Hold on. . . you're suggesting that some dealers might not actually have a working knowledge of how, when, and why the products they sell are built, but take a stab at it anyway? :facepalm: Ok, I'm kidding. That is a very interesting excerpt you quoted, thank you for posting it as I wondered how they did it. The logistics must be extremely complex - constantly changing requirements for parts and installation skills etc - to which I tip my hat to the process and those who wrangle it (pun intended?). But hey, it's what they do, just refining what Mr. Ford started. Now I'm off to search for that UoT paper to read while I wait wait wait.

Dang, I was really looking forward to sorting thru pages of Google results to find that doc and you spoiled the fun of the chase for me. No, not really. Thank you for posting it, as I'm curious and geeky enough to enjoy learning about such things, especially when it's related to something I'm excited about. My personal productivity, however, is about to take a hit while to read the report. Amazing to me that FCA would allow such access to their process, facility, and supplier info, but apparently it's not confidential at all like you might assume.

In two days my JL has moved about 25 miles from one suburb of Chicago to another. ETA to drop point (Council Bluffs, IA) is still 1/15. 450 miles to drop then 60 miles by truck.

2019 JLU Rubicon 3.6L in Firecracker Red.

Ordered 12/10. Jeep Chat today tells me that all of my parts have been gathered and the build should start "soon". I'm only one month in and already the wait is killing me.

Lucky! I ordered pretty much the exact same wrangler as you on the same day and so far all I have is a VIN (no build sheet yet). However, my dealer did tell me today that they are showing an ETA of Feb. 9th (for what that's worth).

I had told myself it was probably going to be the end of March before I saw it, so anything in February is a bonus.

'19 JL 2dr
Ordered on 12/24
D1 status on 1/7
Build sheet 1/9
No estimated delivery yet.

That all seems very fast to me, unless a relatively simple order helps (2dr Sport S, manual transmission, premium soft top). Hopefully it continues along quickly!
Received the window sticker yesterday, and apparently in KZ status as of 1/9 also per Jeep Chat. Hopefully there's a train going east in the near future!

Well yesterday was supposed to be the day the Jeep was delivered to the dealership. Even though FCA said it should be 1/10 my dealer said their info showed the ETA as TBD. It never showed up and I have requested updated info from FCA and nothing but crickets. I think this must be what Charlie Brown goes through every time Lucy pulls the football away.
