Fantastic, time to order up the tires! I am so psyched to have found a dealer order w/ ORAII, that and the advanced tech package were my two big requirement (aside from some int/ext colors I didn't care for). I spent weeks pouring through inventory trying to find a Hemi or Diesel Overland with ORAII. That option is NEVER listed on the front page of most dealership inventory sites, I literally had to guess based on price and just pull up window stickers.

I found a couple Hemi Overlandswith ORAII and adv tech in NYC and NJ, still can't believe I found an Overland EcoDiesel, and not 20 mins from where I work...

Thanks for the info Willx and Milous, much appreciated.

I was surprised by how close the two routes are. For the "fun of it" I plugged in all of the waypoints for both routes (from historical MOTS data) and then did a path between those points (so it's not 100% accurate because it's still straight-line between the waypoints).

Detroit to Benicia, CA: 2,144
Detroit to Mira Loma, CA (which looks like the rail end for all the SoCal deliveries): 2,177

We probably have slightly more curvy routes, especially through the Rockies and Sierra-Nevadas, so they may be even closer.

But Temerarious has us beat by just a shade (again, I was surprised how close it was):

Detroit to Kent, WA: 2,260

Re: 2014 diesel production

I've seen lots of talk about floor mats. Curious if any of you are putting mud flaps or bug deflectors on you GCs? If so what are you looking at? Mud season and black fly season get pretty messy around here.

Then I take it that I just won the lottery. Just have to wait 9 more days to collect the winnings.

I'm in CT - great to meet a northeaster (not the storm). I started feeling lonely here. My SFU is one stop ahead of you in Cleveland. I also have an 11/11 estimated delivery so our rides will probably meet on the same train. Looking at historical data, our path is probably (New Boston, MI) > (Toledo Walbridge Yard, OH) > (Cleveland, OH) > (Buffalo, NY) > (Selkirk, NY) > (East Brookfield, MA). The East Brookfield yard is an automotive distribution center so we will probably get transloaded there to trucks bound to our dealers. Good luck and enjoy the ride!
