They’ve said multiple times, end of quarter 2. That’s the 2nd quarter or “spring” quarter. Q2 ends at the end of June. Spring ends on June 21.
Ok, I stand corrected. Sorry I jumped there. Maybe its cause my current DD XJ has ball bearings wearing out in the HVAC fan and it makes a terrible grinding noise, just started this last cold spell. I would delete my previous post but I think that is sort of a BS way to go about it, so I will just own up to my mistake.Hate to be negative but this has all been known, the official forum even had a piece on it a few weeks ago. https://www.jeepgladiatorforum.com/jt-gladiator-will-hit-showrooms-in-june/
ha, i saw that news article that its coming in june, guess i didn't see that the ordering was also pushed back.Ok, I stand corrected. Sorry I jumped there.

Sorry FCA and Jay, I am just getting impatient.
I don't know but my guess is they are probably taking order before production. So if you order in April the wait will be long. If you order in June the wait will be even longer as you will have all the April/May orders in front of you that probably haven't started yet. If you order in Sept, maybe the back log (self created by FCA) will be caught up and the order will come faster? Plus production usually starts slow at first and picks up as the line learns each step. Maybe the back log last longer or grows by Sept? Maybe it will be caught up by August?So would this be like 10 week arrival after ordering?
Just to be clear. You do know the tires on the Rubicon are Wildpeak AT3Ws. Optional Wildpeak MT.I'm perfectly OK with this! More time to get my sh!t together financially. And now, hopefully, the lag time between production launch and Ecodiesel launch will be shorter. It is my hope that I keep this thing for 20 years or so, like the only other new vehicle I bought (97 TJ), so I will wait for the one I want.
To me, this is my classic muscle car. The JT Rubicon diesel is the '60s Mustang GT or Camaro SS of today, including the red accents inside. The fact that in 1968 you could buy a hopped up muscle car right off the truck and go race it, is now a hopped up (442 ft lbs of torque) Jeep trail/overland/sport touring rig I can drive off the lot, load it with outdoors crap, and go run the Rubicon if I want, is absolutely HUGE.
My build will be a very minimal Rubicon. Cold weather package, Hard top, trailer brake control and proximity entry. No desire to have any of the upgraded electronics like nav or safety crap. Don't need leather either. I may pop for LEDs. I will add an AEV front bumper and a winch, and some sort of ladder rack for my roofy (roof top tent). That's it.
Now, if BFG will make me a custom set of KO2s with Batmobile red sidewall stripes, I'd need some serious alone time (to take care of some business that nunya wanna know about).
This in 35" KO2s... On a black Gladiator Rubicon.
