I ordered a loaded OB JLUS on 4/4. The only options I didn’t get were the 2.0 liter engine, matching color hardtop and engine block heater. The vehicle went to D1 on 5/23 back to D then back to D1. I was told the vehicle would be built the week of 6/11 then 6/18 then 7/2. After constant calling ALLNEWWRANGLER hotline no one could tell me what was going on with my order. I called FCA customer assistance again no information was available. My dealer just kept telling me it’s in D1 status. Finally on 7/11 I told my dealer cancel my order since by the time I recleve the vehicle summer will be almost over and orders for the 2019 model will be starting shortly. Why would I want a vehicle that will be seen as a year old even though it’s brand new. Now the wait for opening 2019 order bank starts.

2018 JL order cut-off: 7/19/2018

2018 JL production end: 10/27/2018


2019 JL order banks open: 9/13/2018

2019 JL Production launch: 10/29/2018

Patience grasshopper-

I ordered my 2dr ruby 1-22-18 and I was given reliable data every month and the exact reasons for delay--

I was told on the last week in JUNE THAT MY DELIVERY TO (Fernley, NV) WOULD BE 7-7 TO 7-17

It was delivered 7-12-18 and I'll pick up Sat 7-14-18 after my little town dealer does a full presale checklist, wash/dry and fill with gas--

Good things come to those that wait !

W.E.

Jimbo, if anyone had given me a reason or a cause for the delay I would have been satisfied but no one had any answers. Enjoy you new ride!

Well crap JB, you're probably gonna get a better one, waiting for the '19, but you'll still have to wait after you order-

The better relationship you have with your dealer(SALESMAN) the more dependable info you can get-but

Man you gotta be ready for a delay

Good luck--you'll get there-
