Has anyone received their Renegade as custom ordered yet? I might want to go that route, but afraid of the unknown.... :/. I know the wait time is like 16 weeks, but CAN we get MySky with the custom order?

Opinions?

Here in the US, custom ordering has only been active for a little over a week, so nobody has revived theirs yet.

I have a MySky on order since 4/10 and it hasn't moved in status beyond BA (new order).

I was told (at the NYIAS) that the mysky would NOT be available in the US on 2015 models due to leaks in the European models. They should start producing the 2016's in Oct/Nov for availability around Jan. The guy went so far as to say "that's why all the ones here have it, we can't sell them".

Not saying this guy was with Jeep or if he was just some local guy with a manual to talk to people at the show, but that's what he said when I asked him.

Also, my local dealership said custom orders are a max of 4-6 weeks (which sounded too good to be true) and that the mysky option wasn't even in the ordering tool they had and the leather option was "unavailable with an unknown ETA for placing orders" but others have said they've gotten Limiteds with leather already.

I ordered with My Sky, and status is BX.
Would like to know if true or not all the scuttlebutt about not in 2015 model.
I would think would not go to BX mode unless it could be built with all options selected. I took Winter package and Manual My Sky...and that is it...on a Trailhawk.

Your order would not have gone to BX if it wasn't going to be built as configured (which means with MySky and as a 2015 model).


Some dealers have claimed they can't order a custom Renegade at all, others have said they can't order MySky and can do it in the normal 8 weeks, and the "official" statement from Jeep to dealers is that custom orders are now available for Renegade and to advise customers of an up to 16 week lead time.


Who to believe? Right now, the fact that you've got a MySky in BX tells us that the order checks out and is ready to be scheduled for build. When you go into D1, we'll know for sure as that means it's been sequenced for production.

yeah that was my understanding from that status...that no options were holding it back.
There has been so much speculation on My Sky...
I see on another thread someone said their order went to C with My Sky

Just to put in my two cents...

I've contacted two dealers... One says they cannot do any Renegade orders, and told me "Ignore what you see online"... and the other dealer said to come on in and I could order the Renny using their 'EZ Order System'. Whatever that is.

After a call to Jeep customer service, I was told that I'd be able to order and that all jeep dealers have been given instructions on how to proceed.


Funny part is... the dealer that said no is the biggest Jeep Dealer in the state of Florida. Go figure.

So now that you put their statement online, we can safely ignore it? >:D
There are enough of us that have POC's showing Sales Orders with VON's for 2015 MySky equipped models, so I think that pretty much debunks the idea that dealerships aren't allowed to take orders (or ones that have MySky).

As Foobar mentioned, ordering just became available this last week/this week after some training from the Jeep representative.

I was able to place an order yesterday. At first they told me that MySky wouldn't be an option due to manufacturing issues. However the week of ordering they said that they are now able to order it with it, so they can only assume the issues have been resolved.

After watching every MySky video I could find I decided to opt out of it because I felt the panels weren't designed that well. I also didn't like the fact you need to stick them in a bag after you take them off.
