Don't mean to burst your bubble, but that shipment date is highly unlikely. They will start building them, according to Milous, on July 18th. They should start coming into dealerships at the beginning of September.

Re: Just got a shipment date on my 2012 laredo x

They still seem to have issues with availability of train cars. For 2011s, once they rolled of the production line, it seemed random and anywhere from one week to 8 weeks transit time (with a couple exceptions). Usually they go into storage for awhile waiting for a train. Usually about 3 weeks overall storage/transit plus or minus a week. I dunno if Minnesota is on the slow trail or fast trail . Milous has stats in his tracking thread.

For example, a couple months ago I was watching two different Jeeps, identically optioned and rolled of the line within an hour of each other. One went right on a train without a wait and was delivered to the Boston area dealer in 12 days, the other went to storage for awhile and was eventually delivered to the dealer in 22 days, During the same time period, one of my buddies took 23 days, another 46 days.

By the way, all of these were built and shipped about a week later than the original estimate provided when they went D1.

Sign up as a site supporter and get just about as much delivery info as there is, and the status of other orders. Very useful for those of you impatient.
