Finish got my VIN....now what?

I'm relatively new here...so I'm hoping some of the JG veterans can give me an idea of what to expect next.

In late November we ordered an Overland (V6) with frost/biege interior. Today, I received a VIN from the dealer with an estimated delivery date of late Jan or early Feb. Does this date seem reasonable? Anything else we should know at this point? Thanks much--this Forum rocks!

Re: Finish got my VIN....now what?

Welcome to the forums. Now that you have your VIN, you are in D1 status and your wait begins. Hopefully with that combination you should not have any extended delays however it is possible.

As for next steps, I would become a site supporter then provide Milous with your vin he will be able to provide tracking information on the build/shipping progress of your jeep.

Congratz on your new purchase, they are worth the wait

You can either send Milous a private message or post your VIN in the tracking forum. Either way will work and then you will be added to the list.

You can also call 800.992.1997 and give them your VIN and they can tell you status. They've even told me to feel free to call weekly if I like to get updates.

Having a VIN doesn't automatically put you in D1 status. I have a VIN but am still in D status....... Regardless, being able to get the twice daily updates here is priceless, well worth the cost of admission.

+1

You do get an estimated delivery date when you go from "D" to "D!" status although I was given an estimated production date of third week in Jan by Chrysler Customer Service when I was in "C" status. Order date 11/22 and "C" status almost right away and "D" status around 4 weeks later.
