I know this may be frustrating to you. But you are two steps ahead of all of us. Your is built! I am hoping my build , which was scheduled for last Saturday, is imminent. I have been waiting to get my hand on this Jeep for over a year now...

Others who ordered the 2.0 turbo will wait a little longer to advance to the que you have arrived at.

Correct! We wanted to tow our new jeep behind our motorhome in September but I guess we will leave without a toad until somewhere in October!

I'm not sure if this is good or bad, but my chat with Jeep Chat today yielded a case being opened on my behalf with the ordering team and some sort of update within the next few days. I'll report back if I hear anything.

Power Top now available as option on Jeep.com.
Jeep.com must be driven by someone who wanted to kill the sales of the Sky One-Touch Power Top. Why would you add the option right after you turn off the ability to order?

That is pure marketing genius from the mind of a crazy person. (Or the same marketing committee that offered three gray models.);)

It is Thursday at 5:34PM Central Time. I am still in D status. I asked if my schedule date was still scheduled for last Saturday and they said they can no longer provide accurate scheduling...
I'm hoping that somebody else here on to the forum has it started the build process for their Sky One Touch Power Top... Everything seems to have stalled out.

I'm still waiting on an email from my case. I'll follow it up tomorrow and see if there's any status update from there.

I was told today that my Sahara with Power Top was in JS (shipped to storage) Status. I hope this means awaiting shipping. Jeep Chat said no shipping date yet. I hope I am getting close.
I am guessing they ran Sahara models with power tops down the line.

Still nothing on my end as well, stuck in D status. I pressed on the case number that my the prior person I spoke to opened and the Jeep Chat specialist couldn't provide me any information. I asked if they could provide the first date I went to D status (I believe this was June 20th), but he also couldn't provide me any details on that. I can say this was by far my least fruitful jeep chat and indicates to me that they really don't know anything even though he took nearly 10 minutes to respond to my original query about my status and case. We'll see where this goes.

As of yesterday, here are the 2018 JL options that are closed/restricted from ordering (none are dated):
  • 18MY JL Jeep Wrangler STJ Sky One-Touch Power Top has been closed for ordering until further notice.
I saw this on another thread. It really makes me wonder.

Yes, I believe I saw that the Trail Mgmt System had the same status as you're showing for the power top. It's definitely a cause for concern. I'm not super in need to have the Jeep tomorrow, but I'd also prefer not to have to wait until winter to do the 900 mile trip back from Denis Dillon. It'd be nice if they could just give us a clear answer, but I guess that's too much to ask.

That's the point for me. I'm prepared to be flexible and wait for it, just let me know when. In a large manufacturing organization like FCA/Jeep, either:

(i) they have a very good sense of when it's likely to be delivered, and have made a decision not to tell us, which I find to be a really crappy way to earn customer loyalty; or

(ii) they really are disorganized and have no idea of an estimated date for delivery of our orders, which I personally find to be very concerning and which would give me increased concerns about quality control, reliability, etc.
