Current TH Order Date to Build Date Timing

I'm planning to order a CH-TH. What's the current/typical time cycle from ordering a CH-TH @ a dealer to factory build date? For a variety of reasons relating to travel, superstition and challenges with my 2002 launch year Liberty, I'd prefer a Jan 2014 build date.....not 2013.

TIA.
Desert Hiker

Re: Current TH Order Date to Build Date Timing

Its all over the map at this moment, I would guess ordering first two weeks of December should get you a January build as the factory I think is scheduled for shutdown between Christmas to New Years. It could get pulled immediately (likely not) or pushed into February (likely).

Re: Current TH Order Date to Build Date Timing

On one of the other boards someone placed an order a week ago and within 4 days had an estimated delivery date of mid-December - if the estimate holds up. I ordered mine on Monday and hope I'm that lucky.

Re: Current TH Order Date to Build Date Timing

Thanks for the replies. Indeed, it seems all over the boards - MT's post indicates it could end up in build quite quickly.

Any more experience to report out there?

I am past 4 weeks in D1 status. My estimated delivery date is tomorrow, but my vehicle is still in pieces at the factory.

Jeep has not given me any word as to why it is 2 weeks beyond what they said it would take. I hope your build goes faster.

Re: Current TH Order Date to Build Date Timing

From reading the posts on various message boards I'm beginning to think that the 'Estimated delivery' is more wild guess than estimate. On another board one member was told by the dealer that their Cherokee had an estimate delivery date of March 17th.

Oh...I have come to believe that their "estimate" is a shot in the dark.

The March 17th guy was probably me. I ordered through a military overseas program last week.

My representative responded in an email where I asked why it would take so long. Here is his reply:

"The reason for this is the Jeep Cherokee is in high demand and there was a log jam of orders that had restricted options that just became available that is why the timeline is pushed out."

Did you go with the Leather Interior or Premium Seats?

There are indications due to the demand of Cherokee and Wrangler at the moment the plants will not shut down as normal. Same for Grand Cherokee This came from my dealer last week as I just placed an order for another Grand myself. Wife is considering a TH for herself, she just can't decide to go with the Anvil or wait for the later available color she wants (mango tango orange or whatever it will be called)

Re: Current TH Order Date to Build Date Timing

I went to several dealers this past weekend and got date ranging form 4-12 weeks depending on the dealer. The place where I ended up ordering advised 4-5 weeks as of saturday, but when I called today they had not even placed the order yet b/c they were waiting on allocation to place the order? It seems strange to me that Jeep would hold back on taking orders like that. What makes it even worse that the exact TH I want is sitting at a dealer 600 miles away in a difference state. I wish Jeep would just pull that one and bring it to my dealer.
