I ordered my fully loaded Ocean Blue JLUR on Friday and was told it might take a little longer than 6-8 weeks due to a leather shortage. Has anyone else been told this or heard of this?!?

The dealership I ordered it from on Friday. Fremont Jeep in the SF Bay Area.
Well, this is the first I’ve heard of it. It wouldn’t surprise me at this point, given all the various shortages that this initial buildout has encountered. But, from what I’ve read, the wait is worth it once you get your JL. Good luck :)

I sure hope they just pulled that one out of their butt and it's not a real issue... Waiting 6-8 weeks is already going to be very challenging for a person like myself... Fingers crossed it gets here in 4 weeks!!! :like:

I was told that too but my dealer didn’t seem too worried about it. I ordered wednesday in Houston FYI.

This is what my guy said: “We ordered it this evening….black leather shows to be on restriction right now but should pick up order Monday our next allocation.”

It ended up getting picked up Friday.

Thanks! Let's hope things start smoothing out at the factory and we all get our Jeeps sooner than we expect! :fingerscrossed:

All these potential holdups for various options tells me that jeep didn't correctly anticipate such high demand. Which sucks right now for our wait, but it's a good thing overall for the JL.

I was told the exact same thing yesterday from my dealer when I went to order. Again he didn't seem like it would be very long but who really knows....

I sure hope they can start getting outside parts in on a regular basis soon!

So has anyone else heard anything about a leather shortage recently?
