Re: Ordered!!

My local Jeep dealer is placing my order tomorrow. They quoted 4-6 weeks for delivery so fingers crossed! Waiting is just going to make this already lengthy winter seem even longer!! Looking forward to warm weather and a shiny new Jeep.

Re: Ordered!!

For you guys ordering and you've been told 4-6 weeks for delivery....

PLEASE extend that to 8-12 weeks. That is our normal lead time. I don't have a single clue why dealers continue to tell customers that. It gets them very angry and then they end up NOT wanting to purchase their vehicle.

We, here at JNAP, are severely constrained right now and we WILL build your vehicle and we WILL ship it to you. The question right now is WHEN...

Just don't be disappointed when it goes past 6 weeks. I recently ordered a vehicle from BAP, a little over a year ago. I got LUCKY and got mine in 5 weeks but I know for a fact that is NOT normal.

I'm just being 100% HONEST.

If you get it in 4-6 weeks, then great!!! I'll be happy for you! But please do not be discouraged if it goes past that... that's all I'm saying.

Just keep building them like you do. It is well worth the wait.

Its not just Jeep dealers. Friend of mine ordered a new X5 and the same thing has happened. They said 2-3 weeks. Its been 4 and its still not in production even.

Dealers just are afraid to give people a realistic wait time because they think they will loose the order.

I ordered mine on 2/27 and according to the estimated dates for built, on train and delivery, 3/20, 3/24, 3/30 respectively. That means it is to be built this week......I hope it does but maybe the day after St. Patty's isn't a good time (LOL). That's 4.5 weeks! I will be very happy if that ends up being correct....keep an eye out for it Marlon!!!!!!!

Re: Ordered!!

If our backlog wasn't so huge (in the many thousands), then we could probably get stuff built and delivered in 3-4 weeks!

You could have worse problems than too many orders

EXACTLY! Mine was ordered July 10 and delivered Sept. 20 - WELL worth the wait! I figured they had to look hard to find a "no sunroof" solid roof.

Like no orders?

Regarding the constraint... put it to you this way. You know that summer shutdown that most plants have?

JNAP?

Forget it. Canceled again for the 3rd year in a row.
