Demonic, That's great news. Yours is getting close. It kills me that this stuff can't get out of the rail yards more quickly. I think mine was there for 13 days. I went through and looked up all the deliveries to the rail yard mine went to for 2017/2018 on JeepGarage.org and the average was 5 days with the shortest being same day (offload to pickup) and as long as 11. It's a killer wait for sure, but you'll get it soon i'm sure. I'm picking mine up this week and getting it wrapped before leaving for the drive home.

It seems like all the 2018s are about to find their homes. It is hard to say what has been the worst part: Taking forever to get the Power Tops started, the Power Top manufacturing pause and restart, the build by color que, or sitting idle in transit waypoints.
To me, the inaccurate tracking and false status updates just made the whole experience bazaar.

The other issue that really irks me is the fact that FCA raised the price while mine was waiting a very long time to be built. I'm out another grand due to the delay. Now I'm not getting killed because I'm still at 13% of MSRP but still it's more money's out of my mod budget.

I took delivery today and all the bad experiences washed away! I don't have lots of pics or time with the JL as I drove about 30 minutes after delivery to drop it off with Scott @XPEL, formerly Transguard, to have it nearly completely wrapped with XPEL Ultimate Plus prior to my drive back to SoCal. What a great vehicle!

What’s the height of the opened top? Any chance there’s a roof rack that would clear it? (Allowing you to still open/close the top.)

I don't know yet, but once I get back home i'm planning to measure and see if gobi's stealth rack will fit.

Congrats Trista! That looks like a 2019?
My dealer just texted me and said my 2018 arrived after ordering half a year ago haha. Now they're waiting on the title.

It is a 2019. I ordered on 9/13. I can't believe yours has taken that long. And I thought waiting almost three months was terrible...but I can tell you it was worth waiting for! I hope you feel the same way when you finally get yours!!!

If anyone wants one ASAP, PM me- I decided to go in a different direction after multiple delays and bad info and....alas....mine has now shipped and I'd love to help my dealer find it a good home.

Granite, Sky Roof Sahara, 6 speed manual, well optioned.

Mine arrived at the dealer this past Friday, but as of today they still haven’t received the title/COO from Chrysler. So I went to look at it, and get a loaner car from them in the meantime. Today is the 6-month anniversary from the day I ordered. I simply never imagined going through this...
