Summit goes D1 in 26 days... maybe?
 
Dealer calls me today to let me know my Summit went "D1" yesterday 03/16, with estimated "ship" date of 03/29. VIN was issued on 02/18. Color change to vehicle order was confirmed on 02/28, if that had any influence on stacking order for build?

Called Chrysler Customer Care line to confirm... they don't show anything as official as a confirmed "D1", but they did say the car was "released for build" as of yesterday, and confirmed their system shows that "estimated ship date" as 03/29. So maybe the dealer is right?? That would be refreshing. :rolleyes:

JG tracking has not yet confirmed any of this, so I guess nothing is real until Milous says it's real. But a guy can hope, right? ;) Maybe the Summit logjam is beginning to break up...???

^^^ The hotline people don't have the best updated info.....don't rely on what they say for an ordered vehicle. It does appear that some February Summit orders are going D1 now. Your initial order date would have been around 2/10 so that is consistent with what has been observed with Summit orders...improved order to built times.

The "in transit" times are still not accurate. My at the dealer date was 3/15 when I went KZ (plant release) and has been bumped to 2/21 (and I was lucky for that soon as others have been waiting in KZ for a while before getting onto a railcar).

Hopefully it's true, I ordered on 2/14 as well and VIN issued 2/18 but am still in D according to Milous and Dealer updates.

Just got the "gospel" from Milous: Vehicle is confirmed D1 as of today 03/17, and Estimated Delivery is 04/05 to dealer! Delivery timeframe may be way optimistic, but there ya go, Summits are starting to roll. MikeD, yours is next! :)

Four days from order to receiving VIN? I ordered my first-ever Jeep on March 4. I stopped by the dealership yesterday and inquired about my order and asked whether they could confirm a VIN and was told that it takes 4 WEEKS to assign a VIN. Can anyone else shed some light on this? Thanks!

^^^ VIN is assigned early - D....mostly I have seen within a week apparently wrt to dealer allocations. VIN D is just something in the computer. D1 is where it gets serious.

Thanks, Dan. There was a misunderstanding with my dealer. I spoke to my salesperson today and confirmed that my status is D1. Good news.

kaflyboy - Mine has arrived...unloaded from rail car at destination in Miami, FL. Now just a matter of them trucking it to the dealership and the dealer prep. Yesterday I stopped by the dealership and they said they had three GC's on the same train so hoping that means they will push for the transport to get them. They make money for being an order taker on me since I knew exactly what I wanted and simply ordered it there with the TL affiliate pricing and they didn't even have to give me a test drive. They want my 2005 GC for a trade-in but they better get serious on pricing or I'll just do a private party sale...I have two people that already want to buy it and guaranteed me they would match the dealer trade + sales tax if I traded in. So it would take a very high dealer trade number for them not to buy it.

I was planning on taking some photos of the new Jeep to post....I was gonna do a joke photo....but probably better I don't do that....

Yup good news for us Summit guys that ordered in Feb. Waiting here in Afghanistan for mine to go D1 so the wife can relax and enjoy it before I get home on R&R. Been here for about a month now and watching everyday. Got one or two ahead of me as I ordered ours on th 18th of Feb so we will see. I am wondering about the color choice though as you guys rememeber I ordered a white gold so will see how this works out.
