That means you can't order that option now but the option should be available to order sometime during the model year.

Then ask your dealer if he sent your email to Chrysler.

i got a automatic email from chrysler yesterday stating they received my order. those of you who have not heard anything yet, will definitely want to get in touch w/ the dealer to see if they did what they were supposed to do.

I ordered a GC last night. The dealer said that I missed the cutoff for January and that my order wouldn't be processed until mid Feb. They also said that build times are backed up and that it would be April before I saw my Jeep.

Not sure if they were telling me that so that I'd look harder at what they had available on the lot. Or, it could be true...

When I got home last night and discovered this thread, I called my dealer to ask about following the build progress. He didn't have a clue about any of it. In fact, he told me that there wasn't a way to be notified.

With that said, I'm assuming that my dealer didn't put my email address down when submitting my order.

Can I contact Chrysler directly and get on the list? Or do I have to continue to work with the dealer?

splitpoly,
i put my GC order in on monday night. the dealer told me the Jan cut off was wed. not sure if my order went in on tues or wed (doesn't really matter). but i got an email direct from chrysler on thurs and the 2nd one this morning. this is my first time ordering a car, so my 2 cents would be you may need to wait for the next cycle to start being processed in feb. feel bad for you b/c if you are like me you are really looking forward to the jeep.

Wow, that it quick.

I just placed my order last Friday night (Jan 27th) so the order probably wasn't placed until yesterday (Jan 30th) by the Dealer. I gave my e-mail address, so how long would you say it will take before I hear something back? (Or at least an acknowledgement, or some number to track on the Jeep Website?)

Thanks

GaryGC,
I don't know. I do know that when i put my order in the dealer told me the Jan order cut off was last wed. so it probably depends on what's going on at the plant with the orders. Mine wasn't that special of an order, just didn't have any green ones on the lot or anywhere.

I ordered mine on 1/9. I got the VON on 1/27 (friday) and it said "Scheduled Production". This morning it is at "Shipment". w00t! Dealer ETA was 6-8 weeks. Working on week 4.

I wonder how long it will take from where ever it is built (MI?) to Houston.

What build did you guys order? Laredo, Limited, Overland? 4x2 or 4x4?

I'm curious to know if there's a delay for a certain build over another.

Thanks.
