The dealer told me it usually takes about 7 days from the day they put in the order for a VIN/VON to be assigned. e.g., if they put in the order on a Monday, then the VON is usually assigned the following Monday.

I struggled between v6 or v8, and Limited vs Overland.

I ordered mine (Overland, white/saddle, v6) about 3 days before you. I too am NOT looking forward to the 8-12 week wait!

But hey, yours, like mine will be worth the wait!

Congrats!

Congrats to u too!

After alot of research I had a pretty easy decision choosing what I wanted thanks to this forum. The color choice was the tough part. I didn't want the air suspension so I made my limited like an overland without that suspension. Also I have a v6 Tacoma with 50 less horses (with plenty of power) so the v6 jeep should be plenty to keep me happy(plus its gonna be the wife's main vehicle). Do u know if your dealer entered your email with the order? I hear they can and jeep sends you emails each step of the way..

Re: Placed my order!! It's gonna be a long 8 weeks!!

All right you lot......our CRD Laredo with quadralift was ordered on 23 September!!
It arrived in Brisbane in Aus on 10 February and is now stuck in quarantine at the port - with two other shipments from the US.
Best estimate I can get is mid March maybe delivery. Yep - that's getting on to 6 months!
8 Weeks???
I wish.

It might not take 8 weeks to get it. I ordered mine and it arrived at my dealership in Washington state in less than 4 weeks...

I'm just down the coast a couple states from WA and although I was told it would take 8-10 weeks, I took delivery in less than a month. I also got the VON from my dealer the same time I watched the Sales Manager enter the order into the computer.

Re: Placed my order!! It's gonna be a long 8 weeks!!

See I didn't see any orders go through so I worry they haven't even placed one yet. Do dealers wait and order a couple cars at a time so they get a truck load?? 4 weeks would be awesome though!
