Ordered April 23. Finally delivered July 11. For some reason, it sat in a railyard near Seattle for 3-4 weeks before finally being delivered to my dealership. They wouldn't let me pick it up myself, otherwise I would have had it mid/late June. Regardless, it was worth the wait!

Just received an email from the my dealership's salesman saying that my Jeep has moved to "JS" status (shipped to storage), so it has been built and is waiting on a rail car to ship it. Wonders never cease... :)

Congratulations! Hopefully you don't have to wait too much longer.

2018 2D JL Rubicon
She's here! 39 days. Ordered 6/7. Delivered 7/16. Beautiful...

I have to give a shout out to our dealer, http://napervillecjdr.com. The first couple dealers we visited were completely disinterested in ordering or talking price on a 2D Rubicon, but here it was totally different. I've read a few others out here looking for a good place to buy a jeep in Northern Illinois, so if you're in the Chicago burbs, check them out. Tony in sales was great -- young kid, also into jeeps so that makes it fun when people are passionate about their stuff, and Mike & Dave in finance were great too. Worked out a deal I'm happy with before even finding these forums. No need to fly, local dealer, great price and experience. :) If you do shop there, tell them Mike with their first 2D Rubicon sent you.

Oh and it drives great! 50 miles already just from finding places to go. So smooth and quiet... Love the Uconnect, it links up as soon as my phone is inside. Contact images, text messages, hands free, all features I should have had the last few years but have been living without.

If it doesn't make it here within the next 17 days, it's going to have to wait at the dealership until September for me to get back from the UK and Ireland.

But you'll be having too much fun in the UK and Ireland to care! Maybe?
Another month driving around on the wrong side of the road... And trying new beers...

So many beers, so little time...

Last time I spent a month there, I tried a few different beers every day and I didn't come close to running out of beers to try that were being sold at the local Tesco.markets. Tesco is kind of a UK version of a Walmart store. And that's not including the various beers that I drank at the local pubs where I have no idea what their name was.

That's the same exact day I ordered my 2 door soft top wrangler... today dealer told me that the rep said mine is done but not being placed on the rail due to it being a 2 door. That the 4 doors have priority for rail space over the 2 doors.... wtf?

Called jeep chaf and they escalated my case for a fourth time.. the gal I spoke to l said that my last case escalation. Had been vectored to the wrong department and that someone should contact me in a few days...

I dont know... this seems like pretty poor customer service to me...I am now over 12 weeks in, I status since July 1st, no one has am answer, no concern, no consequences, my 90 day loan pre qual is now up and rates went up .6 % since I ordered... getting close to cancelling order... first and last time I custom order a jeep...

Or just don't buy a car that you can't just pay cash for? :)

Could have paid have cash, but right in middle of classic car restoration and wanted to take advantage of low rates... here's a thought buddy, maybe next time I will not put a deposit (and mine was over 25%) on a vehicle that the manufacturer and dealer both both stated would only take 6 to 8 weeks fill...you can keep your smart ass comments to yourself...
