Nice going Desert Hiker and thanks ... looks like the thread you started has been useful to a lot of us

It allows us to vent for the unusual long wait for our rides.

Enjoy your new baby ... we will be joining you in spirit soon I hope

It certainly is not Rodeo time. Which is fun.
Ahh, memories of the opposite sex at Frontier Days..........

Yeah, the dug it out, moved it, and forgot about it. They must have located it today as there is an update on MOTS. "Hey, here it is." "OK, let's go have lunch now." 12 weeks + 2 days now.

Guess I am waiting on the train with Gunny and CFarer. Do we need to go up there with a 'Tim the Toolman Snowblower' so we can move all the snow out of the way to get them loaded and train moving.

It has pretty much melted now, cept for the drifts, which are solid blocks of ice. I think you would need one of these;

Looks like my TH is finally on the way to the dealer. Thanks for the peace of mind everyone and hopefully we'll all be in our vehicles sooner rather than later.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Gunny, not even a "Ramp Compare Inventory" for you in six days. I think they did lose yours. Sorry. Still could make the 26th if it starts moving soon.

RMack, Congratulations. Tell us how you like it. We can live vicariously through you.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Yeah, I think so. I checked the temps in Detroit yesterday, and the low was 12. So at least they're getting a good 'cold soak'. Maybe the diesel is fully gelled and it won't start so they just move to the next gasser?

Re: Getting impatient.......

Man, I can imagine how frustrating and annoying it must be to have your new Cherokee taking so long to get from the factory to your driveway.

But don't forget, there are some of us who don't even have a delivery to look forward to. It's now 13 weeks and 2 days since I placed my order and paid the deposit yet my KL remains in D1 status. True, I ordered Eco Green which, in hindsight, was not smart. Plus, this is an Canadian order, which I can't do anything about but now seems to be a disadvantage.

Regardless of these handicaps, it remains discouraging to have absolutely no clue when I will be enjoying my new Jeep.

I feel for you. AT least your are looking at it from the halffull perspective.
