time from order to delivery?

Hi All.
Been lurking here for a while but first post. I'm curious if anybody knows what the current (as of late January 2014) build time is for a JGC limited with 3.0 diesel? I ordered one a few days ago and am trying to estimate when it will arrive (coordinating when to sell me existing vehicle).

I see that there is a 720 page thread about "production" but I got lost in it and never found an answer.

thanks in advance.
Wiley

I ordered on 1/4 and mine just went to inspection today. Estimated delivery date of 2/1, I don't think it'll make that mark but at this point it probably won't be too far off.

I ordered on 12/20 and have sitting in the Inspection phase for several days. Current estimated delivery is 1/31, though I expect it to be the late first/early second week of Feb in reality.

Re: time from order to delivery?

Ordered Nov 26 and it was delivered on Jan 7th. Now that is over the holidays so I think 4 to 5 weeks is probably a safe estimate. Have fun with timing the sale of your car unless you are selling it to a dealer. I tried to do the same thing and although it actually worked out where I did not spend a day without a car it was several weeks of extreme stress. If you look on line for car rentals, apparently there are hidden specials that you can find. Found a car rental for under 300 dollars for 4 weeks but I only got that rate using two specific dates. Any other dates for 4 weeks was like twice that amount.

8 weeks - but I ate all of the holidays (turkey, Christmas, NY) during my build so I may be an anomaly.

And of course I sat in the rail yard for a week.

Ordered 25 NOV arrived 16 JAN. I think 6-7 weeks is nominal for our SFU's...

Damn Fun2drive I ordered mine the day after yours and already have it two weeks. Of course yours went on a longer ride, mine only went to Virginia.

This next week has to be agonizing for you. In Feb it will be all good. Week 2 and over 1000 miles and I still cannot wait to drive it.

Re: time from order to delivery?

Yep others had theirs built after mine and got it a full 2 weeks after mine arrived in River Oaks. Luck of the draw but better to plan for a longer build time then be on this site (like me ha ha) 12 times a day checking MOTS...

Re: time from order to delivery?

Thanks for the replies! My dealer (Dave Smith Motors in the Idaho panhandle) is sticking with "10-12" weeks. They say that other dealers may be able to get them quicker due to being less distance from the factory.

How do you get signed up for the tracking website? Dealer is telling me that they can't give me any updates until they get a VIN. And they won't tell me how long that takes. Kinda weird. Order was placed 1/20/14

I'm not in a super big hurry for this vehicle. But I do want to know when to expect it so I can plan accordingly.

Re: time from order to delivery?

The VOTS site (https://www.jeep.com/vots/ ) is free from Jeep, you just need your VIN or VON (vehicle order number) and last name. If I remember correctly that is updated once a day, in the morning sometime. In theory your dealer signs you up for email updates when they place the order and input your email address, but that never worked for me. I had to pretty much beat the VON out of my dealer, but eventually received it.

If you sign up for Level 3 or 4 membership here, you get access to the MOTS tracking system that Milous maintains. It updates more frequently than VOTS, has more detail and supports the forum.

Thanks. How long does it usually take after placing an order to get a VIN?

Got ours the next day - looks like it is generated by the factory as soon as the dealer plugs your order into the system. Now just try and be patient - it's not easy!
