Re: Getting impatient.......

What's ridiculous about the whole process is that even once the vehicle is built and KZ'd it continues to sit there. Mine finished build just after midnight on 02/25, released KZ on 02/28 and it's still sitting. NO MOVEMENT! I know there is NOT a lack of trains coming out west so what I cannot figure out is why it is just sitting. They even bothered to mark it as Staged for Shipment on 03/05 and still nothing.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Jethro, Looks like you may make the TBD date of 03/21. That is 7 to 8 weeks which is about normal. Although normal seems a little slow to me. IMHO, I think 3 to 5 weeks should be the "normal" time from order to delivery. And what still blows my mind is how I got my Charger in 2 weeks, order to delivery. That seems incredibly fast for an order.

I certainly hope it makes it. Was originally estimated 03/10 and then it went to 03/07 now back to 03/21. What bugs me is I have a long weekend this coming weekend and wanted to pick it up then so the original estimate was perfect. And it was built and ready on time to make it. This has busted that plan....

Re: Getting impatient.......

My ordered Trailhawk will be arriving on 3/17; nearly exactly 6 weeks from when I placed the order. I consider that to be great service. Ths.

No activity on this thread for the last couple days. Everyone must have given up.

Jethro, although knocked back to 3/27, it looks like it is moving and that date may be real. Fingers crossed.

Re: Getting impatient.......

My KL sat on a rail car for 6 days in two locations. It's finally moving. Left North Platte, NE this morning and should be chugging through Wyoming now. ETA on this thing went from 3/22 to 3/10 to 3/17 to 3/19. This leads me to believe that these are being shipped on some type standby status? Sort of like catching a flight at the last minute. Dunno.

Anybody have any idea what "Hold Released" means? Mine had been without activity from 2/27 until 3/11 had hold released. Now on day four of whatever that is....

Hang in there everyone....if my C-TH is any indication the wait will be worth it and you'll soon forget the agony of delays. Mine is no longer a virgin....she has "desert pinstriping" on her from our first off road excursion....and still under 1000 miles!!!

When I started this thread, who knew it would grow to 13 pages and over 150 posts.

And now ETA has gone to 3/20. The KL has been sitting in Cheyenne,WY for the past 24hrs! What the **** it so interesting in Cheyenne? This thing has done more sitting than moving since it was loaded!

Re: Getting impatient.......

CFarer and I are not on a train yet, still under a snowbank in Detroit somewhere. At least they looked for and found his....
