Re: Track your Newly ordered Jeep or Chrysler vehicle here at JeepGarage!

Ok, that makes sense, I just got back from Fraser Island, and I was expecting it to be arriving in port when I got back. Was wondering why it was a few days late.

Apparently, after rescuing that sailor, they let him live in the back of a Jeep until the ship reached port. Was it your's?

Maybe they made him earn his trip by going around the cars and tightening all the loose bolts the guys in the factory forgot to do....

Ah cool, thats interesting. December order, Feb build (so I'm told). Should be able to move a car from US-AU in ~2+ months - but at this point I'm just hoping the bloody car exists, and there isn't some more sinister reason no e-# has been left off (one of Jeep's seemingly infinite supply temp staff losing the initial order, during one of their permanent staff's infinite supply of training sessions?)

Re: Track your Newly ordered Jeep or Chrysler vehicle here at JeepGarage!

Mine was a Jan build, but sat in the yard for a while. It was supposed to be on the earlier boat, they seem to send one a month, but by the time it was built, did the inspection, then loaded onto a train and shunted to Balitmore, it didn't make it on time.

I think the problem is the factory is running almost full capacity, there are so many cars going out, there can be delays in the queue for trains and boats.

Gidday Webby1970,

I see you are in Brisbane and your vehicle is sitting on the wharf at Curtis Bay, Baltimore awaiting shipment. As are the vehicles ordered by Rocksfly and myself. (que the Ottis Redding song)

"Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again, yeah

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away, ooh
I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

I left my home in Detroit
Headed for the Curtis Bay
Cuz I've had nothing to live for
And look like nothing's gonna come my way......"

***************************
Clearly too much time on my hands now.

My prediction for you, Rocksfly and myself:

The car carrier Talisman is due in Baltimore on the 22 April, leaving on the 24th heading for Australia via for Savana, Manzanillo and Auckland. Due Brisbane on the 22nd May then on to Port Kembla on the 24th.

Only guesswork, so don't hold me to it. I suspect we may be taking delivery at about the same time. I have rung my dealer already and told him to pre-deliver the White Overland before the Black one or else....

Just kidding.
Gr8Ness

Re: Track your Newly ordered Jeep or Chrysler vehicle here at JeepGarage!

Hey Gr8Ness, I agree that you have too much time on your hands, also showing your age too. Showing mine that i knew the reference...
I ordered mine on the first of March so not quite as long a wait as you so I'll happily let your's be pre-delivered first.
I contemplated the white but would have blacked out the front grill and trim under the headlights but ended up sticking with the same colour as my 2011 limited which has been an awesome car.
So if the cars dock late May does that mean a late June delivery??

Great song classic in my book. Thanks for the info.

Gidday Webby1970,

Do you mean something like this? If so, that is the look I am going for, all done with vinyl wrap hopefully, including the side mirrors. I think it will enhance the look and the vinyl wrap will protect the paintwork on the front to some extent. As for delivery date, I would hope first half June.

Yep, that's the look. I've seen a 2014 around graceville that's been done and it looked good. I'm still happy with all black though. Who did you buy through, I ordered mine through Albion?
