Re: WK2 DownUnder

Goodaye Guys, Ordered WK2 Overland 3 May. Dealer phoned me today. Just made the factory August build program with delivery (maybe) early November thru to before Christmas. Later orders will go into October build schedule with delivery in NY. No Aust orders being built during Sept. The good news though, August+ builds will be to 2012 standard. Rgds

I own a freight forwarding / logistics company and can track vessels through various shipping lines etc but could not see how to track on this site, I'd be keen to find out
There is no tracking for the vessel on this site.
The next update after bieing loaded is when it is unloaded. VIN off Vessel.

Fideleo docked the day after Mine and Enforcers vehicle loaded.
But I don't trust Chrysler's tracking to be accurate to the day.
When Fideleo left Baltimore for Savannah next destination was Bremhaven Europe. But now I see it is Brisbane, checked it after seeing your post suspect this is our ship. Chesapeake Highway was originally heading to Melbourne but changed course after Veracruz. The next one was Green Lake at Suez, still could be coming to the west.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Got it back from the auto sparkie last night with both the supplementary power cable to the rear and the brake controller all installed and powered up.

Some photos showing the mounting of the controller.

Cheers Chris

Re: WK2 DownUnder

That looks like the best position for it. Nicely installed, looks neat and usable.

For info, I'm in the freight / logistics game ... and can track most vessels / lines etc.

Here are some updates......
Vessel: FIDELIO

Voyage: CF121-FDE

The sailing schedule and ports of call are subject to change without notice. Note: Red ports of call means the vessel has already sailed. Port Country Arrival Departure BREMERHAVEN GERMANY 03/07/2011 06/07/2011 ZEEBRUGGE BELGIUM 07/07/2011 08/07/2011 BALTIMORE, MD U.S.A. 18/07/2011 19/07/2011 SAVANNAH, GA U.S.A. 21/07/2011 22/07/2011 MANZANILLO PANAMA 27/07/2011 27/07/2011 BRISBANE AUSTRALIA 20/08/2011 21/08/2011 PORT KEMBLA AUSTRALIA 24/08/2011 24/08/2011 MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA 27/08/2011 27/08/2011 FREMANTLE AUSTRALIA 01/09/2011 02/09/2011 SINGAPORE SINGAPORE 10/09/2011 11/09/2011
The irony here is the Fidelio is due Brisbane Fisherman on 20/8, just 5 short minutes away from our facility, yet my GC will continue on to Port Kembla for the Sydney dealer to deal with . I'll be getting it up to Brisbane by car carrier once deal is finalised.

Chesapeake Highway seems to be operated by KLine and is presently (today) in Charleston.

Green Lake is presently in Egypt.

I don't think these vessels are in the picture.

Cheers

Re: WK2 DownUnder

had a chat to the dealer last night.

apparently he is trying to get me the saddle interior.

We shall see

EDIT: Is all the information available from the Tracking Number? I wouldn't mind having a look at my order details (considering my contract has a lot of maybes on it lol)

VIN/VON will track the car but will not give you any details on the build.
And build sheets are only available after the build.
If it has reached D1 status no changes can be made.

Have you been given a build date?

PS you cant have saddle I have got it

Don't give up keep pushing them the dealer may need to submit the change several times.
If they have the build date they must have the VON. VIN should come before they start the build.
They had to submit the change request 5 times on mine before it got approved.

What colour did you end up getting?

Tried to PM you today but was rejected .....I received the following message:

"Sorry, you can only send messages to the Co-Owners group until you have 10 posts."


Being new to JeepGarage I'm not sure what Co-Owners group means. Maybe you can PM me? Plus I've only made 4 posts to date.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

You need to become a level 4 supporter then you can have it tracked.
check out this thread : NEW Build status tracking By Milous...
