I’ve been waiting for 19 WEEKS. That’s 133 days. I order my JL 4DR 6 speed on June 5.

After 8 weeks I started to complain and neither the dealership nor FCA can help. They said they had to “scrap” the first car.

I did demand and receive a demo car to drive a week ago. You see, I traded in a car and my husband and I have been sharing his JK all summer.

So seriously now, I am looking for a few ideas from you all.

How would you play this out when the Jeep finally arrives? Should I hold out for the 2019 models?

Oh man. That's terrible. Hmmm...at this point is it even in queue to be built?

I would have cancelled that order a long time ago and started fresh with a new order.

Took delivery last Thursday, 19 weeks in total
The soft top and LED’s held it up. After driving at night I can say the LED’s are completely worth the wait- brightest lights I’ve ever had, might not even need my light bar now!

Ordered my 2019 JLUR (with restrictions on V6 and Steel Bumpers) Friday (10/12) and can't wait! Emailed dealer this morning to see if they picked up the order and he said they did, I'm in D status.

Now we wait, hopefully not forever.

I ordered a 2019 JLUR red, cold weather, tow hitch, 3.6, 6 speed, hardtop,
Proximity entry, floor mats on 10/17/2018. Got a D1 status 10/26/2018 with a ship date of 11/21/2018. Dealer said it should take three weeks after ship date to receive Jeep in Queen Creek, AZ. I know these dates are ballpark but just wanted to share. My wife is not happy that I wanted to order it, It is for her. Jeep #3 in the family.
