True that. I did the same calculations.
Although I haven’t heard of anyone here in the Great White North getting below invoice pricing. So perhaps that evens it out.

You don’t pay the same in Canada! I did a compare and dollar for dollar you get a Jeep for about 4k cheaper on the build I was looking at

If your Canadian your in a different boat that Americans. Americans will get their orders for Rubicon s. Canadians won't. I ordered mine June 19th and they say It won't be made till October.... Then dec for delivery...
I'm not sure why your dealer would tell you that. I got no such warning, or update that this kind of delay should be expected. I ordered July 7. Sure, I've got no VIN still, but all Jeepchat said they were waiting for was parts (I'm presuming LED's) and then the build would be scheduled. Converting an order to a 2019 (which is slated for October) is not as easy as changing the model year on the sticker. It would require re-ordering, and FCA would have told your dealer that.

Cause FCC sucks at telling dealers anything..... I got my VIN and in D status. But the point is if you are American you get your car alot faster. You might still get your VIN soon but my dealer called FCC and they said no production on Rubicons till October. But I got my VIN 2 or 3 weeks after so maybe things have changed

I hope they have. I ordered a rubicon on June 18th, order was accepted, 8 weeks this week and still no VIN. My dealer told me this week it’s scheduled for production early September.

Did you get a von number? I ordered 8/20 and had my vin and von on 8/22. I was still told by my dealer that it would be until the end of October.

Received a VIN on August 20th, 9 weeks after ordering. Haven’t received anything concrete regarding scheduling or est. delivery. So it could very well be October.

I ordered on 6/23/2018 and have been in D status for over 60 days. Every time I check with JeepCares it's always the same "All parts are in waiting on scheduling" I thought this would be fun to surprise my daughter for her birthday but that didn't happen and this is turning into a big disappointment. I am thinking about canceling but I do not think Jeep really cares.

Ordered mine in the evening hours of 8/21, finished building 8/31! Now we'll see how long into takes to get to CA. 4-door Rubicon, Firecracker, 3.6, auto, black hardtop/fenders, LED, steel bumpers (and other options that don't seem to be affecting build time...)

I think its based on location, what is happening to you is happening to basically every canadian order. We've all been waiting.
