I lucked out! Got it at $500 below invoice. Dealer had not sold one and was anxious to make the sale. He actually put the order in while I waited and gave me the VON.

Re: When Could I Expect Delivery of my SRT8

Hey I'm new the this forum thing but I ordered my first srt8 last Saturday and have reading these forums like crazy trying to see when it will be here. I called jeep also and was told around 8 weeks and I read that's what you were told just wondering if you have yours yet or not? Thanks!

As of 12/6/11 the timeframe from order to delivery was 120+ days so I doubt he got his Jeep yet. Also, previously stated too is that if you become a level III or IV supporter, you can have your vehicle tracked.
Congrats on the order!

Re: When Could I Expect Delivery of my SRT8

Ok! All I have is a Von is that enough to track it? Jeep said it wasn't showing in their system yet so hopefully its ordered. I've never ordered a car before so I'm very anxious I can't imagine those who have been waiting months! Thanks for the quick response!

Re: When Could I Expect Delivery of my SRT8

The dealer just called me and said the vehicle is off restriction and would be processed like a regular order. This means about 6-8 weeks for delivery!

All new orders for SRT8 were on restriction. Dealer said that because this was a limited edition vehicle, restriction was placed on the car until they got enough orders to run the car. I guess, due to the limited market and high cost(for a jeep) orders are not as abundant as you may think.

I believe that they will only produce 2300 SRT8's ( as indicated by my dealer).

I think Milous stated somewhere that 4000 was the run for 2012 for the US market. Still, not a lot of vehicles being made.

Re: When Could I Expect Delivery of my SRT8

Does a VON guarantee you a car..still no VIN #..I only ordered a week ago how long did it take you to get your vin? I called jeep again today still not showing up in their system and they didn't say anything about restriction.

Not that anything really guarantees you a vehicle, but the VON is just an order number. I think you get a VON when your order gets accepted.....I think.

Honestly? 6 to 8 weeks is really optimistic. My order was the second week of November and my projected delivery date is 1/24/12. I also heard the 120 day thing and think that's too long. I would realistically figure on 8-12 weeks.

How long did it take for you to get your VIN?
