Re: News 13 in toledot!

I like how they did show the actual employees who build them.

Most assembly plant videos just view the body shop, the marriage of the drivetrain to the body, then immediately skip to rolling off the line, not caring a bit about the people who build them. Good job, 13ABC!

Re: News 13 in toledot!

Why not an option for a video of your Jeep being built?
I can not see any reason it could not be done.

PLENTY of reasons why.

I can name a few right now.

PILOT BUILD!

Let's say you order a 2019 Cherokee... but on the same line, at the same time, there might be a new "KM" Cherokee right behind it, can't let anyone see future product. That's why whoever released those pictures of the white Trailhawk earlier this year got fired.

Then, an automaker might have a special assembly method. Do you want your competitor copying you?

Even though you guys THINK you saw everything up close and personal on these cameras, there were some sections of the plant that were not authorized to be captured on pictures or video.

EDIT:

Ooooooh, I see not EVERYTHING is new in TNAP:


I spy something coded "02KJ" !!!!

And yes if anyone was wondering, we are still using stuff coded "92ZJ" ... and "99WJ" .... and "05WK" .... and, duh, "11WK"

And with that said... it must be nice to have the line move with you, instead of like at JNAP, where you move with the line... I'm not going to lie, to anyone who works at TNAP.... I'm jealous.

(I don't work on the line anymore though...)

... and a happy seat. Would have been nice to have one of those when I used to install the side airbags. I basically had to do it all blind.

Oh, and the water test... yeah, you REALLY DO NOT want to be inside of that booth. They're not lying when they say "high pressure"...

... and why does it seem like NOBODY is logged into PFS?

Re: News 13 in toledot!

If I worked there, I wouldn't want to be on camera all day long. I may want to scratch my nose or something.

However, I know a snapshot as it came off the line would sure be appreciated.
