That stinks you have the long wait time. I ordered mine the 4/27 and was so excited that it finally went to Trim and is done in one day BUT now it has been sitting in whatever they want to call holding for accessories or delivery IDK I'm only 150 miles away.... I would go pick it up if I could!
I really hope you get yours sooner than I had to wait. Mine is past the 6 weeks already, but I also feel bad complaining some people wait months and months. It will come and so will yours :)
I'm patient, but confused with the process. IF in fact all materials have been received, I thought by now my jeep would have been queued into production. And Jeep chat does not have access to status code, which is a bit irritating. Meanwhile, I read where one customer located on the West Coast took delivery of his Jeep 4 weeks from the order date. And another whose Jeep shipped 3 weeks from the day ordered....how lucky. Gee, to be 150 miles away from Toledo and you can't pick it up must be frustrating...oh well, this too shall pass. :)

When it comes to the JeepCares statuses, do we have a mapping of response to code?
Tuesday I got "vehicle has been built and is pending installation of additional equipment" (i imagine this is I?) and today I got "I am showing that your vehicle is in the stage prior to being released by the plant. Vehicle may have been selected for additional quality inspections or held for delivery purposes." (J? JS?)

Does anyone know if it is possible to, when doing an order, to get your jeep shipped to a different dealership/location other than where you purchases it from since you are already paying a freight charge?

This whole business of Jeep not giving codes anymore stinks. Paint stage the last two weeks, today Matthew tells "I'm through the build process". What does that mean Matthew. What's next. "I don't know, check back in a couple weeks". You're a lot of help. So I'm assuming out of build means done with paint and trim. Anybody have any idea what stage out of the build stage might be?
I = unit built, pending final inspection
J = vehicle passed final inspection but not released to carrier
JB = shipped to body vendor
JE = shipped to emissions
JJ = consigned to body vendor
JS = shipped to storage
KZ = released by plant and invoiced

I got a status update of "KZLD". Trying to read the codes from the original poster but hoping if someone could clarify what that meant just to confirm. Thank you so much!

Think that's "in transit; delayed". Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Apologies if this is common knowledge, but at what stage of the build process does the build sheet get created?

2015 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited
So I am new to the ordering process for 2021s, have had several Jeep Wranglers/CJs ect. 2 ordered from scratch

Starting the process of ordering Sahara unlimited, Hydro Blue, hard top with second set (half) doors, automatic....

Couple of questions;
1) any options that are currently delayed?
2) Is there an ordering guide? I went on Jeep.com, what I am ordering does not match up with dealer exactly (keyless proximity required when dealer enters Sahara...)
3) Audio - Premium Audio shows Alpine speakers included, yet when I order ($1995) it also ads $1295 for the speakers. WT...

Any other tips?

Short story on the 2015 I have, had to be ordered twice as it was determined non-deliverable after build.

Thanks in advance!!! Hailing from Tampa.

You can look at the order guide info here and use the interactive pricing spreadsheet to see how options impact each other and/or add other groups with them when you add one. For example, adding the 8.4" Radio and Premium Audio group includes the Alpine stereo. The pricing should not double-up / double-dip.

Gorilla Glass seems to be a major hold up right now. Or, at least that's what we speculate.

I ordered my jeep on 6/11, I just checked with Jeepchat today to see if it had been issued a VIN. She gave me the VIN and also said that all materials have been gathered, and vehicle is sequenced for production and would enter build very soon. She also said there was no “set” delivery date but I did not get an estimated delivery date either, just the 7-9 weeks. Is this D1 status?

Just ordered pretty much the same thing, with a few different options, earlier this week.

1. Gorilla Glass is currently believed to be the prime hold up, at the moment. It only became available on the May order guides, but we're hearing that FCA is encouraging all new dealer stock orders to include it, so it's possible/probable that they're finally getting inventory to crank through the backlog. If you need/want your Jeep in the next 4-6 weeks, I would NOT include Gorilla Glass. If you're less concerned with the actual date of delivery, then it's a great option at a ridiculous price.

2. Yes, stickied in this subforum. That will be much more useful than the online build tool, which is notoriously out of date and buggy. The online build tool is a great starting point to compare options, etc, but you should definitely do your final estimating/costing with the actual order sheets. Ultimately, whatever the dealer can actually put on the order takes precedence over whatever the online build tool shows you.

3. Another issue with the online build tool - it looks like it double-dips on a few items. As in #2 above, the dealer's order system is correct.

If you have the ability to travel, you can usually get a better deal from a few popular dealers on this forum. I just placed my order with Daniel at Gupton Motors just outside of Nashville for 8% off invoice pricing. None of my local dealers could even come close to that.
