Hello all! I know there are several of us out there who have ordered the half door group and we also see questions about them.... anyone seen in person? Anything on dealer lots? When will they be available for order?!?!

I figured we can all post here for order date and updates on those orders as a one stop shop for all those waiting on or who have received their half door group. I'll go first...

JLUR ordered 12/5
Paint status allegedly completed and awaiting additional parts - I am thinking this is th dual door group that is holding up from shipping. Ship date was supposed to be 1/20.

Who else has ordered and when and what status are you in now?

JLR ordered 10/5/20
1/7/21 in paint
1/8/21 build sheet in crypto
1/12 allegedly built pending installation of additional features or optional equipment

Since I didn't order any Mopar equipment I too assume the holdup is the half doors

Is that correct... you ordered on 10/5?! Like October 5th? How have you waited so long so patiently?

I'm Oct. 28th order on my 2 door Willy's Sport with half doors. I just tell myself it'll get here when it gets here. I do watch some YouTube videos of similarly equipt Jeeps....

I've only seen three on the tracker so far with half doors- but I don't look at them all.

I did mention on another thread my Jeep was supposed to have manual locks and windows; however, my build sheet is showing power locks, mirrors, and windows in the options list now.... If correct I'm speculating all dual door groups may require power full doors and all half doors will be power locks/mirrors. 😑

Time will tell. I'm still hoping for manual locks/ windows!

What did ship date say for you guys? Mine was supposed to be 1/20 and salesman said it was showing 1/19 last week.

Jan 8th: F- paint
Jan 11th: Build sheet showed up
Jan 12th: JB- body shop/installing addl parts.

I've only contacted Jeep Chat once to get the VIN, and my dealer once- to inquire about the build sheet showing the power options.... As I don't want them. 😑

Will add my 2 cents to the mix and follow. I also ordered dual door group with premium uppers/soft top for a JLURD. Ordered end of December. Got VIN day after order...now the wait.

Yep, put down a deposit October 5th. I'm a very patient person. I'd tell you stories about my legendary patience, but it's unlikely you are patient enough to listen to them :) I'm also very good looking. And humble, very humble. Which is difficult when you are as patient and good looking and smart as I am.

I am thinking it should be shortly at least. If you guys placed orders in October and they waited till December/January to build I would imagine the dual doors should be coming out soon. No one has heard from sales person about a ship date? I'll prob reach out to mine tomorrow and see if he has heard anything.

Here is the "chat reply" I just got. I only contact once a week.
"I am showing all of the materials needed to start the build process have been received. The vehicle should be entering the build process soon.
Currently no Dealer ETA has been provided."

Ha! I was told the exact same thing over a month ago. The following day I got an email congratulating me on the purchase of two (!!!) Ram trucks. Still no dealer ETA.

Checked with my salesman and no update on shipping. He agreed it is most likely still the Dual Door holding it up. No estimate on shipping still.

Got an email from my dealer today. Supposedly mine is scheduled to be shipped out on 03 Feb 2021. We'll see!

I don't care if I'm first; but if accurate the dual doors built already should start to roll out next week....

Not gonna hold my breath though!

That's great news! I agree, being first is no big deal, but an end to this long wait? Now that's a BIG DEAL!
