Same order date here and nothing either. No clue what's up. They seem to be skipping all the may and June orders to fill July and August
They're going to surprise you guys with '22 models!

Missing my 2021 JLR
I don't think you can unless you have the rail car#, the specific RR, and call their tracking CSR. Even then I doubt you'd get that information as just a random person. You'd probably need to have a registered account and then you can track "your" freight in their system. The dealer should be able to track it if they care to I would think. All the Jeeps are loaded into a manifest that's tied to the specific autocarrier railcar they're on. When that railcar goes by a scanner, all the vehicles update. Again, dealer should be privy to that info I would guess.

Here's a quick, interesting video on the autocarriers: UP Autocarriers
Ho

How can i track the train mine would be in?
I work for the railroad. You cannot track a rail car unless you are a customer and speak to the right people and have all the needed information. Jeep would be able to call customer service and get the location of a rail car, but I highly doubt they even have the information of which rail car a given vehicle is loaded on to. Just that it was delivered to the shipper, off-loaded, delivered to dealer, etc.

I worked for a 3PL and we had the tracking info automatically updated in our systems on each of our containers. But we submitted the billing directly to the RR as soon as they were loaded so they would allow our containers to ingate. I guess the question is who's freight is it at what point? When does it transfer from Jeep to the dealership? JC usually defers to the dealer on final delivery dates and I would imagine it's the dealers freight since they placed the order. I'm going with B) the dealer!

Yes!! D1 status. Called Jeep Customer Care late today and got great news! I know I know, it could regress. It might not even be true. Jeep Chat still stays waiting for parts. So....clearly one hand doesn't know what the other is doing. Not that that's news. BUT i will take it and pretend there's a rail car with my name own it next week.

Ordered 6/22
D1 Status - 8/27 (66 days)

'21 Sahara 4xe Ordered '18 Tesla Model 3 For Sale
I don't think there is any way to make any sense of this entire system. All I want is a tentative date and can't seem to get that. So frustrating!!
If it didn't involve so many people dealing with frustration, this would be a fascinating thread making for a great puzzle. I hope you get your build soon!

'21 Sahara 4xe Ordered '18 Tesla Model 3 For Sale
I don't have much support with my thought on this, but from what I have seen, the more wranglers a dealership sells, the more allocations they get. If you order from a dealership that sells jeep, but the majority are GC, it will come in slower than the dealership that sell wranglers in volume. I heard this from my dealer, but also I have reached out to people that have quick turn around on their orders, and most are from volume dealers.

I bought mine in KS, because my local dealership (other than being a$$holes) sell more dodge trucks, and they told me 12-16 weeks for an order. I could be wrong, and mine may not come in till next Feb. (I ordered 7/30) but mine is moving along fine, and my salesman called me and said they hope to have it in 2-3 weeks. Only time will tell.
So much guesswork trying to figure it out - but this theory seems possible. I wonder if high volume dealers fave different priority on the orders they submit. I also wonder about higher margin builds having priority - of course all this also dependent on availability of parts for different options.

I think the point from the dealer is specific to the 4xe. Also, good to note that supply restrictions are not zero supply. I am sure someone got one fast. But for those who are waiting a unseemingly long time, this may be helpful. I am pretty sure the Mopar dealer owner wasnt making this up.
I ordered a Sahara 4XE.

My Salesman updates me daily Since mine has shipped. He updates when he arrives to work and before he departs. The Dealers have access to the transit info.

They are tracked. I receive daily updates from my Salesman. Just an FYI.

Proviso, IL as of two hours ago - received this info when my guy arrived to work.
