That's great news. However, dont expect to get your hands on it for another 2 weeks after that.
I guess your car is on the ENDURANCE, which is due to dock in Brisbane on the 7th.

Now you've got me worried........on the 2wglobal site they have the Endurance is leaving Baltimore on 8/2/2012.
From what I can see the Texas arrives in BNE on the 7th...
We must be looking at different stuff.

All right - it can come on any boat it likes - long as it gets here soon!
I need to step away from the internet!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I am wrong. It is not the Endurance. Also, I doubt if it is the Texas, as that is a container ship.
I think you will find it is the Tarago, which left Baltimore on the 8th Dec and is scheduled to reach Brisbane on the 9th Feb.
If you have the VIN, you can use it to check the ship.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hi all, First post. Ordered GC CRD in October and expecting delivery in 1st week of March. Waiting this long has been doing my head in and I have You Tubed it to death . I notice from the previous posts that you are able to track progress with shipping. How is that done?

I can't remember exactly. First you need a VON or VIN from your dealer. Getting that is like pulling teath. Second, you pay this site to become a level 4 member. Third, you go to Milous' thread at http://www.jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=24379 and ask Milous to track your VON or VIN. The updates are on the first post of the tread updated once daily around 9am (Sydney time) +- a few hours. Good luck!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

At this stage, it is probably not worth Tracking the car, as if it is expected in early March, it will already be on a ship.
However, obtaing a Build Sheet can be valuable. You can also get that from Milous upon request, once you become a site contributing member. I got mine and found they built the car with the wrong upholstery. These dealers are not the brightest, and some tend to be a little casual when it comes to filling out the order sheet.
If you expect delivery in early March, and Fremantle is your local port, then your car could be on the TEXAS which is due to berth on 18th Feb, or the TONSBERG, which is due on 6th March. You can expect a 2-3 week wait after the arrival to get through customs and compliance before delivery at the dealership

Also, if it is already on a ship, then your VIN will be allocated by Jeep Aus to your dealer.

Speak to your dealer and get your complete VIN.

This then can be tracked using the http://www.2wglobal.com/www/wep/ and going to Track and Trace and putting your VIN in as your Cargo ID.

This will track it all the way to port. Hope it helps
