They haven't shipped a single Diesel yet, once they do, you will be able to predict better. Donate to upgrade your level to get tracking on MOTS (Milous Order Tracking System).
Ya, I've read some people been waiting a long time! I've been waiting for many many years for a Diesel to come to the JK, but never has. Decided to jump ship to the GC.

As for the order tracking, is that different or more detailed than the regular Jeep order tracker? My dealer said he would send me info for tracking the build.

I went through the D1's the other day and there are still quite a few ahead of us, well it's single digits but based on the number that have been built over the past month and the days between the D1 and build, I would guess we'll be lucky to see anything next week. Maybe since we're both DCR they'll follow each other down the line But there are quite a few 8/30 D1's so I'm just waiting for any of those to go, since that means mine should follow shortly. And maybe by then they'll actually be shipping...

Celebrated my 32nd Anniversary, the Red Sox win the AL east and my order moved to D1 status today, 3 for 3 - all in all a great day!

Congrats to kazii who finally made D1 today with a 10/14 delivery. I hope your delivery date holds true! Surely they will ship soon. The yards are filling up with CRDs.

With 3% under invoice, you can say you got a better deal than most. The highest I have seen is 6.5% (The D/C group claims 7%, but their dealer tacks on a $499 fee, which brings it down to 6.5%). Personally I got 5.5% off in Texas. If you feel like you got a good price, that is all that matters. I am guessing that over 90% of the JGC diesel buyers paid 1% under invoice or more.

Congrats on your new purchase, and become a level 3 or higher member here, and you get access to MOTS tracking. VOTS thru Jeep is worthless. MOTS will show where your Jeep is every step of the way after it leaves the plant. Become a level 4 supporter, and Milous (The most interesting man in the world) will send you a detailed build sheet when your Jeep comes off the production line. For less than $30 bucks, it gives you something to obsess over until you take delivery, and it supports this great site!!!

The only thing Shannon forgot to mention, is you get access to inside info and software updates very often well ahead of the public. We like to help out everyone but as a Premium Member we can look into some of those extra details...

Thanks very much. Went away for a week, had Friday off, checked my status later that day, and had good news. I was surprised at the short interval between estimated delivery and going D1.

Kaziii--interestingly, though mine isn't a CRD, I went D1 at the same time as you did and show the same 10/14 estimated delivery. I've been looking at other builds (because of the obsession) and timing the ones that end up in or go through my location (Atlanta). I don't know where you are but I have...a theory

Given that my order went PR on the same day as orders opening for October production, I'm thinking it went D1 yesterday with scheduling for build in the first week of October...you might be in the same boat scheduling-wise. In my case, without much exception, rail transport seems to always take 6-8 days to Atlanta. So, factor in - few days for the build/inspection and movement, then a couple/three days to get to the dealer once here, and I'm figuring it will begin build around 10/1 or so.

Yours might be scheduled similarly--provided the CRDs are shipping by then

Reading back through this post and even factoring in my being an engineer leaves only one conclusion--I am obsessed...

I am in New Jersey. However, it seems possible that we could be on the same shipment out. Fill up a load full then send them out together. I have head that, sometimes, being the first one in a storage area or the first one in a transfer area is not always a good thing. You go to the furthest area which makes you the last to be reloaded. I wonder how good the computers are at predicting this stuff. Either way, it is something I have no control over so, after all this time, I am used to just sitting, watching, and anticipating.

I don't think that being an engineer makes you obsessed. Just about everyone here, myself included, is obsessed at some level.

Has anyone received a CRD build sheet yet?...or does that happen when we hit KZ status?

For all level 4 supporters, Milous will PM you with your build sheet when it is built. I have my build sheet, and I am still showing "In inspection".
