Insane! Ordered mine on 9/17 same, Overland 4x4 black saddle with tech package and I'm still not in D1 status yet. Mind boggling.

How the hell. I mean I order mine over a month before you and I'm not D1....I'm clueless with what Jeep does. That makes the least business sense I've ever heard of. Are they working last in first out? My god.

Where do you live? I have been speculating that those who live near major metro areas may get theirs sooner... More trucks headed to major metro areas... I don't know just a thought.

Re: Any saddle interiors out there ?

I think it has to do with the number of allocations a dealer gets. The more jeeps a dealer sells, the more allocations per month they get, the faster the orders move through their system. Each dealer gets only so many allocations (all based on volume). So if you order and they run out of allocations, you have to wait until they get another allocation for your order to go through. (Or at least that's what I was told from someone I know who works at a Jeep dealer).

Re: Any saddle interiors out there ?

X2^^^^. This is probably the confusion on orders and build schedule. A lot of people are having long waits for their new overlands.

I feared this happening to me. So I went to the dealer that I usually buy from, he's about 30 miles away out in a rural small town. This dealer moves mostly trucks in large volume and a small amount of plain jane versions of the other lines from chrysler. They "never" use the entire allotment given to them to "stock" the lot. They keep 2-3 of each vehicle in low to medium trim levels so the prices are low.

They had only gotten in 3 JGC's, all Laredos. His allotment for JGC's was much larger, not to mention he had placed no order for his allotted limiteds and overlands. I placed my order which went in as pre-sold on top of being one of his unrecieved allotment. 4 weeks and 2 days later I had my Overland. It wasn't anything that would cause a hold up like tech package or saddle so it ran through quickly and I'm extremely pleased.

I'm about to order another Overland, but wanted the saddle interior, so I've waited until saddle production has started. I called my dealer this week and he said that he hasn't placed any more orders since mine and that he still has several in his allotment which he hasn't ordered. This should make the next one build on about the same time frame I hope.

If your dealer keeps his lot heavily stocked without moving extremely high volume then he has filled his allotment with lot vehicles. This will slow even a pre-sold order to that dealer.

Re: Any saddle interiors out there ?

Interesting info parker, thanks for sharing. While it doesn't make any more sense to those of us who ordered 7-11 weeks ago and still aren't even in D1, it is the total lack of information that is the most frustrating. I'm in the DC Metro area, so that doesn't seem to be the cause. Guess I should've gone with a smaller dealer with less inventory, but honestly never occurred to me that it could cost me several more weeks of waiting for my car.
