I'm a heavy haul trucker, I own 6 trucks and drive one as well. I'm in Wyoming currently and I saw a mobile parking lot, aka car carrier fully loaded with jeeps crash earlier. The trailer rolled so I'm assuming all 8 are toast. Sad day.
As badly as we all want our Jeeps, I hope the driver wasn't hurt and able to return to his/her family. Thank you @Rubisramansbestfriend and all the other truck drivers for helping to keep America running during these challenging times.

How did Leon screw you? I almost ordered from Criswell but went with Chapman Jeep because they gave me a better discount.
Leon emailed me that my Jeep had shipped and it would arrive in 2 to 3 days. The Jeep plant is a short 7 hour drive from me. With this information, I started the process of selling my current Jeep to Vroom. Long story short, fours weeks later, No new Jeep and Vroom picked up my current Jeep.

Leon was wrong, the Jeep never shipped and I was without any car. Leon’s manager agreed to refund my deposit and let me out of the contract. I couldn’t keep waiting with no car.

It worked out for the best, I found a dealer down south with a 392 at a great price for sale. I couldn’t be happier. I had ordered a diesel, but ended up with a 392.

Glad things worked out and you got the 392.

Got the VIN today From the dealer. Search underway on crypto stickers. Contacted JC earlier today…in scheduling status with parts gathering. It’s progress for me after only having a VON since 8/9. The wait continues. 😀🇺🇸

Great info. Thanks for posting. Unfortunately, no dealer within 290miles of me accepted my supplier discount. They all told me MSRP is the price on special orders and most had marked up their in-stock Wranglers, some to the tune of $4000 OVER MSRP. Others would only tell me the markup by phone and would not put it in writing. So I ended up going with the closest dealer to me which is a large volume dealer and ordered my Willys based on MSRP.
We're honoring supplier pricing on sold orders.

I wonder if that is due to a lack of parts or chips. Which is all fine by me. I never liked the eTorque system anyway. more complexity that can cause issues down the line.

OMG! I just got a text from my sales guy. He said.... it's all done! should be released tomorrow and they expect it the first few days of September! I'm so freaking jazzed I could throw up! :clap::rock::like::puke::party::please::beer:
So an update... on 8/31, the dealer said it shipped. YAY! our customer care bot Cara, emailed a delivery of 8/31-9/14. Dealer said to expect it before the 10th. You think that happened. Of course not, this whole process has been an S show. I got a new email pushing the delivery back and the new delivery date 9/10-9/24. BOOOOO!
But Cara assures me that it remains prioritized for delivery. Huh, if I did that kind of prioritizing at my job, I think I would find myself without one. I'm less jazzed, and thoroughly fed up with it all.
So help me, if this one turns out to be a lemon also, I might lose my mind. :angry:🤬
