They told me this when I checked on Tuesday. It kind of ticked me off…
Yeah they used to say a day or two. Not that I am in a rush the longer it takes the bigger my down payment but I found it odd that they changed.

9/3 - Order
9/7 - VON and VIN & D status
9/18 - D1
10/4 - Build sheet
10/13 - Window Sticker
10/14 - Released from factory and approved for shipping (no ETA yet - was told to check back in a few days)
How did you get a window sticker before it shipped? I keep checking the VIN link for mine and it still doesn't show up. Received a ship date of 10/26 from my dealer yesterday.

Was just pinged on that tracking tool in the first page. Looked it up and it was my exact order, downloaded it and saved it. I suspect there isn't really a rhyme or reason for a lot of their processes. Everybody seems to have totally different experience. Me though, if I get it in the next couple weeks (which is very highly likely as I'm just awaiting shipment now and am in Ohio) I'll have only waited 8 weeks from order to delivery which is pretty reasonable given the times.

Here's your VIN

Ah okay, yes being in OH may make a difference with the faster access to it. If mine shows up at the dealership by the end of the month, I'll be right at 8 weeks too. It feels much longer during this last stretch, but I keep trying to remind myself that my timeline is actually not bad!

Question... when getting a quote on a build from a dealer, especially those that offer below invoice, at what point do you negotiate the price based on a trade in and down payment and financing?

My opinion, put the build together. When the build & price was current mine was accurate to the dollar. Negotiate the price, then shop that price to other dealers. Once you have the best price reveal your trade and possibly shop the trade to other dealers that are close on price. Now you have a price and down payment shop for your loan. Don’t forget to ask about additional fees they may vary.

Hello - I am new here and to the Jeep family! I ordered my Sahara in August, just got my window sticker today (build sheet received on Sept. 21st. Contacted JC and my dealer and both tell me that my vehicle has been released to ship and just waiting to be picked up. Neither can provide me with an ETA. Is anyone aware of current shipping timeframes once your Jeep has been released to ship? How often do they pick up from the plant?

8/25 - VIN and D , maybe a day or two earlier
9/24 - D1
9/29 - Est Build date 10/13
10/11 - Framing stage, should be complete within a couple days.
10/12 - Built: awaiting installation of accessories
10/18 - Completed Inspection, in shipping stage, no dealer ETA

My dealer has been pretty good so far. Contacts me once a week to give me an update.
Order date: 9/8
D status - 9/17
D1-10/4
2021 Willys
This will be my first jeep and this ordering stuff is not for me. I’m a very impatient person lol.
My dealer is not very "talkative" lol I've only gotten two emails from my sales guy. My Willys is ready for shipping but no ETA. I ordered it on 8/30 and it was ready for shipping Oct 13. We will see how much longer I have to wait.
