Well, was. Mine is currently on a railcar (confirmed last night by my dealer)- seems the status updates once it hits Cassens are nonexistent.

The dealer looks at the same setup Milous does in regards to current past and future dates I wonder how your dealer has more he might have investigated for you deeper then just the Chrysler updates..

Great news for you though!

No idea, but I saw the screen (using VINVISION) with an extra update not shown my Milous myself on Friday (Casf-Eldon Yard; something shown by others but not my own vehicle in the thread), and that same dealer received the dispatch paperwork last night showing expected arrival at the Wentzville MO railhead on Thursday the 16th.

I appreciate Milous' efforts and he's done a great job juggling all these vehicles, but whatever system he is using is neither all powerful nor comprehensive. Personally, I expect the other vehicles showing the same status are likely also about to be on their way already or very soon.

Tell you what, I don't want to hijack this thread any further, so I'll put this info over in the Order Status Tracking thread.

Re: Overland Leather dash issue

Here is a crappy cell pic I took to show you guys the issue. You can notice the different color shading that now extends back about 6". This is all seperated leather.

Is that a bad stitch over on the left side of the picture?

Re: Overland Leather dash issue

Yes thats a bad stitch, and I specifically had the windshield tinted to 35% because of the dash peeling

Re: Overland Leather dash issue

that looks like some fine "threads" coming from the stitching. Just use something to burn that little flare off and youll be fine. But yes....I agree...that dash looks bad. Hopefully its an isolated incident....

Re: Overland Leather dash issue

I was wondering if this was corrected and if you have had additional issues?
On my 2011 Overland the front left side of my dash is lifting where it meets the window. I have been in contact with customer service and after visiting the dealer they said if I pay the first $1000 the dealer (Jeep) will pay the rest. I am at 53000 miles now with the extended warranty.
When I first took it to the dealer about the issue they quoted me $1000 to fix it. That is when I went to Jeep customer service. Now the dealer is telling Jeep the total cost would be $2000

Jeep tells me that I am out of warranty and they would pick up the difference as long as I paid the $1000. It would be done as "good will" . I checked online and a new dash cost $2750.00.

I need to check with some local shops to see if they can fix it or maybe someone on here may know how.

Re: Overland Leather dash issue

I had a problem with the windshield defroster warping. It took 5 new ones before I got one that didn't warp . When that defroster is removed you can easily access the edge of that warping leather. You may be able to inject some glue in that void and roll it out. I would try that first before replacing the complete dash. It's a lot of money to spend and your new dash may also warp.
Good luck.
