If that's real, that's outstanding. Hope my early (8/8) baja order gets similar priority...

I'd lover to hear ArcherAce chime in on this...are Tank's currently being produced?? Assume not, so is it reasonable to see this kind of turn-around?

Per the tracking tanks are being produced, I see several in D1.

Yes most Wranglers go from Frame to Off the line in under a day. Mine did it all on 8/8.

Someone posted a picture of a build sheet they had found in the bad after it was built, it went though in something like 14 - 16 hours if I remember right.

I'm in D1, that is just scheduled to be produced. Doesn't mean that any Tank's are actually rolling through the line.

Per the original post on Page 1, Tank is not scheduled to go into production until 09/02.

I understand that, but didn't think you could go from Frame all the way to the railcar in one day. I'm not saying that it couldn't happen, just that it seemed unlikely.

For one you're assuming that the vehicle is not selected for any additional/more thorough inspections...then again the plant is running 16-hour shifts so maybe it does all happen that quick.

But we also know a couple of Tank Rubicons have already hit dealer lots... I hope they are spraying bodies Tank in preparation for the 9/2 production start. Gives me hope of getting my orange one sooner.

I wonder how the paint production is done... do they have several paint lines or run batches of one color, etc.

Yep, I'm D1 right now and not really expecting any different until 9/2. If the process is that quick, I'll be stoked.

I'm ok with a bonus inspection if it keeps problems from making it onto the train.

When the photos of that Tank 2-door were first posted (around page # 296 of the other thread I'm guessing) ArcherAce said that two PreSpec Tank Rubicons had been produced. A 2-door and a 4-door. This dealer was able to get the 2-door in their inventory.

Most vehicles today are not produced by color (the robots can paint any available color at any given time) but by trim/options. I would assume this is because it is more beneficial to the efficiency of the assembly line.

I would be OK with the 100% inspection to give me more time to hopefully receive a "golden ticket"

Here is a past status:

Built - Pending Inspection: (I) 08/09/2014 07:12 PM CDT Toledo Supplier Park, OH
Plant Release (KZ) 08/09/2014 09:53 PM EDT Toledo Supplier Park, OH

Not sure when it 'started' the build, but it rolled off the line and as released hours later. All depends on if there is a rail car awaiting that Jeep or not, oh and you do not get selected for inspection.

Those were pre-release runs. Archer has already commented that those were the only ones to roll off the line. They aren't starting the runs until 9/2 (maybe the Friday before or something).

Careful what you wish for... I am going nuts right now on what ever the hell is holding my Jeep up.
