You'll be able to see VIP forum threads for Vehicle Tracking Status which are only visible as a premium member.
I see that but I'm not sure how to obtain a VIN/VON since I asked the dealer and he said I basically didn't need it. Can I get it from Jeep?

Call your dealer back and ask for your VON, tell him that you are going to track it by calling Jeep Chat. If they don't have a VON for you that means they haven't placed your order yet.

I'm willing to bet that since you ordered Friday night that your order won't get entered until tomorrow sometime. (Some dealers have a specific person that enters the orders once a day)

And I'm sorry to say that if your dealer says they can't track your Jeep order they are lying to you. They have a couple internal systems (VINVision/Dealer Connect) that allows them to see/track any given vehicle in the FCA system.

You should probably also get a copy of the order sheet from your dealer too. It has the Von on it as well as all the options you chose. It wouldn't hurt to double check those items... My dealer handed me a copy on the spot.

That's very helpful thank you. Now when I call tomorrow I can just ask for that!

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Here's a question. Like a previous poster mentioned, my jeep may not have even been ordered yet because I literally signed paperwork at 10:30pm on Friday. I just looked at my bill of sale and a VIN is listed. Do you think that's a legit VIN?

Bill of Sale???
You shouldn't need to sign anything, all you did was order a Jeep.
What did you sign?


You mean a POC (Priced Order Confirmation) sheet?

A POC will look like this and the VON and VIN would be listed at the top of the page:

I have one of those too. No VIN or VON. The "bill of sale" doesn't actually have a title on it. It just states the price of the car and the details of the sale, trade in ect. My husband thinks the VIN on that sheet may actually be off of another car and they drew it up just so that I had something to sign. I'm calling the dealership tomorrow to verify.

Gotcha.

Yeah, sounds like the VIN is just a placeholder, no way you would have a VIN at the time of ordering.

Thanks, and thanks for all of your other input. My husband just laughed at me and said "It's going to be a long six weeks isn't it?"

He's right but it's been my dream car for 20 years and I still can't believe I'm getting one.

Welcome to the waiting room BeepBeep! I've been wanting a Jeep for couple decades as well! Ordered my first Jeep last week!
Hope you get dealer delivery this week SoCal. Can't wait to see your new ride!

Yes! I'm in the same position as you. Ordered my JKURHR on 3/23 and now have VIN and in "D" status according to Jeep Chat. They just emailed me saying that looks like production is scheduled to start......4/18. :/ for my order, dates of course could possibly change. I'm wondering if they must be awaiting more of the JKURHR parts, etc as both of ours are marked as new order.

Congrats, and welcome to our waiting room! Hope you got everything sorted out with your dealer and have your VON/VIN # for your order. I'm already anxiously waiting too, been a member of the "Jeep " family but now after also always wanting my Wrangler for around the last 20 years (since before I could drive, lol)I finally ordered! Can't believe I didn't ever do this much sooner? Just heard for my JKURHR, it might not go into D1 status until mid April....
