Hard to believe release date is that close with no VON or VIN. But what do I know? lol

My thinking exactly! How's he know that vehicle has a release date with no VIN or VON? I actually have a theory about my dealer or his sales manager forgetting to put my order in. I originally ordered Nacho but got a text a week later from the dealer that it was no longer available. I immediately texted back that Sarge Green would be my second choice. I waited till 3/31 and sent an email asking if it had a VIN yet and he responded no, not yet. On 4/2 he emailed and Said it now had a VIN but didn't include it so I emailed back and asked for it and he said they don't give him that info. I think when I told him my second color choice he forgot to tell the sales manager or the sales manager forgot to put it in and it didn't get ordered till 3/31.

I hope that is not the story. I would be beyond pissed.

Ordered 2021 Wrangler High Altitude
Hi
From London, Ontario.
Ordered my High Altitude 2.0L Turbo with Full-Time 4WD (Selec-Trac and Trac-Loc), Sky One-Touch, Advanced Safety Group, Off Road Camera plus standard features (Safety Group, Cold Weather group, remote start, etc)
Was told by dealer 6-8 weeks.
Order went in Jan 25th
BX a few weeks later with VON (no VIN)
Stuck in BX until last week where it went back to BG for a week or so.
Now back to BX.
14 Weeks and counting with no movement.
Beyond frustrated but at least dealer has been communicative with weekly updates.

Yeah, they should NOT have told you 6-8 weeks.... but I'd be surprised if you didn't go to D fairly soon at this point.

You ordered in February and don’t have a VIN? I ordered 2 weeks ago and had a VIN within 3 days

I ordered in October 2020 and only have a VIN. The ship date was April 21 but that's come and gone. So frustrating

I ordered everything except offroad camera and one touch sky roof. I did order steel grey interior instead of black interior with 3.6L.
