It's not really first-ordered-first-built. Jeep will schedule production runs considering color, model, options, etc.
I ordered the first 1/2 hour of the first day of the 2012 order window. My Jeep was put in the second group of builds and built on the 7th day of production. But it was shipped before most built earlier because the earliest builds were held for longer quality control inspections.
Some options that require moving the Jeep to another facility, like chrome package, black package, may delay shipment by a couple of weeks or more.
Two or three days isn't necessarily going to put you behind a first day order.
