Did anyone else in this thread get a date range for their estimated ship date?

Today my dealer told me my estimated ship date was “the end of the month” and “that there wasn’t a specific day.” I’m in D1 status.

Curious if this is something that has happened to other people, or if the dealer is just blowing smoke.

My dealer sent me a screen shot of a sheet which indicated order date & estimated ship date. Per Jeep Cares, the estimated ship date isn’t accurate. Mine had an estimated ship date of 8/17 but it just went into paint so it’ll be a few more wks.

That’s what I figured. I was expecting a specific date, not “end of the month.”

I wonder if he actually even looked

Does it actually take a few weeks from paint to completion? the auto factories I've been in the entire car is done in a few hours from start to finish.

You’re correct about the actual line build being pretty fast, but there are some potentially time-consuming “off ramps” in Wrangler production prior to shipping.

Examples are: inspection and body vendor (for installation of some options).

Gotcha - what are the options that trip the requirement to go to a body vendor?

I ordered a standards 4 door Rubicon with the sky one touch top - the rest of the options I picked are interior bits.

I have not seen a comprehensive list of the “JB” body vendor items, but based upon forum comments it seems like all the Mopar goodies and “dual top” orders will send your build to the body vendor...so, that sounds like side steps, sill guards, headliners, gas filler doors, etc, etc, etc...

The amount of time your build spends in JB seems to be highly variable. ;)

So just sold my 2018 Focus RS - that empty spot in the garage is eating away at my soul.

I may have to go buy a motorcycle to fill the hole until the Wrangler arrives....

I was aiming for 2wks tops for delivery to California. It’s KZ as of today so hopefully she shows up soon!

Bye bye Civic! :like:
