Thanks! Will do.
I was in D1 Status until about 6/25 (not sure of exact date), then that baby was built in a matter of days and I got a note saying it was in shipment as of today. I think that once they actually start the build, it moves pretty fast. It is like the DMV, the line sucks but once you get to the window it goes pretty quick.

Here’s my ‘build’...JLU Sport, Ocean Blue, 6 spd, lsd, hard top, tow package, sirius. That’s it. Manual everything. Frankly it’s a wee bit upsetting I had to order what (I feel) should be a common vehicle. Possibly that is why things have gone well thus far...
Ordered by dealer 6/25 (monday)
VIN issued friday
7/5 (following thursday) D1 status (screenshot from salesman), estimated arrival at El Mirage, AZ (1hr from dealer) 7/23.
So basically a month. I know it’s not guaranteed but it feels pretty smooth thus far. The good part is it allows time to get your sh*t together before pen meets paper. The bad is, well, it floats around in my head like an upcoming court date. Lol.

2018 2-Door Rubicon, 3.6L, 8-spd auto
Here is my time line, that I will be updating in future posts to this tread:
6/09/18 Sat: Ordered at dealer (2-Door Rubicon Billet Silver, 3.6L, Auto Trans, Prem ST, almost loaded, no HT, PST or TRMS)
6/11/18 Mon: Change made to order - Changed OWL tires to BSW
6/13/18 Wed: Dealer put in order. Only after I requested my POC and VON did it got done.
6/13/18 Wed: Jeep chat confirmed VIN and D status, with an estimated 21 days in this status
6/22/18 Friday: Jeep Care call confirmed it had been D1 status for 1 day, with an estimated 28 days in this status. Also emailed dealer, they replied (with a confirming screen shot of their "system") that the estimated ship date was 7/3/18. They also stated shipping time would be 3 weeks.
7/03/18 Wed: Jeep Care call and call to dealer confirmed status G - trim
07/04/18: CryptoStickers found build sheet. Jeep Care said it was built and in inspection; they reluctantly admitted it was in status I, when I asked what status it was in between I & KZ (I wonder if "I" status is something every vehicle passes through or if something reserved for vehicles needing repair)
07/05/18: Sales person confirmed KZ status. Jeep Care call confirmed vehicle passed inspection and was ready to ship. I asked if that was status "J" or status "KZ". I was told that I was in "KZ"
07/07/18: Saturday Jeep Chat confirmed status KZL

The actual printed window sticker on your vehicle will have your name on it but the digital version from crypto does not (supposedly for security reasons).

07/10/18: Jeep Cared told me to contact dealer. While on phone, dealer calls me and says it is in

I don’t know what happened but I’m not complaining. By the way, my jeep was shipped to Baltimore Maryland

If it's in I status for more than a day, you have a quality issue that needs remediation. That can take days to weeks to resolve depending on the problem and backlog of repairs.

This may be the case for me... I am so fricking irritated with these folks. I ordered 4-23, did a prequal loan app to lock in lower rates....since then the rates have gone up twice and my 90 days will expire on thursday, which will mean new loan app, higher rates.... it went in and out ofD1 a couple times, took them 2 months to even get started...

Now I have a build sheet with a date of 7-1.... It has been in this "I" status for 9 days.... Jeep chat says it can stay in "I" status for 6 fricken weeks.... dealer does not have any intel... they only have my deposit.....

Jeep garage says same "I" status... now I am thinking something is jacked up and it failed inspection... I am over it now.....I was not expecting 4 to 5 months as interest rates continue to climb... Think I am going to have to fight for deposit back... total B.S. will never order custom Jeep again.... first time and last time, guess I learned my lesson...

Are there any Canadians on here? It seems that tracking your build isn't so simple from Canada. Any advice/insight? I ordered my hella yella 2door sport on July 3rd and still don't have a VIN.
