My rents bought a new 2005 Jeep Liberty CRD in 2004 and hustles like noneother. I'm channeling hardcore patience and appreciate the hard work of all @ Jeep.
I have a 2009 Jetta sportwagen TDI. Maybe it's because we were driving german cars, somehow they knew.

All the 8/9 ordered pre-release's left are Limited CRDs. I think you will all move to "D1" soon. My guess is kaziii will move to "pre-release" next week and "D1" as soon as the week after that. Regardless, I think he will move from "Pre-release" to "D1" a lot quicker than most of us...

A very knowledgeable friend said to me recently "I have never seen vehicles go from pre-release, to D1, to build so quickly".

I think many who have order CRDs have advanced very quickly... the rest will get picked up very soon (original orders that is).

I figure that since mine has been ready for a week, and they make over a 1000 a day (I think), it is probably 7000 jeeps deep, and it will take a month to get it out

You are lucky it doesn't work that way....

I think they will inspect a few more CRDs and then they will all start to move. Including yours.

If my estimated date holds, that is 61 days from order to delivery, which I guess would have been about par. But, also I would have thought "Pre-release" to "D1" would have been less than 24 days, (The email said I should go to "D1" in about a week). Is this correct?

I scheduled the removal of my after-market radio today. I don't want to go without my backup camera or Sirius radio for very long. It's nice to have a target date to attempt to schedule around.

I think that is the interesting part. 61 days from order to delivery would be normal for a product already in production for a year or two. As this is technically a launch.... that is pretty quick.

We will see what tomorrow morning brings. I have clocked out for the night. The Jedi Master is piloting the ship now.

These four have waited the longest for their CRD's. They did everything they could; they ordered the first or second day possible; they paid their way to support jeepgarage.org. But alas, they still have not received the coveted "D1" status and most importantly the MOTS' estimated delivery date.

They are(if anyone didn't know):

kaziii - Summit CRD (SPECIAL MENTION because this one isn't even prerelease)
Matt'sGC - Limited CRD
UnsungChip - Limited CRD
and now added to the CRD left behind'ers list: JustinB60 - Limited CRD
(After all he did order the next day and all the others that ordered on 8/10 have moved on.)
Yea I am a little worried since I have had no movement... VOTS has said "production scheduled" for way too long now without it budging.

Still sitting at Production Scheduled for three weeks now. Email from Jeep said it would be up to two weeks. Kind of frustrating since I had one of the earliest estimated delivery dates (9/12). Oh well, I've been waiting over a year since I heard the first rumors of a diesel JGC. I guess a few more weeks won't matter in the long run.

Yahoo!!
I am hoping mine will fly through inspection, maybe Shannon cleared the way for us. The interesting thing is now my delivery estimate has changed from 09/09/2013 to n/a.
I figured it wasn't going to hit, but wondering why that changed (again Shannon's stayed the same even after the date passed).

I have a question on the logistics, my dealer is less than an hour from Toledo, is it possible my jeep would not even go rail car? Or is that how all cars depart?

Good luck to all in the waiting, looks like everything is picking up the pace.
