Thanks for all the information in this thread.
I ordered mine 11/08 and got the production scheduled from jeep on 11/12. I guess the dealer forgot to put my e-mail into the order so I missed the first e-mail with VIN. I have requested that from the sales rep.
So it does seem that orders are speeding up a bit.
I have also heard that special orders jump to the head of the line.
How does one get into the enhanced information schedule I have heard about?
I ordered a Cherokee limited V-6 with active drive 2, Tech group, Luxury group. Navigation, and tow group in dark cherry red.
I did test drive a FWD Latitude V-6 and found it excellent. Not as smooth as my 04 Grand Cherokee V8 but I was still surprised with the performance and how quiet it was at highway speed.
Have a great day and thanks for all the info.
