Certainly not scheduled so far; the order is not placed a week after signing up for it and paying a very sizable deposit. Rant Over

The build sheet will tell you everything about your vehicle. Some members have found that upon checking the build sheet, the car hasn't been built to their order, e.g. wrong colour interior or option such as quadralift not fitted. Better to know at the time so you can cancel the order or get them to redo it, rather than wait six months and find out once the vehicle is in Australia that you are not getting what you thought you were getting.

When I ordered my Overland, the dealer said they'd throw in a set of mats. When I checked the build sheet, I saw Luxury mats were included, so I went back to the dealer and pointed that out. He is now throwing in slush mats. which retail for $280 out here. Without the build sheet, I would have been none the wiser.

And the money goes to keeping this forum open.

It is up to you if you want the build sheet.
If you like to know the full specs its on the build sheet.
Later down the road could add to the sale shows all the factory fitted options.

I like having it, I Like to know the finer details. Do I have extra cooling? its on the build sheet. Does yours? try asking your dealer they know shit. I asked mine and he answered incorrectly.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

And it's only a matter of an extra US$5, which is what, about A$2 at the moment

Allypally, it seems that a couple of boxes of your parts are also on my train, which has just departed. Or maybe it's the Allen keys...

Codes AND descriptions. Having just paid the US$30 last night, I'd say I got more out of my build sheet than I did with Tracking status.
Which reminds me - whats self leveling suspension mean (on a base Laredo)?

I think you are on a different train. At least as far as Toledo. Maybe they will meet up there.
At this point in time, my guess is that both of our cars will be on the TIRRANNA which departs Baltimore on 17th. That should put it in Port Kembla around 18th April.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Yes it looks like they left at a similar time but mine is now in PA.

Can I ask where you check the shipping info? I've tried googling but don't really know what I'm looking for. Cheers.

2wglobal.com look for scheduling and then I think from memory it is Oceania inbound and it will show the ships time tables. Then just google the ships to see if they are roro vehicle carriers (roll on roll off) there are a few that are container vessels with some roro decks.
