Re: Frustated by MOPAR supply chain/Rock Rails

Frikking Mopar! Now I am pissed.

Rock rail delivery supposedly now pushed back (again) till February 20th.
I am close to pulling the plug and just buy the RRO Supersliders, this is ridiculous.

Totally non professional - this has been going on since before Christmas.

I get your mad but you need to remember Mopar probably isn't making them they come from a vendor who isn't getting them made maybe because they weren't expecting to see such demand. Jeep has since its inception been a "multiplayer" proposal when they were built for the army there were at least 3 manufacturers building them (Willys,Ford and GM) ...I seem to remember 5 but can't for the life of me spit out the last two

Re: Frustated by MOPAR supply chain/Rock Rails

Maybe the supplier was too busy making the 'trailhawk' rock rails?!

Re: Frustated by MOPAR supply chain/Rock Rails

Guys, thanks didn't mean to come off so whiny. Unfortunately, patience has never been one of my virtues. Well over 3 months so far of trying to find some rails.

By the way last I checked, there was only one set of the Trailhawk rock rails in the system nationally.

The part # is 82213525. What is interesting is they are charging $895.00 retail for these versus $850 MSRP for the tubular rock rails. I haven't seen the Trailhawk rails in person but they don't look nearly as substantial nor do they stick out as far as the ones I've been trying to buy.

What really puts me off is my Jeep dealership telling me they have ETA dates, and it is constantly being pushed back. I highly doubt they are manufacturing many and I knew they came from a vendor.

Not likely!

The "Trailhawk" rockrails are even harder to find!

As of 2/5/13 there is one pair available in an east coast Mopar warehouse and no expected delievery date for more??

Mopar part #82213525
MSRP $895.00
Dealer Cost $671.00
Weight 49lbs.

Good luck getting a set of those anytime soon!

Re: Frustated by MOPAR supply chain/Rock Rails

The farce continues - pushed back ETA date to March 5th. This is the 4th time this Jeep dealership has told me the estimated delivery date has been pushed back. As far as I can tell, the vendor who makes these is in question as there is virtually no supply anywhere.

Time for me to quit bitching and look into the aftermarket rails instead. No more patience for vapor products. I told the dealership it would be better to tell customers there is no supply available and none in sight, then lie to their customers and continually push back the delivery estimates every 2 weeks. What a crock!

Re: Frustated by MOPAR supply chain/Rock Rails

Update on the update update.

Supposedly the rails are supposed to be in now on March 13th per my dealership - I still wonder if the Jeep vendor is even producing these things. I find it odd to see how rare they are in the real world. After the 13th comes - if the rails are not here - I am going to order after market finally as I am definitely NOT the most patient person in the world. It's already been a 4 month wait at least.
