Re: 2014 diesel production

First of all, I'm happy for all who have received or have their diesels on trains heading toward them. That being said, I'm getting a little PO'ed when I see CRDs ordered weeks after I ordered ( on the first day and dropped $1,00 down) heading out to them and mine still sits as "staged for shipment" in the Java Yard.

Nothing but praise for the Jeep guys on this thread, but the schedulers ought to be taken out and horse whipped! This is getting ridiculous.

Sorry to vent, but I just hadda!!

I looked at 1PM and I was on your same train. Then at 2CT, it says
Train Arrival 11/01/2013 09:32 AM EDT On Railcar - Oakwood, MI

We are moving. Oakwood,MI is only 2 hours away from suburbs of Chicago. I just hope it does not get on another train and head East.
While Oakwood is only 2 hours away, it looks like your SFU is headed in the exact same direction mine took. Expect it to stay in Oakwood for a day, spend a day in nowhere - OH, then Ft. Wayne - IN for a day and I have no idea where else. I am in the Chicago area, that's what mine did.
Good luck!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Can't say I really get the tracking thing. I mean I understand no updates on tracking when it is in storage and I understand once it gets on a train, but...


Departed Facility 10/31/2013 10:18 AM EDT Avi - Vls Java Yard, MI

That was my CRD and 24+ hours later it hasn't yet found a home whether that is back to another yard or being put on a train. I don't get it, my CRD lost on its way to another yard? lol

Congratz to you! Make sure and tell us all your impressions. I am impatiently waiting for that call from the dealer telling me my unicorn has arrived. I told them to let me know when they get it.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Just ordered my 2014 GC Overland with the 3.0l diesel yesterday. I was told 6-8 weeks for delivery. Fingers crossed!

If he doesn't give you a call by tomorrow, let me know. I'm heading over there tomorrow to chat with him about some odds and ends and can remind him to reach out to folks.

My wife says you should buy your wife some flowers before you pick up your new Jeep - because you will be so pre-occupied with your Jeep for the next few days that you won't have time for her.

Angry Re: 2014 diesel production

I share the frustrations of those above posters who are anxiously awaiting movement of their CRDs. Looking at the "Delivered vehicles" historical data in the MOTS thread, the average time from KZ status to getting on a train is only a couple days, but it has been almost a week and I have only made it to: Departed Facility 10/31/2013 05:41 PM EDT Avi - Vls Charlevoix Yard, MI

And while this seems hopeful, no other movement for 24 hours makes me wonder what the delay is now! So Chiv, KZ status really isn't all it's cracked up to be... you may take delivery before me. ;-)

Since Brainstormer's SFU is going the same place as mine, I'm following his in hopes of getting an idea when to expect my delivery (hopefully I can get on a train in MI and get unloaded in Houston in 4 days too... but I might need to send a special email to the right VIP *grin*). Even Shannon's Jeep KZ'd a day after mine but is en-route... makes me want to use the letters dubya, tee, and eff!

I have followed this thread for the last couple of hundred of pages but must have missed the explanation for the current shipping irregularities. Will or Milous, can you say exactly why the CRDs are taking so much longer to get out of Michigan (after KZ) than all the gassers?

My SFU was apparently chosen to blaze the trail for you and Shannon. Mark said mine got to Houston as fast as he has ever seen. I'll keep watching for your guys...

Are you local to Houston?

Re: 2014 diesel production

Any idea what mine is doing at the Toledo Nitro Creek Yard? Waiting for a train I guess?
