Thanks for all of the info! Any idea when it's scheduled to get trucked out of Nitro?

VOTS takes a break between 7:30AM Friday and 7:30 AM monday as the friends of VOTS need a little R&R during that time.

Should be home late on the 15th, or the 16th at the latest. Still think you will have yours first, since I can't go down till the 13th. I am guessing you will have yours within a week to a week and a half. The race is on
I'll refer back to that post about getting people to buy in to the process and program. Those cameras aren't unique to BMW.

On the other hand, I can likely take a look around for you. Ordering will definitely take you longer and your unit will be at your dealer well before that. There may be ways to see what is close to you though. I will take a look and see if I have that info today.
Send me the problem children and I'll poke.

Chiv, can't believe your's hasn't been even KZ'd yet!

Just when I get hope things are moving along the whole process seems to go in slow motion.
There are all levels here on the forum.

Once things get to KZ status, it's mostly up to the shipper to get them loaded and moved on. I am not as familiar with the intricacies and details of the plant->transport process as the rest of the folks though.

My wife called the dealership this morning to expedite PDI ... So she can "have her marriage back". I guess she's getting tired of one word detached conversations in between screen refresh cycles.

Good luck, looks like you guys flew by my town already while I'm just sitting in IL now. Guess skik will be the first of our initial train group to get a diesel Jeep home

I flew over Marshalltown Friday on an Angel Flight from Rochester, MN to Joplin, MO. Had I known I would have looked for rainbows coming out of the train....

Re: 2014 diesel production

Looks like my dealership has a second diesel that's "in transit" as well as mine. Any way to check and see what the status of it is? VIN: 1C4RJFBM5EC331184

Re: 2014 diesel production - 22P vs. 22R

Just noticed in the Canada Sales Brochure, the Overland CRD shows the code 22P for the diesel, while the Summit shows code 22R for the same engine.

Does anyone know what the difference is?

Just the difference in options required (and standard features) between the Overland and Summit

Maybe because Summits have Quadra drive included with the engine?

Re: 2014 diesel production

I just received a call from a very nice lady at Chrysler that said my SFU (not her exact words) has been loaded on a rail car and I should have it in a few days, certainly no later than the end of the week.

I am astonished... and a bit skeptical.
