Speaking for myself, I have only posted one date - September 8th, 2015, and that date has been and still is dead accurate.

The 8th is considered the "Job 1" date, which is when production officially starts rolling. During the week prior to that date, it is normal for the plant to run a few small batches of the new model year vehicles to make sure everything is running smoothly.

So, given the "small batches", does it mean that it's possible that some that have ordered already might actually get theirs *before* the official start date? That could explain a whole lot as to why some people are getting pre-9/8 delivery dates.

As we speak, no 2016 retail models have been built yet. Prior to production start, delivery date ETA's that are near the production start date are typically not very accurate and are more of a "placeholder". The chances of a dealer receiving a 2016 prior to 9/08 are slim to none. I suppose it's possible a dealer in Michigan *could* get one close to the 9/8 date, but it still has to be built and pass QC.

They do ship out of Toledo.. Which is why he prob means Michigan because Toledo is 30 mins away from Metro Detroit

EDIT: Or not XD

Hey Milous thanks for all you are doing! Was wondering if you have seen a BBE or at least a picture of a BBE? If not, think we will be seeing it for the first time tomorrow? Got a Tank BBE on order and am super excited!

I don't work at the plant, you'll have to check with Archer...

Not sure if they will release any pics tomorrow, didn't see any with the advance Press Release but anything is possible (or not possible) with FCA.

I've seen one bbe, built a month or so ago along with a tank Sahara with green leather.

Why do you think we'll see one tomorrow?

I assumed as much, but thanks for the confirmation. I'm just waiting to be able to order one, never mind worrying about deliveries! C'mon Granite Crystal Metallic!!!

Tomorrow, September 1st, is when the 2016 model year press releases are released (midnight tonight actually). The advance copy I got did not have any pics of the BB, so it still remains to be seen if Jeep will issue any pics tomorrow. If the past is any indication, the first pics will come when they arrive on dealer lots!
