Where did you get the extra information? The sheet I brought home from the dealer when I ordered says :priority: 1 (sold order)" but I am not sure where to get updated status codes. I am in Crypto, but that's still a very coarse amount of data.
When I bought my 2016, there was a service ($25) on a JK forum that tracked your Jeep through production, and even through every railroad stop. Alas...no longer available.

My wife ordered a Mini in 2014. Their tracking was so robust that she has a picture of her ship, with her car onboard, navigating the Panama Canal. I ordered a Porsche a dozen years ago and remember GPS-tracking the ship all across the Atlantic and Pacific.

Jeep is missing the boat (no pun) by not offering a pay service to give the option to owners.

That was the remants of the VOTS that Jeep pulled because customers were a PIA about the data and the fee one was also pulled.

I'm anxious because I want to see a build date, even if it might change....it would show progression and a shred of hope.
My suggestion would be to just take a few deep breaths and relax. If you're this stressed out this early in the process you may well be a nervous wreck before the process is over.

Later,
Johnny

Anxious may not be the right word, but I want to go play. I have been cooped up indoors for months, my current vehicle is on it's last legs. I ended up ordering after trying to get a 2020 for about 9 months that fit the bill, and having a few sold under me....after planning and investigating for over a year and wanting to get one for 20.
Can you fault me for wanting something to go forward?

No help, but if you had ordered 9 months ago you would of been driving it all summer. And is there anything to see in NH, bet not like the beautiful, endless cornfields of Nebraska. Endless, endless, endless cornfields.

I lived in Omaha for a year in the 80s. Hottest AND coldest place I’ve lived: 100 degrees with humidity & 50 below with wind chill in the winter of 1983. And...that saying something based on my current home and the fact that I grew up in New England.

We have leaves! …..Which sounds really dull when I put it like that. I grew up here so it's normal, but people come from miles to look at the leaves on trees changing colors in the fall. I mean it's pretty, but I am not sure I'd drive 8 hours to see it. Bet it would look better with the top off! We also have a lot of class 6 roads to explore.

What part of NE? I grew up east of the mountains in NH and have since moved west of them. I am surprised by the weather difference relative to my hometown. We get a lot more snow out here and the temps 10-15 degrees lower. I have heard the less costal states get bigger temp swings, but I have always lived costal. Even Alaska was stable....cold, but stable

Should of been here in the '70s - actual temps -33 and two weeks didn't get above freezing. And the 100 degree, high humidity summers allows me to be out in my speedo without my skin drying out.

Would love to be there in the fall especially in the small towns. Norman Rockwell.

Come on up anytime! Although COVID has barely hit here so don't bring it with you :) You can rent a wrangler from Boston Airport and they don't sell out quickly because they don't do well in the city (with poorly planned undersized roads)

GTR, RDX,
Quick question for your boys. Ordered a Rubi on 7/3 but have since changed my mind to wanting the Alpine stereo. Dealer said its too late in the process but reading this and other threads makes me question the response I'm getting.
Any input would be useful....

thanks much.

You can't make changes after you place a custom order... My paperwork stated that in big bold red letters...
