My wife and I just returned home from placing our order for an almost fully loaded Colorado Red Trailhawk. We opted for everything but the MySky panels. I'm not holding my breath for it to be delivered in under four months but it would be great if it was.

Congrats.

What made you decide against the roof panels?
My wife and I weren't really excited about plastic panels on the roof. If the standard sun roof option that the EU Renegade's has available I probably would have it as well.

Congratz and welcome to the forums!

Excellent choice with the Colorado Red, :)

My dealer told me today that my order is in C status or tentatively scheduled. I'm guessing this still doesn't mean much but does anyone have some insight into how long on average we wait for D1? I looked at orders listed on Jeepgarage.com and it appears 4 to 5 weeks seems to be standard.

Mine was in D1 for awhile.
The first time I contacted the JeepCares site I got a reply back on October 17th it was at "Gateline Status" (aka D1). Who knows how long it was there before that. November 2nd I got a reply saying that it was built and had a VIN.
I typically email JeepCares once a week to find out what is going on. I didn't want to pay extra to have it tracked.

FYI, now that you have a VIN, I can also check on the order status for you if you PM the VIN to me.

Do you have some update on your order? I have order mine around the same time...
Nope. A week ago, 11 DEC 15, my dealer said my order showed D status which is supposedly "firm schedule: serial number assigned approx time in station 5 - days". Several days later, with my hopes up, I asked my dealer for and update hoping for D1 status and the VIN. Oh well. Day 34 no status change or VIN. As with many others more waiting is needed.

It took about 2 months for a VIN to be assigned to my TH

I never liked the hole in the roof.

I will be ordering mine on Monday or Tuesday. Are you all serious that it is like a 4 month wait if I can't find one on the lot I like? OUCH!!!!
No joke. And keep in mind the office Fiat line is that it's 4 months minimum. I'm currently at 6 weeks with no build or delivery date in site. I guess I may have to wait another couple of weeks, after the first week of January before I get a build update.

Well that motivates me to find one on the lot, even though I really wanted to order it. Thank you very much for this information, even though it wasn't really what I wanted to hear. I am going tomorrow to try to decide.

I wanted to find one on a lot somewhere and started searching June 2015. I found a 2015 that I wanted that was under 200 miles away but the dealer wasn't willing to make a trade with my dealership. The other dealership wanted me to drive the nearly 200 miles to buy from them. I decided to order one and waited to order so I could get the 2016 model. Even though it will end up being an over 4 month wait I am glad I did. The configuration I wanted just doesn't seem to be on dealer lots and if it is it is over 500 miles away.

"When will it be built" watch day 55

As of yesterday, 1/7/16, Chrysler customer assistance says my order is currently:

Gateline Schedule Order Ready To Proceed On The Line – All of the
materials needed to start the manufacturing build process have been
received. The vehicle should be entering the build process very soon.

I'm guessing this is D1 status but with no status updates from Milous on Jeepgarage and @Crafty42 being in the same status since early/middle of last month I'm taking "...entering the build process very soon." with a grain of salt and not holding my breath for movement anytime soon. Who knows maybe I'll see some change before the beginning of week 9.
