Glad to see FCA sales are picking up overall. Its just a shame to see the namesake brands aren't doing well compared to the others though.

6-8 weeks is already the standard wait time not including the delays. I waited 11 1/2 weeks for mine and a lot of people still have me beat on the wait. Only the lucky few have gotten theirs in the 4-6 week range.

It looks like their grouping in the JK and JL so we don’t have that break down , but I would sure hope with two factories running making two models of wrangler as opposed to just one that the sales volume would be higher.

I waited 19 weeks. Ordered Jan 8. People ordering now are will be in the 6 - 8 week range. With all that was involved in the rollout of the new JL a longer than normal wait can be expected. Some guys who ordered in December are still waiting. Thhe 2019 model year will be much smoother. And I will say the new JL is phenomenal!

JK model stopped being built a while back. While sales may be combined, there should not be an impact at the factory.

Yep. I was one of the lucky. Ordered and arrived in almost exactly 4 weeks.

JKs were being built through the end of April.

Well that should be it for the increases in sales now. As the new JK supply is starting to dry up, I predict that we'll see sales hit a plateau now. I've been anxious to see how Wrangler does this summer and especially into the early fall considering the new pricing structures. Here we go! If we see a decline by August I won't be surprised.

Not sure how "dry" it really is out there for JKs. As of today, one of the dealers I deal with across the river in Minnesota has 59 JKs (and 54 JLs) on their two lots and my local dealer here in small town Wisconsin has 53 JKs (and only 14 JLs) on their lot. I suspect that more than a few dealers stocked up on the JKs while they could "just in case," not to mention that FCA, like other manufacturers, dumps vehicles on dealers as it sees fit. Those JK sales will be reflected in the June sales summary, very likely some in July, and probably even a few in August before the JKs are likely to be truly gone, gone.

Yep, it will be a while before the last JK will be sold as new. We still see a few Darts every month even though that model has been discontinued for a while. They must be hidden somewhere.
