I'm pretty new to this but it's my understanding that you don't get a VIN till after you hit D1. Do you mean VON? Have you asked your dealer what they think the problem is?

We got a VON after 1 week, then waited 2 more weeks and received the POC which included the VIN and status indication of D. Still waiting for D1.

Oh wow! Now that's frustrating. Tonight I read the status on my Willy's Wheeler W JKU and then read your post. I should just chill out in comparison. Mine is:

Date ordered:*03/09/2016
Current Status:*KZ
D1 status date:*03/16/2016
Estimated delivery:*04/04/2016 - 04/10/2016
Built pending inspection:*03/29/16 02:58:23 PM
Production Status KZ Received 03/29/16 03:36:38 PM*
Ingate / Rebay at Facility 03/29/16 06:41:00 PM TOLEDO, OH*

It's built, but apparently sitting in the factory parking lot for the last 8 days waiting to be loaded on a railcar to travel to, I would guess, Jessup MD. Can't imagine it will be delivered this week as scheduled. Wish I could could just go get it and drive it home. :-(

Hope yours progresses soon.

If waiting isn't hard enough, knowing your finished Jeep is sitting in a rail yard for days, it's killing me!

My order is also marked as a sold order with VIN in D status with no D1 yet. :/ Patience is the hardest part of ordering as I guess there's no method we can really predict. I was told by jeep chat that my order is looks like it's scheduled to go into production around 4/18.....no clue why that time frame was given other than I must of had something/s on my order that is not in stock yet to enter into the "D1" build phase. I'm hoping that date will get bumped up! If that ends up when my order hits D1, it will mean almost a month after placing order.

Curious?? Did you get the Hard Top headliner?
I'm also waiting to hit D1 and know sometimes that can prolong the build status...I guess we have to just keep telling ourselves it will all be so worth it in the end!

No headliner on ours, just the Freedom top. I think it might be the heated front seats (for the wifey) or the side air bags? Nothing else looks like it would be "odd" unless the hold up is from the "everybody orders this" list? Who knows?

Patience has never been my strong suit, but I can learn...

Yes, either way its a guessing game for any of us to try to figure out what would be the hold up/part/s not in stock. My order is a JKURHR (comes with heated front seats/leather) with almost all options except remote start.
Yes....I think we will HAVE to learn! haha Good Luck to the both of you!

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

I ordered my new 75th anniversary wrangler at the beginning of March. Got my VIN today, after some phone calls and emails and finally a personal visit to the dealership. They apparently had been sending my updates to the wrong email address... They say its D1/E. Can it be both of those codes?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Well I got crappy news from my dealer just now...

Turns out that even though my Jeep is here in San Diego (arrived 3.5 days ago - early Sunday morning), it may be awhile before it makes it the last 10 miles to the dealership.

About a month ago, for all vehicles coming to the San Diego area, Chrysler changed the unload location from Mira Loma (in LA) to San Diego; which, in theory, would be a good thing but apparently the SD railyard is EXTREMELY slow in unloading vehicles.

My salesman said that the vehicles that arrived today on the delivery truck had been sitting at the railyard for over 2 weeks.

Also, he said that the railyard does not allow the dealership to go pick up vehicles with their own truck (Will Call), and that I'd just have to wait for the regular auto carrier.

So it's very likely to take longer to go the last 10 miles than the first 2300 miles. It only took 12 days to get here from Toledo.
