would check with your dealer. I would suspect that either they didn't put the order in or or it came in and they sold it.

If you ordered in March you need to contact both your dealer and Jeep chat to have your order escalated. I can't believe you don't have yours yet... MARCH?!?! There are people who ordered in late May & early June who just took delivery of theirs. Your dealer needs to get some answers for you, like what's the status and did they even put your order in? Please tell us your dealer at least gave you a VON & VIN#? They need to provide you with your POC (Priced Order Confirmation). That will give you your order date, VON, VIN, and details of your order. If you have those and your order date, Jeep Chat can help you for sure. If not, start with your dealer. Good luck, we're here to help if possible.

Thank you for reaching out. I really appreciate it..


I’ve contacted the dealership and the sales guy I dealt with. I was told my Jeep was shipped to body vendor.. and it should be here in 6 weeks. I’m not sure what body vendor means so I’ll teaser hopefully that. I did get a VIN #.

I’m will holding my breath on the the time they have told me. Just because anything is possible at this point. I’ve heard once it’s built my issue will be the delivery…so we shall see.. this is really teaching me patience thats For sure..

yes, I’m Canadian from Vancouver B.C and our orders have been taking anywhere from 4-6 months. That’s what I have seen With my research.

Thank you for all who have replied I don’t feel so alone in this wait.

Yes, I’m from Vancouver Canada.. and I’ve read the same thing.. Canadian orders take way longer than US…
Trust me, if I could get across the border. I would fly down and drive my Jeep home.. sounds like a great road trip… until then I’ll be patient and wait…

Man, they need to get my Jeep DONE.

I keep eyeballing the forum and I'm convincing myself mine with have loose fuses, hinge bubbles, the freedom tops will leak, my 2.0 will sound like a diesel and the service light will come on before I get it home.

Now tonite I read I might only get 1 key with it. Arrgghh

Other recent Wrangler picker-uppers, did you get 2 fobs at delivery?

When I saw it I chuckled and thought, well thats just crazy talk..... then I remembered how things have changed. I used to buy bacon by the pound, carpet by the yard and ice cream by the half gallon.

For God's sake, I paid FOR PAINT on this vehicle. 🤔

But one key, thats just nuts. Hell, I searched for my truck keys for 10 minutes just yesterday, I was holding them...

Well, at least you ordered a bright color Jeep , so finding it in a group or lot should be easy.
