Ordered 2021 Wrangler High Altitude
I am in the indifference stage, starting to slide into utter contempt. Are you going to cancel your order?
No, not unless they cancel it first.
I have a Canadian order so I expect a delay, but 5 months post order and in D status for 5 weeks now is a little unacceptable IMO.

Plus it has me wondering, is this thing going to be a lemon? Does it keep failing these potential additional inspections? Or is it just waiting for a part? Or is my dealer way down on the totem pole? Or is it just now buried so deep in Jeep Storage that they don’t bother to pull it out when filling a rail car for MA? Some info would go a long way for unhappy Jeep Order long haulers! Does @JeepCares actually care?

@JeepCares is as useless as a knitted condom.

Ordered Willys Wrangler
@theymustbetrippin - I am in the same boat! I ordered 5/29/21 left the dealership with my VIN # and VON # in D status. I checked with chat every couple days. I thought I was ahead of the game a bit. nope. According to dealer, he was told it's scheduled to be built next week and that they are waiting on a few to be shipped to them in the next 2-3 weeks. ( to NJ) No clue what that will mean for me but I am very impatient since this is my first Jeep as well and it's summer.
I am in the same boat ordered on 5/29/21 and still stuck in d status as of today. What did you order? i am curious if there is any overlap between our builds. I ordered a sarge green willys unlimited. Soft top, cloth seats, technology package, and led lights.

I ordered a 2D Willys for my son on 5/26, got the VIN next day and nothing since. Have not seen many 2D or any Willys move in the last few weeks. JC just says gathering parts, dealer wont even call me back.
When i ordered my Sahara in 2019 it was 3 weeks to the day from order to delivery, was hoping for the same but not the case at all.

Wouldn't that be amazing!? Yeah i am not sure what is holding up the WIllys right now. I am getting the same message as you from JC. I honestly wouldn't mind waiting if i could get an estimation for when it would go in to production, or at least be informed on what part(s) are holding it up.

Hello All,

I ordered my first Jeep on 5/15. As of today, Jeep chat is saying they are still gathering parts for a JLU Willys Sport with the only options being sill plates and a tow package. On 6/2, they said the Jeep was in scheduling status and would be entering the assembly line soon. In another chat prior to that, they said all parts were ready. I failed to save that one though.

I really expected the build to go quickly since I wasn't adding a bunch of optional equipment and was hoping shipment to be speedy as well since I'm only about 3 hours from the plant.

I've seen some talk on here of escalating inquiries, so I gave that a shot. The Jeep chat rep said I would have to be in the same status another week, but could not give me the code of the status I am in. She did also say she had seen no changes to my status since my order was placed.

I can't tell if this seems like the D1 to D regression, or if I'm just getting jerked around. It seems like just about everyone here is far more knowledgeable on this whole process and I was wondering if anyone had some tips, or suggestions on getting a straight answer on what's actually happening with my Jeep. Thanks in advance, but judging from some of the posts I'm seeing, it looks like I might be in the dark until my dealer calls me to pick it up.
It seems the Willys Sport is a slow one overall from what I can tell on here. I’m still in D with a 2 door ordered in late March.

So I have an old friend who is heavily into Jeep and has worked at a dealership in KS as long as I've known him. I reached out last night and he let me know he could track a vehicle no matter the dealer. So he looked this morning for me. Late afternoon yesterday, my dealer said "if all goes well, should be here by end of this month". In other words... stop bugging me. Well my buddy sent me a screen shot that shows "railcar unload' at the Tampa rail yard yesterday at 12:08pm.!! Booom. My wife just drove past the dealership coming from an appointment and said there are several JLs and Gladiators on the lot now. Totally resisting the urge to start blowing them up now lol! Removing pegs, mirrors and replacing doors on the JKU now .... waiting for the call lol.
So can you ask your old friend about GG delays?:clap:

Indeed the chip shortages and other things are continuing to cause overall delays for at least 40% of builds.

I'm just a dumb marketing guy, but use, read and create data graphs all the time -- but I don't quite understand what this chart is showing. Can you elaborate at all? What are the p20,40, 60, 80, 90, 95 in the legend for instance?

How reliable is Jeep status once in shipping? I’ve been in shipping for two weeks. I have an eta of 6/16 - 6/30, but my dealer says it’s still sitting at mopar in Ohio. Dealer also says it hasn’t moved out of KZS status.
