Close to delivery of my JLS so I have been pestering Jeep for updates. Called Tuesday and was told it is still being scheduled for shipping from the factory. Yesterday I called and was told it was off-loaded at the rail yard in Winston-Salem, NC, 60 miles from the dealership. Told they only update their system every 48 hours. Waiting on the call from the dealer. My wife's birthday is this weekend and she said I can't go pick it up til Monday. I may have to leave her...

I can do a drive by but there's usually thousands of cars at the rail yard.

Who did you call that was able to give that specific of details as to the location? Every time I try, either Larry, Moe or Curly seem to answer is on Jeep chat.

I just called the 1-877 number. I think it's hit or miss, some are more helpful than others. I stopped using the online chat since they weren't helpful at all. You get better service actually speaking to someone.

@Sean L that would be great. It shouldn't be hard to spot. GCM Sahara, black soft top. I mean, how many of those can there be...
I'll see what I can do, its surrounded by woods, I might be able to see if its near the fence. Otherwise I have no access to get in.

Honestly man, when you look at FCA’s build schedule, finding a new wife seems definitely easier than getting a JL this year !!! Lol

Likewise, today I was given an ETA date to my dealership in Utah. Avoid chat.

It might be easier, but in my experience a fully loaded Rubicon is much cheaper. Otherwise, once again by experience, you get rid of her and she takes the Jeep. At the time, I thought it was worth it.
