Hi, looks like my Jeep JL Rubi has been built and is awaiting shipment. Word from FCA this morning is there is a huge backlog of shipments that their transport partners are working through. No detail on what this means...whether it means I will get the Jeep in a few weeks or a few months. Have any of you experienced similar and have any insight on the 'so what' of this delay?

Thanks!

Yeah check around the forums, or read through the two door thread here, and you will see plenty of people waiting for shipping for...... a long while.

Some have delays and some don't. It's random. Mine sailed through. Others built at the same time still haven't shipped.

I'm hoping I have similar luck. Placed my order today and was told the earliest mine will be built is in the next allocation period which begins 6/7. Oh well, I've gone 34 years without one. What's another month or two?

Makes no sense Jeeps shipping out. Mine was built 4-20 and hit dealership 4-27. Others sit and sit.

With Ford shutting down it's F150 plants temporarily, maybe shipping companies will have more openings for Jeeps.

Just wishful thinking.

Mine was built on the 7th and arrived at the dealer on the 11th but I’m in Michigan so there’s no rail transportation needed

Ordered 3/4 and picked up 5/31. Got a 2 door Sport with a lot of extras. Did get updates from Jeep at around 5 or 6 weeks.

Mines been ready to ship for 44 days with no eta in sight, this is ridiculous. Ordered middle of February. I can’t believe this hasn’t hit the news yet. What’s the issue @JeepCares ??? Or don’t you really care?

I show 52 2 doors in my 75mi radius with 6 actually on the lots and the rest in transit. Looks like the building part picked up but the shipping must be a nightmare. Ugh

If jeep chat isn't blowing smoke mine has been sitting idle in KZ without a shipping date since last Friday. The dealer & Jeep.com sites show it as in transit but that appears to be loosely defined.
