Pretty terrible when you are buying a fully loaded top trim vehicle and people who buy the lesser models are getting them before you…
To some extent, higher-spec models are more likely to be subject to parts delays - simply because they have more parts.

I understand that but I have also been in D status since the middle of August. And D status is dealer has allocation and all parts are available. So if parts are available what’s the hold up? I can see if all parts were not available then ok. But idk. Just frustrating.

D means parts are available, but only in a scheduled sense - not actually in the plant.. D1 is when the factory is ready to go.

My order went in mid-July, It'll probably show up at the dealer this week.

D is scheduled, but they don't tell you WHEN it is scheduled. In theory it could be scheduled months from now. I note that just to say that "scheduled" doesn't really give you much information by the definition of what it is. I went into "scheduled" July 3, but didn't go into production until mid August. From production to getting your vehicle seems to be around a month with some doing a bit better.

For me, during the tracking of my vehicle, I utilized the Jeep Tracker System as a means to know when to reach out to the dealer to get an update, as I found the dealer always had more up-to-date information than what the tracker showed. For example, when the Jeep Tracker changed to "scheduled", the dealer was able to tell me when it was actually scheduled to go into production. When my vehicle seemed to be stuck in "Production", my dealer was able to tell me it was in "JB" status which is most likely when it was in line to get the running boards installed. The Jeep Tracker is a nice tool to share with customers and I'm glad they do but in these times of limited parts, it doesn't seem to run as smoothly as I would hope or run as I would anticipate it would run during an "old normal" production time period where there are no supply chain issues.

Do any of these dates really mean anything? Or do they only give people a false sense that they’re going to get there vehicle soon but you really aren’t. I order 7/19 I finally got “Scheduled” 9/30 with an estimated ship date of 10/17. Now looking thru this forum I see someone say they had a scheduled date of 8/18 and their vehicle was at the dealer 9/18. So I’m thinking ok I have about a month before I get my car. But then you look at others and they were scheduled 9/8 and finally on 10/6 show production. And then I see others showing estimated ship dates of 10/30 and they were scheduled back in August.

so from what I have gathered these dates really mean absolutely nothing. And that they really have no idea when you will actually get your car. I’m 10 days away from 3 months and I’m seeing people who have ordered after me already get their vehicles. Pretty terrible when you are buying a fully loaded top trim vehicle and people who buy the lesser models are getting them before you…
I think part of the random delay between scheduled and production is based on both parts and dealer specifics. If your dealer has a bunch of builds in front of you your line will be longer than dealers who have nothing in the queue.

Thanks, TxCat91 - I am enjoying it very much! It rides very well and is very quiet. It's funny, for how much I studied about the vehicle's different features, I found that once I got it, I was a little lost as there are so many features. Now that I have had a chance to play around with it a little more, I'm starting to become more comfortable. Again, it's a very comfortable ride and I'm glad I went with the model that I ordered. I'm sure you will think the same about yours.

Below is my GCLSR:

I've found the tracker to match what my dealer states, except yes, the dealer has more details with the codes. Mine is expected to arrive at the dealer this week or next, which will be interesting given my travel schedule, and my wife's is still expected end of month or first part of November.

What’s the link to this tracker?

Mine arrived at dealer today. I'm discussing with them whether I'll fly up on the 15th or 22nd. My wife's is running about 3 weeks behind mine, at this point, so two different trips unless something suddenly changes with hers.

You can add my data to your spreadsheets. Go back to post #245 for all dates.
I must say, I was impressed with shipping. 2 weeks from Detroit to British Columbia Canada.
