We ordered the Premium Cloth Seats 5 1/2 weeks ago and everything seemed good, but within the last week they have shown up as "late availability" on Edmonds and on the build and price area of Jeep.com they cannot be selected (although that was intermittent).

I think that's our problem, but being 3 weeks over the build time and even a few days past delivery without any movement or word from Jeep is really frustrating.

Our dealer seems to know a lot less than I do about all of this...but that's probably because of my OCD about this Jeep and any info that comes out.

Interesting. I have ordered the leather package, so my delay may be related to something else I guess. I've been OCD about this too and it's starting to drive me a little crazy. I just ready for everything to be said and done.

Re: Scheduled ship date

The dealer was kind enough to email me today to let me know I'm finally out of D1 and moving down the assembly line!

Re: Scheduled ship date

VOTS reports that my TH is now in final inspection! Does anyone have insight on how long that phase generally takes? Also, how long does it usually take to actually ship once it passes inspection?

Mine sat in final inspection for about 7 weeks. But mine was also one of the first ever built so I doubt you'll have that problem. Probably only a couple days before moving to shipping. Probably expect between 5 and 10 days for shipping.

Re: Scheduled ship date

Thanks Q Tech. I freaked out a bit when I read that first sentence. Hopefully mine will be done much sooner than that. I only live about 45 minutes from the plant, so I really wish I could just go pick it up myself.

Re: Scheduled ship date

Are there any good guess-estimates on how long it takes from Order to Delivery? 8-10 weeks? My salesman told me 6 weeks, but I am at a little over 4 1/2 weeks now and I still show "Production Scheduled."

My dealership's first estimate was 5-6 weeks actually. Some of it depends on how far the vehicle has to ship once finished.

I placed my order on 10/31, and sat in "production scheduled" until 11/27. After Thanksgiving though the process has gone very quickly. VOTS has said the TH has been in "final inspection" for two days now, but the dealership contacted me yesterday morning to tell me it's actually sitting in a holding yard waiting to get put on a truck.

Hopefully yours gets started really soon!

Thanks! I ordered mine on 11/5 and when I got the email with my VIN number on the 11/11, the status was "production scheduled." It's still there. I'm in western NY so hopefully once it's finally built, it'll get here quickly.

Good luck in getting yours out of the holding yard!

Re: Scheduled ship date

My TH arrived at the dealership this morning! They just let me know that it's all cleaned up and ready to go. I'll have it in just a few hours!

Re: Scheduled ship date

I ordered my TH on 11/14. Had to call the dealer to get my VON and VIN since I never got any emails after the order was placed. I called Jeep a few days ago and they told me I have an estimated shipping date of 12/20. Is there any chance of actually having it built within the next 10 days or so? I'm really hoping to be driving it by New Year's.
