    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and also new to being a Jeep owner. I just ordered my 1st jeep a week ago. I've been searching for just the right one for a couple of months, looking at used as well as new. I finally decided to order what I wanted and got the 2017 Wrangler, Willys Wheeler edition. The dealer ordered it a week ago, and I was just curious if anyone had an idea how long it was taking for custom orders these days? Dealer said 8 weeks but I'm hoping someone else ordered a custom build and might have a better, or more accurate estimate. I didn't go crazy with options, just the Wheeler W package with the Premium Sunrider top and a tow package in the Gobe color. The color is primarily why they had to order, it wasn't available at any dealers. If anyone has ordered recently I'd love to know what your experience was. Thanks!!

    thanks Chris!...i haven't received any updates yet. I'll call the dealer and ask if they have something they can do for me to get those updates.

    Received my new jeep in less than 5 weeks! I was pretty impressed by that turn around time. Now I just need to learn all the features - very happy with the build so far.

    I have a question. Do any of these special editions come with Rubicon features. The special edition are within a couple thousand of a Rubicon. I think I would spring.
