Hey guys,
I'm about to pull the trigger on placing an order for a 3.6 manual. I'm wondering if the lead time is extended for the manuals due to Jeep not making as many? I really don't want to miss the whole summer waiting on my jeep.

My manual was built pretty quick but delayed by the clutch issue in March. I don’t think you will see any delays over the auto.

What is a realistic outlook on delivery from place of order?
I ordered a 2 door manual. Ordered 3/7 and was quoted at around 6-12 weeks. Dealer texted this week and says it should be at the dealership this weekend. That came out to be around 55 days total. Not as fast as some, not as slow as others. But, as far as I can see, there are no longer any delays due to clutch recall.

I think your physical location plays a role, too. Mine was built on 4/8, but shipping has gone on about 3+ weeks. I'm on the West Coast, but in a major city.

Unless something radical happens, you shouldn't miss the whole summer.

My dealer said 12 weeks is normally a good bet. As others have mentioned, location is also going to impact the time, ours took almost a month to get to Maine. I just ordered a RAM and I’m looking at 16 weeks (estimate) due to chip shortage :(

Ordered 2-door Rubicon manual 3/17. I got a build sheet on 4/27. On 4/28 Jeep Chat said build is complete, awaiting Quality Control inspection.
We'll see how long delivery takes.

I have seen plenty of people posting they got their JLU in 3 weeks, from order to delivery. I don't know if any of them were manual transmission.

Dealer in NC said 8 to 10 weeks. Ordered 4 door manual with half doors on 4/13. Last night status changed to this:

I placed my order for a manual JLU on 4/7 and it was delivered to the dealership on 4/22. I believe it was trucked to the dealer direct from the factory. I’m sure it would have taken a lot longer if a train was involved.

wow, that’s great to hear! I’m always amazed how you get a VIN, and a few weeks later a car is magically made out of thousands of parts. Generally, Automotive production has always amazed me. (Also a fun YouTube rabbit hole to dive into, lol)
