MOTS does not show the location ID for obvious security reasons... CRDs are a HOT item if you couldn't tell
Does that usually mean they are done with inspection though?

From an aussie jgc 2014 crd owner.... I find this thread so amusing and great stress relief from dealing with jeep australia.... I hope one of the crew get a picture of the train carrying the 1st shipment of american crd's.

The engine and transmission are amazing.... and was pleasantly surprised by the responsiveness of the engine... but the best thing is the fuel economy. It was definitely worth the wait. Built 1 April delivered 26th July.

All I can say is lucky shannon's car doesn't need to go down under... or he might not get it until 2015.

Yes and No, if it is not KZ there is a reason. If it is not KZ they could very well bring it back in and do something else on them. With a product launch this is more common. (Cherokees have been in storage for weeks leading up to the release).

And mine is 298xxx and was built 9/6. Luck of the draw, I suppose.

Mine is still 10/10. Looks like the date move only affected GC's further along in the process.

Another down-under CRD owner.

I have a bottle of champagne on ice waiting to crack for when Shannon (or whoever is first) to receive it.

We also expect pics of course.

Looking at what is in MOTS all the Estimated dates that were given prior to the seat bracket conspiracy have shifted around.

Those of us D1 after that seem to have held firm to our date so far.

If you guys want to hunt for easter eggs, go to http://maps.Google.com and search for "Charlevoix St. Detroit MI".

That is a street that runs into the West side of the JNAP perimeter. The street turns into a drive that continues into the plant. Along that drive to the North you will see rows of Jeeps, end to end, in Satellite View. Also notice the railcars immediately to the West.

So the question is: is this the "Charlevoix Yard" where our beloved CRDs are sitting?

Here is to hoping you can crack open that bottle sooner than later. Still wonder why they list all the finished CRD's as being in inspection, rather than KZ. Wondering if there is something they all need before release. (possible new u-connect update, back ordered air freshener, back order of blinker fluid....)
