If I could, I would. My parents are flying out tomorrow to visit my brother & his family in McAllen. Course, it'd have 1200 miles on it, and you'd have to get them another 700 or so miles south. At this point though, I'd imagine that's not an issue.

Not to butt in...hopefully everything is shipped sooner than later so my CRD will finally ship...barring no further delays.

Hope your CRD ships soon, but you'll get a lot more sympathy and support if you post it on the JGC forum instead of here with the 2014+ Cherokee discussion.

Yeah, I am sure the logistics of shipping 18K+ vehicles is causing some bottle necks. It will smooth out soon hopefully.

Do dealerships receive truck shipment on Saturday also?

Hmmm. Didn't I see that they've already built 24,000. So if they do two truck loads and hour that is 18 vehicles shipped per hour. It will only take 55 days to get them all out. I hope that doesn't include what is being shipped by rail.

The inventory number is not static. The factory is working two shifts. So it is a calculation of draining a bathtub full of water while the spigot is turned on.
It was published that Cherokees are actually stored on several lots. If a truck leaves each of ... say four lots... every 30 minutes that changes the shipping rate dramatically.
A lot of vehicles are being trained shipped and then trucked at other locations.

I sure hope so or the bathtub will be overflowing.

Wow. You guys sure do love math, huh! The "old" Cherokees that need the test laps are getting trucked across town - prolly 2-3 trucks an hour - to get checked out. From there, I think they are being loaded and delivered directly to dealerships without going back to factory, or straight to rail yard. So, as far as multiple yards..yep, there are. But they're also all being funneled about 5 miles down the road from my store to do some laps. So, there is basically one large shipping yard, just the old ones have to make stop at the ol' Dana test track...which is under lock n' key. Best guess is that the "new" ones are getting loaded direct, probably being railed out to alleviate shipping congestion.

So...the obvious statement that no one here wants to read is this: If you ordered yours early and you live far away from Toledo, chances are that your dealer may have a stock unit in before yours if the factory pushes out basic units to every dealer to get the pipeline primed.

Ya, it's gonna take a while to get these all shipped out.

My dealer's Chrysler Zone Representative told him that a customer order will get both build and shipping preference over a dealer order.
