FYI, this is consistent with what everyone has been saying, but since this is an official communication from an actual FCA employee (a reply to my email to them using the recently-opened [email protected] email, which is the email equivalent of the newly opened hotline), thought I'd post it here for everyone. Exact text of an email I just received:

2018 JEEP WRANGLER UNLIMITED SPORT I am writing with regards to your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport! According to provided resources, your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport is still in the Sub-Firm Schedule Status (C). With that being said, our records show your vehicle was ordered with the Trail Rail Management System (CMD) which is not slated to go into production until late-May. Please keep in mind as this timing is projected, it is subject to change. I will continue to track the status of your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport order & provide any and all updates as they become available. We appreciate your patience as we launch this exciting new product. Sincerely, Nicole Jeep Product Information Center​

So now that it’s early June...any updates for this system to buy as its own kit?
I believe June 8th was the date of expected release..........but we have been "misinformed" before by FCA:bandit:

The purpose is a rail system that will provide additional tie down points in the rear. There seems to be a supplier issue with these right now, so if you want your order in a timely manner I would suggest not ordering them. They can always be added later on as an accessory.

Why are more than 4 tie downs needed? Surely it must do more.

It also has a module that attaches to the back swing gate that will facilitate hanging/connecting of accessories. There is a plastic insert you just pop out that is then replaced with the module. It is even labeled "Trail Rail Ready".

Good new is that I just received confirmation from FCA that the TRMS was causing delays in numerous builds, however the system is now available and should not cause any future delays with ordering or delievers
