The ONLY thing I can think of to explain the delay is that Jeep may be prioritizing loaded Wranglers first. Those with higher trim levels and more profits. All companies do that, unfortunately.
I had the same thought. But that would have worked in my favor. JLURD w/ almost everything imaginable and an embarrassingly high MSRP. Ordered 7 weeks and 4 days ago, so 8 week club imminent. Still in D.

I orderd a JLURD fully loaded with half doors except I got a color matched 3 piece hardtop instead of the SOT. Ordered 13 weeks ago tomorrow, just recently dropped from D1 back to D. It might come before Christmas…

Yuck, sorry. That's awful. I've dropped back to D three times now, at least according to a shift from "gathered" to "gathering" in Jeep Chat. The only things I really _didn't_ get were any hard top option and the half doors.

It's not the wait I mind as much as the lack of information. =(

The only date I had was an estimated ship date of 9/1 the dealer gave me a few weeks ago. Now that that’s passed and I’m back in D It makes the wait harder. I agree the lack of information is the worst part.

Pretty much the same, “it says the end of the month” during August. Now it’s “we don’t have a date, hopefully this month.”

They’ve blamed it on chips a couple of times, but they makes little sense and o me as the ones before me that were ordered after… also need chips?

I blame Tier I & II suppliers. They are probably missing their ship dates and commitments so that is interrupting the flow of material and build schedules are shifting. :(

Yeah, the thought crossed my mind. I know little about manufacturing so everything is just assumption on my part. For what it's worth, the dealer reached out this morning and noted that it just seems to be sitting there and they're going to see if they can figure anything out as well.

So it isn't like they're not being helpful, it's that the ordering process is a rather opaque box full of razorblades and pain.
