I get why you guys are pissed with the delays, but these are weird times and supply lines are effected throughout the industry.

It’s not so much the delay as it is lack of communication with loyal customers that put money down trusting that Jeep/FCA would live up to expectations that they set. If the situation changes, they should be doing a better job of managing expectations and supporting loyal customers, IMO.

I guess but honestly this delay will be forgotten once you get it. It will be THE most amazing jeep ever produced and worth the wait.

I don't like waiting either, and I'd love to at least know how much I've committed to spending, but I'm not at all surprised. I guess my expectation wasn't very high, having just dealt with the Gladiator fiasco 2 years ago.

My tune will change quickly though if these start showing up on lots before we get ours, like they did to us with the Gladiator "launch."

I pinged the dealer and they shared the D status and VIN, It looks like the half doors have plastic uppers that are removable. Looking forward to people starting get these!



Did you recently get your VIN & D status? Curious what “Jeep Chat” would tell you today... it seems they’re now giving cookie-cutter answers likely due to a broader issue.

My fingers are crossed you move to D1 SOON & hoping those with ship dates don’t have any more slips in their dates!

Got notified from the dealer today 392 will be in at the dealership a month to month and a half verified from the factory. Asked about the price said he didnt see it on the screen he was looking at. Ordered snazzberry with tow package and half doors, slush mats and mesh cover when the hardtop is off. Anybody got a link to where we can look it up online if you've got the vin?

So dumb question, I didn't think you could get the one touch with half doors... With the half doors, there are no windows, correct ? so it can't be closed up... does look like it would fun..

Cheers

The half doors come with removable "uppers" that have windows in them. (see attached pics below)

From the looks of the Build & Price configurator, those removable "uppers" appear to be the same material as the soft top & soft top windows.

They come with either "standard" uppers, or "premium" uppers, and I am not certain what the difference is between the two. I'm wondering if it's the same difference between the standard soft top, or the premium soft top. (different materials?)

Also, the "Dual-Door Package" (the only way to get half doors) is available with any top I believe. You just can't order them with the "Dual Top" package because there is physically no room to ship both the second set of doors, and the soft top together inside the Jeep itself.

Hope that helps! Here's the pics..

This is the first time I've ordered a Jeep, so I'm pretty new to this, but the only things I've come across so far are the Jeep Chat (which is very hit or miss, depending on who you get,) and the search tool created by one of the forums mods. Here's a link to that page if you're not already familiar with it... https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/fo...sticker-and-build-sheet-order-tracking.12503/

Does anyone else know of any other search options?

I just don't believe it. How would this one person be the only one outside of the factory who actually knows when they will arrive. Sounds like speculation from an excited dealer.

2021 392 Rubicon
Not to be that guy that strays away from the topic of this thread, but I guess it’s better than the Raptor and political post on here while we wait for the price, but what is everyone’s take on the 392s weight? From my research a 392 Hemi weighs 745 pounds. A Pentastar weighs about 320 pounds. How do you think this will equate to us that seriously rock crawl this Jeep? I’m all for the sound and massive power of the hemi, which is why I placed an order. I’m just trying to fathom an extra 400+ pounds on my old JL 3.6 Pentastar I had when I was rock crawling with two people and camping gear. And that’s basically the “dry” or “empty” weight of the 392 Rubicon.
Also a 3.0 Ecodiesel engine weighs about 500 pounds and my JL ecodiesel I just sold felt like a slug in the snow when I went wheeling. My buddies in Pentastars would have an easier time on steep inclines and deep snow that I did, so just wondering what the negative sides are to a 700+ pound engine when wheeling. Maybe anyone that has done a conversation could chime in how they feel. 😎

I have a 2014 2 door with 1 ton axels and everything else, it is just over 6,000 pounds and it has never taken a bypass and goes everywhere. Even the Rubicon Trail and it never had to be pushed, pulled and towed through any of the obstacles. It goes everywhere. Weight is not an issue. People in buggies put water in their tires to add weight when on heavy climbs, it only helps.

agree, but I think weight should always be considered. However there is good weight and bad. 1 tons are stupid heavy but provide some big protection against breaking along with lower center of gravity. The weight that comes with adding water sucks BUT the benefit is not the weight itself, more the wieght down low thing.

I think a heavy motor without big axles might be an issue in some tech, but passing up this rig for that reason would be a huge mistake if one is in the market for this history making machine.

WHen offroading in tech there really isnt much need (ok, sometimes yes) for a big powerful motor. A light motor without many do-dads added to it will fair quite well. In trials like competion they only add the weight that absolutely need to have.

Still, who cares. Power is just fun and this is MERICA!...or used to be. lol

I agree and I think the math is simple: get the 392 and when stuff breaks (and it will) just fork over the money to upgrade i.e. upgraded axels & suspension parts are a lot cheaper and easier to upgrade than upgrading a motor
